    Hi guys. I'm still around, just lurking. Here's my rant.

    I'm still waiting for Android 10 for my G7 thinq. It's been a great phone but I'm tied of waiting for updates. LG makes great phones. I was looking at some of their new ones and they are nice. I just read a story about them trying a "reboot" because they are losing money like crazy. Why is it so hard for them to understand? They need customer/brand loyalty. And one way to get it is to support their phones with timely updates. I'd love to but another LG but they just don't get it. So I'm patiently waiting to see what Motorola's new Edge phone is like. Sorry LG.

    Hey man I feel ya ...I think they just don't get it ...and one of the reasons why their phone prices plummet after a short time from a release ...I mean Samsung has been great lately even beating our Pixel with updates ....we just need better updates ...I just don't get them ...marketing is horrible..I never see any incentives with their phones for new purchases ..

    It's not only LG, everything you said are some of the reasons I bought us both a Pixel. I love Moto phones, owned just about every one the past 10 years. But the lack of updates is getting old. I mean come on....a few bug fixes here & there mixed in with some timely security updates...is that too hard to do? And their support forum has really frustrated me recently. I guess some companies just want to sell phones, and providing after sale support (to include security patches & bug fixes) is not a top priority.

    I was hoping to get the Motorola Edge as my next phone but from the leaks on AA it looks to be a VZ exclusive. Bad move Moto.

    I'm not surprised. They have a long standing history of Verizon exclusives, followed by an Unlocked model for sale on their website later on.

    I like everything about it except the edge display. I'm not a fan of any edge display.

    Yeah I'd like to get away from that trend ...though I did see they threw in a couple of functions with it ..

    Hopefully it's like the Z4, a Verizon exclusive and eventually an unlocked version for sale on their website. Seems like Moto & VZW have an agreement to give Verizon the most 5G phones.

    Timely updates are one the things LG has unfortunately not been very good at. The edge ehh not my kind of phone. It's thick and still has a camera bump.
