The last time we spoke specifically about the Moto G (2nd Gen), it was when Motorola announced back in October that a Marshmallow update would eventually be made available for the device. Now, in March of 2016, the time has come for owners of the Moto G (2nd Gen) in the US to install the update. (more…)
The Moto G (3rd gen), a phone that at its price point is almost impossible to beat, is now cheaper than ever, thanks to a short-term deal over at Motorola’s store. From today through March 7, you can buy the Moto G (3rd gen) for $199 without a contract. The deal includes the 16GB version that has 2GB RAM and normally carriers a price of $220. So yeah, you get a $20 discount.
We reviewed the 3rd gen G and told you to run to Motorola’s site as fast as your little virtual legs can go and buy it if your budget is $200. It’s a heck of a value that features top notch performance, excellent battery life, and custom options through Moto Maker. Even after almost a year, it still should be a solid budget option, unless you have another $70 or so to push towards a Nexus 5X. Ooh, decisions. (more…)
On February 12, Verizon posted information to its DROID Turbo 2 support pages suggesting that the phone was set to receive the update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Within a couple of hours, they pulled that info as if someone had pulled the trigger on that information a bit early. Then on Friday, a number of our readers notified us that they were taking part in a soak test for the update through Motorola’s Feedback Network, which is typically a sign that we are actually close to an update rollout. Today, Verizon has once again posted details of the update, along with a March 1 date of availability. (more…)
If you own the Moto X Pure Edition, feel free to jump into your Settings menu and check for an update in the About phone section. You should one there in the form of system version 24.201.3, which is still Android 6.0, but does include February 1, 2016 security patches.
The update is just over 6MB in size.
As far as we know, that’s it for the update. Should we find new goodies, we’ll be sure to update this post. (more…)
Within the last couple of weeks, you told us what you thought about LG and HTC at the moment, how they could win you over, and if their next phones are even on your radar. Today, we move onto Motorola and ask that you share with us your thoughts on whether or not 2016 could be an exciting year for the Lenovo-owned smartphone maker. (more…)
