AT&T finally rolls out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the LG V10

AT&T finally rolls out Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the LG V10
_
The Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for the international version of the LG V10 first went live during the first half of March. A short while later, Verizon pushed the firmware out to those wielding the V10 on its network, and T-Mobile did likewise earlier this month. Now, AT&T has joined the party, so if your AT&T LG V10 has been waiting on some Marshmallow loving, it'll soon be graced with the presence of Doze, Google Now on Tap and all of the other treats therein. 

Though Marshmallow offers a number of new features, performance tweaks and bug fixes over the preceding Android Lollipop, the wait has been -- and continues to be for many others -- an arduous one. The fact that it's taken AT&T a full month longer than it took Verizon to push Marshmallow to the V10 speaks volumes of unpredictability of Android updates. You can easily be left out in the cold dependent on your device's model number, location or the carrier you opted to sign up to. Nevertheless, we shouldn't balk at progress no matter its form, and if you are a V10 owner on AT&T, you shan't be sitting on your hands for too much longer. 

As you might expect, the update bundle is a large one at over 1 GB in size. Once you've downloaded and let the installation process work its magic, your device will finally be blessed with all of those wonderful little features that Google threw into Marshmallow. 

Though LG's modular G5 has been hogging the recent headlines as far as the Korean company is concerned, it's worth remembering that the V10 is not a bad device at all. The small, secondary display probably hasn't been the revelation that LG had hoped it would be, and as we noted in our LG V10 review, the handset is not without fault. For tech lovers, though, it's got plenty of toys.

I never thought I'd go back to Apple but these slow updates, not to mention the stoppage of updates after two years (or in the case of Samsung, never updated at all, with some products), I think I'm going back. Google has gotten so big, and operators and Android phone makers have become so sloppy, I think I'm almost done. Just waiting for the right iPhone, I guess. This sucks. But you know what? Google still hasn't fixed their Drive data hole after how long? Two years? I had three Docs die completely because of drive yesterday and today. Work docs. Important crap. I wish there were more real options other than android and apple. Both of whom just don't give a fock.

Why so desperate for updates? Did your phone stop working or something? iOS could get updated 100 times, it still wouldn't be capable of all what heavily-skinned OEM devices offer right out of the box. Up till now, despite all the updates it has received, it's still too dumb to do what dumb phones were capable of, including system wide automation, quick-switch profiles for multiple hardware/software components, Bluetooth file/media sharing, central file management, being used as a Flash drive, etc. If you want OS updates just for the sake of OS updates and don't care much about what the updates bring, then sure switch to iOS, or pick up a Nexus device, both would easily accomplish that.

Hopefully this means they'll soon release it for the G3.
