Verizon LG G2 Android update 

Verizon pushed the LG G2 Android 5.0 update at the end of March. Verizon released an elaborate 6-page document listing all the changes LG G2 owners would enjoy with the Lollipop update.

Unlike some manufacturers like HTC, who chose to integrate Lollipop gently into their interfaces, LG appears to have been more full-on in its embrace of the eagerly-anticipated update, acquiring more of a 'stock Android' look. It appears identical to the Lollipop look on the LG G3, with a flat Material Design-inspired interface, lock-screen notifications, and a reworked swipe-down notifications menu.

Sprint LG G2 Android update

The Sprint LG G2 is now the only major carrier G2 to miss out on Lollipop. As soon as there is more news on the Sprint Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the LG G2 we'll be sure to update this article.

If you can't wait to get Lollipop on your LG G2, or still don't know when it'll be arriving on your network, then you can tease yourself by checking out how Lollipop looks on the LG G2 in this strange leaked video below:

    Sprint rolled out the Lollipop 5.0.2 last week:)

  • My Sprint LG G2 updated to Lollipop today.

  • Where I can get the Lollipop for my LG G2?

  • How's the lollipop experience been on the T-Mob G2? My partner has one, and I've advised him not to take the upgrade (once it's offered) until I've checked out whether it's stable enough. I have a Nexus 4 on T-Mobile, and 5.0 was pretty buggy and slow. It's on 5.1 now, and that's fixed much of the slowness, but I'm still experiencing bugs. At least several times a week, after I've turned off the display, it won't come back on without a forced reboot. That also happened on 5.01 (perhaps a little more often). It's never just shut down while I was using it (well, actually, today, the 'System UI' task stopped, freezing everything - but that's a first), so the bug must be something pretty specific. In any case, I'm still holding out hope that 5.1.1 will be the great Lollipop release I've been waiting for. Still, if that's the state of things for the N4, how am I to think 5.0 on the G2 will be worth it? Anyone know if the G2 is going to get 5.1.1?

  • I have been running custom lollipop since December

    Is there any news about whether the LG G3S (AKA "G3 Mini", "G3 Beat") will get the Lollipop update or not?

    i wanna know when lg g2 mini will get lollipop?

  • If you actually watched closely, you would know why he has this update. When scrolling through his apps, on the very last page, you might have noticed an app called SuperSU. This app is used with rooted devices only. So all he has done is installed a custom ROM (probably from xda-developers) and thus making it seem like he has the new software.

      Maybe he rooted the 5.0 stock? O.o there actually is a 5.0 KDZ file for the korean LG G2 variant he is using.
