This is the first of the many parts of our Sprint Galaxy S2 Problems series as we have received a lot of emails from our readers who happened to own an S2 under the umbrella of Sprint in the United States. By the way, Galaxy S2 is also called Epic 4G Touch when in Sprint and it has different names in other carriers, so don’t be confused. To further avoid the confusion, I will address this device as “Galaxy S2″ in this post. We have already addressed hundreds of problems Galaxy S2 owners reported. Therefore, if you have...

Folks looking to snatch up Google’s flagship tablet from 2013 will be pleased to know that Newegg is selling it for just $129.99. This is nearly $100 off the original asking price, so it’s a pretty good deal on the device. One caveat with the deal however is that it’s manufacturer refurbished, which means that the device has been used before, but has been through the manufacturer and has been restored to its original state. The 2013 Nexus 7 is on the brink of becoming obsolete as Google is about to launch the HTC branded...

A new report has claimed that Cyanogen Inc has flatly declined Google’s offer to acquire the company. This comes even as the Google top brass was personally believed to have approached the team to further discuss terms. It’s unclear as to why Cyanogen said no to this possibly lucrative offer, but our first guess is that they are concerned about their potential future with a company like Google. While it’s completely possible that Cyanogen will be left independent even if the acquisition went through, any fears the team...

Now that the new Moto X has launched on AT&T and Verizon, it’s time for it to spread to the smaller carriers. T-Mobile and Sprint have still passed on the device, but you can now get one from US Cellular if you want to. The Moto X is currently available in one color. The plastic Black Moto X is available now for $99, but the Black Leather and Bamboo models will be available later this month for $150. While it’s a shame to see some carriers pass on this device, it’s great to see it come to others. Are you going to...

HTC appears to be taking selfie oriented smartphones to a whole new level with its upcoming Desire Eye handset. The leaked press materials reveal that the handset is packing a 13-megapixel front facing camera with a dual LED flash. Needless to say, the smartphone also has a 13-megapixel shooter on the back with the same LED flash arrangement. Other specs of the smartphone include a 5.2 inch Full HD display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 SoC, Android 4.4 KitKat with Sense 6 and a 2,400 mAh battery. It’s...

The Kyocera Hydro Vibe smartphone from Sprint has started receiving the Android 4.4 update. The update also brings the WiFi calling feature to the smartphone, so there’s more than just visual changes on board with this update. The smartphone was launched with Android 4.3 back in May, but it’s good to see the manufacturer as well as the carrier rolling out the update now. There’s no word on how big the update file is, but it seems like it’s going to be pretty large considering that the device is switching over...

The 2013 Nexus 7 LTE is now getting the Android 4.4.4 OTA update, just a few days after Google posted the factory image of the update on its servers. The tablet is already running Android 4.4.3, so this is a very minor update as far as changes are concerned. The update patches a few pertinent bugs while bringing some minor performance enhancements as well. Since the update is coming directly from Google, it should begin rolling out immediately. However, if it hasn’t landed on your device yet, make sure you head over to the settings...
