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!
Verizon approved the update yesterday during all of that Android M madness, so we are just now sharing. But yes, this update is ready as VS98524B or “24B.” The changelog speaks of Bluetooth, Interruptions, and Advanced Calling tweaks that you probably do not care one bit about. If this update doesn’t also include a massive amount of bug fixes, then it is a complete failure.
Go grab the update and then tell us if your phone is stable again for the first time in three months.
To try and pull the update, head into Settings>About phone>Check for updates.
