Best Android 6.0 Marshmallow smartphones – current and future

Plenty of chatter, little to no action. That’s how we can sum up the Marshmallow facts thus far, with numerous device manufacturers signaling both officially and unofficially they’re ready to widely adopt the newest Android flavor, yet the early December distribution report showing 6.0 is barely more prevalent than version 2.2. Still, we’ve managed to

Best affordable Android smartphones already on Lollipop

According to official Android distribution numbers harvested by Google during the week leading to May 4, a measly 9.7 percent of all devices with the world’s most popular mobile OS inside run 5.0 or 5.1 Lollipop. That’s certainly disappointing, given 5.0 source code was freely disseminated back in early November 2014 and Android M’s “final”

T-Mobile Has A New Software Update Tracking Page

If you have ever bought a phone directly from a carrier, you know that it takes a while for software updates to be released for certain devices.

Android 4.4 KitKat for LG Optimus G Pro starts rolling out in Korea

LG is this close to wrapping up G2’s global Android 4.4 KitKat rollout, as international models have started receiving the update earlier this week, and AT&T and T-Mobile variants stateside a little earlier. That still leaves Sprint and Verizon versions in the dark, but the timing’s up to the carriers there, so LG is ready

Android 4.4 KitKat Update Rundown: January Edition

You know, it’s funny. And sort of sad. Every time Google starts work on a brand new Android version, more so as we near a fresh release and especially immediately after the rollout, we get our hopes up and expect things will be different. Yet they never are. Meanwhile, fragmentation flourishes, the life cycle of

LG Optimus G Scores Android 4.4 KitKat Update Already… In Estonia

Remember when LG France made that atrocious blunder and unintentionally confirmed the Optimus G was due for an Android 4.4 KitKat update in October? Well, obviously, the one year-old 4.7-incher was never supposed to score the chocolaty software treat so early, as 4.4 ultimately became official on October 31. Yet believe it or not, LG’s
