Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge receiving Android 8.0 Oreo update in the UK
Tue, 01 May 2018 10:34:50 +0000

Recently in the US, Verizon inadvertently trolled Galaxy S7 and S7 edge owners on its network by releasing an update that supposedly brought Android Oreo to the devices. It turns out the carrier had just attached the wrong changelog, and Oreo wasn't imminent at all. To rub salt into the wounds of those customers, S7 and S7 edge units in the UK are now actually receiving the Oreo update.

A number of users on Reddit with unlocked versions (model numbers SM-G930F and SM-G935F) are able to confirm the OTA update is reaching them.

Mon, 30 Apr 2018 19:09:04 +0000

Getting Android Auto in a vehicle that doesn't already have it can be a pricey proposition. Some head units can cost upward of $1,000, and then you have to pay to get them installed. There's a good deal today, though. You can get the JVC KW-M730BT for just $280. That's the lowest price we've seen so far.

This head unit fits in vehicles that have a standard double-DIN dash system. Keep in mind, that's not especially common in new vehicles.

Android P notifications could be getting new remind, send, and snooze actions
Mon, 30 Apr 2018 11:40:46 +0000

Notifications on Android became a lot more powerful last year when Oreo added the ability to snooze them. You can set them to reappear 15mins, 30mins, 1hr, or 2hrs later — which is incredibly useful. Before, I found myself leaving notifications lying around in my tray for hours so I wouldn't forget to action them. Snoozing lets you get them out of the way until you need them.

Thanks to a new screenshot added to the private Play Store listing for Google's smart response app Reply, it looks like notifications in Android P are going to have even more control options.

Galaxy Note Fan Edition, the non-combustible Note 7, gets Android 8.0 Oreo update
Fri, 27 Apr 2018 12:45:11 +0000

It feels like years have passed, but it was only a little more than a year ago when the hottest topic (and joke) on the block was Samsung and its Note 7's propensity to spontaneously go up in flames. But the Note being the Note meant that despite many a recall program, several updates supposed to render the device useless, and dozens of offers to tempt users to give back their phones, some held onto their precious Note 7 like a little collector item.
