There are many interesting things about the Moto Z devices presented yesterday, ultra-thin handsets that bring modularity to Motorola’s lineup of mobile products. One of them is the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack, which absolutely nobody noticed during the event.

Hands on with Lenovo’s PHAB2 Pro, the phone that brings Project Tango to life

It’s not often that a smartphone surprises me any more.

I’ve been writing for BGR for nearly three years now, and in that span, I’ve seen more smartphones than I can count. They all begin to blend together eventually, but every once in a while, one will stand out from the crowd.

Lenovo’s PHAB2 Pro is one of those phones.

Lenovo and Google are about to blow the lid off digital indoor mapping

Navigation apps are some of my most frequently used mobile apps. But Google Maps, Apple Maps, and all the other maps apps out there can only do so much: They’ll get you to your destination with high accuracy, as long as you don’t have to find your way somewhere indoors. That’s where things can quickly go sour.

Navigating a crowded shopping mall, finding your loved ones in a museum abroad, or simply locating your favorite toothpaste in a new shop might be problematic and there’s no navigation app to help out. At least not yet.

But Google, whose Google Maps is one of the best outdoors navigation apps you can think of, is working on it. And Lenovo is there to help. More →

Hands on with 9 brand new devices just announced by Lenovo

Lenovo made a splash at CES 2016, announcing several computing devices worth checking out such as tablets, quirky mobile accessories and new laptops. The company isn’t done, however, and it’s ready to make the most of MWC 2016. Lenovo might not have a “next big thing” to take on the Galaxy S7 and LG G5 today, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore the company. Its brand new products are catered towards buyers looking for hot tech on a tighter budget, which is definitely not a bad agenda, and they all pack quite a punch in terms of performance.

In total, Lenovo is taking the wraps off no less than nine new products at MWC, including two smartphones, three tablets and four notebooks, each one hiding a few gems under the hood. More →
