If you’ve been toying with the idea of ordering the refined HTC One M9 from Verizon, here’s a little incentive to follow through with the notion. HTC and Verizon have teamed up to offer a $100 Google Play Store credit to customers who order the HTC One M9 from the carrier. Read more
Motorola first announced the update was coming soon, but it looks like Verizon is rolling out the 5.1 Lollipop update tomorrow to all. Verizon told Droid Life that the “actual push will begin tomorrow afternoon.” Do not expect to receive it right away as with most updates it rolls out in phases.
One would expect that the carriers in the United States pay their chief executive officers by performance. By that assumption, the total compensation for Lowell McAdam, Randall Stephenson, Marcelo Claure, and John Legere would be in order of their employers’ position in the market. That, however, is not the case. The total compensation for each CEO really varies because each company has a different set of incentives on top of base salaries.
So who is the highest paid leader among carriers in the United States? Hit the break to find out.
The longstanding relationship between Verizon and Motorola received new life in 2014 when the two released the DROID Turbo. The device, which was available exclusively to Big Red’s customers, had everything that a spec-obsessed consumer could want right down to long battery life. And this year Motorola will produce another device for Verizon being referred to internally as ‘Kinzie’.
Motorola’s David Schuster took to Google+ again to announce that Android 5.1 soak tests are officially rolling out for the Moto X (2014) and Moto G (2013) with LTE in the US. We earlier saw unofficial leaks of a Moto X (2014) running Android 5.1 on Verizon’s network.
Motorola has begun launching the Moto X (2nd Gen) Android 5.1 soak test on Verizon, according to an Android Police tipster. This comes after the Lenovo-owned company yesterday announced a final release for the Moto X Pure Edition.
A new report from an Android Central tipster says that Lollipop soak tests invites are going out for the Droid Turbo on Verizon. We’ve heard plenty of rumors in the past claiming that Lollipop is in the works for the Droid Turbo. And now it’s finally upon us.
If all goes will with the soak test, DROID Turbo owners should begin seeing the official update not too long from now.

Some new devices from HTC showed up in the FCC database apparently heading to Verizon. According to the filings, both devices are listed as smartphones and they appear to have support for Verizon’s CDMA and LTE bands. The lack of support for 802.11ac Wi-Fi may point to them being budget-oriented devices. Read more
When LG rolled out the Lollipop update for their then flagship smartphone, the LG G3, they staked a claim as being one of the first to get Lollipop out to their devices. We all know manufacturers will roll out an update to a small market to make claims like this. Nevertheless, it is usually a decent sign of a commitment to providing the latest version of Android for a given device even if users have to wait a bit longer for kinks to be worked out and carriers to give their blessing. At the time, as a relatively new owner of an LG G3, I was looking forward to seeing what would happen with my device. Fast forward half a year later and Verizon finally pushed out the Lollipop update. That was the beginning of the transition for my “dream” phone to a nightmare and now signs point to Verizon not doing anything to fix the problems they have wrought. Read more
Third-party sellers on Amazon have brought the One M9+ and E9+ to the US, despite HTC making it clear that it wouldn’t launch the two devices outside of Asia, which could contribute to the company’s increasingly poor earnings.
