Verizon is updating the LG Revolution for it to deserve its last name. The new phone may not have Android 4.0, but it has another noteworthy feature: a remote diagnostic tool.
Now, whenever users are having trouble with their phones, they can call Verizon and have their staff fix the problem.
The Verizon staff remotely logs in and controls your handset for troubleshooting purposes. This is common with computers, but a marked first in terms of mobile phones.
The update also includes new bug fixes such as an improved AVI playback over HDMI and a calendar widget that will now display the correct month for November. These said advantages make the diagnostic tool worth downloading, but some users are still skeptic due to privacy issues.
The technical professional may just have the purpose of just fixing a bug, but he will also have access to all the files in your mobile phone. Even if this was the case, Verizon may still offer this feature in more phones in the future.
