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.
The update is currently available in the United Kingdom and Poland but it will come to other devices in the following days.
LG is the second company after Samsung to update its flagship phone to the latest version of Android, in this case Lollipop.
The new update brings all the features that you can expect from Lollipop like new Material Design, redesigned user interface, enhanced security features and new ART runtime system.
