Samsung will announce the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ on March 29 at events in NYC and London. When the phones will hit stores is now anyone’s guess, though, but current rumors point to anywhere from April 21 to the week following. As we get there, in order for the phone to go up for order, we need to see some things happen, namely a stop off at places like the FCC. For those keeping track of such procedures, we are happy to report that both phones did just that this evening. (more…)
For some reason (and we’re not about to complain), T-Mobile is hosting a mega-phone sale today that includes most Android devices, even of the flagship variety. We’re talking hundreds of dollars off the Samsung Galaxy S7 ($313 off) or Galaxy S7 Edge ($419 off) or LG V20 ($409 off). In fact, you can have any of those phones for just $360 total, or $15 per month for 24 months. (more…)
T-Mobile issued a sweet treat to owners of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge this morning in the form of an update to Android Nougat. The update may have actually begun rolling out last night to those participating in the Nougat beta, but it now seems to be rolling out to non-beta testers.
The update arrives as software build UVU4BQB1 and weighs in at a cool 1.5GB. If you are wanting to download this bad boy right away, make sure you have plenty of battery juice. (more…)
So it’s 2017 and unlimited data is officially back at all of the major US carriers. (Don’t even try to tell me that you saw this coming.) It seemed like just days ago we were paying a hundred dollars for 2GB and 4GB of data and having our grandfathered unlimited data plans ripped from our cold, crusty, fingers with the shadiest of moves. But hey, we’re not about to complain that we can all get back on unlimited data for some decent prices. (more…)
In reaction to T-Mobile’s reaction to Verizon’s reaction to the unlimited craze that has once again swept the wireless industry in the US, Sprint has another new unlimited plan to share with you today. This one is dubbed “Best Unlimited HD Plan Ever” and includes the same style of unlimited plan that Verizon introduced on Monday, which T-Mobile already had to match. It includes HD streaming and tethering without the extra up-charge. (more…)
Yesterday, T-Mobile gave in and tweaked some parts of its T-Mobile ONE plan to better match the new unlimited plan that Verizon introduced that lacked some of the same annoying nuances. That means T-Mobile will no longer have customers pay extra for HD video streams or high-speed tethering (to a certain extent). But even with those changes, one little issue still remained – T-Mobile was going to continue to require you to toggle HD video streams on each day through the T-Mobile app rather than just give you high-quality streaming without the extra step.
Today, the company has apparently caved in on this annoyance as well, according to The Verge. (more…)
