Android 7.0 Nougat Update Now Available for LG Phoenix 2 Devices on AT&T

lg-phoenix-2-at&t
Everyone in the tech industry is already looking forward to the next Android O OS update. But even though it's still going to be released in a few months, a number of smartphones still have not yet been updated to the latest OS available, Android 7.0 Nougat. And for some devices, the update is only arriving now.

One such device to receive the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS update is the LG Phoenix 2 on AT&T. For a budget smartphone that launched last year, the LG Phoenix 2 is still getting the update for the OS. And compared with some of the newer models (like the ASUS ZenFone 3 Zoom), this is pretty impressive for the Phoenix 2.

The Android 7.0 Nougat update has a size of 1.37GB on the Phoenix 2. It already includes the security patches released last April 1st as well as the Firefox browser. If you own an AT&T LG Phoenix 2, you can check to see if the update is already available on your device by going to Settings > General > About phone > Update Center.

  2. Geat news about the update. Unfortunately the battery life on the phone is terriblw (battery is too small- approx 2200MA). Maybe the update will help soe with that.

  4. Android 7 has been out for ~6 months, and is still only running on 7% of Android devices in use.
    So when you say: "a number of smartphones still have not yet been updated to the latest OS available, Android 7.0 Nougat." that is a massive understatement.
    Android fragmentation is still awful for users. And their wireless security.

    1. I agree *100000!

      Android is a trainwreck. Google doesn't control what version you use. The device manufacturer does. In some cases the cell carrier does.

      I have an Acer tablet that is stuck on KitKat because Acer won't allow an upgrade. I have LG and Alcatel phones stuck on Android 5 because either Cricket or LG is withholding updates. I probably won't own a phone with Android 7 until 2021 or so.

    2. Agree. The fragemntation is ridiculous.

    3. Even Nexus and Pixel phones have to go through manufacturer and carrier testing before the OS upgrades and security patches are issued. My iPhone 5S is running the latest iOS version and update. Since Sept. 2013. I get an update every month or so, direct from Apple. In the 2? 3? times there was a minor issue with an update, it was corrected within a few days. A couple of weeks at the most. That's what you get with integrated systems. For me, security, privacy, maintainability and ease of use are more important than extra customization. And I didn't have to re-learn how to use every new iPhone, from 3S to 6S.

  5. I have a Phoenix 2 that is unlocked and running on T-Mobile. Anybody know an easy way to get the OTA update without an AT&T account? Thanks.

    1. Easy cheap way: borrow an AT&T or AT&T MVNO SIM from a friend, put it in the Phoenix 2, and check for updates. If it says phone is up to date, advance the clock a day and keep checking until it detects and starts downloading the N update.

    2. Thanks for the info. I can't think of anybody with AT&T but will ask around. On T-Mobile, the update does not download until overnight unless you are on WIFI. Is AT&T the same? Thanks again.

  6. Try taking it into bet buy. Often, they will update At&t devices free by temporarily installing an At&t sim card.

    1. Speak for yourself. i use this phone and i am glad i got the update.

    2. Enough people use the phone for them to give out an update or LG wouldn't have bother to release an update.

  8. Awesome that they are updating such a low end phone. I am on Red Pocket AT&T and I was able to update OTA without putting an AT&T sim card.

  9. Great little backup phone, this is just a bonus now.
