That’s right folks, the Nexus 9 doesn’t have Android 5.1 yet, but the Google Play Edition of the LG G Pad 8.3 is getting it this week. We can’t be bitter though, the G Pad 8.3 is a great tablet, and we’re sure Google have their reasons. Either way, those running Android 5.0 will get an update that’s around 200MB in size and it should be available on your device right now. If not, then the OTA link from Google has been located and here it is.

Samsung might be launching the Galaxy S6 today all over the globe, but there are other Samsung devices to think about and in Canada, that means Lollipop for the Galaxy Note 4 is available! The update is a pretty hefty one that comes in at almost a full gigabyte, but it will leave your device on Android 5.0.2. It’s now rolled out to users on Bell, TELUS, Koodo, Videotron, SaskTel and WIND Mobile as well as Rogers, so have at it guys!

The giant Z Ultra from Sony, not to be confused with the Xperia Z Ultra, is getting Android 5.1 this week. It looks like Google Play Editions really did live up to the whole “not-a-Nexus-but-secretly-a-Nexus” thing after all. The 6.4-inch giant has been updated to build LMY47D and the OTA link has been found and those interested can download it directly from Google here.

You know the drill by now, it’s Lollipop, it adds flatter, more colorful design to your device but for the most part TouchWiz will remain the same. The software version you’re looking for is G900R4VXU1BOC1 and more information is available from US Cellular.

We recently reviewed the HTC One M9 and while we thought the camera looked pretty great, there were many that disagreed, and so HTC have readied an update to make the camera better overall. The above is a screenshot of the update and the software number. Basically, the only thing that has changed here is the camera. We haven’t been able to test this out just yet, but we will do that’s for sure.
