    Even though Motorola hasn't gained the amount of praise we'd want it to have for its 2013 line-up, that doesn't change the fact that the company did raise the bar significantly with devices like the Moto X. You can fully interact with the device without having to pick-it-up, and as sci-fi as that would've sounded just a year ago, people have become fond of its simplicity and accuracy. That said, even though the company has gained a new owner, it hasn't stopped working on improving its offerings. The company's Touchless controls app will soon be enhanced with a new "What's up" command that ...

    For a day crammed between a holiday and a weekend, you could forgive today for being a bit of no-man's-land when it comes to smartphone news, with nothing interesting happening besides word arriving of a few more Black Friday deals. In spite of that, we're seeing some relatively interesting news come down the pipeline, including that of new editions of some popular Androids. We already looked at a couple additional color options for Samsung's Galaxy Note 3, and now we turn our attention to the Motorola Droid Ultra family over on Verizon. Remember earlier this week when we showed you that ...

    Everyone looks for different things in a smartphone. Maybe you care about high-speed data, while your friend might be more concerned with the availability of certain key apps. That makes it difficult to give one-size-fits-all opinions on phones, but we sure endeavor to do our best, particularly through our Scored for Me matrix. But even with all these differences of opinion, we still expect certain trends to show through: no one's going to argue that the LG Optimus F5 is the superior phone to the G2, for instance. That's why Consumer Reports is getting a lot of attention this week, after ...

    Device security is very important, especially as we begin to trust our smartphones with more and more sensitive data – work emails, private conversations, or even banking information. Personal devices, such as smartphones and tablets, are far more private than most other types of electronics. As such, they should be treated with care and likely password or PIN protected. The unfortunate side effect is having to type a PIN or password dozens of times every day, which is quite tedious and can grow to be rather frustrating. However, Motorola's latest accessory aims to end this dreaded ...

    It's just a few hours to go until we'll be able to bring you some hands-on accounts of the new Motorola Moto X, but in the meantime, some early software has just arrived for the handset, helping connect Motorola smartphones with your home PC. Motorola has published Motorola Connect to the Chrome store, offering compatibility with the Moto X, as well as the new Droid Ultra, Maxx, and Mini for Verizon. Once installed, the extension will let users of the Chrome browser get notifications of incoming calls and texts right on their computer screens, and even reply to texts without the need to ...

    The Moto X goes official in under a day, but when does that mean you'll actually be able to get your hands on the Android? Rumors have seemed split into two camps, with the bulk looking to late August availability, but there also being talk about the phone going up for sale tomorrow, right on launch day. Today we get some new support for one of those ideas, as well as get some insight into when Verizon could be getting the HTC One and all those other new Motorola models. The latest Verizon leak throws another call of support out for a late August Moto X release, claiming the carrier is ...

    Earlier today Verizon, the biggest mobile service provider in the United States, announced three new smartphones from Google/Motorola under the Droid brand: the Droid Mini, Droid Ultra and Droid Maxx. The latter of which promises to bring massive battery life. Sure, sure, it's got a 10-megapixel, 1080P-capable camera, a 5-inch screen, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, a 1.7 dual-core CPU running quad-core graphics, wireless charging, and is topped off with LTE. What I'm really interested in is the battery: 3500 mAh, and capable of running 48 hours without being charged. That's massive! Many other ...

    The new Motorola has arrived … or something like that. The Moto X still isn't officially official, although we received an invitation to an August 1st press event titled Moto X. But today, in a joint press event with Verizon, three new Motorola handsets were announced: Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, and Droid Mini. Gone is the RAZR branding, to no surprise, but Motorola hasn't severed ties with its penchant for thinness. The Droid Ultra is an impressive 7.18mm thick, the Maxx is 8.5mm thick, and the Mini is 8.9mm thick. And with exception to dimensions, display size, storage, and battery ...

    With pre-orders now open for the just-launched Motorola Droid Ultra, Maxx, and Mini, we're continuing to get new information about these models. We knew they would have 10-megapixel cameras, but have now managed to confirm that these will indeed be the RGBC components we heard rumored, and we've also discovered a little about what Verizon's planning for the future of its Droid brand. We first started hearing about this RGBC business in the context of the Moto X, which was said to have a Clear Pixel camera using the system. Shortly thereafter, we heard a similar claim made in regards to the ...

    Last week, Verizon sent out invitations to an event scheduled for today, and it sure seemed to be implying that we'd finally see these Motorla Ultra-series devices – the Ultra, Maxx, and Mini we've been talking about for weeks now – go official. Sure enough, the carrier has just announced the trio, all running some new Motorola silicon. The phones run what Motorola calls its X8 Mobile Computing System, but don't let that lead you to believe we're talking about an octa-core setup – at least not in any conventional sense. Instead, Motorola is counting a whole lot beyond general ...

    Rumors addressing upcoming Motorola smartphones have lately been split into two camps: it seems like the bulk of the info we've been dealing with has concerned the Moto X, but recently there's been a flurry of activity dealing with a few new Droid models for Verizon. Picking up where the RAZR HD and its kin left off, it's been looking like we could be about to see the launch of a Droid Ultra, Maxx, and Mini. Leaked advertising material has been pointing towards an early August launch, but now it looks like the carrier wants to make things official even earlier still, sending out invites to ...

    Curious about some of the new Motorola Droid models we've been hearing about? We recently had to take some of our focus away from the Moto X when a number of rumors and leaks started detailing a new wave of Droid-branded Androids, apparently set to be the follow-ups to last year's Droid RAZR HD models. Those have included the Droid Ultra, Maxx, and Mini. We've already seen renders of the first two, and today we get a look at the Mini, as well as a camera sample from the Ultra, and what looks like leaked advertising material for the Maxx. That's all three of them up top, giving us a proper ...

    This weekend was a busy one for Motorola leaks, and following up all that Moto X action from the previous week, we got a couple new looks at other upcoming Androids from the manufacturer. First up we had a supposed render of the Droid Maxx, followed thereafter by a shot of what just might be the Droid Ultra. The latter is back on our radar today, with the arrival of a render of its own. Though now in black, the render does seem to closely resemble that purported image of the Ultra, not to mention the Maxx. That shouldn't be that surprising, as if we're comparing this family to the Droid ...

    The image above is claimed to be a press render of the Verizon Motorola DROID MAXX. It is, as leaked, expected to land on Big Red's line-up later on this year but aside from that there's no other information to go by. "MAXX"-named phones are usually higher-battery-capacity-equipped flavors of a model, and, like in the RAZR's case, the DROID MAXX above is believed to be the extended battery flavor of the Droid Ultra we've heard about recently. There are no specs or anything else in addition to the image above but you can tell it's made out of kevlar, like previous Motorola phones, and it ...
