Sprint Brands Its Tri-Band LTE Network "Spark," Four Tri-Band Phones Coming Nov. 8, Speeds "Around 50-60Mbps"

Sprint Brands Its Tri-Band LTE Network "Spark," Four Tri-Band Phones Coming Nov. 8, Speeds "Around 50-60Mbps"

While Sprint's tri-band LTE network is far from a secret, the company's going on an all-out marketing offensive promoting the technology, which it's now given a name: Sprint Spark. Capitalizing on the unique capabilities of its newly-purchased Clearwire spectrum, Sprint is set to roll out what will likely be the US's largest LTE network in terms of spectrum usage over the coming years. That's primarily because Sprint's Clearwire acquisition granted it a block of wireless spectrum from 2500-2600MHz, the single largest contiguous frequency lease in use by any mobile data provider in the United States.

BLU Life View Review: An Excellent Huge Screen Experience For Less Than $300

BLU Life View Review: An Excellent Huge Screen Experience For Less Than $300

A few weeks ago, we took a look a the BLU Life Play, which was our first foray with a BLU device. It's an impressive device that keeps the costs down by cutting corners in all the right places, which of course made me interested in other BLU devices, so the company sent me its newest handset, the massive 5.7-inch Life View. Internally, it's basically the same as the Life Play, but externally it couldn't be more different.

Sprint Galaxy Note 3 Gets Software Update Version MJ4 That Should Fix Awful Call Quality Issues And A Broken Keyboard Handwriting Mode

Sprint customers typically complain about the lackluster data coverage, but they at least have generally been able to make phone calls. Yet many customers who went out and bought the Galaxy Note 3 from the carrier found that even that ability was lacking. They suffered from garbled voices, popping sounds, and all about terrible audio quality leaving them wondering why they bought a phone over a tablet in the first place.

Samsung To Extend Galaxy Gear Support To The S4, S III, Note II, And Other Devices Starting At The End Of October

Samsung To Extend Galaxy Gear Support To The S4, S III, Note II, And Other Devices Starting At The End Of October

Out of the gate, the Samsung Galaxy Gear has made for the tough sell. It's hard enough to justify dropping $299 on a watch, but it's even more difficult to shell out that much on one that only pairs with a single device. Customers who don't want the Galaxy Note 3 or aren't ready to cut the cord on their current handsets have thus far been out of luck. Of course, Samsung has been upfront from the beginning that it planned to release support for slightly older Galaxy devices down the road.

LG's Curved G Flex Smartphone Appears In More Detailed Photos And A Hands-On Video [Poll]

We've all long known that curved smartphones were coming, it was just a matter of when. Yet once Samsung unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Round, the hot dog shaped device still managed to catch us off guard. Quite frankly, the handset from Samsung's South Korean competitor, the LG G Flex, which is curved from top-to-bottom (rather than left-to-right) looks more like what we had in mind when we thought of curved screens.

More Twitter Beta App Tweaks: Consolidated Tweet Buttons And A Lot Of Crashing

Twitter has been steadily tweaking their beta release channel for the Android app, and the latest update removes one of the most poorly-received features from the last beta version. The translucent tri-button array at the bottom of the screen (post a photo from storage, take a photo, or a simple textual tweet) has been removed, and is now replaced with a single, consolidated button.

[Hands-On Preview] Anomaly 2 Introduces Transforming Robots To An Already Awesome Game Franchise

[Hands-On Preview] Anomaly 2 Introduces Transforming Robots To An Already Awesome Game Franchise

The original Anomaly Warzone and follow-up Anomaly Korea were undeniably two of the best titles to come out on Android in the last few years. These games take the tower defense genre and turn it on its head by putting you in the control of the creeps. Under constant attack by defense towers, you have to repair, upgrade, and manage your units to reach the goal. It's much the same idea in the upcoming Anomaly 2, but you've got new units and some new gameplay mechanics to figure out.
