T-Mobile to Ship Marshmallow Update to LG V10 Next Week

According to T-Mobile’s Des Smith, owners of the LG V10 should see their Marshmallow update begin to rollout next week. To compare, Verizon sent out Marshmallow for the V10 back in March, and AT&T still has yet to release any intel regarding an update.

The V10 was released in October, and since then, owners have had to endure Lollipop. With the update to Android 6.0+, users will benefit from comprehensive app permissions, Google’s Now on Tap, Doze for improved battery life, more control over notifications, as well as plenty of bug fixes.  (more…)

T-Mobile is First US Carrier to Deploy Enhanced Voice Services

Announced today, T-Mobile is the first US carrier to deploy Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) across its network, bringing a much improved voice experience to all of the network’s users (with supported devices). As an added bonus, for those on T-Mobile who tend to call friends and family who are not on T-Mobile, the patent-pending deployment of EVS benefits customers even if the person on the other end of the line does not have an EVS-capable device. This means that regardless of who you call, as long as you have a EVS compatible smartphone on T-Mobile, your calls should sound better than crystal clear.  (more…)

T-Mobile Adds More Services to Music Freedom and Binge On Like Amazon Music and Video, ESPN Radio

T-Mobile announced new additions to its Music Freedom and Binge On services today, bringing the combined list to over 100 services. They also spent another press release telling us how much people watch and listen to videos and music now that they have Binge On and Music Freedom, because after the firestorm of insults that came out of their CEO’s mouth at the end of 2015 when Google and the EFF questioned each, they are still trying to justify to the world that you should not be questioning such success.  (more…)

LG G5 Unboxing!

So, we have another LG G5 in house. Excited? Confused? I say “another,” because we have had a pink, non-retail unit around these parts for a good couple of weeks now that we were really only able to toy and tease our inner tester-selves with. But with this new arrival, we have a retail unit to finally do some dirty work to. That’s slick talk for, “We can finally test things!” You know, like the camera, battery life, performance, etc. That’s pretty exciting.  (more…)
