Verizon's Note 3 Earns Lollipop Update Today
Verizon Wireless said its version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will begin to receive Android 5.0 Lollipop today. The over-the-air update will roll out to all users gradually. According to Verizon, seven of its handsets now run Lollipop, including the Motorola Moto X (2nd gen); Galaxy Note 4, S5, and Note 3; LG G2 and G3; and the HTC One M8.
Motorola is back with a new version of its X, its top-of-the-line smartphone. The X is a better competitor than last year's device as far as features go and takes build quality to the next level.
Last year's Moto X was a major turnaround point for Motorola. Building on the critical acclaim of the first model, the company is back at it with the second generation Moto X.
LG came out gunning for Samsung with the G2, its new flagship smartphone. The G2's spec list is crammed full of the latest and greatest options, and its software improvements are also notable.
The LG G2 is a flagship smartphone that is bristling with technology, but stumbles here and there getting it all to work. Here are our thoughts on the Verizon version, which is slightly different from the AT&T version.
The G3 from LG shows plenty of promise, though it is far more complicated than the "simple is the new smart" message LG used to describe it. Here is our initial hands-on report.

It's A Sad Day
The at&t Note 3 isn't going to get Loillipop for several more months, if it ever does at all.
