Sprint's LG G Stylo gets its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

Sprint's LG G Stylo gets its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update
Sprint today started rolling out an official Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for one of its mid-range smartphones: the LG G Stylo. The news comes not long after Sprint updated the high-end LG G4 to the same version of Android.

According to Sprint, it "can take several days" before all owners of the G Stylo are getting the Marshmallow update, so you should be patient if you're not receiving it today.

Released back in June by Sprint, the LG G Stylo currently costs $288 off contract, or $49 with a 2-year contract agreement. The handset is a pretty large one, as it sports a 5.7-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels. Other features include a stylus pen, LTE connectivity, 5 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory. The G Stylo is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, and includes a 3000 mAh battery. To find out more about the handset, check out our LG G Stylo review.

We assume that T-Mobile's LG G Stylo (which has been available since May) will also be updated to Android Marshmallow, though there's no word on when that could happen.

The only mention the sprint version of the lg g stlyo should get is that it was a huge rip off. Tmobile released the same phone with 2 gb of ram making it a good budget device, but sprint releases the same phone with 1 gb of ram making it a laggy, buggy phone that force closes apps

hmmmm didnt notice that....maybe because the CDMA phones are made diff than the GSM....1GB RAM shouldnt even be made even more my first android phone had 1GB RAM and that was like 6 years ago...2GB RAM or more is what u need...3GB RAM on the G3 kicks butt no lags and its fast

When the stylo was launched it was exactly what i was looking for, and in fact i would still buy on boost mobile if it had at least 2gb of ram, so i felt let down by sprint for getting weaker version

sprint doesnt do anything right...they suck in all areas we all know about the bad network along with bad CS but their phone line up stinks too

Cracks me up when people feel the need to dictate what the minimum specs should be for a phone they would never buy. Some people don't need all the bells & whistles or aren't interested in spending much money on a phone. For those folks, 1GB of RAM will do just fine. You're not buying it. Why do you care?

you dont read much do you? in my comment i said that i would buy it if it had 2 gb of ram, i've had the lg volt with the same exact specs 1 gb of ram, same processor and it force closes apps and force closes the keyboard. stylo owners have reported the same thing, this wouldnt happen if the phone had 2 gb of ram. we have more to say about specs than the manufacturers because we actually use the phone longer than them. And even to this day i would buy the stylo if it had 2 gb of ram

No, you don't pay close enough atttention. If you did, you would have noticed that my comment wasn't in response to yours.

I appreciate the suggestion, but my Note 5 serves my needs just fine. Not to mention, I don't mess with garbage Sprint. I just don't feel the need to tell other people what the minimum specs they should be buying are even though I don't buy in that segment. Sorry for being logical.

I had the LG G Stylo. I really liked the phone, but I couldn't have FB, Messenger, and IG. The apps would force close, stop receiving texts, and calls. I had to get rid of it unfortunately.

It's normal. That's why you should avoid phones with 1 GB of RAM

So, a mid-range Android getting the most up to date software, and not my new $1000.00 Samsung? I'm so glad I ditched them for an iPhone.

in my experience with other phones if the sprint version gets updated then soon after the boost version gets its update. you can check boost mobiles website on device help section and it will show what android version is available to the boost phone. if you see the update available on the website but havent received it yet, then you should get it in the near future
