Android 5.1 update now rolling out to Verizon Moto X (2nd gen)

Post by +Edgar Cervantes 
HTC is not the only one bringing Android 5.1 to its US carrier-specific devices. Motorola is also getting in on the action as Verizon announces the latest Moto X (2nd gen) software is ready to begin rolling out to smartphones across the USA. This news comes only a few days after said device was starting to get Android 5.1 soak tests. It didn't take Big Red and Motorola much longer to get it all worked out, obviously. This update takes the soft...

OnePlus 2 will feature a fingerprint scanner that’s “faster than Touch ID”

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
Continuing the extremely slow rollout of features that will be present on the OnePlus 2, the company behind the 'no-compromise' smartphone has just announced the next notable feature. The OnePlus 2 will come with a touch-enabled fingerprint sensor that, in the company's words, will be able to unlock your device 'faster than Touch ID.' Apple's Touch ID fingerprint tech is actually quite fast and reliable, so it will be interesting to see if the On...

Updated Android 5.1.1 factory image with build LMY48G arrives for the Nexus 7 (2013)

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
Google has just released an updated factory image for the Wi-Fi Nexus 7 (2013), which was posted earlier today as Android 5.1.1_r6 carrying build LMY48G. While no exact changelog has been posted at this time, this minor update will likely only contain a few small bug fixes. The update is only available for the Nexus 7 (2013) for right now, but this might mean that more Nexus devices will see this small update in the future. As always, we'l...

Supreme Court rejects to hear Google’s appeal in Oracle fight over Android

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
Back in 2010, Oracle took Google to court, arguing that the search giant violated its copyright by using Oracle's Java technology in Android. Then in May 2012, it seemed as though Google would win the battle after the judge overlooking the case ruled that the Java APIs couldn't be copyrighted. That may have seemed like a big win for Google, but as it turns out, Oracle was well on its way to winning the war. Two years after this news came to be, t...

Sprint-bound HTC Aero reportedly coming in November carrying “One” branding

Post by +Jimmy Westenberg 
Although many consumers around the world believe the HTC One M9 to be a wonderful device, the flagship might not be doing as well as the company had hoped. With reports trickling in claiming that there have been roughly 43% fewer shipments for the One M9 than the One M8, it's not irrational to think HTC might have something up its sleeve that could make up for the One M9's loss. So when popular leaker @evleaks gave some insight on the potential r...
