[Video] Unboxing the Moto Z2 Play

Who’s up for some unboxing action? Our Justin Herrick has his hands on the Moto Z2 Play, a handset that features a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 626 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. There’s a 12MP rear camera, a 5MP front snapper, and a 3,000mAh battery which is slightly smaller than the previous model. The design is immediately recognizable as a Moto Z device and it is naturally compatible with Moto Mods.

The Moto Z2 Play is currently available from Verizon although an unlocked version with slightly higher specs will go on sale later in the summer for $499. Without further ado, though, join us after the break to see Justin unbox the handset. 

[Video] Huawei Watch 2: Unboxing & First Impressions

Huawei launched its first Android Wear smartwatch back in 2015, imaginatively named Huawei Watch which was widely praised for its smart appearance boasting a stainless steel, fine leather, and sapphire crystal design. It is safe to say it was the most beautiful Android Wear you could buy at the time. Fast-forward to MWC 2017, and Huawei went in a totally different direction with its follow-up, the Watch 2, going for a chunkier, sporty approach with a rubber strap and sporting Android Wear 2.o.

[Video] Unboxing the Huawei MediaPad M3

With Samsung having delayed the launch of the Tab S3, Google giving the segment a miss last year, and Sony seemingly abandoning the market altogether, there’s a dearth of premium tablets to be found.

One company that is attempting to grab a bigger share of the tablet market is Huawei, whose latest offering, the MediaPad M3, boasts an 8.4-inch 2560 x 1600 IPS display, the Kirin 950 Octa-core processor (the same processor found in the Honor 8), 4GB of RAM, a premium build, and stereo speakers designed in partnership with the audio experts, Harman Kardon.

The MediaPad M3 was announced at IFA 2016, and its premium build quality impressed us at the time during our brief hands on. Join us after the break to see our Justin Herrick unboxing the Huawei MediaPad M3 tablet.

Watch the OnePlus 3T geting unboxed on a MIG 15 fighter jet to celebrate European launch

oneplus_3t_extreme_unboxing

There wasn’t a whole lot wrong with the OnePlus 3, and our very own Jared Peters went as far as to say that the “Third time’s the charm” in his review. That didn’t deter OnePlus from retiring the OP3 from service, though, and replacing it with a slightly updated version called the OnePlus 3T that went on sale in the US on November 22, and has just been released in Europe. What better way is there to celebrate the European release of the OnePlus 3T than an unboxing video while on a MIG 15 fighter jet undergoing high-G maneuvers? Join us after the break for the embedded video.

LeEco wasn’t a brand we’ve seen much of in the west until the Chinese electronics company entered the US market last month with products ranging from bikes and accessories to televisions and a couple of smartphones, the Le S3 and Le Pro 3. While both handsets feature an aluminum build, a 5.5-inch Full HD display and run Android 6.0 Marshmallow, the Le Pro 3, with its Snapdragon 821 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, is the higher specced variant. Join us after the break to watch our very own Justin Herrick unbox the Le Pro 3.

We were in Munich last week covering the launch of Huawei’s latest flagship, the Mate 9 and came away with a solid first impression of the aluminum-framed handset with its 5.9-inch Full HD display and dual camera setup.

Google announced its new range of smartphones back on October 4th, the Pixel, and Pixel XL, featuring AMOLED displays, Snapdragon 821 processors, 4GB RAM, 32GB/128GB internal storage and what seems to be a very capable rear camera with a 12.3MP sensor. Besides spending a boatload of cash on the marketing, Google has organized a deal with UBreakIFix to make screen replacements as easy as possible, and Verizon has stated that it will issue updates for its locked Pixel handsets as and when Google pushes them. The Pixel handsets carry higher price tags than the Nexus phones of yesteryear, so what do you get for your money? Join us after the break to find out as our very own Justin Herrick unboxes the Pixel XL.

If you are more interested in keeping a few bucks in your pocket instead of having a superfast powerhouse processor and quad HD screen equipped smartphone in your pocket, then the Moto G4 Play may be the ticket for you. Our Justin Herrick recently received a unit for review purposes and took some time to put together an unboxing video for us, which you can check out after the break.

[Video] Unboxing the LG V20

lg_v20_on_stone

With all the hoopla going on about the explosive Galaxy Note 7, it’s easy to forget that LG launched its latest flagship, the V20, just over a week ago. The successor to last year’s V10 has moved away from the V10’s textured exterior and instead appears to have taken a great deal of inspiration from the design of the modular-ish G5 that launched earlier this year. It isn’t necessarily a good move on LG’s part, as TalkAndroid’s very own Justin Herrick will mention while he unboxes the V20 and shows off its secondary ticker display in the video embedded below.

So, Samsung held an Unpacked event yesterday (which you can catch up on here) to launch the Galaxy Note 7 featuring a 5.7-inch curved QHD display, IP68 certification, an enhanced S-Pen, Iris scanner, as well as USB Type-C (Check out the handset’s full specifications here). One thing you can guarantee when a new handset is launched is outlandish unboxing videos. While some will race to produce videos showing the Note 7 being tortured, or unboxed in extreme surroundings, Verizon has chosen to go the cutesy route with its unboxing video and its live doodle. Join us after the break for the embedded video.

[Video] Unboxing the Moto Z and Moto Z Force DROID Edition

With new versions of what will be their flagship line of devices for 2016, Lenovo decided to go in a different design direction with the Moto Z series of smartphones compared to the previous Moto X devices. The question everyone is waiting to have answered is whether this move will pay off for Lenovo and they can remain as a competitor in the top-tier device market. TalkAndroid’s own Jared Peters managed to get a couple of the Verizon-exclusive-for-now devices, the Moto Z DROID Edition and the Moto Z Force DROID Edition for an unboxing and some initial impressions. Keep reading to see what Jared thought about the devices.

Verizon and Lenovo will be holding an event later this week when they are expected to announce pricing and release details for the Moto Z DROID Edition and the Moto Z Force DROID Edition. Buyers looking for the latest flagship from Lenovo will no doubt be interested in those details despite the disappointment that the version for other carriers is still some time off. Other consumers interested in Lenovo’s mid-tier phones are in a better position as the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus will be available for order starting on Monday. Here at TalkAndroid, our own Justin Herrick received each of the new phones and put together an unboxing video so folks placing their order have a better idea of what to expect when they receive their new phone.

Luckily, if you have an Android Wear smartwatch you can now change straps, and thus the appearance of the watch, with the recently announced swap-and-switch MODE bands. Justin has got his hands on a couple of MODE bands, which you can see getting unboxed in the video below.
