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.
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.
Ready for the OnePlus 5? It’ll be announced in less than two weeks, so we’re almost there. And today OnePlus added to the hype with a brief video teasing the phone.
The HTC U11 arrived at Talk Android, so it’s time for an unboxing video.
Now it’s official. Days after seeing an image of its next phone leak, OnePlus has decided to share a new image that confirms one of the key features. The OnePlus 5 is going to have a two-camera setup on the back capable of capturing pictures in two versions merged together for enhanced clarity.
Andy Rubin’s Essential has just secured a ton of cash ahead of the launch of its first smartphone, and is now valued at $900 million to $1 billion. That valuation has locked in $300 million cash for Essential to play with, which is a ton of cash for a startup, even if it’s headed by an ex-founder of Android.
Wish you could get the Samsung Galaxy S8 in a different color? Your lucky day is coming. A color option previously limited to select countries will soon be offered in the United States.
OnePlus didn’t want it to happen, but it happened.
There’s finally a launch event scheduled for the 2017 flagship.
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.
It’s likely the OnePlus 5 debuts sometime early this summer, meaning we’re just weeks away from seeing a new high-end phone on the scene. Teasers and reports, though, are giving us information early. And the latest leak involves the phone’s design.
It’s been a couple years of missteps for the Taiwanese company, and HTC plans on turning things around by fostering a brigade of trolls.
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.
OnePlus has always championed the phrase “Never Settle,” but if you’re still rocking a OnePlus 2, it looks like you’re going to have to settle for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. According to the company’s support team, the OnePlus 2 is now officially a dated device and won’t be receiving anymore software updates, despite being less than two years old.
