V20 is not included in the list to get guarantees Android 8.1 for G6 and V30 by James Wagner, therefore, I doubt getting Android Oreo for the v20. Nougat is the end of the line.
I've received update for my LG V20 H990DS today. I don't know what was that, but maybe it was security patch (more than 600 MB). does anybody know about this update?
LG isn't updating it. To be honest, made me lose more faith with the brand. I had the lg g3-g4 with bootloop. Still got the v20, but they're not even updating their flagship anymore.
The analogy between a multipurpose pocket knife and the V20 has been established several times in this forum.
It differs, substantially, that each of the pieces of the knife is for emergency situations, while each of the functions and characteristics of the V20 have the intrinsic quality of "specialised tool".

Phone is very solid both psychically and software wise. Clearing cache with built in cleaner does crash some apps on first launch but usually isn't much of an issue. Cameras are both very great, 16mp main taking some phenomenal images out in the day while the 8mp wide lacks the wider aperture but still takes a great image if the scene has a good amount of light. Manual mode on both video and for pictures does exactly what you'd expect. Very handy for when auto mode doesn't give you what you want. Night shots are good but it's much better to use a sort of tripod if possible. Instagram seems to be the only misbehaving app I've used with crashes few and far between. Getting a battery case is highly advised as the back of the phone is removable. Battery cases are such a life saver and they help add weight when trying to steady yourself to take pictures/video. Again, very solid phone and would highly recommend it as the prices have dropped significantly!

Anonymous, 23 Feb 2018V30 is worse, because that doesn't have removable battery.While the v30's battery isn't "hot swappable", there are youtube videos of users demonstrating how to open up the back of the phone and replace the battery.
My last two phones were both LG with removable batteries and I never bought or replaced the battery for them throughout the time I was using them. Now I'm using a phone with a larger, sealed in battery and if after two years if I need to take it to a shop and pay them $50 to replace the battery I'm actually quite ok with that. Funny people spend hundreds to replace a cracked screen but freak out at the idea of paying $50 to replace a battery. Apple's only charging $29 now to replace batteries in iPhones with is super reasonable and I have a feeling other manufacturers are going to start following suit, so much for "planned obsolescence".
I'm all for removable batteries, but battery life off one charge is still more important. Everyone has their needs and uses but for me I'd rather have a phone with a larger sealed in battery than a phone with a smaller removable battery. When the phone is also a unibody sealed design it also makes incorporating waterproofing and wireless charging a lot easier, too. I also don't like how when you have removable batteries it generally leads to markets being flooded with fake batteries which was so frustrating with my S3 it was impossible to find a legit battery for it in the developing country I was working in at the time.

LG mobile regretted to distance itself from the policy of programmed obsolescence with the V20, correcting with the V30.
AnonD-739080, 20 Feb 2018Someone's selling it around 17k on ebay India without b and o..Will it be ok to buy it?it depends. LG have announced 2 version of v20 through global. One is B&O and the other is LG tuned. For audio quality, both version performed nicely and close to each other. Maybe you just wont get the B&O headset out of the box. otherwise all same
Anonymous, 15 Feb 2018really interested with this device..is it still worth to buy in 2018? what is most common issu... moreTotally, I highly recommend it, but if you have the budget for it go for the V30 you'll have the water/dust proof feature
AnonD-739080, 20 Feb 2018Someone's selling it around 17k on ebay India without b and o..Will it be ok to buy it?The LG V20 on ebay are without Manufacturer warranty, and some old device also, if you satisfied with this then OK
