When Google released the Marshmallow source code, many manufacturers were quick to jump on the news and start announcing updates to their flagships. In mid-October, LG started rolling out the android OTA in Poland first as a test, with promises to expand to other countries and operators later.
Now that update is ready for the US and Sprint is the first operator to get it. On its support page for the device, Sprint says the update was available yesterday, December 17th. It's rolling out as software version LS991ZV9 with Marshmallow and Sprint Global Roaming. There'll be a lot waiting for you when you jump from Lollipop 5.1 to Marshmallow 6.0, including app permissions, the new floating text selection toolbar with options to expand it through Google Translate or Wikipedia, better external storage integration that should be handy with the G4's MicroSD slot, and so much more.

It's the season for steep discounts, and Amazon is doing its part by listing the LG Watch Urbane for a mere $200, but you have to act fast. This is a Lightning Deal, so it's gone in a few hours or when supplies run out. Read More
The LG Watch Urbane is easily one of the most premium Android Wear devices around, as the accessory started out at $349.99 for the cheapest model back when it first launched. Fortunately, you don't have to pay nearly that much right now.
Over on Rakuten, you can get the silver version with a black band for only $199.99.
This number comes following a price drop to $224.99. To get it down to the aforementioned rate, there's also a $25 instant coupon that shows up when you go to checkout. This is the lowest price we've seen the LG Watch Urbane hit yet. Read More
Google is getting into the annual celebration of the American consumer, known as Black Friday, with a plethora of deep discounts. I'd love to apply my normal flair and lame jokes to this article, but this is Black Friday and I ain't got no time for that!
So here's the breakdown.
LG would probably like to sell you a G4 right now, but the G3 is still a perfectly nice phone. Today you can pick one up on eBay for the downright reasonable price of $279.99. This is a new unlocked phone that should work on any GSM/LTE network in North America. Read More
If you're an LG G4 owner on Verizon, you may have heard about all the drama surrounding the phone's "touchscreen fix update" that has since rolled out on every other US carrier. Back on October 9, Big Red began rolling out this OTA as firmware VS98612A, but it was pulled two days later due to a major bug affecting the device's ability to receive push notifications while connected to Wi-Fi. A month-and-a-half later, Verizon and LG seem to have gotten their stuff together, and have now released a new OTA which shouldn't have the same problems that the original 12A update had. In addition to the long-awaited touchscreen fixes, people are also reporting that this update includes a new slow motion option in the camera app, and unlinks the ringer, notification, and system volumes a-la the LG G3.

Black Friday is coming this Thursday, and Verizon has a number of deals aimed at enticing people in the market for a new phone. One is a $100 discount on phones priced at $400 or higher, which we've seen advertised alongside the LG V10.
Now LG has an offer that sweetens the arrangement further. Read More
Some people reserve all of their big tech purchases for Black Friday, and Sprint has a plan to get some of their dollars. For starters, the carrier will give away a year of Amazon Prime with the purchase of a Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, or Note 5. Read More
Black Friday, or Black Thursday Evening, is only several days away. You're probably not thinking of making the Verizon store your first destination, but the Big Red wants your money just like everyone else. If you find prices particularly off putting throughout the rest of the year, this may be the one time to pay the carrier's site and retail stores a visit. Read More
