[Deal Alert] Get $350 off Sprint and Verizon Galaxy Note8, S8, and S8+ over 24 months at Best Buy

Monday, November 20th, 2017

Samsung's three flagship phones, the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+, and Galaxy Note8, are fantastic phones. Unfortunately, they're also pricey, with some variants of the Note8 going over the scary thousand-dollar mark with taxes. If you're on Sprint or Verizon and you're in search of a new phone, Best Buy's latest $350 discount (over 24 months) on these devices may just be what you need.

Basically, each of these discounts involves a $14.59 reduction in monthly pricing, which adds up to $350 over 24 months.

[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.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 Active is officially coming to T-Mobile and Sprint

Tuesday, November 7th, 2017

The Galaxy S8 was launched simultaneously on all carriers earlier this year, but AT&T had a few months of exclusivity on the S8 Active. There have been rumors the Active variant would come to other carriers, and now that's official. The Galaxy S8 Active will be on Sprint and T-Mobile later this month.

This device has most of the same features as the regular Galaxy S8, but packs a larger 4,000mAh battery and a more durable frame.

Following end of T-Mobile merger negotiations, SoftBank increases ownership of Sprint

Monday, November 6th, 2017

After the "will they or won't they" mess of negotiations between Deutsche Telekom, the reluctant owner of T-Mobile US, and SoftBank Corp., the owner of Sprint fell apart once again, SoftBank has announced their intent to increase their ownership stake in Sprint. This change would increase SoftBank's control of the US's 4th largest mobile network operator from 80% to 85%.

The 2017 series of negotiations centered around SoftBank selling their stake in Sprint to Deutsche Telekom, which were apparently abandoned on November 5th due to concerns from members of SoftBank's board about ceding control of the company.

T-Mobile and Sprint publicly end merger talks

Saturday, November 4th, 2017

What a roller coaster the past two months have been. T-Mobile and Sprint were first reported to be in merger talks in late August, with an announcement planned for the end of October. Everything seemed to be going well, but Sprint eventually pulled out due to ownership concerns. The combined carrier would have been majority owned by T-Mobile's parent company, which SoftBank and Sprint weren't happy about.

Just two days ago, T-Mobile's board of directors agreed to continue perusing a deal, and gave a counter-offer to Sprint (details are still unknown).

T-Mobile reportedly trying to salvage merger effort, gives counter-offer to Sprint

Friday, November 3rd, 2017

T-Mobile and Sprint were first reported to be in merger talks in late August, with the announcement originally planned for the end of October. Last month, a report from Bloomberg stated that the carriers' parent companies (Deutsche Telekom and SoftBank) were in the final stages of an agreement. But the end of October came and went with no announcement.

The Wall Street Journal and Nikkei reported a few days ago that SoftBank, Sprint's parent company, seemingly pulled out of the agreement over ownership concerns.

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

We first heard about the BLU S1 nearly two months ago, and the leaked specifications were spot-on. Now, the device has officially been announced as BLU's first Sprint-compatible and Sprint-certified device, and although the specs are nothing impressive, it'll cost just $179.99 (or $129.99 if you order very soon).

Processor 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750 octa-core
