[Deal Alert] Brand New AT&T Unlocked LG G Flex 2 Selling On eBay For $290

The LG G Flex 2 isn't as big as its predecessor, which makes it a more practical device to own. Unfortunately, a slightly curved screen isn't really exciting enough for the cost (AT&T wants $709 off contract). But while the G Flex 2 may not be a must-have phone, it's still a nice one. One you can get on eBay for a significantly more reasonable $290. And it will come brand new—not used, nor refurbished.

These are AT&T unlocked units, so you're free to take them over to T-Mobile, but it won't support all the same bands. This model comes in silver.

[Update: Nexus 9] Marshmallow MPA44I Developer Preview OTA Roundup

Nexus OTAs are a pretty big deal, even when they're not official releases. With that said, here are the OTA links that we have for the Android Developer Preview 3, build MPA44I. If the link for your device isn't shown, it means we don't have it yet. We'll update this post as links come in. As with any OTA, these are intended to be flashed in stock recovery on a completely stock, unmodified MPZ79M system. If you have modified the system (root, Xposed, etc.), these won't work. In that case, you should flash the factory images instead.

Google Maps Views Is Officially Dead, And The Migration To Google Maps Has Begun

Google Maps is arguably the best way to get from point A to point B, but it is also one of the best ways to explore places around you. From restaurants, to movie theaters, to state parks, Google Maps has all the information you could ever need. How does Google have information for all of these places? Surely there can't be a couple people sitting in Mountain View documenting every mom and pop shop in the world. In fact, most of the information that appears in Google Maps is there because of contributors. There are Googlers who help verify information, but the contributors are the people who add addresses, hours, reviews, etc.

Project Fi App Update Includes Cross-Device Account Management, Improved Roaming Experience, Visual Tweaks

As a recent (and mostly happy) convert to Google's Project Fi carrier experiment, I've taken up the task of covering Fi news for AP including updates to the Fi app, Google's super simple app for managing your account and keeping tabs on data use.

Today, the app got an update to E.1.3 that brings a few small improvements and one big one - cross-device account management. Basically, Fi users can now install the app on their other devices and manage their accounts from any of them, rather than being stuck to just the Nexus 6.

Pac-Man 256 Is Live In The Play Store With Tons Of Power Ups, Controller Support, And A Not-Terrible IAP Scheme

Just days after releasing a new gameplay teaser, Pac-Man 256 From Hipster Whale has hit the Play Store. This officially licensed take on Pac-Man is part classic arcade eating simulator and part endless runner, plus a delightful homage to the level 256 glitch of the original. It's free-to-play, but the in-app purchases actually seem very fair once you figure it all out.

Lenovo Begins Manufacturing Smartphones In India

Lenovo, one of the world's largest electronics manufacturers and the proud owner of the Motorola brand, is expanding once again. The company announced that it would begin manufacturing both Lenovo and Motorola phones in a new factory in Chennai, India, starting with the low-price Moto E and Lenovo K3 Note models.
