LG G3 Headed to Sprint Seen in UAProf, Sports 5.5″ UHD Display and 3GB of RAM

Thanks to a UA Profile (UAProf) taken from Sprint’s own servers, it appears that the LG G3, the OEM’s upcoming flagship device, has had its specs outed just a tad early. As we can see from the huge amount of text, the device’s specs are pretty much all known, including its display size, processor, amount of RAM, rear-facing camera resolution, and more.  (more…)

Where to Buy the Samsung Galaxy S5

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is now available across the nation, with all major carriers participating in the April 11 global launch. Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile should all have the device in store, but if not, are guaranteed to have it available online. Some are running special deals, like Verizon’s BOGO (buy one, get one free) special or AT&T’s $50 discount off of Gear 2 and Gear 2 Neo devices should you pick up the GS5.

We’ve linked directly to all of the major carrier stores below, along with the current offers from Best Buy and Amazon. You shouldn’t have any trouble finding a spot to pick up Samsung’s 2014 flagship phone.  (more…)

Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint Kill Off Galaxy S5 Download Booster Feature

Download Booster on the Galaxy S5 from Samsung was one of the cooler, flagship features introduced on the device. The feature allows users to simultaneously utilize the 4G LTE and WiFi connectivity on the device when downloading files, cutting download times significantly, as advertised on the official Galaxy S5 page from Samsung.

Unfortunately, anyone buying the device on AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint won’t find it anywhere on their phones. In an interesting move by these carriers, they have opted to remove the feature, possibly trying to help users save on their capped data plans.  (more…)

Reminder: HTC One (M8) In-store Available Expands Beyond Verizon Today

Verizon’s exclusive hold on in-store availability of the HTC One (M8) comes to an end today, the day before Samsung’s Galaxy S5 hits retail outlets. That means you should be able to walk into an AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint store and get your paws on smartphone luxury, as we like to call it. It may be too tall for our liking, but that doesn’t mean this isn’t a finely crafted device with a build quality unlike any other.

Starting at $199 on-contract (or $599 full retail at some locations), the HTC One (M8) is now widely available. AT&T and Sprint should have it today, with T-Mobile in-store availability happening tomorrow.

If you haven’t yet, be sure to read our HTC One (M8) review.

Sprint HTC One (M8) Receives Update Enabling Extreme Power Saving Mode

If you have a HTC One (M8) on a US carrier, you may have noticed that one of the phone’s advertised features is not present on your device. Extreme Power Saving Mode was touted by HTC as a way to preserve the last 5% of your battery for up to 15 hours by disabling many features, but it curiously was not available on US variants of the device. Sprint is the first carrier to remedy this, bumping their version of the One (M8) up to version number 1.54.651.8. (more…)
