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?
Source code for d405 is out so for anyone who wants to upgrade count about 2 months from now there will be an upgrade. For me i will wait and see feedback

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

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)

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!
Im owner of D405N, single sim version. So, give me advice, please. Update or not update LG? I read all around that update 5.0.x have a lot bug and that is better to stay on factory Kitkat. Thank you very much!

Can you check if lollipop have fast charge if you have any more powerfull charger of course. Tnx

Does it has signal whey you are in the c... moreYes it have good gps signal when using third party software like navigon but keep in mind!!! that new google maps is different now. 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!
Does anyone known how it's GPS signal at this phone ? Does it has signal whey you are in the car without keep it at the window, or when it's cloudy ?

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.

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
Ugh ok I washed
My phone ,I put it in rice for a week .....it was workin fine until today I have a password and I can't get into my phone now!!!!! Please help
I think that new screen from lg g4 will pop out more :) but either way those phones are pricy. If you think after 800€ for a phone with those money you can buy a new tv or laptop or something else. 800€ is way to much for a mobile even if it has great performance.
It's confirmed now.
There is a lockscreen bug in Lollipop update. I again watched how my phone would NOT turn on no matter how many times I'd power it on and swipe.
I don't use any security BTW. The phone will magically power itself off whenever you try to power it (via power button). I once tried to quickly get to the homescreen just to check if it is a triggered phenomenon, but no, it isn't. It's a timed phenomenon. The phone will power off within a certain amount of time (in milliseconds) no matter where you were at that time.
So if you were just staring at the screen. - It'll turn OFF
if you just swiped to unlock it - It'll turn OFF
if you were in the MIDDLE of a swipe - It'll turn OFF
...like an object in mid-air.
So, this IS a bug. That's bad, after all I went through to update to LP. Though it doesn't happens frequently, but when it whenever it does, it is annoying to the core.
To those who need might need it,
Call recorder works on Lollipop but only the one from 'skvalex'
A guy stood next to me with his S6 Edge. I have to admit, the screen was indeed popping out, but he made no use of the curves nor did he do anything extraordinary that couldn't have been done by a mid-range device. Just calls and browsing.
Fact is, most buy phones to game. That is the only area where high processing power is required. Graphics, to be precise. And that's it. With adequate amount of RAM and good customization, any phone can work for you (except for graphically intensive apps). I've now shifted my focus to other areas like display, RAM, storage, connectivity, battery, service, bugless stock ROM, XDA support...
I will stick on this mobile for a while longer, nothing wrong with this device, actually its very good device. Asus zf2 is a joke of availability and im not willing to pay samsung 800+€ for a mobile device. Yes its looks nice but that is just to expensive for a mobile. Will stay on KK for time being but will wait for a mobile with superstable lollipop 5.1.1 or 5.2 out of the box. This time both android and mobiles are just to ridiculous with bugs, fails etc. Maybe next nexus device with proper 64bit soc. Nothing intressting this year. Just overpriced mobiles. Tnx but no tnx
