Google will require regular security patches for smartphones going forward

Ask anyone what their biggest gripe with Android is, and one of the most common answers will likely be the updates. Or, rather, the lack of updates.

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.

The remaining updates are for both phones.
