Nexus 6 pre-orders open up on October 29! That’s the latest in the Google Play listing for this year’s Nexus phone.
Last week, Google would only tell us to expect pre-orders towards the end of October, with shipment happening at some point later in November. Now you have a specific date to mark on your calendars. (more…)
The Nexus 6 from Google and Galaxy Note 4 from Samsung are large devices. There is no getting around that. But just how large are these two handsets when sitting next to one another? Thankfully, the folks over at Carphone Warehouse have answered that question for us, posting a video of the two devices working alongside one another. (more…)
We already told you everything there is to know about the DROID TURBO outside of its price. But, because you are all ridiculously excited about this phone (can’t say I blame you either), how about another picture of it? Thanks to the supposedly-still-retired @evleaks, we have a multi-angle press render that shows the phone in both black and red, the two colors that will be available at launch. (more…)
Shortly after Google and Motorola announced the Nexus 6, AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular, and T-Mobile all confirmed that they would carry the device. T-Mobile even gave us a date of November 12 and a full retail price of $649, which matched Google’s. But what about Verizon? They have remained quiet since Wednesday, leaving many of you with questions.
We reached out to Big Red today to see what we could find out and they confirmed to us that they would be carrying the Nexus 6. (more…)
The update which went out to soak testers earlier this week is now live for all DROID MAXX, ULTRA, and Mini owners on Verizon. The update prepares the lineup of devices for Advanced Calling 1.0, aka VoLTE on Big Red’s network. (more…)
Today through October 20, Motorola is hosting a deal on the Moto X (2nd gen) for Verizon that will save you $50 on a new 2-year contract. At $49.99, you can custom make the new Moto X cheaper than any other model. Full Moto Maker customizations are available as well at no charge, outside of the Natural and Leather backs that each carry a $25 premium. Still, this is the lowest price you will likely find unless you buy it through Amazon, but then you wouldn’t be able to customize it.
If you haven’t, be sure to read our Moto X (2nd gen) review.
Motorola’s Turbo Charger is finally shipping after pre-orders first went live back in October. As you would expect, we picked up a couple to test out the supposed 8 hours of juice in 15 minutes claim that Motorola told us during the new Moto X (2nd gen) unveiling.
For those not familiar, the Turbo Charger takes advantage of Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology, which allows a depleted battery to grab a substantial amount of battery power within a few minutes. As you can imagine, being able to charge your device to a decent percentage in a few minutes could really come in handy, especially at the end of a long work day that is about to get longer. (more…)
Like Touchless Control? How about faster and more precise touchless control? If you own a newer Motorola (i.e., released within the past year or so) smartphone, you get your wish. A minor Moto Voice update is rolling out today with “improved responsiveness” for commands and “improved performance” when paired with the Moto Hint. (more…)
