Android 5.0 Features

Android 5.0 will bring one of the new Moto X’s coolest features to all Android phones

When we reviewed Motorola’s new Moto X last month, we didn’t mince words. All things considered, the second-generation Moto X was and still is the best Android phone on the planet. The customization options are unparalleled, the hardware and build quality are top notch, the display is beautiful and the performance is impressive. It really is the total package. The best things about the Moto X may be the great voice controls and other convenience enhancements Motorola added to Android on the Moto X, and now one of the coolest features from the Moto X is apparently coming to all top Android phones in Google’s new Android 5.0 Lollipop update.

This is one ‘problem’ Apple is happy to have

Apple on Monday announced record results for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014, with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus having played a crucial role despite being available in stores for only 10 days during the period. The company sold more than 10 million units during launch weekend, and that doesn’t even include China. The phones were released in the largest market in the world about a month later, where they were met with huge demand, with many buyers purchasing the phablet version, according to unofficial estimates.

Following its previous reports that largely said the same thing, Digitimes is again saying that Apple is going to increase iPhone 6 Plus manufacturing volumes in order to “satisfy strong demand from China.” More →

You might not be able to find an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus in stores this Christmas

In case you’re planning to buy an iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus for yourself or a special someone this Christmas, you should consider placing an order as fast as possible, to actually be able to have it shipped, wrapped, and neatly hidden underneath a Christmas tree. Otherwise, finding an iPhone 6, and especially iPhone 6 Plus, in stores right before Christmas is something less likely to happen, as Apple is selling everything it can manufacture. Tim Cook said during Apple’s Q4 conference call that the company can’t determine yet whether supply will meet demand this quarter. More →
