    Nice. Wonder what it will entail as far as any changes.

    That's a pretty decent list of features.

    Most of that I couldn't care less about. What I want to know is what useful features they removed.

    You don't have to update.

    I've had multiple phones on Verizon that ignore you and will self update anyway. After dismissing the update several times, one morning you'll wake up to a freshly updated and rebooted phone.

    The update needs WiFi to download. Stay away from WiFi to avoid the eventual automatic update.

    Also not true, at least in my experience. My phones usually download the update over mobile data while I'm at work and have no Wi-Fi. Though, I seem to remember reading that this sort of "forced data use" isn't counted against your plan with Verizon.

    Edit: I also have a tiered plan, so I kind of need my Wi-Fi access when at home, so keeping that off wouldn't work for me either way.

    None of my phones on Verizon require WIFI to update.

    I think you should update for the battery life improvements alone but ultimately it's your choice.

    My battery is already about shot, so doubt I'd notice. Plus I'm never without a charger around.

    I guess I'm a combination of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," and a victim of Verizon fixing things until they are broken. I've been jaded on OS updates due to a lot of bad experiences over the years.

    Well I can't think of anything broken or lost in Oreo. Pie had some changes that some had objections with.

    There is one thing that annoys me the most whenever I receive an operating system update. I lose all my chrome desktop shortcuts and need to start over again. Why can't they copy them over. Just needed to vent.

    Are you referring to your phone?

    Yes, I save a lot of search results to my home screen and now they are all gone. I guess I should bookmark them but saving them to my home screen makes them eazier to open. Oh well lifes too short to worry about it.

    Yeah I agree, you should probably wait a bit longer.. maybe test out someone else's V20 with Oreo on Verizon and see if you like it. Once it's done, it's done.

    Just disable the Verizon app and software update app. If you can't, just use the LG Package Disabler Pro app.

    Yeah, I'd like to know too. Usually carriers are very sketchy about these things. AT&T has a habit of doing that and try to find ways for you to go over your data (such as deleting the data on/off toggle). Possibly the bloatware apps have been updated too to monitor your usage.

    Anyone know how to delete the pending update package? On past phones, I could clear the system cache, which would delete the downloaded update package as well. I just tried that now, and it's still in my notification bar. Haunting me. I did find the two "System Updates" apps in the app manager and deleted the cache on those. That removed the notification, but it wasn't much storage being used and I'm sure the installer package itself is still on my phone.

    If I can't get it deleted, I'm pretty sure my days are numbered until it updates itself without my permission.

    I am no expert on this matter. It kinda sucks that someone like us can't control what updates the phone will eventually download without your permission. Pulling out the battery when you sleep will delay the download a little longer. At least you can wake up with no surprise in the mornings until someone can figure out how to stop it. 😱

    I use my phone as an alarm clock, though. At least where I work now, I don't have firm starting times and oversleeping generally isn't an issue if it happens.
