My last phone carried Android K till 2020 safely. Anyhow, I don't care so much about UI.

Since 2010 my phone is LG,even my tv LG also

Anonymous, 09 Apr 2021Still going with this battery thing? Come on people :rolley... morethe "my phone is slow after update" was going on since way before that.
apple only said they slowed down devices once they got caught on reddit lol.


for 5-6 years ( more or less) , they denied it for a reason.

one would have to be dumb to believe they did not do it for


my cellphone battery is not differnt than my laptop battery or PC battery. even worn, it should not slow down. they were throttling it for a reason and never mentioned it until they got caught.

as soon as they did and the lawsuits started, they put the option to use the phone as is.

most people, don buy phones every year. many will an old phones. there's a reason most of society is in debt.

fans like this bum actually believe apple got customer service as their priority lol. they cheat on taxes, they have terrible work conditons and only reasonwe all look the other way is because we probably have apple share in our portfolio.

Come on people :rolleyes: One of things that annoy me the most is spreading of clueless nonsense about an actual feature like it was intentional to push people to buy new phone. By making them fucntional with worn battery...

We haven't got android 11 update how can we expect 12 or 13 update m

wow, so annoyed I will most likely only be receiving one os update this year. that really grinds my gears.
thanks for the two weeks notice LG. :(

Arod, 08 Apr 2021u didn't read THREE OS UPDATES that means three year... moreThat's what we wish for, yes. It will probably get android 12, but not 13 and 14. Or whatever they will call them. Just wait and see.

I get LG never updated the OS but let's also not pretend the changes were groundbreaking.
We saw how Apple updated phones but slowed them down via the battery scam. Updating for the sake of updating by making the phones slow af is not really an update. fortunately for them. their fans think Apple thinks about consumers first and not the bottom line.


LG UI might not be the best either and design might not have been to everybody's liking but how long are we in the UI aspects of a phone? you're using apps probably 99.9% of the time and that doesn't change much whether it's the latest samsung with the latest OS or the a gen or two back. if you spend that much time on the UI ...YOU might be the problem lol

if we invested the savngs from buying LG phoens becase they dropped in value a lot, approx 300-400$ per year and invested in stock, over the last 10 years....that $4000 would be closer to 15k now if geeks were as smart as they prertend to be when it comes to tech stuff.

LG is still selling these models on amazon and other shopping apps. By making such statements LG is hoping to sell its remaining stock.

Kingslayer, 08 Apr 2021That's two more updates than my unlocked LG G5 ever go... moreYou shold have Oreo on your LG G5, but only android 8.0 not 8.1 😳
Maybe I will swap to Lineageos 18.1 when it is more stable.
