The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 will more than likely be introduced in two months at Berlin’s IFA conference. If you don’t care and would rather have last year’s Galaxy Note 4 at a discounted rate, then well, Samsung has a deal for you.

T-Mobile’s new JUMP! On Demand program is all the rage this morning, with smartphone lovers excited over the idea that they could trade in phones for the new hotness up to 3 times per year. But some of you may be wondering which phones are a part of the program and how much they will cost. We have that info for you now to get you ready for June 28, the day this new upgrade program kicks off. (more…)
Samsung probably has a Galaxy Note 5 unveiling lined up for some time in late August-early September, but that doesn’t mean last year’s Galaxy Note 4 isn’t still a heck of a phone (our review). In fact, me, the hater of all oversized phones, loves the Note 4. It’s one of those phones that is designed so well and feels so premium, that you can easily forget that it’s the size of a Smart car. It has an amazing camera, performs with the best of them, lasts well through an entire day on a single charge, and that display…that display.
If you are interested in the Galaxy Note 4, think about cruising over to eBay this morning to check out a deal on an unlocked, manufacturer refurbished model (SM-N910A) that will work on AT&T (T-Mobile for the most part, but is missing 1700 band)). Priced at just $399, you are looking at one of the best prices ever for a Note phone that isn’t really all that old.
The deal has been running for a day and is almost over, so be quick.

On Friday, we told you that T-Mobile had received “technical approval” on the Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 4 and was planning to push the update to users starting today. Sure enough, it’s happening. A couple of our readers, along with many more in various forums throughout this vast Android-filled internet are all receiving the update.
Update: It’s live! Head into Settings>About Phone>Software Updates>Check for Updates to grab it. As a reminder, this is a 2-part update that will take some time to complete. Be sure you have enough battery and time to do it.
Look! A changelog of the Lollipop update for Verizon’s version of the Galaxy Note 4! It’s happening!
According to the date on the document, the update has been approved and should start rolling out to devices as early as today, April 2. The update will arrive in two parts as build VRU1BOAF. However, because we haven’t actually seen the update on a device, we aren’t sure if it’s Android 5.0 or 5.0.1 or 5.0.2. You will have to confirm that for us. (more…)
