Verizon ZenFone V Live goes live, Galaxy Tab E 32 GB in tow

Remember the ASUS ZenFone V? The Verizon-exclusive smartphone launched not too long ago, not even two months ago, and yet now the two companies have come out with yet another exclusive. But if you were expecting the ZenFone V Live to be an upgrade, you’d be thoroughly disappointed. Unless you’re the type that loves to livestream and needs to look perfect in front of the camera.

Verizon previously eliminated full-resolution video streaming from its unlimited plan, a move that upset many subscribers for obvious reasons.

Here we go again: Verizon’s data leak will make you mad

Another day, another security breach: researchers at UpGuard have revealed that Verizon suffered a fairly massive data leak, exposing personal information on millions of customers.

This Moto Z2 Play Moto Mod seemed absurd at first, now it’s my favorite

This Moto Z2 Play Moto Mod seemed absurd at first, now it’s my favorite

The JBL SoundBoost 2 Moto Mod makes the Moto Z2 Play downright thick. I'd laid hands on a few Moto Mods before and I'd even used the Moto Z for a while when it was first revealed. But until now, I'd not been convinced that Motorola's implementation of a modular smartphone accessory system was worth the effort.
