Freelancer, 15 Sep 2021So for V50, we should not upgrade to Android 11?Still think that android9 is the snappiest one for LG.
Got my V35 and G8 in android9,
in other hand V50 and V50s in android10.
No regret for using android9.
Having vertical recent task page and faster camera interfact, best of the best.
Android10 lose all these advantage.

Updating android version is the worst thing to think about ever. More RAM consumption, worse battery life, losing vertical recent task page, and I can count it all day.

Just need to know that Korean variant must have shutter sound and there is no buttom to turn it off. This is the biggest different.
You can install some apps for free and do not need root, to mute the shutter sound, up to android 10. You cannot do this in android11 anymore.
So if you concern about this, go for global variant.

It is lighter and smaller than V60
It has no camera bump
It is about 40% cheaper in my location

I'm not really concerned not able to upgrade to Android 12. I'm using V10 on Android 7 and I don't know what I'm mising anyway lol

Freelancer, 12 Sep 2021Is it better to get the Global version, rather than Korean,... moreIts a matter of taste, korean variants will always come with the same bloatware so you are not getting anything that didnt come on other korean variants from LG.
At this point it would be better to look at the V60 rather than this since this phone next year will be 3 years old with no date to move up to android 12 in sight since we are barely getting 11 just now. I wouldnt get my hopes up the v50 will get android 12.

Is it better to get the Global version, rather than Korean, if available?

driqbd, 10 Sep 2021If it's the Korean version, it's due to bloatware... moreWell obviously this is not what I am talking about. I have gone through LG UI from android6 to android10 and scrolling always fluid as what it meant to be.
However android11 is significantly lowered the scrolling speed by a rate or 0.5X, just be eyeballing.
You can try youself if you got 2 LG devices at once. One at amdroid10 and the other at 11. Compare them side by side and you will know that android11 scroll sooooooo slow.
I have tried this twice on V50s. Upgrade and downgrade and update and downgrade, I have gone through the process upgrading to android11 twice and same result obtained. That is
android11 is noticeably slow.

But thanks for your information. It is new to me.

Scrolling through webpages or setting menu suddently becomes ultimately slow and awkward?
