HTC ONe mini


Few weeks ago, HTC has confirmed that HTC One mini 2 Android 5.0 Lollipop Update has been canceled due to performance issues. Today, HTC also confirmed via twitter that the Original HTC One mini won't be getting the Lollipop update.



The original One Mini was launched back in 2013 shortly after the original One M7. Considering the newer One Mini isn't getting the update, it's no surprise that the older one isn't either. However, this is rather unbecoming of a company to launch phones under the flagship brand name and then just leave them out in the cold later when it comes to updates.

Samsung is working Galaxy Grand Prime Value Edition (SM-G531F). It will pack a 5" qHD display (540 x 960px) and while it drops the Snapdragon 410 chipset, moving to a Marvell PXA1908, but keeps the quad-core 64-bit processor (Cortex-A53) and 1GB of RAM. The GPU is different though, GC7000.


Connectivity brings the same LTE Cat.54, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. The cameras are 8MP on the back and 5MP on the front, the battery at 2,600mAh. Thickness and weight stay at 8.6mm and 156g, really not much has changed. Galaxy Grand Prime Value Edition launch price should be around €200


One definite improvement is that the Galaxy Grand Prime Value Edition will launch with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Out-of-the-box. The Original model is still on 4.4 KitKat and as we said above, the Lollipop update is delayed. Stay Tuned for More info!

In an age and time when even premium flagship phones lose the eligibility for technical support after two years and lesser phones are forgotten much sooner, we have excellent news for you today. We knew that the Galaxy A (2016)-series was going to get the Nougat update from Samsung in 2017, but as it turns out, even the original Galaxy A-series isn't out of Samsung's support yet; at least not the A5 anyway.

In an official confirmation, Australian carrier Optus has stated that a Nougat build for the original Galaxy A5 is at its testing stage. They further elaborated that an OTA update which will deliver the final build to the A5 original should roll out by the end of next month. Considering that the Galaxy A5 has already received two major upgrades in the form of Lollipop and Marshmallow, the fact that it will receive Nougat is something that almost sounds too good to be true. If you are wondering if the same will be applicable to the Galaxy A5 handsets in other regions as well, I guess that's something which we will just have to wait and find out.

Although we are already into the second week of March, not all smartphones are fortunate enough to expect the March SMR package from OEMs and carriers yet. In fact, most older and budget devices have not even received the January security patch. If you own a Galaxy Note 4 or a Galaxy J5 Original though, you are in luck as T-mobile and Samsung respectively have released the January security patch for them.

The unlocked versions and even certain carrier variants of the Note 4 had started to receive the February patch a few days ago in Europe, so it is a bit disappointing to see T-Mobile taking so much time in rolling out even the dated updates in the US. Nevertheless, the 60.54MB package with build number MMB29M.N910TUVS2EQB1 should arrive via OTA on your Note 4 anytime now.

On the Galaxy J5 original, the January update arrives with the build number MMB29M.J500FNXXU1BQA3. This one comes straight from Samsung and not a carrier. Just as with all other January security updates from Samsung, this one will address 67 potential security issues common to all Android devices and 28 of Samsung's own custom fixes for vulnerabilities exclusive to Samsung smartphones.

Security patch for the month of February has now started to reach the Galaxy A7 original. You may argue that it's already the middle of March, but hey! Better late than never. Besides, the Galaxy A7 original was released back in 2015 and it's a good thing that Samsung is still updating the device with regular patches. Then again, it has been the trend with Samsung recently to support even some of its older phones; a trend which we like very much.

The update comes in with the firmware version A700FXXU2BQB1 and should reach your region soon. In case you are wondering where this report originated from, know that the OTA file is currently being rolled out to the A7 handsets in the Netherlands. The report came to our attention, thanks to SamMobile and their sources.

If you have an older handset that you want to upgrade or if you want to flash the latest Nougat ROM on your Galaxy S7 or S6, head over to our firmware section and find all the latest available updates for your Samsung smartphones.
