The Galaxy S III, first released back in 2012, only has official software support up to Android 4.3. No matter: the folks at the CyanogenMod development team are keeping the device alive long after Samsung threw in the towel. Today the AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint variants of the GSIII all get their very first nightly ROM builds for CyanogenMod 13, which is based on Android 6.0. You can find them at the d2att, d2tmo, and d2spr listings on the CM download page, respectively.

In contrast, Asus has already promised a Marshmallow build for the Zenfone 2, which is less than a year old at this point.

Samsung's Ludicrously Huge Galaxy View Tablet Now Available From Verizon

So, do you remember the Samsung Galaxy View mega-tablet? It came out a few months ago in WiFi-only form, and the price dropped almost immediately because most people don't want a tablet that big. Now, Verizon is selling an LTE-enabled version that's more expensive. This is innovation.

Get A Samsung Galaxy S7 With $0 Down And Free Shipping From AT&T [Sponsored Post]

If you're one to always jump on the newest and best smartphones, the latest from Samsung is undoubtedly on your radar. And when a smaller, slightly more manageable handset is what you're looking for, the Galaxy S7 is probably your best bet — its 5.1-inch quad HD display keeps the device's overall footprint small while the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM keeps everything snappy and responsive.

That's not all the GS7 has going for it, either — Samsung brought back the expandable storage option for this model, which is a pretty big deal to those who love to keep tons of stuff stored on their phones.

Are you excited about the LG G5? Well... if you've been reading Android Police for the past 24 hours, then you've likely forgotten about this year's MWC flagships because it's all about Android N (#N4LYFE) and the Galaxy S7 and LG G5 will only ship with Marshmallow.

Get Up To $650 In Credits Per Line When You Port Your Number To AT&T And Trade In Your Current Phone [Sponsored Post]

Changing carriers can be a real pain. In fact, a lot of people probably stick with their current carrier just to avoid the headache — even if they're unhappy with the service. AT&T wants to ease the pain and frustration a little bit by offering users who switch from another carrier up to $650 in credit per line. For a family, that can potentially be a huge savings. Here's how it works.

You buy a new smartphone from AT&T on a Next plan (both the phone and plan are your choice, of course) and port your existing number over. Check out the AT&T Buyback website and trade in your current smartphone — keep in mind that it must be eligible and not all phones are worth the same amount.

For the past ten months, Project Fi has been invite-only. That's now changing. Google is making the service available to anyone in the US who wants in.
