Lenovo's K8 Note is official with a 5.5" FHD display, Helio X23, and stock Android

It's easy to forget here in the West that Lenovo still makes its own phones (versus relying solely on Motorola). Despite that, the Chinese company just announced its newest device, the K8 Note. It comes with some decent specs, an attractive price, and stock Android 7.1.1.

Lenovo will abandon its Vibe Pure UI in favor of stock Android on all future phones, starting with the K8 Note

Perhaps the most common complaint about Android phones is that the software doesn't always hit the heights of the hardware. It's true of many flagship phones from a variety of OEMs, and one of the culprits is usually bloated custom UI skins. In trying to differentiate their devices, many phone makers end up diminishing the overall software experience. Companies like Sony and Motorola have been rightly praised for their use of near stock Android on their devices, and it seems that Moto's parent company Lenovo is now ready to follow suit.

The Moto G5S Plus is official in the US: Dual rear cameras, metal unibody, 5.5" 1080p display

Moto is still on a mission to confuse everyone with a multitude of devices that differ ever so slightly in specs and nomenclature. The latest is the Moto G5S Plus, a bigger version of the current Moto G5 Plus, which is a bigger version of the regular G5. See? Simple. We first heard about the G5S Plus last month when specs of the device leaked, but now it's official.

The G5S Plus keeps the metal body of the current G5 lineup, but it improves it thanks to a unibody anodized aluminum design. It also has the same water repellent nano-coating, the same Snapdragon 625 processor and Adreno 506 GPU under the hood, MicroUSB charging and 3.5mm headphone port, and the same battery capacity at 3000mAh.

[Very Personality] Lenovo Theme Center comes to the Play Store with the same ol' content

Lenovo is having a rough time lately staying on top of its demanding user base, especially those that associate it with Motorola still and hold it to a higher standard than most brands. And it's not like the company is doing itself any favors with colossal snafus like that APPShot that we reported on a few months ago. (If you missed that post, I recommend you read it for the lulz.) Now the company is back with another new app on the Play Store, Theme Center. Fortunately, the description and screenshots aren't as criminally bad as APPShot, but unfortunately, the result is still the same with thousands of 1-star ratings and dissatisfied users.

Moto G5S Plus will feature a 5.5" 1080p display, a metal build, and dual rear cameras

The Moto G5 Plus is already a good budget phone - so good, in fact, that we declared it "the king of budget phones" in our review. However, Lenovorola isn't stopping there; famed leaker Evan Blass of VentureBeat has looked at marketing materials for the G5S Plus, which state that the upcoming smartphone will be larger, better-built, and have superior cameras when compared to the current G5 Plus.

[Update: Pre-orders with free JBL SoundBoost 2] Motorola reveals the Moto Z2 Play with a smaller 3,000mAh battery and new Moto Mods

Last year, Motorola (Lenovo) surprised everyone when it hit pause on its Moto X flagship line and introduced a new modular silo to take over the mantel. The Moto Z Play was the cheaper sibling of the Moto Z, with better battery life and a more affordable price tag, and both were designed to showcase the new Moto Mods attachments. The second generation model leaked a couple of months ago, and the Moto Z2 Play has now been officially unveiled, alongside 4 new or updated Moto Mods.

The launch of the new Moto G5 and G5 Plus a couple of months ago meant two things. Firstly, there's a new budget king in town, with the Moto G range always offering incredible value for money.
