Android phones are the top-selling devices in the world today with Google recently announcing that they are currently activating 1.3 million handsets every single day.

There is a problem with that method though, thanks to the staggered release cycle. Even if your phone has an update available, if your carrier hasn’t yet scheduled your device then this method alone will not find that update.
