It’s beginning to age, and a sequel is looming larger and larger on the horizon, but LG’s G2 is still one of Android’s top dogs. Some even say it’s an overall better machine than the much younger Samsung Galaxy S5, what with its unique button layout, compact form factor, OIS camera and gigantic battery.
Cutting-edge hardware is nothing though sans up to date software, so it’s time to rejoice at last, as LG has earlier today started sending update prompt messages to international users in a host of European and Asian countries. By tapping “accept”, you’ll get the chance to board the Android 4.4 KitKat bandwagon, which G2 owners on AT&T and T-Mobile US caught already.
As usual, the upgrade is bound to roll out gradually around the world, so don’t panic if it dodges you for an additional few days. Even weeks. Trust me, in the end, the waiting will be worth it.
Aside from revamping the user interface, the chocolaty firmware shall improve battery efficiency, processing speed, Google Cloud printing and Knock on responsiveness. A number of bugs may be squashed too, assuming there were any glitches on previous Android versions, and everything from camera performance to Wi-Fi should ever so slightly progress.
Alright, Verizon, Sprint, enough is enough, it’s time you “promoted” the LG G2 to KitKat as well.
