[Update: Still not fixed] Recurring reminders on Android Wear to be fixed with future Google app update

Note8 default wallpapers leaked ahead of official launch

SamsungVN, a Vietnam-based site, published the wallpapers and took them down shortly afterwards. But this is the internet - nothing is ever really deleted.

Moto E4 Plus review: Dangerously close to the perfect budget phone

If you've read our Moto E4 review, you already know what to expect from Moto's budget lineup: reasonable specifications, bloat-free Android, and four-carrier compatibility in the US. All in all, it's a formula that we've found consistently puts Moto at the top of our recommendation pile in the entry-level to low-mid-range segment (including with phones like the excellent G5 Plus).

Facebook gave it a shot with 'Lifestage,' a social media app exclusive to high school students. Not even a year after it was released, Facebook is shutting it down.
