    I bought an lg g3 d855 was sim free, new I'm on o2 pay and go.( I updated to marshmallow through lg pc suite) The problem is this, I can't get google play apps to auto update, also the notifications don't usually show when updates are available, the apps will only update when phone is connected to pc or charger through usb cable.

    The updates for apps are available and I can go into the play store and manually update the apps there. I have update any time checked, and individual app tick boxes auto updates checked, I have tried many things, including a factory reset, resetting google account, clear cache, data of play store, play services, download service, reset wifi, and more besides, and still the apps won't auto update, and usually the notification doesn't show when updates are available.

    The strange thing is though, when I connect the phone to a charger or pc, suddenly the apps will update there and then, immediately, its like they are stuck, unless I manually update or plug usb in, which isn't convenient.
    Can anyone help me resolve this issue?
    Why would the google play auto update function only work when its connected through usb?
    Lastly I have a good wifi connection, and data is turned on.



The LG G3 was the 2014 flagship device for LG, and was one of the first smartphones on the market with a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 display. It featured a Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 13MP.
