Project Fi will give you $100 in service credit if you buy a Moto X4

The Moto X4 is the first non-Google phone to arrive on Project Fi, but the $399 price tag was asking too much. David referred to it as, "a $400 G5 Plus with NFC in a metal and glass sandwich," which I think is fairly accurate. Project Fi has now made the price more tolerable, by including $100 of service credit when you buy an X4.

Google's Project Treble could start a custom ROM revolution

Android phone buyers have been begging Google for years to do something about the platform's typically slow updates. As of this month, Android 8.0 Oreo only has 0.3% market share among Android devices, Marshmallow (released in 2015) is still at 30%, and Lollipop (from 2014) sits at 27%. Google's latest attempt to solve this problem is 'Project Treble,' a major restructuring of Android that is part of 8.0 Oreo.

[Update x2: Now fixed] Google Opinion Rewards is broken for some users

At a post-Thanksgiving potluck yesterday, a friend and I were sharing our enthusiasm for Android with someone who recently switched to the platform. One of the first things I always tout in these conversations is Google Opinion Rewards, the app that gives you free Play Store credit in exchange for answering survey questions. As I was talking through it, I took out my phone and opened the app to show my reward history (a shade under $90 since 2014).

Sadly, it appears that some Opinion Rewards users recently lost the luxury to do that at all, thanks to a glitch that loads HTML code instead of readable, formatted text and images within the app.

This is the Zenfone V, a phone that bears some resemblance to one of Samsung's older phones, but it packs 2016 flagship specs into a small, manageable frame all for just $240 ($10/month).

Fitbit Ionic review: Not the smartest smartwatch

Fitbit started out making simple step counters that clipped on your pocket, but over time it added displays, exercise tracking, heart rate monitors, and more. Many of its rivals have changed their focus or simply gone out of business, but Fitbit is fast becoming a household name. The last few wrist-based Fitbit devices have been vaguely smartwatch-like, but the true Fitbit smartwatch has been elusive—until now. After acquiring some bits from the now-defunct Pebble, Fitbit has its very own smartwatch called the Ionic.

This device has a definite "Fitbit" aesthetic. It's thick, and the screen is rectangular and rather small. You want corners?

[Deal Alert] Pixel 2 XL 128GB is $899.99 ($50 off) with tax in only 4 states on eBay

The Pixel 2 XL isn't an inexpensive phone by any means, and discounts on Google phones are pretty rare within the first few months of release. That makes this $50 discount (and you could be saving a lot more if you live in one of 46 states that tax isn't charged for) a pretty big deal.
