Report: Only 5% of Korean LG G2 owners received KitKat update

Report: Only 5% of Korean LG G2 owners received KitKat update
A report out of Korea on Tuesday, states that the Android 4.4 update that LG sent out in Korea for the LG G2 was just a "sampling update". Additionally, the report says that only 5% of  LG G2 owners in the country received the update. If the report is true, LG conducted something similar to the soak test that Motorola uses to test software updates in the U.S. The only difference seems to be that with Motorola, participants volunteer to take part in the test.

The report claims that LG tested the sample and found no bugs, giving them the green light to go ahead and update the 95% of LG G2 units that did not receive the new OS build the first time it was sent out. Yet, we are told that some LG G2 owners in Korea, whose phones were updated to Android 4.4, are complaining about problems with the battery and the browser on their devices. The Android 4.4 update is now set to be released in Korea to all owners of LG's Android flagship sometime next week.
