Android 11 is slowly starting to make its way to Samsung phones on US carriers, with the Verizon Galaxy S20 FE being the latest recipient. The update started hitting global S20 FE variants around a month ago, making its way stateside last week on the AT&T model. Now, it's Big Red's turn to send the OTA out.
Game trials are fine, but it's hard not to question if sometimes they're feeding you just the best experience of a game. Free weekends give players a better opportunity to experience the full game and learn what it's really like before dropping their hard-earned cash on making a purchase. If you're up for spending some serious time with Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint, do some stretches and set aside this weekend for some serious action.
Podcast player application Pocket Casts was acquired by a public radio group in mid-2018, right around the time Spotify started expanding into the podcast world. The service has had some ups and downs since then, but now it looks like Pocket Casts could have new ownership in the near future.
Samsung announced its newest pair of wireless earbuds last week. They're sounding pretty solid so far, but it looks like the company is already pushing out an update for the buds with new features and tweaks in tow, making the Galaxy Buds Pro an even more attractive option for potential buyers.
One of the hidden gems in the MVNO sector was FreedomPop's free plan: for some people, 500 texts, 200 minutes, and 200MB of LTE (plus a pay-as-you-go overage rate of 2.5¢ per MB) goes far in a month. Recently, though, the company made sweeping changes to the so-called "freemium" plan by pushing Wi-Fi calling and messaging to the forefront and making drastic cuts to talk, text, and cellular data allowances. Worse yet is the sense of urgency put into place as those grandfathered into the old free plan have been told they will be kicked off of it after January 31.

The Pixel 4a 5G is a great phone for those on a budget, making it our current top pick of the Pixel bunch. The 4a 5G was already a bargain at $500, offering most of the features found in the Pixel 5 with only a few compromises, like the lack of wireless charging and high-refresh-rate display. Despite only being a few months old, several retailers are already selling it for $460 ($40 off), so if you've been thinking about buying one, now would be a great time to do so.
Samsung just released the Galaxy S21 last week, and now, the first teardown video is already available for you to gaze at. It comes courtesy of YouTube channel PBKreviews and features a complete disassembly and reassembly of the regular S21, complete with the first repairability assessment.

Wallace & Gromit: The Big Fix Up is an upcoming augmented reality game for mobile, and it's slated for release in the UK in the fall of 2020 and will be released worldwide at a later date. Since this is a fresh announcement, only a few details have been shared, and so far, we know the game will be animated through CG, and that fans will get to join the duo in their latest business venture as an employee of the Spick & Spanners. Ideally, the game will provide a home-based experience (as in this AR game can easily be played at home), and will support the majority of modern smartphones.
