[Deal Alert] Get a Verizon/unlocked Galaxy S8 with warranty for just $699.99 ($56 off) from a reputable eBay seller

The still-new Galaxy S8 is arguably the best phone on the market right now. The gorgeous Infinity Display and Snapdragon 835 are features that competitors just can't match. That being said, at $756 + tax for the Verizon model, it's on the higher end of the market. Even though it's been less than a week since pre-orders have been arriving on tech enthusiasts' doorsteps, you can save a pretty significant chunk of change by purchasing one from a Top Rated Plus seller on eBay.

ZTE announces the MAX XL with a 6-inch display and Android 7.1.1

You can still spend nearly $1000 on a phone if you want, but there are vastly cheaper options that aren't terrible. ZTE has been making great strides in the "cheap but not bad" space lately, and it has just announced a new device called the MAX XL. As the name suggests, it's a big phone. The price isn't big, though. This device is live on Boost Mobile today for $129.99, and it's on sale for $28 off.

AT&T is the first carrier to say it has a "5G" network, which is complete bullshit

I didn't think it would be AT&T, but I knew we could count on one of America's lovely carriers to open the door to the complete and utter ruination of any agreed-upon definition of "5G." Today, AT&T announced a bunch of new 4G LTE features (which is what they are) were being rolled out to its network, and it's given these features a name: 5G Evolution.

Now, the reason 5G has a qualifier is simple: because this isn't 5G. It'd be like taking the inline 4-cylinder engine out of your car, replacing it with a V6, but saying that you're now running a V8 Evolution, because hey, you're closer to a V8 than you were before.

T-Mobile customers may have seen the recent news that Galaxy Note5 owners on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon were starting to get the Android 7.0 Nougat update, and worried that they were being overlooked. But fear not! It appears that nougaty goodness is just around the corner for you.

The Galaxy S8 will have no external carrier branding, even on Verizon and AT&T

No matter how you feel about Samsung and the Galaxy S8/S8 Plus, you have to admit they're really, really pretty phones. The curved display and sleek frame are incredibly well-designed compared to most other devices, and the GS8 will stand out in one other unexpected way—there's no carrier branding. Even Verizon and AT&T have been persuaded not to stamp their logos all over the phones.

Sprint offering two-for-one deal on Galaxy S8, but beware the fine print

The Galaxy S8 is starting to trickle out to those who pre-ordered, but Sprint is offering what sounds like a very good deal for anyone still on the fence. Starting tomorrow, you can get two Galaxy S8 smartphones (not the Plus) for the price of one, which seems great. Like with all things Sprint lately, there's a ton of fine print that you need to factor in.

Sprint expands international roaming to 165 countries with free 'basic' data, free texts, and $0.20/min calls, revamps high-speed data

Free or cheap international service is something many US carriers have been doing lately. Not having to buy a separate SIM card when you travel abroad is a very nice convenience, even if some aspects of your plan suffer a bit. Today, Sprint has announced that it's ramping up its international service to 165 countries, as well as some other new tidbits.

Verizon releases more details on its exclusive Wear24 smartwatch, launching May 11

Verizon announced its very own Android Wear device a few months ago, but it didn't have specs or an exact release date. The previous "next month" release window came and went (that would have been March), but now we've got more specifics. The device launches in 24 days (because Wear24), and there are a couple items on the spec sheet.
