Android 4.4.3 to Begin Rolling Out to Nexus 4, 5, and 7 (2013), According to T-Mobile [Update: They’re Here!]

Update: They’re here for the Nexus 4, 5, 7 (both), and 10! Head over to this post to get in on the action!

You may recall back in the middle of April, Sprint erroneously stated that Android 4.4.3 would begin rolling out to the Nexus 5. We now know that this didn’t quite come to pass, as all of our Nexus devices are still currently officially running Android 4.4.2. Now, however, we have reason to believe that Android 4.4.3 may finally begin rolling out to current generation Nexus devices today.

This news comes from T-Mobile software update support documents stating that both the Google Nexus 5 and Google Nexus 7 (2013) will be receiving their respective doses of the 4.4.3 goods starting today. The build for the Nexus 5 is said to come in at build number KTU84M, while the Nexus 7 flavor is KTU84L. According to the support documents linked at the bottom of this article, both updates come in at 54 MB and bring “security enhancements,” as well as “various bug fixes.” Given the former, it’s quite possible that all the potential root app breakage that we’ve covered in the past will come to light. In addition, we’ll probably see fixes to various device-specific tweaks such as camera and data connectivity issues.

These updates have not yet begun making their way to consumer devices, Google has not yet updates its factory images page, and we don’t yet have captured update URLs. In fact, it’s quite possible that we may not even see 4.4.3 today, just like what happened with Sprint a month-and-a-half ago. But given how much progress has been made towards 4.4.3, we wouldn’t be surprised if 4.4.3 starts making its way to consumer devices today. Time to start mashing that check for updates button, I suppose!

T-Mobile Galaxy S6 Battery Woes

I've been using a T-Mobile Galaxy S6 since the device launched with T-mobile's service. However, over this past holiday weekend I knew I would be in an area without reliable T-Mobile service. So, I opened up T-Mobile's default "Device Unlock" app , pressed unlock, and placed my AT&T SIM card in the device. Everything seemed to be working fine: strong signal, great LTE, good voice calls - until day 3. On Sunday, my Galaxy S6 felt very hot to the touch and...

Earthquake Early Warning in Your Pocket

Probably all of us reading this have a smartphone in our pocket. For many of us, the smartphone has become our primary method of reading and writing e-mails, messaging, and browsing the web. Though proclamations that "smartphones have replaced the personal computer" typically fall on deaf ears, the statements aren't without merit. Indeed, smartphones have "replaced"—or more accurately, "displaced"—PC's in several areas that they have traditionally been dominant. But how many of you look into your pocket, or on your desk, and...
