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…)
Verizon’s Galaxy S5 variant is receiving an update today to version VRU2BOE1. The update is minor, as the title of this post suggests, only bringing with it the Galaxy Apps store (bloat!) and fingerprint scanner unlocking for Microsoft Exchange accounts. That’s it!
The update appears to be live for most, so feel free to check for it in Settings>About phone>Check for updates. (more…)
If you own a Galaxy Note 4 through Verizon and feel like grabbing an update a bit early, feel free to plug in to a PC and get busy in Kies. According to readers of ours, a massive 2GB update is available as build N910VVRU2BOF1. It’s still Android 5.0.1, though, so don’t go in thinking this is a magical excursion into 5.1.
So far, we aren’t seeing anything notable after updating. In other words, we have no idea what the hell the 2GB is coming from. (more…)
Last week, the DROID Turbo was updated by Verizon and Motorola to run Android 5.1, after a very long wait by owners. Given that the Turbo was running Kit Kat up until last week, Turbo owners are still probably getting used to all of the changes inside Lollipop, and we want to know how it’s going for you so far.

According to Motorola’s David Schuster, the man with all of the update knowledge, Moto X (1st Gen) owners on Verizon and AT&T don’t have too much longer to wait in receiving the Android 5.1 update.
As stated in a Google+ post, the update is set to hit Verizon’s testing labs next week, and Motorola is currently waiting for AT&T’s lab approval. AT&T has been testing the update in their labs for the past week. (more…)
The Galaxy Note Edge from Samsung on Verizon is receiving its update to Lollipop, but do note, it is labeled as Android 5.0, not Android 5.1. Inside, users should see big changes to TouchWiz and other various features, including new animations and transitions between application windows. (more…)
If you own the Verizon-branded Nexus 6 and have not yet received the update to Android 5.1.1 (build LMY47Z), get ready, because Big Red has approved it for rollout.
This is the same build that already rolled out to Sprint and US Cellular models. It’s a minor bug fixer.
To check for the update, head into Settings>About phone. (more…)
Beginning today and concluding on 8/31, anyone who purchases a One M9 from HTC through a Verizon retailer will be gifted a $100 in Google Play credit, which is a solid bonus for anyone with a growing wish list on the Play store. (more…)
