Moto Z Play might get Android 7.1.1 in the unforeseen future

Moto Z Play might get Android 7.1.1 in the unforeseen future

As always, getting Android updates on phones is a bit like a game of roulette. You never really know when the updates will stop. Even new, still supported models aren't safe from suffering an untimely death. Fortunately for owners of the Moto Z Play, that might not yet be the case. At the risk of getting hopes up, a Motorola representative admitted that an Android 7.1.1 update is in the works. The only problem is that there is no timetable yet on when it will actually roll out to users.

Moto C, C Plus renders envision new entry-level phones

Moto C, C Plus renders envision new entry-level phones

OnLeaks is on a roll! Following leaks of the Moto Z2 and the Moto E4 Plus, the leakster is treating us to even more renders. This time these are for the soon to be newest member of Motorola's family. The Moto C and Moto C Plus are expected to be entry-level devices, which is kind of strange because that is what the Moto E line was supposed to be. Apparently, Motorola thinks it can go even lower, considering the Moto E4 will be climbing up the ladder, so to speak.

Galaxy S8 battery is so tough, stabbing it won’t make it explode

Galaxy S8 battery is so tough, stabbing it won’t make it explode

Perhaps the biggest question on everyone's mind upon seeing the Galaxy S8 is whether it will be as explosive as the Galaxy Note 7 before it. Given what's at stake, Samsung spared no expense at making sure it won't. And, apparently, that has paid off to the extreme. A pair of hardcore, smartphone-torturing YouTubers, namely "What's Inside" and JerryRigEverything, has put that promise to the ultimate test by slicing through the Galaxy S8 and its battery. Lo and behold, nothing went "Boom!"

Moto E4 Plus renders leak with details of 5000mAh battery

This appears to be the week for Motorola leaks. Just days after new shots of the Moto Z2 Force turned up, we're getting a better look at the upcoming Moto E4 Plus, including clear shots of the front and back of the non-flagship device. While obviously a thicker smartphone than we're used to seeing these days, it's likely this is due to a huge 5000 mAh battery sitting inside.

Microsoft reveals which Windows Phones will be getting Creators Update

While the new Creators Update officially rolled out to Windows 10 users on the PC earlier this week, Windows Phone holdouts are still waiting.

Even more disappointing is that Windows Phones that don't support the Creators Update will no longer receive future development builds from the Windows Insider Program.

Man goes to China, builds iPhone from parts sold in markets

Smartphones are such a commodity these days that people take for granted the amount of work it takes to make one. Sure, that process has been pretty much automated, but that doesn’t take away the complexity of a smartphone. And what better way to learn about that complexity by building your smartphone. Better yet, your own iPhone! That is exactly what adventurer extraordinaire Scotty Allen of Strange Parts did when he was in China. What he ended up building was a perfectly working refurbished iPhone 6s at half the price of a band new one.

OnePlus 5 is next, OnePlus 4 skipped because unlucky

OnePlus 5 is next, OnePlus 4 skipped because unlucky

Most of the world is probably familiar with 13 being the unlucky number, but for those with Chinese or even East Asian heritage, the unlucky number comes a lot much sooner. Case in point is the OnePlus' next flagship. Based on a certification in China, that will be the OnePlus 5, which will follow last year's OnePlus 3. If you're wondering whatever happened to the OnePlus 4, it didn't get scrapped. It just never existed at all. That's because in China and other East Asian countries, the number 4, not 13, is considered deadly unlucky.

HTC One X10 leaks appear: will it take on OnePlus?

This afternoon a set of images has leaked of the next HTC smartphone - or at least what appears to be HTC's next smartphone. This is the HTC One X10, a device that leaked in a very small way a few months ago. If this phone ever makes it to market, it'll be a disruptor to one key part of the industry: the low-cost, high-end market. Namely: the place that OnePlus seems to be taking a real swig of at the moment.
