Moto Z and Z Force hands-on and first impressions

Motorola under the stewardship of Lenovo is doing something very different this year. The Moto X brand may not be gone, but it's certainly not the company's focus right now. Instead, we have the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. They're thin and they have Moto Mods—snap-on modules like projectors and speakers that make the phones much less thin. The Z is coming to Verizon first as a Droid phone (that's what I have to review), but the device I'm looking at now is very similar to what Motorola will release unlocked later this year.

[Deal Alert] Open box Verizon Galaxy S7 on sale for $429.99 via eBay

The Samsung Galaxy S7 is still one of (if not the) best high-end phone you can get from carriers. The problem: it's really expensive too. There are often deals on GSM unlocked versions of the phone, but what are Verizon customers to do? Cry? No, you can just buy this open box GS7 for a mere $429.99.

Verizon makes new plans and mobile app official—oh, and 'Safety Mode' throttling will cost you $5 per month

The new Verizon plans leaked recently have been made official, and they are roughly what we expected. Verizon is boosting data caps, but it's also going to be charging you more money. The new mobile app will apparently make it easier to manage your plan and bills as well. Speaking of your bills, you'll have the option of paying Verizon extra money every month to throttle your connection to 128Kbps... seriously.

Verizon expected to increase data caps and prices on July 7

It seems like Verizon can't go more than a few months lately without making tweaks to its plans. According to recent leaks, Big Red is preparing to increase data caps across the board (yay), but that also comes with price increases (boo). The rumored changes are expected on July 7th.

[Update: Google too] T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon offer free calls to Turkey following Istanbul airport attack

I wish I didn't have to sit here and write these kinds of posts. I wish we weren't living in times where companies are compelled to offer free calls to countries following tragedies like these (instead of celebrations or national holidays or happy events), especially when they're conducted by fellow man and not inevitable fits of nature. But here we are, mourning another terrorist attack that has taken the lives of 36 persons and injured over 140 in Turkey's Ataturk Airport in Istanbul.

Verizon appears to be experiencing a major outage centered around Florida

Verizon's network appears to be experiencing a major service outage centered around Florida. It seems the outage mostly affects calling, not necessarily data or texting. More as we receive it (update: Verizon statement below) - but Down Detector makes it clear something is up. It is not known if any other regions are affected by the outage at this time.

Lenovo Announces Moto Z And Moto Z Force, With Verizon Droid Editions Arriving First

So Lenovo, you're not going to let Motorola announce its own stuff anymore, is that it? That certainly seems to be the take-away from the company's reveal at its Lenovo Tech World presentation in San Francisco. In between discussions of new tablets, augmented reality 3D design, and network tech, the much-leaked Moto Z flagship was announced at the event, along with the Moto Z Force. They're both coming in "DROID Editions" only to Verizon, at least initially.

Verizon Announces Marshmallow Update For Galaxy Note Edge

Android N (Nutella? Nougat?) is edging closer and closer to an official stable release, but that doesn't mean 6.0 Marshmallow is anywhere close to saturation point: according to Android's official monthly distribution numbers, only 10.1% of Android users are using that latest stable version of the OS. That should increase a little bit more in the next week or two, with Verizon announcing the Marshmallow update for its Galaxy Note Edge is ready.

The update brings all the things you would expect of a Marshmallow-based upgrade. Now on Tap is here (which is getting better all the time), as are on-demand permissions and Doze, saving you crucial battery life.

Verizon Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Gets Marshmallow OTA Update

Samsung owners who are on Verizon are lucky this week. Yesterday, the operator started pushing Marshmallow in an OTA update to the Galaxy S5 and today it's ready to roll out the same Android 6.0 to the Galaxy Tab S2.

The software version number is MMB29K.T817VVRU2BPE1 and it brings all of Marshmallow's goodies to the Tab S2, including Doze mode for longer battery life, per-app permissions for more control over your apps, and Google Now on Tap for... whatever you find Now on Tap is useful for. There are many more Android 6.0 features to enjoy too, as we've previously detailed.
