Verizon Wireless recently added a new LG devices to its roster of prepaid phones. The LG Transpyre (pictured) is a rebadged version of the LG F60.

While not equal to the top of the line phones, they’re nothing to scoff at either.

Inside this device you’ll find a 4.5-inch WVGA display (207ppi), a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon MSM8926 processor, 1GB of RAM, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front sensor, 8GB of on-board storage with micro SD card slot up to 32 Gb and a 2020mAh Lithium ion battery.

The LG Transpyre runs Android 4.4 Kitkat and offers Bluetooth 4.0, mobile hotspot support for up to ten devices. Verizon Wireless is offering the device online and in stores now for $199.99, but it is sold with a pre-paid plan for just $99.99.

T-Mobile’s variant of the LG G Flex started receiving an update (D95920s) last night that weighs in at 220MB. Sadly, this is not the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop. The update, at least for now, is mostly a mystery. T-Mobile has yet to post a changelog to their support area, so until that happens, we will have to rely on your word.

LG G3 users on T-Mobile, were you able to download the update? If so, what changes do you notice?

Baseband version: M8974A-AAAANAZM-2.0.20064

Kernel Version: 3.4.0

To check for the update, head into Settings>About Phone>Update center>System updates>Check now.
