Gooligan is a malware that hides within Android applications found mainly outside the Play Store, but it has recently been found that multiple apps available on the Play Store are also infected by it. The malware utilizes two vulnerabilities (Vroot and Towelroot) prevalent in pre-Marshmallow Android builds to root devices and gain access to email information, as well as authentication tokens, including those of your Google account. Gooligan then uses this unauthorized access to install applications from the Play Store itself. This of course, is done to increase the revenue associated with in-app ads. Additionally, the afflicted accounts are made to leave a 5-star review for the concerned app, without the user even being aware of what's going on.


If your device is running on Android Lollipop or an even lower version of the Android OS, Gooligan can affect your device. The secret malware was found by a cyber security firm called Check Point and they have since reported that Gooligan can access Gmail, Google Photos, Google Docs, G Suite, Google Play and Google Drive on all the 1 million plus devices that it affects right now. In response to the report, Adrian Ludwig, head of Android Securities, has explained that so far, the malware, which is a variant of the previously discovered Ghost Push, has not shown any intent to steal information and has instead been only associated with promoting in-app revenue through falsified reviews and unauthorized app installations. Google has since revoked all affected tokens and has banned multiple affected apps from the Play Store.


In the words of Check Point, "Gooligan potentially affects devices on Android 4 Jelly Bean and KitKat, and 5 Lollipop, which is over 74 percent of in-market devices today. About 57 percent of these devices are located in Asia and about nine percent are in Europe,"

Galaxy Note5

 

Yesterday, Samsung has just launched its new phablet smartphone, Galaxy Note5 in India at a local event in New Delhi. Priced at INR 53,900 ($800) for the 32GB model, and INR 59,900 ($890) for the 64GB model.

 

The Galaxy Note5 is the latest in Samsung's line of Note devices. Internally, the phone is quite similar to the previously launched Galaxy S6 but features a larger 5.7-inch QHD Super AMOLED display, 4GB RAM, bigger 3000mAh battery, and Fast Wireless Charging. It also has the S Pen stylus that the series is known for.

Compared to the previous Galaxy Note 4, the Note5 loses the faux leather back finish, instead opting for the new glass back similar to the S6. The battery is also sealed in this time and there isn't expandable memory, again like the S6. The Note5, however, loses the IR blaster, that both the S6 and the Note 4 have.

 

The Note5 will be available in Black Sapphire, Gold Platinum and Silver Titanium starting September,20th.

HTC One M7

 

HTC has officially announced its final list of devices that will receive Android 6.0 Marshmallow update in the period starting from the end of this year (2015) to early next year (2016). The list included One M8 and M9 and lots of other variants.

 

Unfortunately, the official list didn't include the HTC One M7 (2013), the first One family flagship. The Taiwanese company decided to Cancel the Marshmallow update to the One M7 as the device's support has ended already.

 

We would like to remind you that the HTC One M7 and One M7 Dual-SIM variants has already got Android 5.0/5.1 updates with all the security and bug fixes.

This is the same video player that's built inside HTC's Sense UI layer, with multiple format decoding, gesture controls (two-finger swipes act as FF and RW for example), streaming, still image capturing, and subtitle support. The player also allows a few simple editing tweaks like trimming and playback speed adjustment for slow-motion videos.

 

You can download the HTC video player version 6.5 APK from the link below, or wait until the update hits your HTC device via Google Play Store.

Just as Samsung was setting up to restart the sale of the Galaxy Note 7 smartphones with a new batch of safe devices, a new report from China has come in where a customer in Guangzhou is claiming that his brand new and "safe" Galaxy Note 7 exploded within a day from the date of purchase. Bloomberg reports that Hui Renjie, a 25 year old man from Guangzhou, China, got minor burns on his fingers after his Note 7 exploded. Ironically, it allegedly also burned his Apple MacBook in the process!


According to Renjie, someone from Samsung did contact him after the incident and asked to remove the device, but he declined in favour of going public with the incident. In reply to the incident regarding the exploded smartphone which was supposedly marked as safe, Samsung has issued the following reply via e-mail.


"We are currently contacting the customer and will conduct a thorough examination of the device in question once we receive it,"


It should be noted that Samsung had excluded China from the global recall of the Note 7, by citing the reason that the ones sold in China sport batteries that are different from the hazardous ones supplied by Samsung SDI. We will soon find out if this is an isolated incident, a faked one or if the Galaxy Note 7 really is still as "explosive" as before!

