LG’s premier flagship of the year, the LG G3 will be launching through U.S. Cellular next month for as little as $99.99 on contract. Customers also have the option to choose the monthly installment plan at $0 down and $20.84 per month for a period of two years. This translates to roughly around $500 if you’re looking to get the smartphone off contract. The smartphone’s arrival on U.S. Cellular has been long overdue as other major carriers of the U.S. have been selling the smartphone for quite a while now. The LG G3 is...

In a move that’s probably due to the barrage of new Android Wear and Samsung Gear devices, Pebble has announced new permanent price cuts for the original Pebble and Pebble Steel, along with a big software update. First, the original Pebble now costs only $100, down from its original non-Kickstarter price of $150. It was only $100 for original backers, so now you can pay the price the backers did to get one. In England the new price is £99, and for the rest of Europe, the Pebble is now €129. The Pebble Steel is now only $200,...

The existence of the Motorola Droid Turbo is barely a surprise to us. But since it’s still a rumored device, we’re learning something new about it almost every week.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has officially gone up for pre-order via Sprint over the weekend. Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have already started taking pre-orders for the smartphone, so it was only a matter of time before Sprint joined in on the action too.

Sprint’s Easy Pay option allows you to pay the full retail price at $30 per month for a period of 24 months. While Sprint’s contract pricing is slightly more than other carriers,...

In a move to most likely combat T-Mobile’s and Sprint’s efforts in lowering data costs, AT&T has just announced that many of their data plans will be doubling in size for a limited time.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 Active smartphone on AT&T is receiving a minor update which fixes some bugs and brings updated Google apps. This is slightly odd as Google apps are available through the Play Store and are updated independently of the carrier or manufacturer. AT&T also mentions connectivity related improvements in the changelog. The update is 127MB in size, so you don’t necessarily need to be on a WiFi connection to download this. The update changes the build number to KOT49H.I537UCUCNH3. It is possible that the root...

The update changes the software version to 4.09.605.5, so make a note of that if you are yet to see it on the Droid DNA. This is a standard...
