I have Galaxy S5 it was on my phone to upgrade & wish I hadn't it's plain & my fb keeps crashing. Sprint told me to update fb but that'll just lead to other problems I see people complaining about. So don't be in a hurry to download Lollipop.
If you want an reply from SprintCare you need to do a separate post in the SG5 forums. Posting in a G2 forum does nothing since Lollipop isn't available for that device yet. From what I have read, there's major issues with the Lollipop update with the GS5 on all carriers, not just Sprint.
I have the lollipop 5.0 upgrade on my G3. My girlfriend has not seen anything yet on her G2 Yet. I really don't see any great change. Other than a few minor icon changes. Everything else is the same. My battery is the same crappy at best. My advice? Forget about it. Not worth the wait. The hype of lollipop is bigger than what was delivered.
Firmware version ZVG is currently being prepared (http://device.sprintpcs.com/LG/LS980-SPRINT/latest😞

I'm sure it can handle it . Even the Moto G is running it. I just hope we don't get some rough update to Lollipop and then they stop development on the LG G2 to focus on the G3 and G4.
The device handling it isn't always the issue. Sometimes it comes down to EOL for the device as well. If the OEM decides that they no longer want to support it, then they probably won't release an update for it.
I'll have to do some searching to are if there's any indication of EOL mentioned anywhere.
I believe the standard timeline for device support is 18 months. I THINK that is an agreement that manufacturers have with Google now but I am not 100% sure.
This update, with the exception of maybe a bug fix or something will probably be the last one the G2 sees.
My girlfriend has the G2. She just got the update to lollipop. It runs perfect on her phone. No problems that she has found yet. She did notice that there are a few changes but nothing to terrible. All in all runs really smooth on her G2.
