It’s LG G5 day! I know that doesn’t ring as loudly as it did on Galaxy S7 day, but the G5 is still a big phone, a big deal, and worth your consideration now that it is available for purchase and in stores. We’ve unboxed one, done a non-unboxing and tour, compared it to the S7, and given you our seven favorite features. We have actually talked a lot about it leading up until today.
So if you have seen enough and are ready to purchase the G5 before our review is up (which should arrive next week), you will find all of the links below to your US carrier of choice. (more…)
Sprint is offering an Amazon Prime add-on to any current wireless plan, costing an extra $10.99 a month for those interested. When enabled on a plan, users can immediately gain the benefit of Prime, including free 2-day shipping on many items, access to Prime Video, Prime Music, and much more.
Interestingly, when doing the math, 12 months of this Amazon Prime add-on will cost you $132 annually, while an annual subscription to Amazon Prime directly purchased from Amazon is priced at $99. That’s a little over $30 extra you would be paying. (more…)
Marshmallow updates are flowing today, with Sprint’s Galaxy Note 5, Note 4, and Galaxy S6 Edge+ as the latest to join in on the party.

Tomorrow on March 24, online pre-orders will open up for the LG G5 for Sprint, with official in-store launch set for April 1. For those wanting to perform a pre-order in-person, you can do so at your local retailer beginning March 25.
Sprint is offering a charging accessory bundle and a minimum $150 credit to those who trade-in their current smartphone to upgrade to the G5. Additionally, those who choose to get the phone on a 2-year agreement, the price is set at $149 thanks to a $50 mail-in rebate after your initial purchase. (more…)
B&H Photo is now listing the LG G5 on its website, available for purchase starting April 1. However, this isn’t an ordinary carrier-specific variant. Instead, this unlocked model, according to the product listing, features LTE bands that would make it compatible with all of the top US carriers, including Verizon.
Usually, consumers only see this much carrier compatibility from Nexus or similar devices, so seeing LG embrace this type of functionality, which is known to be extremely beneficial for buyers, is a great thing. (more…)
Pre-orders for the LG G5 are now up on Best Buy, with AT&T and Sprint leading the charge. According to the product listings on Best Buy, the official launch is scheduled for April 1, and for those who do pre-order LG’s latest, you will be getting a few free goodies from Best Buy and LG. (more…)
The Nextbit Robin won’t come to Verizon or Sprint networks, the company announced to backers this morning. The move, which comes after the CDMA variant was already delayed a couple of months, should shock no one. CDMA is hard, it’s expensive, and it’s a pain the ass. In a letter to backers, Nextbit Tom Moss said that the last thing they want to do is “disappoint” supporters, but they need to do that today, unfortunately. (more…)
Own a Moto X Pure Edition? Interested in receiving a new update? Feel free to check for one, as Sprint says that we should be expecting one as soon as today.
Sprint’s support page for the update doesn’t mention what’s included, nor do any of Motorola’s support documents. It could be Android 6.0.1 or it could just be a security patch for March. We don’t really know! Fun, right? (more…)
