Android phone shuts off

... or freezes. However you want to describe it.

LG G3 Vigor. About 1.5 years old. Every so often - and becoming more frequent - I can't turn it on with the normal double tap on the screen. I have to take the battery out, re-install, and turn it on with the button on the back.

Any ideas? (Don't say "switch to iPhone". I refuse to join the lemmings.)

Go to an LG G3 Vigor forum and ask the question or read previous post on that site.


Here's a Google search with many sites to query.

I had to do a search to see what lemmings meant. I have an IPhone and I'm sure not one!
I also don't have problems with mine.

For some reason I found this to be very funny. Don't know why, just did.

One of the articles said to back up my settings and re-set to factory settings. How do you back up a smart phone? (Yes, I'm that low tech!)

I don't usually just leave links, but I did a Google search and found this:
