[Update: Replaced with full refund option] Moto X4 Android One now offered as replacement for faulty Nexus 5X phones on Project Fi in lieu of crappy $53 payout

By now, you're all probably familiar with the Nexus 5X and its tendency to bootloop. This has caused some major headaches, especially to those Nexus 5X owners on Project Fi who purchased Device Protection (formerly known as Nexus Protect). However, Project Fi support is now offering the Moto X4 Android One as replacements for faulty 5Xes, which makes a lot more sense than a paltry $53 check.

[Deal Alert] Verizon offering 'buy one get one free' deal on Pixel 2, Galaxy S8, Moto Z2 Force, and LG V30 with trade in

The phrase 'buy one get one free' can be music to the ears of consumers but doesn't often apply to expensive devices like smartphones. For that reason, this deal from Verizon is looking pretty sweet. Getting in on the Valentine's Day spirit early, the carrier will give you 2 brand new phones if you trade in your current one. That's a phone for you, and one for your other half, perhaps.

Motorola releases Oreo kernel source code for Moto X4

Those of you familiar with the GPL will know that manufacturers are required to post any modifications they make to the Android kernel. Motorola does this with all of their phones, including the Nougat-powered Moto X4, but now that Oreo is out for the phone (well, at least the Android One version), the source code for that needs to be posted as well. Lo and behold, it has.

We just saw a leaked photo of the Moto E5 yesterday, but apparently that wasn't all there is to leak. Droid Life has posted renders and details on six phones: the Moto G6, the Moto G6 Plus, the Moto G6 Play, the Moto X5, the Moto Z3, and the Moto Z3 Play. All of them follow the trend of a higher screen-to-body ratio with an 18:9 display.

Moto E5 image leak reveals rear-mounted fingerprint sensor with Motorola logo on top

Last year's Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus both received high praises in our reviews. Those phones both sported front-mounted fingerprint sensors, just as Galaxy devices and iPhones did for many years. However, it looks like Lenovorola may be moving the fingerprint sensor to the back for the Moto E5, according to a leaked image.

Motorola releases Oreo kernel source code for the Z2 Force

It only took about a month for Motorola to release the Moto Z2 Force's kernel source code after it launched in August. As you may know, OEMs are required to publish their modifications to the Android kernel code, which is then used by developers to make custom ROMs and recoveries.

Motorola attempts to breathe new life into Moto Mods with health tracker, keyboard, and another design competition

Lenovo-owned Motorola might have been onto something with its modular phone accessories for the Moto Z series, but a combination of slow development of compelling products and poor availability leaves them in a precarious position. Nevertheless, the company is pushing on with the project in 2018 and has some new Moto Mods coming soon, plus a new design competition.

Motorola is offering some nice discounts on several devices for an after-holiday sale, including a significant $100 savings on the Moto Z2 Play.

[Deal Alert] Free ($300 off) Insta-Share Projector Moto Mod with purchase of other Moto Mod at Verizon

Projector phones always seemed like an idea that made more sense in science fiction than in present reality, which is probably why the Galaxy Beam failed to gain much traction. Such as it is, the benefit of the Moto Mod design allows anyone with a compatible phone to add on a countless number of peculiar peripherals... one at a time. Now, at Verizon, you can get a free Insta-Share Projector Moto Mod for free when you purchase any other Moto Mod. At $300 off, it's quite the bargain.

Motorola announced which phones would receive Android 8.0 back in August. The Verizon Z2 Force was first to get the update, but now it looks like the T-Mobile model is up next. A few Z2 Force owners on T-Mobile have received the Oreo update notification, indicating that a mass rollout may start soon (if it hasn't already).
