LG G Flex on AT&T scheduled for Android 4.4.2 KitKat update on Thursday
According to AT&T's support website, the carrier will be pushing out Android 4.4.2 for the LG G Flex starting on Thursday. The device with the curved screen and the self-healing back, will be the recipient of a massive 686MB OTA update. The update brings a new full-screen "immersive" mode, restyled navigation and status bars, enhanced processing speed, and improved battery life.

AT&T suggests that you back up your data prior to downloading the update, even though it should have no effect on your personal content. The carrier also expects you to use a  Wi-Fi network when updating your LG G Flex. And you probably should also have your battery recharged to at least 50%.

The update won't hit every AT&T customer with the LG G Flex on Thursday. These updates are sent out in waves, so if you don't get it tomorrow, you will get it soon. You can also try to coax the update out of your phone manually by going to Settings > General tab > About phone > Software update > Update now.

LG QuickRemote has a very large of vendors and appliances you can use the remote for, and if you cant find something or have something special, you can teach it with another remote.
