Moto X Android Lollipop Update

Android 5.0 hits the world’s best Android phone from the nation’s top carrier

Android 5.0 hits the world’s best Android phone from the nation’s top carrier

Now this is an interesting development. Rarely do you see a fresh new Android update reach a carrier-branded smartphone before the update is even finished rolling out to “pure Google” devices. Even more rare is a scenario where a Verizon Wireless smartphone is among the first handsets in the world to be updated to the latest and greatest version of Android.

It just so happens that the stars were aligned perfectly on Monday evening, however, and the world’s best Android phone was updated to Android 5.0 at the nation’s top wireless carrier. More →

The holidays are almost here: These are the best smartphones you can buy

By on November 25, 2014 at 12:30 PM.

Back at the start of the year after Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S5, I suggested that smartphone fans might be in for another boring year in 2014. In some ways, 2014 was boring; we really didn’t see anything that introduced truly novel or revolutionary new features added to smartphones this year. But phones still progressed in 2014, growing faster, sleeker and more powerful than they have ever been before, and there were some terrific phones that launched this year.

As we move into the holiday shopping season, here are the five best high-end smartphones you can buy. More →

Moto X Moto G Android 5.0 Lollipop

You can get Lollipop on one of 2014’s best Android phones right now

You can get Lollipop on one of 2014’s best Android phones right now

It’s a happy day for Motorola fans as the company has just announced that three of its newest devices are being updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop this week, including the “Pure Edition” of one of the year’s best smartphones, the 2014 version of the Moto X. The Pure Edition is the version of the device that runs on stock Android and doesn’t have the awesome software features that we loved so much in our review of the device, so it’s not surprising that it would get Android 5.0 faster than the standard version of the 2014 Moto X.

There’s no reason to beat around the bush: Android 5.0 Lollipop is the best thing to happen to Google’s mobile platform in years. In fact, it might be the best thing to happen to Android since Google first introduced Google Now. On top of performance and battery life improvements, Lollipop brings a huge visual redesign to Android that propels the platform into the future with a bold new look characterized by bright colors, subtle shadows and design guidelines that third-party developers will use to dramatically improve the user interfaces in their apps.

And now, thanks to a big leak, the world gets its first in-depth look at this major update running on the best Android handset on the planet. More →

Leak: This is what Android 5.0 Lollipop looks like on the world’s best Android phone

Leak: This is what Android 5.0 Lollipop looks like on the world’s best Android phone

When we reviewed Motorola’s second-generation Moto X back in September, we called it the best Android phone in the world. Of course, a lot has changed since then. Bigger phones have been released. Faster phones have been released. More powerful phones have been released. In fact, Motorola itself launched a smartphone last week that fits all three of those criteria. What hasn’t been released, however, is a better smartphone. The Moto X offers a size, shape, display, interface, price and user experience that are ideal for the widest range of smartphone users looking for a high-end phone. And soon, it will also offer Android 5.0.

Motorola promised a speedy update to Lollipop for its latest phones and now, a new leak reveals Google’s new Android 5.0 Lollipop software running on the second-generation Moto X. More →

Motorola boss says people will stop buying devices like the iPhone 6 soon

When you look at the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus sales figures, it’s hard to believe that the high-end smartphone business is drying up, but that’s exactly what Motorola President Rick Osterloh argued in an interview with Re/code earlier this month.

“The days of the $600-$700 smartphone are numbered,” Osterloh told Re/code. “People are realizing they don’t need to pay that much money.” More →

Google’s next Nexus smartphone might be a bigger version of the amazing Moto X

Motorola’s 2014 Moto X model may be considered the best Android phone currently available in stores by some people, but there’s a way the handset can get even better. 9to5Google has learned from sources familiar with the matter that the Motorola Shamu – the codename for the Nexus 6, or Nexus X as it’s been called lately – will be Google’s first phablet model, featuring a 5.92-inch display. Furthermore, the device is “basically going to be a scaled up second-generation Moto X with minor tweaks to make the larger screen easier to use.” More →

Great news: You won’t have to worry about the iPhone 6 bending like the 6 Plus

When reports of the iPhone 6 Plus warping under pressure began to spread earlier this week, many users became concerned about the durability of their brand new devices. Once Lewis Hilsenteger of Unbox Therapy released a video of himself bending the iPhone 6 Plus with his bare hands, #BendGate (or as we prefer to called it, “Bent-gazi”) started trending all over social media.

Here are Motorola’s first ads for the red-hot new Moto X

BGR reviewed the new Moto X earlier on Tuesday and to say that we were impressed is an understatement. In fact, we not only called the Moto X the best Android phone in the world but we also said that “when it comes to the user experience, no phone we’ve come across can match Motorola’s brand new Moto X.” This is indeed high praise and now Motorola is giving the world its own take on why you should pick up its newest flagship phone in a series of new ads flagged by Droid Life.
