The LG G6 was announced around three weeks ago, but as is typical with phone launches, we haven't heard much regarding availability aside from acknowledgement from all four major operators that they will be carrying the phone. Several carriers have now revealed details on their G6's pricing and availability. We'll continue to update this list as more info comes out.
Technology leaks aren't uncommon in the first place, but pre-launch pictures and information regarding Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 plus in particular have been hugely abundant. We've seen press shots, we've seen livepictures and videos; hell, we've even seen leaked documents from other devices confirming some highly-anticipated features. Now, serial leaker @evleaks has spilled some more pictures of the S8 lineup, as well as some pricing details.
Well, it's official - Verizon is the only carrier in the United States that will be carrying the Pixel phones. If the rumors from two months ago didn't convince you, the leak from late last night surely did. Verizon will also give free Daydream View VR headsets to Pixel buyers.
Evernote has announced several changes to its plan structure today that will most likely upset many long-time users. The cost of Plus and Premium plans will be going up, and the free Basic plan is getting much less useful with active device limits. When there are so many other options for note taking apps, this is going to be a hard sell.
Today is Nexus day, and there isn't long to go before Google starts providing the details itself. But hey, you're curious. You're tired of waiting. Well, the leaks are still coming. A full Nexus 6P press release has hit the web, and it shows additional pricing information that we haven't yet seen.
Amazon doesn't believe in limits, not anymore—not when it comes to storage space. The company has stripped Cloud Drive of its storage limitations. Now you can use the service to store as many files as you want for $59.99 a year.
To put this into perspective, Dropbox Pro charges $9.99 a month (or $99.99 a year) for 1TB of storage. To go unlimited, you need a business account. Google Drive is willing to go up to 30TB for general consumers, but it will cost you $299.99 a month. Microsoft hands out unlimited storage space, but only as part of an Office 365 subscription.
Bad news, Europe. Global economic forces, combined with the uncertainty over planned quantitative easing have reduced the value of the Euro, resulting in lower buying power for European consumers. Oh, and a smartphone maker is raising its prices. Outrageous! OnePlus has announced an impending price increase for the One in Europe to compensate for the lower value of the currency, but you've got until March 25th to get the current price.
How much will Huawei's slick new Android Wear device cost? That seems to be the major decision factor for a lot of Android Police readers, impressive looks and features aside. When Huawei announced its round Wear watch at MWC, it unaccountably forgot to mention the price, only saying that it would be available in "more than 20 countries" whenever it launches. A week later we've got a slightly better idea of what it will cost, at least in Europe: somewhere around the €349 mark.
The current era may be captured by smartphones, but the previous one was caught on film by Polaroid. The company's cameras printed out photos just after they were captured, with photographers shaking the results to help them dry (a gesture Polaroid says can actually damage the picture these days).
A poorly-named successor aimed at hip, young smartphone users—the Socialmatic—has been in development to introduce this functionality to a new generation. Polaroid announced the Android-powered camera at last year's CES. This year it will soon be available from Polaroid (eventually), Amazon (January 15th) and Photojojo (end of this month) for $299.99. Polaroid sent out a press release today saying the product is now shipping, but none of the sites above have been updated to match this information.
We've known since late May that the LG G3 was on its way to Sprint, it's just been a matter of finding out when and for how much. Well, the deets are in. The G3 will be available for pre-order starting July 11th, with the actual purchase date being the 18th. Sprint customers can get the phone for 24 monthly payments of $25, which totals up to an even $600.
Those who hop on the deal using Sprint Easy Pay before July 24th and register by August 7th may be eligible to get $150 back in the form of a rewards card.
