Buy unlocked phones. Please. If you want software updates the quickest, this is your best bet. It’s also going to aid in shutting up Apple
tools fans in the future, but that’s not what this is about. This is about you getting updates to the newest versions of Android the fastest, so that you can experience new features and have the latest security patches. This is about you not bitching in comments across the web. This is about you not wondering 8 months from now, “What’s new in Marshmallow?” This is about you not having to deal with companies cutting off your phone’s software support in less than a year. This is probably about freedom, or something. Toss in a “‘Merica!” as well, because why not. (more…)
If you own the Moto X (2nd Gen) “Pure Edition,” which also happens to be model XT1095, you should head into Settings and check for an update right now. I did, as did a couple of our readers, and we are seeing the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Just look at that image above for proof. (more…)
Amazon does deals of the day that are often easily ignored. Today’s deal, is not one of those deals. For today only, Amazon has slashed $100 off the Moto X Pure Edition with 32GB of storage, dropping it down to $349.
For $349, you get a phone that is easily in the top 3 of 2015. Just a month ago, we called it one of the 3 best phones you can buy today. We also gave you 5 reasons to buy the Moto X Pure Edition a couple of weeks ago as well, in case you were still hesitating. Oh, our Moto X Pure review is worth a look too.
The black or white standard models with 32GB storage at $349 (down from $449). The white and bamboo model is $375.
So this photo surfaced today. People think it’s the next Moto X, which could be the Moto X (2016) or Moto X (4th Gen) or Moto X (Pure Moods Edition). We don’t really know what it is, though. It could be fake. Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if it is fake. Should we talk about it, if it is fake? Eh, why not. It’s Hump Day! (more…)
Motorola is gearing up Cyber Monday, like everyone else on the Interwebz, detailing the deals you can expect to see on its website. Right now, Motorola lists three deals that you can look forward to, but we do hope to see additional deals come Monday.
Kicking it off is 25% off a Moto X (2nd Gen) 64GB, bringing the price down from $399 to $299. This deal can be had from within Moto Maker, where you can choose how to customize the device to your liking. Naturally, if you choose for more expensive custom options, your price will go up. (more…)
According to Motorola’s David Schuster, they have begun the approval process for the Moto X Pure Edition Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. If all goes well there, the phone should receive the update within the “next few weeks.”
The note about the status of the Moto X Pure’s update came during an announcement that Motorola is already starting to push the Android 6.0 update to Brazilian variants of the Moto X Style (the Pure for Brazil) and the Moto X (2nd gen). The update will rollout slowly to those phones over the next few weeks. (more…)
For those in need of a good deal, you can grab a Moto X (2nd Gen) on Amazon for just $199. There are currently three options available to purchase – 16GB with Black Leather back, 16GB with Black Soft Touch back, and 16GB White front with Bamboo wood back. The devices are new, meaning you won’t open the box to find a used, refurbished phone inside. (more…)
I don’t really know how to start this other than by repeating the title of this post – Motorola, what the hell is going on with you? I ask, because the current Motorola is so far removed from the revived Motorola we had really become to enjoy again over the last couple of years. Sure, that lovable Motorola was created in part by Google and the team of executives they put in place to run it and we now have new ownership in Lenovo, but who would have thought that things would have gotten this ugly this quickly under the China electronics giant.
