LG G2 Android 4.4 KitKat Update Continues in the US, Verizon MIA

The LG G2 Android 4.4.2 KitKat update in the United States is continuing forward today, with a 3rd carrier finally confirming the latest version of Android is headed to the popular handset.

While most the attention lately has been on the upcoming LG G3, the company hasn’t forgot its flagship smartphone from last year and is busy delivering the latest version of Android 4.4.2 KitKat to all users. After initially setting a late March release date LG quickly beat expectations and first delivered the LG G2 KitKat update to AT&T customers back in February, and has been pushing it to all users this month, except for Sprint and Verizon.

After first arriving on AT&T and quickly T-Mobile, Sprint confirmed that as of today the LG G2 Android 4.4 KitKat update should be arriving for all users. No other details were mentioned, nor a changelog of what to expect, but the software and features are identical as other carriers, such as AT&T.

Sprint confirmed that starting this afternoon LG G2 owners can be on the lookout for Android 4.4.2 KitKat, but that it will be released in stages and may take several days to be delivered to your handset. Here’s a quick video provided by LG of the improved performance all users can expect to enjoy after the update to KitKat.

Last week the LG G2 Android 4.4 KitKat update rolled out in Canada for three major carriers, beating both Sprint and Verizon in the United States. While the news arriving today is good for those on Sprint, we’re still left with zero details for those on Verizon Wireless.

As usual owners can head to Settings > About Phone > Updates and check now to try and receive the latest right away. Otherwise expect Android 4.4 KitKat to arrive on your LG G2 over the course of the next 3-5 days, or by the end of the week.

    typical Verizon, holding up an android update to fill it with their bloatware. f u Verizon I’m on my way over to tmobile since they’re paying my early termination fees.

      Enjoy the shitty coverage, horrible customer service and data optimization, sure you’re waiting on an update, uninstall updates, disable background data, sure it consumes a fraction of your storage but the bloatware is manageable, switching to t mobile from Verizon is like going from a full powered surround sound system to a mono stereo walk man, not only the fact that you have to trade in your current device, and buy a new one from them at full retail, good luck

    Verizon simply doesn’t think the average consumer cares about updates. Hopefully the average consumer will prove them wrong and go elsewhere next time . . .

  3. vzw like no update says

    I was told by Roberta puklala,a vzw rep, after emailing the NYC metro area rep, that kit kat was not made available to Verizon, that lg is holding the update, and it’s up to lg. she also said Verizon would love to release kit kat to customers but they have no idea when it will be made available by lg.

    awesome
