Sprint Samsung Galaxy S III Android 4.4 KitKat update now rolling out

Another day, another KitKat update. It does seem like every 24 hours we get news about a new rollout of Google’s newest version of Android, but all of these come after many months in which we had no such news. After all, KitKat was made official in October last year. So all of these updates have been a long time coming. This time around, the happy recipient of the new bits is Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S III. While for the...

LG G3 may have 16 MP camera, 2 GB of RAM

The LG G3 is coming soon, that’s clear. It may get announced in May or June and could be in stores in July. Earlier this month someone found a user agent profile for what seemed to be Sprint’s version of the G3, and that got us a list of specs for the handset. And now, that user agent profile (UAProf) has been updated. Previously, the main camera was listed as being a 13 MP unit, while now it’s been bumped up to 16...

HTC One M8 for Verizon and Sprint now just $149.99 with contract

Ever since it launched not long ago, the new HTC One M8 has been priced by US carriers at $199.99 with a new two-year contract.

But if you wanted to save a few bucks on the purchase and haven’t yet bought your very own One M8, Amazon has...

LG G2 Mini will be offered by Sprint with upgraded screen resolution

The LG G2 Mini may not be awe-inspiring in terms of specs, but it is a handset that brings the G2’s looks to a smaller footprint, something which many may appreciate – alongside the back-mounted buttons and various unique software features. One of the most puzzling decisions that LG made for the G2 Mini and its specs was undoubtedly going for a 4.7-inch screen that only has 540×960 resolution. Even the Samsung Galaxy...
