Verizon LG G2 Now Receiving OTA Maintenance Update


A couple of  days ago, I wrote that Verizon had posted the official upgrade documents for an upcoming maintenance update for LG’s G2 on its website, and now tons of reports have emerged confirming that Big Red branded handsets have indeed, already started to receive the update.

The LG G2 is an impressive high-end smartphone, which packs a 5.2-inch true HD-IPS + LCD capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and a 424 PPI pixel density, a Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset powered by four 2.26GHz Krait 400 CPU’s, the latest Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of flash memory, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization and a 3,000 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery.

The full changelog for the upcoming over-the-air update can be viewed below:

  • Video playback quality has been improved when viewing on websites.
  • Dialing 611 will now appear on device screen.
  • TalkBack reds each deleted letter when using Messaging Keyboard.
  • Backup Assistant Plus resumes syncing after completing a voice call.
  • Device lockups have been reduced.
  • Viewdini application has been removed.
  • Verizon Cloud app is now preloaded.
  • Messaging is now supported via QSlide.
  • Voice quality has been improved.
  • Google Security Patch has been added.

If you own a Verizon-branded LG G2 and have not yet received the OTA update, you can head into “Settings,” then “About Device,” and select “Check for Updates” to manually scan for the upgrade. Alternatively, you can wait until you receive a push notification on your handset prompting you to download and install the update when it’s ready for your handset.
