Motorola is headed into the summer with the Moto Z at the top of the roster, but the 2015 flagship Moto X Pure is still available too.

Look, I'm not going to try to convince you that the Galaxy S7 Edge is a good phone. If you're reading this, then you're already interested in this kick-ass device, which I personally think nears perfection and can easily fill most people's needs in a high-end smartphone.
The S7 Edge also comes in a dual-SIM variant that's usually more expensive, and harder to find if you want it unlocked in the US. But if this is what you're looking for then you should stop and check out this eBay deal. A highly rated seller is offering the unlocked S7 Edge Duos 32GB for $599.99 today. Read More

According to a Nextbit announcement post with the charming title "Damn, Nextbit. At it again," a software update in Q4 of this year will make your battery last significantly longer. How?

WhatsApp's voice calling doesn't seem like it has changed a lot since it was first tested as an invite-only feature then released to everyone in March of 2015. But the service, from my personal experience, has become more reliable, less spotty, with fewer delays and disconnections. Around me, everyone uses WhatsApp calls, because everyone is on WhatsApp to begin with, but also because local calls still aren't unlimited or cheap on any plan, not to mention the exorbitant prices of international calls. WhatsApp calls have almost completely replaced regular calls for us, and it's not hard to imagine that it must be the same in other countries where WhatsApp is popular too. Read More
Some Pixel C owners have had a rough time with Google's flagship tablet. Problems first started appearing last month, when the scheduled over-the-air update for May (plus some Android N preview builds that had already been available) started causing semi-random reboots, usually when the tablet had gone into its low-power mode running on battery. The June update failed to fix the problem, as did the fourth version of the Android N developer preview. Read More

Virtual Network Computing, better known as VNC, remains one of the most popular ways around to access remote computers. VNC Viewer, the official remote access app for Android from the developers of Real VNC, gets a substantial update today. The biggest improvement is the addition of support for Bluetooth mice and trackpads. Of course you could use them with the app before, but now the Viewer app will specifically interpret them to directly control the cursor of the remote machine instead of simply emulating local touches. It should also work with other connected peripherals, whether wireless or wired. Read More
