    Security Software updates are overrated
    Not to people who care about them. I say Quad DACs are overrated but I am sure you would disagree :P.

    If you concerned about security updates get a pixel or a blackberry. But I agree, they are over rated and even BlackBerry has missed a few.

    That's my opinion based on the fact that I've never had an issue with slow security updates causing me grief and I've been through some really slow updates. Someone else may have other experience and wants their updates right away, but I'm not going to lose sleep over it.

    I've course I would disagree with Quad DACs being regarded as overrated, however i have no issue with someone who does. That's a personnel choice. I have different appreciation for sound then the average person.
    Some people buy a smartphone for its camera, I don't...you might. Again, personal choice.

    And I agree .. But the thread is obviously about wanting the updates so to the OP and others .. it isn't overrated .

    Right.... And his first post the OP asked in the very first post if anyone was slightly concerned. My first response was not all.

    The reason I asked was we heard about a camera update released in Asia shortly after the release of the phone but I haven't seen an update regarding the camera yet. Then I realized we were still on Aprils security even though it's been quite a while since we got that update. LG stated in 2015 they would do monthly updates so we should have seen May by now.

    Since we haven't seen any updates in what seems like a really long time, are we going to be delayed substantially in getting at least 7.1.1 and possibly Android O.

    The security updates don't concern me that much but the lack of even those does.

    I can understand people worrying about security updates. I don't recall how many I've gotten since Verizon release but it wasn't that many. I'm sure we will get another one soon.

    I wouldn't have too much faith. I mean I hope LG proves me wrong .. But if we are going off a quote from 2015 and seeing how the updates are already slow .. well I think it is safe to say they aren't holding themselves to their work.

    Maybe there's no security issues to issue a patch for. 👍. A lot of paranoia and distress on something that to me is just a big who cares.

    If you read what I posted, it's not about the security patches.

    Im just kinda shocked that Samsung has gotten the May and June (Unlocked versions) out and we havent heard a word from LG. I thought we were supposed to see an update dedicated to the camera as well.
    I didn't they were updating the camera. Do you know what they were trying to fix in the camera?

    LG G6 Gets Better With Refreshed Update in Korea

    LG G6 OTA update rolling out in Korea with improved camera quality, better touch performance and more – The Android Soul

    This was released more than 2 months ago in Korea but we havent seen anything here. This is pretty much the reason for the thread. If we're staying 2 months behind on security updates (almost 3 months now), how long will it take to get the updates that actually improve the phone?

    Yeah, missing a single patch might be a "meh" thing to some people, but most companies are 2-3 months behind consistently on multiple devices. I don't actually understand why some people don't care about security, but that is one of the biggest deal breaker issues out there for me. If the company doesn't care about security, most other things that they're doing really don't matter much.
