Many LG fans in the United States are having a roll since a number of LG smartphones have recently received the Android 6.0 update.
The LG V10 and the LG G Vista 2 are two of the devices that have received the update. Specifically, LG V10 H900 variants and G Vista 2 H740 variants that are on AT&T will receive the Marshmallow update, which has the build number MRA58K. Aside from delivering Android 6.0 to its users, AT&T’s update release will allow LG V10 H900 and G Vista 2 H740 owners to enjoy exciting features such as video calling and advanced messaging.
The LG Class smartphone — popularly known as LG Zero — is also starting to receive the Marshmallow update. The rollout is happening in South Korea, although there’s a high chance that it would spread to other regions soon. Android 6.0 allows Class/Zero users to better manage their Google settings and have more control over their phone’s brightness, reminders, and notification settings. It also helps them extend their phone’s battery life by restricting data consumption of background apps when the phone is on standby.
Those who own the HTC models mentioned above will get a notification telling them they can now download the Android 6.0 update. If they don’t receive the notification, they can go to “Settings”, tap on “General”, then tap “About Phone” to see if they have the latest version of the Android OS. If they don’t, they can tap on “Update Center”, choose “Software Update”, then tap Update Now to manually download the update. It’s important to note that the Android 6.0 update is usually more than 1GB in size, so HTC smartphone users must first check if they have enough space in their phones.
Those who can’t wait for the Marshmallow update to reach their phone can upgrade to newer HTC phones that are built to run on Android 6.0. One of these is the LG G5, which was just released this month and runs on Android 6.0.1. It comes with a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 820 processor, 4 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, a 16MP camera, and a 5.3-inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen. Another choice is the LG G5 SE which, according to rumors, would be released only in Russia but may also be offered in other countries and regions. The G5 SE has similar features to the LG G5, including the built-in Android Marshmallow OS, but is different in that it has a smaller 3GB RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor.
