Now that Samsung’s new phones have been in the hands of normal people for more than a few days, we are hearing of a potential auto-rotate issue that is plaguing Galaxy S6 Edge owners on Verizon and Sprint. There may be variants from other carriers experiencing the issue as well, but these are the two we are seeing mentioned more often than any other model.
So what exactly is the issue? (more…)
This morning, Sprint announced a new program called Direct 2 You that places a retail-trained Sprint expert in your home, with your new phone, to make sure America’s grandmother population is taken care of. They could take care of you too. They could take care of anyone really. Well, not in the nursing home capacity, but to help you get a new phone up and running! (more…)
April 10 is here! Did you order your Apple Watch yet? Errr, that’s not what we care about. What is happening today….oh yeah! Star Wars is now available digitally! No…well, that’s awesome news, but that’s not what we care about either at this moment. Ahh yes, it’s Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and HTC One M9 day! Did you get/order yours?
Below, we have links for all and to each carrier, in case you can’t figure out how to use Google Search.
If you need more info, well, we have that too. Our Galaxy S6 Review is out. That’s probably a must read. Our One M9 review will be here next week. We also have who knows how many videos of each phone over at our YouTube channel. Go watch them. Here is a pricing breakdown of the Galaxy S6s. Fun stuff. (more…)
According to Samsung’s firmware website, the Sprint variant of the Galaxy Note 3 is receiving its Lollipop update, labeled as version PVPUEOC5. Inside, Android 5.0 is the OS of choice, not to be mistaken with Android 5.0.2 or Android 5.1. This is apparently pure Android 5.0. (more…)
It’s pre-order day for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and One M9. Well, at least on carriers not named Verizon. Big Red pre-orders for these phones won’t start up until April 1, so keep that in mind.
Regardless, each of these phones is now purchasable through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. You can also get them from many retail locations, such as Best Buy. And as a bonus, if you order the Galaxy S6 through Best Buy, you get a free wireless charger. (more…)
Believe it or not, Verizon has the best full retail (off contract) pricing on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. To see pricing for each carrier, you can check out our pricing guide, but the numbers are substantially lower in all tiers (32GB, 64GB, and 128GB) on Big Red than they are at AT&T and T-Mobile, or even US Cellular. Sprint is hiding their pricing and doing some gimmicky lease program, so we can’t really compare anything there. (more…)
Now that we have Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge pricing and availability out of the way, it’s time to focus our attention for a minute on the HTC One M9. Like Samsung’s flagships, the One M9 will go up for pre-order tomorrow, March 27, and arrive at most carriers April 10. Since there is only one model, pricing here is pretty straight forward, with a full retail price sitting right around $650 at most places, but there will also be monthly payment options.
Here we go, again. (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…)
