Ah, the poor LG Spectrum. Soon after it was released with mediocre Gingerbread-based software the Samsung Galaxy S III showed up to rain on LG's parade. Well, the Spectrum is getting a big update to Android 4.0.4 that should make owners much happier. Watch out, though. It clocks in at a whopping 384MB.
Many of the new features will be familiar to users of ICS on other devices, but some of it is part of LG's Android skin. Features include:
Customizable lock screen shortcuts
Customizable home screen launch bar
ICS system theme
ICS-style app drawer with widgets
Quick settings in the notification panel
New power saving functionality
ICS data usage monitor
Verizon Remote Diagnostic Tool (if you're into that sort of thing)
Yes, Jelly Bean has been out for months, but this was not a terribly well-received phone.
