Here's a great deal on a great phone.
In our comparison between the LG V20 and Huawei Mate 9, I said both phones are fairly comparable in terms of performance, while the V20 has the edge in the camera department and the Mate 9 tops the battery tests. But my conclusion was that, if you are buying the phone outright, the $599.99 Mate 9 is the way to go, since the V20 costs around $200 more.
'Mercury' is coming soon! Here's how to follow along with the big announcement!
I won't lie: I'm pretty jazzed for the BlackBerry 'Mercury', the latest phone from BlackBerry Mobile that promises to combine a classic hardware with modern Android conveniences.
All the news that's fit to fake.
You'd have to insert your head fairly deep in the sand these days to avoid the term "fake news." It's seemingly everywhere, the notion that some media outlets either distort or invent the truth for their own gain. Recently, this has pertained mainly to politics, but the notion of artifice in our daily news consumption is not a new one — especially if you're a...
Android 7.0 Nougat is rolling out to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge on America's second-biggest carrier.
After T-Mobile, it is now AT&T's turn to roll out Android 7.0 Nougat to the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Last year's most popular flagship is also one of the last to get updated to the not-exactly-the-latest-but-better-than-nothing version of Android, after a lengthy beta period that began in late...
Two completely different phones with very similar outcomes.
I have a problem. See, there are two phones in front of me, and they're both very good. I've literally been switching between them every day to get a sense of their strengths and weaknesses, and have been assiduously noting the differences to get a sense of what a large "phablet" flagship should and shouldn't do.
These two phones are...
Sprint's own chart undermines its latest promotion, which shows the real strength of T-Mobile right now.
I'm Canadian; I have no skin in this game. Up here, we pay far more than anyone in the U.S. for far less. In Canada, the closest we come to 'unlimited' is bottomless breadsticks at Olive Garden.
We're now in this strange situation where T-Mobile is setting the tone and pace for the rest...
AT&T is matching its competitors by opening up unlimited data to everyone.
AT&T has decided to throw up its proverbial hands after a week of intense competition in the mobile space, saying that as of February 17 its unlimited plan, which is currently only available to DirecTV customers, will be expanded to all postpaid customers.
Starting tomorrow, AT&T1 will launch a new AT...
The Google Pixel returns to Canada.
It took a few months, but the most striking colo(u)r of the Google Pixel is now available in Canada.
Available for pre-order at Rogers, the country's largest carrier, the 'Really Blue' Google Pixel costs the same as its black and white counterparts — $199 on a 2-year Premium+ Share Everything plan and $899 outright — but Google is throwing in a $100 Google...
Pokémon Go has completely changed the way you customize your avatar in Gen 2. Here's what you need to know.
Along with many, many improvements, upgrades and changes to Pokémon Go in version 0.57.2, also known as Gen 2, the game has overhauled avatar customization with a new UI, in addition to a number of new styles and clothing options.
Here's everything you need to know about the new avatar...
Hey Alexa, get me the operator!
The Wall Street Journal is reporting that both Google and Amazon are looking into ways to add phone call functionality — remember that? — to the Home and Echo, respectively.
The tech giants could launch the feature this year, the people said -- but the effort is hung up over concerns about privacy, telecom regulations and emergency services. And they are aware...
Don't let GPS errors stop you from playing Pokémon Go!
Pokémon Go is everywhere, and that's great for Android gamers around the world. But if you're getting a "GPS signal not found" error when you launch the game, here's how to fix it!
T-Mobile has a plan to keep its LTE speed crown, and it involves Wi-Fi (sort of).
During its fourth quarter earnings call this week, T-Mobile's CTO Neville Ray brought up something that the company has been working on since 2015: LTA-U, which stands for Unlicensed.
Though T-Mobile is ostensibly tied with Verizon for best network in the U.S., beating it in speed in many markets while trailing...
An update to the Nest app for Android makes some big improvements to notifications using machine learning.
It sounds like a bad joke, but thanks to advancements in machine learning, Nest is now able to automatically add "activity zones" for doors, something that had to be done manually before now.
The company announced the software update for its Nest Cam line, which includes the excellent...
Apple is reportedly adding Qi wireless charging to its next iPhone. You may not care, but your next phone may benefit.
You'll be hearing a lot about wireless charging in the next few weeks, and that's because Apple just joined the Wireless Power Consortium, a group of like-minded companies with the goal of furthering a single standard for charging devices sans wires.
But Apple has taken its...
T-Mobile has seen Verizon's unlimited, and raised it unlimited and one.
When T-Mobile introduced its T-Mobile One plan last year, the internet was divided between people who thought the ostensibly unlimited data was a courageous move for a cash-strapped carrier with a patchy LTE network and those who saw it for a violation of the tenets of net neutrality.
The G6 will be more reliable than any LG phone to date, promising multiple checks on both the hardware and software.
The LG G6 will be reliable. That's the message the company wants to convey in a teaser provided to Android Central this week. The placard, similar in style to others released to various publications, asks, "Reliability. Check, Check Check."

A blue exclusive for the red carrier in Canada.
Google and Rogers have co-announced that they are bringing the 'Really Blue' Google Pixel — the one that everyone wants and hasn't been able to buy due to its limited inventory — to Canada as a carrier exclusive.
The limited edition version was released alongside the black and white variants in October, but it's been difficult to find — more...
Instant Tethering is coming to save your tablet's internet.
Google has just turned on a feature called Instant Tethering, allowing Nexus and Pixel phones and tablets to share internet connections automatically, as long as they are connected to the same Google profile.
So long, edge name. We hardly knew you.
Samsung won't be releasing a Galaxy S8 edge like it did the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S7 variants. Instead, both the smaller and larger versions of the upcoming flagship will have curved displays, according to a leak from Evan Blass.
