    So most likely LG will upgrade the V20. Usually, a flagship gets at least one major OS upgrade.. this is my first LG flagship phone so I don't know how they were in the past with OS updates. What do you think? Are you going to update your V20 to Oreo.. or do you think it's fine as it is and that it's unnecessary? There's still no mention if the V20 and G5 will get the AI camera update.. I'm guessing most likely not because they still want to push for the G6 and V30 sales.

    T-Mobile has announced that the V20 will get Oreo. I'll take the upgrade when it comes -- I see no material reason not to.

    This post doesn't mention the carriers.
    I wonder if the update will have to go through the laborious Verizon check before they release or if it can go direct to user.
    I'm afraid there could be glitches if it is installed without passing through Verizon. Big Red adds all kinds of stuff and strips some things off so who knows what is compatible.

    If it's a Verizon branded one, it'll go through their process.

    Personally, I'd be just fine not getting it.

    Yeah, if you have a carrier version, wait and see what other people say about it. I remember updating my AT&T Galaxy S4 and they took away features, which annoyed the heck out of me.. they took away the data on/off toggle shortcut on the drop-down notification bar. I believe AT&T still does not allow that shortcut. Verizon is known for bloat-ware, probably the most bloat-ware.. they will probably add new bloat. You can probably still use ADB commands to remove them.

    Same here.. my fear is extra useless apps and features getting installed.. and or unexpected battery drain.. we'll see.

    My AT&T V20 has the data on/off toggle shortcut on the drop-down notification bar. Who knows, they may take it away with Oreo.

    With the number of start / stop / pulled Oreo OTA's on Tmo, this may be a blessing in disguise!
