I thought it was simply camera improvements and a security patch because this is all that was said (though the 812MB size seemed a little big for a patch):

Android OS Upgrade
Camera funcionality has been improved.
Usability improvements through Google patch.

Update size: 812.2 MB

Folks, we have Pie . Downloaded in Toronto on Bell.

Interesting fact: the screen buttons showed the Pixel "pill" as the phone finished booting, then it reverted to the traditional 3-button layout. Not sure yet if it can be changed to the pill in settings.

This means that the G7 One is the first LG device to update to Pie.

Quite exciting, I must say.

How is the experience? What has changed?

The phone feels a bit snappier, yet the geekbench score is a little lower. They might have tweaked the frame rate a bit in 9.0 to make things smoother. The search bar is now at the bottom like the Pixel, which I like. You are given the choice of using the Pixel's gesture navigation or the traditional 3-button layout. I'm sticking with traditional, as I find the gesture option less efficient. Battery life seems a bit better but it is too soon to tell. Stock Android is a bit more colourful now in the settings icons and pull down menu. Overall I like it.

Hi guys,

Be advised to remove your current microsd card before upgrading...

A few days ago, I installed the update to Android Pie on my brand new phone on Bell carrier (Canada).
Forgot to remove my microsd card and after the update ; it told me "corrupted sd card".

I had to put it on my computer to backup all the stuff.
Then I reinserted the card in my G7 One and reformatted it.
Then finally, I connected my phone to my pc and retransferred the data.

I had a similar experience on my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge when trying to flash an Oreo rom over Nougat already installed and microsd card inserted.

My situation was similar to this post (I think they call that a "software lock") :
Can't post the url, but google "microsd corrupted after android upgrade", 1st result.

Removing card might help. But the problem is Android creates some folders and files within SD card which signifies which apps can access SD etc. So if you face the issue - just remove these android service dirs/files - something like Android, data, obb etc. Be careful not to remove your pictures/videos in DCIM folder. Use PC for SD card management.
Full reformat will work too, but it is a little extreme
