    The trajectory of Motorola's work on wearables is pretty transparent for the immediate future: the Moto 360 is very much happening, and right now it's just a matter of waiting for sales to begin. But while the company has been quite forthcoming with its smartwatch plans, that hasn't been the case with its phones. Instead, we've been poring through leaks and rumors trying to work out what's going on with this X+1 Moto X successor. While there's been no shortage of raw info, it's been tricky to work out just what's really the X+1, and what might be other upcoming Motorola Androids. We've got ...

    A phone that's been confusing many as of late is the LG G Vista, the not-so-G3 that's allegedly on its way to the Verizon Wireless network. This possibly-rebranded G Pro 2 Lite has shown up in a multitude of renders so far, though we haven't seen specs... until now. Courtesy of @evleaks, we're taking a look at a list of alleged G Vista specs alongside a brand new image of the phone. The phone (with model number VS880) will allegedly have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8926), a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 1280x720 (720p), 1.5 GB of DDR2 RAM, and 8GB of EMMC flash storage. Its ...

    The LG G3 has been one of the most hotly-anticipated Android phones in quite a while without a doubt, and that's largely because of the reputation its predecessor, the LG G2, garnered through its availability on an assortment of carriers in the US. The G3 isn't about to buck that trend, as Verizon has just joined AT&T in announcing information about the phone's debut on its network. These Verizon LG G3 availability details include price along with a date. Without a doubt, the coolest thing about the LG G3 on Verizon is the price -- it comes in at just $99.99 when coupled with a ...

    New hardware destined for Verizon has found itself at the center of quite of stories we've brought you lately. For instance, there was that leak earlier this week that sure seemed to reveal Verizon's plans to train staff on an incoming Sony Xperia Z2. We've also been on the lookout for news of the start of Verizon LG G3 sales, as all three other major carriers have already announced their plans. There's still nothing official just yet, but today a series of Verizon rumors attempts to shed some light on what's just about to go down at big red. Word is that Verizon will announce the start of ...

    Ever since the Sony Xperia Z2 came out, we've been wondering about details surrounding a move into United States territory. Sony historically hasn't been too prompt, with examples like the T-Mobile Xperia Z1S for show. That said, several images have hit the internet straight from Sony showing a Verizon Z2 -- could this be happening? Today, a leaked Verizon document shows us that it's likely that a Sony Xperia Z2 Verizon release is imminent. It's been many months since its release, but the Xperia Z2 is still no slouch. As evidenced by our review, it stacks up well against the HTC One M8 ...

    The LG G3 did well in our review, being one of the 2014 Android flagships to want, together with the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5, and Sony Xperia Z2. However, our review was based on opinions formed while using a South Korean version of the device, with an American carrier unit not being available. That being said, thanks to @evleaks, we're seeing all (major) four US carrier models being leaked in press renders, as seen above. From left to right, we're seeing the upcoming Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile versions. Interestingly, of all four devices, only Sprint version (as ...

    A couple of weeks ago we assumed that the LG G Vista renders that emerged belonged to the LG variant of its flagship, the G3. As it turns out, these are two different phones, and you can notice the subtle differences in their designs when you compare the placement of the Verizon logo, among other minor details. More renders emerge of the G Vista today, though now that we can see the back of the phone, this just becomes more confusing. Since the rumors point to this LG G Vista being a tad wider than the LG G3, it could be that this is the Verizon G Pro 2 Lite that was recently rumored. ...

    Though the LG G Watch is currently a Bluetooth-only device (though a cellular-supporting version may be on the way), it's understandable that carriers want to stock the device as an accessory for their phones. To that effect, AT&T has already announced its intentions to stock the G Watch, and a new report mentions that a G Watch Verizon debut could be in the cards. We aren't thinking that this will be a cellular-supporting version of the watch -- that's rumored to only grace South Koreans. It won't have Verizon Wireless bloatware either, and that is a confirmed fact. The unadulterated ...

    Last month, HTC launched its One Mini 2, a scaled down, 4.5-inch, 720p version of its metal-bodied flagship. Right before that new arrived, however, we started hearing whispers of a new HTC handset for Verizon, the HTC One Remix. It wasn't long before we were putting two and two together, and rumors quickly attempted to identify the Remix as Verizon's version of the Mini 2. Since then we've had the opportunity to check out a few renders, but we haven't heard anything since the very start of June. Just when might the One Remix become available? We're not quite there yet, but a recent FCC ...

    Yesterday evening we brought you some... well, for lack of a better word, weird-looking pics of a Motorola handset. While this was supposedly the X+1 (albeit obscured by a bulky case) it really didn't look that much like the phone that had recently appeared in a number of videos. The render revealed a comparatively large rear camera lens, yet appeared to show no trace of a front-facer. And with no flash, this seemed more like a super low-end model than anything that might fill the shoes of the Moto X. We still might not have any hard answers, but this morning some new information emerges, ...

    One week back we heard about LG's model VS880, supposedly destined to find a home at Verizon as the G Vista. Fair enough - Verizon certainly has a penchant for assigning new names to the phones it picks up – but just which device would the G Vista be? Well, the G3 on Verizon is expected to be VS985, and the G2 last year was VS980. We've heard suggestions that the G Vista VS880 could be something like a G Pro 2 or a Mini version of an LG phone, but we lack model numbers for Verizon-specific variants to compare this to, and LG's numbering scheme makes it difficult to extrapolate numbers ...

    In a surprise move last night, Android 4.4.4 made an appearance and OTA updates began rolling out to select Nexus devices. Naturally, it's time to talk updates, especially for Motorola phones (some of which were updated to Android 4.4.3 during its short one-week lifespan). We now know about plans for Motorola's most recent Droid phones -- a collaboration with Verizon Wireless -- in terms of upcoming software updates. According to Motorola employee David Schuster, the Droid phones will leapfrog 4.4.3 and jump straight to 4.4.4, primarily because of an important security fix for an OpenSSL ...

    Samsung's recent devices have been notoriously difficult to root, with bounties for rooting AT&T and Verizon-branded Galaxy S5 phones shooting past $15,000 in a matter of months. It's not just Samsung, too -- more and more OEMs, possibly spurred on by carrier policies from the likes of AT&T and Verizon, have been restricting their phones from customization. Most of that changes today, though, a new root method has been unveiled that's the closest thing to an end-all-be-all we've seen so far -- Towelroot. Towelroot comes to us from developer Geohot, of XDA-Developers fame. It should ...

    Ever since Sony posted a render of an Xperia Z2 with a Verizon Wireless logo, the hype has been intense for the device. While we still don't know if it's coming or not, images of the phone certainly have us thinking it's on the way. Today, we're getting a lot more information about the device, including the model number, codename, and release timeframe. The reason for the delay of the Verizon model compared to the regular GSM one is allegedly due to the fact that an LTE-Advanced model must make its way through testing, and then the Verizon certification process (something that is infamous ...

    When LG unveiled the G3 late last month, carriers were quick to chime-in with word of their interest; within hours of the handset making its debut, we had heard from all the major US networks, saying they were looking forward to adding the G3 to their lineups this summer. OK, that at least gives us a window for when to expect the phone, but can we narrow it down a little to something more useful? Would the G3 debut right around June 21, first day of summer, or were we looking more at July, August, or (god forbid) early September? Based on the contests some of these carriers have been ...
