Ready to play a new game? It’s called “Who is going to merge with Verizon?” Here’s how you play. Take the following sentence, “Verizon is going to merge with _____________. Fill in the blank with the name of a well known company. Use your common sense and stick to wireless content providers and distributors, large media firms and communications companies. Be smart. Verizon isn’t going to buy Dairy Queen. Some of the names that Wall Street has bandied about recently include Disney, Comcast, Charter and CBS.

Last week, Verizon announced that it lost 289,000 postpaid phone subscribers …

$100 nets you a big screen and a fingerprint scanner if you get the new LG Harmony on Cricket

$100 phones just get nicer with every passing year. If you look back a year or two ago, the choices in this price range were mostly rare and borderline offensive to anyone after a remotely decent user experience. Not any longer. Today, a Benjamin gets you something like the new LG Harmony, which just launched on Cricket.

The phone has a simple plastic build with metal accents, but isn’t ugly in any way. More importantly, it has a fairly big 5.3-inch display with a 720p resolution that’s not as sharp as 1080p, but still quite serviceable. There are an 8MP rear camera, …

OnePlus teases big Dash Charge announcement tomorrow

A tweet from OnePlus hints that the company will be making a big announcement tomorrow related to its Dash Charge rapid charging system. With Dash Charge, found on the OnePlus 3 and OnePlus 3T, you can have your battery charged enough to last a full day after just 30-minutes. In other words, the 3000mAh battery on the OnePlus 3 and the 3400mAh battery on the OnePlus 3T will go from 0% to 63% in about the same time you can watch an episode (including commercials) of Schitt’s Creek.

One tweet disseminated by the upstart smartphone manufacturer asks, “What should we Dash Charge next?” That …

Leaked S8 and S8+ size comparisons show the S8+ to still be one very big phone

If you didn’t get a good glimpse of exactly how big will the Galaxy S8 and S8+ be compared to their major rivals in our homebrew renders yesterday, a renowned leakster has sized them up, too, albeit in a more schematic way. As you can see above, the Galaxy S8 would eventually be a tad taller, but quite more narrow than the LG G6 with the same screen size. Since LG’s flagship is already the most compact 5.7-incher money can still not buy, the S8 screen-to-body ratio should be one for the ages, and hopefully a harbinger of things to come with phones down the road.
