Ah yes, the LG G3.
I personally had this phone for quite a while. It was a wonderful device, with the first 1440p screen on the market, and had an absolutely fantastic screen to bezel ratio. I personally didn’t like LG’s proprietary skin they threw on top of the device, but with a drop of Cyanogenmod, this thing was a dream. I eventually heard the call of the Nexus line and transitioned over, but I will always keep my trusty G3 as a backup in case things go awry. Now that my personal memoirs are all out of the way, lets get to the news.
Today, Verizon began rolling out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to the LG G3. It’s pretty fantastic that they are still supporting this device, as it is almost 2.5 generations old at this point, sitting behind the upcoming LG G5 and the (what should have been the LG G4) LG V10. While HTC may be the king of fast updates, it looks like LG is going to be fighting for the title of longest supported devices.
If you’re not versed in the updates present in Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the list is long and wonderful, and includes new animations and design, the DOZE battery saving functions, security improvements, and much, much more.
If you have a G3 or are looking for a cheap phone for any which reason, definitely give this device a look, as they are going for just over $100 at the time of writing.
