Looking to apply some root modifications or custom ROMs to that sweet Moto X Pure Edition (AKA the Moto X Style outside the US) you just got from Moto Maker? You might want to think twice. According to an employee post on the official Motorola support forum, the Moto X Pure Edition is not considered a developer device (like the Developer Edition versions of previous Moto X and DROID phones), so fiddling around with aftermarket software means you're on your own when it comes to support.
The new (2015) Moto X Pure is not a developer edition, so unlocking the bootloader does void the warranty.
Man, the Galaxy S6 may not have the sex appeal of its more expensive brother the S6 Edge, but what it lacks in looks it is certainly making up for in value. Currently, you can buy an unlocked 32GB S6 in black, white, or gold for just $430 at Monoprice's store on eBay. This beats the previous best price we've seen by a not insignificant $40.
This is the G920i model, which is the standard international version. It should play nice with most GSM carriers bands, but you can check the full list of supported frequencies on the product page. Read More
This isn't really so much news as "I thought this was kind of cool and wanted to share it with all of you." I just received an evaluation unit of Samsung's new wireless fast charge pad for the Galaxy S6 edge+ and Note 5, and upon opening I noticed immediately that it was quite a bit thicker than Samsung's old Galaxy S6 wireless charging pad. I then spied an array of what looked like (and as it turns out, are) ventilation openings all along the bottom of the charging puck. Could it be? Did Samsung build a phone charger with a fan inside it? Read More
Samsung just refreshed its premium Tab S line, and already you can get a deal on one of them. The 8-inch version of the Tab S2 is on eBay for $350, which is $50 off the retail price. Read More
There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to which carriers release updates for their Android updates first, and once you stray outside of the shallow waters of flagship smartphones, things start to get really inconsistent. For example, AT&T is updating its carrier-specific version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 to 5.1.1 today, at least according to this support page. But at the same time, Sprint's Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 is only just now getting upgraded from Android 4.4 to 5.0. Huh.
AT&T's Tab 4 8.0 update includes changes to the Quick Settings menu, but not much else on top of the usual changes. Read More
We've already gotten a good look at the Huawei-built Nexus 6P, but what of its smaller sibling, the repeatedly leaked Nexus 5X from LG? We've got a full image of that one too. It's definitely the more attractive of this year's two Nexus phones, but at least you've got a choice this time—we usually only have one. Read More
The Nexus 6P isn't as mysterious as it was yesterday thanks to the leaked image and the picture of the box we posted earlier, but what about color choices? We've got that covered. Above you can see the four color options for the Huawei Nexus. Read More
Nexus day is fast approaching, which means that the leaks are intensifying with each passing hour. This latest one, however, comes to us courtesy of a lil' snafu on Amazon India's website. Someone must have clicked that Publish button slightly earlier than the embargo date, and the listings for the 16GB LG Nexus 5X have gone live.
As we previously leaked, the listings seem to verify that the Nexus will run a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor clocked at 1.8GHz, have a 5.2" IPS LCD Full HD display, a 2700mAh battery, and a 12.3MP shooter on the back with a 5MP camera on the front. Read More
We're only a few days away from the new Nexus announcement, and it's prime time for some leaks. We've already revealed the Nexus 5X and 6P boxes (along with confirming the names), but what about the phones themselves? Well, we've got a high-resolution press image of the Nexus 6P, and it is indeed that phone that was leaked a few weeks ago with the black bar on the back. Read More
