Android 4.4.2 KitKat rolling out for Sprint LG G2 Owners

    After landing on T-Mobile and AT&T’s network, the LG G2 KitKat update is now on its way over to Sprint as well! For those keeping score, that means Verizon is currently the only major U.S. carrier not to introduce a KitKat update for the handset. The new software is listed as version ZVB and is expected to start pushing out today, though as always it may take a few days to reach everyone.

    So what’s new here? Very little actually, other than than the improvements you’d expect from Android 4.4 KitKat. Judging by what we’ve seen from T-Mobile and AT&T, there is bound to be a few other minor user improvements and bug fixes. Sprint also mentions that their version of the update specifically addresses a problem with a Next Radio audio issue.

    So far, just about every KitKat update we’ve seen has been pretty void of carrier/manufacturer add-ons, which isn’t a bad thing, especially since KitKat brings plenty of goodies such as Google Cloud printing, immersive mode support and much more. It’s unclear if the update has actually started arriving to any users just yet, though you can always check manually by heading to Settings> System updates> Update LG software> Check now. 

    So how about it, anyone get the update yet? If so, did you notice any of major changes worth mentioning?

      What about Verizon??????

        Verizon is always last. They are currently testing it which means we should see Kit Kat in a couple of months.

          Just in time for the G3.

      Kit kat had a major problem if you use a micro sd chip to store content such as photos or music.

      Kit kat attempted to solve a security problem, and in the process broke quite a few popular apps. For example, it is no longer possible to have two camera apps that both save their photos in the same place on your micro sd chip. Our even a single place to have your camera save your photo that will be shared with a photo editing app.

      Given I have a Note 3 with a 64 go micros chip, this is a problem.

      Yea, I’m a T-Mobile customer and received the upgrade last week. I’ve noticed a few things but the thing I’ve noticed more than anything is my battery doesn’t last as nearly long as before. For example I had a full charge this morning before I left for work (45 bus ride) and I my phone had lost half the charge before I got to work. As before my Note 3 would last all day with reasonable usage.

      Don’t do it. I updated my phone several days ago and now I’m trying to figure out how to roll back. Data speeds are slow; it’s like using dialup waiting for pictures to load and videos never do. Camera is so slow I can barely use it. It can only take a decent picture if everything stays perfectly still for 3-5 seconds. There seems to be some sort of constant data transferring. They reordered the “Share to” list but still don’t let you customize it to hide the ones you never use. My battery is not lasting through the day anymore. I was never happier with a phone before the update. Lesson learned. I won’t be updating again when I’m happy with my phone’s performance. I did try to briefly check for any potential problems before I updated and didn’t find much but now I wish I had dug deeper since I already see promises of 4.4.3 ‘fixing’ the camera. We shouldn’t have to wait for the next version to fix what they just broke!
