Verizon’s LG G3 is Getting an Update Today, Hopefully to Fix All of Its Many Issues

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.

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…)
