Asus Transformer Prime Update Rolling Out, First Impressions Seem Positive

Transformer Prime users rejoice: a new update is rolling out which brings some much needed bug fixes, especially to hardware functions such as WiFi and Bluetooth. Many users have been complaining about low WiFi reception and general WiFi problems when Bluetooth is enabled. Together with the WiFi and Bluetooth packages, the kernel received an update too, bringing its version number to 2.6.39. Even though some users don’t really seem to notice any WiFi performance improvement, a lot of people do get better WiFi reception.

Since the update, one thing all users agree with is the fact that the overall performance of the Transformer Prime has gotten much better. The lockup and reboot issues seem to be fixed, games and apps not only load quicker but also seem to run much more stable. Skeptical readers saying this has something to do with the placebo effect are wrong – XDA Member Darkseider brought some interesting facts to the table: benchmark results are 5% to 8% better than before the update.

One downside is the fact that the Ad-Hoc tethering bug is still not fixed – though a fix for that problem has been created by XDA Senior Member Darkseider. If your Prime is rooted, make sure you use Voodoo OTA Rootkeeper to keep getting the best out of it.  Visit the Transformer Prime Update thread to join the discussion or read other people’s feedback.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
