If there's one thing (and there is) I miss about carrying around my Lumia 1020, it's that phone's dedicated, two-stage camera button. Designed to mimic "real" camera shutter releases, it's a feature I've missed dearly on my current daily driver, Apple's iPhone 6. Seattle-based Moment seems to thin...

Taking your phone into a service center for a firmware update is so 1999, but Samsung apparently didn't get the memo, because Sprint just announced that you'll need to head into one of the carrier's stores with a repair facility to get your Moment re-upped. Of course, the good news here is that the ...

Samsung's out and about this evening showing off its just-announced Moment with extra Mobile DTV circuitry stuffed in, and if you thought it looked an awful lot like a standard Moment... well, you'd be absolutely right.

You know the old saying -- as LG does, so does Samsung -- so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Sammy's swinging in today with a ATSC Mobile DTV announcement following LG's a few days ago (of course, it helps that both companies worked were actively working on the technology for a couple yea...

Well, your decision just got a bit more difficult, as Best Buy has now kicked off a new holiday promotion that'll net you a chin-less Sprint Hero for the same hundred bucks as Verizon's Eris.
