Chances are that if you are not receiving updates it is only because your carrier doesn't give a rats ass about your satisfaction. Un-branded and unlocked devices typically receive updates shortly after new versions are released by Google. The order of major manufacturers' speed in updating software goes like this:
Motorola
HTC
Samsung
LG.

I highly recommend unlocked devices if you have the money to spend. However if you a poor schmuck like me and rely on contract devices, then you can either root and flash custom ROMS (say goodbye to warranty) or suffer in eternal damnation like the damn peasants that we are (according to carriers).

Korean version will be the first device to be updated.

Only then LG will work on Int'l version.

Of course US Residents(Tmo,att,verzion,sprint etc..) will get updates later than the int'l version due to carriers.

As far as I know, G2 int'l version got kitkat two or three months later the Korean version got it...

I know this so well because I have been watching LG from Optimus LTE2 (Currently using)... (G G Pro G2 GFlex Gpro2) - I am Korean
Motorola Motoroi(Korean version of milestone XT720 ) XT720
Motorola MotoQRTY(Korean version of Milestone ) XT854
HTC Desire A8181
HTC Desire HD A9191
LG Optimus LTE2 (LG-F160K)
LG G3 D855 (Singapore)

Samsung and HTC used to be notorious for slow updates, now LG has the tag. With any of the new Flagships (S series, M series, G series) updates will be in line with each other. My G2 got Kit Kat on T-Mobile before my wifes HTC M7 did.
