    We have a slathering of Moto Z coverage for you right now, but a lot more ahead as well. In the meantime, we thought you should know that Verizon is now opening up pre-orders for the Moto Z Droid Edition and the Moto Z Force Droid Edition on its website. The Moto Z Droid will work out to $26 per month on a two-year payment plan ($624 full retail) and the Moto Z Force Droid at $30 a month ($720). Sales officially begin on July 28. You can also get up to $300 in credit for these phones by trading one in, even if it's got a cracked screen. Also at Verizon's site, you can pick up one Moto Mod ...

    The hard grade of disbelief we give to budget phones out of China these days has to do with the fact that they have fingerprint sensors. Yeah, we know, kinda crazy. It takes a bit more than a few dollars, though, to not only get the component, but get it to work properly and in a decent fashion. Nevertheless, phone after phone in China has made it happen. ZTE is making it happen in the US with the debut of the spiritual successor to the ZMax 2, the ZMax Pro for MetroPCS. There's a six-inch, full HD display with a Snapdragon 617 and 2GB of RAM. The main camera has 13 megapixels of ...

    Demand in Sweden for the HP Elite x3 has been pretty brisk. At least it was fast enough to bring delivery dates for the phone back by three days so far. HP is already selling the phone in its dual-SIM configuration for a nasty 8,624 kr ($1,009) at its site for Sweden. And people could order it and get it delivered as early as July 22 — a week from when it was first made available. Since then, the earliest deliveries have been pushed back to July 25. If you want your Elite x3 really early, be prepared to pay dearly. And pay more to get it moved to where you are. HP recently decided to ...

    As with the Galaxy S7, it seems that pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 7 should be coming the moment the Samsung Unpacked event ends on August 2. It's only a rumor right now, but it shouldn't really matter when the pre-orders kick in as much as how much more we're getting if we decide to bite the bullet for a Note 7. What perks will there be? A wireless quick charger? A free clack-on keyboard or Gear VR headset? $50 off the retail price and some headphones? And, ultimately, how long will this pre-sale last? Those are some bigger questions we'll leave you with. Source: GalaxyClub Via: BGR

    The phone comes inside a VR headset. What more can you ask for? Well, a lot, and we're finally able to tell you a lot about the Alcatel Idol 4S. It's a rather powerful mid-range phone that we've been waiting for since MWC and after some delay, it's finally ready for sale in the US. Not much has changed since our hands-on in February, including its Gothic and glassy build. It comes in any color you'd like, as long as it's dark gray. You'll find some reserved, but powerful 3.6W front-facing stereo speakers tuned by Waves Audio and certified by JBL, delivering some Hi-Fi noise to your ...

    The Nubia Z11 was only just announced yesterday and already the ZTE company is gloating about a milestone with its fandom. It announced one million "registrations" made in 24 hours with more to come before the July 5 deadline. It's not a OPPO-busting number, nor is it even up to Xiaomi's levels, but for ZTE, it could do plenty worse. Nubia's own webstore, Tmall.com, JD.com and Suning.com will open up sales the following day at 10am local time. If you're decidedly outside the Great Firewall of China, you can also get your standard Nubia Z11 at oppomart for $499. If you want 6GB of RAM and ...

    Michael Fisher, formerly of Pocketnow, was smitten with a certain "intelligent object" the moment he first set his eyes on it. He wanted one of these things for over a year. He pre-ordered one today. Now, you can, too. Monohm has taken the Runcible, "a smart pocket watch for the post-smartphone era" to crowdfunding site Indiegogo with a goal of raising $250,000 in 15 days. As of this post, the fund is close to 20 percent of that line with the help of 113 backers. Monohm aims to have the production workflow be locally-sourced and locally-based around Northern California. The wood for the ...

    Every so often, OPPO updates its A-series phones. They're always floating around to give those who don't like selfies and who don't like mid-range flagships just something, anything to work with.  And that's what we're dealing with here with the A59: decency. The gold-colored, dual-SIM, 32GB variant of the phone is currently on pre-sale through June 18 for ¥1,799 or $274.

