LG has been doing great in the smartphone world as far as rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its devices is concerned.
While a number of smartphones including the LG G4 and LG G3 have already received this operating system, those using the phablet LG V10 on AT&T were still in the dark. Interestingly, those using this device from last year on both T-Mobile and Verizon have nothing to complain about as the carriers have already rolled out the Marshmallow update to this gadget.
In essence, the LG V10 Android 6.0 Marshmallow update is already available internationally, but it is only now that the same is coming to AT&T. At the time of this writing, the Marshmallow update on AT&T’s V10 is already rolling out. Of course, this OS upgrade is coming in as an over the air update. As a result, not all users of the device on AT&T will be able to receive this update on the same day. So, in case you haven’t received the notification to download and install the OS, keep calm as it will soon hit your device.
If waiting isn’t your thing, there is another way out. You can go to the phone’s Settings and under the About phone option, you can check out whether system updates are ready for your device.
Unlike many other OEMs which have been pushing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow to their devices, LG has managed to keep the size of the update down to 1GB. Still, you are advised to stick to a Wi-Fi connection when downloading the update to your LG V10. Also, make sure that your phone is fully charged or is connected to a power source during the entire process of updating.
Once you have downloaded the software update, go ahead and install it on your device. Upon completion, you will be able to enjoy new Android Marshmallow features on your LG V10, among them Doze mode for better battery management, Google Now on Tap, App Standby as well as an enhanced apps permissions system. As usual, you can also expect error and bug fixes to accompany the new update alongside the traditional improvements associated with software upgrades.
Have you updated your LG V10 software to the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow?
