Star Wars Droid Turbo 2: you can now own a BB-8 phone

Star Wars Droid Turbo 2: you can now own a BB-8 phone

With Star Wars The Force Awakens' release just days away, Verizon reveals a full collection of special edition Star Wars Droid Turbo 2 devices, fully customized. Remember that R2-D2 DROID phone from Verizon released all the way back in the year 2010? That device was pretty neat, if not just a bit plain for our now more modern tastes - but wait, what's this? Verizon has once again teamed with Lucasfilm for a licensing deal that goes above and beyond what they've got with the word "Droid" (yes, that word is effectively owned by Lucasfilm and therefor Disney.) Now the Motorola-made Verizon Droid Turbo 2 is coming back with Moto Maker customizations aplenty.

Motorola’s Android 6.0 rollout finally includes some Moto E

Motorola just sent out a lot of good vibes today, some that are going to be visibly and immediately felt and one that was curiously hidden away like a treasure. Of course, with the Internet, nothing online is ever really hidden. So when Motorola didn't explicit mention that it just added the Moto E to its list of upgrade-worthy device, it was up to the netizens to discover that and shout it out for the rest of the world. Indeed, the budget friendly Moto E, or at least some models, will be getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow like some of its more expensive siblings.

Moto X Force starts pre-orders in the UK

It may not be referring to a badass team of mutant superheroes but it might very well be. The Moto X Force is the latest tough as nails smartphone from Motorola, which has been christened in the US as the DROID Turbo 2 under Verizon's banner. The rest of the world, on the other hand, will get to enjoy the smartphone without the Verizon branding or bloatware. And it seems that the Moto X Force's journey has started in the UK, where the smartphone is now available for pre-order.

Moto X Force gets drop test with iPhone and Galaxy S6

Moto X Force gets drop test with iPhone and Galaxy S6

First you're going to see an iPhone 6 (or 6s, we're not sure) dropped by the president of Motorola. Then you're going to see a Galaxy S6 dropped by this same man. Then this man is going to drop his own phone, the Moto X Force. This is the same device - essentially - as the DROID Turbo 2 shown off by Verizon earlier this week. This is just Motorola's international release version - and it appears to be just as shatterproof as the version we're seeing with the Lucasfilm-born moniker.

DROID Turbo 2 belongs in Top 3, says DxOMark

It seems that DxOMark and Motorola are forming a budding friendship. When the Moto X Style was announced, DxOMark was ready with a review of the smartphone's camera features. Now that Verizon has similarly unveiled the DROID Turbo 2, also made by Motorola, of course, DxOMark is once again first on the scene. And it's probably for a good reason too! Based on the scores from one of the most sought after digital photography authorities on the Internet, the new DROID Turbo 2 is right up there in the Top 3 of the list.

DROID Turbo 2 launches with shatterproof display

There are many features that people look for in a new phone. But perhaps one of the most desired is a screen that won't shatter when you inevitably drop it on the ground. Motorola has heard the cries of the masses, and today they've hoped to silence them with the debut of the Moto Shattershield.

Is phone thickness more important than battery life? [POLL]

Is phone thickness more important than battery life? [POLL]

Upon seeing the device HTC One A9 and finding that it has a battery a tiny bit smaller than expected, we got to thinking. At what price do we get a great design for a smartphone? Has it become more important to us to have a device that looks great than to have a device whose battery is large enough to last well through the day? We've not yet tested the HTC One A9 yet, of course, so we don't know how long it'll last on one charge, but the question remains: are we still sacrificing some features in order to attain others?

Moto G (3rd Gen) comes to Republic Wireless to tackle low-end

Republic Wireless is aiming to take on the big guns with the 3rd-generation Moto G, one of the most modest phones on the market.

Republic Wireless are also releasing the Moto G 3rd-gen combined with their refund plans, allowing users to get cash for unused cellular data.
