Sprint didn’t bother to list out much in their changelog, only that this is 5.1. I would imagine HTC might sneak in some camera improvements and other little tweaks to Sense. If you get the update, be sure to let us know.
Included is an enhanced Folio display while a call is taking place, an updated consistency for displaying contacts and non-contacts in the Dialer app, and an enhanced Advanced Calling feature. That’s it. (more…)
To better fit round smartwatches, LG Chem has introduced hexagonal batteries, granting a larger capacity given their shape. Instead of a little square or rectangular battery inside of your round watch, a battery featuring a roundish shape can fit better inside, delivering more juice to end users. (more…)
A deal running since yesterday over at eBay has the LG G4 priced at just $499. That’s a solid price on a phone that is arguably as good as Samsung’s Galaxy S6 in most categories and may beat it in some (battery life would be an example). Verizon wants $550 for it, while T-Mobile and AT&T each want $600 and $630, respectively.
The phone is brand new, unlocked, and ready for use on your favorite GSM networks. The bands listed show that it should work perfectly on AT&T (or Cricket), but should also work well on T-Mobile. The phone comes with 32GB of storage, plus that lovable microSD card slot for more (You could toss in the 200GB card from Amazon).
At this time, the grey model is sold out, but both white and gold are available. Free standard shipping is also included.
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…)
Every week, at least three or four or twenty people ask us in some way or another, “What phone would you recommend I buy?” In reality, they just want to know what the best Android phone is that they can buy today. I get why we get asked. After all, we handle every new flagship under the sun.
Since there are so many good phones these days, the decision hasn’t become any easier in recent years. Before, though, we use to worry about whether or not a phone could last two years. Now, the criteria is much more specific. People want to know which phone has the best camera or the best battery life or the best display. What’s the storage situation like? Is it made of metal or cheap plastic? How often does it get updated?
Rather than try and answer all of those questions in individual emails, we thought we may as well just put our thoughts out there every so often, so that everyone can see what we think the best Android phone is that you can buy. Don’t worry, though, we’ll keep this simple and to the point. You have other things to do.
Just yesterday, the AT&T LG G4 received an update that automatically installed itself without user permission. As you can imagine, that pissed some people off, especially those who assume the update is nothing more than a root killer. Today, a similar situation appears to be in the works for the T-Mobile variant of the LG G4. Readers of ours, as well as those in various forums, are reporting that a mysterious update is automatically installing and rebooting their phones. Not good. (more…)
