Gone are the days when LG phones took ages to get updated to the newest version of Android. The 6.0 Marshmallow treat it seems will be reaching the G4 flagship earlier than any other third-party smartphone. Even the Lollipop update hadn’t wasted any time in reaching the company’s 2014 flagship.
LG used to be severely criticized back in day for being late in delivering Android updates, but with its quick Lollipop and Marshmallow releases it has shown its hard commitment towards improving that flaw. It has announced through a press release that G4 models in Poland will be the first ones to receive the Android 6.0 release next week.
Following that, the software will start making its way into devices in Europe, Asia and the Americas. LG is still to announce the names of the other models which will be receiving the new 6.0 Marshmallow build though.
The new Android software on the G4 will bring with it granular permissions that can be used for dictating which apps can access what part of your phone. Do Not Disturb had not made its way into the Lollipop builds of the company’s OS; so it has been incorporated into the Marshmallow version now. Lastly, Doze is another highlight-worthy trait from this update, which manages background apps better in order to increase battery life.
LG has jumped competition by quite a leap in offering the Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS to its flagship device, the G4. The official build from Google was outed not more than 10 days ago. Even Motorola, which is usually ahead of competition each time, is still to begin its soak tests for this update.
