The Nexus 9 was removed from the Google Store yesterday, which isn't really a surprise; it was old. The Moto 360 Sport, not so much. That hasn't stopped Google from ending sales of the wearable after just a few months. Womp womp.Read More
When you buy an expensive electronic device with a warranty, you hope you never have to use said warranty. It's always at least somewhat of a pain. For many Motorola customers, the process has been worse than that. We've been seeing an unusual number of complaints about Motorola's warranty support lately, and it looks like it might finally be coming back to bite the company. A $5 million class action complaint has been filed because of Moto's ongoing warranty issues.Read More
Sometimes you have to wait a long time to get the announcement that the latest version of Android is coming to a device that you own. That period of time can be agonizing, especially when you have your eyes set on a particular feature.
The experience is only made worse when the announcement doesn't bring an update any closer.Read More
Ryan Whitwam called the Moto 360 Sport good on paper, but hard to recommend in practice. Maybe we can amend that to hard to recommend at full price.
Motorola usually wants $299.99 for the smartwatch, but right now the company is offering the athletic-oriented Android Wear device for $100 less.Read More
I don't understand a lot of things about design, but if you ask me, those Jonathan Adler designs for Motorola's X Pure Edition aren't that appealing. They're interesting, sure, and I might want them for a couple of days or weeks, but I'd get bored of the pattern pretty quickly.
If you don't agree with me or you just want an X Pure on the cheap and don't care about the back design of the phone, you might want to hear about Motorola's latest deal. The regular Moto X Pure Edition usually costs $399.99, but it's now being discounted to $349.99. That isn't the lowest you can pay though.Read More
Everything old is new again. If you'll recall, Motorola (before it was gobbled up by Google, then Lenovo) was one of the first Android manufacturers to use a fingerprint sensor. Oddly, they've now become one of the last hold-outs after more reliable technology has made mobile sensors much better. According to a few spy shots of what looks like a new Moto G redesign posted at NowhereElse.fr, Motorola thinks it's just about time to bring them back.Read More
Motorola took its time releasing the Moto 360 Sport smart watch after announcing it, probably because the device turned out to be somewhat mediocre. At $300 it was too expensive, but the latest price drop on Amazon makes it much more palatable. The black 360 Sport is on sale for $236.17 right now with Prime shipping.Read More
Over the past week, CyanogenMod 13 nightlies have been released for several Android phones and tablets, breathing new life into what can be now considered old hardware. Most of the devices had CM12.1 prior, meaning that the jump they're witnessing is just from Lollipop 5.1 to Marshmallow 6.0, but the Verizon Galaxy S5 never had CM12, it was on CM 11 (KitKat) prior to this update. That must feel like a quantum leap.
Alright, now to the meat of the matter. The devices with new CM13 nightlies are:
These being nightlies, expect bugs and instability so you may be better off flashing them on devices that aren't your daily drivers.Read More
I'm not going to tell you why you may want to install a custom recovery. You already know you need one to replace your default ROM or make carbon copies of your device's current state. And you know that the Team Win Recovery Project's custom recovery is at the top of your list of options.
Now TWRP has arrived for quite a few devices, including a buttload of Xiaomi phones. We're talking about the Mi 2 and Mi 4, along with their various versions. There's the Redmi 3, Redmi Note 2, and even the Mi Pad. These make the list not long after the Redmi Note 3 did the same.
