Samsung is switching to a monthly security update schedule for US-unlocked Galaxy phones

When the US unlocked models of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge were released, many were overjoyed to have a variant that wouldn't be tied to a carrier, yet would be fully compatible with all four major carriers here in the states. Despite these unlocked versions' higher price tags, many picked them up in hopes of less bloat and quicker updates.

[Deal Alert] Get a new and unlocked LG G5 with a warranty for just $299.99 on eBay

Chances are that you haven't seen the LG G5 on any "Best Flagship of 2016" lists. That's understandable; the build quality's a bit iffy, and it's not the best-looking piece of tech in the world. However, at just $299.99 for a brand new, unlocked unit, it's definitely worth looking into, especially since it has features that many other flagships don't even have.
