Verizon Delivers Marshmallow to HTC One M9, LG G4
Verizon Wireless today said it is providing the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to a handful of phones, including the HTC One M9, LG G4, and LG G3. For the M9, Marshmallow brings Android Pay support, customizable notifications, Google Now On Tap, Doze, bug fixes and other improvements. For the G4, Marshmallow adds WiFi Calling in addition to the standard upgrade list for Android 6.0. The G3 will see a straight update to Android 6.0 without added feature from Verizon. Verizon said Marshmallow is pushing out over the air starting today. It may take several days to reach all devices.
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.
The LG G3 is one of the company's finest efforts and a strong competitor against the likes of Samsung's Galaxy S5 and HTC's One (M8). LG's flagship Android phone makes significant strides in design, quality, and features.
LG's flagship for 2015 is a tricky device to classify. It both lags and surpasses the competition.
The LG G3 is a solid device for Sprint customers to consider, and is among a growing number to offer Wi-Fi calling. Android smartphone enthusiasts would do well to read Phone Scoop's full report, which points out the phone's strengths and weaknesses.
HTC’s flagship One phones are iconic and well-regarded. The already refined design has been refined further for 2015, representing a relatively modest update.
