Last week, Andy Rubin, a founding father of Android and now CEO of Essential, held an “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) session over on Reddit. Rubin answered some of our questions about Essential and the Essential PH-1 cell phone. Here’s what we learned in a nutshell.
Ookla, the network speed test service, has released its 2017 US Market Report. These tests comprise approximately 3 million devices, and the data now shows T-Mobile as the quickest US cellular provider.
America’s largest carrier by subscriber numbers, Verizon, has announced a number of changes to it’s unlimited plans. These changes mean the carrier now offers two unlimited plans, Go Unlimited and Beyond Unlimited, with the former plan costing $5 less a month than before.
Google has been teasing Android O for some time (even without a name), but the name (and statue) was finally unveiled some days back as Android Oreo. The update’s system image files were posted last week when the update began rolling out over-the-air to Pixel and select Nexus devices enrolled in the Android Beta Program. If this isn’t you, but you own a Pixel or Pixel XL, we have good news for you!
ASUS is finally releasing the ZenFone AR onto the Verizon network, only a handful of days before we are expecting a slew of new ZenFone devices. The new device for the Verizon network is the ASUS ZenFone AR and it is already showing on the carrier’s website.
The first member of Motorola’s premium Z2 line of smartphones for 2017 is the Moto Z2 Play. This premium mid-range device was announced a few weeks ago as the official successor to last year’s sturdy and long-lasting Moto Z Play. This year’s model looks to be no endurance champ, but rather good in other important areas. It will look to compete against competitively priced rivals in the space such as the OnePlus 5 and others now that it’s on the market.
Two U.S. carriers, Verizon and Sprint, have been going at it over the last several months. For the most part, Verizon has come out on top, but now, Sprint is fighting back with a crazy new offering for customers who make the switch.
In recent times, Verizon has been making giant strides in offering great value with their prepaid options. They are back again, this time with amazing offers on prepaid plans. Revised offers from Verizon will obviously put a smile on the faces of consumers as all existing plans were altered to benefit the customer.
