T-Mobile starts rolling out Android 7.0 Nougat for LG V10

If you happen to own the T-Mobile V10, then you’ve been waiting for about two months for the carrier to deploy the Android 7.0 Nougat update. LG was pretty fast on delivering the update, as the South Korean company kicked off the roll-out of Nougat for V10 back in May.

Well, it looks like the wait is over for T-Mobile customers who purchase the LG V10. The Uncarrier confirmed recently that Android 7.0 Nougat is available for download to everyone who owns the V10.

Aside from all the new features and improvements that Android 7.0 Nougat is supposed to bring, …

Best US carrier? This Verizon vs AT&T vs T-Mobile vs Sprint coverage maps GIF tells all

The second we read that Verizon has earned third place in average LTE network speeds according to Ookla’s crowd-sourced measurements, we knew what was coming from T-Mobile, and, soon enough, its CTO Neville Ray took to a blog post to comment condescendingly on the matter. After all, it topped the average speeds for a 14th quarter in a row, while Verizon slipped to a third place. T-Mobile’s CTO didn’t hold back, explaining how Verizon and AT&T networks “caved” under the unlimited pressure:

The real news is how dramatically both AT&T and Verizon’s …

T-Mobile is the fastest LTE network in the U.S. for 14th straight quarter; Verizon now 3rd

T-Mobile has been bragging that its network is more suited for unlimited 4G LTE service than its rivals. And some of this has actually been borne out by data mined by Ookla, the creator of the Speedtest app, and analyzed by the carrier itself. T-Mobile has now gone 14 consecutive quarters with the fastest network in the U.S. While a chart posted by T-Mobile shows the latter’s data speeds continuing to move higher, T-Mobile Chief Technical Officer Neville Ray pointed out that the chart reveals what happens when “carriers jump into unlimited without doing the hard work to make sure their networks …

T-Mobile says Daydream VR capability is now live on the Galaxy S8 and S8+, but it's not

Google and Samsung have promised to bring Daydream VR support to the Galaxy S8 and S8+ later this year. Unfortunately, since the announcement doesn’t contain any explicit timeframes, it’s almost impossible to guess when Daydream support will arrive on Samsung’s flagships.

However, it appears that U.S. carrier T-Mobile jumped the gun on the matter and confirmed that the last week’s update for Galaxy S8 and S8+ added Daydream VR support. It’s the same update that blocked Bixby remapping apps and added June security patch.

Sadly, Daydream support on T-Mobile’s …

LG G3 gets 2G/3G data roaming fixes at T-Mobile, three years after release

Here is what perseverance may mean to some people. It appears that T-Mobile and LG continue to support the G3, the South Korean company’s main flagship launched back in June 2014.

Unfortunately, it’s not the elusive Android 7.0 Nougat update that many LG G3 owners have expected. Still, it’s nice to know that companies like LG continue to support their products even after they become nearly obsolete.

The new Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update software version D85130g is now being pushed to LG G3 units at T-Mobile. As the title says, the update is supposed to …
