> In reply to Android27 @ 2015-04-23 18:25 from vwp7 - click to readI've updated too. One time soft reset and one time hard reset just to clean junk. I see some stuff too. There is new features but also cuts. For usb mtp multi mode i understand they cut the view option its in recognition mode by usb and then you select, lesser space in rom. Then you have usb internet moved to connection mode, all visible now. Much more function in settings but cuts are. No landscape home launcher mode. Remote contorl in notification doesnt change by holding but by single tap. No lockscreen widget any more. App ops doesnt work in lollipop. No sms time stamp any more. Video merged with gallery. Now this is a biggy for me. No background change option in appdrawer. Why. I need white background with black fonts cause of sun :) lock screen knock code works without bug! No original app statistic not in use! No roboto font! Homescreen need more dedicated option shortcut not just google and opera mini. Video smart screen not visible any more think its merged with smartscreen. Daydream much better now! Baterryguru not working any more. No refresh option what so ever. Think that project volta is taking over now. Energy mode enables cpu and perfomance control but it doesnt explain what it does. Now thay did this cuts because of low priority and maintaning phone under class by default. Thats why those cuts but at same time some other stuff. Ram managment is more realtime now. Not so much but there is a difference. Alarm moved to clock. I will check antutu if there is any perfomance boost

Besides that, and the few changes, there is no loss in productivity.

Which reminds me, of the 1.5A stock charger itself. I got the 2.1A charger too, but sadly the charging had no effect on it. I hope that this kernel theory is correct.

Lollipop upgrade is now available for D405 and its the same version as D410 which is V20a. Now i wonder what is V20b in source code. Is that the later stability update? As i remember there where 2 or 3 updates prior to lollipop and every single one of them where at 4 months update cycle and before this one the latest update was somewhere in december-januari. Is that the new lg update policy?

> In reply to Android27 @ 2015-04-19 19:26 from bC93 - click to readIts not hardware issue on this device because SD400 can handle fast charge up to 1.5A according to qualcomm website. Maybe usb connector cant handle it
I have charger that maximum output is 3A and have 4 ports.
Its a kernel issue thats why i asked about lollipop if they have changed that. Maybe custom rom can enable fast charge if there is one for that purpose. Will wait for news about lollipop otherwise i will root and upgrade to cyanogen 12 or later about a year after i buy a new phone

> In reply to nick @ 2015-04-18 22:38 from 3igx - click to readCheck with folks in your region. The update is not the same for all versions and even on the same version, for different regions.

For example I cannot disable shutter sound on the D410, but some of the owners in other parts of the world are able to.

Search XDA for more info.

FYI there is no bug which will prevent you from running an app or something along those lines. It is a fully functional update, and a few changes in the ROM which might or might not annoy you (for the most part, you will be pleased)

> In reply to Punisher @ 2015-04-18 18:06 from m%cT - click to readNo it's not about Lollipop, but the hardware itself. Asus Zenfone 2, for example, supports 'Fastcharge' so a 2.1A charger can work wonders on it.

The L90, sadly, doesn't seems to support that feature and the max that it accepts is 720mA (I used a 2.1A charger)

But still, it charges quite fast with that charger. I recall that the stock charger was not bad either. However, I never had the chance to test its output as it stopped working after 4 months and I stumbled upon the app (which measures current output) only after it broke down.

Its an opinion thing. Yes as i have heard its full of bugs. I personally will not update at all because everything works very well on latest kitkat update. Why update if it works and there is no bugs. Wait for lollipop update v20c/d. I will update when Lg comes with offical update 5.1 news. The only thing which doesnt work very well with some apps on kitkat is art runtime. Some apps doesnt work properly but why change to art when dalvik is stable!

It doesnt work anymore on batterymode in realtime positioning!!! This have nothing to do with gps signal, by the way it uses data network for fecthing position. Only gps and high position works in google maps for realtime tracking!

> In reply to Punisher @ 2015-04-14 20:45 from m@Bn - click to readNo, this has to be region specific.

For example, the camera shutter sound option is different for some other D410 users. I confirmed it on XDA.

This HAS to be region specific. I'll just wait for one last update, then flash CM12 or other ROM. They have performance enhancements and additional functions over the Stock ROM. The only downside to it being the degradation in camera quality, but then, phone cameras aren't meant for photography anyway.

> In reply to Android27 @ 2015-04-12 06:31 from 2Zce - click to readThats what im trying yo say. It seems that lollipop is new jelly bean. Full of bugs. And now i wonder how google think about os strategy and stability. They cant update bug fix like windows but because there os already history of android i come to conclusion that every second os upgrade is stable one. Kitkat is most stable android version to this date. Just to clarify security hole is not part of stability. This phone is better on kitkat so i advice everyone not to upgrade because you will have a malfunctioned phone
