The new (and thoroughly leaked) Motorola devices are expected to be announced at Lenovo Tech World in just a few days, but there's still time for leaking. Evan "@evleaks" Blass has posted images of the Verizon-bound Droid variants of the new Moto flagship, as well as the modular back plates previously rumored as Amps and now known as "MotoMods."

In a move sure to piss off owners of the 2014 Moto X on Verizon, the carrier has released a Marshmallow update for the Droid Maxx 2. There was a fair amount of speculation as to whether the phone would get an update to Google's latest OS considering that the device never landed on Motorola's official list. Alas, Verizon and the OEM seem to have come through. Read More
Since the DROID series remains a Verizon exclusive more than six years after the original QWERTY model hit shelves, the DROID Turbo 2 is Verizon's de facto flagship phone, in so much as no one else can use it. So those customers who have spent their money on the modified version of the Moto X will be glad to know that a Marshmallow update is fast approaching. For a lucky few, it's available now: the "soak test," a closed alpha for Motorola firmware, has begun. Read More
Verizon and Motorola assert that the new DROID Turbo 2's screen is shatterproof. According to a video from CNN, there might be something to that claim. In the clip, the phone suffers numerous falls from varying heights against different surfaces, gets run over by a bicycle, and meets the underside of a horse's hoof. And sure enough, it doesn't shatter. Read More
Verizon and Motorola are announcing the latest entries in their long-running DROID series in Chicago today. The DROID Turbo 2 is the new flagship, and its "shatter-proof" screen is the clear highlight, but the partners also announced an updated version of the popular DROID Maxx from 2013. The new DROID Maxx 2 is a mid-range device that shares a lot of design DNA with the Moto X Play revealed earlier this year. Read More
The DROID Turbo is the most powerful phone in Motorola's lineup (tied with the larger Nexus 6 for most of its specs), and it's Verizon's exclusive flagship in the United States. It's also running Android KitKat, as it has been since launch, well after all of the other manufacturers have upgraded their leading phones to Android 5.0 at the very least. Motorola executives promised an upgrade straight to Android 5.1... over two months ago.
So it's safe to say that owners of the DROID Turbo, or at least those who want to run the latest version of Android on their premium phones, are a bit ticked. Read More
I used the DROID MAXX for more than a year. It is, hands-down, one of my favorite Android devices. If you're looking for a good deal on a fantastic phone that's a little past its prime, you can't do better than Woot.com's current Electronics section promotion. The Amazon subsidiary is offering the Motorola DROID MAXX in refurbished form for $179.99, a little less than $500 off of the original retail price.
The description says that this is a "Droid Ultra Maxx," but based on the battery spec it's the higher-end DROID MAXX, not the DROID Ultra.
If it's been a while since you've looked at Motorola's 2013 line, then think of the DROID MAXX as a spruced-up version of the original Moto X. Read More
Pity the poor Verizon customer, whose options for user-moddable Android phones are more limited than any other US carrier. It's particularly cruel, then, that Verizon tends to get some awesome Motorola exclusives in the DROID line. 2014's entry is the DROID Turbo, which is basically the Nexus 6 crammed down into the 5.2-inch body of the second-gen Moto X, plus the usual DROID Kevlar styling and an enormous 3900mAh battery. Oh, and a locked bootloader that makes root and custom ROMs difficult.
But as often happens with high-profile, locked-down phones, someone has found a way around it. Someone associated with the Disekt computer security team has released a tool called MOFOROOT, which was updated to work with the DROID Turbo yesterday. Read More
Update: According to this tweet from Moto Firmware, the DROID Turbo will launch on October 30th (two days after the announcement) and some retailers already have the phone in stock. The source is anonymous, so consider it rumor for now.
Do you appreciate the Nexus 6's bombastic hardware specs, but wish they came in a more compact form factor? Do you like the size of the Moto X 2014, and appreciate Motorola's software enhancements on top of Android? And perhaps most crucially, do you want (or need) to use Verizon, and are you OK with the carrier's standard excessive bloatware and "screw you" attitude towards customers vis-à-vis locked bootloaders?

Our friends over at Android Central have apparently gotten their hands on some marketing materials for the upcoming Droid Turbo for Verizon. They confirm much of the information that was already leaked, and also add a few new tidbits for you to chew on. As expected, this phone is packing some crazy hardware.
The screen is 5.2-inches, which we already knew, but this new info places the resolution at QHD (2560x1440). The screen technology is still unknown—the Moto X is AMOLED as were last year's Droids, but Samsung is the only OEM that has used a QHD AMOLED so far. Read More
