After watching as the last of the LG G2’s received their updates to Android 4.4.2 KitKat last week, it’s now time to finish up work on its cousin, the LG G Flex. After the Korean model saw its KitKat upgrade back towards the end of March, followed closely by AT&T’s version on April 17th, Sprint has announced that they’ve begun rolling out the latest version of Android for their model as well. Sprint’s changelog, doesn’t divulge much, but we have to admit, it gave us a good chuckle. Brace yourselves, it’s a long one:


– OS upgrade to Android 4.4 (Kit Kat)

Alright, since Sprint wasn’t revealing too much about the update, we’ll refer you to AT&T’s changelog which should remain the same for the most part.

  • Updated user interface with Android 4.4 KitKat: The latest version of Android includes enhancements such as restyled status and navigation bars, a new full-screen mode, improved closed captioning support, and stronger security.
  • Improved battery efficiency: The phone plays music more efficiently and supports the battery-saving location mode, extending battery life.
  • Faster processing speed: The latest version of Android provides a noticeable speed boost that runs applications faster than ever and improves web-browsing speed.
  • Printing in the Cloud: Google Cloud Printer makes it simple to print documents via Wi-Fi or a Bluetooth connection.
  • Knock Code ™: Tap a pattern to quickly and securely unlock the phone.

The rollout starts today, and is expected to end May 7th. If you don’t feel like waiting around for your LG G Flex to ping you about the update, you can always manually check for one. If you need help, Sprint’s walkthrough page (complete with GIFs) is a great resource. You can find that here.
