If you plan on picking up the LG G3 from any of the carriers in the US, you likely already know that the US carriers are forcing you to buy optional accessories in order to enable wireless charging. The G3 in the UK and other countries includes wireless charging backs out of the box, much like the Verizon G2 did last year, but things have changed this time around in our home country. Carriers are greedy, we get it. They want you to spend more on the phone you just locked into for two years or spent hundreds on to get the most out of it. (more…)
This morning, AT&T announced availability for the Desire 610 from HTC, its mid-range phone for the budget-minded among us.

AT&T announced pricing and availability for the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 this morning, stating that it is now available for purchase through its website. Priced at $269.99 on a two-year agreement, the Galaxy Tab 4 features an 8″ HD display, 3MP rear-facing camera, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 16GB of internal storage, and runs Android 4.2. (more…)
The LG G3 might seem like old news, but for American buyers, it is anything but old. The device is finally available through AT&T and Sprint, with in-store availability on T-Mobile and Verizon beginning next week. We decided to pop over to an AT&T retail store to pick one up, considering that the G3 model we previously had was a Korean unit.
The specifications are the exact same as the Korean model, with the device featuring a glorious 5.5″ QHD display (2560 x 1440), Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, a massive 13MP rear-facing camera with laser auto-focus, Bluetooth 4.0, 3,000mAh battery, and runs Android 4.4.2 out of the box. To sum up the G3 in one word – beast. (more…)
AT&T appears to be running an accessory promo at the moment that will land you 25% off your entire cart if you buy three or more products. Should you couple the newly released LG G Watch (since it is listed as an accessory) with two incredibly cheap, $5 Body Glove products, you could get into the G Watch for as little as $179. The G Watch currently retails for $229, so you are looking at $50 in savings.
We reviewed the G Watch last night and came away from it more looking to the future, than anything. The product isn’t bad, but the platform behind it is so new that it is tough to fully evaluate where it could be in a couple of months. At $179, it may just be worth a look if you love adopting new technology out of the gate. (more…)
AT&T announced this morning that its variant of the LG G3 will be available for pre-order starting tomorrow, July 8, but will then arrive in stores on July 11. The brand new G Watch will also arrive this week, with sales starting tomorrow for $229.
For a limited time, if you buy the G3 with a new 2-year contract, AT&T will slash 50% off the price of select LG accessories like the G Watch, Tone Ultra Bluetooth headset, or G3 Quick Circle case that adds wireless charging. (more…)
Anyway, the upgrade is a big one. We’re looking at a host of new “Kit Kat” features – here’s a list of them. (more…)
The rapidity of Verizon and AT&T’s 4G LTE rollout may have given the impression that the carriers had long ago blanketed the entire US in glorious 4G, but that is not exactly the case. There are still towns out there that need LTE connectivity.
AT&T’s announcement this morning of new 4G markets may placate a few. (more…)
