      15. Re: Oreo update for the  LG V30?

      If it takes T-mo a few more days to deliver Oreo 8.1 instead of buggy 8.0 I'm fine with that lol  BUT I doubt it will be 8.1
      I seen someone saying it was going to be at the end of March so we aren't past that timeline yet... let's see!

        Sprint and Verizon both received 8.0 updates so even though LG said they were jumping to 8.1, I'd say it's a safe bet that that's what we'll get.

          8.1? We will get 8 late and like it ...Never again buying a phone that doesn't get timely updates. I see this as my fault I thought since this was a flagship and come out the same time from the same company as the Pixel 2 phones it would get 8.0 right away. Boy was I wrong.

           

          You read it here. We will not get 8.1 instead of 8.0.  You must be joking?

            You got to think that LG is not as popular as Apple and Samsung, and not in same spot as updates either. Samsung is really slow on updates to newer OS.

              But all of the S8 models in the US now have 8.0, they working on updating the S7 now. LG left us behind.

                There is a rumor that Deutsche Telecom, T-Mobile's parent company is going to start selling all of their phones with Vanilla Android (Pure Android without bloatware). They are tired of getting the blame for slow software updates because of the carrier specific applications. Let's hope that T-Mobile follows suit! It could be another game changer for T-Mobile! That could be another uncarrier. Could you imagine how many people would switch to T-Mobile if they could get a handset without all the bloat? Software updates would be easier. It would be like an unlocked phone, almost no wait.

                  No...  They are going to sell them without carrier apps not pure android.

                    So S7 and S8 models have it.  Verizon LG v30s and Sprint LG V30s have it.  A little disappointed here that Tmobile either doesn't care enough or have the resources to warrant more attention for their LG Flagships.

                     

                    Given what I see - it unfortunately appears that they just don't care enough.  It's not even in testing yet.

                      There is no such thing as "Pure Android" anymore. Regardless if Goggle makes Android, the Pixel uses a skin created by google that goes on top of android. So you might want to change what you say to "Pure Google".

                        Not quite right as saying there is no such thing as pure Android. You can get pure Android right here Android Open Source Project 

                         

                        Google Experience would be the actual coined term by Google.

                         

                        What they talked about was not having preinstalled apps on devices like what you would find in the T-Mobile folder on devices sold by T-Mobile USA for example, and not what the guy thinks it is.

                          I am getting back and forth from T-mobile and LG both saying they waiting on each other. I would just be happy with timely month Android security patches. We put soo much on these devices personal and business it would be nice if they where patched. If a patch breaks an APP who cares, I would rather be secure and have the app break because its not secure then to keep using a unsecure app. Give us the option at least.

                            Have to concur that what we need is a very specific roadmap for all Android updates for all T-Mobile Android phones. I have one too many excellent phones that are not getting what I think are the appropriate security and/or OS updates (T-Mobile Android phones and unlocked Android phones with an over a decade old T-Mobile account).

                             

                            The carriers need to work better with the manufacturers and the manufacturers need to work better with the carriers and they both need to work better with the the Android (Google) developers and the FCC and others. Testing matters and is paramount. Security more so. Good people need to be hired and retained and paid well. What a mess we have now!

                             

                            Then they try to keep one from being able to install a new battery so you have to buy a new phone. Reminds me of the the manufacturers that try to build obsolescence into their products - they may make money in the short term, but their long term prospects are not so good. They chose poorly.

                             

                            But I digress,

                              Well it has been 20 days since the first post here and nothing has changed as far as the status of the V30 update. I was being optimistic and hopeful about a update soon whenever this thread was started. It has been what 5-6 months since Oreo was released. Now I am beginning to think that either LG or T-Mobile are in a hurry to update our software to Oreo. I mean I guess Samsung is the biggest seller so it takes priority and LG doesn't care, they just want to sell more handsets, thus don't care if they update software. The new handsets are already updated. Little do they know is that this strategy will hurt them in the long run with existing customers. I hate Samsung because of the bloatware and TouchWiz. Now I am beginning to hate LG, because they keep making bad business decisions. No wonder Samsung doesn't consider them competition anymore.

                                Now I remember why I'd root and flash ROMs.

                                This is my first TMobile daily driver since the Nexus 4 and I thought things got better between manufacturers and carriers in terms of updates. Apparently that is not the case. As much as I like the V30 hardware, it's frustrating waiting on the updates. Makes me wish for the GPE devices again. Not a huge fan of the Pixels, but they've maintained update support like the Nexus.

                                 

                                Sadly, if we want timely updates or even accurate timelines, a Google device is the way to go. For what it's worth, that admission bothers me as it puts users like myself into the same camp as iPhone users.

                                  I'm curious to know myself, think verizon has rolled their out already, so would think t-mobile shouldn't be too far behind.  But if they're pulling the stunt like they did with the V20 it could be awhile, they tinkered with the V20 Bootloader, curious to know if they did it with the V30 as well.
