Sony's Playstation app hits 100 million installs five months after the launch of the PS5

Any time an application hits 100 million installs on the Play Store, it's worth taking note. From podcast players to streaming services, it's a sign that an app has truly cemented its legacy on Android. It's not often that three apps reach this milestone all at once, but that's exactly what has happened today. PlayStation, myAT&T, and Moto Photo Editor have all earned their respective places in the Play Store hall of fame.

Motorola unfolds a very late update for a phone you probably forgot existed

Motorola unfolds a very late update for a phone you probably forgot existed

Motorola's folding Razr was a surprise homage to an iconic phone, but the company quickly followed it up with the Moto Razr 5G, which tops the original revival in almost every aspect. While the phone launched with Android 11 in Japan, it got stuck on Android 10 in most of the rest of the world, with an unfortunate launch timing shortly after Android 11's stable release. But that's finally changing — the latest version of Android is now starting to roll out to the Razr 5G, as reported by XDA.

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 Play 2021 review, two months later: Updates are already a problem

Moto G Play 2021 review, two months later: Updates are already a problem

Every budget phone has its own mix of features and compromises, and this difference in the cocktail from model to model and brand to brand makes them unique. Some combinations are better than others, though, and the Moto G Play comes very near striking an ideal blend. It has good performance (for the price), pleasant software, fantastic battery life, and a big screen, all for just $170. But there is one big drawback: Motorola can't even keep up with Google's minimum requirements for updates a mere two months after the phone's release.

The cheap and cheerful Moto e7 promises 36 hours of battery life

We don't expect an awful lot from a phone costing less than £100, but Motorola assures us that its latest budget handset will last around 36 hours on a single charge and take photos that aren't terrible with its 48MP main camera. It also boasts what Motorola is calling a water-repellent design — it can apparently withstand "moderate exposure to water such as accidental spills, splashes, or light rain — which is more than can be said for most cheap phones.
