28

The unlocked European Samsung Galaxy S5 (SM-G900F) is today receiving an over-the-air update with "improved performance." It's the second major update for the European version of Samsung's 2014 flagship, the first having arrvied a month after the device first went on sale. The upgrade comes in two parts — first, a 194MB update, then immediately after, another 1MB update, both updates touting the aforementioned performance tweaks. After all that, you're bumped up to firmware version XXU1ANG2, which is still based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat.

All the LG G3 you love, with plenty of AT&T piled on for flavor

All of us here at the AC office are pretty much in love with the LG G3. We're not even going to try and deny it, nor should we. This is a damn good phone. It was good when Alex first reviewed it (and that is a must-read) and I was happy when Phil shipped me the AT&T version to have a long hard look at. I've been looking long and looking hard for about a week now, and it's time to put some words on some paper. Or a screen. You know what I mean.

European LG G3 gets first firmware update

7

The European LG G3 — the LG-D855 if you want to get technical — has today received its first over-the-air update, landing on firmware version 10e. Unlocked G3s in the UK and parts of Asia, where the D855 is also sold, seem to be first with this update; other countries and carrier variants likely to get the update in the days and weeks ahead. It's not entirely clear what's new in v10e, but the update dialog refers to app updates or "power optimizations" depending on region. In any case, it's still based upon Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and our Euro G3 doesn't seem to have changed too much after applying this latest update.

HTC One E8 versus M8: What's the difference?

HTC One E8 vs M8

The HTC One E8 is upon us, and we've got our hands on the lighter, polycarbonate version of HTC's flagship targeted at Russia, India and parts of Asia. As we've pointed out in our coverage so far, the E8 is essentially the internals of the HTC One M8 in a plastic case with a different camera. But beyond that there are actually quite a few smaller differences to get to grips with. For instance, only one has an IR blaster, and there are some LED flash differences too.

Check the table below for the full E8 vs M8 breakdown.
