Today Iíve installed my new update, Android lollipop 5.0.2 (V20a-EUR-XX) on my L90 D405n and itís very beautiful. When the download is ready installing the pack will be something like 7-8 minutes.


In apps drawer on Kitkat you had option to pick wallpaper specifically for the app drawer, something like 3 standard wallpapers and 1 transparent but thatís not available anymore. Transparent is standard, in other words wallpaper on frontpage is automatically wallpaper in apps drawer. Who knows with a next update they can bring this back but than with the option to add wallpapers in app drawer directly from Gallery.

I like the pulldown menu, and the whole menu system. Also how the email looks and other apps are great! In general everything looks cool and Iím very happy, thanks LG.

And for sms time stamp i dont mean detail of recevied sms but send time stamp if you know what i mean. The time when sender has send sms even if your phone is offline when you get that sms you get even time when that sms has been send to you. 5 daya ago 7 days ago etc. Its fetching from sms. And no it can be showned witout sms time stamp app and for kitkat you need app ops to enable sms writing permission. Apps ops doesnt work anymore in lollipop so no sms time stamp. For video recording voice call recording. Original stock app doesnr work. Yes i know it works if you root your phone but those featurea are enabled in lollipop by default. No root requaired

On a sidenote, use the app 'Superbackup' to create and restore backups. Now if you have root access, then all the better, because allowing root access to this app will let you restore those apps that have data stored on the external SD card.

Just some advice that on creating a backup, do NOT make the mistake of copying the backup file to PC WITHOUT archiving it. First, install ES File Explorer and then, create a zip archive of the backup file.

Then and ONLY then, move it to the PC or else it will take you millions of years to copy it to PC because I HAVE tried doing that and for some reason Windows 7 or Android system isn't able to move the file correctly. The process gets stuck ultimately.

What ? I understand that the Zenfone is not available everywhere, but the S6 is easily accessible anywhere on Earth.

Apps can be moved to SD, now that the new API in LP allows the specific app to make a request for such a permission. Any app that requires access to SD card, can do so, by simply asking the user at the time of installation.

So yes, they CAN be moved.

I think you received a bug here. The time stamps in SMS are totally carried over to Lollipop. I can post a screenshot if you wish.

"Screen recording enabled, voice call recorder enabled..."

Was already working, way back in Kitkat

"Es file explorer write to external card permission fixed..."

Could have been fixed manually, in Kitkat. I did it. Used the 'SD Fix' app.

"Now I've upgraded because of warranty policy which day if the device is not user friendly or useless even after 1 year warranty I can return product in 3 years after purchase..."

Never knew such a warranty existed. Lucky you.

I love this phone. It is the best device you can find at this price point (130 Euro in my country). It's very well balanced and now it received an Android 5.02 update. I changed my HTC Desire 516 for this one and it's worth it so much. Personally I don't like the idea of dropping 500-600 Euro for a flagship device so I stick to mid-range devices like this one. Compared to smartphones from the same price-range or even some more expensive, the L90 has all the pros and non of the cons other devices have.

> In reply to Maikel-Netherlands @ 2015-04-28 23:19 from nXX$ - click to readOne of positive things is that you have a chance to see what is like having a lollipop without buying a new phone. Because this year is absolutely garbage. Excpet galaxy s6 and Zenfone2 which will never come. The rest is just not worth investing in a new phone. The one thing that have been improved alot is gaming. No game crash whats so ever. And also i have noticed that they did something to display brightness. It isnt brigth as before im not sure but it seems to be dimmer then before. Im not buying new phone this year at all because only good thing out there is galaxy s6 which way to expensive. Will wait for broxton or new krait when it comes

Last week this model received an official 5.0 lollipop update (at least on DNA FINLAND carrier). Maybe write it in there?

Ok here is the best way to reslove landscape rotation/white background black font knocn to sleep in this device and i tried planty of ways. Install Apex launcher, Greenify app.
First you set menu button in original settings to view menu item and not task manager!
In apex set homebutton for recent apps/task manager. For menu button set nothing!. For double tap set shortcut for greenify hibarnate and lock then double tap on home screen you have to activate prompt permission. So now you have task manager on home button like before, menu button as menu. White background for sunlight and when holding home button you have addition prompt for hibarnate and lock so now home button is also the lock button when holding longer.
