Now that the G4 is out, let’s not forget about LG’s first big phone of 2015, the G Flex 2. Announced at CES 2015, the phone still remains relevant – relevant enough that we gave the phone not one, but two reviews (one for when it came to Sprint in the United States). Sprint also thinks the phone remains relevant, apparently, since today the Sprint LG G Flex 2 Android 5.1.1 update has landed over-the-air for applicable units.

Since the last update for this phone was Android 5.1, there’s not much here in the way of changes in Android version. If bug fixes are what you’re here for, you’ll find plenty of those here, but not much else. Atop the firmware changes is the addition of Factory Reset Protection, which now requires the password of the Google account your phone is registered under in order to run a factory reset on the phone. This should certainly help step up the security game – hopefully now, strangers won’t be able to reset your phone, should they get past whatever lock screen security you have (or don’t have) in place.

The over-the-air update should be rolling out to all applicable G Flex 2 units as this post goes live. Check for updates!
