LG G2 KitKat update rolling out to Rogers and Bell customers in Canada

by: Andrew GrushMarch 26, 2014


While Android 4.4 KitKat has already been making the rounds to various carrier versions of the LG G2 in the United States, it appears that it’s Canada’s turn now. Thanks to a report from MobileSyrup, we’ve learned that both Bell and Rogers customers are now getting in on the update.

So what’s new here? Like Android 4.4 updates we’ve seen for other devices from Samsung and Motorola, there’s not much new other than the features that come with KitKat such as a new fullscreen ‘immersive’ mode for supported apps and SMS integration — just to name a few things. You can also expect improvements to the phone’s battery life, minor speed improvements, and cloud printing via the Google Cloud Printer.

Keep in mind that this is a sizable update at 635.99MB, so you’re going to want to be on a Wi-Fi connection. It’s also important to note that this is a staged rollout, so it may take a few days or more to reach all users. If you’ve yet to receive a notification prompting you to update, you can always check manually by going to Settings>About Phone>Update Center>Software Update.

Have you received the update to KitKat for your G2 yet? If so, what do you think so far? Any other carrier or device specific changes worth noting?

    No Kitkat update for G2 on Wind Mobile.

      I emailed Wind about this a week ago…. And they never replied. I really hope they let us know what the plan is.

      • Josh Levent

        They replied to me on Facebook. Stating that they had no time frame and that we can only check if it is available on our devices.

        Knowing Wind they’re slow on the update. Expect it to come within a week.

    Its size won’t be for everyone, and we do wish LG would take a closer look at the audio side of things, but there’s no denying that its high-res capabilities, mixed in with a stunning video performance, great design and superb user experience make it a very tempting choice.
