Android 4.4 KitKat update for LG G Flex on Sprint begins rollout

Android 4.4 KitKat update for LG G Flex on Sprint begins rollout
The LG G Flex is a special phone, in more ways than one. Is it perfect, no, but it leads the way toward what we think will become an important segment in the mobile device industry.

Because the G Flex is unique with its flexible chassis, and self-healing back plate, the device does come with a premium. Two-year subsidized prices on AT&T and Sprint are $299 and $249 respectively, more than what one might expect for a device pushing a 6-inch 720p display.

The trade off is snappy performance as the hardware has no trouble rendering what needs to be done either through web-browsing, watching videos, or providing access to the numerous features built into LG’s Optimus UI.

Sprint announced today that the Android 4.4 update is now available for its G Flex devices. The update includes a number of feature enhancements, not the least of which is the Knock Code. Also, users should expect support for a battery-saving location mode, and support for Google Cloud Printer.

As we have seen with other devices updated to KitKat, overall performance should be improved with faster execution to run programs, and a quicker web-browsing experience. The update is being pushed in phases, keep a look-out for Android build LS995ZV6.
