Deal alert! Get two LG G5’s for the price of one thanks to Verizon

If you and a friend/partner both need a new phone, now might be the time to get it, especially if you’re a Verizon customer or open to switching over to the carrier. If you add two new lines to your plan and buy an LG G5, you’ll get a second G5 for free.

The promotion isn’t running for long — you have until May 11 to take advantage of it, but if you’ve been holding off on buying a new phone the promotion could be worth considering. Of course, Verizon does say that you have to open two new lines, so if you already have a line you may not be able to take advantage of it.

If you already purchased a G5 from Verizon, you may still be able to utilize the promotion, but you need to have bought it within 14 days — simple add one new line instead of two, and while you’ll make monthly payments on both you’ll get a refund in the form of a Visa gift card. To get two G5 smartphones follow these instructions:

  1.  Add two G5 smartphones to your cart and complete the checkout process. There aren’t any promo codes to fill out during checkout.
  2. Head to with your order details and use the promo code G5-APRILPROMO to complete the process.
  3. Wait for your Visa gift card, which should arrive in between 8 and 10 weeks.

The G5 is a pretty impressive device, and made headlines for its modular design when it was released. The phone has a slot on the bottom that can be use to insert modules for things like extra camera controls, with more modules set to be released over time.

Is 5G dangerous for airplanes? Here’s what pilots and the FAA say
Aircraft among clouds descending for a landing.

After months of wrangling with the aviation industry, AT&T and Verizon finally got the green light to go live with their new C-Band 5G rollouts earlier this year. While both carriers had to make some concessions to placate fears that the new spectrum would interfere with aircraft instruments, some pilots are now wondering if those were enough.

Throughout most of 2021, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and key aviation industry stakeholders argued that the frequencies used by the new C-band spectrum sat perilously close to those occupied by critical aircraft instruments, such as radar altimeters. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC), AT&T, and Verizon disagreed — citing studies conducted by the government regulator that showed little to no risk.

Samsung has finally announced One UI 5, its take on Android 13. The company is focusing on improving the customizability of its operating system, refining its distinct design language, and adding some nice-to-have improvements as well.

Samsung's headlining feature here is lock screen customization. Although not exactly new to the company's phones, Samsung is bringing that functionality over to One UI's stock lock screen just after Apple unveiled something similar on iOS 16. You can tweak the wallpaper, clock style, notification design, and more. It's even been tweaked to look like Apple's implementation. Lock screen customization is a useful feature that you'll find on many Chinese Android phones. It's one that Google should implement in Android as a whole, especially considering its focus on individuality with Material You.
