Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

Verizon's latest update for the LG V40 ThinQ is all about making users look good, by way of creating digital avatars and fine-tuning their selfies to transport them to another place.

The patch includes a handful of new camera-centric features, including the introduction of "My Avatar" and Augmented Selfie capabilities, both of which look like they're meant for a lot of time-wasting (read: fun) applications.

The November OTA is finally rolling out to the first-gen Pixel and Pixel XL

T-Mobile OnePlus 6T gets its first update, includes security fixes and improved Nightscape

Saturday, November 17th, 2018

One of the downsides to buying Android phones from carriers is that all system updates have to be carrier-approved. Thankfully, it looks like T-Mobile's OnePlus 6T won't lag far behind the unlocked variant. The T-Mobile 6T just received its first system update, which includes security fixes, adjustments to Nightscape mode, and more.

The software version is still labeled as OxygenOS v9.0, even though some of the features are from the unlocked model's v9.0.4 update.

Android 8.1 Oreo is rolling out to the Asus ZenFone Max Plus M1 (ZB570TL)

Thursday, November 15th, 2018

Back in April, one of Jordan's complaints about the Asus ZenFone Max Plus M1 was that it shipped with Android 7.0 Nougat. Seven months later, Asus is rectifying that (sort of) with an update to 8.1 Oreo. It's a little frustrating that manufacturers aren't skipping right to Android 9 Pie, but Oreo has a lot of what's good about Pie, and late updates are better than no updates.

If you're sporting a Max Plus M1 and haven't seen the update yet, head to Settings > System > System updates to initiate the upgrade manually.

That's not the case with Google's Pixel phones, which come with multi-year update guarantees. So, owners of the first-gen Pixels have been concerned about the lack of a November update so far. We've reached out to Google, which says the OTA is in "final testing."
