Motorola Sued For $5 Million Over Poor Warranty Support

When you buy an expensive electronic device with a warranty, you hope you never have to use said warranty. It's always at least somewhat of a pain. For many Motorola customers, the process has been worse than that. We've been seeing an unusual number of complaints about Motorola's warranty support lately, and it looks like it might finally be coming back to bite the company. A $5 million class action complaint has been filed because of Moto's ongoing warranty issues.

According To Analyst Firm TrendForce, Samsung Shipped Twice As Many Smartphones In Q1 2016 Than Apple

When it comes to analyst firms, there are very few that I trust and even then, I rather look at all of their numbers and compare them together to get a better picture of the global smartphone market. TrendForce hasn't been on my radar — it could be very accurate, it could be all over the place. So I am going to tell you to take its report and numbers with a grain of salt, although the results couldn't be that far off.

So, according to TrendForce, Samsung shipped twice as many smartphones in Q1 2016 as Apple. I'll give you a few seconds to master your shock face and then a couple of minutes to cool off after screaming and celebrating / revolting and breaking everything around.

Alleged Moto G Fourth-Gen Leaked Photos Show A Fingerprint Reader

Everything old is new again. If you'll recall, Motorola (before it was gobbled up by Google, then Lenovo) was one of the first Android manufacturers to use a fingerprint sensor. Oddly, they've now become one of the last hold-outs after more reliable technology has made mobile sensors much better. According to a few spy shots of what looks like a new Moto G redesign posted at NowhereElse.fr, Motorola thinks it's just about time to bring them back.

A Bunch Of Xiaomi Devices Get TWRP Support, Alongside Other Hardware

I'm not going to tell you why you may want to install a custom recovery. You already know you need one to replace your default ROM or make carbon copies of your device's current state. And you know that the Team Win Recovery Project's custom recovery is at the top of your list of options.

Now TWRP has arrived for quite a few devices, including a buttload of Xiaomi phones. We're talking about the Mi 2 and Mi 4, along with their various versions. There's the Redmi 3, Redmi Note 2, and even the Mi Pad. These make the list not long after the Redmi Note 3 did the same.

LG Makes A Surprisingly Big Deal Out Of Its UX 5.0 Software Skin Upgrade With A Video And Press Release

Years and years after Samsung, HTC, and Motorola started plopping bloated skins on top of stock Android, manufacturers are still trying to create semi-artificial market differentiation with their shiny software toys. While manufacturer skins have gotten more tolerable as of late (thanks in no small part to the way they've also become much more resource efficient), it's still vaguely annoying that all these companies feel the need to spend vast amounts of time and effort completely overhauling something that already works pretty well.

[New Story: HELP] Google Releases New 360 Spotlight Story "On Ice," Teases Updates To The Android App

Spotlight Stories is one of the remnants of Motorola that Google kept after selling the company to Lenovo. It's a fun project that releases interesting movies every now and then that aren't like anything you've seen before. They're interactive, shot in 360-degree, and each time you watch them, you can unveil a different storyline and ending by simply moving and looking elsewhere.

Spotlight Stories used to be confined to their Android app, but Google brought them out to YouTube back in December as 360-degree videos that you can only watch on your phone in the YouTube app either on your screen or through Cardboard.

MWC 2016: What To Expect From The World's Biggest Smartphone Show

We're in Barcelona! And I'm struggling to stay awake. It's 3PM here in one of my favorite places to visit (I've been doing it five years now, after all), and I am jet lagged to an extent I've scarcely ever experienced. But 2016 is shaping up to be one of the busiest MWCs ever in terms of smartphone news, and we're just getting started. Over the next couple of days, you'll see big announcements from the likes of LG, Samsung, Alcatel, possibly Sony, maybe a few things from HTC, and likely dozens of smaller companies looking to get their share of the limelight.