As experts will frequently tell you, megapixel count on a smartphone camera does not amount to much when it comes to picture quality unless it is supported by other more important features. Those important features include a larger sensor, aperture size, quality of the lens, shutter and focus speed, pixel size and much more. The latest flagships from Samsung were built while keeping these points in mind as the Korean company has opted for a 12.1 megapixel sensor with blazing fast autofocus instead of the 16 megapixel sensor from last year


The Galaxy S6 is no slouch in the camera department either and its camera is still among the best smartphone cameras that are available in the market today. However, on being compared with the S7's autofocus speed, the S6 lost by a significant margin. Each time the viewfinder was moved on both the phones, the Galaxy S7 managed to shift and autofocus on its subjects much faster. This impressive feat became even more awesome when the Galaxy S7's autofocus was found to be just as remarkable in low-light scenarios as well. During the unveiling of the S7 and S7 Edge at the MWC 2016 on February 21, Samsung had actually prepared a low-light setup to let people experience how well the S7's camera performs in poor lighting. We will know more when the S7 series starts reaching customers on March 11.




You would think that Samsung would by now be able to decipher what exactly made the Note 7 catch fire, but you would be wrong. Lithium ion batteries do have the potential to explode or spontaneously combust if something goes wrong inside and that was exactly what Samsung and everyone else thought the problem was. However, it was apparently not exactly what they thought it was. What the problem actually was, remains a mystery still today!


According to Samsung, "We recognized that we did not correctly identify the issue the first time and remain committed to finding the root cause."
"Our top priority remains the safety of our customers and retrieving 100% of the Galaxy Note 7 devices in the market."


Experts examining the smartphones and the scenarios are of the opinion that there could be multiple reasons responsible for the explosions and one of the potential culprits could be that the battery case that wasn't sufficiently big to accommodate the battery of the Note 7. A finer problem could lie in the software of the phone itself, which may have failed to direct battery interactions with other hardware parts inside the phone properly. Whatever the reason is, Samsung needs to clarify it publicly, if it hopes to win back at least some of the trust that it has lost due to the incident.

Samsung has just made it official that the exploding Galaxy Note 7 smartphones are a real problem which according to their research and reports, may happen to one in every 42,000 units. Samsung Mobiles president Koh also stated that they have so far found 35 incidents around the world in which the Note 7 had shown signs of excessive heating, catching fire or even exploding while being charged. In light of these incidents, the smartphone will be recalled all around the world as a safety measure and as expected, sales have stopped for now as well.


Samsung hopes to replace all the Note 7 smartphones to their customers in roughly two week's time. The battery related problem will perhaps be solved by the South Korean giant over time, but a massive damage has already been done. The exploding smartphones have not only put a blemish on an otherwise perfect series of Note devices, but the bad reputation will definitely affect the sales of Samsung smartphones in general, especially when Apple is about to unveil the iPhone 7 this month.

It is official now as Samsung has confirmed today that the company has indeed started with the mass scale production of an industry first 10nm application processor. This will replace the current 14nm FinFET processors and bring in better power efficiency along with faster performance to flagship devices in 2017. In spite of being based on a similar 3D transistor structure as its 14nm predecessor, the smaller 10LPE manufacturing process allows for an increase of 27-percent in performance and 40-percent in energy efficiency.


If you are wondering when it will be released and which processors it will power, it is unclear as of now, since no comment was made on that subject. All that is known is the fact that it will come early in 2017. Many were of the opinion that the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 would be the one to utilize this 10nm SoC, but other reports are suggesting that Qualcomm is shifting towards partnering with TSMC in manufacturing the SD 830. What is almost certain is that the 10LPE SoC from Samsung will be powering its own brand of Exynos 8895 processors, which will likely debut with the Samsung Galaxy S8.

As expected, Verizon has now joined AT&T and T-Mobile in the decision to stop selling the Galaxy Note 7, at least for a while. It was quite expected as the news reports about new and safe Galaxy Note 7s exploding have been piling up since the last week. In addition to that, various reports are also suggesting that Samsung themselves may have halted the production process of the phablet for now. The good news is that if you own a Galaxy Note 7 then all the three carriers are offering a free replacement, as long as the value of the new smartphone is equal to or less than that of the Note 7. The offer is applicable on both older models, as well as the replacement units.


After the Southwest Airlines incident and the bedroom fire in Lexington, Sprint is the only major carrier in the US which is still continuing to sell the Note 7. Although we would advise against buying a Note 7 at this time, to be truthful, it would be very hard to find one as well. Even if you do however, hold onto your money at least until Samsung comes out in the open with a statement.

