Moto Z Play Review

For the Moto Z Play, being a mid-range phone that we wouldn’t typically review, we took a different approach to sharing our final thoughts on it. Hey, look, a video review from Droid Life! This should be interesting.

If you have watched the DL Show in recent weeks or follow us on Twitter, you probably know that I’ve actually become quite a big fan of this phone.

What they didn’t tell us was when we could expect to be able to buy one again. Previous rumors suggested the Galaxy Note 7 would not go back up for sale until late October, but Verizon appears to be selling the phone again right now.  (more…)

Verizon Pushes Battery Indicator Update to Galaxy Note 7, Also Adds Warning to Unsafe Models

Whether you own a new, safe Galaxy Note 7 or are holding onto the bomb-in-waiting version that was recalled, Verizon has an update for you this morning as software version VRS2APHE. The update serves two purposes, really, to turn the battery indicator green if you have a safe phone or to splash warnings all over the phone should you have a potentially unsafe version.  (more…)
