Picked up a g6 a few weeks after release. For a while now, I've been having problems where the the system freezes up while doing almost anything. It lasts only a few seconds but no controls work and button animations often get stuck in the middle of the animation until it finishes its episode. Seems to be aggravated if I am downloading something or using android auto, but it can happen during seemingly easy tasks like scrolling through pages in Chrome.
Other issues that may be related:
- storage manager loads infinitely unless I clear its data. This only works temporarily.
- I wasn't able to send texts in one instance unless I cleared the data for the messages app. Clearing just the cache didn't work.
- this may be my provider (Verizon), but the phone will sometimes not receive calls.
Steps I have taken to fix:
-safe mode didn't have noticeable effect. The freezing issue is hard to reproduce, happens every few minutes if I'm just using Chrome or something.
-clearing app data/cache of big apps and some system apps had no effect, except as described above.
-factory reset without app restore did not fix the issue.
Any ideas what could be wrong? Is this a hardware issue?

Hello, same account as above, had trouble accessing the forum account for some reason.
Anyhow, this profile has the IMEI. Please look into apps to see any issues.
I'll see about getting a video, but the lagging just seems to be the phone hanging up as if it's opening up a huge file.
