Thank You LG! I appreaciate you have intensely worked on updating my G Flex with Lollipop! Freaking kidding me?! Mid-range phones are getting 5.0 and my "not very cheap" LG phone is stuck on shitty Kit-Kat?!?!?!? Shame on you, ol' mighty LG!
Monthly security updates is a great moves by LG. Hope to see more android phone company work with Google.
Security updates should leave to the OS maker not the OEMs. OEMs should not be messing with the OS too much.

Android version update require LG alteration to match their android skin. Security updates is a direct android fix which can be send to consumers immediately without alteration.

This costs time and money which lg may or may not deem worthy spending depending on the device.
Security updates however, require a patch on the current code so they take much less time to make and test before rolling them out.
It is definitely possible.

LG : We will only provide monthly security update to our flagship. Low and midrange smartphone can go to hell. lol
well i hope companies doesnt avoid to update android versions too while updating security on them.
Wow look like LG is acting so free to care about their customers. In reality they dump alot of flagship phone users. Started from G, G2.... So low end LG phone users don't hope there will be security fix. You Are Infected With Virus Everyday
