This month, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 from Samsung will finally hit the States. When launched, this line of devices was only available overseas, but it looks as though America was in need of even bigger phones. The Galaxy Mega features a whopping 6.3″ HD display (720 x 1280), plus a dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz. The specs won’t put it up against this year’s flagship devices, but it is the perfect phone for the phablet lovers out there. (more…)

Now that the Moto X is official, priced, and ready to arrive on the five major U.S. wireless carriers, it’s our job to try and figure out if this “mid-range” device with its premium price tag and handful of tricks is worth every penny that Motorola thinks it is. We know that you have all seen the spec sheet – it tells a story of a device that certainly can’t compete on paper with the Galaxy S4 and HTC One. But that’s not what Motorola cares about. They want to win you over with a customized phone assembled in the U.S. that runs as smooth as butter, has a simple approach to Android, and carries a set of features that should make your life easier without confusing or overwhelming anyone.
After dedicating my life to the phone since it was handed to me at Motorola’s press festivities on August 1, I think I have plenty of thoughts to share on all of that. It’s time to talk Clear Pixel camera. It’s time to talk 720p vs. 1080p display. It’s time to talk performance. And most importantly, it’s time to talk about that damn price. Let’s do this. (more…)
Bootloaders and the Moto X, what is really going on here? Yesterday, we were told that the bootloader on the phone is “not unlocked,” but with so many variants, did that statement mean from all of them? Apparently not. According to Punit Soni, Motorola’s VP Product Management, the bootloader status all hinges on the carrier, assuming it’s not a developer edition. Let me explain. (more…)
Assuming you are ready to fork out $199 on contract for the Moto X, or maybe even buy it off contract, you probably want to know when and where you can do such a thing. In the list below, we’ve got the official word from each carrier. The big five in the U.S. will all carry some form of the Moto X, so you should have no problems finding it once it becomes available.

This morning, Google announced the availability of Google Wallet for new Android devices. The newly approved devices are Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and Galaxy Note 2, along with the HTC One on Sprint. US Cellular also got some love, as their Galaxy S4 is also now compatible with the mobile wallet service. (more…)
