New Android 4.4.2 update rolling out for LG G2

The LG G2 hasn't been clean and clear where KitKat updates are concerned either. The G2 flagship has just received a small update to fix a few issues with Google Wallet's Tap & Pay and Google+. Perhaps the fact that both these bugs affect Google products is the reason behind the prompt update?

Somewhere in the middle of all that lies the Galaxy S4, which is hardly an old device, but one that has never felt the deep-seated love like the S3 or the new infatuation of the S5. Still, there's a few accessories out there to spruce the old dog up a little.
