    I'm waiting on two updates. Both are said to be coming by the end of the year. I'm waiting on Oreo for my Samsung Tab A 8 (2017) and Pie for my LG G7 ThinQ. Which one will come first? Let's have some fun with this. I'll make a it a poll. Also tell me why you voted the way you did. I'm curious to hear your thinking. Security updates don't count. Full OS update only. Winners get bragging rights.

    I am not here to bash Sammy, but my vote is LG. Sammy seems to be the slowest when it comes to OS updates. :cool:

    Don't know about LG, but Sammy is releasing Pie Beta this week with full final being sometime in January.

    They did release Oreo for my tablet but in other countries but not in the US yet. Pie is being tested in South Korea on the G7. It's a toss up but your right Sammy doesn't have the greatest track record for timely updates.

    My tablet won't see pie until 2020 but it should if they stick with the 2 OS update policy. Oreo will the first for this tablet. It came with Nougat.

    Sammy is stepping up their updates compared to the their past track record as far as their flagship phones go.

    I've heard that too but my tablet is far from being a flagship.

    Samsung takes forever before the US gets updates. I'm thinking the LG too.
