Black Friday 2014 is almost upon us, and we were this close to send y’all out for your holiday Android shopping without consideration for carrier deals. Rookie mistake on our part, and we apologize for it, although in our defense, it was only in the last couple of days that the promotions started cascading from the likes of Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. And let’s not forget Cricket Wireless, US Cellular, Boost Mobile, MetroPCS and Virgin Mobile. These smaller fighters in the service operator arena often try to compensate...

Sprint and Google have teamed up to offer a decent deal on the Nexus 6 smartphone this Black Friday. For every unit of the Nexus 6 sold between Friday the 28th of November and the 1st of December on Monday, customers will receive a $50 Google Play Store credit to spend on apps and other content across the store. This is Sprint and Google’s own way of pitching in on the Black Friday sales by offering an incentive to pick the Nexus 6 over other competitive offerings this shopping weekend. Bear in mind that you will have to be an...

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is expected to receive the Android 5.0 update by December. And now, the update for the Sprint version of the handset has just leaked out. This ROM can be flashed onto your Sprint branded Galaxy S5 and appears to be the final version of what will inevitably make its way to smartphones later next month. Although this ROM is running the latest Android 5.0 build supplied by Google, it’s not yet confirmed if it can be used on your primary device. Also note that flashing this ROM will void the warranty of your...

Customers can now walk into a Best Buy outlet to secure a unit of the Motorola Nexus 6 from Sprint. Although the AT&T model is expected to be available today as well, software issues might force Best Buy to send back units to the carrier or Motorola. But since the issue is only limited to AT&T’s variant, the Sprint model should be freely available should you walk over to a Best Buy outlet today. Stocks might differ depending on the region, so make sure you check with the local outlet beforehand. Some stores are reportedly...

Sprint started taking pre-orders for the Motorola Nexus 6 last week with a contract pricing of $299.99. This seemed a little too much and it’s clear that the carrier felt the same as it has now slashed the pricing to $249.99 when bought with a two year agreement. But what about customers who paid the full amount since the pre-orders began a few days ago? Well, Sprint has them covered as well, with a promise of refunding the $50 to customers. Fans have clearly not been impressed by Sprint’s pricing of the Nexus 6, which is...

Sprint has started rolling out the Android 4.4.4 update to its version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 just a few weeks after the global rollout began in late October. The update brings some enhancements to performance and the usual range of bug fixes, but nothing beyond that. The user interface and TouchWiz in general will mostly remain unchanged, with Samsung saving most of the changes for the major Android 5.0 update later this year. The update also brings support for international WiFi calling and an HD Voice icon on your device. As is the...

Samsung’s expensive curved display smartphone, the Galaxy Note Edge is now available for purchase through AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. The smartphone is also expected to arrive on Verizon, but there’s no specific word on when. Considering that three of the top four carriers are offering the device now, it shouldn’t take Verizon long to bring the device to its retail outlets. AT&T has priced the Galaxy Note Edge at $945 off contract or $399.99 with a two year agreement. You can also divide the payments in 20,...

The Sprint branded Nexus 6 has just gone up for pre-order earlier today. The handset was said to be available in stores today, but it seems like low supply issues have hit the carrier as well with T-Mobile already postponing the launch to next week. There’s still no word on when Sprint will start shipping the device to customers or carry the device in its stores, but our hunch says it could be sometime before the end of the month. The smartphone will set you back by $299.99 for the 32GB Midnight Blue variant, which is the only...
