Samsung’s flagship handsets — the Galaxy S8 and S8+ — have received ravishing reviews from major publications and consumers alike. However, one common complaint that most users have had with the handset is that they have been facing Wi-Fi connectivity issues. Most users are complaining that their Galaxy S8 fails to connect to WiFi networks or the connection automatically disconnects after a few minutes of use.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are the first Galaxy handsets from the Korean company to lack a physical home button. Instead, they come with an on-screen home button similar to many other Android devices. This makes the process of taking a screenshot on the handsets slightly different from previous Galaxy devices.
Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4 and Redmi 4A have turned out to be incredibly popular in India. The Redmi Note 4 especially has been incredibly popular in India which can be understood from the fact that the handset sold 1 million units within 45 days of going on sale. And the company’s latest budget wonder, the Redmi 4A, is also on track to break the sales record set by previous Redmi devices.
LG was the last major OEM to continue including a handy IR blaster on its flagship devices. The G5 might have been a disaster for the company, but some people purchased the handset solely because it had an IR blaster. Sadly, with the G6, LG is not only ditching the removable battery but also the IR blaster.
Lenovo has not particularly done a good job in updating its handsets with VoLTE support for Reliance Jio. Out of the plethora of handsets that the company has launched over the last couple of years, only a handful of them like the Vibe K5 Note support Jio’s VoLTE network and even that was added with a software update a few months after the carrier’s launch.
The Lenovo K6 Power and K6 Note are great phones for their respective price. While not as good as Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 4, the handsets are still pretty good and offer great value for money. However, many Lenovo K6 Power/Note users have recently been complaining about issues with the microphone of the handsets.
When Will Lenovo K6 Power, K5 Note, K4 Note and Other Lenovo Phones Get the Android 7.0 Nougat Update?
With the OnePlus 3/3T and many Sony Xperia handsets getting the Android 7.0 Nougat update, owners of Lenovo handsets like the Vibe K5 Note and K4 Note are also wondering as to when their device will be updated to the latest and sweetest version of Android yet.
