After a few weeks of waiting, the LG G3 has finally received the official Android 5.0 Lollipop update from LG. Words about a possible Lollipop update for the LG G3 started a couple of weeks ago when someone leaked a LG Lollipop firmware for the G3. Users could install it but it wasn’t stable and had a lot of bugs.
But now LG has released the official and final Lollipop update for its flagship device. The firmware is final which means everything works as it should and no bugs are present. Users can update right now through OTA.

At the moment, the update has rolled out only to Vodafone in the United Kingdom and Poland and more countries will be eventually added.
If you don’t live in these countries, don’t worry. The update will eventually arrive to your phone and you will be able to download and install it.
Thanks to the new ART runtime system and software optimizations, the phone is a lot smoother and battery life is better.
All told the LG G3 is definitely worthy of the “superphone” ranks and should be on your short list of devices, if you want it all and like living life in high resolution.
lolipop 5.0 stupidest ever, i check review and videos on the lg g3, looks nice, I buy brand new one in a box with lolipop 5.0 “NEWER” OS and guess what? I have old looking navigation home touch screen buttons, missing features like home touch button transparency,battery options, only save battery on 10% or 15%, no up to 50%,
I dont have options what to turn off when I enable battery save,no home touch button gradient style, cannot install other styles for these buttons because its new and now I am stuck in a bootloop because I tried to root it just to change these UGLY buttons that piss me off!
I already regret getting LG.
It has freaking 2 different colors of the same style for home touch buttons, it has hundreds of different themes for the home screen but not even the option to change these buttons wtf.
WTF indeed, an update doesn’t mean freaking remove the horse power of the engine and make the car bulkier, NO, BAD developer, BAD, BAD.
