AT&T Galaxy Note 4 (Appears to be) Receiving Update to Lollipop! (Updated: It Is)

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…)

Comparison: Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge vs. the Past, an Evolution of Samsung Devices

Over the years, we have continued to add new devices to our specs comparison chart of Samsung’s Galaxy devices. We started with the Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2, because prior to those, Samsung was giving carriers their own custom versions of each and it was impossible to keep track of. But with those, we started seeing carriers adopt a single model, bringing consistency and a brand explosion to the Galaxy line. As you probably guessed, we went ahead and added the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge to the list to show how far Samsung has come over the years.  (more…)

Deal: Just $12.99 for This Quick Charge 2.0 Adapter

Back in January, I expressed my love for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology that allows you to charge your phone at pretty insane speeds when compared to your typical USB charger. The technology has been made famous by Motorola within the last year, thanks to their use of it as a selling feature in the new Moto X, DROID Turbo, and Nexus 6. They are also selling a $35 Turbo Charger that can give your phone hours of use in just a few minutes time. But Quick Charge 2.0 is in more than Motorola devices. In fact, the HTC One (M8) from early last year has it, as does the Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact, and Galaxy Note 4. That’s right, most of the popular phones released within the last year have the technology built in.

Unfortunately, most official OEM Quick Charge 2.0 chargers aren’t cheap, so many of you have avoided buying any. Like I mentioned, Motorola sells their Turbo Charger for a whopping $35, but HTC also has a quick charge adapter that runs $35 too.

If you want a lower cost charger, you currently have to turn to places like Amazon. There are a handful of third party accessory makers now making Quick Charge 2.0 adapters, one of which is Tenergy, who just so happens to be hosting a Lightning deal over at Amazon at the moment. For just $12.99, you can grab yourself a Quick/Turbo charger and realize why I think it’s the future of charging.

As of right now, the deal is 41% claimed, so you may want to hurry.
