Verizon's Note 3 Earns Lollipop Update Today
Verizon Wireless said its version of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 will begin to receive Android 5.0 Lollipop today. The over-the-air update will roll out to all users gradually. According to Verizon, seven of its handsets now run Lollipop, including the Motorola Moto X (2nd gen); Galaxy Note 4, S5, and Note 3; LG G2 and G3; and the HTC One M8.
Motorola is back with a new version of its X, its top-of-the-line smartphone. The X is a better competitor than last year's device as far as features go and takes build quality to the next level.
Last year's Moto X was a major turnaround point for Motorola. Building on the critical acclaim of the first model, the company is back at it with the second generation Moto X.
Samsung today announced its latest Galaxy Note phablet. This year's iteration refines the design with a metal frame and the latest specs, including a quad-HD display, 2.7 GHz processor, and heart rate monitor.
LG came out gunning for Samsung with the G2, its new flagship smartphone. The G2's spec list is crammed full of the latest and greatest options, and its software improvements are also notable.
The LG G3 is a solid device for Sprint customers to consider, and is among a growing number to offer Wi-Fi calling. Android smartphone enthusiasts would do well to read Phone Scoop's full report, which points out the phone's strengths and weaknesses.
