This summer may have been quiet for most companies in the mobile industry, but Lenovo was busy throughout the entire season. Six devices from the Moto brand have been released in the last five month, which is something we haven’t seen from anyone else but Samsung and LG in recent years. Now Lenovo is pumping out Moto devices at a rapid pace to serve as many people as it can.
The Moto G4 Play is the final device from the 2016 batch, and it’s probably the only one from the Moto G4 family that should’ve ever been released. Like the Moto Z Play, this phone is for people who want a phone from Lenovo’s mid-range line at the lowest price possible.

The new Google devices showed up on Geekbench, in the Global Certification Forum, and even a leak of some case designs showed up online. Read more
You’re probably tired of hearing about the Galaxy Note 7 recall, but it’s still the hottest (pun definitely intended) issue with Android right now. At this point, we’re just waiting for replacement devices to roll in and for Samsung to get everyone swapped out to put this to bed once and for all, which might happen sooner rather than later when people start noticing their Note 7 batteries are getting gimped via an update.
