Another Android smartphone at AT&T is being upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat today. Following yesterday's announcement that the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active was updated, AT&T today announced that the LG G2 is getting the latest version of Android as well. Predictably, the changelog reveals familiar items of improvement. There have been some small user interface changes in the virtual navigation bars, a new full-screen immersive mode within certain apps, and a few security enhancements.
AT&T also promises improvements in performance with a "noticeable speed boost" in most apps, particularly the browser. The LG G2 was already a very fast phone, so owners might be happy to know that it's gotten better. KitKat also introduces some improvements in power efficiency so battery life should last longer. One LG-specific improvement is a better Knock On, which can unlock a phone with two taps on the front display.
Charge your phone 75 percent and then then attempt to download the update by going to Settings > General > About phone > Software update > Update Now
