I think we can all agree that AT&T's $300 on-contract price for the LG G Flex is unacceptable. Sprint's $250 asking price is also too high, though not as obscene. If you're looking for a curved phone, you can get the G Flex for a mere $99.99 on-contract with either carrier through Amazon.
Verizon is already selling the new HTC One, and you can get two of them cheap as long as you don't mind signing a new contract. The buy-one-get-one-free deal on Verizon is enticing if you need two phones, but it gets even better. You can get 30% off the cost of the phone you're actually paying for.
Our long national nightmare is over – AT&T has finally started pushing the KitKat update to Galaxy Note 3 owners. After updating, you'll see a new system UI, improved GPS, and an improved camera experience. It's all just a download away.
Well, that didn't take long. After getting word yesterday that the update was ready, Ma Bell has started rolling out Android 4.4.2 KitKat to the HTC One Mini. Along with 4.4.2, the update includes HTC Sense 5.5 with all the OEM-specific tweaks you'd expect.
Rather impressively, the HTC One M8 is now available online in the US from AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless. Pricing doesn't deviate too much among them, but there is enough variance to make it worth shopping around for anyone who isn't already tied down.
Verizon is making the best offer here. Price wise, the carrier will let go of the M8 for $199.99 with a two-year agreement, $25.22 a month with Verizon Edge, and $599.99 without a contract (which, by the way, is $100 less than the Google Play Edition and the lowest contract-free price of the three carriers).

Update: it looks like the floodgates have opened. A Facebook user showed full photos of the new One, including the back of a Verizon retail box confirming a Snapdragon 801 processor, MicroSD card slot, 2GB of RAM, and a nanoSIM tray.

Today's the day T-Mobile makes the Galaxy S5 available for pre-order, following closely behind AT&T and US Cellular. Eager customers are now welcome over at the carrier's website, where they can call dibs on a Galaxy S5. No one will be charged until the devices are actually shipped, but the handset will go for $660 upfront or $27.50 a month for twenty-four months.
T-Mobile's prices closely match those of AT&T, though its full retail price is $10 pricier than the latter. Read More
Update: The OTA is now live (thanks, Michael Tomy)!
Good grief, AT&T, you're not usually so far behind the pack. I imagine your Moto X customers, who've had to wait behind their counterparts at Verizon, Sprint, US Cellular, and T-Mobile/unlocked carriers for the update to the slightly newer version of KitKat, aren't pleased. But if an updated Motorola support page is any indication, it looks like the Android 4.4.2 over-the-air update may be coming very soon. Read More
Sprint is joining the ranks of carriers that will take your cash for the promise of delivering a Galaxy S5 to your door next month. The device can be obtained in two ways on the Now Network – $199.99 (after a $50 mail in rebate) with a contract, or $0 down and monthly payments with Easy Pay.
The big day has finally arrived – you can lay down some hard-earned cash on Samsung's latest and greatest. AT&T is asking $199.99 for the Galaxy S5 in either white or black, with shipping currently slated for April 8th. You can expect the device to show up on or around the April 11th release date.
