This huge update (600MB!) brings tons of performance enhancements to the M8 along with a new firmware version 2.22 and a new Android version 4.4.3 which is also includes all security fixes of the Android 4.4.4 KitKat release.

 

HTC executive said that the next over-the-air update would be for Android L. The company has already committed to sending the Android L update for the One M8 within three months of the code being published, whenever that happens to be.



According to research firm International Data Corporation (IDC), in spite of Samsung's best efforts to retain its customer base in light of the Note 7 disaster, many of the customers who have returned or will return their hazardous Note 7 would likely opt for an iPhone 7/iPhone 7 Plus. However, keep in mind that this conclusion was drawn after the firm conducted the survey on a very limited number of people. Nevertheless, here is what they found in a nutshell.


The survey was conducted after four days had passed since Samsung officially killed the Note 7. The group consisted of 1082 people in total and only 24 of them were actually using a Note 7. The rest consisted of people who are using a Samsung smartphone right now (483 + 24), people who used to in the past (347) and people who had no experience in using a Samsung smartphone whatsoever.


Roughly half the Note 7 population stated that they will opt for an iPhone, while most of them stated that they will go for a refund. About 17% of the 24 people carrying a Note 7 stated their wish to stay loyal to Samsung by simply opting for another Samsung device in exchange for the Note. In our opinion, the number of people with an actual Galaxy Note 7 involved in the survey is far too low to draw any reliable conclusions. While it is true that Samsung will lose a percentage of its customer base, this survey isn't inclusive enough to be taken seriously.

Customers who bought the LG G5 flagship smartphone this year will get a chance to test out the upcoming Android OS version 7.0 Nougat before anyone else. However, there are two catches to this; you will have to be in South Korea and even then, the number of people chosen for the beta testing will be very limited. When LG means limited, they mean it as the total number of smartphones which will be allowed in the closed beta program is just two thousand.


The user will need to download and install an app called OS Preview from the Play Store in order to get registered for the beta program, if they are chosen. Needless to say, if you are in the US or in any other country for that matter, the application will not be found on your version of the Play Store. Although LG has not mentioned anything to indicate that the preview will also be made available in other countries, we are hoping that it might be so later on.

If you happen to own a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge on AT&T, you will be receiving a huge security update pretty soon. The size of the update is not really that big, but the 135MB OTA update is big in the sense that it's an important one which addressees multiple issues and vulnerabilities on the two handsets. In fact, one might even be tempted to say that the update came a bit later than expected, given that it's almost the end of October!


Aside from the September and October security updates, the package also contains the necessary BlueBorne patch which had threatened millions of Android, iOS and Windows devices last month. In case you don't know how it affects you, know that your security would be compromised as soon as you turn on your Bluetooth, irrespective of whether or not it is in discoverable mode. The good news is, you don't need to worry about any of that after you download and install this patch, so hurry up!


Head over to our firmware section to find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones and tablets.
