LG G5 receives a software update to v10d

g5 hero header

Switching on the LG G5 this morning welcomed me with a prompt to install a new software update, which will take the G5 from V10c (Android 6.0.1, March 2016 Patch Level) to V10d. The update is said to offer the following improvements:

  • Usability improvements through Google patch
  • Phone usability and functionality
  • Voice call quality

This update has arrived on our review unit, which is an un-branded non-carrier sourced version straight from LG, so if you bought your LG G5 from a carrier, you may not necessarily see this update immediately. There’s no reference to the existence of this update on Telstra or Optus‘ respective software update pages, and Vodafone aren’t ranging the device so we don’t expect to see it there.

We’re installing the update now, once it’s done we’ll let you know what we’ve noticed by updating this post.

Chris has been at the forefront of smartphone reporting in Australia since smartphones were a thing, and has used mobile phones since they came with giant lead-acid batteries that were "transportable" and were carried in a shoulder bag. He saw the transition from AMPS to GSM, loved the Motorola StarTac, and got into Palm technologies in a big way. The arrival some years later of the original iPhone, and then the early Androids, awoke a new interest in mobile technology, and Chris has been writing about it since.

Today, Chris publishes one of Australia's most popular technology websites, Ausdroid. His interests include mobile (of course), as well as connected technology and how it can make all our lives easier.

My G5 updated on Thursday (bought outright from Harvey Norman) haven’t noticed anything different though.
