Sprint LG G3 Now Got Android Lollipop OTA
Sprint has started seeding Android 5.0 to its own LG G3 units. This is definitely good news for eager US users, as Lollipop has been around for the handset in Europe since December last year.

- Material Design for fluid animation, multicolored themes and 3D views
- More efficient battery use
- Android TV support
- Notifications on the lock screen and customizable options with prioritized notifications for events, reminders, messages and calls
- Updated Lock Screen features allow users to quickly access notifications and active apps
- Enhanced low vision and color blind capabilities for added Accessibility
- Integrated location menu enables users to easily activate GPS, Wi-Fi and mobile networks, while simultaneously checking the battery usage of apps running location service capabilities
- Enhanced Messaging with Google Hangouts support for SMS and MMS and a larger assortment of updated Emoji icons
- Upgraded Google Mobile Service apps automatically back up photos and video and can open, view, rename and share Google Docs and files
If you haven’t received the update notification yet, you can always manually make the smartphone check for it by using the relevant part of the Settings menu or read how to update your LG G3.
