Tomorrow, pre-orders go up for the all-new HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6, and Galaxy S6 Edge. There is a lot of hype surrounding each device, so it is only natural that we would want to find out which way you are all leaning.
Pre-orders for each device will take place through numerous carriers and retailers (One M9 details, GS6 and GS6 Edge details), so getting your hands on these phones should not be too difficult. The only question is, which one should you get?
Samsung introduced a revamped TouchWiz experience and hardware design for the Galaxy S6 Edge, while also incorporating glass and metal into the standard Galaxy S6. As for the One M9, HTC stuck to its guns on the overall design, but threw in a 20MP rear-facing camera, updated Sense UI with custom themes, and the device still features HTC’s beloved BoomSound speakers. Needless to say, you can’t really go wrong with any choice.
So, which flagship are you ordering?
Samsung announced this morning that pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge start tomorrow, March 27, at all sorts of carriers. Most carriers then followed up that announcement with a confirmation that they would indeed open pre-orders at their stores and online at varying times on the 27th. Verizon, as you may have noticed, hasn’t said a word today. That’s because they announced a couple of weeks back that their pre-order period would start on April 1. (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…)
You know it has been on your mind since Samsung unveiled them. You know you have been wondering just how much all of those premium materials and next-gen internals were going to cost you. Am I right? T-Mobile has weighed in first this morning with pricing for both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. The prices are about what we thought – they are higher than normal, but not insanely higher than normal. (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…)
John Legere went on Twitter today and announced that anyone who purchases a Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge through T-Mobile will be given a free year of Netflix. That should be helpful if you plan on consuming a ton of House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, and whatever else you might enjoy viewing. (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…)
