Perhaps the best flagship ever to be rolled out by LG, the LG G3 holds the record as the first smartphone that offers users with a screen resolution of 1440 × 2560.
However, this amazing creation from LG has been operating on the latest version of Android KitKat.
Just recently, the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system was launched and as it seems, LG are not ready to lag behind owing to the fact that Android is nearly taking over the world of smartphones. It does not want to fall into the same hole that Nokia fell in, when they ignored the revolution that Android has brought in the mobile industry. It is why LG is not interested in the users of its flagship model to lag behind with the current developments in the world of Android and smartphones. LG have been quick and swift to react to the updated changes in Android 5.0 Lollipop by coming up with an update for all of their LG G3 users.
Updates Available in Poland and Korea
One problem with this update is that it is not going to happen simultaneously across the globe. LG is releasing the updates place by place. This week, users of LG G3 in Korea will be the lucky ones after Polish users went through similar luck last week.
The release of these updates by LG just coincides with the discussion that was held in the first week of November on a Polish website regarding the release of these updates. Actually, it is rather interesting that the company tried its best in sticking with the provided schedule and released the update just on time, according to the schedule.
Latest Features and New Options for Customization Included
The latest update of Android 5.0 Lollipop for LG G3 also comes with new features as well as new options for customization. However, one important update that has been included in the updated Lollipop 5.0 is the great improvement in performance. What this means is that users of LG G3 smartphones will be treated to improved phone performance while on their devices; be it when making calls, surfing the web, streaming online content or even playing online video games.
How to Avail the Android 5.0 Lollipop Update for your LG G3 Smartphone
In order to avail this update, you need to do one of these two things. You can either get the updated Lollipop 5.0 for your G3 from the official LG website or get it over the air. However, as it stands; downloading the updates over the air is not available for all users across the globe; it is currently limited to users in Poland and Korea.
In addition, it is recommended that you stay connected to a reliable Wi-Fi connection when downloading the updates over the air. Better still, any other internet connection can be used for the process as long as it is guaranteed not to fail at all costs.
The Rest of the World Waits
As much as the updates for the LG G3 smartphone are available in Korea and Poland; they are yet to be availed in other parts of the world. Making the matter even worse is the fact that there is no pre-released schedule of how and when the updates will reach other global users of this device. What remains to be a fact is that these updates won’t take long before they are available across the globe.
If LG decides to release the updates based on locations; then it is probable that some users might take ages before they get this update since the company sells their brands in over one hundred countries across the globe.
Rumor has it that at least 60% of the global populations using LG G3 will be running on the updated version of Android 5.0 Lollipop by the end of 2014. After the company is done with rolling out updates for the G3 model, the G2 is expected to follow suit.
This will be extremely good news for LG G2 users as this update in Android 5.0 Lollipop massively boosts the performance of this device.
Improved Battery Performance and Customization
The latest developments in Android 5.0 Lollipop do not just revolve around the interface and the material design; however, this updated Android operating system is also all about improving the performance of your device’s battery by working to reduce the power consumed by apps.
Furthermore, this OS enables users to customize the functioning of the device in a way that is convenient to them. The operating system has no compatibility issues with browsers and the customizations you make won’t affect your online experience with Google products.
