[Update: Coming soon] Daydream VR support arrives on the Galaxy S8 and S8+, or so T-Mobile says

Back in May, Google announced that Daydream would be coming to the Galaxy S8 this summer. Well, it's summer, and Daydream support has indeed arrived with the latest T-Mobile update - at least, according to their support page changelogs. Whether or not the Galaxy S8 actually supports Daydream as of right now is another question.

Samsung is blocking Bixby remapping apps for the Galaxy S8 again, starting with the recent T-Mobile update

Ever since the Galaxy S8 came out, Samsung has been trying to push Bixby onto owners. Given how Bixby isn't any more useful than Google Feed or Google Assistant, how the English voice assistant still isn't out, and how the button is unable to be disabled, many have turned to remapping apps. Samsung already attempted to block these apps once, but clever developers found a way around that pretty quickly. Now, starting with yesterday's T-Mobile update, Samsung has blocked Bixby remapping apps yet again.

Latest T-Mobile Galaxy S8 and S8+ update allows nav bar to be hidden, loses black fill option

One of the Galaxy S8's highlights is its extremely long 18.5:9 AMOLED display. It allows for more content while reading, as well as easier multitasking. However, the software keys on the bottom can cannibalize a bit of that screen real estate. Samsung's solution? Add a little button on the side of the screen that allows users to hide them at the touch of a button. Unfortunately, this feature addition also takes something that I never thought of as a feature: the black nav bar.

[Deal Alert] Unlocked T-Mobile LG G5 (H830T) is $224.99 on eBay

The LG G5 wasn't quite the success LG hoped it would be. The phone's modular functionality, the primary selling point, never really took off. It didn't help that the phone was fairly expensive when it launched, hovering around $600-700 in the United States. The T-Mobile G5 (H830T) is now just $224.99 on eBay, which is $30-80 off what other stores are charging for the unlocked US model.

Three years after release, T-Mobile updates the LG G3 with bug fixes and newer security patches

The LG G3 was a pretty good phone when it was released in 2014. It had a Snapdragon 801 processor, a 5.5" 1440p display, 3GB of RAM, and a 3,000mAh removable battery. I expect the number of people still using the G3 in 2017 is pretty small, but if you're still hanging in there (and you're on T-Mobile), you have an update waiting for you.

T-Mobile's LTE-U network is rolling out in select cities

Back in February, T-Mobile announced that it would begin using unassigned portions of the 5GHz spectrum to offer more bandwidth and coverage to its customers. The company called this 'LTE-U,' and said that it would start rolling out to customers in the spring. Well, it's a bit past spring, but we're now starting to see LTE-U go live in select cities.

T-Mobile has two new buy one get one free deals for the LG G6, V20, Samsung Galaxy S8, and S8+

T-Mobile is eager to get a head-start on Father's Day sales. In a new promo, the magenta carrier is allowing both new and existing customers to pick up a 2nd Galaxy S8,  S8+, V20 or LG G6 for free with the purchase of their first one. There are terms and conditions associated with the deal, and the cost of the 2nd phone is reimbursed via a mail-in rebate, but it's not a bad offer if you've been looking to pick up a pair of the devices.

ZTE Quartz review: Missing a few features, but an impressive value

It's getting increasingly hard to justify a smartwatch purchase when so many of them are launching with such high price tags. Paying $400 or $500 for a watch that works the same as one that costs half as much is a tough sell, not that a cheaper watch is an easy sell either. That's what makes the ZTE Quartz intriguing. This is an Android Wear device that costs less than $200 and has a dedicated cellular connection on T-Mobile.

The Quartz is a bit large and clunky, and it's missing some of the features you get with more expensive watches. However, the design is solid considering the price, and it runs Android Wear just as well as more expensive watches.

T-Mobile plans to start 600MHz rollout this summer

We learned a few months ago that T-Mobile spent big in the FCC's recent 600MHz spectrum auction. The carrier dropped $7.99 billion on the spectrum licenses, which it has now officially been granted. It's wasting no time putting them to use. T-Mobile says it will begin rolling 600MHz coverage out to select markets over the summer.

Gear S3 Classic LTE now available from Verizon

Carriers and manufacturers are still trying to figure out how to sell smartwatches, and the latest idea is to make watches your phone away from phone. The LG Watch Sport and Verizon Wear24 are two Android Wear watches with LTE connectivity, allowing you to pop in a SIM card and receive phone calls and texts without a Bluetooth connection to your phone.

The Gear S3 and S3 Classic are Samsung's latest Tizen-powered watches, but until now, only a Wi-Fi version of the Classic model was available. An LTE model was announced in March, and it's finally available today at AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile.
