While the LG G3 was one of the first non-Nexus devices to start pushing out an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop, the arrival of the latest sweet treat was limited primarily to Europe and parts of Asia. A few weeks ago, LG hinted that the US Lollipop update would be coming to the G3 “soon”. Apparently, “soon” has arrived. Beating out the anticipated arrival of the update to Sprint’s network, AT&T has now launched the Android Lollipop update for the LG G3 on its network. The version being pushed out is 5.0.1, and comes in at a size of 689.53 MB.
As for what’s new? Like the international Lollipop update, all the under-the-hood changes found in Lollipop are present but many of the cosmetic (Material Design) changes are less noticeable due to LG’s custom skin. That means you can expect ART and other changes that come with Lollipop, but you won’t necessarily be in for the same massive visual updates that folks with a stock Android installation have seen.
The update is live now, though many times these kinds of updates take days or even weeks to reach everyone, so a little patience may be needed here. It’s also worth noting that there are early reports suggesting some users have ran into freezing issues with Google Play services after installing the update, so upgrade at your own risk.
Have you updated to Lollipop on your AT&T LG G3 yet? If so, how did the experience go for you?
