    Felt my phone getting warm in my pocket, opened it up and saw it was downloading an update. I figured it was another security update, but when I tapped on the notification I see this:

    Verizon rolling out Oreo-screenshot_2018-05-21-11-32-07.jpg

    Yesterday, T-MO sent the April security update, so maybe T-MO is getting close to sending out Oreo also. Crossing all my phalanges!

    Our latest update was March and put us on the February patch, and now an upgrade.

    You would think unlocked phones would het them first. I have an Lg G6+ from Amazon Prime. Last update was April 1st and that was the December security patches. Still on Android 7.0.

    I noticed I lost the smart location smart lock option, added it in with all the other problems I've been having and figured Oreo would fix it. Checked for updates and BOOM downloading it now

    Well none of the issues I've had with Gmail are fixed and now apparently they've removed my notification sounds for each tab. Guess it wasn't a popular feature

    I read somewhere that smart location unlock was removed from play services because of some security risk. Hopefully it will return.

    Honestly, it wasn't that great. One room in my house would have an entirely different geographic point from another. I had several dozen locations saved for my home

    Very cool to wake up to the update.....but I only had like 26% battery left....and thought it was just a security update from Verizon........after letting it fly an hour later....... OREO 8.0

    Lots of UI tweaks.....and I am using nova launcher. I have not tried to use the stock home launcher......how does it seem to you all that use it?

    One big issue is that the LG Home launcher is still set for Nougat. As a result, I can no longer set custom icons. This reset all my icons to the default look and my only recourse is to install a custom launcher, which I'm afraid will likely have more issues than the one that came with my phone.

    Very frustrating for someone like myself that doesn't mess around with my phone and likes to keep it stock. A great stock feature, now missing.

    I spoke with LG's live chat support, they said I would hear back from devs within 48 hours. For some reason, I'm not hopeful... We'll see.

    EDIT:
    Little update... I contacted LG twitter support. They said they "don't know" if it will come in the next update. They said all I have to do is wait for the next update. Wow geniuses... So instead of working to make sure it's in an update, they just showed me away essentially telling me to do away with LG software.

    Play services updated again to include it

    Only used the phone with oreo now for less than 24 hours.....but so many improvements with lagg issues...(which were not that much actually).

    Lots of little UI changes and options.....so far my phone is performing much better all-round. Hope it continues...


    My bluetooth connections work much much better too! I have a few diff speakers...and had issues changing from one to another....now it hands off and connects fast.

    I like many of the notifications for apps in use...like audio source changing from speaker to phone instantly with toggle option in the notifications.

    I also noticed the charging notification shows correctly fast charging, slow charging and such like it is supposed to. Before....sometimes it would say slow charging or fast charging with the same fast charger. Little things like this I am noticing work like they should.

    Sounds great! I definitely know what you mean about being happy about noticing the little things working as they should. That must feel good!

    I got the update this afternoon. I haven't had that much time to look around but the one thing that's really annoying me is that I have a constant message that "Exchange is using battery, tap for details on battery and data usage". Tap it and it looks like it opens up an app that shows battery and data usage. Is this thing necessary? How do I stop the notification every time I wake the phone up?

    The other strange thing I noticed is that all of my buttons still click when touched except for the back button. It makes kind of like a thumping noise.

    Swipe down to open notifications, then swipe left on that android system battery notification....you will see a gear, press it and select the button to turn off all apps that use that notification.

    So besides not getting dots with Google home it appears that whatever my problems have been with Gmail aren't going away. I lose the in app notifications after I swipe an email away from the shade. I also don't get comment notifications from the YouTube creator app even though I have them turned on. Also the phone has crashed every day since the update. I have to force reset to get it working
