Alright T-Mobile users, it's time to get flashing, at least if you own an LG G3 or the 7-inch version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. Team Win has released their custom recovery build for both of the T-Mobile variants of those devices, enabling power users to easily flash modifications and ROMs or backup the existing system. You can grab the T-Mo G3 recovery here, and the Galaxy Tab 4 recovery here

Apparently the various unlocked and carrier models of both devices are just different enough to cause difficulty when flashing a modified recovery or ROM, and in both cases these TWRP builds are the first official ones for their respective devices.

Update #2: T-Mobile has started updating support pages with a clarification on those Wi-Fi calling enhancements. The phones now have support for Gogo inflight texting, a feature the company announced as part of Un-Carrier 7.0.

Update #1: The Galaxy S5 got some love, too.

Google isn't the only company lumping big updates on Wednesday. T-Mobile is sending out Android updates to four, count 'em, four phones on its network.

Update: Various commenters and tipsters tell us that the D855 model isn't working on AT&T's LTE network, despite the technical support for the 700Mhz frequency. It's either a band incompatibility or a software lockout. So AT&T users, skip this deal unless you're OK with no LTE support at all.

LG's G3 is among the best Android phones available at the moment, though whether it stands above the rest is a topic for heated comment section debate.

Earlier this month LG let the G3 Stylus slip out in an ad, though at the time we weren't exactly sure what the device was. Now we know, because LG made it official. Spoiler: it's not as cool as you hoped. I promise.

So the G3 Stylus looks like a G3 with a stylus, and it packs some of the features that makes the G3 cool, but it's not a G3 with a stylus.

Love it or hate it, the LG G3 is one of the top flagship devices of 2014. With a set of specs that will make even the most jaded Nexus warrior a bit jealous, it's no wonder that the handset has gained a few fans. Unfortunately, LG's software customizations still leave a lot to be desired, and many users have turned to rooting their phone to take back some level of control over the experience.

I wrote a review of the G3 just about two months ago, and at the time, I really enjoyed it. While the model I was provided was designed for Korea, it worked on AT&T's LTE network and generally provided a steady wireless experience. I found Wi-Fi connectivity was a bit spotty, though, and there were occasional network hiccups that are to be expected of a piece of hardware not specifically certified for a particular carrier.

One of the easiest and most effective ways to add some flair to your device without any noticeable bulk is with a wrap. The high-quality wraps offered by Slickwraps.com are fantastic examples of how drastically a wrap can alter the look of a device, and we've teamed up with them to offer a pretty incredible prize package for one lucky winner:

  • 1 LG G3 (the winner will select the carrier/region)
  • 1 One-of-a-kind Android Police wrap (I'm jealous of this one – it's sexy)
  • 30 Additional wraps for the LG G3 (that's one per month for longer than a normal contract!)

Let's break down what you're getting here, because there's a lot to consider.

Tucked into the end of an otherwise unremarkable promo video for the G3 Beat is a fleeting glance of a new, unannounced variant of LG's latest flagship device. The phone is unapologetically labeled the G3 Stylus. It looks identical to the G3 save for a slightly larger screen and, well, a stylus. This is the first we've heard of this particular phone, though it's hardly a surprising addition to the lineup.

For the biggest of the big manufacturers, loaning out the name of your flagship model to smaller and cheaper phones is a no-brainer. You get potential customers who want the look and at least some of the features of the newest, coolest device, and you also get to reap the rewards of your brand marketing. So it is with Samsung and HTC's various "Mini" models, and now, LG's G3 Beat. Hey, at least they're not trying to call a 5-inch phone "mini."

The G3 Beat downgrades the best-in-class spec sheet of the full-sized G3 with a 5-inch, 720p LCD screen, a 1.2Ghz Snapdragon 400 processor, a mere 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage with a MicroSD card slot.

Sprint previously said today was the day for LG G3 preorders to start, but checking out the Sprint site seems to show the device ready for purchase right this moment. Sprint's store finder tool even reports it in stock all over the US. Oh, and you can get that snazzy (some might say gaudy) gold version of the G3 exclusively from Sprint.
