Sprint was one of the major U.S. carriers that decided to carry LG’s curvy smartphone, the G Flex. It was offered for $300 with a two year contract by Sprint. Those who picked one up have something to be happy about today. The Sprint LG G Flex Android 4.4 update has finally been released, bringing with it all the bells and whistles we have come to expect from the KitKat update.
Last week AT&T released the same update for its G Flex variant as well. The update included LG’s Knock Code feature which is an entirely new way to unlock the smartphone even if its display is turned off. Sprint has now finally followed up by releasing the update for its variant.
Users will notice a number of changes after updating to Android 4.4 KitKat on their Sprint LG G Flex. There are subtle user interface improvements which include a new location menu and revamped status. Improved security and closed captioning support is included as well.
The Sprint LG G Flex Android 4.4 update is being rolled out in batches. What this means is that it may take a while for this update to go live across all regions, so mashing the update button in the settings application won’t do much good. Once the update goes live in a region it should automatically pop up on all supported devices.
