The Google Nexus 9 tablet is now receiving the Android 5.0.2 update, with no sight of Android 5.1 yet. This is a bit surprising as most Nexus devices have already received this update. Android 5.0.2 was sent out as a tablet only update by Google, right after Android 5.0.1, so it doesn’t bear much significance as far as features as concerned. This update is a meager 23.3MB in size, so clearly there won’t be a lot of changes on board. Google has remained tight lipped about the arrival of the Android 5.1 update for the Nexus...

Sony is said to be rolling out the Android 5.0.2 update for the Xperia Z2 and the Xperia Z3 series of devices in some regions. The update will introduce the build number 23.1.A.1.28. The Xperia Z3 Compact, Z3 Tablet Compact and the Xperia Z2 Tablet are also receiving the aforementioned update. The company has already started the rollout of the update in some regions for the Xperia Z2 and the Xperia Z3, so it was only a matter of time before other devices in the lineup also received the update. The relatively older Sony Xperia Z will...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is the latest recipient of the Android 5.0.2 Lollipop update. The update carries the build number T705ZHU1BOD3 and brings some crucial changes to the tablet. The update is only being sent out to the international cellular/LTE models of the tablets, with WiFi models already getting the update earlier. We must point out that only the unlocked models are getting the update as of now with carrier variants yet to receive the update, and frankly it might take a while. Once the Galaxy Tab S 8.4 is running Android...

  Chinese manufacturer Gionee seems to be prepping the launch of a new flagship according to a listing on TENAA, which is China’s equivalent of the FCC. The smartphone will be reportedly known as the Elife E8, succeeding the Elife E7. It is said that the handset will sport a 6 inch 2K resolution display, which means it’s the same size as the Nexus 6.

According to a new report, HTC had a below average April 2015 with its sales seeing a decline of 40% compared to the same period last year. The company made NT$22.07 billion ($719.24 million) in the April 2014, while this year, the Taiwanese manufacturer only managed to garner NT$13.54 billion ($439.95 million), which is a steep drop in revenues. It is being said that the lack of sales of the One M9 flagship was the primary reason for this sales decline, which is understandable and expected given the initial fan reactions from the company’s...

New figures reveal that Android 5.0 is all set to breach the 10% mark over the coming months. These figures reveal that Android 5.0 Lollipop is at 9% as of now while Android 5.1 is only on 0.7% of the Android phones and tablets around us. This goes to show that Android 5.0 has continued to grow over the past few months. The fact that most new handsets run this version by default also helps greatly in increasing these figures. Android 5.0 was only at 5% when these numbers were released last month, so the figure has almost doubled over...

The update changes the build number to N915TUVU1COD7, so make a note of that if you own the Galaxy Note Edge from T-Mobile. The carrier mentions that the update is at least 1.1GB in size, so ensure...

We’ve been hearing about the Galaxy Tab S2 for quite a while now. A report tells us that the device will break cover next month, sporting a slim design as rumored. It is being said that there will be 9.7 and 8 inch variants of this tablet, both with a thickness of just 5.4 mm, which is quite amazing for a tablet. The resolution should be Quad HD, much like the previous iteration, although there is word that it might be dropped to 2048 x 1536. It is being said that Samsung will use a new 64-bit Exynos chipset with Android 5.0.2 running...
