Sprint announced this morning that its variant of the LG G2 is ready to receive an update to Kit Kat (Android 4.4). No other details were provided, but we do know from the update that hit the AT&T variant what we can expect.
According to AT&T’s changelog, we are looking at restyled UI elements in the notification and navigation areas, improved battery efficiency, faster processing speed, cloud printing, and enhancements to Knock On. (more…)
Ever since it was introduced with the LG G2, the KnockOn tap-to-wake software that LG patented has been a major focal point of its OEM software.

Let’s hear your thoughts in the comments section below.

Even if Samsung apparently gave consumers the shaft with no QHD display on the Galaxy S5, and the company’s CEO denies any type of premium line of the device that features one, LG is wasting no time in making one of its own.
In new reported screenshots leaked from the possibly upcoming LG G3, a QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 is all but confirmed. (more…)
