Verizon is Pushing a New Lollipop Update to the Galaxy S5 That Hopefully Isn’t Terrible

Back in early February, Verizon pushed out an Android 5.0 Lollipop update to its version of the Galaxy S5. Most people couldn’t believe it, as this was the first S5 variant in the US to see the jump to 5.0, which almost never happens with major updates for Verizon’s line of Android phones. As it turns out, being first wasn’t such a bonus for owners of the phone.  (more…)

LG G2 on Verizon Gets Lollipop Today, Your G3 Still Can’t Have It

The LG G2 on Verizon is receiving an update to Android 5.0 Lollipop beginning today. I said “G2″ not “G3.” That was on purpose, because this really is the G2 we are talking about and not the much-newer, less glossy, G3. The update is a big one that is talked about at length in a 6-page document posted by Verizon. We included all six pages below to quench your curiosity.  (more…)

Looks Like a Few Best Buy Locations are Accepting Galaxy S6 Pre-Orders on Verizon

According to a few tip emails we have received, it appears that a couple Best Buy locations here in the US are accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge on Verizon.

From the information we received, a Best Buy location in Williamsville, NY is accepting VZW pre-orders, but other than that, the tips we received only say which state they are in, which were California and New York. We know, it’s vague. (more…)

Reminder: HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Pre-orders Now Live

It’s pre-order day for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and One M9. Well, at least on carriers not named Verizon. Big Red pre-orders for these phones won’t start up until April 1, so keep that in mind.

Regardless, each of these phones is now purchasable through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. You can also get them from many retail locations, such as Best Buy. And as a bonus, if you order the Galaxy S6 through Best Buy, you get a free wireless charger.  (more…)

Verizon has the Lowest Prices on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

Believe it or not, Verizon has the best full retail (off contract) pricing on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. To see pricing for each carrier, you can check out our pricing guide, but the numbers are substantially lower in all tiers (32GB, 64GB, and 128GB) on Big Red than they are at AT&T and T-Mobile, or even US Cellular. Sprint is hiding their pricing and doing some gimmicky lease program, so we can’t really compare anything there.  (more…)

Verizon HTC One M9 Pre-Orders Start April 1

Hey, Verizon is awake today. Moments ago, they announced that the HTC One M9 will be available for pre-order on April 1, with in-store availability kicking off April 10. If that sounds odd, it’s because everyone else on the planet opens pre-orders tomorrow, March 27. This news shouldn’t shock you, though, as they are doing the same thing with the Galaxy S6.

The device will cost $199 with a new 2-year agreement or $24.99 per month for 24 months on Verizon Edge. Big Red will sell both the Gold on Silver and Metal Gray models with 32GB of storage.  (more…)

Reminder: Verizon’s Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Pre-Orders Don’t Start Tomorrow

Samsung announced this morning that pre-orders for the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge start tomorrow, March 27, at all sorts of carriers. Most carriers then followed up that announcement with a confirmation that they would indeed open pre-orders at their stores and online at varying times on the 27th. Verizon, as you may have noticed, hasn’t said a word today. That’s because they announced a couple of weeks back that their pre-order period would start on April 1(more…)
