If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and void your warranty, you can have Android 5.0 on your Sprint Galaxy S5 right now. An early build of Lollipop for this device has leaked on XDA, and it's flashable with Odin. Expect bugs, but hey, it's Lollipop.

Republic Wireless made news last year when it started selling the Moto X for what was, at the time, a very compelling price. Now the Sprint MVNO has gotten the 2014 Moto X ready for its special hybrid calling service. It's coming December 10th for $399. That's $100 less than the regular off-contract price.

Got some shopping plans this holiday weekend? That might be the time to pull the trigger on a Nexus 6 if you're on Sprint. Some information we've been passed indicates Google is partnering with Sprint to throw in $50 of Play Store credit when you buy a Nexus 6 between Black Friday (11/28) and Cyber Monday (12/1).

Amazon was forced to concede that its much-anticipated Fire Phone was not a big seller when AT&T dropped the price mere weeks after it was released. When the retailer's quarterly results were announced, we learned the scale of the screw up. Now Amazon is washing its hands of the whole mess. It's unloading unsold 32GB Fire Phones unlocked for $199 off-contract. The off-contract price at launch was $650 and AT&T charged $199 with a 2-year agreement.

The Skype app has had its fair share of problems over the years, and today's update fixes one particularly annoying quirk. It's not all about fixing mistakes, though. The update adds some useful new stuff too.

The Time Warner Cable app has been updated with a few bug fixes and whatnot. One notable change is that it actually works on Android 5.0 now. See, before it just didn't run on Lollipop, but the changelog calls it a simple crash fix. Oh, you guys.

Being on the bleeding edge is great and all, but there are drawbacks. For example, many users of Android 5.0 devices are reporting that apps seem to be restarting an awful lot in the background. There are also performance issues that seem to crop up more the longer a device runs without being restarted.

Monument Valley is without a doubt one of the coolest and most innovative games to ever grace an Android device, and now there's an expansion with eight more levels to delight and entertain. The Forgotten Shores update is available in the Play Store after originally debuting in the Amazon Appstore on Friday. It's a $1.99 in-app purchase, but that seems perfectly reasonable.
