LG’s current smartphone flagship, the LG G2, was finally treated with Android 4.4.2 KitKat in Asia. The update is for the D802 model, which is also sold across Europe. That means that LG is close to updating the European variants of the G2, since they are the only ones left without the update.
The new firmware brings a great number of improvements, the most notable being the fresh Android release, which by itself comes with a few sweet goodies, including immersive mode, OpenGL 3.0 support, UI enhancements, etc. On top of that, LG managed to boost the performance of its already speedy device by 17%, which, believe it or not, makes a difference in real-world usage. Other than that, there comes cloud printing, ART support and, as we said before, the new KitKat look in the menus, as well as some new LG wallpapers that were included in the LG G Pro 2.
LG’s OTA update weighs 537.11MB, but if you decide to download it using LG’s mobile update tool, its size should be around 1.6GB. As a G2 user myself, I can’t wait to try it on my device. I’m in Europe, so I’ll have to wait a little bit longer. But you, Asian users, shouldn’t hesitate a bit to upgrade your device to the latest LG and Google have to offer!
