HTC Americas President Jason Mackenzie just finished saying HTC One Dev Edition owners could expect an Android 4.3 update this week, but it also looks like the update is rolling out en masse in Taiwan. The 4.3 update appears to be coming to all Ones in that market, but a rollout for other regions is still up in the air.

The Moto X is still rolling out to all corners of the (American) Android world, but the T-Mobile variant is getting an update that improves camera performance dramatically. The difference is noticeable in a variety of situations, most notably in backlit and low-light settings. Presumably the update will hit other Moto X variants once testing and certification is completed by the carriers.

Nexus-7-2013

It is time to begin obsessively checking for updates on your 2013 Nexus 7. We're getting a number of reports of a system update to JSS15R hitting devices. Nevermind that there don't appear to be any user-facing changes, and it's only one letter away from the last minor update – this is new software and you must have it immediately, right?

Sprint has shared a small update rolling out to the LG Optimus G, but right from the beginning, let's temper those expectations. Version LS970ZVC doesn't do much - actually, there's nothing here really worth mentioning. A few bugs related to creating an email account and managing calendar events have been fixed, and that's about it.

This is the first update Sprint's rolled out to the device since the big leap to Android 4.1.2 back in March.

Verizon hasn't explicitly announced an Android 4.2 update for the DROID DNA, but in a way, they have. The company has updated the support page for the nearly one-year-old handset with an in-depth look at what new goodies to expect. It's quite the ugly page, so we'll save you the effort of perusing it for yourself by providing the gist right here. After this update, DROID DNA owners will have an HTC Sense 5 experience that approaches that of the HTC One.

The Galaxy Note II is getting an OTA update. Hooray, right?! Eh, kind of. The update clocks in at 165MB, but it doesn't bump the Android version or even add new features. What you're getting is 165MB of updates to Google and AT&T preloaded apps.

The update will be pushed down to everyone automatically over the coming days, but you can check for the OTA manually from the Software Update menu.

It's a situation too many Android users are intimately familiar with. You get a shiny new phone, and you love it. Then the days turn to weeks, the weeks to months, and suddenly a new version of your phone is released. Oh sure, at first you think it will be fine. The new phone is faster and thinner, but you like your smartphone. Then the updates dry up like a puddle in the unforgiving desert sun, and your phone slides slowly into complete obsolescence.

The LTE version of the new Nexus 7 still isn't that easy to get your hands on, but a new update has rolled out for those of you who happen to own this slightly more expensive version of what is already a solid tablet. Like any new device, the Nexus 7 comes with a handful of bugs. Build number JLS36C doesn't do much, but it changes a bunch of system files, patching both the radio and the recovery.
