The Galaxy S9 and S9+ are both official now, but there's still the pesky question of where to pick one up. You can always go the unlocked route, but carrier deals can present a decent discount. Plus, you've got aesthetics to take into consideration. Will this retailer have that color? And where can you grab it first? If you can't focus past the adjustable aperture in your enthusiasm for Samsung's latest, don't worry. We've got those details here. Read More
AT&T and Android Police have partnered up to give three of our readers a brand new Samsung Galaxy S8 Active, which is a $849 value. Read More
It has been proven time and time again that using SMS for two-factor authentication isn't very secure. While it's certainly better than having no 2FA at all, working around it only takes someone fooling a carrier into sending them a SIM card meant for you. Likely due to so many of these accidents occurring, all major US carriers began working to improve mobile 2FA last year. Read More
AT&T has released a few details on its upcoming 5G network. We know a dozen cities will have 5G by the end of the year, and three of them will be Waco, Dallas, and Atlanta. It's even hinted that devices will come to market in time for consumers to try the new network as it launches. Which devices, though? And what about the future of AT&T's 5G? The company is being a little more forthcoming at MWC. Read More
AT&T has been vague on its 5G plans, saying only that a dozen cities will have 5G of some sort by the end of the year. Today, AT&T's plans are slightly less vague. We know three of those dozen 5G markets: Dallas, Waco, and Atlanta. Read More
The Android tablet market is a proverbial scarce wasteland these days. It has been quite some time since we saw something from Samsung or Asus, two of the last major stalwart players in this space (excluding Amazon, obviously). Tablets are not what they were in years past, though I personally still find having one useful for certain situations, despite Android leaving much to be desired in this aspect. Read More
Thanks to our friends at AT&T, one lucky Android Police reader is about to win a free Samsung Galaxy Note8. Read More
Back in December, T-Mobile uploaded a two minute-long short to its YouTube channel, in the style of classic stop-motion specials like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. It mostly consists of T-Mobile CEO John Legere telling a story about how he saved the US wireless industry from the "abominable carriers." It's a mostly harmless video, but AT&T has decided to file a complaint with the National Advertising Division over it. Read More
OpenSignal's bi-yearly carrier report for the US was just released, and T-Mobile's rampage from last year seems to be continuing. Although both Verizon and AT&T are seeing some recovery in network speed after the reintroduction of their unlimited plans last year, T-Mobile has again topped nearly every category in OpenSignal's testing. Sprint, though still in 4th overall, is also making great strides in both speed and availability. Read More
If you live in the United States and walk into a Verizon store, you have essentially four options when it comes to choosing a premium smartphone brand: Apple, Samsung, LG, and Google. Yesterday, we learned that continuing to expect LG will be one of these options probably isn't the best bet.
While there may yet be a premium LG phone that launches on Verizon, the Korean conglomerate looks poised to join Motorola as one of Verizon's when-it's-convenient handset partners, and is quite possibly on its way to the Verizon graveyard with the likes of HTC, Sony, and BlackBerry.
The same can generally be said of AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Read More
