Aukey Made a 10,000mAh Quick Charge 2.0 Battery Pack and It’s Pretty Sweet

Quick Charge 2.0! Fast Charging! Turbo Charging! I can imagine you want me to shut up about it at this point. Even I’m getting sick of talking about. OK, not really, but before we start to calm down with our excitement over charging phones faster than ever, we wanted to point out Aukey’s new 10,000mAh battery pack that supports all of that fastness. Yes, you really can get the same burst of Quick Charge 2.0 speed through a portable battery pack.   (more…)

Motorola’s Selfie Stick Isn’t Real, But Their 1-Day $140 Off Moto X Deal Is

Motorola went super silly last night with their custom Selfie Sticks, an obvious April Fools’ joke that is worth a chuckle or two. But buried inside that custom made debauchery, they are also hosting a 1-day deal on the Moto X that will save you $140. Now, I know that the Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 will be here next week, so this may be a difficult sell. Still, you are looking at under $400 for a phone that was the best of 2014.

Motorola Teases Red Leather, Possibly for Moto X (2nd Gen) or Moto 360

On Twitter and Instagram, Motorola is asking folks what their favorite Red Leather to-go item is, followed by “We’ve got a little something in the works.”

Deals: New Unlocked Moto X Developer Edition or LG G2 for $199 and $189

If a phone is almost two years old, but can be had for an insanely cheap price, is it worth considering? Maybe as a device to tinker with? Maybe as a phone for a teenager? Maybe you broke your current phone and need something to hold you over until the Galaxy S6 drops? Or maybe you just like hoarding smartphones. Whatever the reason, we have two to look at today – Moto X (2013) Developer Edition at $199, and the LG G2 at $189.

Both phones come unlocked and should work just fine on AT&T with 4G LTE. Each is brand new, comes in original packaging, and were two of the best smartphones of their time when initially released in 2013. Still today, they should perform just fine for an average user.

Each phone also comes with free shipping. Think about it.

Motorola Adds “Chop Twice for Flashlight” Action in Android 5.1 on Moto X

Hold on tight, Moto X (2nd gen) owners, you are about to chop your way into quick flashlight action with Android 5.1. Through the most recent Lollipop update that started rolling out to the “Pure Edition” at the end of last week, Motorola tossed in a new “chop twice for flashlight” option in Moto Actions. We a ctually thought this feature was being added to the Android 5.0 update for the Moto X that came out back in November – at least Verizon said it was included – but it is now official in the 5.1 update that is rolling out as of Friday.  (more…)
