Sprint’s LG G2 Getting KitKat…Today!

March 31, 2014 - Written By Alexander Maxham

I’ve been hearing fellow LG G2 owners on Sprint asking for weeks when their taste of KitKat would arrive via OTA, and it appears that today is the day. Sprint has just announced that the update is now rolling out via OTA to G2 devices on their network. So if you’re on Sprint, you can now jump up and down in joy as you are about to get some KitKat love. The change log has not been posted just yet, but we expect it to be relatively the same compared to the AT&T, and T-Mobile G2 updates as well as the Canadian update.

That means improved cloud printing, immersive mode, white status bar icons, and much more. You can check out my KitKat overview video on the T-Mobile LG G2 down below, if you’re interested to see what’s new. I’d also expect some bug fixes in there, possibly some network fixes as well, which is quite common with OTAs for carriers.

If you are on Sprint and have the LG G2, I suggest you jump into Settings, tap on About phone and Check for updates. So you can pull down your taste of KitKat. It’s a great update on the G2 – I can only speak for the T-Mobile variant – and I’m sure you all are going to love it. If you notice in the update that “Bluetooth” is in your battery stats and you don’t have it on, don’t worry too much. It’s a known bug that we’ve had for quite a while – not sure if it’s coming to the Sprint G2 as well so just a heads up. I’m still getting relatively the same, if not better, battery life on KitKat as I did on Jelly Bean. So don’t worry about it too much.

How many of you are on Sprint and excited to get the KitKat update finally?
