    Wearables, man. It used to be that if you wanted to be at the forefront of technology, having a smartphone in your pocket was all you needed. But now with smartwatches and the likes of Google Glass being picked up by new users every day, living on the bleeding edge means strapping a bunch of that gear right on to your body. Some of these futurists are taking things one step further, and today Motorola shares one of the ways users are doing just that, introducing a “tattoo” that lets Moto X owners unlock their phones. Well, the VivaLnk Digital Tattoo may describe itself as such, but ...

    Sure, the Moto X might be starting to show its age a little. As of next month, it will be one whopping year old. But it still seems to be holding its own. We'll let you be the judge of whether it's the phone's sheer quality, the personalization of the hardware, or the great value the Moto X is at such discounted prices. It could also be the amount of lightweight, yet very useful, software features. Unlike the last two videos like this, we covered many of the Moto X's defining features in detail – Trusted Devices, Skip, Touchless Control, etc. No less, since we gave the One M8 and Galaxy ...

    The Android 4.4.4 update has just been made official, though Android 4.4.3 remains young -- it only came out last week, after all. The latest device to be updated to this no-longer-newest version of Android is Sprint's Motorola Moto X. The features in Android 4.4.3, along with a couple extra Motorola goodies, have all made their way to the device in the Sprint Moto X Android 4.4.3 update. First and foremost are the Android 4.4.3 changes, which are mainly bug fixes for stability, security, and other non-user-facing areas. The refreshed look in the Dialer app has been brought over to the ...

    HTC announced a pretty fabulous program back in February with the introduction of HTC Advantage. The stuff about Android updates and HTC Backup was good news on its own, but the really stand-out feature was how HTC committed to giving owners of One-series devices one free screen replacement for any damage taken during the first six months of ownership – even if that cracked screen was your own fault. Sure, companies like Apple had offered screen-replacement services before, but those have been optional plans smartphone owners had to pay separately for. Now it's emerging that a similar ...

    Nine months into the phone's lifespan, and Motorola continues to throw a lot of support behind the Moto X. Despite sales of the phone never quite reaching the level Motorola hoped for (a failure that necessitates the company closing-up the Texas facility where the Moto X has thus far been assembled for US sales), Motorola continues to deliver additional options for the already highly customizable smartphone, as well as comes up with new promotions to capture the public's interest. This week, Motorola has a little of each ready for us, as that try-before-you-by promo we heard about on ...

    iOS 8 is here –in Beta form, at least– and (surprise, surprise) we've got some opinions. For the last Weekly podcast to begin with a "0," we bring in the big guns to discuss Apple's new platform: a four-man team that includes our resident iOS experts, one of whom joins in from the blazing heat of a car baking in the North Carolina sun just to tell us his take on the iPhone 6 and how it will/won't/might end up being a phablet. Of course we don't stop with Apple: a panoply of mobile devices, from the LG G3 to the Galaxy S5 Active to the Motorola X+1, awaits our speculation, adulation, ...

    It feels like hardly a month goes by when we don't learn about some manner of new Moto X offer: a hundred dollars off here, new low prices for wood back options there... even this far post-launch, Motorola seems very interested in keeping the public interested in its highly customizable Android. Even as our attention turns to the X+1, Motorola, isn't slowing down its promotions for the original X, and we just told you about the latest deal earlier this week. Well, now we've already got a new one, and it sounds like just the thing for people who are curious about the Moto X but have been ...

    For some people, the 720p resolution on the display of the Moto X is a deal breaker. We don't agree with that, as we've highly praised the device in our reviews and videos. Still, there is a clear need for Motorola to boost the resolution of the Moto X in its future variant, which is being rumored to be the Moto X+1. If you were wondering if there actually is a Moto x+1 in the works, well, a recent software tweak actually leaks its existence. So, as the story goes, the recent Android 4.4.3 update to the Moto X brought a fix to the recent annoyance to international consumers that didn't ...

    Last year, Motorola took everyone by surprise. After months upon months of rumors, Motorola's 2013 flagship wasn't at all what it was cracked up to be. Rumors suggested it would be the phone everyone had been waiting for – all the best specs, the best display, killer everything. Turns out, the Moto X was not any of that. Its display was only 720p when practically every other flagship came with a 1080p display. It came with a custom processor configuration – not a Snapdragon 600 or 800 – which Motorola called the X8 mobile computing system. Nothing about it was overpowered or ...

    If you've been itching for a Moto X, even amidst rumors of an upcoming successor, now may be a good time to bite the bullet on Motorola's 2013 flagship. Motorola is hosting a Moto X 32GB deal, heavily discounting the device to $349. The price, as Motorola's email to select previous customers reads, is $100 off from Motorola's usual asking price. Weirdly enough, this information is inaccurate -- you can purchase an off-contract Moto X through Motorola's Moto Maker customization service for $399 at the time of this writing. Either way, buyers are receiving a substantial discount on a phone ...

    Motorola has come a long way since the days of MOTOBLUR and a casual attitude towards Android updates, and its latest family of smartphones hasn't only offered extremely pared-down, near stock Android experiences, but delivered platform updates with speed rivaling even what we get from straight-up Nexus devices. Today we see the latest proof of just how nimble Motorola has become when it's time for a new update to arrive, as it gets started updating its own phones to Android 4.4.3 just one day after the build saw its official release. Considering how we're still waiting for OTA updates for ...

    Motorola just announced that its short-lived effort to assemble smartphones in the United States is drawing to a close, with plans to shutter the Fort Worth plant that put together the Moto X before the end of the year. Motorola had big dreams for this project, not just bringing more tech jobs to the States, but helping to speed distribution of the sort of custom orders possible with all of Moto Maker's options. Unfortunately, the project's just been too expensive to maintain, and Moto X production will shift to Motorola's facilities abroad – even though Moto Maker customizations will ...

    There were a lot of reasons to be excited about the Moto X when Motorola introduced the phone last summer, and one of its more unusual claims to fame was that the handset would be assembled right here in the US. By contrast, we're used to smartphones being fully manufactured before they're imported into the country. We had our concerns that employing a US workforce might drive the phone's cost up, but not only did the Moto X end up being one of the most affordable, best values around, but the plant's US location allowed customized phones to arrive on users' doorsteps just days after their ...
