Earlier this week, we found out Telus had delayed updating the LG G3 to Marshmallow for an unknown period of time. Thankfully, the G3 is now scheduled to get upgraded by the end of March.

According to the latest version of Telus’ software update schedule, the G3 will receive Android 6.0 on March 29.

The Galaxy S6 edge+, Galaxy Note 5, and Galaxy S6 edge have had their scheduled upgrade to Marshmallow bumped back to March 26, March 25 and April 4, respectively. In addition, the 5.5-inch Moto X Play is expected to receive Marshmallow on April 21. The Moto E and first generation Moto G, which were just added to the list, will likely get Marshmallow in and around March 22 and April 7, respectively.

Finally, the Nexus 6P, Nexus 6 and Nexus 5 will receive their monthly security update on April 4.

    I am thinking I might never see marshmallow on my Fido S6, there is nothing not even an expected date.

      Just flash the Telus firmware and change the CSC code to Fido. All Canadian firmwares are exactly the same, the device customizes itself based on said CSC code.

      Should of read your comment. We talk the same language

      Thanks, something I will look at if by the end of March they don’t have a schedule.

    Ian, I noticed that the Moto E is now on the list for the first time. Although the model is not specifically mentioned it must be the Moto E 2nd gen (XT1527) that came out in 2015. This is great news for all Moto E 2nd gen owners, originally Motorola was not going to update this phone to Marshmallow but public outcry changed their mind. Just a FYI.

    Telus is never punctual. Sick and tired of their delays, it was supposed to be March 9, then 13, then 16 and now 25. Make no mistake, it will be pushed even more, 25 is a statutory holiday.

      Right there with you. I’m going crazy waiting for the Note 5 update.

    • Logan

      I hear you i’ve been waiting for this G3 update for ages… If it doesn’t happen I will root and install marshmallow!

  • OttoVonBismarck

    Haha hilarious watching people squirm over a software update Get a life

    • Kristen

      If that’s what you enjoy in life, maybe you should take your own advice lol

    Samsung is doing a great job with the updates this year.

    I wonder about S5 or Note 4 owners. They must be so happy with their new OS updates.

    • Mr Barkers

      It’s not Samsung, it’s the carriers that take their sweet time.

    Fingers crossed for the G3 Marshmallow update, if LG comes up with BS to not update, then this G3 will be the last LG phone I will buy, already looking at Huawei phones…..

      LG Canada is horrible for updates, in other regions the G2 got Lollipop but not in Canada.

    • Varga Levente

      I really hope that the G3 will get the MM. I have a D852, but i live in Hungary… Before this phone i had a G2 international, that got the LP in last year spring…

  • Freddy Hajoong Jeong

    lol google has released android N preview for developers and yet still running on lollipop…

  • Brad Fortin

    CRISIS AVERTED.

    Another reason why I’m glad I upgrade once or twice a year.

    I don’t know what the G3 experience is like on Telus but my Fido G3 is often laggy especially when accessing the control panel to adjust WiFi settings. Sometimes I have to wait close to 10 seconds for a response. Similarly switching apps can be rather slow. One of the reasons why I was eagerly awaiting the Marshmallow update. Finally got fed up and installed CM13 instead.

    US company Verizon should come to Canada to teach Canadian carrier lesson. Enough with monopolies!!

  • Gumbopudding

    Heard they had to delay the note 5 update because some early adopters were installing it backwards and it locked up their phone.

    • Comrade Yeti

      I lol’d! Good one!

  • jay

    The biggest problem is that almost nobody has a change to buy a phone unlocked in Canada. Like the iphone. Thats the biggest problem.

  • Denis

    Any chance that Koodo will update the G3 on the same date as well?

  • Habs Killa

    Update rolling out to Moto X Play

  • Brad Forbes

    Bell Just released Android M for the G3

  • JaySea

  • Mehdi Abassi