Samsung has just made it official that they have an interesting exchange plan for the people who bought the Galaxy Note 7. However the plan is only available in South Korea as of now. A lot of the customer base wasn't satisfied in the way Samsung handled the entire debacle, but hopefully, this plan will convince some of them to stay loyal to Samsung.


According to the plan, if you exchange the Note 7 for a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge, you will have to pay half of the original price of that particular handset and even that can be paid via instalments over a period of twelve months. The contract further extends to include that you will have to opt for the Galaxy S8 or some other flagship grade smartphone that Samsung releases next year at full price. When you decide to exchange the S7/S7 Edge for the S8 next year, the contract can be renewed in a way so that the remainder of the instalments will extend up to an additional period of 12 months, until the full price of the S8 is paid off.


While this is a good offer for Samsung loyalists, it might take quite a devotee to opt for a smartphone that one has no idea about or what the competition will be offering at that point of time. Will you go for it if it became available in your country?

If you are into mobile gaming, Samsung has a Galaxy Game Pack for you, provided of course, that you using an S7 or S7 Edge. You can call it a Christmas promo or just rewards for staying loyal to the Samsung brand after the Note 7 disaster, but if you play games like Clash of Kings and Hearthstone, you are entitled to receive a number of exclusive in-game content like coins, credits, cards etc. This offer is brought to the S7/S7 Edge users by Samsung through partnerships with the likes of Electronic Arts, Ubisoft, Gameloft, Blizzard Entertainment, Goodgame Studios and many others.


The Google Play Store has all the freebies associated with the current offer as well, instead of being exclusively available on the Galaxy Apps Store as we expected. Check the list of games that fall under the Galaxy Game Pack below.


• Clash of Kings
• Hearthstone
• Asphalt 8: Airborne
• Need for Speed: No Limits
• Olympus Rising
• Empire: Four Kingdoms
• Genies and Gems
• Vainglory
• Nonstop Knight
• HIT
• Plants vs Zombies Heroes
• Hungry Shark World
• Marvel Contest of Champions
• Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes

Samsung had only recently concluded its research on why the Note 7 started to catch fire and we already have a new report which is suggesting that in light of the new findings, Samsung has decided to delay its previously scheduled release of the S8 from February, 2017 to April, 2017. In case you are wondering as to what exactly Samsung has found which resulted in the company taking such a big decision; know that the Korean electronics giant has held that information from a public revelation, as of now. Nevertheless, if you can't wait for Samsung to release the official statement, take a look at what Instrumental had independently unveiled two weeks ago as the cause of the Note 7 related fires.


The source further details that the exclusive launch event will be held in New York City sometime during the month of April. Apparently, the roughly two month's delay will be utilized by Samsung to gain the confidence of its customer base back through a number of campaigns and strategies. At the global strategy meeting that is currently being held at the headquarters of Samsung in Seoul, South Korea, President Koh Dong-jin has once again stressed on the importance of keeping things under a tight lid, as well as maximizing security on every front prior to the release of the Galaxy S8.

Samsung Music will no longer be on any of the company's smartphones from now on as they have joined forces with Google to make the Google Play Music app default for all future Samsung smartphones. It cannot exactly be said that this would be a huge loss; given there was nothing very special about Samsung's music player to begin with!


The tie-up has also resulted in all S8, S8+ and Tab S3 owners receiving premium Google Play Music services without any charges, for a period of three months. Additionally, owners of all the three devices will be allowed to upload and stream as many as 100,000 songs from their offline collections. The limit on regular subscribers on the other hand continues to remain at 50,000 songs as always.


All the other expected premium and free features of the Google Play Music app like free radio, mood based intelligent music suggestion, podcasts, streaming, etc. will be available right out of the box, as long as you decide to purchase any one (or multiple) of the aforementioned Samsung devices. YouTube Red will also be a part of the three-month deal for the Samsung users. In case you really did like the Samsung Music Player, it is still available for download from both the Galaxy and the Google Play Store.

Galaxy S7

 

A New Galaxy flagship is coming along with a new set of leaks roo. Some leaked documents from Samsung HQ in Korea showed that the company is currently in the middle testing stages of the Galaxy S7.

 

Codenamed "Jungfrau" the Galaxy S7 might see a month or two faster development schedule than the Galaxy S6, courtesy of an improved project management process, dubbed "Agile." This could very well jibe with the previous rumors that Galaxy S7 will be ready in the second half of the year, though it might not exactly hit the shelves in time for Christmas, but rather be announced earlier than usual when 2016 hits.

 

S7 leak

 

Samsung Galaxy S7 will be packing the latest Snapdragon 820 and running Google's upcoming Android M release. However, The Korean giant is still developing a firmware build with Android M v5.2 for the S7 based on the latest developer previews (Google didn't release the final M version, yet).

