The LG G4 on AT&T is next up for a fix for the “Stagefright” exploit. An over-the-air update is now pushing out to the smartphone with “device security improvements” listed as the only change.

According to AT&T’s support page, the update clocks in at 46.7MB large. After you snag the download and install the update, you should be on software version number H81010l and Android 5.1 build LMY47D. The update should be pushing out now, but it may take a day or two to show up for your device. If you’d like to check manually, you can do so from your phone’s settings menu.

Thanks to Trutz for the tip!

Once again, we’re putting two budget priced Android phones — the Moto G 2015 and the ASUS ZenFone 2 — against each other to see who comes out on top.

We have four major criteria a smartphone needs to get right before we can recommend them to anyone: Performance, Display quality, Battery Life and Camera. We chose these categories based on the results of a recent poll where we asked everyone what they thought was most important, and I think it’s a great mix.

See how these two phones matchup, and which one gets crowned the winner.

The PLAYBULB Color can be controlled straight from your smartphone for unique lighting that goes great with your favorite playlists.

Taking smart lighting to the next level is the PLAYBULB Color, similar to its sibling the PLAYBULB Rainbow, only with a 3W speaker added around the bulb that provides easy listening anywhere you decide to twist it in. Compatible with standard E26 and E27 screw base light sockets, this light connects to your Android or iOS device over Bluetooth, but requires the free PLAYBULB X app to control colors, effects, and set up special groups for managing multiple bulbs simultaneously.

Sure, next week is IFA 2015, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have news now!

We’re still putting the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 through its paces, but we got one surprise this week: if you put the stylus in backwards, it sticks and will probably break your phone when you try to pull it out (if you can). So don’t do that. Apple also announced the date for the anticipated iPhone 6s launch event, more photos of the BlackBerry Venice Android slider leaked out, as did the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL and their Continuum dock.

It’s time for Mobile Nations Weekly!
