LG G Flex 2 is now live on Sprint and you can clearly get it at a great price if you choose a two-year commitment. One of the few curved-screen phones on the market, G Flex 2 has a 5.5” AMOLED 1080p screen with a banana curve and you can choose it in Volcano Red exclusive shade or regular Silver.
LG’s curved smartphone is also one of the first devices out there to ship with a Snapdragon 810 processor, which could either confirm the heat issues or deny them completely. The phone design remains flexible and the scratch resistant coating on the back is much more resistant and self-healing than the previous model version.
Sprint offers the LG G Flex 2 on a two-year contract for $199.99, and Easy Pay allows you to pay $21 per month for 24 months.
Sprint’s Nexus 6 will receive its Lollipop 5.1 update today. Shortly after Google announced the update, factory images of the newest version started showing up for some Nexus devices and they will go live sooner than you may have thought.
Sprint says that the Android 5.1 update with build number LMY47D will go live today, March 11th 2015, according to their support pages for Nexus 6 at least. Even if Sprint is sometimes wrong with their actual update dates, they are usually right and you can already start checking for updates on your Nexus 6. The update itself is supposed to rollout to all Nexus 6 variants soonest of all.
Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is finally getting the Lollipop treatment. This brings the device to version N910PVPU1BOB7 and it includes all the Lollipop sweetness you can expect.
Among the most important changes you will find WiFi calling enhancements. You may have to wait for a bit though, as Sprint usually releases its updates in stages. You can, of course, hit that update button to check things out.
All five major US carriers will be selling Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge as soon as they become available. Sprint, AT&T, Verizon, US Cellular and T Mobile are going to sell Samsung’s flagships according to various official statements. Its launch hasn’t cooled down yet, but everyone wants to distribute it to the masses it seems, and distribute they shall.
For starters, Sprint will distribute the blue version and there is no information regarding the price yet, as it is the deal with all carriers at the moment. If you want to receive email updates, you can sign-up on their website.
AT&T already set up a “coming soon” page for the S6 and S6 Edge and they both look innocently white. If you are keen on buying a phone that works all over the world and is not bound to one US carrier, AT&T is usually the way to go.
Verizon is also sporting the blue version of both Samsung devices and they show small amounts of carrier branding. A white model will also be available. You can be kept to date with info regarding the coming price and availability with an email sign-up.
T Mobile is also showing the apparently popular blue model paired with a video similar to that of HTC One M9 plus a sign-up page. Unlike the rest of the US carriers, T Mobile usually allows the bootloaders of its devices to be unlocked, making tinkering and other dangerous “baking” situations much easier for enthusiasts.
US Cellular will be sporting the same S6 and S6 Edge in blue and white. The pre-register function forwards users to the Samsung mini-site where you can select devices from the five carriers.
Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will officially launch on April 10th and it will take between a week to six weeks for them to become available on all US carriers as well as world-wide.
HTC One M9 will be available on four out of the five major US carriers as soon as it becomes available to the public. US Cellular is the odd one out of the bunch as their representative said that it was not on their release schedule at the moment whereas Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge will be carried.
AT&T is all in and already presented its variation and put up a sign-up page. They will offer the silver/gold model as well as the black version. There is no launch date or price available at the moment, but AT&T mentioned selling the HTC Grip fitness tracker as well.
Verizon announced their support for HTC One M9 on Twitter only, mentioning that the device will be available in the early second quarter of 2015.
Sprint showed the M9 in a press release and a promo page with email registration and there will possibly be support for the black variant only, according to the already presented photos. Sprint also mentions selling the phone early this spring with price and availability to be disclosed soon.
T Mobile has a press release, a video and a sign-up page with no pricing and info regarding the release date.
