Sprint sends late Christmas Marshmallow gift to LG G Stylo owners

If timely software updates dictated the ranking of America’s “big four” carriers, Sprint would not only recoup its bronze medal from T-Mobile, but likely beat both Verizon and AT&T also and claim overall command.

The Now Network recently laid the first stone of LG G4’s Android 6.0 rollout stateside, and no doubt backed by possibly the most reliable device manufacturer when it comes to major UI makeovers, it’s dispatching Marshmallow goodies to the LG G Stylo as we speak.

Needless to say T-Mobile’s G Stylo variant is stuck on aging 5.0 Lollipop software, and will probably remain on board the sinking ship for a while longer. What’s ironic (and sad for Magenta fans) is the L-flavored 5.7-incher packs twice as much RAM as the Sprint-locked stylus-enabled phablet.

But don’t worry, 1 gig of memory is still plenty to smoothly run Android Marshmallow, in combination with a respectable quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, on a relatively sharp 720p display, and with a 3,000 mAh battery in charge of keeping the lights on while unplugged.

Doze Mode should help put everything to sleep when certain power-draining features aren’t needed, Google Now on Tap will provide quick, spot-on answers to questions you haven’t even fully devised in your head, and apps become less intrusive than ever, courtesy of a vastly improved permissions system.

Then you have a bunch of security augmentations, as well as general performance enhancements, all making their way to LG G Stylo users on Sprint over-the-air. Flip the Wi-Fi on therefore, juice up the battery, and enjoy your late but sweet and thoughtful Christmas presents.
