Droid Life Q&A Sessions: Volume 32

We have IFA all this week, so Android fans best be ready for a ton of fun announcements from companies such as Motorola, Huawei, and Samsung. We sort of already know what to expect from each player, mostly being Android Wear-related, but we are also getting close to Google’s likely unveiling of two Nexus devices.

The Q&A Sessions are your chance to ask us anything that might be on your, whether it be Android-related, non Android-related, and everything in between.

Shoot those questions below in the comment section, and then on Friday, our team will choose the best ones to tackle.

To see all of our previous Q&A’s, check them out here.

Moto 360 Can Pair With Android Wear on iOS After All

Google just announced that Android Wear had come to iOS, while also introducing the Apple users of the world to this concept called choice. But along with that announcement, they mentioned that only the LG Watch Urbane, plus a bunch of soon-to-be-released watches were capable of working with iOS at this time, not any older Android Wear devices like the Moto 360. That (unsurprisingly) bummed a number of you out.

To make sure that Google wasn’t fibbing on us a bit, we decided to see if we could pair a Moto 360 with an iPhone on the new Android Wear iOS app. Turns out, it worked! Look!  (more…)

Blackberry Venice…This Thing Right Here

The Blackberry Venice, a phone coupled with a slideout physical keyboard and mostly-stock Android, has fanboys of tech giggling like little boys who found their penis for the first time. It’s a keyboard! Like, the ones from back in the day on terrible smartphones that had good keyboards, but there is this thing called Android with it too! BEST. OF. ALL. WORLDS. I loved 2005!

Seriously, though, I haven’t seen this level of nerd hype since…I got nothing. But yeah, it’s everywhere right now, especially thanks to a massive leak out of Tinhte(more…)

Android Wear Comes to iOS (Updated)

The day has finally come, and the potential Android Wear customer base has now grown exponentially. Starting this week, Android Wear works on iOS, with all many of the same features that Android users get. It has the Google Now cards, a few native applications, fitness tracking, and more.

Supported iPhones (iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, or 6 Plus running iOS 8.2+) will be able to access all of the same helpful information Android users see, with the exception to the vast array of custom watch faces found on Google Play. Google states there will be a curated set of 3rd-party faces that are usable, but for now, your choices seem somewhat limited.  (more…)

Leaks Show Moto 360 (2nd Gen) Press Pics, Supposed Moto 360 “Sport”

Oh the hype is so real right now. IFA kicks off this week in Berlin and we are expecting to be consumed by a new wave of Android Wear smartwatches. Previous reports have suggested that Motorola, Huawei, ASUS, and LG will all unveil new Android Wear products, a couple of which we think we know about.

Motorola is probably at the top of the list, thanks to the popularity amongst Android enthusiasts over their original Moto 360. I think it’s safe to say that we all want to see the 2nd gen Moto 360 sooner than later. Through a batch of leaked press renders over the weekend, we have some clean new looks to chat about.  (more…)
