The LG G2 on Verizon is receiving an update today to software version VS98027A. The update, as far as we can tell, is nothing but a bug fixer.
Verizon uploaded new support documents that include this new software version, but the changelog appears to be identical to the changelog that came back in September when the phone was prepped for VoLTE. That software update was VS98025B. (more…)
Verizon officially announced the availability of Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge early this morning. The Note Edge on Big Red is priced at $399 on-contract, $799 without contract. (more…)
Thanks to an ANTuTu benchmark (assuming it is real) of an unreleased HTC phone that was posted by @upleaks, we now know that HTC’s next flagship phone, currently codenamed as “hima,” is headed to Verizon under the model number HTC6535LVW.

The DROID Turbo, which is easily one of the better phones of 2014, has been slashed to just $1 at Best Buy with a new 2-year contract. To sweeten the deal, Best Buy will also toss in a $150 gift card if you are a new Verizon customer and buy this phone.

Verizon is currently hosting a deal for 50% off of their best Android phones. Of course, the 50% is only off of the on-contract price, but still, the deal includes all phones over $199 on-contract. The devices to consider are the Galaxy Note 4 ($149), Xperia Z3v ($99), and DROID Turbo ($99). Actually, those might be their only Android phones that qualify, all of which we are big fans.
If you haven’t yet, be sure to read our Galaxy Note 4 review, DROID Turbo review, and Xperia Z3v review.
Verizon is also doing free overnight shipping, so if you get orders in by 4PM on December 23, they should arrive by X-mas.
