In a series of very minor updates, three of Verizon's DROID line will be getting Advanced Calling 1.0 enhancements. The Ultra, Maxx, and Mini will each receive what amounts to the same update, which is described as no more than "bug fixes and stability improvements" to Verizon's VoLTE calling service. For the unfamiliar, Advanced Calling promises far clearer voice quality by using only LTE when possible and on supported phones.

The changelog above also applies to the DROID Maxx.

Nexus 6

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.

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.

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."

For now, the Android One builds are experimental.

Another one bites the dust. The Moto G Google Play Edition is no longer available in the Play Store. You've been able to pick up the low-cost device with immediate shipping since its debut almost a year ago. Now it's "no longer available for sale."

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.

The base mode of the 2014 Moto X is still only 16GB, but a 32GB upgrade has been available since launch. Not enough? Motorola has just announced that 64GB is an option when you order through Moto Maker, but only for the Pure Edition unlocked Moto X.

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.

If Motorola's Brazillian website is to be believed, an LTE version of the 2nd generation Moto G could be on the way soon, and it's packing more than just additional connectivity. According to the specification page, the new LTE G will get a substantially larger 2390mAh battery (versus 2070mAh normally).

There's also a distinct line in the display specifications for the LTE G, but as far as I can tell it's the same 720p IPS panel with Gorilla Glass 3 that the 3G version has.

If Santa, the Chanukah Zombie, or Kwanzabot didn't bring you what you wanted this year, why not take matters into your own hands? The Nexus 6 is finally available again from Motorola, and they have all variants in stock. Yes, even that fabled unicorn, the 64GB cloud white.
