Gear S3 Classic LTE now available from Verizon

Carriers and manufacturers are still trying to figure out how to sell smartwatches, and the latest idea is to make watches your phone away from phone. The LG Watch Sport and Verizon Wear24 are two Android Wear watches with LTE connectivity, allowing you to pop in a SIM card and receive phone calls and texts without a Bluetooth connection to your phone.

The Gear S3 and S3 Classic are Samsung's latest Tizen-powered watches, but until now, only a Wi-Fi version of the Classic model was available. An LTE model was announced in March, and it's finally available today at AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile.

[Deal Alert] Sprint offers the LG G6 at 50% off, Best Buy discounts the Verizon version even more to $288

If you've been eying the quasi new LG G6 and you're stuck indoors today and passing your time by browsing, you might have stumbled onto two super nice deals for the phone.

First up, Sprint is offering 50% off the LG G6 by lowering the monthly installments from $29.5 to $14.75 over 24 months. That brings the price down to $360 total. The offer applies to existing "well-qualified" customers and new activations on Unlimited Freedom. It doesn't look like this is one of those deals where you pay the whole sum then get reimbursed credit for the rest, so the discount should apply from the get-go.

Verizon's ASUS ZenPad Z8 tablet is receiving its Android 7.0 Nougat update

Android Oreo (yes, I'm calling it) is almost here, but not all devices are equal when it comes to update speed. In this case, both the manufacturer (ASUS) and carrier (Verizon) are well-known for updating devices rather slowly, which is probably why it's taken until nearly June of 2017 to update the ZenPad Z8 to Android 7.0 Nougat. But hey, it's here now.

T-Mobile announces spectacular attempt to steal Verizon customers by paying off their Pixel bills

John Legere has a well-deserved reputation for being an eccentric CEO. After spells at AT&T and Dell, he's now the top dog at America's third largest carrier, T-Mobile. His latest crazy scheme to pull US customers away from other networks is wonderfully simple: His company will pay off your smartphone in its entirety if you switch over from Verizon.

[Update: There will be an unlocked model too] The ZenFone AR will be a Verizon exclusive in the United States

Mobile VR hasn't really taken off, and Google's augmented-reality Project Tango experiment is in the same boat. The first publicly-available phone with Project Tango, the Lenovo Phab2 Pro, launched last year. If you read our review, you'll know that the massive size, poor performance, and price made it a hard sell even for VR/AR enthusiasts.

Unfortunately, the upcoming Tango-powered ZenFone AR already has a major flaw; it will be a Verizon-exclusive in the United States.
