LG_G2_Back_Camera_Lens_Power_Volume_Buttons_TA

Starting today, T-Mobile customers with the LG G2 will begin to receive a software update. It unsurprisingly is for Lollipop. The carrier says that the update will take place between April 14 and May 22, but we assume everyone will be updated fairly quick. The changelog issued by T-Mobile only states that Android 5.0 Lollipop is among the new features.

Let us know in the comments when you receive the over-the-air (OTA) update.

Verizon LG G2 can now be upgraded manually to KitKat

LG_G2_Front_Bottom_LG_Logo_TA

Who likes waiting for a carrier to update a device to the latest version of Android? Especially when that carrier is Verizon. Big Red is notoriously slow when it comes to updating devices. And while the LG G2 still does not have the Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade being rolled out over-the-air (OTA), it can be done manually through Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant. The program, though, can only run through a Windows PC; however, having a Windows partition on a Mac reportedly works.

Simply connect your LG G2 to a USB port on a computer and install Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant. From there, it should instruct you how to get KitKat running on your G2. Make sure your device has enough space as the update may be rather large.

Sprint pushes out KitKat update for the LG G2

Sprint has begun pushing out the Android 4.4 KitKat update to their version of the LG G2. The changelog for the update isn’t very detailed, listing that it’s just an upgrade to Google’s latest version of Android and a fix for Sprint’s Next Radio audio problems. You’ll still get all of the improvements that KitKat brings to all devices, however.

If you own a G2 on Sprint’s network, be sure to start periodically checking for the update. Let us know in the comments if any of you have gotten it already.

LG will cut the price of the G2 and G Pro 2 when the Galaxy S 5 releases

lg_g_pro_2_official_color_options

LG and Samsung are two of the most competitive Android OEMs, so it’s not uncommon to see the two base some of their strategies around what the other company is doing. LG is making the latest move in the form of some price drops right around the launch of Samsung’s Galaxy S 5.

According to an LG official, the LG G2 and the G Pro 2 will see some international price cuts. The devices aren’t ancient by any stretch, but they aren’t on quite the same level as 2014 flagships, so a price drop will make them very desirable for the forseeable future. It’s probably not going to deter many people away from getting the latest and greatest devices if that’s what they’re after, but for someone that’s trying to get the most bang for their buck, they could very easily be swayed towards a cheaper 2013 high-end phone.

The Android 4.4 KitKat update is now available as an OTA for the international LG G2. The KitKat version has been available for the Korean LG G2 since last December, and AT&T G2 users got their hands on the KitKat update last month.

The update will be a staggered one so it might take a few days or weeks before it will be available for your device. The latest KitKat update brings an improved user interface and battery life, faster processing speed, cloud print feature, and an improved “Kock On” feature.

The new update will bring a number of standard KitKat features, such as the white notifications bar icons, as well as a number of performance upgrades.
