Tonight has been a night of firmware updates for my phones. The Huawei Mate 9 (UK version) only received an update a week or so ago, but just like that, along came B156.
This adds a few new features and the mandatory bug fixes.
One of the most significant new features is 10 x zoom. So there is no hiding from me now!
The Google security patch has also improved from 1st December 2016 to 1st January 2017.
If you have a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, UK Sim Free and unlocked, check manually for a software update and you should be able to download a new firmware. This is 150.50mb in size.
After downloading the description of the software update reveals that it includes many stability improvements, performance improvements and new features.
– Improved Fingerprint recognition process
– Improved compatibility with accessories
– Enhanced interface of email, music, s planner and other apps
– New feature in photo editor
After the update, firmware is still based on androd 5.0.2, build changes to XXU1AOE3.
Screen shots are more to follow.
Update – I have now used the S6 Edge for a working day with the new firmware and it is a lot snappier, themes do not slow down the phone. However, I have still received one error message that an app had closed, so clearly the memory bug is only partically fixed. I believe lollipop 5.1 will fix the memory bug and add new features to the camera.
