Sprint can't seem to figure out what the deal is with those new jobs it announced, but it knows it would very much like you to buy a new LG V20. This device has been discounted a whopping 50%, but you need to sign up or upgrade your Sprint line by the end of 2016 to get the deal. Read More
Sprint announced today - shortly after a Donald Trump name-drop - that it was planning to "bring back" 5000 jobs to the United States. Trump claimed the deal was brokered in part by Sprint's owner, Softbank CEO Masayoshi Son.
Predictably, the new jobs seem likely to be centered around sales and customer service positions if Sprint's press release is any indicator. This means the vast majority of these new positions will be poorly paying and first in line for any future belt-tightening if things go south at America's #4 carrier. Read More
The Pixel is kind of, sort of exclusive to Verizon. Actually, Verizon is the only carrier that can sell the phone directly, but Google sells them online as well. Then there's T-Mobile which offers account credits if you activate a Pixel, and now Sprint is doing the same. However, it's not advertising the promo, and you might have to ask nicely in order to get it. Read More
Is Pokémon GO still cool? Because Sprint desperately needs to be associated with something cool. The nation's number four carrier is now the exclusive US carrier partner of Pokémon GO. What does that mean? More Poké Stops, more gyms, and more Sprint branding. Read More
If you closely follow smartphone deals, you know that the US unlocked models of Samsung's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge don't often go on sale.

Got a Sprint LG G5? You may want to check for system updates in settings, as Sprint has begun to push the Android 7.0 Nougat update to LG's primer-covered flagship. Sprint and LG are both notoriously good with updates, so it's not a huge surprise that the Sprint G5 is one of the first flagships to get a taste of Nougat-y goodness. Read More
Samsung launched the Note7 a few months ago with a lovely blue color option. Sadly, that phone was cancelled due to the defective battery issues. That left everyone with no way to get that nice blue phone, until now. The previously announced Blue Coral GS7 Edge is now live on AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. It didn't take as long as we expected. Read More
Usain Bolt's branding on the new HTC Bolt should be enough indication to you that Sprint is marketing this new smartphone for its speed. But as the geeks that we are, we've probably jumped to the conclusion that we're talking about the processor, except that nope. This is Sprint's fastest smartphone yet, if we're only talking about its network capabilities. The Bolt is the first device to support Sprint's LTE Plus three-channel carrier aggregation, which is already live in Chicago, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Cleveland, and Columbus.
LTE speeds aside, the Bolt is a mid to high-end smartphone. The entire device is made of glass and metal with a 5.5" Quad HD Super LCD 3 display on the front covered with curved-edge Corning Gorilla Glass 5. Read More
Late last week, an eagle-eyed XDA user and Galaxy S7 edge owner noticed an app in the Galaxy Apps store entitled "Galaxy beta program." Not unexpectedly, many owners of Galaxy S7-series phones, myself included, got excited. Now, thanks to a major oversight on Samsung's part, we've got a ton of information about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Beta Program.
Starting November 9th, select Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge models in the United States, United Kingdom, South Korea, and China will be permitted to enroll in the Galaxy Beta Program. This program will allow participants to try out Android 7.0 Nougat, in hopes that they'll provide feedback helpful to engineers. Read More
