If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Yesterday, Sprint caught the attention of numerous wireless subscribers with its “Cut Your Bill in Half” promotion. The United States’ third-place wireless provider promised AT&T and Verizon Wireless customers that it would cut their bills in half if they made the switch to Sprint. The promotion, however, was loaded with caveats with the biggest one being that you had to trade in your existing smartphone to Sprint with no compensation in return. In addition, customers that don’t handover their current smartphone within 30 days are hit with a... Read more...
The pricing war between wireless carriers continues to heat up. AT&T initiated a limited time promotion back in September that doubled the data available for Mobile Share Value customers on existing 15GB and higher plans. Verizon Wireless and Sprint then followed up with competing plans of their own. Now, Sprint is looking to kick some dirt in AT&T and Verizon Wireless’ eyes with a new promotion. The company is introducing a new “Cut Your Bill in Half” promotion that will dramatically reduce the price of your wireless plan if you leave AT&T or Verizon Wireless. Starting on Friday, AT&T...

When Motorola introduced the Moto X last year, the company was owned by Google. In our hands-on review of the first-generation Moto X, we pointed out that the collaboration between Motorola and Android engineers led to an incredibly sleek device and a good user experience. Although the first-generation Moto X didn’t have quite as impressive hardware specifications as its high-end competitors at the time, the phone still performed very well. What’s more, the Moto X also included a number of unique extras, like touchless controls that worked exceptionally well. Fast forward to today,... Read more...

We all want more from our smartphones. Whether it’s more screen real estate, more battery life, a better camera, or more storage for pictures, videos, and games, it seems there’s always something we could use more of from our phones. Manufacturers are constantly striving to deliver the best device, touting the areas in which they’ve provided “more.” HTC designed its One Max with demanding users in mind. This smartphone boasts “more screen size, more camera, more everything” according to the company. With its 5.9-inch screen and 3300mAh battery, the One... Read more...

We're not trying to pick on Verizon Wireless today (really, we're not), but we can't help it if the wireless carrier insists on putting targets on its back. The latest bit of news from Big Red is that it's getting rid of early upgrade eligibility and requiring that its subscribers ride out the entire length of their contracts before getting a new phone at a discounted rate. Previously VZW subscribers would be eligible to upgrade at a reduced rate after 20 months. That's still an eternity with how fast the smartphone market evolves, but it was certainly nice to have the option of purchasing something... Read more...
Verizon Wireless rolled out a couple of new basic pre-paid plans for chatter bugs on a budget, and included in both tiers is unlimited data. The first is a $35 plan that buys you 500 monthly minutes of talk time and unlimited text and data. If you go over the allotted minutes, you're charged 25 cents for each one thereafter. Or you can plan ahead and pony up for the $50/month plan, which offers unlimited minutes too. Neither of these plans require a service agreement, and at a glance, they seem to be killer responses to T-Mobile's new pricing plans. So, what's the catch? Verizon's new plans only... Read more...

Sharing photos with one's friends and family is a common, everyday occurrence. Instagram has gained over 100 million photo sharing users in just two years, and this is just one of many outlets people use to share photos with the people they love. While sharing pictures taken with your smartphone is easy and convenient since you can upload and share while on the go, the picture quality you get from a smartphone isn't quite on the same level as a standalone digital camera, with a larger sensor and better optics. Connected cameras such as the Samsung Galaxy Camera promise the best of both worlds for... Read more...
