1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!
    Google will reportedly take control of firmware updates as a result of OEMs being slow
    The Register is reporting that Google is getting tired of OEMs taking so long to push out core Android updates to the billions of devices out there.

    An analyst with Edison Investment Research says that in response, Google will be "moving the entire OS into its services layer known as Google Mobile Services (GMS)"
  1. Does this mean no more new bloatware or is Verizon just gonna hijack it and ensure that it's delivered four months late anyway?

    yes, I just experienced a Google firmware update on my HTC M9 / Sprint on 2/18 .. I next morning , awoke and found that I lost all phone history , text history , phone and text contacts , and voicemail .. tried resyncing all for past few days and receive message " syncing is experiencing problems , try back later " Sprint and HTC blame Google ,, my employees names and cell phones , business contacts , voicemails , etc about 1000 items have vanished without warning

    Unless you had a Nexus or Android One phone, it was HTC via Sprint that pushed the firmware update on your phone.
