AT&T's LG G4 nets several improvements following OTA update
AT&T's version of the LG G4 is getting a big make over thanks to an update being sent out to the phone OTA. According to the changelist posted by the carrier, the 420MB file contains Calendar enhancements, Battery improvements, Keyboard enhancements, LG Backup, Camera enhancements, GPS enhancements, Exchange Active Sync enhancements, Touch improvement and Security enhancements.

Before you start the process of updating your phone, you should make sure that you are on a Wi-Fi connection. In addition, your battery should be charged to at least 50%. Keep in mind that because the update is being sent out on a staggered basis, not everyone will receive it at the same time. You might have to wait several days for it to hit your handset. You can try to manually pull it out by going to Settings > About phone > Software updates.

With all of the improvements and enhancements coming with the update, your AT&T branded LG G4 is going to feel like a new phone. Feel free to let us know what changes you've experienced after installing the update, by commenting in the box below.

I forgot this thing doesn't even have a fingerprint scanner. You can't even get one at Sprint now because they recalled it. That and it's horrible battery life should keep it on the shelf.

This is great to hear. LG G4 didn't do as well as they hoped but it's still an amazing phone especially when you consider how much cheaper it is compared to other flagship phones.

The At&t LG G4 isn't the only LG phone getting updates. This morning I was able to download an update for my LG G3 on Verizon. The update bumped my OS to Android 5.1.1.

No fingerprint scanner made the G4 DEAD ON ARRIVAL. The LGv10 is the choice and the best phone of 2015. Who are the mods that suspended my account for posting "phones equal sign FAILl"? What rules did I break? You are a disgrace and should be ashamed.

You're post is irrelevant. Some of the best phones (even new ones) don't have a fingerprint scanner. Just because it doesn't meet YOUR expectations, doesn't mean it's not a great phone.

WRONG, stupid. Now that fingerprint scanning is integrated into Android Marshmallow, fingerprint scanners are a necessity. That's why ALL of the best phones of 2015 have them.

To be fair, you're both right. Some of the best phones do NOT have fingerprint scanners (Moto X Pure and the G4). And yeah, marshmallow has native support for fingerprint sensors for securing the device as well as for android pay. So it would seem to be necessary going forward. So, yeah...I was kinda surprised the G4 didn't have a fingerprint scanner when it was released. And I wasn't a fan of knock code which worked 50 per cent of the time for me. That being said, the G4 (and the Moto X Pure for that matter) are excellent phones that lack a fingerprint scanner. There are many others I would consider.

Just because you want fingerprint security doesnt mean everyone else does. Plenty of G4 users are fine without it. Note 5 has one of the best fingerprint sensors, and I never use it. What made the G4 DOA was the battery life, screen color accuracy, and the camera.

Did you just cite the G4 camera as causing it to be DOA? What you smokin', G. That some next level merchandise you got there.

Your childish post just proves my point that you have no clue what you are talking about. But then again, trolls never do.

Your v10 will not even have marshmallow to 2016, now that a fail for a new new phone

No doubt you posted this when this excellent phone was launched. Now, I am no expert but I am going to assume that an update is NOT going to bring the fingerprint scanner you crave.

iris scanners made any phone with a fingerprint scanner dead on arrival. Hear how stupid that sounds? Now go rethink your post.
