Nougat-powered LG Aristo arriving at MetroPCS for just $59 on January 23

In this day and age where new phones are still being released with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, it’s great to hear about new, budget-friendly handsets that are running the latest version of Android out of the box. In this case, MetroPCS will be selling such a phone, the LG Aristo, for just $59 starting on Monday, January 23. That price comes after a $70 instant rebate.

The 5-inch phone has a display resolution of 1280 x 720. Inside, the LG Aristo will have a 1.4GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 processor, along with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of on-board storage, and a microSD card slot that can increase that storage by up to 32GB. It also has a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera, and a removable 2,410mAh battery. It also sports a rear-mounted fingerprint reader below the camera..

Obviously, the hardware specs on the LG Aristo are on the lower end, but this phone might be good to get for a secondary device, and it does have the latest Android OS version pre-installed, which is definitely a plus.

If you don’t want to mess with buying a phone from MetroPCS, its parent company, T-Mobile, will sell the same device on January 25. It will cost $144 for its full retail price, or you can get it $0 down and just $6 per month for 24 months.

Microsoft internally testing Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.218, arriving this week?

Microsoft is currently testing a new cumulative update for Windows 10 Mobile (and we assume desktop too) that packs more bug fixes and performance improvements. Last week, the company had build 10586.212 in testing but sources now say build 10586.218 has been promoted to the company-wide ring, meaning Insiders are next in line to receive the bits.

WinBeta can confirm that this new cumulative update fixes a bug on Mobile that involved the apps list not dimming the background when opening and closing apps, making it difficult to read text sometimes. There are likely more bug fixes included in this cumulative patch, so when it arrives keep an eye out on any other fixes.

This new cumulative update may arrive this week if history is anything to go by, as Microsoft is rather fond of releasing new updates on Patch Tuesday (which is tomorrow). Fingers crossed, but in the meantime stay tuned at WinBeta for more news regarding Windows 10 updates, features and more.
