    Yes, the LG G5 will be getting security updates. However, the frequency updates are pushed will depend on LG and the carrier. What carrier are you going to be using the G5 with?

    I will be using it with AT&T. I am looking at the RS988, it is not an ATT phone. At least I don't think it is!

    I got rid of the G5 due to lack of security updates. I had the Tmobile version and it was still on the March update. I called LG and they said Tmobile does the security updates. I called Tmobile a couple of weeks ago. I was told by a tech that they don't write the code, they just test it and push it out. They hadn't received any update from LG and none was scheduled.

    It's receiving updates but slow. My patch level shows April 2016, so no May or June patches yet.

    Im on At&t

    I've had both the March and April security updates since i've had the phone (In the UK though, where carriers don't bloat the phones), and I assume May is coming any day. So yes, it does get them, but obviously not as quickly as a Nexus phone would. The risks really are very small, remember security updates for Android are quite a new thing anyway.

    Well its now the end of june, and I have a sim-free G5 that is still running the '1st April' patch, so I'm going to say no, LG are are not living up the agreement.

    Samsung on the other hand seem to be doing nicely in this regard, I hear the S7 series has had pretty much every monthly patch since launch.

    I just received the June security update for my LG G5 H860 on AT&T. My G5 is the unlocked Dual Sim version with AT&T Sim card and the other slot used for SD card. Love the phone! No bloatware, works great, gets updates, takes excellent pics, great battery life, etc. etc. Did I mention that it's great?! LOL

    I have the unlocked US version and still on April update. Going back to an S7 bought on Swappa. Much better phone IMO. Unlocked phones should get updates quicker than this. Again, LG is second fiddle.

    My G5 (Europe H850 version) got software update today: v10d which includes Google's June 1st security patch.

    So, yes LG G5 receives security updates. As it should, being LG's 2016 flagship.

    Not all are. I am in Canada on the Bell network and have had this phone (H831) since launch....no updates at all so far. I don't think I'll be buying another LG device after this.

    Sorry to hear that buddy, I would NEVER touch another EE branded phone.. they are the slowest IP in the UK for updates.. My G5 is an unlocked Vodafone, which Ive unbranded (removed VOD bloat and splash with LGUP) but the OS version is locked onto VODA server, which is fine because VOD tend to release the updates on the same day as unbranded (before EE / 3 / O2),

    If EE fall to far behind, you could try trding youe EE G5 for a VODA G5

    Second that on EE. I am still on April, whereas a friend of mine, also with a G5 but on Vodafone, is on the June update.
