Another month, another security patch slowly coming to carrier-locked Samsung phones while handsets around the world have already started getting the update in October. This time around, the Verizon Galaxy Note20 series and the AT&T Galaxy Fold are the first carrier-locked devices in line to receive the update, most recently followed by the AT&T S10 and S9 series and the Z Flip.
Google's annual Pixel event, dubbed Launch Night In this time around, took place a month and a half ago, and now, you can finally go out (or online) to purchase your very own Pixel 4a 5G unit. The phone has been available for pre-order since October 29, but now you can just put it in your cart and get it right away.
Sony may not be great at selling smartphones, but it has been doing a pretty fine job of acquiring anime streaming companies. It bought Funimation in 2017, and now it looks like another deal might be closing soon that would bring Crunchyroll into the Sony stable at a price approaching one billion dollars.
The Pixel 5 may have the same bells and whistles of other modern flagships, but it does provide the best Google experience while checking off essentials like long battery life and reliable point-and-shoot cameras. Google said the device would be coming to retailers in the US and Canada after everywhere else, and wouldn't you know it, now it has — and we've got a roundup of the best deals on the newest Google flagship.
LG officially revealed its weird swivel-screened phone last month, dubbed the LG Wing. It's one of the more interesting takes on a dual-screen device we've seen yet, though the $999 price is a lot to pay for an unproven form factor. Thankfully, with AT&T selling the phone, there's a chance you could pay a bit less money.
If the Pixel 4a 5G or Pixel 5 will be your first foray into America's emergent 5G networks, you'll want to know where you can take the phone you've bought — especially if you're buying it directly from Verizon. So, let's get to sorting those airwaves out.
AT&T went to great lengths to resist changing its misleading 5G icon, but it needs no encouragement when it comes to changing up cellular plan options. Over the weekend, the company rolled out updates to its unlimited plans — and it looks like customers with multiple lines could save some significant cash.
Samsung is getting better with updates in general, but that doesn't seem to apply to carrier variants of its mid-range tablets. AT&T has just pushed the Android 10 update to the Galaxy Tab S5e (SM-T727A), months after it started rolling out to models in other regions.
You may not have heard of ad-supported phone plans before, but companies have experimented with them since the early 2000s. According to an interview with CEO John Stankey, AT&T is looking into such plans and could announce them in as soon as a year.
Look, we all know the state of 5G here in the US. The latest testing proves that it's not great. AT&T's 5G may be suspect in its home country, but now it's announcing a new roaming agreement that gives customers traveling abroad access to 5G in Japan.
