HTC Adds Sense Web Browser To Play Store For Easy Updates

Despite Chrome's wide availability these days, most OEMs still make a customized version of the AOSP browser for use on their devices. HTC is no different, but it has taken the additional step of adding the Sense browser to the Play Store so it can be updated independently of the system. It even comes with some new features in this first Play Store build.

The Nexus 9 Is Finally Available In 'Sand' Color On The US Play Store, 32GB Only For The Moment

When Google and HTC announced the Nexus 9, they showed it off in the now-standard black, white, and gold "sand" color options. The off-brown color wasn't seen on launch day, though considering the low initial manufacturing runs that Nexus devices seem cursed with, that's not overly surprising. In the small hours of this morning the sand option appeared on the Play Store in the United States - you can pick up a 32GB model now for $479.

Samsung Has Started Rolling Android 5.0 Out To The Galaxy S5 In The UK

There's still no sign of it in the US, but Samsung has started pushing Lollipop to its current flagship phone in the UK. Users of the Galaxy S5 across the pond (SM-G900F) should be getting OTA notifications very soon, which means plenty of new features and some tweaks to Samsung's TouchWiz UI.

For most of us, making and receiving phone calls with our devices is something we simply take for granted. Unfortunately, Nexus 6 owners who use Sprint as their carrier are finding that it's not quite that simple.

Background

The Nexus 6 works on all five major US carriers with the simple swap of a SIM card, but that doesn't mean that all problems with the device are universal to all carriers.

Moto X (2014) Review Addendum: Three Months Later

When Motorola released the revamped Moto X a few months ago, there was plenty of discussion about whether it or the still-unannounced Nexus 6 would be a better purchase. It's completely reasonable to prefer the Nexus 6 because of the larger screen and improved camera, but the 2014 Moto X still stands out to me as one of the best Android phones ever made. Now that we've got a little distance, let's see how the 2014 Moto X is holding up.

If you have one of three Samsung devices on Sprint, you might just have an over-the-air update waiting for you in your Settings menu.

The Galaxy S III and Galaxy S5 Sport (AKA the S5 Active) phones and the Galaxy Tab 4 (the 7-inch version) all have tiny additions to their software going out today.

[Update: Android One Nightlies, T-Mobile G3 (D851) Added] CyanogenMod Adds Official Support For Android One, Nexus 6, International LG G3 (D855)

Just a day after pushing Lollipop nightlies to over 30 devices for the first time, CyanogenMod has now added more devices to the fray: the gambit of Android One phones, the LG G3 D855 (international), and the Nexus 6. Android One devices, owing to the control over software and hardware that Google has in that program, share a single ROM under codename "sprout."

Samsung Brings Its A-Series To The Big Screen Crowd With The 5.5-Inch Galaxy A7

If you're a fan of the direction Samsung has taken with the design of the Galaxy Alpha and Galaxy Note 4, you'll be happy to see the same notes show up in even more hardware. The new Galaxy A7 is a bigger brother to the previously-announced Galaxy A5 and A3, complete with its thin, minimal design and metal bezel and frame. The phone's 5.5-inch screen is the biggest in the series, and it's also in the same ballpark (at least in terms of size) as flagships from both Samsung and its competitors.
