Just yesterday, the AT&T LG G4 received an update that automatically installed itself without user permission. As you can imagine, that pissed some people off, especially those who assume the update is nothing more than a root killer. Today, a similar situation appears to be in the works for the T-Mobile variant of the LG G4. Readers of ours, as well as those in various forums, are reporting that a mysterious update is automatically installing and rebooting their phones. Not good. (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…)
T-Mobile told us to expect the LG G4 today and they delivered. You can now purchase the LG G4 from the Uncarrier for $0 with equal monthly payments of $24.99 per month. In case you don’t have a calculator handy, that means you will pay $599.76 over that 24-month period.
Don’t forget that T-Mobile is tossing in a free 128GB microSD card, though supplies are limited. Also, T-Mobile has an exclusive on the brown leather version and they haven’t even upped the price on it over the standard grey plastic model. That seems like a deal in and of itself, especially since you could swap it out if you decide you don’t like it or it doesn’t hold up to the elements.
Be sure to read our LG G4 review if you haven’t already.
The WiFi Calling update for Nexus 6s running on T-Mobile that began rolling out over the weekend now has a factory image and OTA .zip file from Google as build LYZ28E. This is still Android 5.1.1, of course, but the files may come in handy for those of you running your Nexus 6 on the Uncarrier’s network and have yet to receive the update. (more…)
The LG G4 is making its way to US stores! The phone that has clearly won Tim over, will be available starting tomorrow from T-Mobile’s online store before arriving in stores on June 3. Priced at $0 down with monthly payments of $24.99, you are looking at a $600 investment that will be well worth it. This is a fantastic phone, easily up there in terms of overall package with the Galaxy S6. (more…)
