Believe it or not, Verizon has the best full retail (off contract) pricing on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. To see pricing for each carrier, you can check out our pricing guide, but the numbers are substantially lower in all tiers (32GB, 64GB, and 128GB) on Big Red than they are at AT&T and T-Mobile, or even US Cellular. Sprint is hiding their pricing and doing some gimmicky lease program, so we can’t really compare anything there. (more…)
Now that we have Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge pricing and availability out of the way, it’s time to focus our attention for a minute on the HTC One M9. Like Samsung’s flagships, the One M9 will go up for pre-order tomorrow, March 27, and arrive at most carriers April 10. Since there is only one model, pricing here is pretty straight forward, with a full retail price sitting right around $650 at most places, but there will also be monthly payment options.
Here we go, again. (more…)
Samsung announced this morning that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge go up for pre-order starting tomorrow, March 27, with nationwide availability opening up on April 10. That doesn’t mean that all carriers will have the device available that day, so we thought we would gather all of the information from individual carriers and slap it for you in a single post. Let’s make this easy – well, as easy as it can be with two phones, three colors, three storage sizes, and who knows how many price points and payment plans.
Here we go. (more…)
Tomorrow should be a fun day – you get to decide if you want to buy one of Samsung’s new devices, the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge, or the HTC One M9. All devices go up for pre-order starting tomorrow, but we’ll save HTC info for another post. Let’s talk now about how you can order one of Samsung’s new flavors. (more…)
AT&T’s Galaxy Note 4 may not be the only Note receiving its update to Android 5.0 Lollipop today. According to a couple of our readers, a 1GB update is also rolling out to the Galaxy Note 3 on AT&T that is more than likely a bump to 5.0.1. The update is crawling at the moment, just like the Note 4’s update, so it could be a minute before we know for sure. What else could it be, though? (more…)
AT&T Galaxy Note 4 owners are being treated to the slowest download in history, this morning, one that may very well be Android 5.0 Lollipop. It’s like the ultimate tease. At least one reader told me that he is over two hours into his download of this 1.1GB file. As you can see, I was momentarily at 0% and am now hovering around 7%. This is going to be a long one.
I can’t get any clear confirmations on if this is actually Android 5.0, since everyone still seems to be downloading. AT&T also hasn’t updated their support page with official word on the update. So, if you have received this and actually updated, let us know! (more…)
The date is March 16, a significant piece of information to note, knowing that AT&T just announced that they will carry the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini on March 20. Again, today is not April 1. You also did not just read “Galaxy S6 Mini” or “Galaxy S6″ or “you won’t believe this because it makes absolutely zero sense, but we are about to carry the mini version of last year’s flagship from Samsung.” (more…)
