Verizon Officially Unveils The DROID Turbo 2 With 'Shatterproof' Screen And Moto Maker, Coming October 29th Starting At $624

Previous rumors asserted that a beefed up version of the Moto X Style called the Moto X Force would come to the US as a Verizon exclusive known as the DROID Turbo 2. Rumors also said Verizon would boast about a so-called unbreakable display and introduce Moto Maker to a DROID device for the first time. Still with me? Good, because as previously leaked promotional materials showed, all of these claims were true, and now we're getting the official word straight from the horse's mouth. Verizon revealed the DROID Turbo 2 at its previously announced press event today (alongside the mid-range DROID Maxx 2) and proceeded to drop the device from around six feet onto concrete.

Verizon Will Impose $20 Price Increase On Grandfathered Unlimited Data Subscribers Starting November 15th

Have an unlimited data plan on Verizon? Well, it's about to get more expensive. While the company hasn't actually offered unlimited smartphone data to new customers since around 2011, many subscribers are still "grandfathered" into old unlimited data plans. Verizon has already tried to push such subscribers to the new tiered plans, and being grandfathered now generally necessitates buying your phones off-contract if you want to stay on the gigabyte gravy train.

Verizon, In Startling Moment Of Clarity, Cancels The Pointless Sony Xperia Z4v

Remember the Verizon Z4v? Me neither [almost]! I even wrote an article about this phone like 2 weeks ago and I still barely remember it. If you want a refresher: the Z4v was basically a Verizon-ified version of the Xperia Z4. Which launched way back in April. There's also that whole "the Z5 now exists" thing, which makes releasing a new Z4 variant kind of pointless and generally a bit silly.

Verizon, in what can only be called a mildly astonishing moment of self-realization and pragmatism, has therefore decided to cancel the phone. Take it away, Albert:

Verizon will no longer be launching Xperia Z4v, however we are committed to supporting Sony Mobile’s product portfolio and will support existing products.

Samsung Updates Verizon's Galaxy Core Prime From Android 4.4 All The Way To 5.1.1

Android updates are in the spotlight again, thanks to Motorola's questionable dedication to its own recent products. And while you can (usually) count on at least one or two software updates for most flagship phones, sometimes a low-end device comes back and surprises you. Such is the case with the Galaxy Core Prime, a Verizon exclusive in the US which launched with Android 4.4 back in February. At the time the relatively small and underpowered budget phone was promised an update to Lollipop. Quoting David earlier this year: "Oh, and it actually comes with a promise of a Lollipop upgrade, so that's good, though how long it'll take is anyone's guess."

You can stop guessing: it took a little less than eight months.

Verizon Launches Go90, A Free Video Streaming Service With A Social Spin Aimed At Mobile Devices

Companies generally hope to entice you to use their gadgets and networks to watch the likes of YouTube, Netflix, and Hulu. But Verizon Wireless isn't content to let you stream someone else's shows over its network using a phone it sold you. You should be watching its content. So to get you on board with the idea, it has released go90, a new video streaming app.

Go90, a reference to the way you rotate your phone when watching video, is an eclectic mix of TV shows and YouTube clips.
