Both the HTC One M8 and the E8 are almost the same phone, aside from the cameras and slight other differences. So it seems normal that they would get updates at the same time. Today Sprint has released OTA updates for both devices with many new enhancements. Both devices now have support for international Wi-Fi calling, so if you’re traveling abroad and make calls to US, Puerto Rico, or the Virgin Islands, there will be no charge. But if you’re calling another country, you’ll still have to pay the roaming rates. There...

In order to compete with the other national carriers, Sprint has cut the prices their data plans again. If you don’t use much data between many people, the new plan can be very compelling. For just $20 per month, you can get 1 GB of data to share with up to 10 lines, before access fees. So it’s just the data plan that’s $20, before you add any devices to your monthly plan. This is still a good deal though, if you have Sprint coverage and do not use much data per month. Will you be taking advantage of this deal? Source:...

Samsung was also believed to be in the list although the company made no official statement about it. That changes now with Samsung posting a teaser on Twitter...

Microsoft has just launched two new apps for Android known as Next Lock Screen and Journeys and Notes. The Redmond giant has also introduced an app specifically meant for Android Wear devices known as Torque. All three apps are free, so you can try them all. Next Lock Screen is essentially a replacement for your standard lock screen. It’s pretty simplistic in nature and doesn’t come with too many fancy features to make it stand out from the crowd of lockscreen apps that we see around us. It’s nothing out of the ordinary,...

Sony is clearly not having a good time in the industry despite launching stellar hardware like the Xperia Z3 and a wide variety of devices over the past year or so. But due to the continued dominance of companies like Samsung, LG and even HTC to some extent, the Japanese manufacturer has been struggling to make an impact on the global audience. And while that could change this quarter when the Xperia Z3v launches through America’s largest carrier, the company has reportedly slashed its income targets in successive quarters, bringing...
