You probably won’t believe this the first time you read it, but the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge can now be purchased in the US as unlocked phones. Officially. This isn’t a story about buying an imported version at a discount from who-knows-where. We’re talking about officially supported, unlocked phones made specifically for the US with support on all carriers.

Samsung announced the unlocked versions this morning, saying that they should go on sale later today, June 30.   (more…)

Project Fi added a third network today in US Cellular. That means Project Fi users now have access to three different networks, further enabling the ability of Fi to get you on the best connection at all times.

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.

Where to Buy the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

Still haven’t decided whether or not to pull the trigger on a Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge? Today is the day that you can officially buy them in stores, so you can finally make a decision after your own personal hands-on time. While a number of you pre-ordered because you knew from day 1 that one of these would be your next phone, we know that a number of you have been waiting to get your paws on them in person.

If you need quick links to them, we have those below. For specific pricing and all of the deals that each carrier or retailer is including, you’ll want to check out this post. We’re talking freebies that include the Gear VR, microSD cards, Netflix for a year, and more.  (more…)

LG G5 Availability at US Carriers

On LG G5 Day, it only makes sense that US carriers start weighing in with their plans for the device. For whatever reason, everyone is being quite tip-lipped about a potential launch date, so don’t expect this phone to launch within the next couple of weeks. We wouldn’t be surprised if it didn’t show up until some time in April.

Still, we’ll update this post as we have info from each carrier.  (more…)

LG G4 on US Cellular Getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update

LG, surprisingly, has been one of the quicker OEMs to push out the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to its flagship phone from early 2015. The LG G4 on Sprint saw the update a few weeks ago and now the US Cellular variant is joining it.

While we wish we were sharing this same news on the AT&T and Verizon variants, we’re just not there yet. If you have the US Cellular model, though, you should see the update this week if you haven’t already. A source of ours who tipped us to the update said it was supposed to start yesterday.  (more…)