    The unique two-toned NuAns NEO brought a new sense of zen to Windows 10 Mobile. We didn't particular think it fair, though, to have the phone at CES before selling it only in Japan. But beyond word that the people at Japanese manufacturer Trinity were going to put out something other than the NEO for its international audience, we haven't heard much since January. However, NuAns is announcing that it is pushing forward to sell the NEO to the world and will launch a Kickstarter campaign the week of June 27 to field pre-orders. It's no HP Elite x3 in terms of specs (at least there's ...

    Sure, LeEco may have announced the Le Max 2 in April with all the bells and whistles of these 6GB of RAM. But we've had to wait a little while before the company was able to make any of that hunky goodness available to us. Well, pre-orders have started lighting as the 6GB RAM and 64GB storage option has on LeMall.com. It'll take a few weeks yet before phones start shipping out, but at least it will do so at a price of ¥2,499 ($381). For foreigners, LeTVMart also has that variant of the Le Max 2 on pre-sale for $499. Source: LeMall, LeTVMart Via: GSMArena

    It's a slow and sure launch of Sony's new Xperia X line of smartphones. Of course the major Asian markets have it, but so does most of Europe and it may be the case that the United States will — sooner or way later. India has a sure thing going for it with Amazon.in taking the online pre-orders for the Sony Xperia X. The 64GB model comes in black, white, lime gold and rose gold. Sony's also offering its SBH70 Stereo Bluetooth Headset and some Rs. 2,700 in content from Amazon Kindle, Gameloft, Sony LIV and Hungama Play for free with the Xperia X. Both that phone and the also-announced ...

    Sony's going through with its Europe distribution plan of its new Xperia X smartphones. It recently added the Xperia XA Ultra, a camera-ful little phone, into that plan. We're now seeing that the Japanese manufacturer is setting that device into pre-order motion as well as UK site Unlocked Mobiles has the phone available for £298.98 with shipments starting June 27. Britons can get the Xperia XA direct from Sony for £239 with boxes out the door beginning June 20. Where's the £60 difference? An extra gig of RAM, a larger screen with better resolution and double the selfie cam ...

    Japanese manufacturer that is not Sony, FREETEL, has taken its baby steps to launching its unlocked phones in the US market. We saw the new company back at the major trade shows earlier this year, now it's time to get pre-orders started for a couple of phones. The Priori 3 is a barebones entry-level phone with Android 5.1, a quad-core MediaTek MTK6735P, a 4.5-inch FWVGA (480p) display, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. The phone is available for pre-order for $89, 10 percent off its list price, and will ship in about four weeks. Also on Android Lollipop is this higher-end Kiwami, with a ...

    A phone called the Xiaomi Mi Max officially launched last week and the starting gate has since been rendered invisible. The company has been giving away a few lots of the phone to some lucky Weibo users, but the real roadshow is still set for May 17 — and that's only to sell 100,000 units of the lower-speccd version with a Snapdragon 650, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. Kinda sad to see that the masses will have to keep waiting. And by masses, we mean 10 million pre-orders. The pre-order tally was up to 8 million within the first couple days of availability last week, so we've seen the ...

    In specs Chinese trust. Apparently, HTC couldn't take that maxim seriously enough to have released its full-power HTC 10 in China. Instead, pre-orders went up on TMall and JD.com for the HTC 10 Lifestyle — the exact same flagship as the HTC 10 that everyone else gets ... except for the mid-range Snapdragon 652 that's in place of the Snapdragon 820 and 3GB of RAM instead of 4GB. While the phone does come standard with 64GB, the price stacks up to ¥3,799 or a fairly stiff $583. Focus Taiwan is reporting that after 11 days on the market, only 251 units have been pre-ordered. HTC has yet ...

    Oculus is about to be more visible than ever before this weekend as the company can finally stop going it alone in sales. Its Rift headset will be coming to the Microsoft Store online and Amazon on May 6 at noon Eastern. It'll also hit the brick-and-mortars with 48 Best Buy stores nationwide demonstrating and selling the virtual reality rig starting on May 7 with more locations soon to stock the Rift. Oculus warns of limited inventories as it's already barely keeping up with pre-order volume. If you already did put in a pre-order and are arranging to get a demo and a purchase at a Best ...

