Mint SIM vs. Project Fi: Which is better for you?

It’s Mint SIM vs. Project Fi in this head-to-head comparison.

Project Fi vs. Sprint: Which should you buy?

It’s Sprint vs. Project Fi in this head-to-head comparison.

Sprint and Project Fi are both network providers, but have very different strategies and sets of operations.

Project Fi’s mysterious mid-tier phone rumored to be the Moto X4

Upcoming Motorola mid-tier phone could be the first non-Google phone in Project Fi’s roster.

Late last week, Google said that one of its partners would launch a mid-tier device on Project Fi. According to seasoned leaker Evan Blass at VentureBeat, that partner is Motorola, and the device in question is the Moto X4.

There’s not a whole lot of information regarding Motorola’s upcoming mid-range phone, but a leaked roadmap from earlier this year suggests a dual  [Read More…]

An affordable Project Fi-compatible phone is coming later this year

Google’s experimental wireless service, Project Fi hasn’t been around for long, so naturally it comes with its fair share of limitations. Perhaps the most important one is that Google offers only a handful of Project Fi-compatible devices including the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6. But what about folks who can’t […]

Project Fi to soon support new ‘mid-tier’ phone from a Google partner

We could see an expansion of device compatibility on Project Fi soon.

One of the only big frustrations with Project Fi is its limited device selection, which requires that you purchase or bring your own Pixel XL, Pixel, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X or Nexus 6 to the service. And even though it kind of works in unlocked phones, Project Fi has never explicitly supported any other phones.

But then, there was this Twitter response to some complaints about not  [Read More…]
