Wednesday, February 14th, 2018

Soon after Android 8.0 Oreo was released, HTC promised the update would come to its 2016 flagship, the HTC 10. Oreo for the unlocked model finally arrived earlier this month, but started causing issues for owners, and it was later pulled and replaced with a new build. The Sprint carrier model is supposedly next to get the update, but no one actually has it.

Sprint plans to begin 5G rollout in first half of 2019 with higher unlimited plan prices

Friday, February 2nd, 2018

The 4G era has not been kind to Sprint. It went from a strong number three in the US wireless market to a distant fourth place behind T-Mobile. The company hopes that the move to 5G will help it regain market share and compete on network quality. CEO Marcelo Claure now says the carrier will begin its 5G rollout in the first half of 2019, putting it ahead of the other national carriers.

Latest OpenSignal State of the Mobile Networks report shows T-Mobile still on top, Verizon and AT&T recovering

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

OpenSignal's bi-yearly carrier report for the US was just released, and T-Mobile's rampage from last year seems to be continuing. Although both Verizon and AT&T are seeing some recovery in network speed after the reintroduction of their unlimited plans last year, T-Mobile has again topped nearly every category in OpenSignal's testing. Sprint, though still in 4th overall, is also making great strides in both speed and availability.

According to OpenSignal, T-Mobile's average LTE download speed has hit 19.42Mbps, which is a significant improvement of 10% over the last six months.

T-Mobile tops JD Power wireless customer care rankings, Sprint a distant fourth place

Friday, January 19th, 2018

T-Mobile has un-carried itself back to the top of J.D. Power's customers care rankings for full-service wireless carriers. The latest survey, which evaluates consumers' satisfaction with their carriers' customer service, shows Verizon and AT&T taking spots two and three respectively, and Sprint...well, someone needs to do something about Sprint.

J.D. Power surveyed 15,668 wireless customers who had contacted their carriers' customer service through various channels (such as phone support, online chat, forums, and so on) within the past three months.

The US smartphone market is devolving into a Samsung and Apple market – and that’s bad for Android

Friday, January 12th, 2018

If you live in the United States and walk into a Verizon store, you have essentially four options when it comes to choosing a premium smartphone brand: Apple, Samsung, LG, and Google. Yesterday, we learned that continuing to expect LG will be one of these options probably isn't the best bet.

While there may yet be a premium LG phone that launches on Verizon, the Korean conglomerate looks poised to join Motorola as one of Verizon's when-it's-convenient handset partners, and is quite possibly on its way to the Verizon graveyard with the likes of HTC, Sony, and BlackBerry.

Monday, November 20th, 2017

Samsung's three flagship phones, the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note8, are fantastic phones.

[Deal Alert] Sprint LG G6 is just $120 ($360 off) over 24 months at Best Buy

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

For a 2017 flagship, the LG G6 has been getting incredibly cheap. They can routinely be found for less than $300 in the used market, and around $450 brand new. But for the impending Black Friday weekend, Sprint is offering the G6 at just $4.99/month over 24 months with monthly installments, which adds up to just $120 in total.

The G6 is no slowpoke. It sports a 5.7" 1440p LCD display in an 18:9 aspect ratio, a Snapdragon 821, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage with microSD expansion, dual 13MP cameras, a 5MP front-facing camera, and a 3300mAh battery.

Sprint Galaxy Note8 gets update with Calling PLUS, October security patches, and more

Friday, November 17th, 2017

Calling PLUS is still relatively new for Sprint devices, with only a handful of devices currently supporting it. But with its latest update, the Sprint Galaxy Note8 has joined the Calling PLUS ranks, following the LG G6 and Galaxy S8/S8+. Also included are October security patches and a couple of other small fixes/upgrades.

The official changelog is rather sparse. It merely says: "Includes the latest Google security patches, adds Calling Plus, and includes RSSI updates." The update prompt on the phone itself, however, goes into a lot more detail, and thanks to XDA user Bachatu, we've got a screenshot.

Sprint’s unlimited plan now includes Hulu

Thursday, November 16th, 2017

Instead of reducing prices, carriers have decided that bundling streaming services is the best way to sell unlimited data plans. T-Mobile recently started offering free Netflix access to ONE customers with two or more lines, and now Sprint has followed suit by adding Hulu access to its unlimited plan.

Starting November 17, Sprint Unlimited customers can sign up for free access to Hulu from sprint.com/hulu. The main catch is that Sprint will only cover the cost of the $7.99/month 'Limited Commercials' tier.

Verizon Galaxy J3 and Sprint Galaxy J7 Perx get updated to Android Nougat

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

Forget that rounded black biscuit sandwich filled with cream and let's talk about the chewy sweet made of egg whites and nuts instead. (Said no one, ever.) But seriously, let's just pretend Oreo doesn't exist and focus on Nougat. It was a great Android OS with multi-window, bundled notifications, quick replies, and plenty of other great improvements.

Now you'll be able to enjoy those same features if you own a Galaxy J3 on Verizon or a Galaxy J7 Perx on Sprint.
