Anyone have an idea of when the LG G6 is going to get the Oreo update?
The OS was released in August of 2017, it's almost February and I'm curious to see what's going on.
once i got used to it i actually like the LG line..minus the wait on updates etc..but i have a feeling that new system deal they are doing is to help fix this..you know..if and when they actually get it fully up and going lol.
shoot..forgot to search it out again lol
software update center...thats what it was called.
at this point being optimistic is all you can do lol. im by far not new to the whole waiting game when it comes to android devices..but if they are creating something to help speed up kicking out updates then they probably know they have some issues and are a bit lacking in that area lol...or at least we can hope they know.
FWIW, I chatted with Sprint this morning. Here is part of the transcript.
Heart R. : Can you please provide a little more clarification on your question or concern?
You : Now that Verizon has released Oreo to the LG G6, I was wondering if Sprint now had a time frame when this will happen for us
Heart R. : Thanks for sharing. I'll be glad to check that one for you, J!
Heart R. : Thank you for your patience, I will have the information shortly.
You : no worries mate
Heart R. : Thank you for waiting.
Heart R. : I have a great news for you, J!
You : i like great news!
Heart R. : I have confirmed here that the Oreo update is already available to all Sprint Customers!
You : Well thats good. I could not find anything online about it. How do I get it?
Heart R. : Nothing to worry, we regard to this application or feature on your phone, we have a dedicated Technical team that will do the work for you. All you have to do is to contact them to have further assist you in setting up this Oreo update and will provide more information with regard to this.
Heart R. : Please call 1-888-211-4727 and select the technical team option. Be sure to call from another phone to enable testing.
You : That's strange. It should just be an OTA update. No worries. I will call them. Thanks for the info
That's just the general support number afaik.
The update isn't out yet, LG seems to release updates on Monday's/Friday's so we'll just have to wait.
correct. keep in mind that even though its Oreo it does not contain the same things. each carrier has their own add ins the manufacturers must put in there..and thats where the delays come in..if they add the carriers stuff in and for example they run into issues with Sprints add ins then they must figure out why and figure out a fix..if the add ins go smoothly and the testing comes back good then that carrier gets to release the update quicker than the others that ran into issues.
^^ this here is why you see delays..heck there are times large OS updates get pushed out by Sprint before the others..just depends on whos goes the smoothest lol.