Android Lollipop is now on over 300 million android users, before the Marshmallow arrives in the near future. Google's not-quite-current operating system now accounts for 23.5 percent of active Android users, a healthy 2.5-point boost from what you saw just one month ago.


Currently, there are about 30% still on Jelly Bean, and about 38% KitKat, but it's clear that all those new devices and upgrades are starting to add up. The real question is whether or not that momentum will last.

Marshmallow is arriving relatively quickly, and shouldn't suffer from the early performance and battery life woes that kept some people from upgrading last year. If the newer release catches on quickly, Lollipop might not reach the lofty adoption rates of its predecessors.


More info: Android Developer


 


lollipop

 

Google released the Android distribution report for April,2015. The latest report reveals Lollipop has 5.4% of the world's Android devices, five months after its source code was made available.

 

android

 

There's some good growth for sure, seeing that Lollipop was up and running on just 3.3% of devices in March. The number should keep growing, as device manufacturers are shipping tons of Android 5.0 devices, and current high-end smartphones all come running Lollipop out of the box.

Google

 

One of the first things that Google announced at its big event today is that Android just keeps on growing. Google CEO Sundar Pichai said on stage that at the moment, there are more than 1.4 billion active Android devices in the world. "Active" in this context means that they've been used within the last 30 days.

 

This number is up 40%, from 1 billion, back in June of 2014. Keep in mind that this doesn't represent the total number of Android devices that were ever sold, it's just those that are still active, or have been so in the last month.

 

The Google Play Store is now being used on more than 1 billion devices. Again, this means 1 billion phones and tablets have used Google's content store in the last 30 days. So it appears that the Play Store either isn't installed or simply isn't used on a staggering 400 million devices out there.

 


Whatsapp

 

WhatsApp, the well-known popular mobile messaging service has crossed another major milestone recently. The company CEO announced on Twitter that WhatsApp is now service over 600 million monthly active users.

 

The CEO was quick to point out that it's active users, that is, people actually using the service everyday, and not just registered users, which would be a bigger number but a lot of those people won't actually be using the service. This makes the milestone all the more impressive and shows once again just how popular WhatsApp is.

 

 

 

 


Facebook

 

Facebook for Android is now being Updated every week with bug fixes and New features, You can Now try out the latest App version of Facebook For Android version 20.0.0.0.7 Alpha Build. This Alpha version will show you what Facebook is preparing for you in the next final version, take a sneak peak at the new features and User interface changes. Current Facebook stable version is 18.0 and Beta version is 19.0 and you can roll-back to the official version or beta version at anytime via Play store.

 

Facebook

 

The New Facebook version 20 packs some minor UI changes, lots of bug fixes and performance improvements. So you'll be running a version that is supposed to be released 3 months from Now.

 

After downloading the latest Alpha build, Facebook suggests turning on automatic updates as it plans on updating the app a few times a week. Doing so will ensure you're always running the latest version. The APK file provided below is the official APK from Facebook ALPHA program and hasn't been modified.

Xiaomi is about to launch a new variant of its budget phablet, the Redmi Note 3. Although the original Redmi Note 3 was showcased back in November, the upcoming version is better. The Mediatek Helio X10 SoC was quite a beast in the budget segment in 2015, but now it is going to be replaced with an even more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 SoC.


The second change that Xiaomi is about to offer with its new Note is a significantly improved 16 megapixel camera sensor with f2.0 aperture, which is going to replace the previous generation 13 megapixel sensor on its back. These are significant changes that will enhance both the camera quality as well as the overall performance of the Redmi Note 3, both of which are usually high priorities for most smartphone users.


There will be a 16GB model with 2GB Ram and a 32GB model with 3GB RAM just as with the current Note 3. The 4050mAh battery should be more than sufficient to power the device for a whole working day at least, if not more. As far as pricing is concerned, we only know that the 16GB/2GB variant will be available for around $150 or RMB 999.


Among other Asian countries, Xiaomi has decided to launch the Redmi Note 3 v2.0 in India. In fact, a competition is on its way online right now as 100 Indian fans will get a chance to win the Redmi Note 3 if they can complete the 100 "missions" given to them. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 was already a great device within the budget segment and from what we know so far, it seems like it's about to get much better.

Goodbye Evleaks, He was the one who first shared to the world, among other things, that Nokia is working on an Android phone, and it was he who showed us the first images of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z2. He gave us the first image of the HTC One M8 and was first to show the Nvidia Shield Tablet to the world. Most recently, he's been showing us a stream of images of the yet unannounced Samsung Galaxy F.

