Check out this video of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on LG G3, and download the firmware
LG, it seems, will be beating everybody to the punch, starting to roll out the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for its G3 flagship as soon as this week, which is an amazing achievement in the land of the tiny green robot. Well, while we would have bet that the initial rollout will happen in the homeland, LG actually said that it will be first appearing in Poland, while the video below of a G3 running Lollipop is shot on a unit with a China Unicom card, so things are progressing nicely on more continents, it seems.

The company has a factory in Poland, and the first screenshots from G3 running Android 5.0 were actually made official by the official Polish LG blog, so the Old Continent should be proud. In any case, that same test Android 5.0 Lollipop firmware has leaked out for the F400S model, too, so if you want to give it a go, and are brave at heart, hit the source link, but make sure you watch the video to see what you will be getting. We'd advise that you wait for the official OTA update, though, which shouldn't be far behind.

Same here. I'm not impressed with the colours any of them are using, including Google. HTC should fix that.

What about Samsung's colors? I never thought I would say that, but I actually like their color choices for their Lollipop version.

Also, why is phonearena displaying adverts of chinese dating sites on their webpages? what if I am not looking for "asian singles near me". I live in Hong Kong but still this is unwarranted.

Not me, but i live in UK, so that's why i am probably not getting these ads.

If you have Chrome, it looks at your personal interests for their ads on websites.

(don't know how IE, Firefox and Safari does it though)

Samsung's leaked Lollipop looked more Material than LG's.

In any case we should applaud LG for doing this so quick. My nexus 4 is still waiting for the OTA although they said november 3rd,i understand that they wan't to iron out the bugs but still i think google had more time then usual to get things ready for launch.

Off topic question (sort of). I got a nexus 5 free the other day (for a study) so I'm now using that instead of my lg g2. Problem is I have literally no settings options on the nexus. I'm wondering if they're all like that or if they just stripped the options out of it. I mean you can't personalize this thing at all, compared to the lg g2 which has so many settings it's crazy. There are regular settings and Google settings on the nexus but there's maybe 4 options under each that really don't do crap!

Couple more days, then it should start hitting some of my Nexi.

Kudos to LG for coming up with an update so quickly. That being said, I hope they smooth out the overall feel when they officially get it out, because in the few videos I've seen so far, it's really laggy and stuttery. Also, some things remain strangely unchanged, like the home/back/recent tasks keys, and I hope it's just because of the early build.

Well, I hope they leave it as they are now since those circle, triangle, square icons looks stupid. They are one X short from a lawsuit from Sony. Also putting that "white sheet of paper" behind icons in app drawer looks terrible. I'm glad to see that LG kept transparent styling, at least that is how it looks in these leaked videos. They should at least let users chose if they want Holo nav keys or if they wish to switch to Material Design ones.

All OEM skins looked like crap compared to Holo, but now with Android 5, they look like trash. Will never go near a HTC, Sony, LG or Asus phone until they drop the skins. Won't even go near a samsung even if it did run stock, they are the benchmark of ugly.

Moto is slowly becoming the best Android OEM.

So when exactly is North America going to get the upgrade for the LG G3- there is no date schedule anywhere and it makes me suspicious and a little miffed that I should have kept my HTC M7 since it will probably get upgraded before the LG G3. LG has a long way to go- the phone is great but the company's ability to distribute updates is sub par. Will consider this when I purchase my next phone. Prove me wrong LG before I start eyeballing that HTC M9
