            Thanks, that's what I thought it was.

              It should also be mentioned that there has been absolutely no indication that this phone will progress past 7.0. Since the phone has been out since May I believe there has been nothing but security updates short of 1 update (bundled with security update) where the screen auto brightness was adjusted I believe.

               

              I do remember the Stylo 2 getting an update from 6.0 to 7.0 however I'm doubtful that this Stylo 3 will progress to 8.0. however I suppose anything is possible.

               

              It would be nice if when a phone is to no longer be updated to the next full integer that it would at least get the incremental updates that stopped just short of a full integer update. (7.x.x)

                  I bought this phone because when my Nexus 5X updated to Oreo it started over heating, shutting down for days

                  and random rebooting. I needed a reliable phone and didn't want to shell out big bucks for a phone that would be obsolete

                  in a few months  when Tmobile starts rolling out their new bands.

                      I bought it because my ZTE was a really terrible phone. TMobile was nice enough to credit me the cost of the Zmax Pro when I showed proof of purchasing this Stylo 3 +. It was the closest in price. But tons better.

                          Me 2. I went from G Stylo to Zmax Pro back to G, skipped 2, and now 3. Woulda took Revvl+ if it had NFC.

                          2 things I don't like:

                          A. Micro socket & its pins are too delicate, since original Stylo.

                          B. LG starting to lock down and disable too much stuff.

                           

                          This only a holdover until / if latest flagships from oneplus, xiaomi, Huawei iron out bugs & put out stable Oreo update.

                          The larger HTC u11 woulda been perfect if released here.

                        Re: LG Stylo 3 Plus

                        Yes. At least to 7.1.1 would be nice.

                         

                        And I'm also not too happy with LG uptrend of locking down and removing stuff from stock OS.

                      The next phone you get to use on Tmobile you will want to make sure it has bands 66 & 71.

                       

                      T-Mobile will be rolling out those bands next year.
