On Wednesday, ZTE started rolling out a software update to two flagship devices sold in the United States. The Axon and Axon Pro (reviewed here) are getting improvements to their cameras, security patches from Google, and better wireless signals.
Included in the software update is T-Mobile’s WiFi calling, a quick launch button for the camera, faster focus and improved white balance, improved camera zooming, Google-issued security patches, Qualcomm-issued modem patches, and the ability to use MetroPCS as an APN. Not every item, though, is eligible for both the Axon and Axon Pro. The WiFi calling and camera quality updates are only for the Axon Pro while the Axon’s camera gets better zooming. The remaining updates are for both phones.
ZTE has not specified the size of either phone’s update, but both come with at least 32GB of internal storage. And nothing here is particularly substantial. The same probably won’t be said when ZTE rolls out Marshmallow for its Axon devices.

Snapchat released an update this morning with a new way of viewing your snaps. Instead of having to hold your finger down in order to view the snap you can now just tap a new snap or story once to view it all. The update also brought a new feature that allows users to customize their Snapcodes or so called BooR code. You can now take a selfie and add it to you code and make it a little more personal or make it easier for others to recognize you when wanting to friend you. The update allows you to share your code to your contacts in case they haven’t added you to make it even easier to friend someone.
