Android 7.1.1 kernel source now available for Moto G4 Play

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

Motorola's flagship devices still get updates relatively quickly, but its budget phones lag behind quite a bit. For example, the Verizon Moto G4 Play was just updated from Android 6.0 to 7.1.1 earlier this month, shortly after the international variants received it. Now Motorola has released the kernel source code for the G4 Play's Nougat update.

The kernel source for 'Harpia' (the G4 Play's codename) was published earlier today on GitHub.

Nokia 8 review: Nokia looks and Nexus feel make for a very enjoyable experience

Saturday, November 18th, 2017

Confused nostalgia. It's hard to find another way to describe my feeling right now as I sit down to write this Nokia 8 review. For those who don't know my history, my career covering mobile devices started with a personal blog in 2006 and a Nokia 3250 XpressMusic. For several years, I was Dotsisx (.sisx), a nickname that evokes how much I was involved with the Symbian OS. I reviewed phones, I covered events, I spent hours daily looking for the best apps and games.

Sony’s expensive interactive projector is getting Android 7.1

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

Sony first showed off its touchscreen projector concept at Mobile World Congress 2016, and it was released in Europe earlier this year as the 'Xperia Touch.' It finally came to the United States earlier this month, but with a price tag of $1,699.99, it was a pretty hard sell.

If you are one of the people who bought this (I am very jealous), you'll be happy to know that Sony is rolling out Android 7.1.1 to it.

Motorola publishes Android 7.1.1 kernel source code for Moto Z Play

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

Motorola isn't the best at updating its devices these days. Custom ROMs can often be helpful for devices without speedy official updates, but the lack of a recent kernel source code can make ROMs less stable/functional. Thankfully Motorola has released the kernel code for the original Moto Z Play's Android 7.1.1 update.

The company is a bit late on this; kernel source code is supposed to be released shortly after the Android update, but the original Z Play started to get Android 7.1.1 in June.

[Update: A little late, but it’s starting] Nokia 3 will be updated to 7.1.1 by the end of August

Monday, September 11th, 2017

It might not be available in the US just yet, but HMD Global is already preparing to update the entry-level Nokia 3 to Android 7.1.1. The phone launched with Android 7.0 Nougat, which isn't too shabby, but 7.1.1 will bring with it a few new features.

Google is finally pushing Android 7.1.1 to the Nexus 6 again

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

The Nexus 6 was the launch device for Android 5.0 Lollipop back in 2014, and it's been getting updates ever since. The problem, however, is not all those updates have been good. After deploying some bugged OTA updates earlier this year, Google is finally sending out Android 7.1.1 to the Nexus 6.

This is not actually the first time the Nexus 6 has seen a 7.1.1 update. After a long wait for both 7.0 and 7.1.1, Nexus 6 owners were greeted with a number of bugs so severe that Google called for a do-over on the update.

ZTE Maven 2 on AT&T jumps from Android 6.0 to 7.1.1

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

The ZTE Maven 2 is one of many phones offered on AT&T PREPAID (previously AT&T GoPhone), and currently goes for $39.99 from the carrier. It has the specifications to match - a 480x854 display, a Snapdragon 210 processor, and 1GB of RAM. Still, this super cheap phone has one thing the Galaxy S8 doesn't have - Android 7.1.1.

AT&T is rolling out a software update to the Maven 2, jumping the system version from 6.0 to 7.1.1.

Nokia 3 will be updated to 7.1.1 by the end of August

Monday, July 31st, 2017

It might not be available in the US just yet, but HMD Global is already preparing to update the entry-level Nokia 3 to Android 7.1.1. The phone launched with Android 7.0 Nougat, which isn't too shabby, but 7.1.1 will bring with it a few new features. If this is a predictor of future software support, customers that pick up one of the new Nokia Android phones may have a lot to look forward to. 

The news was released a couple days ago via a tweet from Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, which licenses the Nokia name to produce Android phones.

Android 7.1.1 update is rolling out to the Moto Z and Z Play in Brazil

Wednesday, July 19th, 2017

Motorola started sending out the Android 7.1.1 update to Moto Z Play devices in the US last month, and now it's also doing the same in Brazil, for that device plus the regular Moto Z model. After carrying out soak tests in the region, the final builds are starting to slowly make their way to users of both phones.

Motorola may not be as quick as it used to be with device updates, but it's still one of the best around, particularly given many OEMs have probably stopped caring about Nougat as we get close to the release of Android O.

Monday, July 3rd, 2017

Asus didn't pop up much on our radar until a few years ago when the ZenFone 2 came in at a competitive price. The ZenFone 3 family hasn't been as popular, but there certainly are more of them.