    If a 44mm smartwatch makes sense for your wrist, you may interested in either Huawei Watch for Women — one is encrusted with Swarovski zirconia and named "Jewel" while the plainer one is named "Elegant." We got to know them at CES and it was a full month ago that the Google Store started listing, but not selling the two. Google's still not selling them, but Best Buy, Newegg and B&H are to varying extents. With Best Buy, it only has an entry for the "Jewel" on its site, though it looks more like the Elegant — the picture and the price of $449.99 are the tells. Orders will get ...

    Sony's revised smartphone strategy has brought us an upper mid-ranger and a lower mid-ranger this year. We've been teased for a while about what the end of the Xperia Z line will mean for the prospective buyer. The teasing continues, but if you live in the United Kingdom, you can act upon it. Amazon.co.uk has both the Xperia X and the Xperia XA up for pre-order with delivery beginning May 20. The Xperia X, as a reminder, runs on a Snapdragon 650 and has both a five-inch full HD display and a 23-megapixel main camera. As such, it gets a pretty devastating price tag of £499.99 ($720). The ...

    HTC has its 2020 vision and its all somewhat pixelated and awesome and it'll make you light-headed if the company's head's in it for too long. We're talking about the Vive, of course, but the chief of the unit overseeing the product, Wang Tsung-ching, is banking on it. During this year's China Green Company Annual Conference, Wang said that HTC's VR output and sales will be more important than its smartphones within the next four years. Wang also said that virtual reality technology will have great applications in professional uses like mental and physical health assessment. It's not ...

    The "Hipster Troll Carwash" has become the "Hot Topic Craze" in mobile tech, at least for this microsecond. HTC has found its footing once again with the HTC 10 and with a clear month until Motorola — under Lenovo — has something to offer, we'll see a full month's of worth of sales. But it has to start somewhere. In the US, Verizon said it has first dibs for carriage. In the UK, it's Three that has started pre-orders for the phone with deliveries targeted for May 6. Three is currently only offering the phone purchased with a two-year contract plan and an upfront fee of £49. We'll ...

    If you're chewing on Big Red and would like to check a new phone off of your to-get list, get ready to wait. And then you can hit the decks. April 29 is the day when Verizon will begin pre-orders for the HTC 10. Brick-and-mortar stores will also start showing off demonstration units — known to us as "exclusive in-store previews" through a statement provided to Droid Life — on that date. Verizon claims it will be first in the US to carry the HTC 10. Many sites, including ours, have reviews up for the device, but hey, seeing (and touching) is believing. Even if you're copping a feel from ...

    If you're super-duper interested in kawaii novelty and don't need $1,800 or so in your wallet, you should probably buy one of Sharp's latest products, developed in collaboration with the University of Tokyo: RoBoHoN. Yes, that little Astro Boy/ASIMO tryhard takes calls. It has a camera, too. RoBoHoN compensates for its small screen by shooting out a 720p projection when needed. It also has a few neat dance moves it executes with its 13 servo motors controlling its limbs. And you're really supposed to talk with RoBoHoN to get things done. But it interacts with you and all your data in ...

    If you had any interest in Sony's latest phones, you had a delightful surprise sent to your inbox this morning as the company said that some "exclusive" pre-order offers are coming soon to Xperia X, Xperia XA and Xperia Ear — a Bluetooth earbud — buyers. Will it be a big enough splash to really put a dividing line in lineage between the Z and the X series? And whatever happened to the Xperia X Performance? We'll have to see what they are. Sony is also taking the opportunity to promote the Xperia X's SmartCapture technology — it can apparently lock onto a moving item and predict how ...

    Gremlins in the system have not been friendly to the staffs at the makers of the two major VR headsets. For Oculus and its Rift product, CEO Brandon Iribe has gone ahead and subsidized shipping costs for all pre-orders made through April 1. First set of Rifts are going out slower than we orig estimated, so we're giving free shipping for all pre-orders, including international. — Brendan Iribe (@brendaniribe) April 2, 2016 The first Rifts were supposed to be all out the door by April 1, but many customers are still seeing shipments unannounced.
