You r absolutely ryt rama. But the optimus g was first released in international markets such as sprint, At&t n their home grown korea in September 2012. But in india LG launched optimus g in February 27 2013 last year and optimus g pro in july last year too. So according to wht d hardware it has got completely deserve the updates. Google 18 months update policy is still hasn’t completed yet.. so Lg must look out into it..

@samrat Agreed that the optmius G and optmius G pro were released late in India but most companies provide updates of features or tweaks to devices on the basis of their international launch dates and not country specific launch dates.If you take into consideration international launch dates then the optimus G which launched in mid 2012 internationaly is very old and optimus G pro which launched in feb or march 2013 internationaly is fairly old.Considering how old Optimus G is LG must have decided to stop supporting it completely and in case of Optmius G pro,LG released an enhanced version… Read more »

Well its a vry nice n smart move by LG that they r gonna introducing popular knock on feature on these budget line up phones. But wht abt those flagships of early 2013 phones. I mean OPTIMUS G & OPTIMUS G PRO. They were the flagship phone having snapdragon s4 pro & snapdragon 600 respectively. Sounds stupid n funny a bit. Are they going to update their flagship to kitkat n knock on feature still remains a mystery. Hope LG wud do that. Coz ignoring or avoiding flagships isn’t a vry gud idea.

In case of LG optimus G pro there is an identical version of LG optimus G pro called LG optimus GX which comes with the knock on feature but the GX is currently limited to korea.In case of LG Optimus G the device was launched way back in 2012 so probably LG is not interested in supporting it anymore just like how HTC has abandoned the One X and One X+ with android 4.2.2.I agree with you that companies must provide extended support for falgship devices.
