LG G3 Android 5.0 Lollipop update officially "coming soon" to US users

Unfortunately, LG doesn’t provide an exact time frame for the update, but we’re not going to be surprised if some G3 users will get Lollipop starting the coming weeks. Obviously, how fast the update arrives will depend not just on LG, but also on carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular are all offering the G3).
In May this year, the LG G3 will be one year old, and we definitely hope that everyone using it is going to be able to enjoy the Lollipop experience by then. LG’s flagship smartphone from 2013 - the G2 - is also going to receive Android Lollipop, though this will probably happen after the G3 gets the update.

My G3 was better with Kitkat. Battery drains faster and the phone is noticeably slower.

got tired of waiting. Resurrection Rom 5.0.2 already installed on my T-MO G3, as well as my work only S4 (5.0.1 CM12 GPE). But gotta wait for the wife's Note 4. Not taking any chances of bricking that thing, with its locked bootloader.

Knowing update history from both Samsung & LG, I bet that it's safe to say that we'll see the update close to around the time the next flagship will be announced.

My Optimus G was left with one single update in its life span to JB 4.1.2. It's a Nexus 4 at heart, no excuses. My G2 has had one single update in its life span to KK 4.4.2. It's a Nexus 5 at heart, no excuses. Lollipop is coming very late My G3 has had one bug fix having owned the device since launch day in the US last summer. Getting a little tired of your $h!t, LG. Support your devices and maybe you'll gain some more support world wide

Optimus G got updated to 4.4.2. G2 is soon getting lollipop, that use more than many flagships can say. G3 has gotten tons of improvements since the launch. Stop blaming the OEM when it's your carrier that don't care about their customers.
