Subsidized Plans Are Still The Cheaper Option

If you are looking into buying a new phone, it seems best to continue buying one with a contract attached. Specifically, if you are a customer of AT&T or Verizon Wireless, it is in fact cheaper over the life of a two-year contract when compared to full-price.

Oh look, the Galaxy K (S5 Zoom) actually looks like a phone

We already learned many of the Galaxy K’s specifications, but now we have two leaked shots suggesting that the device will actually lean more towards a smartphone, rather than a point and shoot camera, at least when it comes to its thickness.

Google needs to tackle its app discovery problem 

Android has really matured as a platform, but why is app discovery still such a problem? It’s not just that it’s difficult for indie developers to get noticed, the user experience in the Play Store is awful. The search functionality is poor and there’s a lack of curation.
