GalaxySIII-Thumb

The Galaxy S5 may be the latest thing out, but a quarter-bajillion people around the world are still walking around with the Galaxy S III, and it benefits us all if they're running current software. An update bringing KitKat to the Sprint version of the handset started rolling out earlier this month, and now it's US Cellular's turn. The carrier has announced an OTA that should bump the device up to Android 4.4.2 via version R530UVXCND4.

You know the drill by now. HTC has been pushing through the Sense 6 update to the old HTC One on US carriers, and now Verizon has given it the all clear. That means Big Red's M7 is getting the OTA update with Sense 6 starting today.

The Sprint HTC One (M7) got KitKat way back in January. Since then, things have change a lot with the announcement of the M8 and Sense 6. At long last, owners of last year's flagship on Sprint can get a taste of the new Sense via an OTA update.

The wait is nearly over for anyone who kind of wants a tablet, but doesn't want to commit to having two whole devices. The Asus PadFone X has been "coming soon" for months now, but AT&T is finally setting a date – you can get your own phone/tablet hybrid on June 6th for $199, if you go for the traditional contract.

As is common with smartphone announcements, LG's G3 event was pretty cringe-worthy, but the phone looks intriguing, right? Those of you in the US will probably be able to get it on all carriers eventually, but so far AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have signaled their intention to carry the G3 this summer.

Sprint is touting HD voice and Spark (tri-band LTE) support. The Now network is also getting the gold version of the device as a US exclusive, which I know will make you all very excited.

Moto-X-phone

The 64GB Moto X is fast becoming the latest unicorn of the Android landscape. After the graphics and code for a 64GB option were uncovered on the Moto Maker website, some leaked Sprint docs have shown up that offer more confirmation this device is going to be a thing. It's not a done deal, though.

Thursday we reported that T-Mobile's version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 was getting a minor bug fix in the form of a 131 megabyte update. It looks like the cure was worse than the malady, because T-Mobile has abruptly halted the G900TUVU1ANE5 update, putting up a short message on the support page by way of an explanation.

The Samsung Galaxy S 5 Software update to G900TUVU1ANE5 via OTA or Kies has been paused.

As Android Police's resident phone insurance guru, I'm here to talk to you briefly about AT&T's new multi-device insurance plan that it's offering postpaid subscribers starting today. The premise is simple: pay more money, be able to insure more things. They're calling it the Multi-Device Protection Pack, abbreviated MDPP, which is about as catchy as MERS.

Anyway, the plan works like this - you need at least one connected postpaid AT&T device (phone or tablet) as the "anchor" device on the plan.

Samsung announced a couple days ago that the gold Galaxy S5 will come to all major US carriers by May 30th, but the phone has already popped up on AT&T's site. There it goes for $199.99 with a two-year contract, various monthly payments with an AT&T Next plan, or $649.99 outright. The name, Copper Gold, sounds like a currency stuck somewhere between a penny and something of actual value*, but it describes the color well.

TMobile-Thumb

T-Mobile is ready to pull the metaphorical VoLTE lever marked Seattle, giving the city early access to the upgraded infrastructure the carrier hopes to roll out to more parts of the country over the course of the year. This voice over LTE connection will allow consumers to use voice and data at the same time, as voice calls will go out over IP on LTE rather than taking the current switched-circuit path approach.
