Update: LG will begin updating its G3 phone to Android 5.0 starting next week. It’s pretty clear by now that things have changed with regards to Android updates. Very good.
In the last few years, we’ve gotten used to OEMs either delaying updates for seemingly an eternity or not delivering them at all. This time, I sense a disturbance in the force lately – and I’m not referring to platform/external/jarjar in the actual Android source code. Vendors are now seemingly trying to compete which each other to see which will release Lollipop first.
Sony, Motorola (already releasing Lollipop for select Moto X models!), and Samsung all seem to be quite far along in updating to Lollipop. Great news for consumers.
