We’ve been speculating about the launch and hardware of the Moto X successor for quite a few months now. And all this while, we were under the impression that the device would be known as the Moto X+1. However, a leaked Verizon document contradicts this theory by mentioning the upcoming Motorola flagship as the “The new Moto X”. This makes sense as we’ve only recently encountered a Moto G leak which suggested a similar naming pattern for the handset. Going by this, it’s fair to assume that we will be looking...

In the midst of all the flagships that are preparing to break cover over the next week, midrange devices are not given much love. But Verizon has managed to grab our attention by announcing a rare midrange offering from Motorola known as the Luge. The smartphone is essentially a re-branded version of the Droid Razr M from 2012, but for prepaid customers of Verizon. The price tag is quite decent at $199.99 without no contractual obligations, so Verizon is clearly going to attract a lot of attention from this new offering. The Motorola...

RadioShack is offering a sweet deal on the Verizon branded Galaxy S5. The smartphone is selling for just $79.99, which is if you’re willing to sign a two year agreement with the carrier. This is quite a discount on the usual pricing of $200, so you might want to hurry if you’re interested in the handset. There’s no word on how long the deal will last, but it is clear that RadioShack is looking to move large volumes of the Galaxy S5 with this new promotion. It’s obvious that the launch of the LG G3 has simmered...

All the major carriers of the U.S. have been rushing to get their VoLTE networks up and running. T-Mobile has already begun the rollout in some regions and Verizon too has now announced that it will switch on the VoLTE networks for its customers in the coming weeks, while no specific date was provided. “Coming weeks” is a very vague timeline and could mean anytime between September to late October, so don’t hold your breath. But it’s going to be well worth the wait for the customers as it will finally allow...

Thanks to what is considered a retirement gift from Evleaks, we have now managed to ascertain that the Verizon branded Moto X+1 will pack the unpopular Verizon Messages bloatware app. This is no surprise given the carrier’s history with pushing many of its own apps on smartphones over the years. Fortunately, it is said that the app will be removable by the user, so customers will not have to bear with it on their app drawer if they don’t want it there. In the past, we’ve seen that Verizon apps cannot be removed without...

Only a few days after Sprint announced its revised family plans, T-Mobile has launched something of its own in a bid to take down the competition. The carrier is offering free LTE data for over an year to customers who switch over to T-Mobile from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon. Existing customers will have to add a lifeline to their account and both customers will get these data benefits. For those who are already on the unlimited data plans, the carrier will offer a credit of $10 on the monthly bill for an year. You can find the complete...

The Samsung Galaxy S4 might be well over a year old, but it’s still a very capable handset and still under the company’s update cycle. A new deal over at eBay is now offering the smartphone for just $359.95, a sizable discount on the standard asking price of $499.99. The seller is also offering free shipping, which is a bonus for an already fantastic deal. It is important to note that this here is a brand new unit of the smartphone and not a refurbished model, so it’s coming straight from the carrier. So if you haven’t...

Verizon was rumored to be launching a rival to the Google Play Store in order to offer a decent alternative for apps on Android devices. And just as we hear about those plans fizzling out, a new report coming from The Information suggests that the carrier is secretly building a coalition with other major carriers of the U.S. to bring this idea to fruition. Obviously, the carrier can have a bigger impact by getting other carriers on board, rather than developing this app hub on its own. It’s an early report so we don’t have...
