Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus are official, both priced below $200

Not everyone needs a $700 phone or even a $300 phone, so Lenovo is keeping the Moto E series alive by introducing two new devices meant for budget-conscious consumers. The Moto Z is high-end, the Moto G is mid-range, and the Moto E is low-end. It’s noticeable in the pricing for each. What you pay is what you get, and the Moto E gives you the necessities of a smartphone on the cheap.

The Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus cost just $129 and $179, respectively.

Where to buy the HTC U11 in the U.S.

You know you want to squeeze it. First you must buy it.

The HTC U11 has been released in the United States following its announcement last month. It won’t be an easy phone to find, though, for traditional consumers. HTC hasn’t partnered with numerous carriers and retailers to sell the phone. Instead you’re only able to get the U11 from three spots.

Amazon shifts gears, set to release a new phone with Google Play

Amazon’s line of Fire tablets (and ill-fated phone) exclusively use Amazon’s own app store, completely forgoing Google Play and all of the other Google services that go with it. Sure, you can use a browser and side load some apps, but for the most part you don’t have an easy way to access things like Gmail, YouTube, and Google’s marketplaces for music, movies, and TV shows.

The DROIDs you are looking for will be back on Verizon

Earlier this week Motorola launched the new Moto Z2 Play and for the U.S. market, the exclusive carrier will be Verizon, although an unlocked version is described as being available “later this summer.” Normally one would expect a Verizon exclusive phone from Motorola to be adorned with DROID branding, but that is not the case with the Moto Z2 Play. If you are a fan of the DROID branding, the good news is that Verizon appears to have plans to bring it back in the future.
