LG G3 Android 5.0 Lollipop Update Spotted Landing In The Middle East In …
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

There is little doubt that the last few months have been the Lollipop months of the Android era. Ever since Google unveiled Android 5.0 Lollipop and released the source code to AOSP, everyone has been obsessed with when Lollipop will land on their devices. In fact, it has not only been the device owners that have been obsessed with Lollipop but also the manufacturers. Most of the big names of the android world were quick to jump on each others bandwagon and all announced a similar time-frame for when they will release the android update to all their devices. As such, we now find ourselves back in among Lollipop hype again now, with all those carriers working hard to make sure their promises are kept…to the best of their ability.

One of those manufacturers who were quick out of the door with their Lollipop update was LG. The other South Korean manufacturer was quick to push out Lollipop to the LG G3, although it still has not reached all devices, on all carriers, in all regional areas. Well, the very latest on the onwards LG G3 Lollipop saga is that the update has now started rolling out in the Middle East. The latest news came fro…………… continues on Android Headlines – Android News

LG G3 Android Lollipop update arrives for UK

LG G3 Android Lollipop update arrives for UK
News from Phones Review:

If you have the flagship LG G3 smartphone and are in the UK then we have some news today that’s likely to be very interesting to you. Since Android 5.0 Lollipop released it has so far reached relatively few devices, but now the LG G3 Android Lollipop update is arriving for the UK, bringing a major upgrade to your device.

We’ve already seen the update arrive for some Nexus devices as well as a few Motorola handsets and selected others, and back in early November we reported that LG had beaten many other manufacturers to the starting line with Lollipop. At that time LG announced that G3 owners would start to receive the update and that the first region to get it would be Poland with other key markets to receive it in the “near future.”

Even once an update releases for a device in one region it can take some weeks and even months for it to arrive to all regions and carrier models. Now it’s reported that the Android Lollipop update for the LG G3 has reached the UK and is currently being seeded to models on Vodafone UK. Now it has arrived for the phone on one UK carrier it’s likely to become available on further carriers soon.

The arrival…………… continues on Phones Review

LG G2 Kit Kat Update Available From Verizon Via Upgrade Assistant

LG G2 Kit Kat Update Available From Verizon Via Upgrade Assistant
News from Droid Life:

The LG G2 Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) update from Verizon is finally available as build VS98024A, though you can’t exactly grab it over-the-air. No, sir, this update is currently only available through Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant, which is only available on Windows for LG phones. Sorry, Mac homies.

In order to update on Windows, all you have to do is plug-in your LG G2, then either wait for Windows to prompt you for an action or open a folder and look for a Verizon/LG drive to appear. In that folder, you should find a SWUpgradeLauncher app that will walk you through the steps to getting your Kit Kat on. 

The update weighs in at around 2GB, so it’s substantial.

No word yet on when the update will be available OTA. In fact, Verizon’s own support pages still do not show that the update is available even though you can manually update through their software upgrade tool.

The process is pretty painless, so don’t be scared to give it a shot if you have a Windows machine. I was able to do it just fine on a virtual Windows 8 partition on my iMac.

LG launches budget L65 dual-SIM smartphone with Android Kitkat and Knock …
News from Firstpost:

South Korean smartphone maker LG has just launched a new dual-SIM Android smartphone called L65 for the Russian market. It is the newest member of its latest smartphone series of Android smartphones which include L70 and L90. The phone has appeared on the LG’s Russian website.

According to the site, L65 will come loaded with Android V4.4 (Kitkat) operating system out of the box. It has a 4.3 inch IPS display with a WVGA resolution (480×800) which is less than the L70 smartphone. Under its hood is a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with 1GB RAM. This is the same configuration which we saw in L70 and L90 models too.

The L65 has a 5MP rear camera that comes with autofocus feature but no LED Flash. The front camera comes with a meagre 0.3 megapixel resolution. This is in sharp contrast to 8 MP rear camera and 1.3 MP front camera which we saw in L90 as well as L70 models.

L65 has 4GB of built-in storage space which c…………… continues on Firstpost

LG G2 Android 4.4 KitKat update could begin late January; here’s a quick video …
News from Phandroid.com:

With Samsung beginning to upgrade their devices to Android 4.4 KitKat and HTC expected to do the same at some point soon, those in the LG camp were probably beginning to wonder when the upgrade would come out to the LG G2.

