Last night, a couple of lucky LG G3 owners on Verizon received a fluffy white treat by way of software update. The update appears to be Android 6.0 Marshmallow and software version 46A or VS98546A. (more…)
According to a handful of our readers, the LG G3 on Verizon is receiving a 353MB update to Android 5.1.1. The software version is VS98535B and the Android build is LMY47V.
We are still waiting for Verizon to post a changelog, but the update appears to be live for almost everyone. Feel free to try and pull it by heading into Settings>About phone>Software updates>Check for updates. (more…)
Lost in yesterday’s Android 6.0 Marshmallow bag of Nexus glory was a subtle announcement from T-Mobile as to which of its devices will receive the update to Google’s latest tasty treat. Via their software update status page, we can see a list of devices that have all entered the early development stage for the upgrade to Android 6.0.
Outside of the Nexus devices they support, which are about to receive the update, the rest are all still in stage 1, which is “Manufacturer Development.” In other words, T-Mobile is waiting for each individual OEM to get them updates for testing before being able to push it to your phone. It’ll be a while on some of these, unfortunately. (more…)
The LG G3 on Verizon did not benefit from Lollipop. Sure, everything on the phone looks prettier without KitKat, but that prettiness, unfortunately, has also meant having a phone that hardly performs normal (and critical) smartphone functions. Don’t believe me? Go look at Verizon’s community forum for the G3. It’s all lawsuit threats, complaints about this or that bug, and users asking how they can go back to Android 4.4. Almost immediately after the phone received its update to Android 5.0, the complaints started. Here we are almost three months later and they haven’t even slowed.
With that said, I may have good news, frustrated G3 owners. An update is ready to rollout to your phone! (more…)
Back in early April, T-Mobile began rolling out a Lollipop update for the LG G3. Sadly, the update must have sucked, because T-Mobile quickly pulled it from servers, not allowing anymore users to update to it. Now, in almost mid-June, Lollipop is officially back, according to T-Mo’s Des Smith. (more…)
To help spread awareness for LG’s VR for G3 headsets, we have in our possession three, count ’em 1, 2, 3 LG G3 headsets to give away. Each is for T-Mobile’s network, so if you are already on T-Mobile or plan on switching to the Uncarrier, these will be a nice little prize for you.
With VR for G3, which is based off of Google Cardboard, G3 owners can experience a somewhat basic virtual reality, complete with games and apps, all of which are available directly from Google Play. The VR for G3 is available directly from LG when you purchase a new G3 and select retailers, plus LG couples a QR code on the box where you can grab a few exclusive VR titles for your enjoyment.
So, if you are interested in winning, let’s get to it. (more…)
