Sprint and T-Mobile were among the last to begin 4G LTE services, so it’s understandable that they’re still catching up to Verizon and AT&T’s numbers. Below are the 17 new markets to get Sprint’s 4G LTE signals for the first time: Auburn, N.Y. Bethesda, Md. Bloomsburg/Berwick, Pa. Burlington, N.C. Danville, Ill. Dubuque,...

Verizon’s variant of the LG G Pad 8.3 has started receiving the Android 4.4.2 update, long after the unlocked variants started getting the update.

This is in addition to the customary Android 4.4.2 related changes such as new notification bar icons, support for cloud printing and the ability to create multiple user accounts.

The Huawei Ascend Mate 2 phablet was made available in the U.S. not too long ago. And now, AnTuTu has already revealed the successor in its benchmark listing, suggesting yet another massive device with a decent hardware inside.

The display size is mentioned to be 6.1 inches with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, which is in line with the current crop of flagships....

We’re well aware that Google is looking to launch a new Nexus tablet in the coming weeks. And given the imminent arrival of a successor, it’s not unexpected for the current flagship tablet to slowly go out of rotation. And that seems to have already begun if the U.S. Play Store is any indication. At the moment, the American Play Store only has stocks of the 32GB GSM LTE model, with the AT&T/T-Mobile LTE versions as well as the WiFi only variants listed as “out of inventory”. Is this a sign of the obvious or...

According to new reports emerging out of Korea, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will feature a “far better” hardware compared to the Galaxy S5 and will break cover on September 3, just days before the IFA event kicks off in Berlin.
