Motorola is prepping a soak test for owners of the DROID Turbo, which could contain an update to Lollipop, as well as VoLTE functionality. If it is indeed Lollipop, other Turbo owners who did not receive this invite should be equally as excited, as Motorola continues to impress with their quick rollout of Android 5.0 to devices. (more…)
Motorola’s new Moto G (2nd gen) can be had on Amazon today for the ridiculously low price of $149 ($30 off). Keep in mind that that price is without a contract, so the best deal in smartphones somehow just got better than ever.
As a recap, the new Moto G sports a 5-inch HD display, stereo speakers, Snapdragon 400 processor (quad-core), 2,070mAh battery, 8MP rear camera, 1GB RAM, microSD slot with support up to 32GB cards, and has already received the update to Android 5.0 Lollipop. It doesn’t have an LTE chip, so you are stuck on US GSM networks, but you should still see pretty decent data speeds.
While this phone won’t satisfy the flagship-needy, this is a great phone for anyone not interested in signing a contract with a carrier, kids, or someone who wants an extremely affordable phone without any fuss.
With the arrival of the Nexus 6, accessory makers like Spigen are doing their best to try and win over your money by offering up whale-sized forms of protection in a variety of shapes. We happen to have all of Spigen’s Nexus 6 case line-up in house, have gone through each behind the scenes, and finally narrowed the lot down to two in particular that we wanted to highlight for you as options that would we potentially consider on our own.

Talk about a pleasant surprise on this Monday afternoon – the Nexus 6, Google’s new flagship phone that has been quite hard to acquire, is now available from US Cellular. In an even more surprising move, US Cellular seems to not only be selling the Midnight Blue model, but the Cloud White model as well, something no one else is doing outside of Motorola and Google Play.
If you are ready to attach yourself to two years of US Cellular service, you can order the Nexus 6 today for $199 (32GB) or $249 (64GB) on-contract. If you would like to avoid the contract, you can go “prepaid” and buy it outright for $660 (32GB) or $730 (64GB). But the question then becomes – is this phone unlocked and will it work on other carriers? That, we don’t know, unfortunately. (more…)
The DROID Turbo, a device we actually really like for the most part and consider to be the best “DROID” phone in a couple of years (our review), is currently included in Best Buy’s Green Monday deals. It’s still listed at $199 on-contract, but if you buy one through Best Buy, they will hand you either a $100 or $150 gift card (good luck figuring out which one they will give you). So in a way, you could be picking up the new DROID for around $50.
As a recap, the DROID Turbo sports a 5.2-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 21MP camera, 3GB RAM, and a massive 3,900mAh battery. It also runs mostly stock Android with Motorola’s useful suite of apps added on, all of which are included in the new Moto X (2nd gen). This phone, is legit. (more…)
With Android 5.0.1 and 5.0 OTA updates rolling out to most Nexus devices at this point, we wanted to make sure our Google Play Edition friends were caught up as well. The Android 5.0 updates have been rolling out to the G Pad 8.3 and Z Ultra for a couple of days now, but we are just now getting updates for the One (M7) and One (M8) after a couple of delays.
As we have done with Nexus updates for years, we have put together a list of direct downloads for you below for your Google Play Edition device. We currently do not have Moto G or Galaxy S4 updates, but will hope to add them soon. (more…)
Motorola released two Moto 360 commercials earlier in the week that were hilarious. The spots clowned the over-the-top-supposed-elegance that traditional watch commercials try to evoke, by mimicking their one-word descriptions for product design and flashing shiny pieces of the watch before tossing in something completely random, like references to booty calls and burritos.
Clearly, Motorola wasn’t done poking fun at the high-end watch market, as they released two new spots today that are equally as enjoyable. One is titled “Golf,” the other is “Holiday.” I don’t want to spoil either, so, have at them. (more…)
