Verizon's Galaxy S10 5G is officially launching today, making it the first carrier to market with a 5G phone in the US. Sprint isn't far behind with its LG V50 5G, today announcing that it would be available for pre-order tomorrow. Plus, for a limited time, Sprint is slashing 50% off its lease price. Read More
The LG V40 is a very good phone, but it's really only worth considering if you can get it for a good deal. It normally costs $40 per month (over 18 months) to lease on Sprint, but there was a special preorder price of $20/month.

Sprint is the latest carrier to announce it's done with the contract approach to selling phones. This comes just days after Verizon made the same announcement. T-Mobile, of course, has been doing this for several years. Read More
