Yet another reason to avoid LG products like the plauge, and why more people should learn how to root their phones.


@Alex888 that's one takeaway from this discussion.  The other is that this is yet another reason to avoid buying your devices from your carrier.  Buy direct.  My OnePlus 7 won't have any carrier-enforced lockdown, because it will come direct from the Shenzhen factory.  It won't be missing a SIM card slot or running butchered firmware under the carrier's update approval control, both like the T-mobile version of the 6T, nor any carrier imposed branding, boot animations, or bloatware.  Buy direct!

Netflix and Super Mario Run aren't fans of rooted phones. It would not surprise me if Google Pay wasn't into working on rooted phones. You can flash a Magisk Module to fix that sort of issue though.

Yes, it does.

 

I do not not know what the current status is, but at least at one point, Netflix would not run on rooted Android devices.  In addition, there were also problems with most of the Canadian national tv network apps (CTV, GlobalGo, City Video).  I don't know for sure because my device isn't rooted but that's at least what I read in some of the user reviews.
