    Default Looking to change OS on phone

    Hey all, so I currently have an LG V20 phone that I got for Christmas last year. The reason for this post is that I really dont have an issue with the hardware of this phone but rather the OS. Some of the things I have noticed is that my phone would go into this form of 'freeze' mode where when I try to get into my phone (its locked with a pw) to unlock it, the OS doesnt bring up the screen that has all the messages that I need to read (like emails, Airbnb, texts, etc), but rather it treats it like theres nothing there. I will also say that I have yet to update my phone through the whole year because im not sure if the updates will actually fix this issue or not. Before anyone asks, this screen that I refer to happens in both cool & hot conditions (of course I experienced it most in the hot Texas heat, which was to be expected but when I want to get somewhere & need to use Google maps is not the time for my phone to freeze).

    Therefore, I am coming here to get some feedback on possible alternatives that people might use over Android. I am also fully aware that this is the minority of peeps since most people use either stock Android or iOS on their phones as they just go about their day. I used to own an old school OnePlus phone and really enjoyed the flexibility that the OS gave to the phone. Unfortunately it seems that Android doesn't seem to have the same form of flexibility to that platform.

    Anyways, feel free to give your feedback & I look forward to what each person has to say. Do keep in mind that this isn't going to be a rush process at all. Its more of keeping my options open while I continue to enjoy the hardware of the phone itself.

    Just so you know, most phones these days don't come with stock android anymore from what I've seen. Manufacturers seem to modify their OS into their own kinda thing but its still Android. I suggest you look into the Lineage OS. It seems to be supported on the LG V20. Just be sure to follow their steps carefully as none of us want to brick any of our devices.

    While I'd love for there to be more options when it comes to phone OS's, there really isn't a lot of variety, you'll most likely be sticking with a custom version of Android, especially since you have an lg V20 (I had a stock G5, so I kinda understand). While LineageOS is an option, unless you can unlock your boot loader, and work with TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) it may not be the greatest option to flash a custom Android version. However, if you do want to extend the life of your phone, and migrate off of LG's version of android, then LineageOS or ResurrectionRemix are both good options, I don't know how to work either of them, but they're the most known custom and widely available options for the LG V20. I'll drop the link for LineageOS 17 for you, if you do choose to go down that route. https://forum.xda-developers.com/v20...g-v20-t4010893

    Hey guys I appreciate your feedback & will study those while on vacation. I will watch Youtube to see just how difficult it is to move over to it.
