On its update site for each of these devices, the company has listed out the improvements being brought in through these updates. So, among the three phones listed here receiving the software updates for February, the LG V35 ThinQ will see a long list of performance enhancements, the other two phones, the LG Q7 and the LG X4 will just see their Android security patch and practically nothing else.

There can be some minor issues to major fixes as well. Besides all these, the Android security patch has also been added.
Guidelines and Caution Given
In the notes given on the top of the update page, LG warns the users that there is a possibility that the update may throw up some errors. If the user has some important data residing in the phone, the user must take a backup. Similarly, the user is informed that once the new software update is downloaded and installed, there is no way the device can be set back to the older version.
