Bad News Everyone! LG Optimus Black Will Not Get Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
Every smartphone around the market has its own pros and cons, no argue to that. However, one of many cons that can turn users into disappointed and even mad customers is when the manufacturer decides to write off some particular devices from receiving the future new software updates. That actually just happened to one smartphone from LG called LG Optimus Black. Recently, LG Canada just declared that
LG Optimus Black would not be getting the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the coming future.
Yeah, this can be such a slap in the face for the owners of this device. However, LG’s decision to not include
LG Optimus Black for the future Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich updates is still acceptable considering this phone was released back in the days of 2011, last year.
However, the owners of this device will feel disappointed even more when knowing that Samsung phone that also was released last year, Samsung GALAXY SII, one of Samsung’s special ones, would later be updated to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, while ICS update for this device was already an old news long time ago.
But again, this can be acceptable since we all know that Samsung GALAXY S II is selling like Justin Bieber’s albums around the market. No wonder!
Anyway, the bad news doesn’t come only to the owners of LG Optimus Black because the other LG’s smartphones from last year release, LG Optimus 2X, also won’t be updated either with Android ICS.
So there you go, apparently, having a smartphone from Samsung is a lot better than having a smartphone from LG. Hopefully, LG will still put the customers of its 2012’s devices as top priority in the future, making sure that they will still be getting even the newer builds of Android versions after the Jelly Bean.
