Android 5.0 starts rolling out to Sprint's LG G3
Sprint subscribers with the LG G3 will be happy to learn that the current LG flagship is in the process of receiving Android 5.0 via an OTA update. According to the carrier, the update includes the Lollipop Material Design, Project Volta for improved battery life, Android TV support, new lock screen notifications, the new "Recent Apps" menu, and improvements that allow low-vision and color blind users to use the phone.

Other new features include an integrated location menu to easily activate GPS, Wi-Fi and mobile networks, enhanced Google Hangouts messaging featuring a larger number of updated emoji, and upgraded Google Mobile Service apps that automatically backup photos and videos.

Since the update is being sent out in waves, if you don't receive it today or tomorrow there is no reason to run down to your nearest Sprint store like a madman. The update will come! And due to its size, when it does arrive your best bet is to connect to a Wi-Fi network before starting the downloading and installing process. And yes, your battery should be at least 50% charged.

The updates from KitKat to Lollipop on skinned devices like this are very, very overrated. In many cases, performance and even features suffer after updating. The majority of users won't care about the changes one way or another. Apps, email, texting, Snapchat, etc. all work the same regardless. I don't know why these updates are always lauded as the greatest thing ever, like you're getting a completely new phone! Nonsense.
