T-Mobile LG G5 getting Android 8.0 Oreo update

lgg5handsontmo

Nearly one year after receiving its Android 7.0 update, the T-Mobile LG G5 is receiving another major OS update.

The T-Mobile version of the LG G5 is getting an update to Android 8.0 Oreo. TmoNews reader Jeff received the update over the air, and several users on Reddit appear to have updated recently, too. The update bumps you to version H83030c with Android 8.0 and the August 1, 2018 Android security patches.

T-Mo hasn’t updated its LG G5 support page with info on this update yet, so it’s unclear what other changes might be included. If you’ve got a T-Mobile LG G5 and you haven’t yet updated to Oreo, you can manually check for your update by going into Settings > About phone > Update Center > System update > Check for update.

LG G5 owners, once you update your phone to Oreo, be sure to let us know how the update is working for you!

Thanks, Jeff!

    9-25, I just received the oreo update (lg g5 t-mobile). Just a few minutes into it & I already like it.

    Light at the end of the tunnel for my V20.

    It’s either going to make my phone new again, or slow it down even worse and make me upgrade after so long. It’s the longest I’ve held out thanks to an awesome device.

    Pie though…

    • Josh Schoonover

      Yeah, I guarantee that the G5 won’t get Pie. It seems like Pie isn’t that great of an update though, based on what’s been said about various bugs and design choices, like limiting the number of apps that appear at the top to accommodate notched phones.

    I’m very happy with the update. Lots of new features that I really appreciate and the overall phone experience feels smoother. Great value for a phone I bought for less $100 on eBay.

    The new lg g5 update it a piece of actual crap. It does not allow me to set my phone up the way i like and kills my battery 5 times faster

  • Leticia Sangalang

    For me, it killed my phone. I’ve been in a continuous reboot loop since Tuesday :(

  • Annie_OK

    All of my text message history, which was extensive, is gone. I can’t believe there was NO indication that this was a major update and that basic data was at risk.

    Does anyone know of a way to recover the lost text messages and attachments?

    • Rev_Pizzaguy

      I didn’t lose any of my text message history when I did the update. Before I do any large updates like this, I backup my phone with LG Bridge and SMS Backup & Restore, just in case.
