[FTF Available] Sony Xperia M Dual Now Also Receives Android 4.3

About a week ago, the  started receiving its official update to Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. While not KitKat, it at least proves that Sony still wants to show its mid-range device  some official firmware lovin’. Naturally, many Xperia M Dual (C2005) owners wondered when the dual-sim variant would receive the update. Thankfully, that time is now.

XDA Forum Member navidhz first shared the news early yesterday, and it was later confirmed by Sony on the Xperia M Dual’s official firmware page. And just like its single-SIM sibling, the update brings Android 4.3 and a host of minor improvements such as a smoother UI, an updated battery stamina mode, new first party apps, and security enhancements. But unlike last week’s 15.4.A.0.23 update for the Xperia M, today’s update for the X Dual comes in at version 15.5.A.0.18.

The update is currently rolling out to consumer devices, and should also be available through Sony’s PC Companion. But for those who’d like to install the update a bit more directly, XDA Senior Member mbc07 was kind enough to repackage the update into a flashable FTF.

Head over to the update thread to get in on the discussion. And if you’d like to update with the FTF file directly, head over to mbc07’s mirror.

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...
