I had mine for 4 years...and it just died...
Not the battery just the system...I never ever had to worry about the battery life...I would go to work on 100% and get off even in ot and would still have no less than 90%...
This is the BEST PHONE THAT I HAVE EVER HAD...
BRING IT BACK ‼❣‼❣‼

Must Unlock Phone to do Data Tethering!
This is not LG's fault, but I want people to be aware that they cannot do data tethering unless they have the phone unlocked.
The android 7.1.1 operating system that's installed on this phone provides a Wi-Fi hotspot feature for data tethering. However, if the the phone is purchased through Boost Mobile, you will be using Sprint's network. The phone comes equipped with a Sprint SIM and is therefore locked to the Sprint network.
To perform data tethering through the Sprint Network, you have to pay for a subscription, but that's only if you are solely through Sprint.
The catch 22 is that Boost Mobile never offered a data tethering subscription even though they are through Sprint. So essentially you are left with a phone that has the capacity to perform data tethering, but can't because Boost Mobile never provided that option through Sprint.
The only solution would be to contact Sprint and have the phone unlocked, but you can only do that if you meet Sprint's "unlocking eligibility requirements".
Here is a proof that you cannot perform data tethering with the original Sprint SIM:
Toggle the Wi-Fi hotspot switch in Settings > Networks > Tethering > Wi-Fi hotspot.
You will get an error: "Data tethering is unavailable. You are not subscribed to data tethering".
Refer to the pictures.