Thankfully, LG Saudi Arabia has shed some much needed light on that timeline. Folks in that region are in line to get it starting at the end of this month, according to the company’s Twitter page (though the post has since been deleted). South Korean users have already gotten it, though they are often first in line for everything considering that’s LG’s home turf.

We imagine they won’t be the one and only region to be enjoying it, so it’s probably safe to assume LG will start rolling it out in other regions to unlocked handsets from that time. Nothing’s certain, though, so don’t put too much stock into that. You should note that LG only ever promised to…………… continues on Phandroid.com

LG G Pro Lite Review: Is It The Best Mid-Range Android Phone?
News from Gizmodo India:

LG G Pro Lite seems like a decent attempt by LG to provide a larger display device at an affordable price, although it is slightly downgraded on the hardware side, but still performs decent when it comes to day to day usage.

What is it?

A smartphone little bit bigger than regular 5 inchers that we have in the market. For the fact LG G Pro Lite sports a 5.5 inch display but comes with slightly lower screen resolution of 540 x 960 qHD with a pixel density of nearly 200 pixels per inch. On the hardware front, it comes powered with Dual Core 1 GHz processor based on Cortex A9 architecture, 1 GB of RAM, 8 MP AF Rear Camera, 1.3 MP Fixed focus front camera. There is 8 GB of built in memory and it can be expanded further to up to 32GB card through a microSD card. It’s backed by big 3140 mAh battery runs on 4.2.1 Jelly bean.

Who is it for?

For all those who need an affordable well known branded phablet to use, it should not cost them a bomb and it should come with decent hardware specifications.

Design

LG G Pro Lite looks good and but does not create any distinctive image in terms of the design. In terms of placement of touch capacitive buttons it follows the old layout which we have seen in some budgets android phones from LG in the past. It looks like any other plastic…………… continues on Gizmodo India

T-Mobile LG G2 Receiving Update D80110g, Start Checking Your Phones Now
News from Droid Life:

If you are the owner of an LG G2 on T-Mobile, you should start checking your device for an update. T-Mobile is rolling out a tiny OTA update to these devices on their network starting today and running through the next few weeks. The build number will be updated to D80110g, but other than that not too much will change. 

In fact, the only hint of change that we are receiving from T-Mobile is that this OTA will be “improvements to software stability.” No new features or anything more specific than that, but T-Mobile and LG figured that this 147MB update was important enough to rollout on its own. As long as the phone is better off after the update we are happy.

To check for the update, head into Settings>About device>Software update >Update Now. If you do not see it already or after checking, keep looking over the next week.

CES 2014: Hands-on preview with the LG Fireweb Firefox phone
News from ITProPortal:

Mozilla is aiming its line of Firefox phones at emerging markets, promising smartphone power at sub-smartphone prices. The latest entry, the LG Fireweb, is a bigger, faster Firefox handset, but still keeps prices down. We had the chance to go hands-on with the phone at CES.

The LG Fireweb is a boxy, squarish phone, with a 1GHz processor, 4in, 320 x 480 screen and 5-megapixel camera. That gives it a leg up on the earlier ZTE Open, but it’s still a lower-resolution screen than I’m used to seeing at this size. It’s a 3G phone, and it has GPS and a built-in FM radio.

The major feature here, of course, is Firefox OS, and that works similarly to other Firefox phones I’ve seen. The 1GHz processor definitely helped; while I wouldn’t call the phone completely snappy, it was less sluggish than previous Firefox phones were. Like the ZTE Open which we tested in September, the phone has a full web browser and a range of apps which are either web bookmarks or locally stored HTML5 apps. I clicked on the Wikipedia app, and scrolled through a page finding the experience much like a basic Android phone or an older iPhone…………… continues on ITProPortal

When is My Android Phone Getting the Android 4.4 “Kit Kat” Update?

When is My Android Phone Getting the Android 4.4 “Kit Kat” Update?
News from Droid Life:

In the past, we have done our best to track the update situation for most of Verizon’s phones whenever a new major version of Android is released. We did it with both Ice Cream Sandwich and then Jelly Bean. Since Android 4.4 “Kit Kat” has been available for almost two months and has rolled out to a number of devices, it seemed like the perfect time to get a post going. We are going to do things a little different this time, though.

