Verizon Wireless and LG want us to believe that even the low-end smartphone users won’t be forgotten. Take LG Lucid as an example. The update for this fairly insignificant device is rolling out as we speak. It’s not a spectacular update but hey – this thing can’t handle any spectacular software changes, anyway.
First and foremost, the new firmware (version VS840ZV9 ) includes multiple Android Security patches. Then there are updates to Google Map Services (to version R8), My Verizon, Sync Engine, VZ Navigator and Single Sign On (SSO) apps. Additionally, Verizon Remote Diagnostics (VRD) has been removed, Media has been added to Verizon Backup Assistant Plus, Family Based Applications reliability has been enhanced, and “VZW homepage” bookmark label renamed to “Mobile Web.” Finally, the app directed SMS messages can now be broadcasted to all app targets.
If you still didn’t get a notification to update – don’t worry. You should get it soon. Or you can manually check for updates by tapping “Settings” -> “About phone” and check for updates from there.
