One of the best things about owning a smartphone, besides all of the cool features and things it can do, are the updates. It’s a great way to breathe a breath of fresh air into a device, even if it is just to squash some pesky bugs or faults. There’s usually some kind of new feature thrown in for good measure, even if it’s a specific feature that you may never use. An update is never a bad thing (unless it breaks your phone, which is very bad), so if you’ve got yourself an HTC EVO 3D or plan on picking up the Samsung Conquer 4G when it launches later this month, you’ll be happy to know an update is (and will be) ready for you.
First off, the HTC EVO 3D. The device’s maintenance update will bring your device’s software up to 2.08.651.2, and will be pushed to your device on August 23rd. But, if you can’t wait to get your hands on the update now, and you need some major bug fixes right now, you can go ahead and head into the Settings, head into System Updates, find HTC Software Update, and finally select Check Now. After selecting OK and yes, you should be shown that you’ve got an update ready for your device, which will fix things like the device’s lockscreen being stuck in a weird “half-state,” or the reported lock-ups in the Spider-Man demo that’s available on the device.
Now then, there’s the update for the Samsung Conquer 4G. As you can see from the image above, it’s said that the update will be made available to owners of the device on August 21st. That date should sound familiar to those keeping track of the device’s launch date, because that’s the same day it’s hitting store shelves. So, as soon as you power on your phone you will more than likely be prompted with an available update. But, for those expecting a lot from the update, try not to be disappointed in that it’s only a security patch, so nothing much to find. But hey, it’s an update.
