Minima Pro Live Wallpaper, a live wallpaper app that is without a doubt our favorite of the last year (it made our top apps of 2014 list), is on sale right now for just a $0.99. You should probably buy it. Trust me, if you like Material Design-inspired wallpapers, this is an app that won’t disappoint.
The app offers up 70 “hand-crafted” themes to get you started, options for building your own themes, more settings to customize than you can keep track of, motion as you scroll or tilt your phone, and a “Randomize” button that does all of the work for you. To see it in action, be sure to watch our video below. (more…)

Drop tests are dumb. Really dumb. Unless you are a device protection/insurance company who is offering replacement services or you make screen protectors, you shouldn’t be dropping phones on the ground for pageviews or YouTube subs. You look like a fool. Stop doing it.
With that said, this video is great. I have no idea who this person is, but they are throwing a Galaxy S6 Edge as hard as they can on the ground to see if the screen can break. It doesn’t appear that they are succeeding, which is kind of impressive. While there is nothing scientific about this, it might show some of the durability included in Samsung’s new curved phone. Or, it could just be a cool video of someone going H.A.M. on a brand new $900 phone. (more…)

The LG G2 on Verizon is receiving an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop beginning today. I said “G2″ not “G3.” That was on purpose, because this really is the G2 we are talking about and not the much-newer, less glossy, G3. The update is a big one that is talked about at length in a 6-page document posted by Verizon. We included all six pages below to quench your curiosity. (more…)
This morning, T-Mobile announced that it has taken its Uncarrier approach to coverage maps. What does that mean? Well, they are ditching the “predictive coverage estimations” that other carriers use to show network availability and are instead using crowdsourced, customer-verified network connections to show how far their network reaches.

Receive your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge from T-Mobile already? Expect a software update almost immediately. According to T-Mobile support, a day 1 update is supposed to be ready for each, an update that wipes out some bugs and brings some stability to this year’s flagship line from the Korean manufacturer.

T-Mobile told us that while the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge launch is officially scheduled for April 10, you would more than likely get your phone well before that date if you pre-order through them. They weren’t lying. Many of our readers who pre-ordered on Friday when the links went live and chose overnight shipping, have their devices already. That’s right, T-Mobile pushed them out so fast they were delivered on Saturday. Others are shipping as well and should have them today or tomorrow. Again, April 10 is the official launch day, yet here we are on March 30 with the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge in the hands of customers. How cool is that? (more…)
