There’s been a lot of excitement surrounding LG’s flagship device, the G4. Now, according to a press image, its entirely possible that we could see a June 4 launch on Verizon Wireless.
The mobile carriers always seem to be in a little bit of hot water don’t they? Maybe it’s because they are always playing games with billing, throttling, and anything else shady they can think of.
This time around it’s a practice called “cramming” which is when customers are billed for third-party services they didn’t request. In most cases, it resulted in a $10 monthly charge in which Verizon and Sprint declined to offer refunds. According to the Federal Communications Commission, both carriers received roughly 30% of the charges.
Now that summer is almost here, it’s time to start thinking about what Motorola has in store. They usually announce their products in the late summer to early fall. Of course, we know there will be a new Moto X and a new Moto 360, but let’s not forget about the Verizon exclusive DROIDs. Last year, Verizon chose to go with one DROID, the DROID Turbo. In previous years, they did offer multiple models, and it looks like they might adopt that strategy again this year.
Verizon Wireless and Lyft have partnered up in a multi-tiered fashion that will benefit Verizon customers and both Lyft passengers and drivers.

Earlier today, Verizon Wireless announced that it will start selling HTC’s flagship smartphone of 2015, the One (M9), in store and online starting Friday, April 10, with pre-orders kicking off on Wednesday, April 1.

The Moto E is no kids toy either as it sports a 4.5-inch qHD (960 x 540) display, a quad-core Snapdragon 410, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage, microSD for up to an additional 32 GB of extra storage, 5 MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 2,390 mAh battery, and Android 5.0.2 Lollipop right out of the box. Plus, it’s compatible with Big Red’s fast 4G LTE network. You simply cannot go wrong.
Here we have Verizon announcing that the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime handset will become available online from February 26th and in Verizon Wireless Stores from March 5th. This entry-level smartphone will available for $29 with a two-year contract or $8 per month for eligible customers on Verizon Edge.
The Google Nexus 6 smartphone has been available for over two months through carriers like T-Mobile, Sprint and AT&T. However, the nation’s largest carrier, Verizon Wireless has been somewhat absent from the action. It seems like that could change over the coming weeks, with the smartphone going up on the carrier’s website with a “coming soon” sign. Read more
Verizon is notorious for being the slowest for releasing updates, but today they are the fastest, at least in the U.S. The Verizon Galaxy S 5 is receiving Android 5.0 Lollipop right now.

TouchWiz has a brighter look and feel with bold colors and fluid animation.