 

Evan Blass, the man behind the infamous Twitter channel, @evleaks, has been steadily supplying the phone industry with fresh leaks of images of yet unannounced devices. Tech journalists and phone manufacturers have been following his Twitter with equal eagerness in the past two years.

 

 

Evan however has just announced that he's about to retire @evleaks, which currently has about 187,000 followers. However he said that he's unable to properly monetize it and with his health progressively deteriorating, he feels like he needed to prepare better for the future.

iphone 6

 

Apple is doing good on the worldwide market shipments. KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a decent track record on Apple-related industry predictions, has estimated that Apple has sold more than 73 million iPhones in the last quarter (Q4,2014) only which includes about 42 million iPhone 6 and 16 million iPhone 6 Plus sold.

 

For Q1,2015, Kuo is expecting the figure to be around 61.6 million, up 41.1% year-on-year, but 15.6% less than the previous quarter, something which isn't exactly surprising given the fact that it was a holiday quarter.

 

iphone

 

As for the iPad, total Q4, 2014 shipments stood at around 21.4 million, down 17.8% year-on-year, but up 73.8% compared to Q3. That number is expected to be around 10 million for the ongoing quarter.

The 2016 war of wearables devices is about to start. After Samsung leaked its upcoming Gear S2 Round smartwatch on its offiical website, Motorola has leaked the successor of the Moto 360 smartwatch on Twitter. The company posted a render of a mysterious wearable device appeared in one of the manufacturer's official tweets earlier today [The tweet has been removed!].

 

The unannounced smartwatch features a round body, but different button placement than the original Moto 360. While we were preparing this post, Motorola removed the tweet, thus further suggesting that we saw something we weren't originally supposed to. One of the rumored names in Moto 720 or Moto 360s.

 

Curiously, the leaked smartwatch appears to feature a screen that's not fully circular - just like the first-generation Moto 360. We certainly hope that this will not be the case when the new Moto 360 debuts, as both LG and Samsung have competitors with fully circular displays already available or on the way.

It seems like every year we hear that mobile gaming will take over all forms of games and will reign supreme. While this isn't likely to happen, one thing we do know though is that it fuels a lot of people's entertainment, makes huge levels of cash for the industry, and provides innovation that pushes games to new levels.


The rise of mobile gaming has been impressive to say the least. Ever since people played Snake on their old Nokia phones, the potential has been there for the handheld device to offer more to gamers. With the improvements of technology and the rise of both iOS and Android, the rise of the app and most importantly gaming apps have taken hold and we are in the age of mobile gaming.


Mobile gaming is now a billion-dollar industry, and has shaped a new model of the way people pay for games. There are a lot of games now that are "Freemium" games, allowing the player to download and play for free, before adding money into the game when they needed it. The key of course is that it is purely the gamers choice whether to add more money into the game with in-game transactions. The thing is though, this idea works.


If the game is good enough to hook the players, it seems that they are more than willing to make in-game purchases to add to the fun they are experiencing. Many in the industry are noticing the potential for profit here, and that in turn fuels the creation of better and more entertaining games that will in turn make more money that can then be put into the production and evolution of games.


This is what fuels gaming today, and the fact that mobile devices can also be used for both virtual and augmented reality show that these devices are still at the forefront of gaming innovation. Just looking at Pokémon Go as an example, you can see just where the technology in the phone is now taking the player, and that is into an even more mobile world.


Mobile gaming on devices has given the players unrestricted access to games while on the movie. Whether it is playing a game like Candy Crush Saga or one of its clones, or even playing roulette on a UK mobile casino while on their dinner breaks, the players are doing so on the movie. It is this flexibility in mobile gaming that is fueling the success of it, and changing the way we game.


While mobile gaming may not take over the world of gaming as we know it, it now has its fair share of the market, and is here to stay. Gaming is hugely popular now in all forms, that includes mobile gaming, and there is one thing for sure, this is a very good time to be a gamer, never have we had such a choice of ways to game as we do now.

The new mobile apps and mobile software have entirely changed the course of mobile gaming. The more the casinos adopt new technologies and betting games, there has been a great influence on the casino industry. In the following article, UK based Sailor Bingo website has summarised how the casino industry has evolved and transformed over the years.


Statistics of Mobile Casino Industry


• According to an online casino report, the revenue from online betting was estimated at $4 billion in the year 2012. However, currently, the casino industry generates $41.4 billion worth of profits through online betting.


• Some of the statistics show that the mobile casino industry is worth $100 billion alone.


