Hello! I recently got a new LG G3 (LG D852) from Koodo. I am very happy with it, but with my previous experience with  LG, they do not update frequently at all. That is why I was happy to hear that the LG G3 is likely to get the newest Android update. 

My question is then about when would Koodo roll out the update OTA to its LG handsets?

Thank you!

No idea. It's probably still in the testing phases. My guess would be Q1 2016 at this time but nobody can tell you until LG gives the code to Telus to roll it out.

Thanks for the response! Is it guaranteed to show up eventually, though?

Guarantee is a strong word. I don't work for Koodo. So it will more than likely show up at some point if LG has announced it. You'll just have to play the waiting game.

The real sad part about this is that Koodo is giving the shaft to its customers by not requesting the updates from LG.  We are stuck with 5.0.1 that has multiple known deficiencies and bugs that have been fixed in later releases of Android (5.1) but we are unable to get.   The only way to protect myself has been to turn off the multimedia function inside of SMS.  I am paying for a service that I should be getting, but due to the TERRIBLE service provided by Koodo and it's decision not to push (demand) that the updates get tested and passed down to them from LG, I am getting inferior service.

I am left only to conclude the Koodo doesn't want my business nor want any referrals from me.  They sold me hardware that is bootstrap locked so I have ZERO ability to change the andriod loaded on the device.  You can't blame LG for the fault of Koodo's inaction.

I'm downloading Marshmallow as I write this. It didn't come down on OTA but I have to use the LG Mobile Support Tool - it's 1.2 GB.

So far so good. I haven't do a RESET yet. My concern is battery life. I will try for a few day before i decided if a hard RESET is required or not.

Battery life can be shorter for few days and it is normal after upgrade unless you do factory reset.If you do factory reset battery calibration and system optimization will start from scratch.
