LG Optimus G Android KitKat Update
H! readers, now after along break LG started to roll-out Android KitKat updates for LG Optimus G ((Model E975)) handsets, the Optimus G has been stuck on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. LG skipped 4..2 and 4.3 updates and rolling out 4.4 update straightly.

LG Optimus G roll-out Android KitKat update in India

As the news has been revealed by digipassion, most of the country started getting updates and finally reached to India. Android KitKat v4.4.2 is available as a system software update for LG Optimus G – you can get it either OTA (Over-The-Air via phone’s Software Update app) or via LG Mobile Support Tool (a desktop software). OTA update is sized at just over 500MB, (size may be variable according to the phone model and country, available as an upgrade over the current firmware) while LG Support tool will download the whole firmware afresh (about 1GB) and then flash the phone with it. So it is recommended to update OTA. LG’s update servers are pathetic to say the least – if the download is interrupted due to any reason (at any stage), it will not resume from the last position rather it will start over resulting in huge data transfers and frustration.

  • As for the change-log and new features in KitKat for Optimus G, here is what we have noticed
  • All the essential goodies of Android KitKat v4.4.2 plus
  • Some apps like Music, Notebook, Safety Care, Q Translator, On-Screen Phone, and File Manager have been updated
  • File Manager interface has been revamped and now it looks similar to the one in LG G2
  • New Music app can be connected to LG G watch
  • Dialer design changed from a “flattish” style to a 3D buttons type
  • Keyboard has also been given a 3D style with much improved functionality
  • Notification area has been given a more modern look (all icons at the top status bar are white now)
  • A Car Home app has been added to assist while driving
  • Weather app has been redesigned with new themes
  • A Multi-photo section has been added under “Wallpapers” section at home-screen by which you can select two or more pics together to set as wallpaper
  • Software update and App Updates apps have been merged into a single app called “Update Center”
  • Some icons have been re-designed
  • System icons and UI has been given a more modern look and feel like that of LG G2
  • RAM and battery management has been improved considerably
  • Missing features – Themes have been removed (earlier there were 4 themes), similarly apps wallpapers (background of the apps menu drawer) have been limited to 4
  • Unfortunately LG has not added the much awaited “Knock code” or “Double Tap to unlock” function with this update. May be they will roll out these as a separate update in the near future
Thanks digipassion for the words
