LineageOS 18.1 brings Android 11 to almost 60 phones

Out with the old, in with the new: LineageOS cut support for Android 9 Pie earlier this year, and to make up for the loss, the open-source project has just released version 18.1 based on Android 11. It comes with official support for about 60 phones and tablets.

Choosing the most influential Android devices of the last decade

Choosing the most influential Android devices of the last decade

We've clearly got a little bias on the subject, but Android has a long and storied history filled with its own triumphs and pitfalls. It's been well over a decade now since that first HTC G1 landed, the inaugural Android smartphone, and things have changed drastically since then. Being "first" might make you think the G1 was the most influential Android phone — but was it, really?

Moto announces a trio of new low-priced G phones

Moto announces a trio of new low-priced G phones

In addition to the weirdly expensive Moto G100, Motorola is officially dropping three more phones in the G series today. They all appear to be based on the same 6.5-inch chassis, but with remixed internals to create different price points. The G10, G30, and G50 will be rolling out to various international markets over the next few weeks.

Motorola's latest G-series phone is its most powerful ever, with a price tag to match

Motorola's latest G-series phone is its most powerful ever, with a price tag to match

Motorola's G-series is known for being economical, cramming in everything you need and nothing you don't. But it looks like Moto is trying to expand its horizons. The new G100 is easily the most powerful, feature-packed phone ever to hit the series, including a high-end Snapdragon 870 chip and Motorola's new Ready For video out system. Even so, it's kept near the upper end of the mid-range price spectrum.

Motorola's next midranger could feature a 108MP camera

Motorola's next midranger could feature a 108MP camera

Motorola is making flagship phones again, but budget phones are still the company's primary focus — the Moto G series is arguably what's keeping their ship from sinking. We've already seen a few G phones this year, but an upcoming model looks set to be their most ambitious attempt yet.

Motorola announces Ready For, a Samsung DeX competitor for the Edge+

Motorola announces Ready For, a Samsung DeX competitor for the Edge+

When Samsung debuted DeX on the Galaxy S8, it showed us that our smartphones are more powerful than we give them credit for, and are capable of becoming big-ticket productivity tools when connected to a larger display. Motorola has now unveiled its own mobile desktop experience called Ready For, and it sounds promising.

Motorola has started bringing Android 11 to the Moto G8 and Moto G8 Power

Motorola has started bringing Android 11 to the Moto G8 and Moto G8 Power

Motorola's reputation for software updates isn't exactly sterling, with most of its devices only receiving two software updates over the course of their lifespan. Last December, Motorola announced 21 of its phones would be receiving updates to Android 11, though in the three months since, we've only heard about a single update starting to arrive. You now can mark two more devices off that list, as Android 11 updates start heading out for both the Moto G8 and Moto G8 Power.

Moto G Stylus 2021 review, one month later: Finding the point

Moto G Stylus 2021 review, one month later: Finding the point

There's something about using a stylus that's just incredibly compelling. Sure, touchscreen hardware and finger-tracking algorithms are so good that few of us really need a stylus to successfully interact with mobile screens, but that hasn't stopped a few select handsets from bundling one in — and those have become some of the most popular models you'll find. While Samsung's Note range sits comfortably at the top of the food chain with its active tracking and Bluetooth features, there's also a lot of demand for budget-friendly stylus phones like the LG Stylo series. Now Motorola's back with another of its own, upgrading the Moto G Stylus for 2021.

Moto G Power (2021) review, one month later: Gee, I wish this had some Power

Moto G Power (2021) review, one month later: Gee, I wish this had some Power

You could argue that Motorola made budget phones worth buying when it launched the original Moto G in 2013. That device was a marvel at the time—for under $200, you could get a smartphone that didn't suck. Suddenly, everyone was making $200-300 phones that also mostly didn't suck. Today, the mid-range space is much more crowded, and Moto has sometimes failed to make a splash with the annual Moto G revamp. This year there are three new G-series phones, including the Moto G Power. Arguably, this is the device with the widest appeal. There's no stylus included, but it's got more muscle than the G Play, and it has a big honkin' battery.
