They need to send the updates to all compatible phones instead of just the phones that are trending. For example the LG G Vista 2 got the marshmallow update but not the LG G Vista 1. People are pretty much forced to buy new phone and the prices are rising.
The life cycle of software support is 2 years. Also, the Vista series is lower end meaning that the hardware may not be able to support the software.
I don't agree with it at all but that is they way it is. The V10 was apparently not going to get the Nougat update and now it will. Probably not before I pay it off. It's good though because I will never buy an LG smartphone again. Their support has been terrible for the flagship devices. Something like the Vista which isn't a flagship[p would probably not get it.
Yeah I have to say this is total [removed]! The V10 wasn't passed its support date When Nougat came out! Now 8.0 is coming out and we won't get that either! It's not LG who is preventing us from getting the update is Verizon. It [removed] me off that Other V10s have been updated but not Verizon! That's [removed].

No its not malfunctioning. But considering that The V10 was out within the 2year life cycle window. I would like to use the new version of Androids features, such as:
Double tap to switch between apps.
Run 2 apps at the same time...
Send texts while watching a movie.
Being able to Use Doze
Customize quick settings
Just to name a few of the enhanced features. Also, I own my phone, and yet I am unable to unlock my Bootloader so I can change carriers. Aside from the fact that my local Verizon store assured me that if changed my plans data size and I went over my data limit on my next bill I could change back to the unlimited plan. Yeah... That didn't happen either! So needless to say, as soon as my contract is up I'll be exploring my options after many, many years as a Verizon customer.
