LG G3 Android 5.0 Lollipop Update Now Available in US
Good news for LG G3 owners from Sprint in the US-the wait is over as the newest Android 5.0 Lollipop update is now made available starting today.
LG started a few weeks ago that the update is coming soon. Last week, AT&T first offered the latest Lollipop update for LG G3 smartphones.
LG's brand new flagship smartphone is one of the best overall devices in 2014 with its top-tier specs, 5.5-inch QHD display, and ultra-small sized bezels.
In December 2014, Android 5.0 Lollipop update first hit Poland, South Korea, India and some European countries.
Sprint also pre-empted the firmware for Samsung's Galaxy S5 with almost the same features.
LG G3 smartphones can be downloaded through over-the-air (OTA) update.
The latest roll out for the Sprint device can be done in phases which will possibly last for over a month. When the system update notification pops up, tap on it and follow onscreen instructions.
To manually update you device's operating system, here's a good way to go:
1. Go to "Settings."
2. Click "System Updates."
3. Click "Update LG Software."
4. Choose "Check for Update."
Sprint did not indicate memory space size needed in the update, Android 5.0 Lollipop update for LG G3 is expected to require a large amount of space, which normally reaches from 800MB to 1GB.
