Wirefly has released the results of its latest Speed Test, which compares the download and uploads speeds of AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon. These tests cover Q4 2017 and Q1 2018.

The carrier with the fastest overall speeds in the U.S. in Wirefly’s Speed Test is Verizon, which posted an average overall speed of 19.92Mbps. AT&T came in second with 18.26Mbps, T-Mobile in third with 17.29Mbps, and Sprint in fourth with 14.77Mbps. This differs from the 1H 2017 report, which saw T-Mo in first, Verizon in second, AT&T in third, and Sprint in fourth.

A few days after AT&T began updating its Galaxy Note 8 to Android 8.0 Oreo, two other major U.S. carriers have starting doing the same thing.

Android 8.0 Oreo is now arriving for the Verizon and Sprint versions of the Galaxy Note 8. PhoneDog readers Steve and Travis began getting their updates early this morning, and several Note 8 owners on Reddit have received their updates as well.

Verizon Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update

The update to Android 8.0 Oreo brings with it new features like picture-in-picture, autofill, and notification dots. Also included is the March 1, 2018 Android security patch and some Samsung-specific improvements.

These updates are now rolling out over the air, so if you’ve got a Galaxy Note 8 on Verizon or Sprint, you should see it over the coming days. You can also check for it manually by going into your Settings app.

Now we wait to see when T-Mobile will push out its own Galaxy Note 8 Oreo update.

Verizon may launch a new Palm device in the second half of this year, an anonymous source told Android Police. The rumor backs up what a TCL executive said last August, when he confirmed to Dutch publication Android Planet that the company would launch a Palm phone this year. TCL did not respond to comments when we reached out at the time, despite previous reports that the company had no plans for the Palm.

There are little details beyond a supposed release date for this new device. According to Android Police’s report, the phone is expected to run on Android OS, and TCL has reportedly returned to Palm’s erstwhile partner, Verizon, for the impending release.
