When is the best time to sell your phone?

The sooner, the better.

We’re quickly approaching that time of year where smartphone manufacturers all drop their top-of-the-line flagships almost simultaneously — we’re eagerly awaiting Samsung’s Galaxy Note 9 announcement on August 9th, along with what we suspect is the Moto Z3 the week prior, and a number of other phones from the Pixel 3 to the LG V40.

If you’re the type to buy the latest flagship as soon as it drops, you’re probably going to want  [Read More…]

The BlackBerry KEY2 is in a market with no competitors — but is that enough to make it sell?

It’s the only modern smartphone with a hardware keyboard, but I’m not sure that’s enough.

I’ve been using my BlackBerry KEY2 for about a week and a half now, and I haven’t been doing so begrudgingly or out of any sort of obligation — I’ve continued to carry it by choice. I’m not here to talk about my personal takes on the KEY2 as a device — that’ll come later in a specific review, and Daniel wrote  [Read More…]

Want to sell your phone? Here’s what to do during and after the sale

The Samsung Galaxy S9, LG G7 ThinQ, HTC U12+, and OnePlus 6 are all beautiful new devices that tempt customers to open up their wallets. Rightfully so — they’re all great! But if this is a replacement or upgrade, you’ll likely have to figure out what to so with the current one.

What to do? Throw it in a drawer? Make it a Wi-Fi only phone? Give it to the kids? Or, do you sell your phone?

If you’re in the market for  [Read More…]

U.S. carriers charge you exorbitantly every month, and still sell your information — should we expect something different?

At some point we should expect a reduction in the cost of service in exchange for this data.

With pressure from T-Mobile and some prepaid offerings, U.S. carriers have consistently upped their data offerings in the past few years to provide a pretty good value for your money — that is, compared to the vastly expensive per-gigabyte pricing we had before. Now, despite having lots of unlimited plan options, people spend more per month on cell service  [Read More…]

Remember that mobile security companies only want to sell you something

A company who wants your money just might say anything to get it.

Did you hear that like every Android phone ever made is broken because the companies that made them are lying and not really sending you security patches when they say they are sending you one? Chances are you did, because the whole silly mess was engineered solely so you would hear about it. I’ll go a step further and say the entire study only  [Read More…]

Own a Samsung phone and want to upgrade to the Galaxy S9? Here’s what to do.

We’re just a few short days away from the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9, and although we’re expecting it to look a lot like the Galaxy S8, there’s still a lot to be excited about.

Verizon won’t sell the Mate 10 Pro or any other Huawei phones

The final nail in the coffin.

What the heck happened to the Huawei Mate 10 Pro? It was supposed to be the first Huawei device that’d be available through a U.S. carrier, but these plans were quickly shut down when AT&T officially stepped away from the deal. A report came out shortly after this indicating that Verizon would do something similar, and now it appears that’s exactly what happened.

According to sources that spoke with Bloomberg, Verizon  [Read More…]

AT&T reportedly steps away from deal to sell Huawei phones

This is a big setback for Huawei’s plans to expand in the U.S.

Strong rumors have swirled for weeks that AT&T would soon start to carry and distribute high-end Huawei phones, marking a big move for the Chinese manufacturer as it tries to get a strong foothold in the U.S. market. But at CES 2018, as Huawei and its sub-brand Honor both make announcements about international releases of their phones, Wall Street Journal is reporting that AT&T has backed  [Read More…]

Amazon will once again sell Chromecast and Apple TV

Is Amazon’s dispute with Google finally coming to an end?

Google Chromecast and Apple TV are two of the most popular ways to stream online content to your TV, but if you tried searching for these gadgets on Amazon, you wouldn’t have any idea that they even existed.
