    As Sony gets ready to bring Android Lollipop to the original Xperia Z, we've got updates for classic phones on our mind. As smartphones age, there's less and less chance of them continuing to receive official updates, and once a couple years pass, ongoing updates seem to be the exception rather than the rule.

    Sony is neck deep in Lollipop updates right now, and when it's not seeding the latest Android builds for its flagship Xperia Z-series models, it's making a few available for lesser-ranked Xperia handsets.

    So far this year, Samsung hasn't had much in the way of exciting new tablets. Sure, there have been devices like the Galaxy Tab 3 V or the Galaxy Tab A, but none of them with really killer hardware; if anything, the only notable move has been the way Samsung switched to a 4:3 aspect screen for the Tab A. But while the ...
