T-Mobile leaks its own upcoming REVVL T1 budget smartphone, sports 5.5" display and (potentially) Android 7.1 Nougat

A little under three months ago, our friends over at Android Authority posted about T-Mobile's upcoming REVVL line of phones, starting with the T1. Since then, news on the phone has remained completely silent. However, T-Mobile has done us all a favor and leaked its own phone via its support pages, giving us a ton of information.

Cheap phones are becoming good, and good phones are becoming cheap. Devices like the Moto G5 Plus are proving that you don't need to spend hundreds of dollars to have a great phone, and ZTE's new Blade Spark seems to be a great entry in the budget phone category.

LG X Venture review: A very good mid-range phone that can take a beating

The budget phone space is incredibly competitive right now. The Moto G5 Plus is still king in this product category, but there are plenty of rivals like Nokia and Acatel selling great devices at inexpensive prices. LG has been making budget phones for a while now, but the X Venture is a bit different. The phone's priorities are durability and battery life, not specifications or performance.

After using the X Venture, I came away impressed. For $329, you get a decently-fast phone that can take a beating, all while lasting around two days on a single charge. It even has a few features you don't often see in phones around this price (at least in the US), like NFC support and a customizable 'QuickButton' that can open any app.

Sony announced the L1 back in March, calling it an affordable device. At the time, Sony kept the lid on pricing and availability, leaving them a mystery. With May almost half over, the Japanese OEM has finally made the budget phone available for sale in the U.S. through Amazon and Best Buy.

Moto C and Moto C Plus leaked, will be Motorola's cheapest Android phones yet

Even though the company has started to slack on fast updates, Motorola is still very good at creating budget devices. The recent Moto G5 and G5 Plus, the latest devices in Motorola's mid-range lineup, have received great reviews. Now it looks like Motorola is getting ready to make its cheapest Android phones yet, the Moto C and Moto C Plus.

You may be wondering, "What about the Moto E? Isn't that supposed to be Motorola's super cheap device?" Well, yes, and the next model may have passed through the FCC recently. But the C and C Plus are even less powerful than the current Moto E. As in, Motorola is scraping the bottom of the barrel here.

Samsung Announces The Galaxy Tab A For The US, Disappointing Specs In A Metal Chassis Starting At $230 May 1st

With the Galaxy Tab A, Samsung is giving its budget tablet line-up a touch of class. This is no dinky Tab 4. This 4:3 slate has a metal chassis! And now it's coming to the US. On May 1st, Americans will be able to buy the device from the likes of Amazon, Best Buy, and HH Gregg.

Unfortunately, the specs remain pretty underwhelming. Sure, we can make do with a 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage. The 5MP camera may not be all that great, but whatever, it's a tablet. But a 1024 by 768 screen resolution...

Mint v4.1 Update Brings Bill Reminders, Navigation Tweaks, And No More Floating Action Button

In an update that we can call minor by Mint's standards, the app's interface and navigation have been refined in addition to receiving a new bill reminder option. This feature is actually quite helpful, since it can be hard to keep a multitude of due dates straight in your head.

Of course, this won't help reduce any confusion between Mint and the recently-rebranded Mint Bills service. To be clear, you will not be paying your bills on Mint; you will just be reminded about them.

Another aspect of this update is the loss of the floating action button. Before taking out your Materially-designed pitchforks, let's recall what it did: create manual transactions.
