Ah, the HTC One – a phone that needs no introduction. A phone that is well on its way to putting HTC back on the map in a big way. The first real contender to the powerhouse Galaxy S4 – and possibly one of the most important smartphones of the year. A phone that might even change the hearts and minds of even the biggest HTC haters out there.
And now's your chance to win one, courtesy of AT&T. Read More
Didn't pick up AT&T's version of the Galaxy S4 when it hit shelves this weekend? You're a smart one (not to say that those who did pick one up aren't smart, of course), because Amazon Wireless has already knocked the price down to $168. Sure, that's a pretty random amount ($32 off AT&T's price) considering we're used to seeing prices drop in increments of $50, but hey – a deal is a deal, right? Read More
After showing up on eBay Daily Deals a week ago and promptly going out of stock, the Galaxy Note II is back in
black Anthracite Gray on eBay Daily Deals once again for just $499.99 shipped.
This particular Note II is the international unlocked GSM model, (meaning no LTE) touting quad-band HSPA+ 3G data connectivity. The upshot is that you can take this Note II pretty much anywhere in the world and it'll work - just toss a SIM in and you're good to go. Read More
Verizon just posted up some software update documents for the LG Revolution, one of the aging first-gen LTE handsets that debuted on the network way back in 2011. The software version is VS910ZVB, as opposed to the build that rolled out a year ago - VS910ZV9.
The new build includes some OS security fixes, removes quite a few pieces of bloatware, and updates Google Maps Services. Given the removal of bloat and patching of holes, this may well be the last update the Revolution ever sees. Read More
T-Mobile may be a little late to the party, but there is plenty of love to go around. T-Mobile customers can now find the Galaxy S4 available from the carrier's website for the expected price of $149 with a two-year contract, in white or black. Overnight shipping is available for those who cannot wait any longer, and since T-Mobile is pushing this as a limited-time offer, you might not want to. Read More
Those of you who didn't appreciate the divisive smartphone style of the Galaxy Note 8.0 might want to avert your eyes right about now. The South Korean company pulled the wraps off of the first entry in the fourth generation of its Galaxy Tab series today, and there's no denying that the 7-inch tablet looks like a gigantic smartphone. The Galaxy Tab 3 will be available worldwide in May in a WiFi version with a 3G variant following in June, though specific markets were not mentioned. Read More
Sony's Xperia Tablet Z, the tablet first announced for Japan about three months ago, and spotted again at MWC, is finally up for pre-order for those customers awaiting the device's US launch.
When we saw the Tablet Z in person at Mobile World Congress, its super thin, super light water/dust-resistant frame impressed. Its 1920x1200 10.1" display, S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM and promised Android 4.2 base also sounded good on paper, but we concluded it could still be held back by two things: a 6000mAh battery, and a $500 price point for the 16GB model.

ASUS is on a roll with the 4.2 updates lately – it started with the TF300 (Wi-Fi) back in early March, and followed with the Infinity (TF700) and MeMO Pad Smart shortly after. And of course, it released full ROM downloads along the way for those who prefer to manually flash their devices.
The 3G version of the TF300 – the TF300TG – is next in line for the 4.2.1 update, which appears to have started rolling out sometime over the past couple of days. Read More
Oppo Find 5 is one of the sexiest Android phones in recent history - just take a look at some of the photos in our review published earlier this year. At $499.99 ($569.99 for the 32GB variant), it's also cheaper than most unlocked high-end modern devices, yet it manages to pack a quad-core 1.5GHz Krait, Adreno 320, 2GB of RAM, a 1080P 5" display, a 13MP camera, NFC, and a 2500mAh battery.

The day is finally here, boys and gals. The successor to the most popular Android phone to date is available online for those on AT&T and Sprint. For the small price of two-hundred dollars (with a two-year agreement), you can nab your very own Galaxy S4 on AT&T; if you're not into the idea of giving up on two Benjamins, however, you can score one on Sprint's network for $150... so long as you're willing to port your number in from another carrier.
