OnePlus Announces Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update Schedule For The OnePlus One And 2

OnePlus devices run Cyanogen OS or Oxygen OS, but considering the stock look and feel of both, the company's customers are just as eager for the latest version of Android as every one else. Given the nature of OnePlus buyers—many of whom have had to snag an invite to buy their phone—maybe even moreso.

So let's cut to it: The OnePlus One and OnePlus 2 are both scheduled to get Android 6.0 in the first quarter of 2016.

Why Does My Android Phone Have eFuses And Why Should I Care About Them?

This is a guest post by Ricardo "arcee" Cerqueira who takes things apart for sport, on a quest to understand how they work. He currently works on Android devices at Cyanogen.

As people started receiving their Nexus 6Ps, some began freaking out over a new message that comes up on the screen when booting into fastboot mode: “QFUSE: ENABLED,” with wild speculative theories coming up regarding what it does and doesn’t do, what kind of limitations it’s imposing, and wondering if and how it can be “disabled.” So... what’s this qFuse thing, anyway?

Think of an eFuse as the mind’s eye representation of a bit that only flips one way, or something that can only be done once on a piece of writeable flash.

[Deal Alert] Get A 16GB Nexus 5 (D820) In New Condition For A Super Cheap $175

The Nexus 5 has been replaced, sorta. The Nexus 5X isn't exactly as small as its predecessor, but it carries the cheaper Nexus mantle nonetheless. Still, at a starting price of $380, it isn't cheap. That's hardly flagship dollars, sure, but we're not talking budget bucks either.

Though thanks to a seller on eBay, you can get the original Nexus 5 for just $175. Shipping is open to much of the world, though folks in Alaska and Hawaii are out of luck in regards to US buyers. Shipping is free.

The Nexus 5 remains a perfectly usable device. It may be approaching the end of the line in terms of support, but you'll be hard pressed to find a piece of Android hardware with more custom ROM support than this one.

OxygenOS 2.1 Is Now Rolling Out To The OnePlus 2 With Manual Camera Mode, Customizable Color Balance, And More

The build of OxygenOS that shipped on the OnePlus 2 is good, but it's still very light on features compared to Cyanogen OS. The OTA update announced today should improve things a bit, though. There are some changes to the camera, display, and the usual smattering of bug fixes.

OnePlus 2 Review: The Flagships Are Safe For Now

OnePlus came out of nowhere last year with a phone that appealed to a lot of cynical smartphone-using curmudgeons. A device with great specs, capable software, and a reasonable price? What's the catch? Oh, invites. Well, the OnePlus One still managed to win a lot of fans, and now the company's followup, the OnePlus 2 is (sort of) available. This device also has an invite system, and the price is a little higher. Is it worth scrounging and begging to get an invite to buy this one, though? After all, they claim it's a "2016 flagship killer." Let's find out.

[Deal Alert] The Amazon Fire Phone Is $139.99 For 32GB, $159.99 For 64GB On eBay With A Year Of Prime And Free Shipping

Do you want an Amazon Fire Phone? If you do, I'll bet you want it at a discount - even with a free year of Amazon's Prime shipping/video/music service, it's a hard sell at two hundred bucks. It's a good thing, then, that the Fire Phone is so often on sale. The latest discount comes courtesy of an eBay seller, who's getting rid of the phones for as little as $140. That includes free shipping and free access to Prime, bringing the effective price down to $40 for a contract-free phone. Not bad.

That $139.99 price is for the 32GB model.

    Boxer Launches Their Own Calendar App With 'Send Availability' Feature Integration With Email Client

    Boxer, the company behind the slick email client that now ships as the default provider on Cyanogen OS, has just announced and released a new calendar app. The aptly-named Boxer Calendar will offer some useful integration with Boxer Email and will also be pre-loaded with Cyanogen OS 12.1 along with premium features.

    Header_all_devices

    Boxer Calendar isn't exactly reinventing the wheel, but aiming to provide a visually attractive option that plays nicely with their email client. The key differentiating feature in that vein is the ability to quickly send your availability to meet, which only works with Boxer Email.

    For those who do a lot of scheduling, this can potentially fill in a real gap.

    Google Promises A Stagefright Security Update For Nexus Devices Starting Next Week

    So you might have heard about the Stagefright vulnerability that was published yesterday. While there's no evidence of a widely-used hack, the potential for malicious MMS attacks via Android's built-in media handling system (which could theoretically affect the majority of Android devices currently in operation) is certainly cause for concern. As reported on our original post, Google has known about the vulnerability since April and has been working on patches to fix the problem.

    We've received a statement attributed to a Google spokesperson [emphasis ours]:

    This vulnerability was identified in a laboratory setting on older Android devices, and as far as we know, no one has been affected.

    Hands-On With The OnePlus 2: Wood, Fingerprints, And Mute Switches

    I've never used a OnePlus One for more than a few minutes, and I've never really had much of a desire to (hey, just being honest). After hearing Artem's many horror stories about the device, seeing the slow OTA timeline of Cyanogen Inc., and being perfectly happy buying a full-on flagship phone since no-interest financing is readily available here in America, the One never really caught my attention as a product. So, I like to think I'm going into the OnePlus 2 with slightly fresher eyes here, though what that really amounts to in any substantive sense I have no clue.
