LG is one of our favorite Android phone makers right now. The LG G3 can hold its own against the best smartphones around, but you may still occasionally run into trouble. We’ve identified some common LG G3 problems and pulled together a list of workarounds or potential fixes to help you address each one.
Problem: Disappearing apps
A lot of LG G3 owners have been surprised to find that games and apps have been disappearing. Things they’re sure they had installed, but haven’t used in a while just vanish. You’d be forgiven for being skeptical when behavior like this is described as a feature, but it really is this time.
- The LG G3 is equipped with Smart cleaning and so anything you haven’t used in a month is liable to be cleaned away. Go to Settings > General > Smart cleaning and you’ll find Temporary files, Download folder, and Idle apps categories that it wants to clear.
- You should set the check interval by tapping the Menu key in Smart cleaning to get the Settings and then choose the Notification interval and Idle time period.
