LG V10 Android update: latest news

Update: LG V10 to receive Android Nougat Update in Q2 2017

When we reviewed the LG V10, we found it to be an extremely powerful, if pricey, LG flagship. Since Android 6.X Marshmallow rolled out for the device in mid 2016 - many have wondered if and when the device will ever receive the Android 7.0 Nougat Update. 

Now it seems like LG has made a decision as news have leaked that the LG V10 is prepped to to receive an Android 7.0 Update at some point this year.

Android 5.1.1 Android 6.0 Android 7.0
LG V10 No Yes Yes, Q2 2017

It seems like LG hasn't given up on its older flagships and has decided that both the LG G4 and the LG V10 will be receiving the Android 7.0 Nougat update. The Korean news agency Yonhap recently reported on a statement from LG that initially neither of the devices would receive the update as they were not optimized for Android Nougat, but out of "respect for consumers' rights to choose", it is reversing its earlier decision. 

The LG V10 is set to receive the Android Nougat update at some point in Q2 2017, while the LG G4 will receive the Nougat update in Q3 2017. The catch here is that these updates are planned for the Korean market, so it will most likely take more than a few weeks before they reach the US.  

LG has made an interesting choice pushing out the updates in Q2 and Q3 - as one would normally expect Google to be pushing out the newest Android O version at some point in Q3 2017. Taking into account the delays before the update reaches the US, our best bet would be that certain devices will receive Android O before either of these two devices will get Android Nougat. 

When do you think you'll receive the nougat update? Is there any hope that either of these devices will receive any updates in the future?

    I've had marshmallow since the end of April and my phone is working great I haven't had any issues at all

  • AT&T customer here.. I used to love my phone, now I want to throw it against a brick wall.. This update screwed up everything.. 8 out 10 times I cannot get a call out, the camera has gone to hell, only sends messages when it feels like it, apps freeze up regularly.. The list goes on and on.. I didn't want the update but it did it on its own, while I was asleep. I wish I could go back to lollipop

    Is there any news about the god awful camera quality after update? Are they working on fixing it?

  • I have the lg v10 I ugraded and I REGRET IT. The camera sucks, even on Snapchat. Before I loved the camera and the way it looked on my Snapchat and phone camera. Also now I cannot post video snaps to my Snapchat story.

  • still no marshmallow on my phone why

  • Ok my kid got marshmallow on her phone for LG V10 and I didn't get mine why can you answer that one.

    I've been holding out from updating to MM, because I believe in the saying "if it ain't broken, then don't fix it ". Anywho, I finally did after reading all the reviews and complaints. I decided to try my luck. The end result is that I REGRET IT. My V10 was working just fine before, now, it's broke lol.

    Cons:
    1)My LGV10 frozed twice in less than 2 days. The second time, I had to pull my battery out to resuscitate it.
    2)My WiFi is also unreliable
    3)My battery life is very bad (I was very happy with the battery life before the update. I don't see what all the hoopla about the need for MM to improve this. I only made it bad).
    4)phone is often over heating and hot

    Pros:
    1)None. I haven't benefited or found anything better since this update.
    2) oh, and the so called WiFi calling is a useless joke. It's only useful "IF" you are in an area with poor Verizon service **AND** have access to WiFi --- that's it folks, no hard-ons there. No international calling or texting...what's the eff-ing use?. Needless to say, I turned that nonsense off to help save on power drain.

    Summary:
    I know we all like to get excited about new updates and stuff. And even when the new stuff has issues we're willing to turn a blind I and remain in denial--until we're left with a factory reset option :-(. But honestly, this is an unnecessary update that brought, for me, more issues than good. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Well, now it's broke. I don't recommend this update and I hope Verizon fix this and some of the other issue people are having with the recent MM update.

  • Before the update the front camera had much higher image quality than it does now that I have updated. At first I thought it was just a problem with Snapchat but even the regular camera app looks horrendous.
