LG's latest UX UI are better than any android ui except One UI (Both are very much close together in looks and functionalities but One UI has more features). LG's problem is not getting timely updates not with UI which has almost no bloatware (expect uninstallable facebook and insta) as like Chinese UI's.

Thank goodness.. I mistakenly purchased their LG G8X because of the insane discount. Sold it within few months. Don’t get me wrong.. they make great hardware.. great build.. camera.. style and innovative design. But their software is the worst I have ever seen in my whole life. Even cheap Chinese phones under 100 usd have better software. Random restarts.. slow downs.. jittery 4g.. optimisation issues.. heating up and consequent battery drain.

What. Why that is crazy. I love my Lg phones they are strong and to be quiet honest it's the only phone i have use all else have stop working so i stick with lg phones now for years. I don't use Samsung and i don't like iphone. This cannot be the last time lg make phones this needs to be reconsidered. Am not happy to hear this at all

My phone will get android 12
Woohooo!

I'll miss LG

JohnNy L, 31 May 2021Good decison LG!! By the way LG makes great TV!!Sadly not with android though. I prefer android tv, simply because it can use good vpn apps.

The last paragraph there is sad new for employees, especially long term ones. If I was one of them, it would have been a nice gesture as a 'Thank You' from the company.

In a few years they will come back! :D
