We’re one week from Mobile World Congress and the unveiling of major 2017 smartphones and gadgets from companies like LG, Huawei, and Motorola. We’re expecting the G6 and its rounded display corners, the P10 and pee green, the Moto G5 that we know everything about, and a Blackberry device with a keyboard that will only excite…honestly, I don’t know who. It’s going to be a busy few days, but first, you need to catch up on the week we just finished.
Over the past few days, we saw the return of unlimited data to all of the major US carriers and provided you with a big comparison chart of each plan. We also unboxed the new LG smartwatches, ordered things through Google Home, and said goodbye to the ZTE Hawkeye, a phone we never knew.
Plans of Honor, Huawei’s global e-brand, are making the rounds ahead of this month’s MWC in Barcelona. According a report from Russia, China’s Honor V9 will be branded as the Honor 8 Pro in markets like the US, bringing a flagship-worthy set of specifications for what should be an affordable price.

LG is days away from unveiling the G6, their first 2017 flagship phone. However, if you aren’t liking what you are seeing there from leaks and would rather jump into the LG V20, a feature-packed phone for audiophiles, creatives, and the ultimate power user, AT&T has a 50% off deal going at the moment you might want to check out.
The deal comes via bill credits, plus you have to sign-up for either AT&T Next or AT&T Next Every Year, their two device payment plans. Depending on the plan you sign-up for determines the bill credit you get back. If you go AT&T Next, the monthly payment is $27.67 minus the $13.84 bill credit for 30 months. If you go AT&T Next Every Year, the monthly payment is $34.59 minus the $17.30 bill credit for 24 months.
The deal is a limited time offer.