• According to an online report published in one of the reputed websites, it is predicted that the tablet-gambling industry alone will reach a commendable mark of £13 billion worth by 2019.


• In 1986, the technology took the horseracing to a next level with betting stores offering drinks and Televisions showing the live coverage of horse races. There were also fruit machines and fixed- odds betting available for the players.


1. Mobile Apps and New Mobile Games


The new age of Smartphones has seen a rapid growth in the online casino sector. There are many inventions in the mobile casino gaming to suit the requirements of the players. It is easier for users to access their favourite casino games on the fingertips. Android and Apple stores are now having a wide range of casino games which are compatible with any kind of device. The statisticians of the mobile gaming industry have estimated that 56% of the USA's population prefer playing games on mobile devices rather than desktops or laptops.


2. From Real Time Slot Machines to Video Slots


There was a time when players had to visit the land- based casinos or betting shops in order to play their stakes on slot machines. Now the technology brings the experience of casinos from your homes and on your mobile phones and desktops. You can choose to play from thousands of themed- based video slots at any of the mobile casinos. You can place your stakes on the video slots and spin the reels to get real money wins.


3. Online Betting and Betting Shops


There are many options available for the players to place their stakes on horse races using the online mediums of betting. However, there is a risk of misusing of funds or identity theft involved in using online betting mediums for betting. When you visit a bookmaker, you can purchase the betting tickets on real time basis and they only deal with cash. Hence, you can have 100% security that your funds in the safe hands.

Facebook Messenger already had it, and now Google Messenger has GIF support too. Additionally, the GIF support is now built into the default Google Keyboard, although, no other app supports the feature as of now. While you are reading this, keep in mind that the feature is only be available on your phone if you are running Android 7.1 Developer Preview.


Just in case you are running the Developer Preview on one of the compatible devices, here's how you can use the GIF button in Google Messenger. Once you bring up the keyboard, locate and tap on the emoticon button. Now tap on the GIF button to bring up the GIF menu with a few highlighted choices like "Thank you," "Sorry" or "Wink." If the desired category cannot be found, simply type in the right category and search for it.


Although it is solely compatible with Messenger at the moment, we are pretty sure that support for more apps such as Gmail, Hangout and may be a few popular third party apps too will arrive in the final version of the Android Nougat 7.1 OS. The "Image Keyboard Support" is a nice new addition to the upcoming OS, albeit a non-essential one.

HTC Nexus 9 Lollipop 5.1.1 update

 

This is the first time to see a Google Nexus device lacking behind in Android updates!... The HTC Nexus 9 users has just received their official Android 5.0.2 Lollipop OTA update, while other Nexus devices like Nexus 10 is getting Lollipop 5.1.1 update.

 

Nexus 9

 

Nexus 9 update to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop is on its way to Nexus 9 owners, and it's around 23MB in size. After applying it, you'll be on build number LRX22L. As the minor version number jump from 5.0.1 to 5.0.2 implies, this one should be all about the bug fixes.

 

VIA, OTA Package

Nexus 6

 

Google always puts an LED notification lights on its Nexus devices, but it doesn't always put them to use. In fact, Google doesn't always even let anyone know that the LED exists in the device at all. That's what has happened with the Nexus 6, which it turns out has its own Hidden LED notification light... SUPRISE!, you can't do much with it unless you're a root user, thought!

 

It turns out that the Nexus 6 has an LED light in a somewhat odd place behind the top speaker grille. It is a full RGB LED light, but as noted before, you can't use it unless you have rooted your system.

 

Nexus 6

 

And, even then, the options are basically non-existent because there is no software to properly take advantage of it. Light Flow can't interact with it correctly, and reports are saying no matter what color you choose with it, the LED displays green.

You are probably familiar with the newly introduced Always On displays already, so let's get into the battle of the flagships right away. However, keep in mind that the LG G5 used while comparing the two was a pre-production unit.


Visibility or clarity


If you are outdoors and the weather isn't too sunny then you would be hard pressed to see a difference between the two Always On displays as they are both perfectly visible, even from a distance. If however, the condition outside is quite sunny and you are trying to check out the time, date and notifications, the LG G5 loses by a huge margin to the S7. The S7's AMOLED display is simply brighter, more defined and clear compared to the IPS-LCD screen of the G5. In fact, you will need to look at the G5 at almost a 90-degree angle under bright conditions to even make out what's on the secondary display, while the S7 offers much better viewing angles.


Capability


In terms of usefulness, the LG G5 will win simply because of the fact that its secondary display supports notifications from third party applications as well, whereas the S7 is only capable of showing notifications from Samsung apps.


