As the title states, the DJI GO 4 app just stops working all of a sudden for no reason that I know of.  My phone is a Samsung S6; batteries were charged plenty.  About the only thing I can think of is that the little cable from controller to phone is not the greatest and may wiggle and cause it to stop resoponding.  I have not had an issue with loosing control of the Mavic, and I was able to simply start the DJI GO 4 app again and it worked fine.  But it did stop twice today in one flight.  I think one time was because my stupid Samsung did a software update early this morning and everything looks different now.  I hate it when they keep updating the app.  Now the fonts are tiny and hard to see.  I think my phone interupted my flight to tell me about the new features of the android software operating system.  I don't think I'll like it when a phone call comes in either.  If I put the phone in airplane mode, then I can't capture video and photos to my phone.  I may have to just not use that feature.

Anyway, do you guys agree that the little cable might be the problem?  Or is the app a little unreliable?

Jeep Daddy, it's not the cable. I flew my mavic for a solid two months with my Samsung S7 and didn't have a single problem. Flew batteries to 25% over 15 minutes of flight time and the app and phone were rock solid. Samsung pushed an update to the phone and now I get about 5 minutes before the go4 app closes and I have to restart in flight. I am afraid to fly because the app is so unstable with the phone. There are many posts about this in the forum and I wish an Administrator would direct us android users to a fix. I now have to fly with an iPad as it seems to operate normally. Sorry dude us android users are out in the cold

I had app crashes every flight until I downgraded to Android 6. So far I have had a couple of short flights and it appears to work fine now.

Ok, that's what I thought.  Androids suck with this app.  I am about to order an iPad.  I don't really like Apple products since I've always been a PC guy but if the iPad is more reliable then that's what I'll do.  I hope that using the WiFi only version with 32GB of ram is ok.  I will only use this iPad to surf the net, read Kindle, and fly my Mavic.  Nothing else.

Use the iphone 7S. Had the last days the same problem. After hundred flights I'll change the cable. Hope the best.
