T-Mobile customers were blessed with a couple good affordable options in June – the LG G Stylo and LG Leon. These have proven to be good affordable gadgets for the casual user, and things are getting even better. T-Mobile has announced both the G Stylo and the Leon are currently getting updated to Android 5.1.1.
The OTA update comes with everything Android 5.1.1 entails. It won’t be such a drastic change compared to Android 5.0, which is the software version both devices launched with. T-Mobile does mention “this mandatory update improves battery life (for WiFi calling) and display.”
These updates bring the LG G Stylo up to version H63110e, while the LG Leon is taken to version H34510e. Both are available to download now as long as you have a WiFi connection, at least 50% battery life and available memory (428.6 MB for the Stylo and 316.2 MB for the Leon).
Otherwise, the procedure is pretty standard. Just head over to the About Phone section in your Settings app and check for an update. By the way, these updates will become available for download over the T-Mobile cellular network starting July 9th and July 10th, just in case you feel like using up all them megabytes!
I personally love how LG tends to keep even its lower-end devices in check when it comes to software updates. Most manufacturers release these budget phones and never really support them afterwards. Go ahead and check if your phone is already getting its sweet Lollipop update! Have you installed it yet? How is it treating you? Let us know in the comments below!