Customization


Samsung has added a lot more customizability to its secondary screen when compared to its South Korean competitor. The S7's Always On display supports stock pictures and skins for clocks as well as the calendar. The notifications change their place of appearance on their own as well to prevent screen burn-ins (a result of static images being shown on a particular space for too long a time at a single stretch). The only significant customization that LG offers is the ability to add a personal signature that can replace the traditional time display.


Although we love LG's equal treatment of all apps installed on it, credit must be given to Samsung for making better hardware and adding more customization. The S7 would win this hands down if only it supported third party apps like the G5, but as it stands now, the better Always On display among the two must be decided by the user and his/her priorities. So, which of these features are more important to you?

Note 4

 

DisplayMate, a renowned company specializing in display tests, has praised the Galaxy Note 4's AMOLED in a detailed review. The 5.7" 2560 x 1440 pixel display of the Note 4 packs a pixel density of 518ppi, but that's not its only feature as Samsung has also worked a lot on evolving the quality of its OLEDs.

 

The review is based on quite a lot of technically-oriented tests and its verdict is that the Note 4's display is currently the best in the market. It is better than the AMOLED on the Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Tab S.

 

AMOLEDs have the reputation for being oversaturated and generally not accurate with colors. Not the one on the Galaxy Note 4 though, as under its Basic screen mode, it has the most accurate colors for the sRGB/Rec.709 spec of all smartphones and tablets the company has tested. The phone's Photo Mode bumps the screens compatibility to display the Adobe RGB gamut, which is 17% larger than the sRGB/Rec.709 standard.

 

Viewed at an angle, Note 4's display suffers minor, 19% decrease in brightness and small white point color shift. As to be expected, the primary color shifts are at their worse at 30 degrees, but with a rating of 6.6 JNCD, it is rated at very good. The screen impresses when it comes to screen reflectivity, too. The average screen reflection with light from all directions is just 4.8%. The best value DisplayMate have ever measures for a smartphone is 4.4%, which is impressive.

lollipop 5.0

 

Motorola is really doing a good job on updating its devices to the latest Lollipop builds. Users of various Moto devices have had mixed luck with the OS update and various reports have been pouring in from all around the world during the last few months.

 

moto g

 

Today, the Original Moto G (2013) model X1032, is receiving Lollipop 5.0.2 in the UK. The update came a few days after a notification from Motorola Update Services announced that the package will be seeding shortly. There is still no notification of the update, but manually checking the Update menu earlier today, has yielded the long-anticipated result.

 

Hopefully the long update delay has given Motorola the chance to patch various issues with early Android 5 builds and the 5.0.2 builds that have begun seeding will offer the stability and performance that Moto devices are expected to deliver.

No, it is not a typo and you read it right; Ringing Bells is an Indian company that's selling the world's cheapest smartphone, starting on February 18, at 6 AM Indian Standard Time. The Android phone has been named Freedom 251 because it is going to be priced at INR 251 or roughly $4 in accordance with the international exchange rate right now. As you might have already guessed, it's exclusive to Indian citizens only.


The phone will be powered by a 1.3GHz quad core chipset and 1GB of RAM. In addition to an in-built memory of 8GB, you can further expand storage up to 32GB with a SD card. The (960x540) qHD 4" display doesn't really sound amazing until you are reminded of the fact that the entire phone costs $4! The Freedom 251 will also feature a 3.2 megapixel rear camera and a 0.3 megapixel front camera to help in minor photographic endeavors. All other standard features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and even GPS connectivity are present. A 1,450mAh battery will be providing juice to all this and according to reports, handsfree headsets will be included.


If you are dumbfounded like us and wondering how it is possible for the company to sell a smartphone at this price, then be informed that it is an initiative by the Indian government which is being led by the Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. It is being launched today by Manohar Parrikar, the Indian Defence Minister (7 PM IST). This is an effort in making smartphones affordable for anyone and everyone in India, thus promoting growth and modernisation.

Galaxy Note 2

 

Last May, Samsung Denmark announced that the Galaxy Note 2 (N7100) is planned on getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, However, the company didn't put a timeframe or ETA (Estimated time of arrival) for the update and it has reached the "In-development" stage about 3 months ago.

 

After receiving some reports we reached out for more info regarding the update and... Sadly, we got a confirmation today that the official Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 2 has been Canceled, the decision was made after due to the device has failed to pass the final testing stage that performed before the final release.

 

Note 2 Lollipop

 

Samsung always includes its popular TouchWiz UI on top of every new Android release to all its devices, running both "Lollipop + Touchwiz UI" will cause performance issues and lag which will affect the user experience on daily usage.

