Pictures of the DROID Turbo are hitting the web, ahead of its unveiling by Motorola and Verizon next week. Thanks to many leaks, we already know everything we need to know about the Turbo, including the fact that it will sport a 5.2″ QHD display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 21MP rear-facing camera, and a 3,900mAh battery.

After being announced by Samsung, the Galaxy Alpha was a device we saw unexpected excitement for. Maybe it is the new design language Samsung implemented for the hardware, or the fact it features decent specs in a smaller package, but many people across the web seemed interested in the device, so we decided to pick one up and try it for ourselves.
Having spent my time with an iPhone 6 before the Galaxy Alpha, the smaller size was no big deal, as I was already accustomed to a display smaller than 5″. However, making that jump between iOS and Android was a weird one, as the operating systems are certainly very different from each other, but it felt great to be back on Android. Plus, given that a few in this industry labeled the Galaxy Alpha as an “iPhone Killer,” I was excited to see if the phone could live up to that hype.
This is our Galaxy Alpha review. (more…)
Inbox is Google’s new take on email, but as many of you have already noticed, the app is a lot like Mailbox, a popular email app that helps make you more productive by turning your inbox into a task manager of sorts. Both are pretty awesome. Both are also very different ways of attacking email, though. To use either, you really need to look at your inbox in a different way, which for some of you, may be too much to ask.
Since we received an invite for Inbox, we decided that we should show you how it works. If you decide to take Inbox for a spin at some point (assuming invites become available in the near future), then we want you to know what you are getting yourself into. Because again, this isn’t the typical email setup where you receive all emails into your primary inbox, many of which fill up that inbox and make you feel like an unproductive slug. (more…)
Google Now, the prescient digital assistant, earlier this month and last began reminding users of important stuff like voter registration and deals on airfare. Hot on the heels of those additions, another soon-to-be-indispensable card has begun popping up for users – information about local police activity. (more…)
People buy phone cases for lots of different reasons, most commonly to restyle a handset’s exterior and to protect (or at least attempt to protect) it from nicks and scratches. Whatever the objective, covers unfortunately do not come cheap; you can typically count on shelling out $25 and up for reputable brands. That’s why TYLT’s October promotion, which runs through the 30th, seems like such a steal.
TYLT’s cases usually retail between $35 and $50 , but are on sale for just $10 through the end of the month. Plus, shipping is free to customers within the continental United States. (more…)
It has been quite some time since the last major Google Earth update, and the Android app was really beginning to stagnate. Allaying fears of abandonment, Google today released a new version, Google Earth 8.0, that introduces a revamped rendering engine, better maps, and slight UI enhancements. (more…)
Motorola may have disappointed many of you when it decided against making a developer edition of the brand new Moto X (2nd gen) for Verizon, but Samsung is giving it us in the form of the Galaxy Note 4. That’s right, a Galaxy Note 4 Developer Edition that will work on Verizon’s network is officially “coming soon,” according to Samsung’s website. (more…)
