LG G2 KitKat update Android 4.4.2 has not only reached to the international variants, but has already been made available to US carriers as well as to the Canadian carriers. All but except Verizon. Here are a few things which you can expect from the KitKat update when it ultimately arrives for the Verizon LG G2.
Verizon might be known for many qualities, but delivering timely updates is certainly not one of them. AT&T and T-Mobile LG G2 variants have already got their share of KitKat goodness which means that Verizon has now officially become the last US carrier to jump on the Android 4.4.2 train. Whenever criticized for its late delivery of updates, the big red has always replied back with the same good old excuse of how their update testing methods are a lot stricter than the average carrier and how they need more time in order to deliver a bug free update. However, as we all know, this is basically them trying to sugar coat that they need more time to implement their bloatware on the phone’s (LG G2 in this case) firmware.
So in other words, it should be considered a general rule of thumb that the longer Verizon takes before rolling out an update, the more bloatware it is going to stuff in. To put it more simply, Verizon LG G2 users should probably get prepared to see a lot of new icons on their app drawer.
As far as the details regarding this update are concerned, the 4.4.2 KitKat update which AT&T LG G2 users got weighed in at 635 MB and that apart from general KitKat features like cloud printing, this update will also have minor performance improvements along with an immersive mode which allows the users to use the handset in full screen mode.
As for the rollout date, since there has been no official word from the big red, everything is still either an educated guess or a baseless rumour. However, for what it is worth, many experts think that the Verizon LG G2 KitKat update will get delivered within a month’s of time even by the latest.
