  • AMe: a wearable lifelogging camera that produces 360-degree VR videos

Dear LG: Reinstalling the software on your Android phones shouldn't be this way

67

If you buy it, you should also be given the tools to fix it.

I just had to manually flash a KDZ file to my T-Mobile LG V10. Now I'm ready to turn it off and never touch it again, and it's all because of the silly method required to "fix" it when you need to fix it yourself.

I like the V10. I wish LG would take my privacy and security a little more seriously and send out security patches regularly (I mean, come on, even BlackBerry can do that), and the LG software makes me want to pull my hair out sometimes, but I like the way it's built, I love the camera it has and the HiFi audio hardware inside of it is really nice. I carry it with me as my point-and-shoot connected camera and music player.

Anyhoo, since I'm the only person here who uses the V10 regularly, I needed to write some words comparing it to the Galaxy S7 edge — people love those, and comparing the best of the best from LG and Samsung is something I've been looking forward to doing. But I didn't want to write anything without the Marshmallow update (that took entirely too long to arrive, but that's a whole 'nother story) and something on my unit was fouling that up. The OTA wouldn't run successfully, and LG Bridge couldn't verify the software version.

I understand that this can happen, though I also think that maybe someone sent me a special "one-off" version of the software with this particular phone — my "HiFi DAC" setting has always worked with every application, for example. In any case, after some troubleshooting with T-Mobile I was finally referred to LG. Rather than send my V10 somewhere and wait, I knew I could fix it myself. That's where things turned from being a bad experience to a complete headache.
