This week, Google unveiled some really cool new devices, including the next generation Pixel smartphones (the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL). With good reason, much of the buzz has revolved around the Pixel 2 phones, but officially so far, Google has identified Verizon Wireless as the sole launch partner. Having said that, interested buyers can still scour the face of the earth for Pixel 2 deals.
With recent news of LG’s flagship phablet, the V30, set to officially launch through the Big Four carriers on October 5th, Sprint has taken the opportunity to announce that the LG V30 Plus variant will be launching exclusively through its stores and its official website a little more than a week later (specifically on October 13th).
Alcatel’s Idol 5 smartphone will be arriving in the United States mobile market exclusively through Cricket Wireless, the prepaid arm of major US wireless carrier AT&T, starting on October 27th, for a price of only two hundred bucks.
As far as budget friendly smartphone options are concerned, the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus that Motorola had released last year were considered by many as one of the most impressive. This is one of the reasons why there is some excitement brewing for this year’s two upgraded versions -- the Moto G5S and the Moto G5S Plus.
Google has very recently revealed that the Android One powered edition of Motorola’s newest smartphone, the Moto X4, is now made available for preordering from the official website of its Project Fi wireless service. For those not familiar with Android One, it is essentially a super basic version of the world’s most widely used mobile operating system, which means it does not come with the usual bloatware added not only by phone makers but also by mobile operators.
The Essential Phone can now be purchased from Sprint outlets across the United States. Soon after the device was first unveiled by Andy Rubin’s startup firm Essential Products back in May earlier this year, Sprint had acquired the exclusive carrier rights to sell the handset (at least in America; in Canada, that honor goes to Telus). Sprint is selling the Essential Phone for $14.58 per month, with zero down payment, over a period of 18 months.
Android founder Andy Rubin’s Essential Phone is finally shipping to its first customers this week (as sort of promised earlier). Essential Products had taken the opportunity to confirm that fact by way of a post on Twitter. The company also made sure to offer a reminder to these first customers to watch out for tracking data sent out through email.
Back in March, Andy Rubin revealed that he was working on an Android phone under his new company, Essential. The Essential Phone was unveiled to the public as a top tier device with a 5.7 inch display and a nearly edge to edge screen. The smartphone runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor with 4 gigabytes of random access memory (RAM) and 128 gigabytes of onboard storage. What is neat about this phone is that it features magnetic modules that snap a 360 degree camera into place, along with other Essential made accessories.
Mainly because of their size and specs, phablets are not always that budget friendly. ZTE, however, has been releasing affordable big screen smartphone devices since about a couple of years ago. Sure, the brand is not as popular as Samsung or LG, but for those who do not mind exploring all available options, ZTE’s phablet offerings are actually not bad, especially for their price.
