Sprint announced the opportunity to lease two Samsung Galaxy S8 phones for the price of one with each new line activation. The promotion starts Friday, April 21 and goes through April 27.

Sprint Galaxy S8 and S8+ pre-orders come with $100 reward eCertificate from Samsung

Samsung promised customers who pre-order the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ will receive their phones one week earlier. Otherwise, the phones should hit global markets on April 28, if nothing bad happens.

But that’s not the only advantage you get by pre-ordering either of the two phones, as Samsung has plenty of promotional offers running until April 20 or even after that date. While just about every customers who pre-orders one of the flagships will get a free Samsung Gear VR with Controller, not everyone will be getting the new deal from Sprint.

If you pre-order …

Samsung Galaxy J7 Perx goes live at Sprint, priced to sell for $265

The Galaxy J7 (2017) has finally made it to Sprint after the smartphone was released by Verizon last month under the moniker Samsung Galaxy J7 V. Virgin and Boost Mobile are likely to get the mid-range phone as well, along with TracFone and AT&T.

Sprint is now selling it as Samsung Galaxy J7 Perx for $265 outright. Customers can also choose to get it for $11 per month for 24 months, but no upfront payment.

Sprint to position pre-paid service as an alternative for consumers who don't need unlimited data

Sprint has made things quite easy for consumers. $50 a month gets you a single line of unlimited talk, text and data. The plan also comes with 10GB per month of mobile hot spot data. Streaming video arrives at a resolution as high as 1080p, music is streamed at 1.5Mbps and games are streamed at 8Mbps. Sprint customers no longer have tiers to choose from with different data buckets, and the nation’s fourth largest carrier eliminated its plan that takes 50% off the rates charged by Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile.

While Sprint’s new pricing obviously appeals to those who need unlimited data, …

Deal: LG G6 will be 50% off at Sprint for a limited time

Sprint started accepting pre-orders for the LG G6 on March 17, but the smartphone is only hitting shelves tomorrow, April 7.

The free Google Home speaker (which everyone …

Sprint rolls out Android 7.0 Nougat update to the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+

The Galaxy Note 5 is not the only Samsung smartphone that’s getting Android 7.0 Nougat at Sprint these days. Many customers who bought the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ claim they have successfully captured the update as well.

Just like the Note 5 update, this is a fairly sizeable update that weighs in at 1.45GB, so make sure you have enough free storage left before attempting to upgrade. Sprint is pushing this OTA (over the air) in stages, so if it’s not yet available on your Galaxy S6 edge+, then you should try again later.

Aside from the usual changes included in Android 7.0 Nougat, …

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 starts getting Android 7.0 Nougat at Sprint

It looks like Sprint is among the first carriers in the United States to offer Samsung Galaxy Note 5 users the highly-anticipated Android 7.0 Nougat update.

Since the Android Nougat global rollout for the Galaxy S7/S7 edge is almost over, it seems that Samsung will be focusing on bringing the update to the next phones on the list: Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6.

Sprint’s move isn’t a total surprise, as the Nougat update for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 had started to pop in various countries. Also, Samsung promised the phablet would be getting Android 7.0 Nougat in the first half of the year.

So, …

T-Mobile's interactive LTE coverage map shows how it wants to compare with Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint by late 2017

If you check out the definitions of “fun” in the dictionary, checking LTE coverage maps on the Internet would definitely not be up there. Yet, it’s always fun to see how the US’ big four mobile carriers stack up against one another in terms of LTE coverage. Either that or we are just weird for having fun with maps and whatnot.
Anyway, T-Mobile recently released an interactive map that lets consumers do just that, i.e. see how Team Magenta stacks up against Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint in an improvised coverage test. As you might imagine, that’s a pretty neat …
