A little late to the party, but welcomed nevertheless, LG’s G2 is being upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat as we speak. On T-Mobile, that is, as AT&T actually got a head start last week. Verizon and Sprint? They’re keeping their users waiting, but probably not for long.
Focusing on T-Mo, let’s mention today sees KitKat rolling out OTA (over-the-air), though some owners may have already be on Android 4.4, since the chocolaty software package was available via LG PC Suite starting last Thursday.
Whatever your preferred update method, expect the customary 4.4 tweaks, improvements and enhancements, as well as specific user experience revisions, bug fixes and auto brightness advances. Sounds hefty and generous, yet apparently KitKat only takes around 150 MB of storage space on the G2.
According to T-Mobile, G2 owners will be automatically prompted to upgrade between March 6 and March 25. Alternatively, you can reach into Settings, then General, About Phone, Update Center, System Updates and tap Check Now for a manual examination. Nothing there? You know the drill, be patient and it will come… eventually.
Not on theLG G2 bandwagon yet? Then you might want to jump in, as Magenta sells the splendid 5.2 incher for a total of $499.20, spread out in 24 monthly installments of $20.80 each. No upfront charges and no lengthy, pesky contracts needed.
