g3

Speaking of LG, if you own an LG G3 on the Sprint network, look out for an over-the-air update to Android 5.0 Lollipop–the company has announced that the update is being pushed “now.” This follows the same update for the Samsung Galaxy S5 earlier this month.

Lollipop of course gets you the latest Material Design look, together with customizable lockscreen notifications, support for Android TV, location-based switching of comms networks and more. Your photos and videos will also be automatically backed-up to Google, and you should see improved battery-life thanks to more efficient power usage.

If you’ve been eyeing up the G3 but don’t yet have one, Sprint recently added the model to its smartphone leasing program, with the phone available for $15/month with no-upfront payment.
