Verizon's Exynos-based Galaxy Tab S2 updated to Android 7.0 Nougat

Samsung is far from the best company when it comes to product names (remember the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch?).

2016 AT&T LG K10 updated to Android 7.0 Nougat

Another day, another phone to get Android 7.0 Nougat. This time it's the 2016 AT&T LG K10's turn. This particular phone has been a bit ignored by AT&T.

Project Fi announces group repay with Google Wallet

Google's own carrier, Project Fi, is a pretty great service if you don't use much data. However, the lack of affordable devices compatible with Fi (unless you can find a non-bootlooping Nexus 5X) has made it a bit less popular. If you're on Project Fi and using a group plan, you can now easily split up your phone bill.
