Now that the Nexus 6 is official and all details are known, you probably want to know when and where you can get one, right? For the first time in the history of a Nexus device, the phone should be easy to get at every major carrier, assuming you either want to sign a contract or pay a pretty hefty full retail price. According to Google, AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular will all carry the device, but you you will be able to get it through Google Play and Motorola’s store as well. (more…)
Google just made the Nexus 6 official, and we thought it was only proper to give it an entire post just for itself. As was reported numerous times, the device is a massive whale, with a 6-inch display and is made by Motorola. It looks exactly like the renders we created for you a few weeks ago. (more…)
The DROID TURBO will officially be unveiled on October 28 by Motorola and Verizon. We know that because that’s what Verizon has told us through their DroidDoes.com site. We know what the phone looks like, thanks to an image (accidentally?) posted through @DroidLanding that was quickly deleted. We were pretty sure we also knew most of the specs after seeing the user manual for the device surface at the end of last week, along with a tip about the battery size. We know a lot about the DROID TURBO already. Well, we are hear to tell you the rest.
On October 16, Verizon has a few changes to introduce to its Edge monthly device payment plan and a couple for its MORE Everything plans. According to multiple sources, we are looking at a bump from 20 to 24 monthly payments on Edge, a higher percentage of the device needing pay-off before an upgrade can occur, and bigger per line discounts if on Edge. Verizon is also adjusting its single line plans, moving them back to their original $60 and $75 price points.
Below are the details. (more…)
The DROID TURBO has a launch date – October 28. According to Verizon’s Droid Does website that just went live with a new countdown, we have 14 days and 9 hours or so before “all will be revealed.” If you need help with the math, that actually puts us at 12:00PM Eastern October 28, or 9:00AM Pacific. You have two weeks of waiting left. (more…)
A new update for the Samsung Galaxy S4 on Verizon has been approved for rollout as build VRUFNG6. The update includes Samsung’s Knox 2.0 for enterprise, Kids Mode controls, a renaming of Isis Mobile wallet to Softcard, and a bunch of bug fixes like better connectivity with Bluetooth. And yep, that’s pretty much it.
We haven’t heard from any readers yet who have received the update, so the rollout may be slow. Well, either that or no one is excited enough to tip us off to it.
To check for the update, head into Settings>About phone>Software updates>Check for updates. (more…)
If you own an LG G3 – we are talking any variant – and are into custom recoveries, ROMs, that sort of thing, then you should probably have already installed Bump. Created by Team Codefire, Bump allows you to boot into a full TWRP custom recovery and flash ROMs as you please, sort of like if you had a full bootloader unlock. As I just mentioned, this should work with all carrier variants (including Verizon’s), you just need to be rooted first (and work through a little adb with a recovery.img). (more…)
