Moto X gets fun new ‘chop twice’ feature for flashlight control

Moto X gets fun new ‘chop twice’ feature for flashlight control

Turning on the flashlight on your Android phone takes a few swipes, typically. It’s not hard, but fumbling in the dark can be annoying. Bright screens can blind you while you find your way to the flashlight. Handy, the feature for smartphones is also largely unnatural. We’re used to flicking a switch on a flashlight in-hand, not swiping through screens! Continuing on the gesture-driven path, Motorola has added ‘chop twice for flashlight’, which brings the flashlight feature up on the Moto X with a few swats.

This is Motorola's continuation of their most successful smartphone-selling setup to date - inexpensive, yet not cheap - easily one of the best new smartphones for the price it's being offered at globally this year.

DROID Turbo, Moto Maxx gets rebranded as Moto Turbo in India

DROID Turbo, Moto Maxx gets rebranded as Moto Turbo in India

As teased by Indian e-tailer Flipkart last month, the DROID Turbo is indeed coming to the sub-continent. Or rather the Moto Maxx. Or rather officially the Moto Turbo. They say that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, and that is especially true here in this case.
