Here’s a neat idea — carrier “bloatware” that can be removed. If that sounds like a dream come true, you may want to snap up an LG G3 via Verizon. The carrier is going to allow their proprietary apps to be removed on the flagship smartphone from LG.
"A rose by any other name", or so the oft-quoted phrase goes. Verizon has just announced the arrival of a certain HTC One Remix, bearing key features of the One M8 in a tinier package. For all intents and purposes, however, this is the very same One mini 2 that will be launched in Europe and Asia-Pacific, simply slapped on with Verizon branding. But that's not exactly a bad thing.
So you finally have the 4G LTE device that you’ve been dreaming of. But then your connectivity leaves a lot to be desired so the LTE part of your smartphone is practically useless.

After a few months of speculation about Android updates for this trio of DROID smartphones, Motorola and Verizon have started rolling out the update with a bit of a twist.

The Sony Xperia Z2 tablet is officially here, and will be arriving on the Verizon network. On July 17, Verizon customers will have exclusive access to the tablet. If you’re anxious, you can also pre-order the new 10-inch tblet starting tomorrow, July 10, directly from Verizon.
While Verizon Wireless prepaid service is a viable option, some may have been turned off due to the lack of 4G LTE speeds. Up until now Verizon has only been offering 4G LTE to postpaid customers, which ultimately means prepaid users have been limited to 3G speeds. But in a bit of hopeful news -- it appears this will soon be changing.
Verizon Wireless understands the joys and pains that comes from a lot of people using a single tablet. If buying one tablet per member is not an option in your family, they are offering the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 from June 26. The Multi-User feature is probably the highlight of this 8-inch device which was created specifically for cases that call for multiple customisation.
Samsung and its carrier partners are continuing the much-welcomed onslaught of Android 4.4 updates this week. Living up to "better late than never", Verizon is rolling out the latest version, though only Android 4.4.2 in this case, to the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Galaxy S4 Mini.
