Although it’s not the most anticipated LG smartphone in 2015, the LG G Flex 2 was released with excellent specs which expected to compete with other flagship phone, and its curved design could be an additional value that is not owned by other smartphones. The Quad-core Snapdragon processor and the 3GB of RAM that is embedded inside are more than enough to support all your activities. Regrettably, it’s shipped with Android 5.0.1, the initial release of Android Lollipop which known to have a performance issues.
And it seems that LG does not let the software issues influence the device’s performance. For this reason, LG has released the updated version of Lollipop – Android 5.1.1 for the LG G Flex 2. It is the right step from LG since the latest Lollipop brings quite a lot of performance improvements and bug fixes.
According to some users who have the official Android 5.1 update running on their LG G Flex 2, the phones now run faster with smoother animation, and the heat issues seem to be gone with the release of this update. One thing that is interesting is the additional option to OEM Unlock in Developer options. Yet, we do not know exactly what it is, but many say if the bootloader now unlockable.
It seems that the update has not been released globally at the moment, only a few users in Israel and some other regions are lucky enough to experience the Android 5.1 on their G Flex 2. As usual, the US released device like AT&T (H950), Sprint (LS996) and US Cellular (US995), must wait until an unspecified time, since the update should follow the carrier certification process that will take some time.