In the past, we stuck to a list of Verizon’s top devices for a number of reasons. But now that we’re seeing people jump to prepaid, T-Mobile, and other carriers quite regularly here at DL, we are expanding the list with Kit Kat. As devices from the four major carriers see updates to Kit Kat, we will add them to this list to hopefully create the ultimate collection of Android 4.4 updates. That’s a lofty g…………… continues on Droid Life

Verizon’s LG G2 Gets A Software Update (VS98012B) That Isn’t Android 4.4

Verizon’s LG G2 Gets A Software Update (VS98012B) That Isn’t Android 4.4
News from Android Police:

Like it says right up there in the title, don’t get your hopes up. The latest over-the-air update to the Verizon version of the LG G2 in not an updated version of Android, and it won’t get rid of those awful front-facing logos, either. But it does have a few much-needed bug fixes and security additions, plus it should smooth out some of the wrinkles in the initial release of LG’s customized software.

Here’s the changelog for software version, straight from the horse’s mouth (PDF link):

  • Video playback quality has been improved when viewing on websites
  • Dialing *611 will now appear on device screen
  • TalkBack reads each deleted letter when using Messaging Keyboard
  • Backup Assistant Plus resumes syncing after completing a voice call
  • Device lockups have been reduced
  • Viewdini application has been removed
  • Verizon Cloud app is now preloaded

LG Optimus G 4.1.2 Jelly Bean Update, Release G2 please
News from Phones Review:

As you know we like to keep our readers here on Phones Review right up to date with all the latest news regarding the various Android firmware updates. Recently a growing number of handsets are beginning to see later versions of the Android JB update, and today we now have news that the LG Optimus G has begun receiving the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update, but we still have no solid information on the release date for the Optimus G2.

LG is looking to make more of a presence in the Android world lately, as besides the Nexus 4 the company released its flagship Optimus G smartphone towards the end of last year. Now if you are the owner of the handset we have some good news for you as according to the Android Authority the company has announced the release of the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update for the Optimus G.

The update has kicked off in South Korea and should see the software rolling out to other regions in the coming days and weeks, but just like any new software release on the platform certain carriers can hold the firmware up.

LG Reportedly Halts Nexus 4 Production, Perhaps to Make Way for New Product …
News from Droid Life:

After LG’s James Fisher took the stage during their CES press event and mentioned that the Nexus 4 was the “first of many” products that they are working on with Google, the tech world immediately started trying to figure out exactly what he meant. Are there really going to be multiple LG Nexus device in the near future? If so, when? At Mobile World Congress in February? Later in the year? 

Also, what about the Nexus 4? It has now been completely sold out for almost a month with no signs of a return. The phone is new enough that we can’t actually see Google deciding to push the phone aside for something newer. However, the IBTimes is reporting that LG has alleged halted production on the device to make way for upcoming handsets. MWC is always a popular spot for phone manufacturers to show off their latest goodies, but LG’s Fisher also mentioned they have other “tier-one premium” handsets in various screen sizes to release throughout the year.

LG Optimus G Gets New Update, Enhancement Mod

Friday, January 11th, 2013

LG Optimus G Gets New Update, Enhancement Mod
News from International Business Times AU:

LG Optimus G on Sprint is set to receive a minor update patch via OTA, which the U.S. telco said has started rolling out, to improve certain features of the phone and solve previously reported bugs.

That’s good news matched with a bad news. Sprint has yet to dispatch JellyBean for the LG smartphone following its earlier pledge for a December release. It appears that the promise will not be fulfilled this January.

What LG Optimus G owners are firmware tweaks that will enhance the phone’s Visual Voicemail feature and stretch its battery life. This update will also fix the freezing and reset problems experience d by Optimus G users, connected apparently to YouTube use.

It is also expected that Wi-Fi problems will be dealt with by the patch, which will bump up the LG phone to build LS970ZV9.

The update process is now on live status and Optimus G owners should automatically get the prompt to trigger the action anytime soon. But those who can hardly wait have the option to get the update file manually. Simply tap the Settings, scroll down to About Phone and then check for software upgrade.

If the download is there for delivery, authorise the action and make sure to follow the instruction for the procedure to wrap up without glitch. It’s best to do upgrade on a fully-charged handset to avoid i…………… continues on International Business Times AU
