Some Pixel phones can't receive any text messages, Google is working on a fix

Google can't go a few days without some sort of critical issue hampering the use of their products. Most recently, there was the issue with Artem's Home Mini recording everything he said, but there have also been multiple bugs with Android Auto, Google Clock, and more. The latest problem? Some Pixel phones can't receive texts. This looks to have been an issue for a while, though it's taken until now for Google to respond. And until the company releases an actual fix, there's nothing Pixel owners can really do about it.

[Late to the Party] Verizon and T-Mobile update Samsung Galaxy Tab E to Android Nougat 7.0

Manufacturers are gearing up to bring Android 8.0 Oreo to devices, but we frequently forget that there are plenty of them still being sold right now that haven't had a taste of Android 7.0 Nougat.

The LG V30 is one of this year's most anticipated flagship phones, and with good reason. It's a clear upgrade on the excellent LG G6 from earlier in the year, and it's set to go toe-to-toe with the S8, Note8, and Google's incoming Pixel 2 XL (also made by LG).

[Deal Alert] Best Buy is already knocking $100 off the Pixel 2 and $25 off the Pixel 2 XL (Verizon models)

Google unveiled its latest and greatest phones yesterday at its big event in San Francisco, as you'll all be well aware of by now.

Verizon's HTC Desire 530 is finally updated to Android 7.0 Nougat

Carriers are notoriously slow to update their devices to newer versions of Android, and while this is not only annoying for users who want to try out new features, it also has implications for the security of devices. Until now, the Verizon HTC Desire 530 had been running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow (released by Google in December 2015) with anything but up-to-date security patches. A new update has just been announced, and it does improve the situation, if only a little bit.
