Verizon Updates Are Rolling Out For The LG G5, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, And Galaxy S6 Edge+

Software updates are like Christmas gifts for geeks like us. We rush to get them and we can't wait to unpack them, but we never know what we're really going to get. Sometimes it's everything we've been begging for in the past months, other times it's just a pair of socks for... I don't know mom, why did you think I needed socks?!

Verizon likes to tell you what's inside your gift before you unpack it. It's thoughtful and it makes our job here a little less complicated because we don't have to fill the news article with fluff about random bugs getting fixed and things becoming better without really knowing if that's the case.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies Come To Verizon's Galaxy Note 10.1 And The GSM-LTE, Sprint, and Verizon Galaxy Note II

The Galaxy Note II and its tablet big brother the Galaxy Note 10.1 were both released in 2012. That being the case, the odds of them getting an Android 6.0 update are about as good as the Chicago Cubs winning the Super Bowl. Of course, a lack of updates (even for hardware that might not meet the minimum requirements) is a big part of what makes custom ROMs so popular. So it is that the CyanogenMod ROM's version 13, based on AOSP code for Marshmallow, has come to a handful of older Samsung devices.

There was a fair amount of speculation as to whether the phone would get an update to Google's latest OS considering that the device never landed on Motorola's official list. Alas, Verizon and the OEM seem to have come through.

Verizon Is Rolling Out An OTA To The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge Tomorrow, May 6

If you're an owner of a Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge on Verizon, you'll want to check for an update tomorrow. According to the carrier, an OTA is on the way and there looks to be more than just bug fixes and security patches. According to the support documents, here's a list of what we can expect:

  • Security patches, though we aren't sure if it'll be May's or one from a previous month, but since the phones are currently on February's security update, anything will be a welcome addition.

Verizon LG G Pad X8.3 Gets Android Marshmallow Update

Even though it was announced almost a year and a half after the original LG G Pad 8.3, the G Pad X8.3 (notice the X?) is only a small improvement over its predecessor. The size, screen, software, storage, battery, remained more or less the same. Only the processor was bumped from a Snapdragon 600 to a 615 and the camera from a 5MP to an 8MP shooter.

Still, if you bought the X8.3 on Verizon, you might have been bummed because your relatively new tablet was stuck on Lollipop even though all the cool flagship phones got Marshmallow. Well, no more.
