Between last year’s One (M8) and this year’s One M9, we know an area that HTC has yet to master: the camera. However, the issues experienced with the One M9’s camera seem to be somewhat fixable through a software update. Right now, owners of the device operating through AT&T are receiving a software update that “camera improvements.” No further details were provided aside from the inclusion of thermal improvements and the usual bug fixes and improvements.
Let us know in the comments how you are handling the camera after this software update.
Starting today, T-Mobile customers with the LG G2 will begin to receive a software update. It unsurprisingly is for Lollipop. The carrier says that the update will take place between April 14 and May 22, but we assume everyone will be updated fairly quick. The changelog issued by T-Mobile only states that Android 5.0 Lollipop is among the new features.

Owners of the HTC One (M8) on AT&T finally have something to look forward to. Mo Versi, HTC Vice President of Product Management, announced on Twitter that a software update would begin rolling out on April 7. The software update is, of course, for Android 5.0 Lollipop. Versi says that the company received technical approval for the software and that means an update can occur as soon as possible. An delay will only occur if a bug randomly surfaces.

It has only been a few weeks since Android 5.1 was introduced to the public and pushed to select devices, but software updates wait for nothing. There is always something to be fixed, changed, or added. The next version of Android, 5.1.1, could be released soon as it has been spotted in the Android SDK Manager. It has not yet been added to AOSP, so hold off on continuously checking for a software update.
We will let you know when Android 5.1.1 starts hitting Nexus devices.

Quite a few devices are still without Lollipop, leaving consumers frustrated with the waiting. The LG G2, released in 2013, is one of the devices still without the latest version of Android; however, the wait may not be much longer.
The launch of Android 5.1 was met with software updates for various Nexus 6 variants. The handset on T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon networks are all roaming the country with the latest version of Android. The Nexus 6 for AT&T, however, was left without the update until now.
Since launching its first handset in early 2014, OnePlus has had its ups and downs. Among the downs has been the slow release of software updates. Today, the company announced release dates for the OnePlus One, running CyanogenMod 12S, to receive Lollipop as well as the handsets in India with OxygenOS.
Starting today, a software update is rolling out to owners of the Galaxy S 4 located in the United Kingdom. The software update overhauls the device with Lollipop and the specific version here is Android 5.0.1. Remember that this is strictly for those in the United Kingdom. Other markets, including the United States, are seeing extremely slow arrivals of the latest version of Android.
This Tuesday, owners of the HTC One (M7) from T-Mobile will see a software update arrive on their handsets. Mo Versi, HTC Vice President of Product Management, announced on Twitter that the Lollipop update is coming on March 10. The over-the-air (OTA) update received technical approval from the carrier which allowed its rollout to be scheduled.
