LG was obviously very proud to be the first non-Google manufacturer to announce that their flagship smartphone would be updated to Android Marshmallow, but there’s been a bit of a hiccup. According to reports on Reddit, the Android Marshmallow update for the LG G4 has been stopped in Poland with LG citing “technical reasons” for the delay. We’re not quite sure what the issue might be, but we’re glad LG stopped the update rather than continue the roll out and deal with the bug later (which they kind of did for Android Lollipop on the LG G3 and then never fixed it); however, there’s no word on when the roll-out may start again.
This isn’t the first time a manufacturer has halted an update to deal with issues – Samsung did so not long ago with the Android Lollipop. In the end, it’s always better to find the issues before they’re widespread complaints, but you kind of get the feeling the manufacturers are rushing at breakneck speed to get these updates out instead of carefully making sure they’re optimized for their devices.
