Found a crazy deal on a mobile phone and now you are tied to a service contract?? The service provider is charging an extra-ordinary money for early termination? Read this article and find out how you can get out of your wireless contract without paying any early termination fee (ETF).
It is again that time of the year when the holiday seasons are coming up and people are buying new contract phones at cheap rates mostly around few cents! We have also listed cheap deals on Smartphones. These phones with extra discounts comes with a contract which is the real catch. The contract binds you to use the service provider services for a set period of time and you can’t use any other service provider on the same phone. Because of that bindings and some other reasons like poor service or high rates can also cause the customer to change the networks.
If you want to change the service provider because of poor service, high rates or whatever the reason is… Take a look at the proven strategies to get out of the wireless contract without having to pay the huge early termination fee (ETF):
1. Contact the Carrier and Tell About Service issues:
The first step is contacting your carrier and telling them about the issues you are having with the service. Is the data slow or you are having signal problems? Let the customer service log each and every problem. The purpose of doing that is to let your problems being noted down and added to your account log.
Own a Nexus 5? and don’t like the official bumper case? Well you are not alone. There are a lot of people who are unhappy with the original bumper case of the Nexus 5 and even in the market, there are not any good alternatives except the poetic’s borderline bumper case. I have to say that this case stands out of the crowd and has all the things which you will like in a good standard bumper case.. and it is made for the Google Nexus 5!
Poetic is not a new company. They are famous for the mobile phone cases and just recently they have released their new set of cases for the Nexus 5. The one which we will review today is the bumper case that protects the edges and leaves the back of the phone exposed.
The material used in the case is the TPU plastic which is pretty good and reliable. The front and the end of the case gives a rubbery feel and the edges have a glossy finish. The best thing about the case is that it doesn’t limit the functionality of the Nexus 5 and looks great in hand. As it is made for the nexus 5, so all the ports are accessible along with a custom built-in volume control button. You may me thinking that what if the case gets damaged or you simply need a replacement, then the Poetic also offers a 3 year warranty which sweetens up the deal.
If you don’t already know then for your information, online retailers like Amazon often offers some crazy discounts and deals on several items and Android smartphones is one of them. You can get a brand new smartphone in just a few pennies. Yes you have heard right… just few pennies and you will get a new smartphone.

ZTE Nubia Z7 is still not released but there were several rumors that it will be going to a competitor of the Sony Xperia Z and a recent leaked screenshots of the ZTE Nubia Z7 proves that these rumors were true. Today some interesting information regarding the screen size and the specs of the ZTE Nubia Z7 has been leaked which clearly shows it is going to give a hard time to the new upcoming mobiles.
When it comes to the screen size and the hardware specs, you will be amazed to see that it has a massive 6.4 inch screen which is very similar to the Sony’s upcoming phone. It will be more accurate if we call it a phablet. Take a look at the leaked picture of the ZTE Nubia Z7:
The mobile which you see in the above picture is of the upcoming mobile “ZTE Nubia Z7”. We were also able to get our hands on the specifications of the phone. The ZTE Nubia Z7 will have a 6.44 inch screen (1920 x 1080 resolution), 4G LTE and a little faster Snapdragon 800 CPU. The chip is the same which was used in the Samsung Galaxy S3 and other phones and the only difference is that it is slightly optimized to deliver better performance.
Main specifications of the phone are given below:
Screen: 6.44 inch display
Ram: 3 GB
Camera: 13 MP
Processor: Snapdragon 800 @ 2.3 GHz
GPU: Adreno 330 @ 550 MHz
Storage: 128 GB
OS: Android 4.4 KitKat
With all these specs, there is no doubt that it will be untamed beast and a very strong contender for the phones which will release near its release date. Will it be able to put a dent in the sales of the biggest giants?? We have to wait…
The long awaited Nexus 5 is finally a reality and Google has already started taking orders for this new device. The pricing of the nexus 5 starts from $349 with 16 GB memory and the one with 32 GB comes with a little higher price. It is available in two beautiful colors: White & Black. It is using the all new and the best from the Google, Android 4.4 (Kit Kat).
Now with the Google nexus, you can capture the moment that matters! The advance lens of the Google Nexus 5 can capture more light during night to make sure that you get the best pictures any time. Then there is a HDR+ mode using which you can capture dozens of pictures and then combine them to get the perfect shot. You can’t capture real life with a “4” x “6” screen that’s why with Nexus 5 you can create the effect of immersive 360° view that no other mobile or even a camera in the market can offer.
Google is claiming that it is the most powerful Nexus phone ever made. A 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 800 processor gives life to the Google Nexus 5 phone and the all new Android 4.4 kit kat operating system provides the best out of the available hardware. As it is a Google phone, so you can expect the best of Google. All the Google apps have been integrated in the phone to give you the best experience.

OS: Android 4.4 kit kat
CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon™ 800 processor @ 2.26 GHz

According to LG it is the best phone they have ever made. The question is will LG be able to put a dent into Samsung’s armor?? There are a lot of companies in the same boat as they cannot compete against Samsung but LG is different. They are a big company with deep pockets. They can afford to take risks and already in the electronic market for few decades. Before the LG G2, LG was just lurking in the Android phone market but with the release of this phone, it looks like they have decided to finally enter in the market with this amazing phone.
So let’s take a closer look at LG G2:
The outer body has been made from plastic just like Samsung phone but actually the material of the plastic is many times better as compared to the new Samsung phones. Now some of you believe that LG is just a copycat trying to copy the other phone manufacturing giants but that’s not the case. LG has introduced a handful of new innovative ideas and technologies in this phone like moving the power button and volume control on the back of the phone. According to LG the back of the phone is a more natural place for these buttons.
For me the new location of the power button is helpful. LG has taken a wise step in moving the location of the power button and no wonder other companies will copy that style. LG G2 is approximately of the same size as the Droid DNA (5.0 inches) and yet it has a 5.2 inch display with the same amount of space. This will take less space in your pocket and you can hold in your hands easily. This is a true button-less phone with no buttons at all. LG has opted for on-screen buttons taking a risk as no other company has ever done it before.
