The sneaky @evleaks Twitter account is at it again today, posting a leaked press render for Sprint’s upcoming Galaxy Mega 6.3 smartphone from Samsung. Yep, that thing is a beast of a phablet. Sporting a 6.3″ HD display, the Mega 6.3 features a Snapdragon 400 processor, Android 4.2.2, an 8MP back-facing camera, an Adreno 305 GPU, and access to Sprint’s 4G LTE network where you can find it. It isn’t a top tier smartphone, but for anyone looking to have a massive phone with Samsung’s latest proprietary software, then here you go. (more…)
Owners of the Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3, Galaxy Note 2, and the Galaxy S4 Active have been waiting patiently to hear about when these Samsung devices would receive an update to Android 4.3.

If you were looking for a deal on the Motorola’s 2013 flagship, the Moto X, Best Buy has you covered with models from Verizon, AT&T and Sprint all dropping to $99 on contract. This is the 16GB version of the phone, but it’s $100 cheaper than any of the carriers are selling it for at their own stores. It’s also cheaper than Amazon is selling it for, with most of their discounts only hitting the $149 mark. Well, you can jump into a Sprint Moto X for $79.99 if you are a new customer. This Best Buy deal covers both upgrades and new accounts. (more…)
The Galaxy Note 3 from Samsung is available on AT&T and Sprint starting today, but Verizon customers will need to wait just a little bit longer. If you haven’t seen our full review of the Note 3, you can see that here. To sum up the review, the Note 3 is a fantastic phone for anyone looking to upgrade to a larger device.
The phone is a specification powerhouse, sporting a Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP camera that takes amazing shots, a gorgeous 1080p display, and the phone features a ton of useful S-Pen software to go along with the stylus. (more…)
Owners of the HTC One on Sprint should start seeing an update to Android 4.3 today, according to a recent tweet from HTC’s US president.

The Galaxy Note 2 from Samsung was a very successful device, with millions of users falling in love with its massive display, excellent battery life, S Pen integration, and non-stop A+ performance. While the size of the device might scare a few people away, there is now a dedicated group of folks who can’t imagine having anything smaller in their pockets. Back in early September, Samsung introduced the newest member of the Note family, the Galaxy Note 3, giving Note 2 members a reason to upgrade and others a chance to reconsider their fear of tablet-phone hybrid category.
The key things we kept in mind while putting this review together were the subtle differences between this device and the Note 2. The Note 3 features a larger 1080p display, up from the Note 2′s slightly smaller 720p display. The Note 3 also comes packed with a beefy Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB of RAM, up from the Note 2′s 2GB of RAM and less-powerful quad-core processor. Other little things to note are changes to the camera, overall hardware enhancements, and misc. S-Pen software additions.
Without further ado, let’s get to it. This is our Galaxy Note 3 review. (more…)
