    Motorola Starts Selling Moto 360s with Metal Bands For $50-$80 More

    If the only thing keeping you from picking up a Moto 360 was that your only choice for the watch-band material was leather (and not that Android Wear is still a bit wonky) — good news! After quite a few leaks suggesting as much, Motorola is now officially selling the Moto 360 with metal bands.

    Droid Turbo Review: Motorola’s Amped-Up Moto X Excels Where It Counts

    Motorola barely let the 2014 Moto X sink in before announcing essentially a beefed-up version of the same. The Verizon-exclusive Droid Turbo is a Moto X with a better battery and a better camera, but in a package that’s hard to describe as an “improvement” on the original. Where the Verizon phone excels, however, it really excels, which makes it a tempting proposition for… Read More

    Hands On With The Motorola Droid Turbo From Verizon

    The latest Droid device is fully unveiled, and it’s truly a beast of a device. The most prominent and highlighted feature of the phone, it’s ability to charge quickly and last for up to 48 hours, is hard to test properly in a matter of hours. However, the look, feel, and general build of the device is already making an impression on me. Read More

    Motorola’s Moto X Should Be Your Next Android Phone

    As we enter the era of the ubiquitous Big Phone, it’s refreshing to hold something like the slim and light second-generation Moto X. Priced at $500 unlocked and about $99 with a contract, this 5.2-inch phone with 1080p OLED screen and Gorilla Glass front is a step beyond the latest from LG and, while not as feature-rich as the Samsung Galaxy S5, well worth a look as an upgrade to… Read More
