LG is hoping to step out of Samsung's shadow a bit with the new G2. Having dropped the Optimus naming scheme, the G2 is the company's 2013 flagship, and it has the specs to earn the name. If the raw numbers don't get you, it's always got those back-facing buttons.
AT&T is asking $199 for the G2 on a 2-year contract, or $575 without subsidy. If you want to save a little scratch up front, AT&T Next gets you the phone for $27 per month. Read More
After debuting on AT&T, then making its way to Verizon, the Moto X has reached the Now Network. Sprint's Moto X is on sale, and you can get a solid deal if you're coming over from a rival carrier. After the contract subsidy and a $100 port-in credit, you only have to pay $99 for the device. Not your situation? Sorry, that'll be $199.
The Moto X is the first device from Motorola that is fully backed by Google. Read More
Note: The Gtab 3 was incorrectly listed on AT&T's site at $299 on-contract until midday Friday. It's only $199, and $99 if you buy a Galaxy S4, S4 Active, or Note II at the same time.
AT&T is making the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 available on its LTE network. This is the almost same tablet you can get online without the LTE, but it costs a bit more here. Read More
If you want a big phone with a faux-leather back, the Galaxy Note 3 is the only game in town. AT&T customers can get in line now to wrap their hands around the Note 3. Well, assuming they can fit their hands around it at all. AT&T is taking pre-orders right this minute.
The Note 3 comes in black and white – no sign of that stylish pink one yet. If the prospect of a 2-year contract frightens you, there's always the outrageous $724.99 full price option. Read More
The big US carriers are lining up to take your money and hand you a shiny new Galaxy Note 3. T-Mobile is announcing it will be selling the Note 3 on October 2nd. And while you're at it, why not get a Galaxy Gear smartwatch too? It's only another $299.
The Note 3 will cost buyers $199 up front, plus $21 per month for 24 months. This is T-Mobile's new contract-free plan. Read More
Google got more than a few raised eyebrows when a possible candidate for the next Nexus phone, bearing what was probably LG branding and a Nexus 7 2013-style horizontal logo, was leaked in the video for the Android 4.4 statue. Now some sleuths at S4GRU have connected a few dots and found that an FCC filing for the LG D820 looks an awful lot like that leaked device.
The FCC filing is focused on the phone's wireless specifications, since that's what the Commission has to certify. Read More
These days, it seems like everybody is trying to make Android more secure. As usual, rooting and modding are often casualties of this effort. Just over a month ago Android 4.3 broke the existing model for root, forcing updates to existing methods, and now Samsung is rolling out updated Android 4.2.2 firmwares for the Galaxy S 4 which fully enable the company's heavily secured KNOX environment. Fortunately, Chainfire is already on top of it and has updated his popular root software, SuperSU, to be compatible with the new system. Read More
Sprintsters (and potential Sprintsters of the future), listen up: Motorola's new flagship is hitting The Now Network tomorrow. That doesn't give you a whole lot of time to get ready to pick up the new handset, so you better start digging through the couch cushions now.
The always-listening, Active Display-packing powerhouse will be available in both woven black and woven white for $199 with a two-year agreement. If you're the customizin' type, however, you'll be waiting a while – Sprint says Moto Maker support won't be support for at least a few months. Read More
In case you haven't already read our coverage of Samsung's big reveal of the Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear or taken a gander at our hands-on video of both the phablet and the smartwatch, here's the gist. The former is an updated version of the Galaxy Note II with a new leather-textured plastic back, increased storage space, and a 1080p display. It's not wider than the previous model, but it's taller and packing more power inside along with a larger battery. Read More
If you've been waiting on new mobile hardware from Lenovo to hit the scene, well ... you might be the only one. And if that's the case, then this post is just for you. Feel special.
At IFA in Berlin today, Lenovo has taken the wraps off a couple of new devices: the Vibe X smartphone and S5000 tablet. While we're only likely to see the latter here in the states, let's take a quick look at the former to kick things off – it doesn't seem to be half bad. Read More
