I remember fondly when the word phablet became a thing...though I wish I didn't have to ever think about it. In fact, I had almost forgotten that it was a thing...until Lenovo announced the PHAB Plus, its entry into the huge phone game.

Here's the deal: it's got a 6.8-inch display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615, 2GB of RAM, and 13MP/5MP cameras. Like its outdated specs, it's also running Android 5.0 - perfect for those who want to re-live late 2014 all over again. Ah, the memories.

[Deal, I Guess] Grab An Amazon Fire Phone For $125 With Free Shipping, Still Comes With One Year Of Prime

Amazon Has The Moto X Pure Edition Up For Pre-Order If You Don't Want To Customize It

Earlier today, Motorola opened pre-orders for the 2015 Pure Edition Moto X. If you don't really care about Moto Maker or customization at all, then Amazon is the way to go - if you're a Prime member you'll get yours just a couple of days after release. It's slated to be released on the 9th of this month, so you'll most likely be one of the first to get your hands on Moto's newest flagship.

It's available in both 16GB and 32GB variants, with three color schemes for each: black, white, and white with a bamboo back. The plain color models (black and white) are both $399 for 16GB and $449 for 32GB, with the bamboo model coming it at $25 more.

Acer Also Showed Off A Predator 'Gaming Phone' At IFA Today

Earlier today, Acer announced a bunch of stuff, including a new gaming tablet called Predator 8. Well, it turns out that it wasn't finished with the mobile gaming stuff, because it also showed off the Predator 6 - a freakin' gaming phone.

I knew eventually I'd have to say those two words right next to each other. I just knew it.

Anyway, yeah. Like its larger brother, it's got quad front speakers, virtual surround sound, and controller-like haptic feedback. Other details are pretty scarce at the moment, but we do know it has 4GB of RAM, a 6-inch display (as its name suggests), and an unnamed deca-core Mediatek processor (most likely a Helio).
