LG keeps rolling out Android 4.4.2 KitKat updates to their smartphones and now it’s the time for the Sprint LG G Flex. The update started rolling out today and it will reach users gradually, ending on May 7.
Unfortunately Sprint’s changelog doesn’t offer any information, so we aren’t very sure about what to expect from the update. We know that the LG G Flex’s software will be update to version ZV6 (LS995ZV6 more specifically).
If the update is the same one AT&T users received, then we have an idea about it. It should come with the new Android 4.4.2 KitKat user interface that features new status and navigation bars, along with the new full-screen mode.
The battery should last longer, especially thanks to the new location settings, that allow the user to choose which features should the LG G Flex use to detect its location.
Android 4.4.2 KitKat should also make the LG G Flex faster, as it’s been proved to a much more reliable operating system than its previous versions. We’ve noticed improvements on all smartphones running it, compared to Jelly Bean.
KitKat also comes with Knock Code, which allows the user to unlock the device by tapping a pattern on the screen. And it also brings wireless printing, so you can print by using WiFi or Bluetooth.
If you don’t receive your KitKat update soon, come visit us because we will write a guide to help you update manually. We are currently testing the update ourselves and we will keep you posted while the manual update guide is ready.
