AT&T's LG Phoenix 2 has received Android 7.0 Nougat

Considering many high-end phones never get major Android updates, it's always nice to see budget phones continue to be supported. This time around, AT&T's sub-$100 LG Phoenix 2 phone is getting Android 7.0 Nougat.

Verizon LG Stylo 2 V gets Android Nougat 7.0 update

Over the last year or so, OTA updates to the T-Mobile and Verizon versions of devices in the US have been happening almost at the same time or at least within a very short time period of each other. This is the case with the LG Stylo 2. The T-Mobile variant got the update two days ago (after a false alarm back in February) and now the Verizon one is following suite.

This variant is actually called the Stylo 2 V, because Verizon likes to slap letters to the names of phones when it can, and it's a midranger by all standards. But all phones deserve Nougat equally and this new VS83520b build number is delivering it to the Stylo 2 V.

Unlocked LG G5 in the US (RS988) gets Android 7.0 Nougat OTA

OTA updates are amazingly unpredictable. Sometimes, the US versions of devices get them first and international variants have to wait weeks and months, other times it's just the opposite. The latter is the case of the LG G5. My fiancé's unlocked model got the OTA around last December in Lebanon, but apparently the US unlocked version has been lingering on Marshmallow until now. That's a 6-month delay — whoa.

Well, the OTA is finally (never has this adverb been so rightfully used) rolling out to that variant of the G5, which is lovingly called the RS988. It weighs over 1300MB and when it installs, it pushes your device up to software version RS98821a, Android 7.0, with the April security updates.

LG is reportedly planning to release its first OLED smartphone in Q3 this year

LG has been one of the manufacturers who has stuck with LCD panels on its smartphones. While they look great, they still can't hold a candle to what Samsung puts in its Galaxy S and Note phones. Likely hoping to change that, the smaller Korean OEM (in terms of smartphone market share) is planning to ship its first smartphone with an OLED display in Q3 this year.

Verizon axes LG Watch Sport, offers $100 credit for other watches to pre-orderers

When the LG Watch Sport was announced, Verizon was on the list of carriers that would sell it. However, it's been three months since then, and Verizon still hasn't made it available for sale, with nothing being shipped to pre-orderers. It turns out that the chunky device has been completely canceled for Big Red.

LG has pulled the T-Mobile G6 'Buy one, get one' promotion

T-Mobile first started a 'BOGO' (Buy One, Get One) promotion for the Galaxy S8 a few days ago, which allowed customers to buy two Galaxy S8s and get a rebate for the value of the second phone up to $750. The company quickly launched the same promotion for the LG G6, but that seems to already be over.

[Deal Alert] T-Mobile and LG running 'buy one, get one' promo for LG G6

T-Mobile is making a big deal out of its new buy one, get one (BOGO) promo on the Galaxy S8, but you can get a similar deal on LG's latest flagship. Buy a G6 and LG will cover the cost of a second one (eventually). LG appears to be taking the lead on fulfillment, so there are not as many annoying catches, like with the GS8 deal. You still have to jump through some hoops, though.
