Verizon LG G2 Android KitKat 4.4.2 Update Explored
Running on Verizon and available since September 12 of last year, the bestselling LG G2 delivers arguably one of the most versatile and powerful hardware packages of any smartphone. And now the Verizon LG G2 supports the new Android KitKat 4.4.2 operating system update, which delivers the updated Auto Brightness option to the handset. Across-the-board user experience improvements benefit you once you download the new software, and it is recommended you have at least 50% battery life before following through with the over the air transfer.
The phone was recently spotted running on Verizon at a discounted price in the Amazon Wireless store online, and if you have not yet downloaded this upgrade, follow these steps. From your home screen tap Settings then More. Choose About Device and Software Update and then tap OK to check for the available install and update your files. You should also have at least 147 MB of free memory for successful installation onto your Verizon LG G2.
The official changelogs for the LG G2 show a new lock screen access and media controls, including full-screen album art. You can now also access your camera through a shortcut provided on the lock screen and can set your preferred default application for sending and receiving SMS text messages. Android KitKat 4.4.2 on the Verizon LG G2 also delivers restyled navigation and status bars. Expanded and additional Emoji Icons are supported, as is wireless printing through both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity options.
And if annoying mobile pop-up messages frustrate you, the Prevention Information feature blocks these unwanted interruptions. Also, although the onboard 3,000 mA battery provides a generous 18.2 hours of run time after a full charge, the new software upgrade includes improved battery efficiency and faster processing speed. This allows the Snapdragon 800 processor to run at speeds of up to 2.3 GHz. The LG G2 is one of the most dedicated smartphones concerning delivering quality audio and supports 24 bit 192 kHz Hi-Fi playback that reproduces studio-like quality sound.
Designed with a slim form factor that measures just 8.9 mm (0.35 inches) in thickness, the Verizon LG G2 offers a large 5.2 inch Full HD IPS LCD screen with a resolution of 1,080 x 1,920 pixels. 2.0 GB of RAM memory is offered, as is 32 GB of built-in data storage space. The rear-facing 13.0 megapixel snapper delivers simultaneous video and image recording in high definition and is capable of 1,080P HD resolution video recording. Also on board is a front facing chat cam, as well as an FM Stereo radio with RDS display functionality.
