Well, did you see enough today to make the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 your next phone? We know that the Note 2 cult had quite the membership, but does the Note 3 offer enough to get Note 2 users to upgrade and Note-holdouts to make the switch? We’re talking a similar sized device with a slightly bigger yet full HD display, upgraded camera, more RAM, a super-powerful processor, new S Pen, and the latest version of Android. It’s quite the overall package, even with that ridiculous faux leather back.
Is the Note 3 your next phone?
With talks of a possible “gold” iPhone hitting the streets, it reminds us of all of the overly-priced gold Android devices we have seen in the past. The gold rumored to be on the new iPhone isn’t real though, it’s just a champagne-color coating apparently, but does a gold/champagne phone actually interest anybody?
If your Galaxy S4 or HTC One came in gold, would you even think about buying it? What about the Moto X? Is it just over the top or does it sound hot?
Let us know what you think about gold phones down below.
Today, we met LG’s newest flagship device, the G2. It is an incredibly power-stacked device, featuring a 5.2″ 1080p display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera capable of taking some great shots and a newly modified version of LG’s user experience. It’s a really sleek device, complete with an entirely new button configuration, which people might have troubles getting used to.
There are some other devices that were recently announced, such as the Moto X and the new lineup of DROIDs, plus you also have the Galaxy Note 3 on the horizon. The G2 will have to compete with all of these, especially with two of them likely going to each major U.S. carrier as well.
From what you have seen and heard so far, how do you feel about the G2? Thinking about possibly picking one up? Let us know.
We finally know the official specs. We finally know the official *on-contract* pricing. We finally know which carriers it is coming to. The Moto X is finally official. Official! The only question remains, do you still want it? With many folks caught off guard by the $199 price tag, we noticed some people jumped ship pretty quickly in the comments section.
Once you choose yes, no or still deciding, feel free to go down below and let us know which carrier you plan on going with if you are picking one up. If you chose no, tell us why. Time to tell us how you really feel.
In less than two days, we’ll know everything there is to know about the Moto X. We’ll see a confirmation on specs, how Motorola plans to let you customize it, if there are any extra tricks in store outside of what we saw last week during the DROID unveiling, and probably most importantly, when it’ll be available and for how much. But what we want to know, since this has been one of the most hyped phones since maybe the Galaxy Nexus LTE on Verizon, is what do you need to see on Thursday to make the Moto X your next phone?

Once they hit Google Play and online retailers, the Chromecast sold out fast. You can find some in select stores, so be sure to call up your local Best Buy and other retailers if you are still looking to snag one. Priced at $35, we should have known that everyone was going to go crazy for this little device. It has a lot of potential and launches with some great content streaming features, perfect for those that love devouring videos on the web.
Feel free to answer our poll below and then share why you decided to buy one. Was there a feature that stood out for you?
Now that you have had a chance to soak in all that Google announced today, we are curious to know which piece you are most excited about. Did the new Nexus 7 win you over with its super high-res display? What about Android 4.3? It’s finally here! – and OTAs for most Nexus devices are rolling out as early as today. Did the Chromecast blow your mind at its $35 price?
Let us know what grabbed your attention, and then weigh in with thoughts in the comments.
We now have the newest members of the Motorola DROID brand. Verizon announced the DROID Mini, DROID ULTRA and DROID MAXX today in one of the shortest press conferences we have ever seen. The 4.3″ DROID Mini features the same dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor and Motorola X8 Computing System found in the ULTRA and MAXX, but only costs $99 on-contract.
The 5″ 720p DROID ULTRA is the thinnest of the bunch, coming in at only 7.18mm thick and costs $199 on-contract. Then there is the 5″ DROID MAXX with a whopping 48 hour battery life and an OLED screen that you can also find in the Ultra. The MAXX will hit Verizon for $299 on-contract, along with the rest of the DROIDS, on August 20. Verizon lists all these phones as launching with Android 4.2 and wireless charging capabilities out of the box.
So that leads us to today’s poll – will you be buying one of the new DROIDs? If rumors are correct, the Moto X is coming just around the corner for $300 off-contract. Do these look enticing in any way?
