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.
Maikel-Netherlands, 28 Apr 2015Just got notification of: New Software V20a-APR-10-2015 (778.26MB) Im gonna wait a few ... moreOne 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

EmmaB, 27 Apr 2015Hi Could anyone tell me how much more space lollipop need than kitkat (on lg l90 d405n woul... moreIt uses the same space as kitkat which gives you about 3.8gb free space. And yes you can move apps to sd card. Those restrictions are gone since long time ago.
Could anyone tell me how much more space lollipop need than kitkat (on lg l90 d405n would be the best as thta's what I have)
Also does lollipop allow apps and their data to be moved to SD card?
in greece now is upgreted the phone in android lolipop 5.0.2.very nice phone.
Last week this model received an official 5.0 lollipop update (at least on DNA FINLAND carrier). Maybe write it in there?
hahaha they cut some camera features like funny face mode in rear and front camera. wow so many cuts. Why LG? Hope L90 gets new UX 4.0 features in future update
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.
Kitkat 4.4.2 is indeed superior.
At this moment LG should release Kitkat 4.4.4 instead Lollipop for L90-D405.
If LG wants to be the best than they better listen to their costumers. Serious, make no crap updates because it make ur phone complete useless.
Its seems that kitkat is more attractive OS then LP. Because its feature rich and its fastest Android to date. I do not regret updating to LP but now i see that latest Android OS is not so great after all. This makes me a better choice not purchasing any new device because of just that. I saw tons of video in comparison and KK is faster in any way then LP. The only reason vhy LP is better is of api level and some less restrictions then KK and camera 2 api. Thats it. I will wait for new upgrade for new purchase. Material design and LP is just boring. And i think its wrong directio n just as metro design which si SO boring. LP is new JB as i said before
For those who dont wont to upgrade dont because there is no need for it. I think this is maybe the most bugfree kitkat device out there. And here is one more feature they cut from kitkat. MHL streaming, screen off. Now that is a big feature for me. For those who want to upgrade, upgrade there is no problem. Only downside is smoothness downgrade by 10 procent overall. Seems that app animations cant be turned off!
Sd400 is getting very hot at 55c something that never happend in kitkat which was at 42c max no matter what you do.
I fint know if I have bugfree unit but I never had any problems on my device except app crashes on the first version like Bluetooth and camera but I have fix it with couple of resets. Overall drawbacks for me is no visible silent mode but there is a substitute for that in notification "don't disturb button" landscape mode in home screen/appdrawer and white background with black fonts in appdrawer. No sms time stamp. Everything else have no effect for me. Now something positive. New smart keyboard with build in swipe mode, no need for Google keyboard anymore. Downloadable launguage packs. Two language prediction at the same time. No app crashes. Flash light notification in settings build in. No animation hiccups when animation turned off in developer mode. Battery seems to be holding pretty well after 2-3 full discharge recharge cycles. Not so good realtime est to zero but it needs fresh readings by cycles Battery calibration! Screen recording enabled, voice call recorder enabled. Es file explorer write to external card permission fixed. Chromecast working without any problem. App notification dedicated in settings not in programs but it's dedicated now. Video player works when locking screen by power button. This is some of New features and there is more. 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. So far so good so I will try to find essential bugs like drop call big,drop data big just to return device but everything seems to work bugfree.
Uh... after i read post from Punisher... i think that im not updated my l90...
Android27, 23 Apr 2015The screen bug is irritating. Besides that, and the few changes, there is no loss in produc... moreI'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
Punisher, 23 Apr 2015Lollipop upgrade is now available for D405 and its the same version as D410 which is V20a. Now... moreThe screen bug is irritating.
Besides that, and the few changes, there is no loss in productivity.
Punisher, 19 Apr 2015Its not hardware issue on this device because SD400 can handle fast charge up to 1.5A accordin... moreWell, that's a relief then and here I thought that the L90 wasn't capable of charging quickly.
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.
