AT&T Lumia 950 $0 upfront at Amazon

Windows Central:
The AT&T version of Microsoft’s recently launched Lumia 950 smartphone is now available for free via AT&T Next if you buy the Windows 10 Mobile smartphone from Amazon.

It’s not free. Look at the AT&T site and it’s the same price and has been since release. $0 upfront, then either $19.97, $24.97, or $29.97 per month depending on length of the Next plan. It’s nothing more than a lease.

AT&T Lumia 950 Firmware update – Windows as a Service updates

“The 950 will be receiving monthly WaaS (Windows as a Service) updates, and the latest one released on December 8th (Build Version 10.0.10586.29.) These updates are not certified by AT&T, and will be delivered via Microsoft over-the-air. A Wi-Fi connection is required. From the App List, scroll down and tap Settings > Phone Update > Check for Update.”

I don’t think anyone in the US has received the firmware update, locked or unlocked. Which tells me it could be quite a while before AT&T phones get it.

Spirnt LG G Stylo upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Check the current device software:

The only mention the sprint version of the lg g stlyo should get is that it was a huge rip off. Tmobile released the same phone with 2 gb of ram making it a good budget device, but sprint releases the same phone with 1 gb of ram making it a laggy, buggy phone that force closes apps.

Verizon LG Optimus Zone 3 Android Phone leaked

It’s the beauty of Android. Different level of phones for different needs. Low-end cheap devices like this are targeted at lower-priced prepaid providers. In this case, the phone is designed for Verizon Wireless Prepaid, which offers unlimited talk, text, and 3GB data for $45/month.

Samsung Galaxy A9 – New Samsung Phones

The new Samsung Galaxy A9 is a really good physical size for a 6 inch phone. Put these same features in the S7 plus with top of the line processor and camera (that’s a given), and I’m sold.

Engadget:

At its Galaxy A Party 2016 event in China, Samsung announced the high-end Galaxy A9 with a six-inch 1080p super AMOLED display.

Key Features:
6-inch 1080p super AMOLED display

Snapdragon 652 processor
3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage
13MP rear facing camera
8MP front facing camera
7.4mm thick
Android 5.1.1 OS

Very impressive specs. I personally prefer 5.5 inch screens or less. I am definitely going to consider this device when I upgrade in 2016.

AT&T GoPhone Lumia 640 only $50 at BestBuy

I bought 3 AT&T 640’s and unlocked them all no hassle. Using on Tmo and getting LTE. No band 12 means you won’t have the new 700mhz frequency that Tmo is rolling out in some places. It’s not in my area anyway.

I’m hoping it’s available on MetroPCs in-store. When the phone was launched, I bought it for free, without a contract and unlocked it in 3 months.

MetroPCs had an in-store price of $39. The rep waived me that too, since I was ready to switch from AT&T. This could still be a deal someone can check in, if you are ready to switch your carrier. I did it, since coverage was the same in my area, and AT&T wasn’t launching the 640 on June. I hope they carry the 650 too!

I got my 640 from the MS store for $40 a few days before BF. I did not want to chance Bestbuy selling out so just got it early. Best $40 I have ever spent. Running win10 mobile now. Just buy it, you will not be disappointed

Samsung Galaxy A9 photos leaked

PhoneArena:
Today, The Samsung Galaxy A9 was approved by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center…

On Teanaa site this phone looks beautiful. Looking forward to it.

I still miss my Galaxy Note’s AMOLED screen, and I like big phones. So if the price is right and the back is not made of glass, I’m interested. If this is a glass phone, sorry, I need my phone to survive a drop.
