I switch from S9+ to G7 ThinQ unlocked. This lack of updating their OS is beyond acceptable. I will never I mean never by another LG phone. I am mad and damn sick and tired of their lack of support. What a piece of crap company.
I have yet to learn despite having owned several LG phones the past 10 years that didnt even get even 1 update or have to wait forever to get a update. This is why LG phones cannot command premium pricing. And their value dropped like a bomb after buying it. The most unfortunate part is LG seem to be doing everything to increase sales yet they have no clue why their phone cannot sell!
I can only conclude not so bright people work at LG. Consumers demand good service and if they cannot get, they go elsewhere.
It is time for me to move on despite having a G7. I just got a S10+
It is 2nd of may and my unlocked g7 thinq still hasn't received pie. Went from samsung to lg, never thought it will be worst with updates
LG is worst with software updates, got V30+ and still stuck with 8.0 while other brands already releasing Android Pie even on low end phones.
Grats released in summer of 2017 i mean phone and they get Pie when Nokia will start giving android Q to their devices.
This LG jokes all the way.
LG is the worst company when updates are a concern.
Still April LG ThinQ has not got Android Pie update except Korea.
I guess people should avoid buying LG Phones in Rest of the world except Korea.
They had even promised Android Pie update by Q1 2019.
Which they failed to meet.
LG is a company which even fail to meet public promises also.
Anonymous, 07 Apr 2019Lol, Samsung is not much better. Nokia/OnePlus/Huawei/Sony are faster at updating than SamsungComparing with LG, Samsung is much better IMO. As least my old S8 get Pie update recently. Not as fast as other brands like many other brands though.
Melissakis, 07 Apr 2019Comparing a matter of life and death to a piece of hardware is irresponsible, to say the least.Quite like dismissing the importance of updates, eh.

LG is the worst company when it comes to updates. By June Android Q will be the latest..
Anonymous, 06 Apr 2019LG's software update promises are a big fat lie. They update the Korean variants and US varian... moreStrange. My v30 got oreo update already, January security patch and it's an EU non-carrier unit.
If I needed a Pie, I'd just go to XDA and get one, plenty to choose from.
Don't Trust LG in terms of software update, it's Always promises for android update but years past the date we pomise is not true :-( better GO Samsung, Xioami, Huawei for better and tue update.
Okay , the g7 has been updated to android pie? Not in my world.. The experience may be better than samsung but the updates are surely gonna drive me away to samsung. v20 gave me a similar experience . probably the last lg ill own.
I am using G7 ThinQ in Bangladesh and still waiting for Pie update... :(
time to go out of business! Your phone price is crazy! and software updates don't exist!

If you owned a LG phone, you would better root it and flash the newer roms. Their hardware quality is not bad (except for some of their LED displays), and their phones have good potential to be flashed with much newer roms to archive better performance. For anyone who do not want to root their phones, it will be much better to try other brands with better software updates. Google and Samsung phones can be a good try.
amasog, 06 Apr 2019Hu! LG still making phones? I thought they are now just focused on AC and Washing Machines.... moreG4 is so old. Get a new phone. You should know Planned Obsolescence by now that users get a new phone for every two years.
