More Sony Xperia devices receiving Android Lollipop update

We earlier reported that Sony has started rolling out (finally!) Android 5.0 Lollipop to the Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 compact to mobile users in the Baltics and the Nordics. Now some sites have reported seeing the firmware build in other Xperia devices as well, like the Xperiz Z2, as well as the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and Xperia Z2 Tablet. But they are being updated only to Android 5.0.2 and not yet to the 5.1 that some Nexus devices already have.

Android 5.1 updated build, plus a rooted stock build now available

OnePlus announces Lollipop update official release dates

OnePlus One owners have been anticipating for the official Android 5.0 Lollipop software update to roll out.

The Google Store has been open for days and a lot of people have started to check out the online shopping portal for new Google-powered hardware.

It was actually more of setting a divide between Google's digital and non-digital products so shopping is more convenient now for potential consumers. If you want apps and updates, go directly to the Google Play Store. But if you want to buy a new Nexus mobile device or a smartwatch to go with it, you can check out the Google Store.

HTC UH OH Protection makes sure you’ll have a One always

Exactly a year and a month ago, HTC launched its "HTC Advantage" program that aimed to reassure buyers of the HTC One that the OEM, despite not being as big as its rivals, always has their back. Despite its fancy name, it was practically a six-month warranty that would replace the smartphone in case of cracked screens or water damage. Now HTC is taking one step further by rebranding the offer as "HTC UH OH". Now the coverage extends to a whole year and it benefits even those that meticulously take care of their devices.
