ASUS ZenFone V is another odd Verizon exclusive

ASUS ZenFone V is another odd Verizon exclusive

Verizon has just lost its exclusivity with Motorola’s Droid series and with Sprint’s Essential exclusive as well as AT&T’s BlackBerry KEYone, the carrier might be in need of a new partner. It seems that the new partner is ASUS. After the now practically useless, thanks to Google’s own ARCore, ZenFone AR, Verizon and ASUS have apparently collaborated on a never before seen ZenFone V. And while it might not be the ZenFone 5, it could very well be the ZenFone 3.5.

Essential Phone can now be used on Verizon networks

Essential Phone can now be used on Verizon networks

When the debut Android phone from Andy Rubin's Essential was revealed last month, it was made clear that Sprint would be the only carrier in the US to sell the device. But for those interested in the Essential Phone that aren't Sprint customers, there's now another carrier option. The device is now certified to work with Verizon's networks, and therefore compatible with the Big Red carrier.

Motorola Gamepad Moto Mod Review: Great for tiny hands

Motorola Gamepad Moto Mod Review: Great for tiny hands

When I use the Gamepad Moto Mod for extended periods of time, my hands cramp. When I place the controller in the hands of a 6-year-old colleague of mine, she's able to use the controller without issue. The Gamepad Moto Mod, made for Motorola Moto Z2 Force (and similar Motorola phones), by Lenovo, works perfect in all other categories. It's just that pesky size situation that's bummed me out thoroughly.

Verizon won’t buy Comcast, apocalypse averted

Verizon won’t buy Comcast, apocalypse averted

Throughout the year, the idea of Verizon purchasing either Chater or Comcast - two huge cable providers in the US - has been floated by all sorts of people. Analysts, financial experts, and even Verizon itself have all flirted with the idea, but those who were concerned that such a deal might actually go down are getting a bit of good news today. As it turns out, Verizon has abandoned efforts to buy up a cable company... at least for now.

Verizon, ATT, T-Mobile, Sprint team up (for mobile security)

Verizon, ATT, T-Mobile, Sprint team up (for mobile security)

Here's something you probably weren't expecting: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint have announced that they're all joining forces. No, they aren't coming together to summon some kind of 4G LTE demon that will end the world as we know it, but rather to work on a new mobile authentication solution. The new group they've formed is called the Mobile Authentication Taskforce, and while that name may be a bit silly, the group serves an important purpose.

Verizon Pixel, Pixel XL Oreo updates include surprise features

Verizon Pixel, Pixel XL Oreo updates include surprise features

The advantage of owning a Google Pixel or Nexus device is that, at least within the device’s supported lifespan, you’re guaranteed to get Android updates and new versions first before anyone else does. At least in theory. If you got your device via a carrier, however, you will still face some delays, though not as much as OEM phones. The good news is that Verizon has finally started pushing out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the Pixel and Pixel XL phones under its care. The strange news is that it comes with two features never before heard in Oreo land.

New Verizon unlimited plans are going to kill consumer goodwill

New Verizon unlimited plans are going to kill consumer goodwill

Back in February, Verizon surprised everyone by announcing that it would begin offering a new unlimited plan. This set off something of a competition between the big four carriers in the US, and at the end of it all, Verizon came out on top with an unlimited plan that was surprisingly good. Today, Verizon is throwing a lot of that out the window by not only splitting its one unlimited plan into multiple tiers, but also by placing new restrictions on unlimited users.