 

This is not the first time that Samsung canceled an update for a flagship device, same thing happened to the Galaxy S3, S4 mini, Ace 4, Tab Active, K zoom and tab 3.

 

UPDATE September,10th !

In other hands, SamsungDenmark and SamsungMobileUK confirmed the news on their official twitter accounts too, admiting that there won't be any Lollipop updates for the Galaxy Note 2 at all.

Android Marshmallow has finally arrived for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 on AT&T and it brings familiar features such as Doze Mode, Google Now on Tap, customizable app permissions and an overall better performance to the tablet. However we really liked NumberSync in particular, which is exclusive to the AT&T users. If you are lucky enough to own a Tab S2 from AT&T, the NumberSync functionality will now allow you to use your tablet as a phone and you will be able to make calls from it even when your smartphone is not near the device.


We suggest the use of Wi-Fi for downloading the update when it arrives on your tablet and you are auto-notified. Alternately of course, feel free to check for the update manually by going into Settings > About device > Software update > Check for updates. Once you are notified about the update and you are done with the download, there should be at least 70% - 80% battery left on your Tab S2 before you start upgrading to Android M. After the upgrade, your phone's Baseband version should now change to T817AUCU2BPF2 and the base Android version should show Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

Ever since Stagefright came into public limelight in 2015, Samsung had taken up a policy to keep all its top-tier handsets updated with the latest security patches on a monthly basis. This was a step by the Korean smartphone manufacturer to ensure that this chink in Android's armor cannot affect its flagships. So far, Samsung has kept its promise and as a result, all the major smartphones under the company's banner usually get monthly security patches.


2015 is behind us now and the January, 2016 is coming to an end, but Samsung still makes good on its promise as January security patches for the S5, Note4, S6, S6 Active, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+ and Note 5 are now going live OTA. The update is designed to not only thwart present attacks by hackers, but also has elements programmed into the kernel to prevent attacks that have not yet been exposed.


In fact, the security update won't even have a fully disclosed changelog accompanying it as that would make it accessible to hackers, who can then use that data to penetrate the security system of Samsung smartphones. Nonetheless, Samsung has assured its users that this will fix prime susceptibilities that the aforementioned smartphones may have to remote code execution. Although this is good on Samsung's part, it leaves us with a question, what about the other, cheaper Samsung smartphones and their users?

Samsung Galaxy S3 Official Lollipop update

 

So Far, Samsung has promised to release the Official Android 5.0 Lollipop updates to all its latest flagship devices that were released in he past couple of years, like Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 2... What about the good old Galaxy S3 ?

 

 

Galaxy S3 Update Canceled!

 

Well, we have some Bad News for the Galaxy S3 users. Samsung has decided to Cancel Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the Galaxy S3, leaving the old flagship at Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. This decision was made because the device's support has ended as it was released in 2012 (3 years ago).

 

In other hand, a 1 GB DDR2 Ram and an outdated Exynos 4 CPU is not good enough (in performance prospective) to run Lollipop smoothly which will affect the user experience. We assume that other S3 variants (S3 Neo... etc) won't be getting the update too.

 

galaxy Note 2 official lollipop update confirmed release

 

However, Samsung has confirmed that Galaxy Note 2 will get the Lollipop update later this year, known that Note 2 was released just few months after the S3. This doesn't prevent the loyal Galaxy S3 users to enjoy custom Lollipop ROMs for their beloved device.

Originally supposed to go live on December 19, the "killer" update has now been set in motion by T-Mobile. This makes T-Mobile the first carrier in the US to release the fatal OTA file for the Note 7 smartphones. The firmware comes with the build number N930TUVU2APL2. All the other major carriers like AT&T, Sprint and even Verizon will start to roll the same update out to the potentially dangerous handsets from January 5.


Just in case you are not aware of what it will do to your phone; consider this a warning. The update will disconnect the phone from cellular network; therefore, it won't function as a phone anymore. Additionally, the user will now be unable to remove a notification from the panel which will constantly remind the user that he/she needs to turn in the device right now. As a final measure, it will even prevent the battery from taking in any charge at all, essentially turning the Note 7 into an expensive brick.


Our advice would be to get an exchange/refund as soon as possible. The Note 7 will not receive any more updates until you install this one. Since Samsung has suffered tremendous losses both in terms of prestige and finances by taking this decision of recalling (twice) and permanently discontinuing the Galaxy Note 7, you can imagine what a threat it must be to user safety. Additionally, check out Instrumental's explanation of the reason behind why the Note 7 is prone to explosions so much. It clearly shows how easy it is to accidentally set the phone on fire, even while in your pocket.
