Huawei Mate 30 Pro gets another bug-fixer, Galaxy A7 2017 October security update arrives

Huawei is one of the many Android device makers that have been criticized for slowing down software updates for their devices due to heavy skins atop AOSP. But the Chinese company has improved big time in recent years.

It seems things are getting even better with the Huawei Mate 30 Pro now that the device doesn’t come with Google Mobile Services (pun intended). Software updates have been plenty for those who already bought this beast of a phone.

The OTA weighs in at 221MB and has a pair of changelogs. The first one says the new update fixes an issue where copy and paste would not work in some third-party apps and improves system stability.

The second changelog mentions display optimizations for some games when the screen resolution is customized. Being an OTA update, it will take time to hit all units.
