Motorola posted the Android 5.1 changelog for the second gen Moto E earlier this month (along with the 1st and 2nd gen Moto X). A week later, we saw over-the-air updates go out. What about the older Moto E released a year before? As it turns out, Motorola isn't leaving the phone behind. The company is currently soak testing Android 5.1 on the device in India.
Motorola has posted a changelog aimed at Indian users. Read More
It has been nine months since the second generation Moto G was announced so it's no surprise that we're starting to hear rumblings of a third iteration of the affordable and capable smartphone. This latest rumor bears a bit more credibility since it emanated from a published Flipkart page for the phone (that has since been removed).
Not many details were revealed in the online seller's listing, except the phone's white color and 8GB of internal storage. Read More
At this point, the words "OnePlus One" and "touchscreen issues" seem to be almost synonymous on our site. You can't mention one without the other being brought up after all the annoyed reports from users, promises of solutions, so-called "fixes" being rolled out, only to be followed by an emerging set of new issues and vows by OnePlus like a snake that sheds its skin only to regrow another one. But that may be over. Read More
Did you remember that Samsung made an Android Wear device? To be honest, I had almost completely forgotten. It seems no one ever talks about that watch, and apparently not many people were buying it either because Google just pulled the plug on the device on the Google Store. When you open the product page you are greeted with this sad sight (or site, your call).
Gone before I've ever seen one in the wild. Read More
Google's product forums have been a design nightmare for some time now, but today they rolled out a Material Design update for them. It is every bit as good as you might have hoped for, though you still have the option to switch to the old style. This extends to all of Google's products' support forums, but not Google Groups, which are technically separate despite the fact they shared a very similar UI before today. Read More
CBS isn't the only network streaming app that's new to the Chromecast scene today. FXNOW, FOXNOW, and HGTV Watch are also ready to stream their content from an Android device to your TV.
Before downloading the apps make sure you know your cable subscriber login information as you will need it if you want access to most of the apps streaming contents. Read More
Part of using Amazon revolves around ordering cool new stuff, 80% of which probably consists of impulse buys. But for people who use the site for more mundane things—say, soap—the online retailer spends a good amount of time resending the same stuff. Those who happen to own an Amazon Echo can now use the cylindrical voice assistant to re-order supplies without having to pull out a phone or head to the nearest PC. Read More
The Sony Smart Tennis Sensor is obviously a niche device. Do you play tennis? Are you dedicated enough to want to track how fast you swing? Are you willing to pay $200 to do so?
For the person that answers yes to all of these questions, the Smart Tennis Sensor is now available for purchase in parts of North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific. Read More
One of the problems with all these Android Wear watches is that there's not a standard charging mechanism. That means you (usually) have to use the cradle that comes with them. If that breaks, you better hope you've got a spare on hand. Now you can get another one for the LG Watch Urbane. Read More
Every time Samsung releases a new high-profile phone or tablet, it also makes a bunch of pricey first-party cases to go with it. And why not - they're high-margin accessories that get stocked by the likes of Best Buy and carrier stores, and most of the time they're actually pretty nice. Read More
