LG G7 ThinQ launches globally this week for G6-like prices

LG just announced that the G7 ThinQ – its newest flagship smartphone – is launching globally starting this week. The handset first hits shelves in South Korea (LG’s home country), where customers will be able to buy it as of tomorrow, May 18. Shortly after, the G7 ThinQ will be released in “key markets” across America, Europe, and Asia.

 

As previously reported, in South Korea, prices for the LG G7 ThinQ will be similar to those of last year’s LG G6, starting at 898,700 won. We’re expecting the same thing to happen in the US, so the G7 should be priced at around $700 stateside. …


Massive OnePlus 6 leak reveals prices, release date, and nice-looking renders

Mere days before the OnePlus 6 will be officially unveiled, Amazon Germany has made a tiny mistake and published high-res renders of the smartphone, alongside details about its price and release date. While Amazon quickly removed all the OnePlus 6 information that it inadvertently revealed, German website WinFuture still has the main details, plus new images of the upcoming device.
According to Amazon Germany, the OnePlus 6 will be released on May 22. This makes sense – we already know that OnePlus plans to allow a limited number of customers to buy the phone on May …

Cricket vs MetroPCS, Straight Talk, Boost and Project Fi prepaid plan prices

All major carriers have had those crappy prepaid phones for a while now, for folks who don’t really have the wherewithal to endure two-year contracts, or the credit history to get a subsidized expensive phone with set monthly outlays. The death of two-year contracts forced them to rethink the prepaid conundrum, too, and these plans are now much better priced, plus the phones offered are no longer scraping the bottom of the specs barrel.

Sometimes, however, going the MVNO route is still the only way to get unlimited data at reasonable pricing on your favorite carrier of choice. Not only …

Samsung Store drops prices on carrier Galaxy S9/S9+ to unlocked levels, cuts more off AT&T models

The online Samsung Store today has given U.S. consumers a reason not to buy the Samsung Galaxy S9 or Samsung Galaxy S9+ from their wireless providers. Sammy has lowered the price of carrier branded variants of its 2018 flagship phones to match the price of the U.S. unlocked versions. Since Verizon and AT&T each tacked on approximately $80 to the price of the Galaxy S9, and $90 to the price of the Galaxy S9+, this represents a small but much appreciated savings.

So the new pricing from the Samsung Store has the Galaxy S9 (U.S. carrier or U.S. unlocked) available for $719.99, and the Galaxy …

Samsung lowers the prices of Galaxy S9 and S9+ (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint)

If you’re planning to buy a Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9+ on Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint, we have a friendly advice: purchase the phone(s) directly from Samsung. That’s because, at this moment, Samsung is offering the S9 for $719.99, and the S9+ for $839.99 – regardless of carrier and method of purchase (outright, or with monthly payments). This means you can save at least $70 on the AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint variants of the two handsets. 
In case you’re wondering, Samsung hasn’t lowered the prices of T-Mobile’s Galaxy S9 and S9+. But that’s okay, as T-Mobile’s …

Dear Microsoft, your Samsung Galaxy S8 prices make no sense

If you want to buy a Samsung Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+, whatever you do, don’t go to Microsoft for this. That’s because the prices that Microsoft is currently asking for Samsung’s ex flagship smartphones make no sense at all.
Microsoft is selling the unlocked Galaxy S8 for $724.99, and the unlocked Galaxy S8+ for $824.99. Meanwhile, the brand new (and obviously superior) Galaxy S9 is five bucks cheaper than the S8, being offered by Microsoft for $719.99 unlocked, while the larger Galaxy S9+ is priced at $839.99. For a limited time, Microsoft …

Trump's tariffs on Chinese imports could raise Apple iPhone prices in the U.S.

If you live in the U.S. and end up having to pay much more for your next Apple iPhone, you might put the blame squarely on President Donald J. Trump. The president went against the advice of his rapidly changing staff (can’t tell the players without a scorecard) and announced tariffs against imports from China. A 25% tariff will be added to as much as $50 billion worth of goods from the country. The majority of products affected are said to be from the high-tech sector.

While many consider the Apple iPhone to be as American as Apple Pie, the truth is that the handset is designed …

Huawei has already confirmed its new trio of P20 smartphones will be officially revealed on March 27. However, we already know what these phones will look like, while many of their specifications have already leaked out.

One thing that was still a mystery until recently was the pricing. Well, that’s not the case any longer since reputable leakster Roland Quandt revealed information about the P20 prices in Europe. At first glance, it looks like the most powerful Huawei P20 model will be priced higher than the Galaxy S9, but it will be much cheaper than the S9+.

Huawei P20 Pro is expected …

More Moto G6, Plus and Play specs leak out, along with their prices

Info about Motorola’s upcoming phones is leaking from all sides these days, indicating that Moto may launch a G6, G6 Play and G6 Plus very soon, likely at the Mobile World Congress at the end of February. The three devices will purportedly have a brand new glass-and-metal design, similar to that of last year’s Moto X4.

While the design already leaked out, in a beautiful, trendy 18:9 screen format, the specs have been the subject of speculation for a good month now, with just one piece of info trickling down the rumor pipe. Until today, that is, when we reiterate most …
