Of all the technological achievements of the Star Wars universe – faster-than-light space travel, antigravity, blue milk – the one that seems most ubiquitous is probably holography. Holographic projectors are all over the place. So why are they so crappy?
The Moto X Style is Motorola’s newest flagship phone, but this year, the company did things a little differently, by launching a second smartphone that’s nearly as interesting as the first: the Moto X Play. However, it was unclear whether the Play would be coming to the US at all.
Your smartphone has a terrible battery life. I can say this with confidence because it is universally true. Phones today have ludicrous screens and processors that rival the supercomputers of days gone by, but they can't last a day. We need more thick-ass phones that make it through the weekend.
Want a phone with seriously killer battery life? I hope you're on Verizon, because it looks like the new Droid Turbo was built specifically for you. An image that showed up on TaoBao (basically Chinese Ebay) says that sucker will pack a mammoth 3,900 mAh battery. That is a lot of power.
Rejoice, for the first fully functional, 1:1 scale R2-D2 is at last a reality. And it's amazing. As amazing as this video of Darth Lily—the cutest girl in the galaxy—hugging him.
From now on, Motorola will be the only company that makes Droid-branded phones for Verizon says CNET. But of course that won't stop half the world from calling their Samsung and HTC Android phones Droids. Sigh.
Verizon showed off a whole slew of new Droid smartphones today—the Droid MAXX, Droid Ultra, and Droid Mini. And with all three smartphones the keyword is battery life. Update: Hands on!
The HTC Droid DNA and Motorola's Droid RAZR HD/RAZR MAXX HD are all sweet handsets. The DNA of course has an edge in terms of screen and display while the RAZRs' battery lives are unmatched in the Android ecosystem. Sure the HTC One will be frickin' awesome when it does eventually show up but "later this spring" is…
Way back in the mists of 2009, before Siri was even a twinkle in Apple's eye, Verizon was planning to add the app to all of its Android smartphones. Sadly for the carrier, that didn't last.
The smartphone market of 2012 has seen some heated competition. The usual contenders all released solid hardware. But the dynamic between them changed, too—Windows Phone arrived as a serious third OS option, and 2012 ended with exciting new models of iPhone and Android devices. Here's a look at the best new products…
AT&T has the One X. Sprint has the EVO 4G LTE. But it's been a long while since Verizon customers had an HTC flagship to call their own.
You know how it takes OMG like foreverz to get the newest version of Android on your phone? Motorola has a new plan that'll get you its latest and greatest software long before you normally would. It's called Test Drive.
Last year's Droid RAZR paired a revelatory design with a lousy screen and lousier battery life. This year's updates—the Droid RAZR HD and the Droid RAZR MAXX HD—put both of those weaknesses squarely in their crosshairs.
Calling it their "biggest launch since the original RAZR" (no sniggering in the back row, please), Motorola's RAZRi is the first phone with a 2GHz Intel processor; however good that may be. Sounds impressive though, non?
Android phones have been getting bigger and bigger, and that's not everyone's cup of tea. As Motorola said at unveiling of the Droid RAZR M, "Some people just want a smaller phone." Does this phone, designed to fill that niche, still deliver on performance?
