Every six months, OpenSignal releases a report on the state of mobile networks in the US, with six total awards. In February 2017's report, T-Mobile and Verizon each won four awards (there were two ties). For August 2017, though, T-Mobile managed to take all six awards, which is something that has never been done before. Read More
Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S8 Active hasn't been announced yet, but we already know almost everything about it.

As AT&T continues to push for approval of its $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner, the company's leadership has released details of how the new mega-corporation would be structured. The plan calls for the new AT&T to split into independent arms, one handling media and the other doing telecom. This may appease regulators, but things aren't changing at the top. Read More
Cheap phones are becoming good, and good phones are becoming cheap. Devices like the Moto G5 Plus are proving that you don't need to spend hundreds of dollars to have a great phone, and ZTE's new Blade Spark seems to be a great entry in the budget phone category. Read More
The GoPhone brand made its public debut back in 1987, but after 30 years, AT&T has retired it in favor of a simple "AT&T PREPAID."

This is a very specific but potentially great deal. Today over at eBay you can pick up a Galaxy S7 edge G935A carrier-locked to AT&T for just $299.99. They're not new, but they are being sold as "manufacturer refurbished," which is usually OK. Generally, we avoid talking about refurbished devices, but this is an incredible deal.
If Motorola was a boat, it would already be at the bottom of the ocean with all these leaks. If you're not familiar with the company's current lineup, the existing Moto Z Force is a more durable version of the Z with a "Shattershield" screen (from the DROID Turbo 2).

Another day, another phone to get Android 7.0 Nougat. This time it's the 2016 AT&T LG K10's turn. This particular phone has been a bit ignored by AT&T. Their support page shows this is only the 2nd update the device has ever received. At least the jump to Nougat includes the April 1st security patches, so it should be reasonably secure for some time if AT&T doesn't keep it up to date. Read More
