Verizon's LG G3 starts to receive Android 5.0.1 update

Is that a smile we see on the faces of Verizon subscribers rocking the LG G3? It sure is. This afternoon, Big Red has started rolling out Android 5.0.1 to LG's current flagship handset. The update carries software version number VS98523A and will include the Lollipop Material Design, the new ART compiler making apps run faster, the revised "Recent apps" menu, improved battery life thanks to Project Volta, lock screen notifications and the two-finger slide-down Quick Settings to name a few.

This is a rather hefty update, and while we have not seen Verizon post it on its LG G3 support page yet, you should make sure that you are hooked up to a Wi-Fi network when downloading and installing it. Furthermore, your battery should be charged to at least 50% before you begin the updating process.

You can try to pull Android 5.0.1 out of your phone manually by going to Settings > General > Systems Updates. If you do get the update, let us know by dropping your comments in the box below. Good Luck!

Thanks for the tip!
