When it comes to rolling out updates, LG has always lagged behind, as it has a way of slowly pushing them out. The company released LG G7 ThinQ as its flagship phone in 2018, coming with a lot of great features, including running on Android 8.0 Oreo, at that time. Fortunately, the LG G7 ThinQ device was part of the eligible devices to receive the Android 10 update a couple of months back. Recently, LG announced its plans for the Q3, 2020 update. Talking of its current update, it came with a lot of new user-privacy features and LG’s UX 9.0 skin on top of Android 10. Unfortunately, it also came with a few hidden bugs, just like most other software updates. According to some LG G7 ThinQ users, they started noticing a bug, preventing their battery estimated time remaining from showing, while discharging.
Furthermore, the users mentioned that the issue started after updating their devices to Android 10. Let’s have a quick look at some of the reports so far below:
