Moto Z4 on Verizon comes with a 5G offer

Moto Z4 on Verizon comes with a 5G offer

Amazon accidentally sold the Moto Z4 so there's really not many surprises to expect from it when it does formally and finally launches officially. That, however, doesn't mean that there will be no treats from those who will buy the phone through other channels. Yes, that refers to carriers who will be throwing in deals to make the Moto Z4 worth your time. Like the one Verizon is offering that practically makes the mid-range device the 5G phone that you can get now rather than later.

Verizon’s Galaxy S10 5G released without one major feature

Verizon’s Galaxy S10 5G released without one major feature

After a bit of a wait, the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G is now available. This is definitely an exciting launch because the Galaxy S10 is one of the first 5G flagships out of the gate, but unfortunately, this release is a fairly limited in scope in more ways than one. The phone is only available on Verizon for the time being, so if you're not already a Verizon customer or don't have plans to switch carriers, you'll be waiting for the Galaxy S10 5G a little longer.

Four US carriers sued for selling location data to third-parties

Four US carriers sued for selling location data to third-parties

2018 was a big year for privacy and not in a good way. It was a year where privacy violations were exposed left and right and not all of them involved Facebook. Just as scandalous was the revelation that the four major US carriers have, at one point or another, sold their customer's location data to third-parties, which then ended up with bounty hunters and illegal users. Although AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon have promised to stop that practice, customers are still taking them to court for it.

Why the best Galaxy Note 10 experience won’t reach Verizon

Samsung is at the center of a confusing time in the mobile smart device industry, what with the release of several new eras in connectivity technology. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is key to the company's strategy in continuing to dominate the Android smartphone market, not only because of its release timing, but because of the way Samsung's positioned the phone in the market - as the PRO smartphone to beat.

Verizon reveals Galaxy S10 5G pre-order details in full

Verizon reveals Galaxy S10 5G pre-order details in full

Verizon today confirmed another 20 cities that will get its 5G mobility service at some point this year, which is all well and good, but we still don't have very many 5G phones to actually leverage that service. Verizon does sell the Moto Z3 and its 5G Moto Mod in markets where it offers 5G service, but there are a lot of folks out there who likely only have eyes for one 5G phone: the Galaxy S10. In addition to padding out its list of 5G cities for 2019, Verizon also announced that the Galaxy S10 5G is now available to pre-order.

Verizon 5G confirmed for these 20 cities next

Slowly but surely, carriers have started rolling out their mobile 5G networks. Though Verizon wasn't the first to get its mobile 5G network off the ground - that distinction goes to AT&T - it's looking to get the ball moving rather quickly. Verizon's 5G network launched in parts of Chicago and Minneapolis earlier this month, and now Verizon has announced 20 other cities that will receive 5G service by the end of the year.

Verizon Galaxy S10 5G pre-orders start next week

There's no stopping 5G and it's really only a question of when and on what phone. The actual nationwide rollout of the next-gen cellular network isn't expected until next year, or later this year at the earliest, but that doesn't mean you can't start preparing for it this month. That, of course, means getting a brand new, 5G-compatible phone of which the Galaxy S10 5G will be one of the first to land on shelves, starting with Verizon.
