Here Comes Android 5.1 for the Moto X (2nd Gen) on AT&T

Funny story here. AT&T just updated their Moto X (1st gen) support page to show that the device is getting an update to Android 5.1 starting today. While that would be fine and all, we have to point out that it appears they updated the wrong page. The Moto X (2nd gen) is actually the phone getting the update. Why would we say that? Well, because the “Verifying the Update” section on the support page details a phone under codename “victara,” which is the 2nd generation Moto X. The 1st generation Moto X actually carries the codename “ghost.”  (more…)

Tuesday Poll: What’s the Perfect Smartphone Display Size?

Last year, we posed this same question, asking which display size our community preferred. Taking a look at the results, we find that the majority of our readers prefer a 4.6″-5″ display, with the aforementioned range dominating the field at 55%.

Interestingly enough, we asked that question before the release of Shamu, aka the Nexus 6, with its 6″ display. Now, with that device and other phones available with monstrous-sized displays, we should see a different outcome to the same question, given that we surely do have a few Nexus fans here.

As for me personally, I like an easily manageable 5″ display size. If I need something more, I’ll just grab a tablet. I don’t want to stretch my fingers anymore than I have to.

For this poll, select your preferred display size range, then comment below with your perfect size. If you see your size posted already in the comments, vote it up.

I know that hiding is much different than uninstalling or removing, but at least you can shrink down that ever-growing list of watches on your watch to those that you actually like.  (more…)
