Verizon LG G3 receives another Lollipop update to fix bugs
The Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Verizon LG G3 earlier in the year was apparently plagued with technical issues and bugs, but a new update has just been release that should fix at least some of these problems.
The update is labelled version VS98524B, or simply 24B. The changelog states that the update introduces a few new features, including a Bluetooth button to the in-call screen. The Lollipop Interrupt feature from has also been implemented and notifications can now be set to completely off, Priority mode for messages and events, or all be allowed to sound. This option can be found under the Quick Settings menu.
Finally, Advanced Calling settings have been implemented, which allows for HD Voice and Video Calling. LTE Video Calling will also be automatically disabled if the customer isn’t subscribed to the service.
The original Lollipop update for the Verizon LG G3 caused some users to experience excessive battery drain, Wi-Fi stability issues and even random reboots. Oddly, there isn’t a list of any bug fixes included with the changelog, so it’s not clear exactly which of the issues have been addressed. The update unfortunately doesn’t bring the G3 up to the latest version of Android 5.1 Lollipop either.
The update should be rolling out to customers as we speak and will be making its way to handsets throughout the week. Keep an eye out for that OTA notification or check out www.vzw.com/lgg3update for instructions on how to download the update manually.
