Motorola, having just opened new Moto X pre-orders this morning, published three commercials to its YouTube channel, which show off the device’s listening capability, as well as its new 13MP rear-facing camera. (more…)
Last night, during our recording of the DL Show episode 68, Samsung unleashed six new ads, which of course, were centered around Apple’s recent announcements. The ads aren’t all great, but the first two below are actually silly enough to watch, just to see Samsung poke at Apple for their failed live stream of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus event and remind them that large phones have been around for two years.
The commercials all star faux Apple Geniuses that are borderline hipster. They encounter issues throughout with their Apple products, issues that they wouldn’t have if they were using a Galaxy Note 4. At least that’s the theme here.
I think the best part about these ads, is seeing the Apple apologist media tell the world how terrible they are, even if they are spot on. (more…)
If you happen to follow DL or myself on Twitter, then you might have seen this post coming. After more than a year, Neptune’s vision for a smartwatch, the Neptune Pine, is finally in our possession.
After receiving a healthy amount of funding on Kickstarter, the Pine is now rolling out to backers all across the country, and we have been fortunate enough to score one for review purposes. (more…)
Owners of the 1st generation Moto X are probably all asking themselves today, “Should I upgrade to the new Moto X?” That’s a great question, one that we hope to have an answer for within the next week or so as we put together a full review. Until then, all we can do to help you get to a solution is continue to fill up your day with new Moto X coverage.
Today, well, is kind of a crazy day if you are a Motorola fan. Not only did we get a brand new Moto X (specs) and official details on the Moto 360, but we also got a new Moto G, news of a sweet Bluetooth ear piece, and a bunch of other accessories. We have separate posts for all of that goodness, which you should definitely dig through, but for now, we are focused on showing you what to expect with the new Moto X.
We have a leather back. We have a full HD display. We have a current-gen, bad boy processor. We have an upgraded 13MP camera. We have a premium metal frame. We still have Moto Maker. Motorola didn’t hold back at all with the new Moto X. This new version of last year’s phone of the year, is as good on paper as any other flagship, only it costs about $100 less.
Ready to see what you are getting? (more…)
Can you believe it? The Moto 360 is now available for sale (or will be later today) through Motorola’s site, Google Play, and Best Buy for $249.
It feels like we have been waiting forever for this to arrive (we sort of have been), but now that one is officially in house, it’s time to put it to work. We have the all-black version on-hand, so we gave it a quick unboxing and then overview/software tour. We wanted to show you how Android Wear looks and works on a circular device, what you get in the box (spoiler: a wireless charger!), and some of the special features for the 360, like its heart rate monitoring.
Ready for some 360 action? (more…)
The original Moto G quickly became Motorola’s best selling smartphone of all time, thanks to a combination of solid specs and unbeatable price. So what do you do for a follow-up to that type of success? You build a similar phone, yet upgrade it in all of the areas that current users requested.
Motorola has done that with the new Moto G by putting a bigger 5-inch display in it, 8MP camera, front facing speakers, and a micro SD slot. The swappable back covers are still available, as is the stock Android experience, so current owners of the device who are looking to upgrade should be excited.
At $179, this is still an incredible deal.
Here is a quick unboxing to show you the new Moto G. (more…)
Not only did Samsung announce its newest large-sized Galaxy Note 4 flagship this morning, but the company also unveiled the Galaxy Note Edge. The Edge is much like your usual Note product, with a large 5.6″ display, but it brings additional screen real estate with an added curved edge on its right side. (more…)
