Best 4G LTE-capable Android tablets available today stateside

If you’ve been following our website lately, chances are you’ve already purchased a tab… or ten. You’re only human after all, and probably couldn’t resist the temptation of a stellar bargain, the best 7 inch+ gamers around, the endurance champions or ultra-high-res media streamers. But there’s one market segment we haven’t tackled in a while.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ vs Galaxy S6 vs S6 Edge – specs comparison

Originally, we intended to take things very gradually when explaining Samsung’s new high-end smartphone roster, first spelling out the differences between the just-announced Galaxy Note 5 and S6 Edge+, then pitting the latter against the “standard” S6 and S6 Edge, and finally comparing and contrasting the Note 5 and its faux leather-clad predecessor. But we

LG G4 availability and pricing roundup: Amazon, Best Buy and all the carriers

Oh, how rumors can distort the truth sometimes. Remember what “credible” insiders said about LG G4’s prospective valuation on the eve of the superb smartphone’s announcement? Shame on us for believing for a second Korea’s first manufacturer runner-up would ever think of topping Samsung’s prices. Still, nobody could have predicted LG’s extreme generosity, as the

HTC One M9 – Complete US availability and pricing guide

It all looks like a no-brainer. Essentially each and every Android power user in the market for a new “handheld PC” seems to be after Samsung’s Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge. The LG G3 is dated, although not by much, the G Flex 2 continues to keep an inexplicably low profile, while Sony’s Xperia Z3

Best low-cost 4G LTE Android smartphones available stateside

With back to school season behind us and Black Friday and Cyber Monday a little ways down the road, this may feel like hardly the best time to make a new Android purchase. Yet low-cost gear tends to be fairly attractive all year round in this day and age, and there’s something about “off-season” buying

Verizon XLTE Revealed By Evleaks

If you get left behind when other carriers improve their networks, the company will suffer. Obviously with AT&T introducing VoLTE and HD Voice yesterday, Verizon wants to combat it. It's about to get fast up in here… — @evleaks (@evleaks) May 16, 2014 Evleaks has now shown us what Verizon is internally doing. Apparently “XLTE” will

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs HTC One M8 – price comparison (US, Canada, UK)

Equally as speedy, pretty much even in the build quality department and each featuring top-shelf audio, imaging, battery or software add-ons such as BoomSound, Dual Camera, Ultra Power Saving Mode or Air gestures, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 and HTC’s One M8 are nearly impossible to separate on paper. Most reviewers say it’s incredibly hard to choose

Verizon To Launch “More Everything” Plans Tomorrow

It looks like Verizon is finally starting to follow T-Mobile’s lead with cheaper plans. According to a tipster who talked to Android Police, these plans should be live starting tomorrow. All the data caps ranging from what are currently 500 MB to 2 GB are getting discounted and upgraded. Here are the new caps: 500

T-Mobile Broadening Switching Program

Looks like T-Mobile wants even more people to be free of contracts. After announcing and launching their “We’ll Pay Your ETF” trade-in program for AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint, T-Mobile is already looking to add more carriers for eligibility in the program. T-Mobile’s marketing chief Mike Sievert said that so far, there have been more than 80,000


Galaxy Note 3 costs $699 off contract on Verizon Wireless

AT&T and T-Mobile have both announced price plans for the Galaxy Note 3, with AT&T offering the phablet out to buyers for $299 on a two year contract and T-Mobile offering it for $100 cheaper. Verizon Wireless is set to be the next US carrier to make an announcement, followed by Sprint. According to a

LG G2 to hit Germany and US sometime in September

It seems like a while since LG announced the LG G2 and yet we still don’t see it on any markets. The company is set to launch the new flagship device on 130 different carriers worldwide, but it may start with Germany and the US. In the US, the LG G2 will come on all
