T-Mobile Responds To Verizon’s Unlimited Data Plan In A Big Way

On Sunday, Verizon unveiled their plans to once again offer customers unlimited data. Verizon was the last US carrier to do so, as T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T all had different incarnations of an unlimited plan available. It took T-Mobile all of 24 hours to fire back at Verizon, calling them out for “caving” on their stance on unlimited data. T-Mobile has been especially critical about Verizon as of late, especially since new network test findings have concluded T-Mobile’s data network is just as good as Verizon’s.

Verizon took a hard stand on the value of their unlimited plan, which truthfully is a pretty solid offering, but T-Mobile thinks they can [...]

Verizon Wireless Resurrects Unlimited Data

Seemingly out of nowhere, Verizon Wireless just announced they’re bringing back unlimited data. Verizon is just the latest carrier to offer unlimited data, after T-Mobile and AT&T announced similar plans. Both those carriers have some pretty intense fine prints within their unlimited plans though.

The plans start at $80 for [...]

The render appears to show a phone that has all but eliminated the bezels on either side of the device. Much like the Xaomi Mi Mix smartphone that was released earlier this year, the S8 appears to shake up the design game by increasing the screen size while maintaining a relatively small form factor.

OnLeaks has been super accurate with his leaks as of late. If I had to guess, I’d say we’re looking at more than a render, and [...]

4 Months With The ZTE Axon 7

Four months ago I received the beautiful quartz grey ZTE Axon 7 from Newegg. Since then, I have been using the Axon as my daily driver. When I first decided to order the phone I was sceptical due to some of my poor experiences with the ZTE brand. The marketing, build, tech and the 2 year warranty persuaded me to give it a try and I am a huge fan of this phone. I would like to share my experience of using the ZTE Axon for the last four months.

The body of the Axon held up surprisingly well over these last 4 months. Since I received the phone, I have exclusively used the clear case that was packaged with it. The case is thin and incredibly flexible, but it’s managed to keep [...]
