Android 6.0 Marshmallow update reaches more LG G4 owners
posted by Ben R. / Feb 01, 2016, 10:33 AM
Today, Telus users will begin to see the OTA notification, while Rogers will partake from this coming Wednesday, February 3. Bell shouldn't be too far behind, though since the carrier doesn't provide a schedule for its customers to follow, there's no telling exactly when its G4 Marshmallow update will grace users with its presence.
As you're probably aware, Android 6.0 Marshmallow offers a number of useful tweaks. There's improved battery management courtesy of Doze, which places your phone into a deep sleep and thus allows you to dredge every last droplet of juice. There's also contextual search functionality through Google Now on Tap -- a smarter edition of the virtual assistant that will post search results related to what's being viewed on the display at the time.
Has your G4 seen Marshmallow yet? Be sure to let us know how you're getting on via the comments.

This article makes it sound like LG is doing a bad job, when in fact most other flagships doesn´t even have it in any country. If anything, LG is putting the others to shame. In Sweden we are already getting OTA with January security patches.

They are doing a bad job, just like everyone else. It feels like I've had 6.x on my 3 yr old nexus 5 for a year already. Remember updates don't just bring features, but also security. IMO it is unacceptable to take so long to update. I hate to say it but my next phone may have to be an iPhone. At least I'll be able to count on regular updates and support. Samsung, LG, Sony, Motorola etc GET YOUR SH*T TOGETHER!

Security? Have you ever (or known anyone) that has been a victim of any Android exploit in the past or present? Also, Samsung, LG, Sony and Motorola do not make their own operating system for their phones. They rely on a third party, unlike Apple. That would be like blaming Dell for being so slow to upgrade Windows 8 to Windows 10 on your desktop.

Security? = Yes. Are you implying that security doesn't matter? Are you implying security is good enough? If I (or someone I know) has never been a victim of an exploit does it mean they don't exist or that I should not worry about them? I'm not sure what your point is, but it sure doesn't seem to be an educated one.

Wow, threatening to switch to an iPhone on random internet forums. EVERYONE BACK UP.....we have a real tough guy here. If he doesn't get his update within 3 minutes of its announcement, everyone gets shot.

I've had Marshmallow like 3 weeks after nexus got it I think, then updated 3 times on my G4. There are KDZ to flash, pretty much like how nexus users flash images before they get OTA. If you have a carrier branded phone, well sucks that they own you.

Lucky you that expect to have the update reaching yours G4 soon. Here in Brazil probably it will take like a year to come. I am not a Apple fan but they can reach a worldwide update in truly minor time. I think Google should make something about that. Hoping that all soon receive...

I installed this update yesterday and now my phone screen won't turn on, either by pressing the power button not by tapping the screen. The only way to wake the screen is to plug it in to a charger. Even if someone calls the screen won't wake to give you the option to answer or see who is calling. Phone worked perfectly before the update and now I have to carry a,pocket charger with me just to turn the screen on. Extremely disappointed and wish I had never updated.

@JD2015 I upgraded and within two days it turned my phone into a paper weight. It wouldn't go further than and LG logo. I went to Verizon and they ordered a new one for me and i've sent the paper weight back.
