Re: Verizon Marshmallow Incoming Today 2/16 (Possibly)

I have no qualms about updating to this ASAP. If it screws up my phone, I do have plenty of redundant options for comms, but let's hope those aren't necessary. As of 10:55am EST, no update yet.

That's good news! All the major US carriers got the Android OS update to the LG flagship by February. I hope it's a trend that continues, and maybe even gets faster. Verizon G3 owners had to wait until April last year if I recall correctly.

I just picked up my phone and noticed it was 49% done with a 947.1MB VZW system software download. Here's hoping marshmallow doesn't break hangouts on VZW like the last update did.

I delayed the update until later this evening after work when I can get onto WiFi and by then (hopefully) see some feedback for this update. Hope it works out good.

Checked after lunch, update is now downloading. I'm going to do a backup before I update. Will be doing a FDR after installation.

I'm also holding off. After the Wifi problems with the last update I don't feel like being an early adopter this time around.

I'm hoping to hear some general feedback from those that are installing today and see how it goes.

Verizon did it to me again. They keep leaving out features that I really wanted. This time, with MM, they left out the option to merge your memory card into the onboard storage.

Installation went smoothly without any problems.

It took a while to find in settings the "Doze" feature in order to set it to be ignored for certain apps that I always want to run in the background. I found it under "Ignore optimizations" (it isn't called Doze) after pressing on Battery Usage. This feature potentially can lessen battery depletion during longer stretches when your phone is stationary and not being used. It shuts down all unnecessary background programs that waste your battery, , but allows you to override the feature for apps you check off that you want always to run.. I hope this feature works as well with my G4 as it did with my Nexus 7. This feature alone was worth the MM upgrade for my Nexus 7, making a major improvement in battery life during down times.

This is complete BS. They continue to just butcher the OS and take out some of the most useful features.
