Im not sure i will upgrade untill i see V20***b*** or **c** in lg open source. I will not make same misstake twice as i did with my old lg phone. Im on kitkat v10d and its flawless. If i want lollipop i will buy new phone anyway. Dont want to mess up something that works perfectly!
Punisher, 22 Mar 2015Is it stable? Bugs? App crashes?I haven't updated as I have a lot of backing up to do. I don't want to lose important data, comprising mostly text files and messages.
Besides, the update is ONLY for the D410 (dual SIM) in select countries. So if I remember correctly, the update for T-Mobile D405 is yet to be released. Assuming you're on that particular model.
Go through the D410 comments here on GSMArena and you might gain some insight into the problems, but for the most part, the bugs aren't massive. At least not enough to disrupt your workflow.
Also, while I'm at it, go through these threads
Finally, I should let you have a peek at the message that I've yet to dismiss while I'm in the process of making copies of backups
Here, straight from my phone,
After using it for almost a year, the phone is seamless after all the rooting and customization. It with stands all, But the battery back is the only with the wavy graphs. Rest the graphics performance and all the features which is in-built are Awesome.
Its a handy phone with many tweaks and customization.
Some of my favys are:
-Memo (with individual memo locks)
-Call blocking and privacy keeper
-Messaging theme, management for spam and saved msgs
-Pop-up call and msgs
-Best feature comes in when u put the Quick window cover
KUDOS for LG !!!
Awaiting for similar budget oriented smartphones from LG
Kuukkelih, 22 Mar 2015Been using this exact phone for a year now, no problems what so ever, really good phone.I own the phone. Question is not about the phone but about lollipop upgrade!!!

Please note that the following applies to D410.
Update already released here 2-3 days ago. This morning, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that an update was available.
Actually, the backstory is, that I had turned off the notifications because I had no hope for an update. However, I think it is due the lack of expectation that made the discovery even sweeter.
Oh, and while I'm at it, I should also mention that the update weighs in around 700mb+ and that you NEED TO BE ON STOCK ROM to receive it. Root or No Root, doesn't matter, but the ROM should be Stock, no Custom ROMs.
I can't upload the pic at the moment, but I'm sure the update is more 700mb+

I know all the L series phones have dead pixels issue, Anyway. You can install this app "Dead pixel test" and run test on dark screen.

red, 18 Mar 2015Update for Lolipop is released andriod Where? In Croatia still nothing
Yes, android 5.0 coming. India test country. So about one or two months we will get it. Great. New apps new UI almost the same from lg g3 new remote everything
pop, 22 Feb 2015Does anubody notice problem with screen like death pixels?I've also noticed some dead pixels. My phone is in warranty period but I'm afraid if i claim to change its lcd screen or to the phone, there is a chance I'll get more dead pixels than this in replacd phone l90. I've heard most of the sony and lg phone display have this problem of dead pixels. this is my unfortunate that i bought this phone over moto g2 or samsung s3.
Android27, 11 Mar 2015I'm using Airdroid, with a little workaround to external SD card limitation.
Here, use this... moreI have manually fixed the SD card bug on my rooted phone, just as those apps do - but it appeared not to help for Route66, maps were still stored in the phone memory.
However, today I discovered that now the phone function System->General->Apps->[problem app]->"move to SD card" works for the application data such as maps; and from then on, Route66 automatically saves new maps there too!
This may work similarly for other software as well.
So, I'm happy again with this phone, as the problem with limited available user memory was easily fixed after all.
Hmmm it seems that stock streaming player is directly associated with android stock web browser and not as selective player. If you want to play streaming videos then you need to forward open them in stock browser as always to choose stock stremaing player. And some videos doesnt work in chrome browser like on imdb but same videos work in android stock web browser. That is strange. I wish that stock streaming playee work as main selective streaming player as it is very very capable

Here, use this to fix that limitation
And as for using network, let me inform you that you do not need internet to use Airdroid (or even Fastfile Transfer). There's another one in the market, known as Xender but I suggest to stay away from it (though it might look appealing, fact is, that it uses internet by default)
To avoid the use of internet, simply use an 'Ad Hoc' or 'Access Point' network hosted by either of the devices. I use L90's hotspot to host the network but if one prefers the other way, that is, to make the PC as host, then make use of some third party tool, for example 'Connectify'.
This setup works flawlessly on my L90 and has yet to fail me.
