Are these are the only LG phones getting Android 6.0?
We've seen both Motorola and HTC list which of its handsets will receive the Android 6.0 update. In the case of Motorola, it is quite an emotional matter as owners of certain models ended up disappointed to find out that their handsets are forever stuck on Android 5.1.

On LGWorld.com, a website that is run by the manufacturer, it was discovered that you can select a country, in this case the U.S., and are taken to a page where apps and games are listed. You then pick a phone and see which versions of Android are available for each handset. Interestingly, Android 6.0 was listed on two models.

According to LG, Android 6.0, also known as Marshmallow, will be headed to the LG G3 and the LG G4. One model not listed is the LG V10. The recently unveiled multimedia monster will launch with Android 5.1 pre-installed, and will be updated fairly quickly to Android 6.0.

The rest of you still rocking the LG G2, or some other LG model not mentioned, will have to hope that LG expands this list soon.

LG will face impending doom, little to no sales year after year if LG G2 won't receive marshmallow update. when Nexus 5 ironically will surely get it

WTF what about mine G2?

Actually all we (on the G2) have to do is wait for someone to port either the G3 or G4 ROM. Usually it doesn't take more than 2 months as soon as it gets out. It's been like this for quite a while. LONG LIVE THE G2. Still much better than the G3.

So now let's see if my Note 3 will get it? Doubt it will.

Maybe it does. The Note 2 is supposedly getting lollipop in some countries.

It was probably my favorite phone ever aside from the very poor lownlight photos. Definitely a very solid phone to this day though.

My G2 was never the same after lollipop 5.0.x. Battery life was worse, even before the memory leak issues would crop up. Needed a reboot almost daily. I got tired of waiting for 5.1 and ultimately got a new phone. No 6.0 simply confirms I made the right move.

If my Xperia Z gets Android 6.0, then shame on you LG and HTC!

They barely got 5.0 running smooth on the G3. I hope they do more testing before they commit to the change this time.

Barely see the difference between 6 and 5, don't see that as a loss

The changes are under the. marshmallow is better at resource and battery management, These are more important updates compared to the ones which update interface but bring 10 new bugs and run like garbage.

Just saying, its the dark side of iOS too iOS is different, Apple gives you "iOS 9" but without most the new features and each update reduces performance But at least with Apple's way you still get the security updates Google only just started security updates for older device, it seems the Nexus 4 and 7 (2012) are going to get security updates, but we don't know for sure

iPad air and iPhone 5S run like poop on iOS 9.

Worst part about owning an Android, the horrid update relationship. Why don't all the oems just release kernels and other required code library to the romming community, they will take care of the rest. HTC, LG, Sony and the rest should create a standard repository for all their libaries so people like cyanogenmod can just compile the latest Android versions with ease. And release all their phones with unlocked bootloader. Or do what moto does, use stock Android.

I agree. I always put a custom rom on my device (even on the Nexus) and it does rule out certain handsets, since custom rom support is awful for it. Usually it's the manufacturers fault for not releasing the drivers/kernel for the community.

Hmm, I think Sony does that for like 3 years.

I'm sure that Z1 and later will get the update, some mid-range phones as well.

I guess the LG G2 joins the HTC M7 in the doghouse. Both are still capable phones, such a shame.

They just want to force you to buy their newer phones...

Hey man, since you know a thing or two about SoCs. I wanted to ask, do you reckon SD 810 with V 2.1 would be prone to overheating in Nexus 6P ? Since I am not sure what changes Qualcomm has made to SD 810 I am not sure it would hold up under intense load. Also the One Plus 2 with its v2.1 throttles as well. So what's your thought about Sd810 V2.1 ? Thanks in advance.
