Sprint’s LG G Stylo gets Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTA

Sprint’s LG G Stylo is getting an update to android Marshmallow. The device got to Sprint in June and it didn’t make that much of a fuss then because it is basically a generic big-screen low-price device with a built-in stylus. The device may not be on your most important devices to update by the end of the year, but here we are.

 

LG G Stylo

 

Sprint officially announced Android 6.0 for LG G Stylo, and it should be rolling out to all devices starting today. It may take a week to get to ALL devices in the US, but it is happening. This is the third official update for the device, which seems to be easy to update or popular among Android devs!

 

The T Mobile G Stylo version did not receive its Marshmallow flavor yet, but we hope it will happen soon.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge from Sprint gets OTA to Android 5.1

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge from Sprint is getting an OTA to Lollipop today. The device has not been forgotten (yet) and it is joining many others in the Android 5.1 club. The device was already running on 5.0, so this will not be a monumental change, but a good one nonetheless.

 

Galaxy note Edge

 

 

Sprint does not provide a very helpful changelog, but it does mention the Android 5.1 update and some bug fixes. This is supposed to include the known fixes other devices have already received. The OTA brings Galaxy Note Edge to version N915PVPU4COFE, and it may take a few days for it to reach all devices.

 

Keep in mind that, if you made any software changes to your curved edge Samsung device, the update will fail and you will need to bring your device to a stock Android version to be able to properly update.

Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note 4 gets OTA with factory reset and minor bug fixes

Sprint is on an update roll and next in line is Samsung Galaxy Note 4, who gets factory reset protection. The feature made its first appearance in Android Lollipop and it can make phones tougher to break by thieves in terms of software as it requires users to always enter a passkey before wiping their handsets. This way, stolen devices cannot be sold to others because they are not cleared of personal data.

The update also presents some unnamed bug fixes that don’t really deserve to be mentioned as long as they are fixed, right? The OTA brings Note 4 to software version N910PVPU2BOE1 and it rolls out in stage so it may take a few hours to reach all devices.
