    The LG G5 was an interesting phone from the outside.

And if that's what we thought, boy, imagine what consumers saw in it. It's with that in mind that the chaebol has made ...

    It's tough being a smaller virtual network operator these days, especially when you see all the growth get sucked up, monopolized by T-Mobile's own MetroPCS.

    President Obama dropped his BlackBerry — somewhat against his will (and to his liking) — and so will plenty of Capitol Hill staffers.

    As media that cover mobile tech, we have a ton of review devices, especially of the Android ilk. And when we feel like shouting something to our daily driver across the room, it seems that every stinkin' phone we own wants to address us in some way.

    Sprint was the first to be out and about with a monthly version of Amazon Prime before Amazon itself put it out there.

    Well, that didn’t take long. A mere 24 hours after putting its unlocked Android smartphone-cherishing fans stateside out of their misery, Samsung just kicked off the very first SM-G930U deal.
