I did the update and now my remote (Parot) bluetooth has lost the funtion of dialing for me. LG suport told me that is part of the new “enhancments”? I had to trad phones with my wifes enV3. It still works fine (wont update that one) In other words, I lost a feature that I paid for. My last LG phone.
