Sprint has today published details of an update it’s now rolling out to all its carrier-branded variants of the LG G2 currently situated in the United States. Unfortunately, the upgrade doesn’t bring much to the table in terms of new features, but it does include a handful of bug fixes, stability improvements and speed optimizations.
Hit the break for the full changelog.
When HTC announced their new EYE Experience, a bundle of improvements to their camera features, they indicated a variety of devices would receive the update over the coming months. Owners of the unlocked version of the HTC One (M8) were probably glad to see they were near the top of the line when the update started rolling out last week along with an update to Android 4.4.4. Now owners of the device on the T-Mobile network will be joining in on the fun as the carrier has given their technical approval for the update.
Users can expect to see an OTA update appear on their devices starting as soon as Tuesday, October 21st. This was announced by Mo Versi, HTC’s vice president for Product Management, via a tweet earlier today.
The Samsung Galaxy Mega 2 has made its appearance in Thailand and is now set to hit American shores, launching on AT&T later this week. The budget phablet features a 6-inch 720p (1280 x 720) screen, 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.5GB of RAM, a quad-core processor and a 2800mAh battery. On the software side of things it runs Android 4.4 and features Samsung’s popular dual-window feature with the added ability to run two instances of the same app simultaneously. The phone goes for $149.99 with a new two-year contract or $474.99 outright. Any AT&T subscribers out there interested in picking one of these up on the 24th? Let us know in the comments below.
In less than nine days, Motorola will be unveiling another handset to put on the market. This one, however, is expected to be a carrier exclusive. We are talking about the DROID Turbo that is heading straight to Verizon. A few images were found within the coding for the Verizon’s page teasing the device. It shows the device in black and in red. Regardless of the back panel color, the front remains black.

If you’re looking to upgrade soon and you’re on Verizon, we have just the deal for you.
For a device that is going to be very limited at launch, the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is going to be available in a lot of places. We already know it will be available through T-Mobile, and we’re pretty sure AT&T and US Cellular will be getting it as well, but according to a new FCC filing, it seems that Sprint will be getting Edge-y as well.
When Beats Music finally launched their own streaming music service, playing off the name recognition of their line of headphones, AT&T managed to strike a special deal for their customers. AT&T subscribers were able to get the Beats Music service for a 90-day free trial, much longer than the standard 2-week trial period. In addition, AT&T subscribers could buy a Beats Music subscription for $14.99 per month, $5 more than the normal price, but could share their subscription with other users and devices. This special package is no longer available to AT&T customers although they can still order the standard $9.99 per month Beats Music service.
Starting October 16th, Verizon will increase the number of monthly payments Edge customers must make from 20 to 24 months in order to upgrade to a new device.
ASUS, AT&T, and Intel sent out a presser this morning letting us know that the PadFone X will be available on AT&T GoPhone for $199. That means no contract or commitments.
