When it's not busy being a curved smartphone that's a little awkward but still worth paying attention to, the LG G Flex is updating to Android 4.4 KitKat. T-Mobile today announced that the phone is being upgraded from its 4.2 Jelly Bean version. An over-the-air update is going out to G Flex devices tied to the network beginning today, and you can check to see if your phone is able to download the new software by going to Settings > General > System > About phone > System updates.
The 149MB update package will introduce the headline features of Android 4.4, most of which are incremental changes like boosting performance. T-Mobile is quick to note that this should also bring some positive effects on battery life. Other standard features include options for wireless printing, full-screen album cover art on the lock screen, and faster multitasking. One LG-specific change according to T-Mobile is the inclusion of KnockCode, a feature that lets users wake the phone by tapping a unique pattern on screen.source: T-Mobile
