There is a lot of uncertainty right now regarding the Android 7.0 Nougat update for smartphones. This is because unless you own a Nexus handset, there’s a good chance that you’ll probably have to wait months before your OEM pushes out the latest version of Android to your handset, and it looks like OnePlus is no exception to this.
For those who are keeping track of Android’s distribution figures, the latest numbers are out. Note that while Android 7.0 Nougat has been released, we guess there aren’t that many devices that have installed it yet for it to appear on the Android developer dashboard, so for now Marshmallow is still listed as the latest OS.
The Nokia Lumia 525 was launched about 3 years ago, which means that by now and by the standards of the mobile industry, the handset could be considered practically ancient. If you did buy the phone and you have it lying around somewhere, or maybe if you’re still using it, how about breathing some new life into it?
Last month it was reported that Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s distribution numbers were at 13.3%. Now thanks to the latest numbers from Google, it looks like Marshmallow’s distribution numbers have risen and it is now at 15.2%, as you can see in the table and pie chart above, which is actually a pretty decent increase considering Android’s history.
If there is one thing that Android is notorious for, it be how slowly it takes for an update to make its way to Android handsets. This is usually why despite the latest update being released for months, it is usually its predecessor that has the highest market share. This is still looking to be the case in the latest figures this month, but we guess it’s still an improvement […]
These days, companies like Qualcomm and Samsung are introducing fast charging technology to their hardware. The idea is that while we are still quite a distance away from smartphones that can last an entire week without charging, having a phone that charges to 100% in an hour would be a welcome alternative.
It was only in the iPhone 6s that Apple finally made the move to include more RAM, bringing it up to 2GB. However this pales in comparison to Android phones in which 3-4GB seems to be the standard, plus there are rumors that this could soon be going up to as much as 6GB, but then again what’s the point of so much RAM if it isn’t being utilized properly, […]
Earlier this year in February, the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update was released to HTC’s One M9 on Sprint and T-Mobile. However the question many HTC users were asking is, when will the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update be making its way to HTC handsets on AT&T’s network? The good news is that it will be coming today.
A couple of weeks ago, BlackBerry began to push out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to BlackBerry Priv handsets that were purchased directly from the company. This meant that if you purchased the handset from a carrier, your update will be arriving later, but the good news is that T-Mobile customers did not have to wait too long.
Last month and last we checked, Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s distribution was sitting at 4.6%, but now according to the latest figures offered by Google on the Android Developer Dashboard, it looks like that number has since risen to 7.5%. Granted this is a pretty big leap but apparently it is still slow when compared to previous versions of Android, such as Lollipop.
If you bought either the Samsung Galaxy S5 Sport or the Galaxy Note Edge from Sprint back in 2014, we guess we can’t blame you if you’re a little worried that the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update might not make it to you guys, or that by the time it comes you might have gotten yourself a new phone (if you haven’t done so already).
Last week T-Mobile begun to roll out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for both the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, but what about the Galaxy S6 Edge+? After all on the same day itself, Verizon began pushing out the Marshmallow update to its version of the Galaxy S6 Edge+, but the good news is that the wait is over.
Google may have released Android 6.0 Marshmallow last year but there are still a lot of devices that are compatible with the new software but haven’t received an update yet. That’s really one of the biggest problems that users have with Android-powered devices unless they own Nexus devices which are the first to get updates straight from Google. Folks with Sony smartphones have been waiting as well but they will […]
As you might have heard, yesterday OnePlus’ Carl Pei stated that the Marshmallow update for the OnePlus was in the final stages of testing. We weren’t sure what that meant as it could be days or weeks before it would be ready to be released. However the good news is that OnePlus One users won’t have to wait too long.
