[Bug Watch] Nexus 6 Devices With Sprint SIM Cards Are Having Issues Receiving Calls

For most of us, making and receiving phone calls with our devices is something we simply take for granted. Unfortunately, Nexus 6 owners who use Sprint as their carrier are finding that it's not quite that simple.

Background

The Nexus 6 works on all five major US carriers with the simple swap of a SIM card, but that doesn't mean that all problems with the device are universal to all carriers.

Moto X (2014) Review Addendum: Three Months Later

When Motorola released the revamped Moto X a few months ago, there was plenty of discussion about whether it or the still-unannounced Nexus 6 would be a better purchase. It's completely reasonable to prefer the Nexus 6 because of the larger screen and improved camera, but the 2014 Moto X still stands out to me as one of the best Android phones ever made. Now that we've got a little distance, let's see how the 2014 Moto X is holding up.

[Update: Android One Nightlies, T-Mobile G3 (D851) Added] CyanogenMod Adds Official Support For Android One, Nexus 6, International LG G3 (D855)

Just a day after pushing Lollipop nightlies to over 30 devices for the first time, CyanogenMod has now added more devices to the fray: the gambit of Android One phones, the LG G3 D855 (international), and the Nexus 6. Android One devices, owing to the control over software and hardware that Google has in that program, share a single ROM under codename "sprout."

Motorola Connect Update Adds Watchface Customization Shortcut To Android Wear App

The Motorola Connect app isn't required to get use out of your Moto 360, but it is if you want to customize any of those watchfaces that come pre-installed on the device. The latest update doesn't remove that restriction, but it does allow you to hop straight to the tweaking stage from the Android Wear app directly. Take a look.

Left: old, Right: new.

As you can see in the shots above, an entry titled "Settings" has appeared in the menu between "Set on watch" and "Hide on watch."

Clicking this option shoots you out to the same customization page you would go to by navigating through Motorola Connect directly, so it does little more than give you a choice in how you get there.

Motorola Is Headed Back To China With The Moto G LTE, Moto X, And A De-Nexused Nexus 6 Called The Moto X Pro

Motorola is now completely under the Lenovo umbrella, so it's the perfect time for it to head back to China after pulling back some years ago. Motorola will be launching three devices in China—there's the Moto G, Moto X, and something called the Moto X Pro. Judging from the description and photo, it's a Nexus 6 without the Nexus.

[Wear Compare] The Strengths And Weaknesses Of All The First-Generation Android Wear Devices

In just a few months, it will be the one-year anniversary of Android Wear's announcement (March 18th). Since the first two official Android-powered watches were released at I/O 2014, we've seen half a dozen total watches running Android Wear, each with its own pros and cons. These devices run the gamut from kind of ugly to truly gorgeous. A new wave of watches will be upon us in the coming year, but the current ones are still a great way to get into wearables.

Team Win Recovery Project Updated To Version 2.8.3, Throws In Moto G 2014 Support For Good Measure

The Team Win Recovery Project (more commonly known as TWRP) is easily the most popular custom recovery used by Android enthusiasts at this point. The latest release, which should apply to all of the current official builds, adds a handful of new features and a bunch of bug fixes. The biggest change is that the ADB sideload method has been modified to more closely align with the AOSP implementation, which keeps the update ZIP file on your computer rather than your phone or tablet.

The Nexus 6 Doesn't Ship With A Turbo Charger In Australia Yet, But Put Down Your Pitch Forks—There's A Good Reason

The Nexus 6 is a big phone with a big 3200mAh battery. Fortunately, it comes with a Motorola Turbo Charger that can breathe hours of life back into the phone in minutes. The thing is, Ausdroid has reported that folks in Australia are finding that their handsets aren't coming with the speedy charger in the box. Instead, there's a weaker charger in its place. What gives?

The issue results from electrical standards in Australia, which the version of the Turbo Charger designed for the global market doesn't meet.

[OTA ZIP Download] Moto G Google Play Edition Getting Lollipop Update

If you're the owner of a Moto G GPE, your Lollipop update is here. Google and Motorola have begun rolling out the latest version of Android to the budget GPE device, but if you don't have it yet, we've got the direct download link for you at the bottom of this post.

Oddly, even though this new firmware is Android 5.0.1, the build is LRX21Z, which would appear to be older than LRX22C, which is the 5.0.1 build heading out to Nexus and other GPE devices.
