I've had this phone for the last 8 months and love it, even though I've suffered through the hotspot/WiFi fiasco that was thankfully solved with an update. Unfortunately, two more issues have reared their ugly heads since then.
I've been getting an error whenever I plug my G6 in to charge. It's sporadic, but more often than not, my phone thinks there's moisture in the usb-c port....but there isn't any. In fact, the phone's never even had anything spilled on it let alone been dropped in water. The message I keep getting is something to the effect of "charging blocked. Moisture detected in usb-c port."
I used to be able to shut the phone down completely, and then charge it while it's off, albeit very slowly. Now, when I plug the charger into the phone, it forces my phone to turn on, and the cycle repeats itself. When it does allow me charge, I get maybe at most 10-15% of a charge, and the message pops up again! I have to either shut off/restart the phone, or wait for the message to disappear (which could take upwards of 2 hours) and try again, crossing my fingers that I can get some sort of a charge out of it.
I should say that wireless charging still works perfectly, albeit at a much slower pace. At home, this isn't too much of an issue as I have wireless charger to fall back on, but on the go charging is hit or miss (emphasis on the "miss").
The second issue to crop is the fact that just about every time I restart the phone, I get a message stating my SD card is corrupt. It doesn't happen at every single restart (notice how many times I restart the phone a day?) but it happens the majority of times.
To the best of my reasoning, the two issues are not related in the sense that I can removed the SD card before powering on my phone and I'll still get the charging blocked issue, and other times I'll have the SD card inserted and will be able to get somewhat of charge untill that God forsaken message pops up again.
Has anyone else been having this issue?
