Following Sprint and AT&T, Verizon is now pushing Nougat updates to the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+. Verizon doesn’t necessarily post the update sizes, but it should be a big one since it is Nougat and does include Samsung’s latest TouchWiz skin.
For the Note 5, you are looking at software version N920VVRU3CQB9, while the S6 Edge+ will see G928VVRU3CQB9. (more…)
Earlier in the week, Google posted April’s security patch for Android 7.1.1, while also rolling out stable 7.1.2 to select Pixel and Nexus devices. Then yesterday, Verizon updated its Pixel and Pixel XL support pages showing another unannounced update on the way as build NHG47K. We initially thought the “H” in there might be a typo, since the 7.1.2 builds expected were N2G47J and N2G47E. As it turns out, some Verizon Pixel owners have indeed starting seeing NHG47K and it is 7.1.2. (more…)
Earlier in the week, when no one was paying attention because Samsung was on the verge of announcing the Galaxy S8, Verizon quietly announced a new service it plans to begin pushing to its Android devices.

I know that world is still focused on yesterday’s big Samsung Galaxy S8 event, but the LG G6 launched today at Verizon. And we’re talking full launch, as in, you can walk into a Verizon store and buy one. Pre-orders are done, man.
If the Galaxy S8 and S8+ didn’t turn you on, the G6 is going to be an excellent option. It’s got really good specs, a big ol’ display with little bezel, water resistance, dual cameras, and a premium metal and glass design. It’s easily LG’s best phone in years. (more…)
The HTC 10 on Verizon is receiving its update to Android Nougat today. It’s almost April, so yeah, this seems like it might be a bit late knowing T-Mobile and Sprint variants have had this update since January and February, respectively. The unlocked US model has had Nougat since November. (more…)
Where and when can you buy the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+? Soon! And at lots of places! The phone goes up for pre-order on March 30 (tomorrow!) and then arrives in stores on April 21 in Midnight Black, Orchid Gray, and Arctic Silver. (more…)
Owners of the Samsung Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Moto Z, or Moto Z Force on Verizon are all receiving updates to kick off the week. As far as we know, the updates are minor.
The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are seeing software version G930VVRU4BQA4 and G935VVRU4BQA4, respectively. The update is telling users that it includes “WiFi performance improvements.” (more…)
In case you were hoping to get your LG G6 pre-order in this morning on a carrier other than Verizon, Sprint and AT&T have opened up their sales, too. (more…)
