A week ago, we told you to expect a sweet little bundle of goodies should you decide to buy an LG G4. That bundle, according to our exclusive report, would include a free 32GB microSD card, extra 3,000mAh battery, and battery charging cradle. This morning, Sprint confirmed the bundle, while also announcing that their variant of the G4 would be available June 5. (more…)
At the end of our HTC One M9 review, we told you to skip the phone and instead opt for last year’s HTC One M8 should you really love the all-metal design and style of HTC’s products. The One M8 is a better phone. It looks better. It has a better camera, even if it is a bit of a gimmick. It has a better display. It’s battery life is somehow, confusingly better. And best of all, it’s waaaaaaay cheaper.
Take today’s deal for example, where you can buy a brand new HTC One M8 for AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint at just $299 through Best Buy. That’s $299 for a phone at full retail, without a contract or payment plan. You pay $299 and then walk away with a phone that you own.
The deal includes “limited quantities” and is only available today, so be quick if interested.
According to Sprint support, the Nexus 5 is set to receive an update this week to Android 5.1.1 build LMY48B (Sprint says it was supposed to start May 11). The update is listed as being nothing more than the update to 5.1.1 with included “security enhancements.” Tough to say what those security enhancements are, but in general, the update is expected to be quite minor.

For anyone picking up a new smartphone or updating an existing line through Sprint, you can grab half-off deals for select data plans on tablet devices. Specifically, Sprint is offering the deal for its 100MB-1GB plans, now priced at $5 a month for 100MB and $7.50 a month for 1GB of high-speed data over six months. (more…)
According to LG, the new G4 will be available at all of the big US carriers, including AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, and US Cellular.
Pricing has not yet been announced. Availability information will be left up to carriers to announce, but it’s looking like June is a likely launch for the US.
LG is releasing the G4 in Korea on April 29. (more…)
