Verizon updates LG V20 today, has a slew of OTA updates set for tomorrow
Verizon sent out an update today for the LG V20, which contains the November Android security patch and software version VS99518A. Tomorrow, we expect to see Big Red push out updates to the Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, the LG G6, the Moto Z2 Force and the Moto Z Play. Outside of the LG V20's support page, the nation's largest carrier has yet to update the pages for the other smartphones receiving their OTA updates on Tuesday.

If you own any of these models and you're a Verizon subscriber, once you receive a notification telling you that the update has arrived on your handset, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi signal before starting the updating process. Additionally, make sure the battery is fully charged before downloading and installing the new files.

Chances are, all of the phones getting updated tomorrow are also receiving the latest Android security patch. Some of the models are way behind. For example, this will be the first update for the Verizon branded LG G6 since the dog days of August, which means that the phone is months behind with the July security update that the model currently sports. Whatever you do, do not daydream about this update containing Android 8 (Oreo), because that is what we would call a pipe dream. And the last thing you want to feel is disappointment.

This phone is amazing value these days: replaceable battery, Snapdragon 820 CPU, 4GB RAM, SD card, superb 5.7 QHD screen, excellent audio and call quality...and well under $400 if you shop around.
