In a recent post to Google+, Motorola’s David Schuster states that soak tests for Moto X (1st and 2nd Gen) devices are currently rolling out in select markets, and that if all goes well, a broader rollout should come next week. (more…)
Whoa. $440 for a brand new 32GB Nexus 6? You may want to jump on this deal at eBay before the “limited quantity” is gone. The deal has been live for a couple of hours, and with that price, it may not last long.
This is version XT1103, which is the US model that will work on every major carrier here. It comes in a factory sealed package and in midnight blue.
At $440, you are looking at a discount of $210 off the original $650 price. Granted, Google has slashed the price to $500 in recent weeks, so the discount isn’t quite as good as it would have been a month ago. Still, $60 is $60.
Free shipping is included.
Motorola just announced a limited-time deal on the Moto X (2nd gen) that gets you the phone for $299 (after $50 rebate), but also lets you try it for up to 30 days “risk free.” They are attaching this deal to the idea of people buying phones without a contract, so if you buy any of their models without signing a contract through a carrier, you get it for as little as $299.

The DROID Turbo still doesn’t have Lollipop. You knew that, of course, because Motorola told us yesterday that the update is still in the lab going through final testing. Still, that hasn’t stopped Verizon from updating its Turbo listings and support pages to show that the phone probably should have had Android 5.0.2 or 5.1 at some point within the last week. (more…)
You know how much we love Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology, right? Using a Turbo Charger on the Moto X (2nd gen), then Nexus 6 and Galaxy S6 and now LG G4, has been game-changing in our eyes. Quickly charging phones, especially ones that can’t seem to figure out how to last through an entire day, is the type of innovation that changes the way you use your phone – in a good way, of course.
Unfortunately, many of the Quick Charge 2.0 or “Turbo Chargers” made by manufacturers, like Motorola, are never cheap. They charge a premium for this little guys. The 3rd party, random brands, offer inexpensive chargers, but I’ve always felt that you never know exactly what you are getting yourself into with those and tend to stick with those made by the big dogs.
And that brings us to today’s deal on Groupon. The Motorola Turbo Charger can be had for $9.99! This tank typically runs $35, so we are talking a 70% discount on an official, brand new Motorola Turbo Charger. You know what to do.
A rumor floating about the interwebs over the last week suggested that the DROID Turbo would finally receive its update to Lollipop yesterday, June 10. That didn’t happen, obviously, but Verizon was clearly, at one point, thinking that June 10 sounded like a good idea because last night, they updated the specs for the Turbo to show that the phone runs Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. There are a couple of things to talk about here. (more…)
American owners of the Moto X (1st Gen) may now start getting a bit excited. According to Motorola employee David Schuster, who posts quite often on the Motorola update process on Google+, if all goes well with an upcoming soak test (slated to release later this week), a full rollout of Lollipop should start up the following week.

With zero offense meant to Motorola, given that the company is known for making fantastic hardware as a whole, the cameras found in its flagship devices, notably the Moto X (1st Gen and 2nd Gen), have been rather unpleasant to use during most shooting circumstances. Even though Motorola has worked hard to update its camera software via firmware updates and camera app updates, the shooters just aren’t all that good when compared to other offerings on the market.
