[Deal Alert] Best Buy offers the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 for just $312, plus a $200 gift card

So here's a pretty crazy deal. Best Buy is selling the Verizon-branded DROID Turbo 2, the Motorola flagship from late 2015, for $312. That's a pretty good deal on its own, even if it comes with a bit of a bummer that it's only available on an installment plan ($12.99 for 24 months). But what's particularly nutty is that Best Buy is throwing in a $200 gift card to the store with each one. That brings the effective price for the phone down to just $112. For a brand new version of a model that's coming up on a year and a half from release, that's hard to beat.

Now Motorola has released the kernel source code for the recent Nougat update.

Verizon's new equipment protection plan includes same-day screen repairs, but only for some Samsung and Motorola phones

Cracking the screen glass is the easiest way to damage a modern smartphone, if only because there's just so much of it. Verizon isn't the only company making offers for a protection plan, giving customers a little peace of mind for reduced-price phone repairs in exchange for a few bucks a month. But the newest version of the plan does have an interesting bonus: they're offering same-day screen replacement for some of the carrier's most high-profile devices. Verizon is hoping that people will be willing to shell out some extra dough for the chance to fix up their screens without having to deal with shipping.

[Update: Full rollout on February 14] Android 7.0 Nougat starting rollout on unlocked Moto Z

Under Google's leadership, Motorola was perhaps the best manufacturer when it came to Android updates - besides Google, of course. They often released Android updates for unlocked devices at the same time as, or shortly after, Nexus devices.
