The $199 Honor 5X will soon be available in 590 Best Buy stores

honor 5x best buyThe Honor 5X was an incredible deal when it launched, and it still offers a pretty compelling phone for just $199. One of the biggest problems it’s faced has been its lack of a physical presence in brick and mortar stores, so the only way someone could buy it was through online retailers.

For most phones, that’s not terrible, since it saves money on shipping and distribution. But for a phone that’s gotten as much traction as the 5X, it only makes sense to push into actual stores besides Amazon and Newegg, and that’s what Honor is doing thanks to a new partnership with Best Buy.

LG G4 is AT&T’s first Android-powered WiFi calling device

lg_g4_angled_TACurrently the only devices capable of WiFi calling on AT&T’s network are iPhones. Most newer iPhones are able to take advantage of the feature, bypassing AT&T’s network to make phone calls.

It’s about time the OnePlus 3 makes the company competitive

Over the last two years, we’ve seen highly confusing things happen at OnePlus. The company built by Pete Lau and Carl Pei started off by only accepting purchases for the OnePlus One if you had an invite. That awful invite system stuck around for when the OnePlus 2 was released, and there was even the label of “flagship killer” for it. Between not being able to buy the OnePlus 2 properly and its specifications falling short of the competition, it was hard to take OnePlus seriously in 2015.

OnePlus launched the OnePlus 3 as its latest flagship today. For all the brutally honest words regarding OnePlus and its phones I’ve had, I’ll openly admit I’m impressed by the OnePlus 3. It has a device everyone loved on another company’s previous flagship and the specifications are actually up there with who OnePlus wants to compete against. The OnePlus 3 should make OnePlus a serious player in the mobile industry.
