Remember that Samsung tablet you got with Sprint on the cheap? You know, that one you threw to the kids? Oh, you’re still using it yourself?! Well, rejoice, as KitKat is finally upon you. Sprint is rolling the update out to the 7-inch tablet that could and it comes with a build number of T217SVPUBNE7. So, you should know what comes with KitKat by now, but for the Galaxy Tab 3 that means a few visual tweaks here and there as well as expanded emoji and some changes to the lockscreen.

The budget-minded Xperia SP is being treated to another small update this week, bringing the software version up to 12.1.A.1.205. This is a very small update to the SP, and mostly focuses on the display and shortens the charging time on the device as well as numerous bug fixes and updates.

UK HTC One M7 Gets Sense 6 Update

AH HTC ONE REVIEW 11

If you’re in the UK and have an unlocked HTC One M7, then you’ll be getting the update to HTC’s Sense 6 software this week. However, if you’re on a contract and you’re with Three or O2, then you’ll also be getting the update. You’re probably wondering what this update gets you and well, all this really does is bring your software in line with many of the features found in the HTC One (M8) and it pretties things up a little bit as well, so overall it’s a nice update to have, but nothing too amazing we suppose.

The build number after the update will be I527UCUBNE7 and for those wondering, yes, Beats Music now comes preinstalled. For the full changelog you can take a look here.

AT&T Endows LG’s G2 with Knock Code at Long Last

Knock Code was one of the bigger features to launch with the G Pro 2 and subsequently the G3. LG quickly sent this update to the G2, but it’s taken this long for AT&T to finally deliver it to the G2 on their network. This latest update comes in at just 39MB, and shouldn’t take long to install or get up and running with. Knock Code will allow you to tap a sort of code into your G2 before the device will unlock, pretty neat, right?
