OnePlus Actively Working On Android 7.0 Update For The OnePlus 3
There is a lot of uncertainty right now regarding the Android 7.0 Nougat update for smartphones.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow’s Distribution Figures Climb To 18.7%
For those who are keeping track of Android’s distribution figures, the latest numbers are out.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow Distribution Numbers Now At 13.3%
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.

Android Marshmallow Memory Leak To Be Fixed In A Future Release
It was only in the iPhone 6s that Apple finally made the move to include more RAM, bringing it up to 2GB.
