We have already posted up our full review of the LG G3 on AT&T, but since we have now received the same device on Verizon, we wanted to go over the differences between the two devices. While they both feature the same exact hardware, slight changes have been made in the amount of bloatware, plus minor UI tweaks have also been baked in on Big Red’s model.
Apps such as Hotels.com, Slacker Radio, and Clash of Clans have been added in, but the most notable software change is the addition of sliders for volume and brightness in the notification shade. AT&T’s model left these sliders out, which was actually one of our pain points while using the device. Sliders are not a complete deal breaker, but it is nice to have them for the sake of convenience. (more…)
Verizon announced official availability and pricing this morning for the One Remix from HTC, what is essentially known as the One Mini 2 everywhere else. The device goes on sale tomorrow, July 24, priced at $99 on a two-year agreement, as well as through the Verizon Edge program if you have approved credit. (more…)
The wireless carrier raked in the dough this quarter, earning a $4.21 billion Q2 profit on total revenue of $31.48. That represents an improvement of 7.5% and 5.7% year-over-year, respectively, which Verizon noted is the company’s highest growth rate in six quarters. (more…)
The day when Verizon discounts postpaid pricing may also be the day in which pigs take to the skies, but the carrier is apparently willing to offer some form of reward for your … continued devotion. This morning, Big Red announced that Verizon Smart Rewards, a program which rewards subscribers who take advantage of select services with discounts on merchandise, dining, and travel is going nationwide beginning July 24.
A new soak test of a software update for the Moto X on Verizon is about to begin, with invites going out to members of the Motorola Feedback Network moments ago. The invite didn’t specify if it would be an update to Android 4.4.3 or Android 4.4.4. The Verizon DROID line just saw Android 4.4.4 at the beginning of this week, so there is a chance that the Moto X will see it as well.
With today’s launch of Verizon’s ALLSET prepaid plan with 4G LTE, a pretty solid deal on the LG G2 has come along for the ride. Should you decide to join the prepaid world, you can add-on a brand new G2 for $299. That is without a contract, of course.
If you were to buy the same G2 without ALLSET, it would run you $499. At $299, we are talking lower than Nexus 5 levels here, but you are getting a phone that is arguably better. Keep in mind that the G2, even though it is about a year old, is probably the most underrated phone from last year. It has a gorgeous 1080p LCD display, crazy good battery life, an awesome camera, and is pretty hack-able for the most part. (more…)
