My G4 has just finished installing the v20d January software update which according to the change log promises to improve battery life/management.

Has anyone else got this or seen an improvement? I'm also on Android 6.0 too.

Helpfully however, the software update uninstalled a load of apps for me! Only way I know this is because some of my folders on the homescreen are missing apps (Facebook, Messenger, Garmin Connect etc) and they are also missing from the app drawer. Since I've only noticed the ones in folders missing so far I'm now going to have to work out what else it uninstalled. Thanks LG! :mad:
 
I have just had my replacement EE and no update from V10K. My last one I had rooted and running Genysis ROM V20C which I felt had improved battery and performance, but that could be tweeks in the firmware. V10x is 5.1.x, V20x is 6.x, if we get V30x it will be 6.5.x or whatever "N" will be after Marshmallow.
Strange that it deleted your apps if you didn't Factory Reset too though. Perhaps if you came from LP to MM it needed to clear out properly to save conflicts, I don't know. But if you were already on V20x I really see no need to delete any data unless you selected to (which is advisable after an update anyway to guarantee best performance etc and save any conflicts, obviously after backing it all up).

My G4 (unlocked on Talk Talk/vodafone) updated to V20d on 02/02/2016. Since then the user interface has been frozen every morning and will not swipe until "UI has stopped working" error message eventually appears and it restarts, after that all is fine.
I did not notice any apps getting deleted though.
