Verizon Updates The DROID RAZR HD, DROID RAZR MAXX HD, And DROID RAZR M With Minor Security And Messaging Improvements

As a personal user of the DROID RAZR M, I've got to say that Motorola's 2012 line of branded DROIDs have held up remarkably well. That's due in no small part to frequent and relatively speedy updates. The latest one doesn't come with a new version of Android (they're running 4.4.2 at the moment), but it does have a few security enhancements and improvements to the default messaging app.

Users of the DROID RAZR HD, the DROID RAZR MAXX HD (which has nearly identical software), and the smaller DROID RAZR M should be seeing the updates presently.

Android 4.4.4 Update Should Be Rolling Out For Sprint's Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Now

Owners of the Sprint flavor of the Galaxy Note 3, I have some good news: you're going to be using the latest version of Android for at least a month or two before the L release gets its public debut. Samsung's support site has posted the changelog for the Android 4.4.4 update, which means it should be heading out to end users soon. Not only is this the latest Android build for the Note 3, I think it might be the first build of 4.4.4 for any Samsung phone in the country.

Just days after the Explorer Edition of Google's first wearable device made its way onto the US Play Store, the Glass development team is starting to roll out yet another in a long history of updates.

AT&T Updates The LG G Flex With Security, Music, And G Watch Compatibility Fixes

The AT&T version of the LG G Flex is getting upgraded! Huzzah! But don't bust out the champagne just yet, G Flex owners: at the end of your upgrade you'll still be using Android 4.4.2, like you have been since April. According to AT&T's update support page, the newest patch for the phone doesn't add very much at all.

G Flex software build D95020f adds the "latest Android security patches," an updated version of LG's built-in music app that you don't use, and some compatibility fixes for the LG G Watch.

AT&T Announces Minor LG G2 OTA Software Update Bringing A Security Patch And Slight Enhancements

AT&T is rolling out a minor over-the-air firmware update to its version of the LG G2. The change log is pretty vague with this one, and most of the changes won't be anything people particularly notice. There's a security patch, which is generally something to be thankful for (though rooted users may disagree). There's an APN update, and the included music player app has seen some attention as well. The change log closes with "G Watch compatibility," something devices running Android 4.3 or higher should already have.

AT&T Galaxy S5 Gets Minor Enhancements Via OTA Software Update G900AUCU2ANG3

Not all updates are created equal. Some are the kind that keep us up at night, leaving us banging on the virtual update button in hopes that it will appear. Others, well, if they had slipped in under the radar, we wouldn't have noticed a difference. AT&T's latest Galaxy S5 update is one of those. This over-the-air software (version G900AUCU2ANG3) bump provides a number of minor enhancements and security patches that, while dandy, aren't the equivalent of putting new rims on that ride.
