LG adds US unlocked LG G5 (RS988) to bootloader unlock tool

Okay look, the LG G5 was not a successful phone. There's little reason at this point to run out and buy one, but that doesn't mean there's no reason. LG just added the US unlocked model (RS988) to its bootloader unlocking tool. If you need a fast phone with an unlockable bootloader, there are worse choices.

Samsung is switching to a monthly security update schedule for US-unlocked Galaxy phones

When the US unlocked models of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge were released, many were overjoyed to have a variant that wouldn't be tied to a carrier, yet would be fully compatible with all four major carriers here in the states. Despite these unlocked versions' higher price tags, many picked them up in hopes of less bloat and quicker updates.

[Deal Alert] Get a new and unlocked LG G5 with a warranty for just $299.99 on eBay

Chances are that you haven't seen the LG G5 on any "Best Flagship of 2016" lists. That's understandable; the build quality's a bit iffy, and it's not the best-looking piece of tech in the world. However, at just $299.99 for a brand new, unlocked unit, it's definitely worth looking into, especially since it has features that many other flagships don't even have.

We're fast approaching MWC with some of the major highlights of the event, like the Moto G5, seeing some serious leaks.

Under Google's leadership, Motorola was perhaps the best manufacturer when it came to Android updates - besides Google, of course. They often released Android updates for unlocked devices at the same time as, or shortly after, Nexus devices. Unfortunately updates don't seem to be much of a priority anymore, with Lenovo now at the helm.
