LG G2 upgrade to Android 4.4 Kitkat this March

We just got word from LG Philippines that the upgrade to Android 4.4 Kitkat of the LG G2 is due to roll out this month.

The LG G2 has been around since September 2013 and is the first one of LG handsets to get the latest Android Kitkat upgrade.

The LG G2 32GB variant still has the suggested retail price of Php29,990 while the 16GB model retails for Php24,990 (of course, the street prices have already gone down to the Php20k to Php25k range).

We’ll update more on this once the upgrade is in progress.

    Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong versions can be updated! …Asan na ang Pinas?

    • Dapat nauna pa ang Pinas sa updates kesa sa US kasi nasa Asian region tayo at unlocked ang karamihan sa G2 dito satin e. But what happened? Inuna ng LG ang US Market with most of them nakalock pa ang G2 sa carriers. Disappointing ang LG :/

  2. oo nga neilruzty,pati ba naman sa update kulilat pinas.. nag check ako now OTA and PC Suite wala parin D802 saken na may NTC seal

  3. it’s official, update your phone now. it’s avail via lg pc suite, no ota yet.

    done updating!

    • buti naman,kalma ka na ah?baka mamatay ka sa highblood e.

  4. im stuck in “downloading upgrades…” 0% and then says restore upgrade errors..anyone knows how to fix this? =(

    • open LC PC SUITE > connect your Phone >MOBILE DEVICE > Restore Upgrade Errors

      magdodownload yan ng medyo matagal, masyadong malaki file size

  5. Done updating my g2…via pc suite…so far so good..mas bumilis nga and.oks na.oks battery life…thanks lg…waiting for g3…

  6. 4hours po yung downloading sken ng update..pocket wifi gamit ko..sun network..3G.

  7. just updated my Philippine version G2. It’s noticeably faster overall especially sa camera at sa knock on. New nav and status bars at new transition effects. But it’s almost the same as the 4.2.2 na pinabilis lang. Wala din sa update yung ART :/

  8. Yup, 4hrs down load from 1:30 to 5:30 kahit 15Mbps internet speed ko mabagal parin mg update. Kaya tyaga lng. Overall nice job. But haven’t notice anything about battery life..

    • Noticed any battery issues sa 4.4.2 update? Sakin kasi pumangit ung battery life compared nung nsa 4.2.2 pa ung g2 ko. My phone is in 50% brightness and WiFi nakaOn all the time but I get 6-8 hrs nlng from full charge to dead battery with average use

    • Well, as for the battery life. Wala akong masasabi kasi ung usage ko ng cp ay hindi parepareho sa araw araw.. pero sam then pg ginagamit ko ung cp ko palagi 6-8 hrs lng mobile data always on. Then streaming kdramas online during break time or if i have nothing to do. From 7am-1pm or 7am-4pm lng battery life ng unit bago mg update. Then after mg update same lng din so di ko mapasin kung ng improve or same lng..

    • Ahh. Siguro may hindi lang ako naayos sa settings na nagddrain ng battery ko. Hmmm

  9. so, marami ngang improvement, but ask ko lang din sa inyo, if naeexperience nyo din ito after the update…

    (1) while playing a music, using a headset, may error sound, para siyang magiintermittent, i tried my 2 headset and a speaker, and kapag ita-touch mo na ang phone to navigate, don nangyayari, pero hindi madalas, pero hindi ganon to before

    (2) sudden unresponsive touch screen, something i’ve never experienced before

    ito palang napansin ko,

    • 1) yung music intermittent sound problem is also occuring to my phone. Maybe an update will fix that

      2) sakin hindi naman nagiging unresponsive but naging mas responsive pa siya

      Ang problem ko lang is battery life talaga.
      Wish ko lang sana included ang ART sa Dev options since yung update sa Korean version G2 is included yun

    • Anyone noticed yung dalawang key sa tabi ng space bar sa kanan sa LG keyboard ng 4.4? Parehong comma yung keys instead of a period and a comma

    • Paw..long press mo lang pra mapalitan mo..napapalitan yan…battery life ko oks naman 2 days..txt twag konting internet and mga 20mins games..sa music diko pa na eencounter intermittent..comment ulit ako pag na encounter kona…last na encounter ko na.problem biglang nag system ui not responding pag open.ko ng isang app na connected.sa.internet…

  10. may knock code ba ung update nyo sa kitkat? sakin kasi wala and yun talaga ineexpect ko sa update ng kitkat sa lg g2.

  11. Recently updated my G2. So far, I can see no defects on my phone’s performance. Faster in overall specs, camera status bars and yeah transition effects. I got to enjoy my knockon. I’ll keep you updated if there’s any malfunctions.

  12. guys. i tried updating my LG G2 but it freezes at 49% on com 5 using LG PC suite. pls help

  13. Got the upgrade and loving it. I got my G2 at globe, one of the best phone I owned.
