Ever since its start as a Kickstarter campaign, the Nextbit Robin has been available in two color schemes: Mint and Midnight. Now a third color is joining the ranks, and it's just as interesting and even a little bolder and brighter than the Mint variant: Ember.
The colorway mixes black sides and back with bright red (a little magenta'ish if you ask me) end caps, power button, and volume button. It's striking to say the least, especially with the buttons on the sides popping right off the black plastic. Here are a couple more pictures from different angles.
The Ember variant is produced in limited quantity and will sell for the same $299 as the other colors. Read More
The OnePlus 3 is a solid device, but it's not exactly bug free. Since release, owners have reported a number of vexing issues to OP in the hope of getting them fixed. Today, there's an OTA (OxygenOS 3.2.2) rolling out that addresses several of those bugs. You probably won't get it right away, but it's coming. Read More
The Desire 626s is a midrange device that HTC announced about a year ago and released a month later in the US. By today's standards, it's even quite low-end with its Snapdragon 210, 1.5GB of RAM, 5" 720p display, and 8MP/2MP camera setup. Read More
The Xperia Z series has marked the high-end of Sony's smartphone line for years. The M5 sits somewhere lower on the food chain, but not much lower. You're looking at a 5-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM, a 21.5MP camera, plus both water and dust resistance.
Now you also get Android 6.0. Sony has begun pushing out an over-the-air update to this device. Read More
Folks who chose to get an LTE-enabled tablet from T-Mobile and went with the Galaxy Tab S2 are starting to receive an over-the-air update bringing Marshmallow to their device. For a few months at least, users will get to have the latest and greatest on their Android tablet. Read More
AT&T is finally catching up on its Marshmallow OTA rollouts to its fleet of Android devices. And today's lucky winner of "Which device will get an OTA?" is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 2 (T817A).
Mouthful name aside, this may not be the most exciting tablet on the market, but it still deserves to be on the latest and greatest software version possible — even if only for a short time until Nougat is official. And it also deserves to catch up to its Verizon colleague: nobody wants to be left behind more than a month.
Apparently, the software has been rolling out since July 8, but AT&T just decided to update its support page (raise your hand if you see a trend of late updates in everything AT&T does lately). Read More
BlackBerry touted the security features of its Android build when announcing the Priv. It launched with Lollipop, but we thought surely it'll get a quick 6.0 update being so close to stock. How wrong we were. The unlocked Priv update started rolling out in late April, and the AT&T variant has been stagnating since then. Today is the big day, though. Android 6.0 is hitting the Priv on AT&T. Read More
The latest factory images and OTA ZIPs bringing July's security patches to Nexus devices are ready for download. Thing is, those files are beefy, and they can take a while to download. Want to take a quicker route? Try downloading an incremental OTA ZIP instead. Read More
The NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet provides one of the best Android gaming experiences you can currently have, and right now an update is rolling out to the device. Following this latest release, the slate now meets Android 6.0 Professional Audio requirements. Read More
The Factory images and OTA ZIPs for July 2016 are now available for the full line of supported Nexus hardware (still waiting for the Pixel C). They're a little behind schedule this month, possibly because it was Independence Day in the United States on Monday, or possibly to leave time for some late-breaking security patches that may have been added in the eleventh hour. The Android Security Bulletin covers the list of vulnerabilities addressed with this set of updates, and for the first time it includes two separate lists: one dated July 1st and the other dated July 5th.
