    Hi, I held the power button for 10 seconds and now it won’t turn on. When I push the power button it shows me a picture of the battery being filled up. I did not check the battery status before I started. Is this what is supposed to happen and am I just going through a normal battery charge?

    • Your Nexus 4 is in power off mode and charging now.

              Sorry, I made an assumption you were in the US. Never the less
              I still can’t turn my phone back on.

              • Never the less is one word: nevertheless. You’re welcome.

          • Just hold on power button until you get a vibration. It should be turning on then.

    holding the power button for 10secs is also not working.
    Is there any force reboot option for LG nexus 4 device?

    • It should work. Try to consult LG Support if still not working for you.

    first press power button enter pass etc to open it. press power button for bout 3 sec brought the power off option on screen for me. press power off option.
    you phone will turn off. hold power button for like 5 sec and u will feel a vibration then let the power button go.
    you will see the google logo in bout 5 sec after that.
    i have a brand new phone no apps installed except face book so yours might take a bit longer.
