LG G3 Smart Bulletin

Want to disable the LG G3's Smart Bulletin feature? It's just a settings menu away!

Among the LG G3's many new features is Smart Bulletin, an extra home screen page located to the left of all your other home screens. You'll see it represented by a "G" in the scrolling bar of home screens.

By default it's split between the LG Health application and Smart Tips, which gives you hints about features of the phone you might not be using. If's a useful option to have, but fortunately if you find Smart Bulletin isn't for you, it's easy enough to turn off.

How to disable Smart Bulletin

You can easily turn off Smart Bulletin on the LG G3 through the Home Screen Settings menu. From your home screen —

  • Open the app drawer by pressing the icon with six dots in a circle.
  • Tap the three dots in the top right corner of the screen.
  • Select "Home screen settings."
  • In the menu that appears, toggle "Smart Bulletin" to the off position.

... Simple. Once you're done, the extra home screen panel will be gone. If you need to enable it again, simply toggle it back on from the Home Screen Settings menu.

Alternatively, you can change things up completely by using a custom home screen launcher on your LG G3.

How to get rid of the LG G3's extra 'G' home screen


Wait isn't that the top right corner of the screen? Just thought I would out it out there for those confused

I agree with rgao007. The whole mirror thing only applies to ppl or animals. I think Alex might've gotten it wrong cause he lives in Britain and there they get their lefts and rights mixed up. They do this when they drive, when they build car, and now Alex is doing it here.

Weird as in screen doors on submarines or ejection seats in helicopters?

I was gonna say the same thing! Why post any of this crap when none of us have the phone? Still no release date in US! Driving me nuts

I have to agree. I have been waiting to find out a release date for AT&T. I would be much more excited about that than anything right now.

Not really, some people may not have not wanted to buy the phone without knowing if this extra home screen can be turned off (removed) or not. I know I wouldn't want that extra screen on my phone.

This whole going left thing is very characteristic of Apple. I'm surprised even Google got on this band wagon. I myself don't like to open an app this way, cause really that's all it does. At least in Google Now's case, it bugs me a bit that it doesn't assume I could keep scrolling to the left once I got to it.

Can it be replaced by Google Now screen like Nexus 5? If not then LG should definitely add it in next release.

Why do it the hard way? You can just pinch the homescreen, and trash it :-) faster and more easy

Word on the street is that early July pre-orders will start for US Carriers for release in mid-July. Want this phone NOW.

People pay good price and buy phones for exclusive software and they use third party free launchers! Don't we know that we are paying huge price for software attached to the phone?

I'm okay with the extra screen. I know how to remove it but I want to keep half of it....I like having the calorie tracking thing but I don't want the smart tips..it's like always having an ad that only has pictures of white people you don't know and I can't remove that half of the screen.
