Going over on my data package is not really anything that I have to worry about. I am luckily on a grandfathered unlimited data plan with Verizon. My family regularly uses over 60GB per month. We don't do anything stupid or crazy either. This data is mostly used watching youtube videos, netflix or streaming music and podcasts. We rack up the data pretty quickly.

If you are on a limited data plan you may want to change your browser to Opera. They have included a new feature called Opera turbo that strips the web of all the extra unnecessary content that hogs up all your bandwidth. It can even [reduce] the size of videos you stream. This one simple change could save you lots of money.

It seems like CyanogenMod is coming to new flagship devices slower than ever. Lollipop has made any kind of root or modifications a pain staking process for developers, which has really slowed down the process of building AOSP roms like CM 12.1. We are several months past the release of the M9 and Galaxy S6, but still neither device has a proper AOSP rom.

The Sony Xperia M2 is a bit older of a device which means it has already had dedicated developers. They have just released their version of Lollipop for the device. To install CM12.1 on your Xperia M2 you will need to be sure that you are bootloader unlocked with TWRP installed. Grab the rom and gapps from the links below.

One of the quickest and easiest ways to freshen up your devices home screen is to give it a shiny new wallpaper. If you are stuck with a device for the extent of your two year contract this can also be a good way to get a taste of that new flagship phone that just came out. H2OS was just released for the OnePlus One and the wallpapers have already been extracted from the OS. Head to the link below to download the entire lot of walls.

BlackBerry has been on the edge of extinction for years now. The only thing keeping them alive is the fact that some businesses refuse to use anything but blackberry since blackberry has made a name for themselves as being the most secure handset on the market. If you want to know Blackberry's clientele think medical field. I have not seen anyone carry a blackberry in real life in years. BlackBerry is looking to breath some life back into their company by creating a sleek device that runs Android. They have said they would only release an Android device if it could still be as secure as current Blackberry devices.

The image above is that of the rumored "BlackBerry Venice". As you can see it is running Android. It looks to be pretty thin, has curved edges, and front facing speakers! Unfortunately there is no USB Type-C. Who knows what other specs are included. Of course any of this could change this is just a render. I don't know if Im excited or just feel meh about this one. Who's interested in a BlackBerry Android device?

If you are an LG G4 early adopter you probably missed out on the awesome leather backs that really made this device feel like a truly premium device. The diamond plated silver back just feels kind of cheap. This is the back that came with my review phone. If you try to order the G4 on Verizon there is still no Leather back option. If you are wanting to pick up a leather back for your G4 they are finally available as a separate purchase! They will set you back $69. Keep in mind these are the official OEM back plates and they are made with genuine leather and stitching so the cost may well be worth it. Grab your leather back from the link below. You will want to hurry there are only a few left in stock!

In this video we match the Galaxy S6 Edge against the HTC One M9. Both devices are highly capable with some killer specs! In day to day use they seem to be pretty much neck and neck, but the benchmark tests reveal that one of the two devices does have an "edge' over the other!

Chevy has found a way to cool your device while it wirelessly charges in your car! This is actually pretty awesome. I have to carry devices with me at work which I need to complete my daily tasks. Sometimes I return to my van to find that my device has powered down or stopped working due to overheating as it bakes in the sun. Chevorlet has found a way to actively cool down your phone as it wirelessly charges! This is pretty awesome. The way this works is simpler then you think. A special vent will deliver cool air from your AC to a spot where your phone will sit and wirelessly charge. This seems simple enough and should be available in Chevy vehicles soon.

Swappa is really the only good place to sale your phone these days. If you are a phone addict like me then you sell phones regularly to raise money to buy your next device. You could sell your phone on Craigslist, but then you have to risk possibly being chopped up by a lunatic when you go to meet your potential buyer.

There is Ebay, but recently I have tried to sell a particular phone and I have had two false buyers to have the winning option. In both cases I was sent a fake email from "paypal" saying that the device was paid for and I should go ahead and ship the phone. When I looked at my paypal account there had been no payment. I have decided that I won't be able to sell anything else on ebay. It is a wast of time and effort.

I have been able to sell three phones on Swappa and each time I have had a great experience. They only ask for a straight $10 fee which is much less than ebay ask (about $50 for a flagship device). They have moderators who moderate each sell and make sure no scamming is going on. If you are looking to sell your device you will want to check out the new Swappa app which gives you an estimate of what your phone is worth. Once you figure that part out you will know if it is worth it to sell your device on Swappa or not. Grab this app from the link below.

One of the biggest headaches when it comes to Android is getting your Windows PC to find your device. For the most part if you turn on usb debugging and plug your phone into your PC it will automagically find the correct drivers and connect to your device. Sometimes however Windows fails to find and install the proper USB drivers and in this case you have to search the web for the correct drivers which can be an agonizing task.

TechKnow has created a universal ADB driver that is compatible with over 500 devices! This is really the only driver you need to get your Android device connected and recognizable to your PC. Grab it from the link below.
