Buying a new phone is not always as easy as it seems, especially if you have your eyes on one of the most anticipated devices of the year. When demand is higher than supply, stock can dry up in a matter of days which usually means another few weeks of waiting.

Great news is that you can secure a unit for yourself today as AT&T and Verizon, are now accepting pre-orders for the latest Samsung Galaxy Note 4 phone-tablet hybrid. T-Mobile will do it on September 24, and Sprint on September 26

Let’s compare offers on the Apple’s latest gadgets.
LG G3 Vigor coming to Sprint this Friday and AT&T later this year as a cheaper alternative to top-end LG G3
Remember a certain LG G3 Vigor that we mentioned last month? Believed to be US-bound version of the LG G3 S / Beat, the phone was supposed to be released by Sprint in August, according to a leaked document. It appears, however, that the predicted launch date was a bit off, because we’re now well into September and the G Vigor is still unavailable. Don’t lose hope, though. The phone is coming to Sprint this Friday and AT&T later this year as a cheaper alternative to top-end LG G3.
It’s widely known fact that it can be difficult for elderly people to deal with the latest technology achievements like smartphones, if the old blocky traditional cells weren’t already too complicated.

To achieve that the company teamed up with Samsung, and now they’re announcing the Samsung Touch 3, the Android based smartphone targeting at senior users.
As we have been saying the other day, the rebranded Motorola’s Droid RAZR M with a new name Motorola Luge was planned to be debuted on August 28th and it did. Previously, when the rumors spread about a possible new phone from Motorola, the brows were raised in expectation of something new and spectacular, since mobile world is surprised every year by devices that are both new and amped up with new specs. However, the mystery curtain was drawn apart and a slight “hmm” was heard. And it is all because Verizon launched a smartphone that was just merely renamed. Few touches were added to the renamed Motorola Luge, but as it appears, they were not that significant as expected.
When yesterday we reported about the announcement of the Sharp Aquos Crystal and Sprint’s upcoming “Take the edge off” event in New York, we had a feeling that the two were somehow connected.

The phone also will be coming to Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile later this year.
Smartphone makers have been releasing miniature versions of their flagship phones for quite some time and by now we are accustomed to such practice. Samsung went even further and is offering several models of the Galaxy S5 each one focusing on a different feature, just like it did last year with the Galaxy S4. What we haven’s so far is a variant of a flagship phone running a different operating system. Until today. A few hours ago HTC announced Windows Phone version of the HTC One M8 for Verizon and the phone is now available at carrier stores.
It’s very unlikely that the fact of carrying a smartphone in the pocket would stop people from going about their business, but it goes without saying that in certain cases consequences for the phone may be sorry. Smartphones are of a delicate nature and usually don’t do well when exposed to extreme conditions for example being dropped on a hard surface or taking a plunge in the pool. Of course, there are a few exceptions and the new Kyocera Hydro Life for T-Mobile is one of them. The phone is now on sale from Walmart at price $124.99 without a contract.

The LG G Vista didn’t receive as much attention prior to its release as the flagship G3, but it did get mentioned a few times in the recent leaks. Earlier today, the phone was quietly launched by Verizon and is now available for order through carrier’s web store. If you prefer to pick up the device personally, it should arrive at brick and mortar stores shortly.
What’s your first association when you hear “budget” smartphone? For many users the term has a negative connotation as it implies not only low price but also unattractive design, poor performance and, more generally, disappointing experience. That might have been true a few years ago, but now even an affordable phone can have quite a lot to offer. The latest example of great price to specs ratio is the HTC Desire 610 for AT&T which is now available at carrier’s stores.
Remember that day in June when Amazon made official its first smartphone called the Fire Phone? The company promised that the device would make it to the stores on July 25th and it sure did – yesterday the Fire Phone went on sale at AT&T stores and Amazon.

Rumors regarding the HTC One Remix have been making rounds since mid-May but starting today we won’t be hearing unconfirmed information anymore.

Prefer monthly payments? No problem, the One Remix is also available with Verizon Edge payment plan.
That’s something we didn’t expect. The LG G3 was scheduled to go on sale on July 18th on Sprint network but guess what? The carrier is already offering the device through its stores. And we are not talking about pre-orders here. You can actually purchase the phone a week before its official release. Not only that, but Sprint is also throwing in a nice bonus in the form of a $150 American Express gift card for users who go for Sprint Easy Pay option.
T-Mobile revealed its plans to carry the Nokia Lumia 635 immediately after the phone was announced at Build in early April. However, the carrier didn’t say when it would happen, so we waited, we saw the handset pay a visit to the FCC and then we waited some more. Finally today the Magenta network made good on its promise and added Nokia Lumia 635 Windows Phone 8.1 to its portfolio. The device is now for sale from carrier stores.
We have some good news for LG fans! A message from T-Mobile went out with information that they are now approving pre-orders for their version of the LG G3. The LG G3 is without a doubt a worthy successor of the last year’s flagship smartphone – the LG G2, which brought to the table innovative design including lack of physical buttons on edges and volume rocker and power button located on the back of the handset.
Staying fit is not always an easy task. Sprint knows that and is willing to give you all the support you need including a new fitness-themed version of the Galaxy S5. Yes, another variant of Samsung’s flagship smartphone is on its way. Called the Galaxy S5 Sport, the phone was just announced by Sprint and is the carrier’s launch device for its new Fit Live health tracking initiative.

Luckily for us, anxious souls, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was a good sport and revealed all the details we love to hear, from specs to pricing and availability.
