Don't be put off by expensive wireless chargers. There are affordable options that do exactly the same thing.
It wasn't uncommon to see ridiculous price tags on the newest OEM wireless chargers, especially after flagship devices started packing Qi-compatibility. Shortly after, however, aftermarket manufacturers stepped in — providing essentially the same convenient chargers — but at a fraction of the price.
This brief list of affordable wireless chargers will give you the sweet freedom from cables that most of us desire without breaking the bank.
Huawei has received approval from the FCC on a new device which is very similar to the recently announced Huawei P8.
Huawei officially announced the P8 smartphone today, and the FCC has now approved a new smartphone which bears stunning resemblance to the device. From the image included in the FCC listing there are a few minor changes to note, such as the camera flash moving to the opposite side.
Besides the P8, Huawei had a surprise for us today in London. A big surprise. A freaking 6.8-inch surprise. That would be the Huawei P8 Max.
And you read that right. A nearly-7-inch phone. Huawei's not exactly immune to busting out huge phones like this — big even by today's standards — but large phone is large.
It's sporting a 4360 mAh battery that Huawei says should get you more than 2 days' use on a single charge. It's got an 83 percent screen to body ratio and is just 6.8mm thin. And 94 percent of the body is metal, with the display covered by Gorilla Glass 4.
Samsung Galaxy Note 3 owners on Verizon Wireless will be happy to see the Lollipop update hitting their devices.
Lollipop has been rolling out for more and more devices daily, and now Samsung Galaxy Note 3 users on Verizon can join in on the update fun. The update bumps the device up to Android 5.0, bringing quite a few changes along with it.
Today Huawei will unveil its next flagship smartphone at an event in London, and we'll be covering it live.
At the London launch event, the Chiense manufacturer is expected to launch the Ascend P8, the latest in its line of high-end Android phones. We're expecting Huawei to build on recent premium offerings like the Honor 6+ and Ascend Mate 7 by packing some of these phones' standout features into a smaller chassis.
We'll have to wait a little longer to find out what's in store for us, though. The action kicks off at 3pm London time — that's 10am EDT, or 7am on the West coast. Head past the break for our liveblog and livestream!

If you're having a hard time replying to text messages this morning and are being told you're trying to reply to an invalid number ... you're not alone.
We're still diving into this a bit, but it looks like incoming text messages (and this appears to be localized on AT&T) are being appended with a +11 country code. Problem is there is no 11 country code, so the reply fails.
