what's the full list of handsets?
a quick google suggests the G4 also has Smart Notice installed.
I've got all the smart notice stuff turned off and a different launcher running so I suppose I may be ok. Looks like I may have to CyanogenMod it to be sure. Thankfully LG and three in cooperation seem to be getting updates out for this on a regular basis. OH has an OEM version of the same phone - it'll be interesting to see when the fix comes out for that.
Dfletcher - what do you do to yours? I'm finding the build quality on mine to be fine.
I'm running an OEM unlocked G3 with latest stock firmware.
No you can't disable Smart Notice, I've just looked. Also it doesn't appear in LG's "Update Center" app nor Google Play so I'm not entirely sure how I'm supposed to patch it.
I had always intended to migrate to CyanogenMod in time (was waiting for the Marshmallow update to see what that was like first) but this sort of thing makes me wonder whether I should do that at the weekend.
On my stock unlocked G3 (software version V21a-EUR-XX), I can add and remove Smart Notice just like any other widget. Are you referring to the full-page Smart Bulletin instead? You can remove that from Settings->Display->HomeScreen.
But, like you, I can't see the Smart Notice update in the "Update Center". It's not helping that there is no "Check Now"/"Refresh" button in the App Updates panel, so all I can do is set it to check daily and wait.
My experience with Cyanogenmod (on Galaxy S2) is that it's great for scratching a nerdy itch and getting the latest Android fixes and features (continuing long after the OEM has stopped providing them) but bad for stability. Things may have changed since I tried it but, judging by a quick look at the G3 CM forums, they haven't changed much.

The widget, sure, but I can't disable the app in Application Settings like you can some other "built-in" apps.
"My experience with Cyanogenmod (on Galaxy S2) is that it's ... bad for stability."
Samsung's fault because of their horrendous record of not releasing code for their Exynos chipsets. The G3 with its Qualcomm-based chipset should be much better.

Oh I see, sorry.

OK. That's encouraging. Maybe when LG stop pushing updates I'll brave CM again.
I've just received the update to Smart Notice.
