Axon 7 gets updated with improved signal strength, September security patch, and more

ZTE's Axon 7 has some of the best hardware I've ever seen, but its software is a major letdown. Ryan's review and many more indicate that I'm not alone in thinking this. With this latest update for the Axon 7, ZTE doesn't change much visually, but there are quite a few upgrades under the hood.

The title says it all, really—the Nexus 6P finally has a downloadable factory image and OTA, courtesy of Google. This news comes shortly after Vodafone announced that it was halting the Nougat OTA for the 6P due to unnamed issues.

We're getting closer and closer to Gameloft's newest release title, Wild Blood. We've seen teasers and trailers for the game leading up to this point. Finally, though, we've gotten something resembling a release date and you're in it.

...Okay, maybe not right now. But soon!

Sony S1 Tablet Gets Named As 'Tablet S,' Could Hit The Street In Early To Mid September

We've seen the Sony S1 tablet randomly show up over the last several months, showing off everything from its unique form factor to custom interface.

So, two new tablets from Archos weren't enough for you? Apparently, it wasn't for them either - enter two new products that put Android in places that we haven't really seen it before: on your radio, and on your... home phone.

With that in mind, let's take a look at the 35 Smart Home Phone first. It's basically a smartphone without cellular connectivity, offering the same features that you've come to expect from an Android phone.

It appears that Verizon got a little bit too excited about the "end of September" switch-over for the Droid Incredible's screen. As an internal memo revealed to us a couple of weeks ago, the Droid Incredible was slated to make the switch from an AMOLED screen to SLCD (Super LCD) at the end of September but, as these snapshots show us, the future is now.
