We already told you everything there is to know about the DROID TURBO outside of its price. But, because you are all ridiculously excited about this phone (can’t say I blame you either), how about another picture of it? Thanks to the supposedly-still-retired @evleaks, we have a multi-angle press render that shows the phone in both black and red, the two colors that will be available at launch. (more…)
Shortly after Google and Motorola announced the Nexus 6, AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular, and T-Mobile all confirmed that they would carry the device. T-Mobile even gave us a date of November 12 and a full retail price of $649, which matched Google’s. But what about Verizon? They have remained quiet since Wednesday, leaving many of you with questions.
We reached out to Big Red today to see what we could find out and they confirmed to us that they would be carrying the Nexus 6. (more…)
Today through October 20, Motorola is hosting a deal on the Moto X (2nd gen) for Verizon that will save you $50 on a new 2-year contract. At $49.99, you can custom make the new Moto X cheaper than any other model. Full Moto Maker customizations are available as well at no charge, outside of the Natural and Leather backs that each carry a $25 premium. Still, this is the lowest price you will likely find unless you buy it through Amazon, but then you wouldn’t be able to customize it.
If you haven’t, be sure to read our Moto X (2nd gen) review.
Motorola’s Turbo Charger is finally shipping after pre-orders first went live back in October. As you would expect, we picked up a couple to test out the supposed 8 hours of juice in 15 minutes claim that Motorola told us during the new Moto X (2nd gen) unveiling.
For those not familiar, the Turbo Charger takes advantage of Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology, which allows a depleted battery to grab a substantial amount of battery power within a few minutes. As you can imagine, being able to charge your device to a decent percentage in a few minutes could really come in handy, especially at the end of a long work day that is about to get longer. (more…)
Like Touchless Control? How about faster and more precise touchless control? If you own a newer Motorola (i.e., released within the past year or so) smartphone, you get your wish. A minor Moto Voice update is rolling out today with “improved responsiveness” for commands and “improved performance” when paired with the Moto Hint. (more…)
Yesterday, during the madness that was Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and Lollipop day, we put together a quick comparison of the new Google phone to its predecessors. The point was to show how far we have come over the years, both in terms of specs, price, and size. But what about the rest of the smartphone world? How does the Nexus 6 stack up to the new iPhones (6 and 6 Plus), Galaxy Note 4, Moto X, LG G3, Galaxy S5, and HTC One (M8)? Well, we have that info for you below in one of our classic charts. (more…)
New Nexus days are always exciting in the Android universe, as users get a peek as to what Google’s vision for Android truly is at that select point in time. It has evolved quite significantly over the past few years, and we think the Nexus 6 is a fine addition to the family of Nexus devices.
The Nexus 6 features monster specs, packing a 5.96″ QHD display (2560 x 1440), Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 13MP rear-facing camera with OIS, 2MP front-facing camera, 3220mAh battery, and runs the latest version of Android, Android 5.0 Lollipop.
For the 32GB model, full retail price is listed at $649, while the 64GB model is priced at $699. While these full retail prices might seem high when compared to past Nexus devices such as the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5, Google looks to have done their absolute best when working with Motorola to deliver a truly premium Android experience. And of course, the device will be available on all four major US carriers at a subsidized price. With that said, it’s not like you absolutely have to shell out $649+ for a new phone.
One question remains, are you buying one?
