Motorola RAZR takes center stage in June 9th event teaser

Motorola RAZR takes center stage in June 9th event teaser

Motorola, and Lenovo, seems to be playing the Throwback Thursday card in teasing its upcoming event where it is expected to reveal a rebranded flagship line. Motorola unequivocally calls to mind the success and ubiquity of its RAZR flip phone, especially among the youngsters of the previous generation (a.k.a. today's professionals). Of course, the video's real motives are open to interpretation and speculation, but suffice it to say, Motorola is trying to drum up hype and expectation that would be equivalent to the prestige that the RAZR enjoyed back then.

BlackBerry Hamburg at GFXBench confirms mid-range Android specs

The bevy of announcements dropped at Google I/O may have many Android fans salivating over the idea of new smartphones and tablets carrying Android N soon. Of course, that's not gonna happen yet, even late this year, as most devices still to come will most likely still carry Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Take for example BlackBerry's Android "Hamburg" handset. Yes, another full Android smartphone coming from the embattled Canadian company. And based on this sighting at GFXBench, it will indeed be a mid-range device as rumored. At least it looks to be a decent one at that.

It's still too early to really be looking forward to the final release of Android N. It hasn't even been named yet (and Google wants you to help it decide on that).

DxOMark puts Moto G Plus at #9 in photography lineup

In previous years, the only time you really get to hear about a smartphone's camera performance was in a review, sponsored or otherwise, days or weeks after the device goes to market. But with mobile photography taking on a more central role in smartphones today, you just can't get those reviews soon enough. That is why some OEMs like Lenovo have taken to DxOMark to provide that much needed "professional" verdict right on Day 1. And luckily for Lenovo and Motorola, the Moto G (or G4) Plus took away a rather glowing review that put it within the top 10 smartphones in DxOMark's list.
