Back in early January of this year, IK Multimedia announced the iRig 2, one of three Android-compatible digital music interfaces announced by the company in recent months. While the first one -- the iRig HD-A -- is compatible exclusively with Samsung Professional Audio devices (Note 3/4, Galaxy S5/6/Edge), the iRig 2 is the first interface on the market that should support most Android 5.0 devices in some way or another.
Today marks the public release of the iRig 2, and it's already available from retailers like Musician's Friend and Sweetwater Music, though Amazon shows that it's actually not available until March 30th. Read More
When T-Mobile added a new update tracking progress meter to its website last week, the Galaxy Note 3 was listed as undergoing T-Mobile testing, the second step in a three-step process to deliver Android 5.0. Soon it should be moving up a notch, as a changelog has hit Samsung's site saying that today's the day the carrier starts pushing out the over-the-air update to consumers.
In addition to Lollipop, the changelog makes references to Wi-Fi calling, including a fix for a one way audio issue. But that's not the point here. When people click the update button looking for software version N900TUVUFOB5, they're looking for the latest version of Android. Read More
General users may not care all that much about software updates, but we smartphone geeks anticipate their arrival with the kind of enthusiasm that most holidays fail to muster. So T-Mobile has added a tracker to its website that will help folks like us keep tabs on over-the-air updates for high-end devices.
T-Mobile's software update tracker breaks the process down into three stages: Manufacturer Development, T-Mobile Testing, and Completed. The first step marks the point at which a manufacturer and T-Mobile agree that a device will get an update to the latest version of Android and begin integrating Google's changes. Read More
We've been seeing a handful of Samsung flagships get updated to Lollipop here in the United States, where the lion's share of phones are still sold with shackles firmly attached to the carriers. The standard international model of the Note 4 uses Samsung's own Exynos chipset, but there's also a variant with a Snapdragon 805, model number SM-N910F. Users in Germany can access the official Lollipop update on these phones today via Samsung's Kies program, according to SamMobile.
European markets tend to get updates in batches, so once the over-the-air update starts in earnest you can expect it to propagate quickly. Read More
If you have a late-model Samsung phone on US Cellular, odds are pretty good that there's a software update waiting for you. The Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 flagships are getting an updated build of KitKat, along with the last-gen Galaxy Note 3. Don't get your hopes too high: all three phones will still be running Android 4.4.2 after the update. But Samsung is pushing out a few incremental changes, notably for the dialer and camera.
According to the update notes, a lot of the tweaks are specifically for Google-related services, notably the ability to "search for nearby places and businesses, your contacts, or people in your Google Apps domain." Read More
Update, January 11th, 2015: Verizon has issued another update alert for the Galaxy Note 4.4.4. This one also updates the phone to 4.4.4 and includes the same changelog, but for some reason the build number is changed to N900VVRUDNK1. Whether or not there was a problem with the original rollout, we can't say, but it appears to be continuing.
No, it's not Android 5.0. There, we've got that over with. And while I'm sure at least some owners of the Verizon version of Samsung's penultimate Note are disappointed at the lack of Lollipop, others will be happy to see it updated to the latest version of KitKat. Read More
Raise your hand if you like carrier apps added to your phone. Anyone. Go ahead, don't be shy. Well if you don't, here's a great example of why companies like AT&T should leave the software alone. An over-the-air update to 4.4.4 for the carrier-customized version of the Galaxy Note 3 was sent out on November 28th, then unceremoniously pulled. A previous message on the support page explained why:
Update: The software update for Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (SMN900A) is temporarily on hold, effective November 28, 2014. Samsung is working with AT&T to resolve a reported issue with ATT Address Book synch on the latest Samsung Note 3 operating software update.
Nothing says "Happy Holidays" like dystopian teenagers forced to murder one another. If you have a recently-released Samsung phone or tablet, you can load up a copy of The Hunger Games or its sequel Catching Fire for that long journey home. Just install this app from Lionsgate (only compatible with some devices) and follow the instructions below to get a couple of free movies.
According to SlickDeals, the free redemption codes are available to owners of the Galaxy Tab S, Galaxy Note Pro, Galaxy Tab Pro, Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy S5, and Galaxy S4. One Android Police writer managed to redeem both movies on a Galaxy Note 4, so it might be worth a try on other Samsung phones too. Read More
Those looking for an off-contract deal on fairly recent phones have a treat today: the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 are available in refurbished condition on eBay for $320 (Note 3) and $220 (S4) with free shipping. They are Verizon devices, but are unlocked and technically able to pick up 3G from GSM carriers, according to the seller. Read More
