We reviewed the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro a little while back and were impressed by the camera chops of the larger P20 Pro as well as its outstanding battery life. Having launched towards the tail-end of March at a lavish event in Paris, the question is what sort of sales figures Huawei’s P20 series has managed […]

Earlier this month, BlackBerry pushed their March update containing all the latest security patches to the Priv smartphone. According to sources, some carrier units have begun receiving the update.
While unlocked BlackBerry Priv units received the update a few weeks ago, some carrier variants are just beginning to receive it now. Some users on AT&T and T-Mobile have reported the arrival of the update on their Priv smartphone. Unfortunately, both carriers are yet to speak out about what has been fixed with the update, but one can assume that most of which is posted on BlackBerry’s site will be included. This will be liked below the article.
The update contains no major release, therefore it shouldn’t take up too much space. However, we still recommend charging your device and connected to a nearby Wi-Fi network before beginning the installation process. BlackBerry has taken updates with all seriousness since they began their transition to the Android ecosystem, let’s just hope it continues.

Samsung will manufacture 17.2 million Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones by the end of April, according to Korean news outlet ETNews.
Samsung has had a lot of success with its Galaxy S lineup, particularly with the GS6 and GS6 Edge. Combined, they sold a total of 15.8 million units within their first three months of sale. Samsung is anticipating even better results this year, especially with the raving response received for the upcoming Galaxy S7 Edge.
Another problem Samsung experienced last year was that the Galaxy S6 Edge was always in short supply because of a 4:1 ratio (one Edge for every four Galaxy S6’s manufactured). This time around Samsung has reportedly moved to a 6:4 ratio to hopefully keep up with the demand this time around.
Samsung announced the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge at its Unpacked event on February 21, just a day before Mobile World Congress began in Barcelona.
Currently, both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are up for pre-order at all the major carriers, slating both handsets for a March 11 launch.

According to LG, the company managed to sell 450,000 V10 units in the U.S. during its first 45 days of availability. This was reason enough to celebrate for a company that had a mediocre 2015.

The Nexus 6P is by no means a cheap phone. Google enlisted Huawei to make a premium device constructed of metal, but it seems that the Nexus 6P isn’t holding true to the $ 499 starting price. In October, rear panel glass was spontaneously shattering for some people. Quite bizarre, right? At least the most recent issue is very realistic and not nearly as random. The microphone’s functionality, according to multiple posts on the Google Product Forums, is posing a problem. There are owners of the Nexus 6P reporting that the phone’s microphone is not projecting their voice with strength or quality to people on the other end of a call.
Jamie Corbett, one of the Nexus 6P owners experiencing issues with his unit’s microphone, said the following in his post:
“While talking to my wife today she could barely hear me and said it sounded like I was very far away or muffled. This was while I had the headset to my ear like normal. If I put it on speaker, she said it would sound okay. I tried to find others with this issue and a similar issue, but couldn’t. Please help!”
Representatives on behalf of Google have only said that they are investigating the issue. One area that the company could be looking at is noise cancellation and the multiple microphones it takes to enable that. Apparently covering the microphone on the rear of the Nexus 6P alleviates the issue; however, others are discrediting that temporary solution and say it does nothing at all.
Let’s all just hope that Google can fix this through a software update instead of Huawei being forced to recall the Nexus 6P.
