Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

Most of us get pretty excited when we see a new update announced for our phones. But for Samsung Galaxy flagship owners on T-Mobile, that excitement is often short-lived. John Legere and co. are beginning to build a track record for prematurely announcing updates that aren't available, primarily for Galaxy phones.

The issue first began to present itself in late April, when T-Mobile had already halted the Note8's 8.0 Oreo update for around three weeks.

Xiaomi Mi A1 now receiving Android 8.1 Oreo update, but it might wipe your SMS history

Saturday, June 30th, 2018

We're big fans of the Android One-powered Xiaomi Mi A1 here at AP. Its combination of a handsome design, top-of-the-line software, great performance, and solid battery life makes it one of the best budget phones out there (even if it's not officially sold in the US). The phone received Android 8.0 Oreo just before 2018 kicked off, but it's taken until now for 8.1 Oreo to roll out. Unfortunately, it might wipe your entire SMS history.
