Verizon LG G2 gets Android 5.0 Lollipop update
Android 5.0 Lollipop may be considered outdated already since some handsets already got their Android 5.1 updates. On the other hand, a lot of powerful smartphones and phablets are still stuck with Android 4.4 KitKat. LG G3 on Verizon Wireless, for example, did not get the Lollipop update yet, but its predecessor got it yesterday.
Big Red's LG G2 got a new firmware which carries version VS98039A and brings the usual Lollipop goodies and a few LG-exclusive tweaks as well, as you can see below:
- improved notification panel
- searchable settings
- improved lock screen
- minimalist interface design similar to the custom UI of the LG G3
- "Avoid bad Wi-Fi connections" added to Wi-Fi settings
- floating action button added in some main apps
Since this update has started to roll out about a day ago, it is possible that not all users received theirs yet. In the meantime, Verizon needs to work hard on bringing the update to the LG G3 users on their network as well. There is no official information on its date of arrival, but we will get back to it as soon as it comes out.
