The Moto G5S Plus is official in the US: Dual rear cameras, metal unibody, 5.5" 1080p display

Moto is still on a mission to confuse everyone with a multitude of devices that differ ever so slightly in specs and nomenclature. The latest is the Moto G5S Plus, a bigger version of the current Moto G5 Plus, which is a bigger version of the regular G5. See? Simple. We first heard about the G5S Plus last month when specs of the device leaked, but now it's official.

The G5S Plus keeps the metal body of the current G5 lineup, but it improves it thanks to a unibody anodized aluminum design. It also has the same water repellent nano-coating, the same Snapdragon 625 processor and Adreno 506 GPU under the hood, MicroUSB charging and 3.5mm headphone port, and the same battery capacity at 3000mAh.

Google just pushed a minor revision to the Google Voice app for Android, bringing it up to v5.3. Nothing huge appears to have been changed, but there is one small but useful new feature. Now long-pressing on a message brings up an option for multi-selection, rather than just a menu for simple actions pertaining to a single message. So the next time you need to mass-delete messages sent to your Google Voice account, it won't be quite such a tedious affair.

Well, as of today version 2.0 of that API is now available, bringing new features for developers.

Bluetooth battery level indicators could be coming to stock Android soon

Over the years, one of the most annoying feature omissions in stock Android has been a battery indicator for connected Bluetooth devices. There is a public standard for reporting battery life from (supported) Bluetooth devices, but stock Android just doesn't use it. A few OEMs have implemented it themselves in the last few years, like Samsung and LG, but not Google.

The Moto Z2 Force's 'unbreakable' screen may be a deal breaker

Motorola is set to launch the Moto Z2 Force in a few weeks on all major US carriers. Those carriers are doing their part to make the launch a success with various promos, but you ought to look upon these deals with skepticism. Our full Moto Z2 Force review will be ready in a few days, but I thought it would be prudent to expand on something I touched on in the hands-on: the ShatterShield display. I'm afraid this screen will be a deal breaker for many people. While it doesn't crack, there are plenty of other issues with it.
