As we know, the AT&T V35 got Pie in June, but still nothing for the Unlocked model almost 2 months later. This is embarrassingly bad for LG and I'm curious what is causing the issue. Is LG so wrapped up in 5G development that they've left old devices in the dust? Also, I'd be curious if the AT&T Pie is a form of soak test, and perhaps needed bugs to be worked out before full rollout.

Unlocked is always last, because it has to work with all carriers not just AT&T. More testing has to be done.

Same happened with V30 and Oreo. Official Carrier Unlocked was last, after the carrier models.

I think they've had about a year to get it ready. This is plain and simple. LG is a sh!t company, with more desire for profit than good support for "old" devices. By old I mean 3-6 months or beyond. Just pump out a new phone every 6 months with a 1 year old version of Android and call it good.

Yup. Only about a year from their Q4 2018 plan. Screenshot_2019-08-04-22-50-37.jpgScreenshot_20190804-234842.jpg

Finally. Same via OTA yesterday. Subtle update with no noticeable changes.
Yeah, when my wife got it on her P2XL the volume panel went from Horizontal to Vertical. Mine is same old. No visial changes, but these annoying notifications that I set to Minimize, but they don't go away!

So "minimized" notifications from ifttt and Google translate don't minimize. Pie verticle Volume is still horizontal in LG. I tell ya I don't notice a difference at all. I'm using the pixel launcher and a very stock android type of lame LG theme, but my phone seems the same only with the notification bugs.

The only visible changes I can see so far are the new gesture navigation system, the new recent apps menu, and the added choices for Always On Display. I've used it for about 2 hours and haven't seen any glitches, but I did a full clean install. Some people will be happy they didn't move the clock like every other manufacturer.

All that said, there is no fresh look or feel to the update. Pixel Experience or Pixel Experience Dark for the G7 themes works great on the V35 with Pie.

I think I have a theme from the LG "store" or what ever it is built into the phone, that is not removable, and is forcing some old notification bar icons and general look and feel. I will try the Pixel Experience Dark themes and see what happens. Thanks for the info.

Any one have ideas on removing an installed theme? Also, I cant seem to update the Pixel Launcher. I've switched back to Nova, but I have no way of uninstalling Pixel Launcher so I can try and do a clean install rather than try to update. I have no "trash can" next to any of my installed launchers, and I have 2 besides Pixel and stock LG stuff.

Pixel Ex and Pixel Ex dark both make me happier with a somewhat new look. But it's just a look. Where's the vertical volume, and what Pie Gestures are here?

not sure why you're unable to edit APN...for T-Mobile it automatically downloaded, but I can edit all items. I have a ATT flashed to Korean, LG U+ Pie
