You now have 10,000 more chances to get the smartphone of Android fans’ dreams

The OnePlus One might not have the best smartphone name you’ve ever seen, but just about everything else about it is tremendously appealing — especially if you’re a hardcore Android fan. The handset runs a heavily customized version of Android known as CyanogenMod, and it’s just begging to be hacked to your heart’s content. It also features a sleek design, surprisingly solid specs and an off-contract price that starts at just $299.

The problem, of course, is that it’s incredibly difficult to purchase a OnePlus One because the phone is in such high demand. Now, however, OnePlus is giving Android fans 10,000 more chances to buy a One. More →

You can now buy the best flagship phone Samsung has ever made for just $79

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 might not be the most exciting smartphone the world has ever seen, but it’s still easily the best flagship phone Samsung has ever made. It has a gorgeous full HD display, a lightning-fast processor, a shockingly good camera and plenty more that make the Galaxy S5 one of the most capable handsets to date. Sales haven’t been terribly impressive and Samsung’s stock is down more than 12.5% over the past 3 months as a result, but that certainly doesn’t make the device any less appealing to smartphone buyers — and if you’re in the market for a new smartphone, now is the perfect time to consider the S5.

Even still, Apple generally likes to be the first company to announce its new devices and make them official before its carrier partners and distributors start sharing their plans for new iPhones.

At least one wireless carrier didn’t get that memo, however, as China Telecom has apparently just confirmed the iPhone 6 publicly and shared a few details about the device. More →
