OnePlus upgrades OxygenOS 4.1 to Android 7.1.1 for OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T

There are not many devices on the market yet that have made the step up to Android 7.1.1. OnePlus can now claim two of them after they announced the official upgrade to their OxygenOS 4.1 to incorporate the latest build of Android. The devices getting the update include the OnePlus 3 and the OnePlus 3T. That will be a nice added bonus for buyers interested in the special OnePlus 3T Colette Edition that will drop next week in France.

App drawer comes with latest update for LeEco Le Pro 3, Le S3

Both the Le Pro 3 and Le S3 from LeEco were missing a simple thing at launch: an app drawer. There’s good news today, though.

It’s all part of the UP2U initiative in which LeEco gets customer feedback and adjusts its user interface through software updates.

AT&T LG G5 update to Nougat now available

 

Add another device to the list of Android 7.0 Nougat smartphones as AT&T has released the update for the LG G5. Owners of the device will have to be content with just getting Android 7.0 and not Android 7.1, but they will get the bulk of the improvements that Google makes available via Nougat. The release comes on the heels of AT&T starting to update the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge with Android 7.0 Nougat.

Battery life on Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge is reportedly 10% down after Nougat update

Samsung has been rolling out the Android 7.0 Nougat update to the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge in recent weeks, the product of its beta testing program that began in November 2016. While it’s always good to see a handset updating to the latest version of Android, it has been reported that the Nougat update for the Galaxy S7 could have an adverse impact on battery life.

Android 7.0 Nougat is currently in testing for several T-Mobile Samsung phones

Samsung has already released Android 7.0 Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge but we’re still waiting for that update on the carrier-branded versions of the device. Like pretty much all major updates on a carrier phone, there’s a delay between when the manufacturer releases it and when the phone actually gets updated, but it’s a good opportunity to see which carriers are quick to get the new software pushed out.
