Agreed 100%. LG's support is worse than garbage, and this is coming from someone still using the V20 daily. They promised to deliver Android Pie before ending support for it last year and I have yet to receive it (some people have it even worse still being stuck on Nougat). Worse still, they are now locking down OTA updates by region, whilst refusing to launch phones in certain regions -- and then they wonder why their mobile division is failing globally, it's beyond stupid.

There's also a rumour going around that if their next "Velvet" phone flops, their entire mobile division will most likely be shut down for good. This is a decent deal -- but be prepared to take a huge gamble of being left in the dust as far as software updates go. I'd avoid it and any other LG phone for the time being at least.

Also still using my V20 and yeah it hasn't had an update in well over a year. I believe the Korean variant did get Pie but it's unlikely the rest of us will get it.

Why not do it yourself using Lineage OS? I upgraded my OnePlus One from Android 6 to 9 using Lineage; worked beautifully.

Because OnePlus supports AOSP projects like Lineage OS by providing source code for certain apps and things (as well as even giving away phones to certain devs) and LG doesn't. OnePlus understands the importance of good PR from communities like XDA devs and other open source projects and LG wants you to throw their old phones in the trash and force you to buy a new one. That means there is no Lineage OS support unless you create an Android build yourself or download someone else's unofficial build (which definitely is not a good idea if you value security). Even if you think that's OK, core functionality of LG phones gets broken the minute you flash one of these ROMs (like camera functions, hi-fi DAC support, second screen controls, VoLTE/VoWIFI support etc) -- meaning you get a less-than-useless brick of a phone in the process. This was the main reason why I dumped LG for OnePlus -- I can live with LG abandoning support for their phones, but not if they're actively fighting the AOSP community by close-sourcing everything.

I had the G4 back in the day, and had the infamous bootloop issue. This was traced to a hardware fault (soldering issue at factory) but LG never compensated their EU customers. In the US, they had do due to a class action suit. Decided never to buy one of their phones after that debacle.
Still this is an interesting device, I'm sure some will find the dual screen useful.
