Android device updates: HTC 10 is getting stability fixes and preview 3 is headed to Android N

HTC had a busy week in announcing the One M9, A9, and of course 10 will be first in line to get Android N when it exits beta.

You can forgive software teams everywhere for being a little distracted this week by all the news coming out of Google I/O. Frankly, we’re still trying to get the taste of the terrible hot dogs and sad French fries out of our mouth.

But that doesn’t means there are no updates to be had. Most are minor, but every little bit counts.

Each week, we compile all the major software updates to hit the Android ecosystem, including phones and tablets on U.S. carriers, unlocked phones, Android Wear smartwatches, and Android TV devices. Making sure your device is running the latest available software is a good housekeeping practice, ensuring you have the latest features with fewer bugs and gaping security holes.

HTC

HTC 10: This phone is relatively new to the wild, but there’s already a software update that improves camera performance, Wi-Fi stability, and fixes other bugs. HTC says you should connect to Wi-Fi and expect at least 20 minutes for the update process.

HTC 10, One A9, One M9: Android N is on everyone’s mind this week, so HTC took the opportunity to announce on Twitter that Android N will make its way to these three phones.

The final version is supposed to be available later this year, and HTC has a pretty good track record of pushing out updates. So if this is your phone, definitely stay tuned.

Nexus

Android N Preview: If you’re running Android N, it’s time to check out Preview 3. The update was announced at Google I/O, and should be available if you’re running the beta on a compatible device. It finally enables Android Pay and makes several under-the-hood improvements.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
