T-Mobile LG V10 expected to get Android 6.0 update next week


When T-Mobile’s LG G4 started receiving Android 6.0 back in February, many LG V10 owners were left wondering when their taste of Marshmallow would arrive. Now it looks like their wait will soon come to an end.

@askdes just revealed that the LG V10 “should” start receiving Android 6.0 next week. There’s not much other information available, so we don’t know the exact date that the rollout could start or what features the update will include, other than a bump to Android 6.0. It’s also worth noting that Des said the update “should” start rolling out next week, so here’s to hoping that there aren’t any last-minute complications or setbacks.


The V10 was LG’s second Android flagship of 2015, and because it’s a flagship-tier device, it’s understandable that owners are anxiously awaiting their Android 6.0 update following the G4’s update. Thankfully, it looks like it won’t be too much longer before you V10 folks are using features like Google Now on Tap.

Stay tuned and I’ll let you know more about the V10’s Marshmallow rollout as the info becomes available. Until then, you can get a preview of what Marshmallow looks like on the LG V10 by checking out PhoneDog’s hands-on video showing Android 6.0 running on Verizon’s LG V10, which was updated last month.

    About time!

    • OSG45

      My thoughts exactly ❕❕❕

  • Verizonthunder

    Nice, love my LG V10 with 9000mah extended battery.

    • Trevnerdio

      9k? What the hell? That’s massive lol

      • Verizonthunder

        9,000mah from Zerolemon. It’s a great product and with rapid charge dead to full in 1 hour and thirty minutes.

        • Trevnerdio

          That’s pretty badass…too bad I never keep phones long enough to get one!

        • Verizonthunder

          Indeed great for long mmorpg. Yeah, used to swap phones like crazy. Now I focus on my Sport Sedan

        • Trevnerdio

          +1 on my car being a worse addiction for my wallet than drugs…but at least with JUMP! It doesn’t really cost me any more to switch out phones.

        • Verizonthunder

          Sorry to hear. I don’t have issues with my Mercedes just need to follow A & B service which showed on my odometer. Grandfathered jump or current?

        • Trevnerdio

          Oh no, it’s a performance addiction. It’s a 2013, I hope it wouldn’t be getting sloppy already lol

          I’m first gen Jump

        • Verizonthunder

          Need for speed :)

          Cool first gen jump is the best

  • Paul Garrison

    I’m looking for your price drop news on the V10.

    • levp

      Indeed. It’s been what, 5 month since launch? Plus, with G5 out, you’d think there will be at least some kind of sale…

    • Verizonthunder

      Try swappa

  • MastarPete

    Any word if the FM radio will be enabled? I mean, not sure how much I’d use it but it would be nice to have access to it.

    • Trevnerdio

      I’d just forget about that. That went the way of the dodo years ago on Android phones, unfortunately. Why get free radio waves when you can download an app and get paid for ad revenue? It’s about manufacturers looking out for their business partners.

  • Cat88L3

    And the Note 5 is still on Lollipop….Ridiculous….

  • Walt

    The Galaxy S6 is still on lollipop. What a joke

  • T Redd

    I hope this helps with terrible battery life

    • MastarPete

      I hope so too but I think last year’s Snapdragon 800 chips were all power hogs. I’m not really doing anything terribly crazy with mine, just a lot of apps. I’d unplug at like 6am put it on the charger in my car for waze and network mapping while I drive, shut everything down when I got to work around 7~7:20am and I would have to swap batteries (I got the battery promo) by the afternoon sometimes as early as 1 or 2, other times I could make it to 4 and charge a bit while I drove but usually I just swap to avoid the extra heat. I have noticed that the original battery that came with my phone, dated 2015.10.17 is about 2 hours weaker than the battery I got from the LG battery promo which is dated almost a month later.

      I got a zerolemon and that has solved it for me, but I haven’t really done the 6 full charge cycles while leaving it on the charger longer as they suggest. I got a NFC sticker and taped the contacts down but I don’t care wireless charging. Sure I’m now holding a brick but at least I can go a full day now and not have to worry about plugging in.

    My next phone is going to be a Nexus. My mother’s 2 year old Nexus 5 has been running Marshmallow since October 2015 lol

  • Trevnerdio

    Looks like T-Mobile has been dropping the ball on updating their “Software Updates” page then. I’ve been checking for the last few months about an update for my phone (the V10), and it’s been saying manufacturer development the whole time…not even T-Mobile testing.

  • Duck Dodgers

    My V-10 updated over night last night.

  • Jimmy James

    This took 6 months for a phone that was released after 6.0 was available. Also, LG stated an update would be available in December.
