New update.

Sent from LGE LM-V500N using GAGT
Please share feedbacks in a few weeks time after completion of the new update. Any effects or improvements noticed on smartphone battery life, HIFI Quad DAC etc.?

Thanks in advance.

Not much major improvements, according to the official site. Some minor QoL tweaks and some 5G support. Gonna check on the "default to 5G" setting later.

Take note though, when the phone resets, it will be stuck on the bootloader screen for quite a long time. I was staring at the U+ 5G bootup screen for quite a while. Don't do anything, it will bootup normally. Updates will still be finalising even after booting up. This update seems to take longer than usual.

Dial dial touch I believe is the dial phone number screen. The touch area really is wide, you can touch near the edge of the screen and it will register touch for the nearest number. Lol

The default 5G thingy I believe is this:





Which is set to "5G preferred" as default. Maybe. I cannot confirm. Can someone test it by changing to "LTE preferred" then do the update? Coz I can't remember my previous settings.

Here's the roaming network type preferred. Mine was still at "LTE preferred" (unchanged).



So not sure if there is another hidden setting that checks for 5G first or does it follow this selection by default without turning on 5G search.

The DAC thing is just adding a volume number to the bar that shows when you change the volume.





App wise for dual screen extended view, I don't use those three mentioned. The AR thingy I also don't use.

Overal, its a minor QoL update. Other than google security patch, there isn't any real performance update. The default 5G roaming thing should not affect battery life if you are not using roaming, whatever they mean by default anyway.

Thank you, Shdwfalcon, for sharing.

I have since updated the software.

Noticed that under Network mode, the options available for selection are 5G preferred and LTE preferred while under roaming network mode, in addition to 5G, LTE, it also have 3G preferred.

Yup. My post #710 screenshot has it too. Maybe it is for places where 4G network is still lacking or in infancy stage where you might have to travel to.

Noticed this issue and found a reddit thread "Problem with the stock Weather App".

New software update:









Nothing of importance, if you ask me.

Something to note is the security thingy "upgrade". Not sure what it means.
