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 →

First Apple Mobile Phone Ever

A blast from the past: The iPhone wasn’t Apple’s first effort with mobile phones

A blast from the past: The iPhone wasn’t Apple’s first effort with mobile phones

We all know the story of how Apple completely changed the mobile phone industry with the introduction of the iPhone in 2007. However, this wasn’t Apple’s first attempt at cracking the mobile phone market — a post over at Reddit’s Apple fan page reminds us that Apple and Motorola teamed up to release an “iTunes phone” back in 2005, just two years before Apple released its own game-changing smartphone.

The Boy Genius Report: Nexus 6 review

Google’s tradition of releasing a brand new flagship Nexus phone every year isn’t stopping, and the company has come an incredibly long way since the original Nexus One. The latest iteration is the Nexus 6 with, yes, a gorgeous six-inch display. It’s manufactured by Motorola and was codenamed “Shamu” for a good reason — it’s monstrously huge and just feels like it’s going to slap you with its dorsal fin.

This is one of the most well-manufactured, technology-packed, volcano-luging, shark-diving phones I’ve ever used. But is it the best of the best or the best of the worst? More →

Europeans won’t be able to get one of the year’s best Android phones

The Droid Turbo is Motorola’s latest flagship device — and one of its best ones yet — but not many international buyers will be able to get their hands on one. Exclusive to Verizon in the U.S., the Droid Turbo will be sold as the Moto Maxx in certain Central and South American markets, but that doesn’t mean the handset is coming to Europe as well. More →

10-minute video takes an in-depth look at Android 5.0 on the world’s best Android phone

By on November 10, 2014 at 10:15 AM.

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 →

Android 5.0 Lollipop

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 Droid Turbo Review

Droid Turbo review: Motorola had to leave Google to become the king of Android

Droid Turbo review: Motorola had to leave Google to become the king of Android

By on November 5, 2014 at 10:50 AM.

The past few years have been crazy for Motorola. After the iPhone rocked the cell phone industry in 2007, Motorola was among the first companies to respond effectively, and it found success in the U.S. market when it launched the Droid with Verizon Wireless in late 2009. No companies were ready for Samsung and the double-digit billions it was prepared to spend on marketing in order to take over the Android market, however, and Motorola’s mobile phone business didn’t stand a chance.

Things seemed like they might turn around when Motorola Mobility was acquired by Google in 2011, but the company still couldn’t manage to set its devices apart from the crowd in any meaningful way. The Motorola division continued to lose money for Google until it was finally sold off to Lenovo in 2014.

While it remains to be seen whether or not Lenovo will help turn Motorola into a profitable cell phone company once again, there is no question that the once-great company hit its stride in 2014. In fact, Motorola’s latest Android phones are the best Android phones on the planet.
