LG G3 gets 2G/3G data roaming fixes at T-Mobile, three years after release


Here is what perseverance may mean to some people. It appears that T-Mobile and LG continue to support the G3, the South Korean company's main flagship launched back in June 2014.

Unfortunately, it's not the elusive Android 7.0 Nougat update that many LG G3 owners have expected. Still, it's nice to know that companies like LG continue to support their products even after they become nearly obsolete.

The new Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update software version D85130g is now being pushed to LG G3 units at T-Mobile. As the title says, the update is supposed to bring some 2G/3G data roaming fixes that affect LG's smartphone.

On top of that, the changelog mentions the update adds Google's monthly security patch but fails to say which security update it includes. The LG application has received a fix as well. Last but not least, LG implemented some system stability improvements.

The update is rolled out OTA (over the air) in stages, so it might take up to a week to propagate to all LG G3 units at T-Mobile. Make sure to check your phone though to see if it's available for download.

"Unfortunately, it's not the elusive Android 7.0 Nougat update that many LG G3 owners have expected." I doubt an Android user would expect the latest OS update for a three year old handset... Unless it's smartphone from Google.

They probably run Lineage OS quite nicely -- Android 7.1.2 currently.

I wish LG would go back to this style with the buttons on the back.

Whoever started the buttons on the back had the worst idea ever. I hate the finger scanner on my Nexus 6p. It should always be on the front. Nothing should be on the back except for the camera.
