Verizon LG G2 now receiving Lollipop


lg g2 lollipop vzw

A new Lollipop upgrade is rolling in for users of Verizon’s LG G2. It’ll take you to version VS98039A, and aside from the usual Lollipop bits — like improved notification panel and lock screen notifications — it’ll bring about a flat new user interface as featured on the LG G3, as well as new-style Lollipop navigation buttons.

Other new features include searchable settings, an “avoid bad WiFi connection” feature to make sure you don’t connect to WiFi networks that don’t have an internet connection, the ability to “pin” apps to make it so that you can only use that one app until it’s unpinned, rearrangeable navigation buttons, and floating action buttons for the clock, contacts, email, messaging and music apps.

You can check out the full update notes over at AndroidForums.com, but if you’re just interested in getting this bad boy loaded onto your phone simply head to Settings > About Phone and check for the update. Make sure your battery is comfortable charged and that you’re on a WiFi network to make sure things go according to plan.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
