    There are two versions of the LG G3: one that sports 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, and one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. We've already seen how the US carrier models will look like -- and that Sprint will apparently have no intrusive branding on the device -- but we had no information on which version the network operators will go for. Apparently, the Sprint LG G3 will be the highest end version, according to recent leaks. The carrier will start taking pre-orders on July 11, with the phone shipping on July 18, and, the screenshots below seem to confirm the 3GB of RAM / ...

    The LG G3 did well in our review, being one of the 2014 Android flagships to want, together with the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5, and Sony Xperia Z2. However, our review was based on opinions formed while using a South Korean version of the device, with an American carrier unit not being available. That being said, thanks to @evleaks, we're seeing all (major) four US carrier models being leaked in press renders, as seen above. From left to right, we're seeing the upcoming Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile versions. Interestingly, of all four devices, only Sprint version (as ...

    It wasn't long after LG formally announced the G3 that carriers were chiming in with news of their interest in offering the smartphone for sale; within hours of launch, we had heard from all four big players in the US. But at the time, there just wasn't a lot of info about how that availability would manifest – they were talking plans for a summer release, but that's about as good as we got. Well, with summer now here, we're starting to lean about those specifics; T-Mobile announced the start to pre-orders this past Monday, with the phone actually landing on July 16. Now it's Sprint's ...

    The Galaxy S5 Active launched for AT&T late last month, and while we've gone hands-on to bring you a review of that model, we've been interested in learning about increased availability for the phone; would it go up for sale internationally? What about on other North American carriers? Well, at a Sprint press event this morning, the company announced that it would start carrying the Galaxy S5 Sport, “a smartphone built for the athletic lifestyle.” But is this the GS5 Active, or something else altogether? The GS5 Sport doesn't look quite like the GS5 Active, nor does it match the ...

    The Android 4.4.4 update has just been made official, though Android 4.4.3 remains young -- it only came out last week, after all. The latest device to be updated to this no-longer-newest version of Android is Sprint's Motorola Moto X. The features in Android 4.4.3, along with a couple extra Motorola goodies, have all made their way to the device in the Sprint Moto X Android 4.4.3 update. First and foremost are the Android 4.4.3 changes, which are mainly bug fixes for stability, security, and other non-user-facing areas. The refreshed look in the Dialer app has been brought over to the ...

    T-Mobile's Uncarrier 5.0 event has seen its topic speculated about many times, but with talk of a possible buyout of T-Mobile by Sprint floating around, the possibility that this event will be to announce plans of this purchase are increasing. If "inside sources" of TK Tech News are to be trusted, new "Framily" plans from this merged company (referred to as SoftBank USA) have been exposed. Reportedly, offerings would start at $60 for unlimited talk, text, and data, with 5GB of tethering. This comes with T-Mobile's previously announced international data roaming, and text messaging to ...

    After multiple reports of a planned merger between Sprint and T-Mobile USA, more alleged details have reportedly emerged. The merger deal has been allegedly accepted, with the combined company to be named SoftBank USA -- meaning, the T-Mobile and Sprint monikers would be history. The CEO of the new company would be the current T-Mobile USA chief, John Legere. Dan Hesse, Sprint's CEO, would step down from his current position, though he would remain a part of the SoftBank board. Also scrapped would be the MetroPCS, Virgin Mobile, and Boost Mobile prepaid brands, all rolled in to one ...

    iOS 8 is here –in Beta form, at least– and (surprise, surprise) we've got some opinions. For the last Weekly podcast to begin with a "0," we bring in the big guns to discuss Apple's new platform: a four-man team that includes our resident iOS experts, one of whom joins in from the blazing heat of a car baking in the North Carolina sun just to tell us his take on the iPhone 6 and how it will/won't/might end up being a phablet. Of course we don't stop with Apple: a panoply of mobile devices, from the LG G3 to the Galaxy S5 Active to the Motorola X+1, awaits our speculation, adulation, ...

    If we're to believe the latest reports, the long-rumored T-Mobile and Sprint deal could soon become a reality. To hear it told, the carriers are essentially committed to going through with a deal that would merge the companies, and all that's left is to negotiate a few of the finer specifics (minor stuff, like how many billions of dollars T-Mobile is worth). But let's assume for a moment that all this is accurate, and the carriers will eventually merge. What then? Who would head up this new, bigger network, large enough to compete head-to-head with Verizon and AT&T? Both Sprint and ...

    Rumors of a possible acquisition of T-Mobile US by Sprint aren't about to fade soon, it seems. A new report out of The Wall Street Journal tells us that the two companies may be nearing a deal, where Sprint would purchase the "Uncarrier" early this summer. Pricing details from the WSJ haven't been too conclusive -- the report initially stated the sale price as $50 billion, but an apparently revised version lists it as $32 billion in one spot and $50 billion in another. We are not certain what to expect in terms of the total price, as a result, but the one thing the source has been ...

    Smartphone users in the United States are quite familiar with the big four carriers by now, and while the presence of these companies can sometimes feel like an anchor in an otherwise turbulent industry, we've seen more than a few efforts to shake things up and change the pecking order a little. Those have included plans like AT&T's failed attempt to purchase T-Mobile a few years back. More recently, we've been looking at the possibility of Sprint and T-Mobile merging, and despite recent comments from the CEO of T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom, claiming that no sale was in the ...

    LG's G3 announcement earlier this week helped clear up one confusing detail that plagued rumors surrounding the phone in the weeks leading up to its launch, as we got our explanation for why the handset's reported RAM capacity seemed to be so inconsistent: we're getting two versions of the G3, one with 2GB RAM and one with 3GB. In fact, the differences extend beyond system memory, as the 2GB model also has just 16GB internal storage and is tipped to arrive with a slightly slower 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 than the 2.5GHz component on the 3GB RAM, 32GB flash G3. But even with this now ...

    The copper gold Samsung Galaxy S 5 for Verizon has been recently leaked, and, if you think the above phone(s) are just a rehash, the signal and carrier indicators should clear it all up (alongside the headline and the title of today's leak). We're looking at the gold Galaxy S5 for both AT&T and Sprint, as leaked by @evleaks. It's not necessarily about the differences (as there are really none -- inside or outside), but a confirmation of the copper gold Galaxy S5 coming to two more US carriers. When? There are no availability nor pricing details, so we'll have to wait for another leak ...

    Motorola's Moto X is beginning to enter its twilight years (for a smartphone, at least), having launched last August. While we're definitely looking forward to a sequel, Motorola doesn't seem content letting this model languish in its old age, and appears ready to keep introducing new options. Over the weekend we noticed a slight tweak to the company's Moto Maker offerings, switching walnut out for rosewood among the phone's natural finish options, and also heard rumors about a forthcoming 64GB variant. That 64GB model still isn't showing up on Motorola's own site, but today we pick up ...
