Sprint says Android 5.1 Lollipop for the Nexus 6 is due to land today, with SMS/MMS fixes and factory reset protection.
Following the recent availability of Android 5.1 factory images for the Nexus 5, 10 and 7 (2012), it looks like Google's latest Nexus phone is next on the list. U.S. operator Sprint has updated its Nexus 6 support pages indicating that the same build — LMY47D — is set to roll...
The research firm DisplayMate has determined the newly announced Samsung Galaxy S6 is tied with the older Galaxy Note 4 for best smartphone display.
Samsung sent DisplayMate, which regularly tests smartphone and tablet screens, pre-production models of both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge to check out. Both have the same type of display, with a 5.1 inch high resolution Quad HD 2560x1440...
The handful of new APIs in the new Lollipop release focus on cellular and telephony.
Hot on the heels of yesterday's Android 5.1 Lollipop announcement, Google has released the Android 5.1 SDK to developers, along with details of the dev-facing stuff contained in the new version of the OS. Firstly, Android 5.1 brings the platform up to API level 22, which includes new APIs for devices with more...
Android 5.1, the first Lollipop maintenance release, is on the way
Update: Google has officially announced Android 5.1 Lollipop, which will begin rolling out from today.
Original story: As tends to happen shortly before Nexus updates start rolling out, T-Mobile has updated its support documents with references to a new update for the Nexus 5. Android 5.1 Lollipop build LMY47D is to begin...
The over-the-air update is starting its roll out to the owners of the smartphone one day earlier than first announced by HTC.
We have received a tip from a member of Android Central's forums that the Android 5.0 Lollipop update for the T-Mobile HTC One M7 has started. Last week, HTC's Vice President of Product Management Mo Versi indicated that the OTA update would start on Tuesday.
Does it really matter which end the 3.5 mm headphone jack is on? For some it's a deal-breaker.
Take a swing through our Galaxy S6 forums and you'll find a pretty good thread on one of the more controversial but equally important changes to this year's flagship phone. Actually, on both the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. That is to say, the bottom of the phone has changed a good bit.
Vodafone has just announced that the UK mobile operator is offering the HTC One M9 for pre-order. Following on the heels of EE, the company has the smartphone listed on plans that start from £26.50 a month. Unfortunately, the gold variant is not available through Vodafone, thanks to an exclusivity deal with EE.

Unveiled earlier this year at CES, Asus' ZenFone 2 is now available for sale in Taiwan. The variant with 4GB RAM (ZE551ML) is up for sale for the equivalent of $290, along with two models — ZE550ML and ZE500CL — that offer a more modest 2GB RAM.
Verizon Wireless has announced that pre-order for Samsung's latest flagship devices will begin on April 1, 2015.
While the pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge will begin on April 1, there's no word yet on an exact release date on Verizon. Both devices were announced earlier this week during MWC 2015.
Ed. Note: The 2015 Moto E, released in early March, will remain on Android 5.1 Lollipop and not be updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which was made available some seven months later. As such it is not a smartphone we can recommend purchasing.
The 2015 Moto E is now available from Sprint Prepaid and Boost Mobile, and is coming to Virgin Mobile on Monday, March 9.
Pictures really don't do the HTC One M9 justice. You've got to hold this phone for yourself to really get a sense for the difference the small changes make. But we'll do what we can with some of our best shots.
As we're finally catching our breath after a ridiculously awesome Mobile World Congress, let's take a quick look at one of the hotter phones of the show. That would be, of course, the...

HTC has rolled out a couple of new promotional videos today, one of which is narrated by none other than Robert Downey Jr.
Between the two videos, we get a good introduction to the look of the HTC One M9, as well as feel-good message about the oneness of humanity.
