Im an Android user with AT&T service and unexpectedly an update for the LG v40 Thin Q came out May 14, 2020 and a lot of customization capabilities have been completely removed from LG SMART WORLD. 👎🏾
Once Android users have initiated the systems update and it has completed, all personalization users have chosen for their phone will be set to the NEW default LG has chosen for its user's instead.
1. The update removes pretty much all Themes from LG SMART WORLD (there are only 5) Themes no longer change the chat boxes in texting and don't work across phone system apps.
2. The update removes the ability to change the background image in texting through the app settings (Only white background or dark mode available)
3.) Users cannot change their chat bubbles in texting through the app settings or LG SMART WORLD ( they are now an obnoxious default green) the recipients' is a grey and cannot be changed.
4.) Changing the Font options are reduced in number
5.) The update removes all Icons from LG SMART WORLD ( users have the choice between 3) none look good
**LG Smart World used to be the best app exclusive to LG consumers. I used it religiously. Now its awful.
Perhaps this new update was released too soon because it seems that none of the unique features LG usually offers are available anymore and all themes I had downloaded before this update were made INCOMPATIBLE and cannot be used!
I stick around with LG because of the amazing customization capabilities. Please give them back to us.
I have an LG Stylo 5 and the same thing has happened to me when I updated my phone yesterday. My default icons are terrible and I lost all the background option as well. I am very unhappy about this update because I dislike the color green and now all my texts messages have bright green chat bubbles. Please give us back everything that was removed with this update. If not, can I do a reset on my phone so everything will reset before the update? I have also lost my ability to choose which apps I want updated or to even access a list of recent updates.
I would very much like to go back to the last version of op system for the LG Stylo 5!! I REALLY dislike
Is there a way to get back without losing all data?
Try going into accessibility and set the device in high contrast mode. It will remove all default background and clear out any customizations. Once settled you can disable high contrast and through system should revert back to normal. From there you may be able to change themes.
