The software update contains Android 5.1, Google Wallet, anti-theft protection, and battery improvements. All of those items except the new anti-theft protection sound familiar. The One M9 will now prevent unauthorized factory resetting from going through. Users need to have a screen lock and Google account on the device for it to be activated automatically.

T-Mobile’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge get minor software update with improved battery life

Posted by wicked July - 27 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

Samsung_Galaxy_S6_Edge_Front_Top_Samsung_Logo_TAT-Mobile’s Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are both receiving a minor software update that brings some performance tweaks and battery improvements. No new features or other software, unfortunately, but with battery life being one of the top complaints about the S6 and its curved counterpart, any extra juice Samsung can squeeze out of it through software optimization is welcome.

If you own either variant of the S6 on T-Mobile, you should expect the OTA update to hit your phone soon.

NVIDIA_SHIELD_open_front_small

A software update is rolling out right now to the SHIELD Portable that includes the latest version of Android, Chromecast support, and the removal of select apps and games.

The device is seemingly still relevant enough for NVIDIA to provide it with Android 5.1 Lollipop and Chromecast support. The latter, though, has resulted in NVIDIA ending Miracast support.

This is the SHIELD Portable’s first software update in almost six months.

Hit the break for the official changelog.

  • Android 5.1
    • Upgrade to the latest Lollipop OS
    • Fixes a bug that does not allow books to be read in the Google Play Books app
