T-Mobile Galaxy S7 And S7 Edge Get Update That Should Fix Misbehaving Power And Volume Buttons

Samsung may produce the top-selling Android flagships, but that doesn't mean buyers don't encounter a few bugs.

Some Galaxy S7 and S7 edge phones apparently suffer from malfunctioning volume down and power buttons. You press either one, whether to reduce noise or wake your device from sleep, and nothing happens. In either case, it's quite a big deal. You're either stuck with a blank screen or notifications coming in loudly as you're trying to silence your phone.

[Weekend Poll] How Happy Are You With Your Carrier's Mobile Data Speeds?

I'm working on an article about 5G - it is becoming increasingly, exasperatingly long - and one of the major themes I'm finding is that new mobile technology is often touted as being the silver bullet for a problem with existing technology. For example: my AT&T LTE service here in Los Angeles sucks, like sub-1Mbps up and down speeds outside not next to a tall building. I've started using HSPA+ more and more just to avoid LA's ultra-congested AT&T LTE network - it's that bad in my area. 5G, of course, promises to fix all of this (I won't get into the hows and whys here - that's what the article is for).

The HTC 10 is leaps and bounds better than the M9 was, and it looks like people are getting rightly excited about this device. The 10 beat out the GS7 in a recent AP poll, in fact.

LG G3 On T-Mobile And AT&T Starts Getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update

We love it when "old" devices get updated to new versions of Android, especially when said old devices are really great smartphones that were popular in their day and still serve their job even in today's landscape. My LG G3, for example, is now in my mother's hands and she has zero complaints about it since it does more than she could ever need. I'm still waiting for Marshmallow to hit her phone though, because as much as she doesn't care what Android version runs below the surface, I do want her to have Doze to improve the aging battery's life and to get a newer Android Security Patch Level (which is sure to come with a full system update).

Verizon Is Finally Ready To Deliver The Droid Turbo 2's Marshmallow Update

Sometimes you have to wait a long time to get the announcement that the latest version of Android is coming to a device that you own. That period of time can be agonizing, especially when you have your eyes set on a particular feature.

The experience is only made worse when the announcement doesn't bring an update any closer.
