ASUS ZenPad Z8s tablet available now from Verizon

Verizon has added two Android phones to its portfolio this week, the ASUS ZenFone AR and Moto E4 Plus, or three if you include the Moto Z2 Force. It hasn’t, however, forgotten the class of users who might not need a new phone but do have a need for something with a larger screen. Yes, we’re talking about tablets.

Motorola and Verizon are definitely on a roll.

T-Mobile dominates OpenSignal’s mobile tests, but Verizon remains strong

OpenSignal recently published its August 2017 'State of Mobile Networks USA' report, and in it we see the results of its evaluation of the biggest carriers in the nation. While Verizon has a solid history of getting top marks in these sort of tests, T-Mobile has slipped ahead of it this time, managing to take the top slot in every category including latency and 4G performance.

Verizon Up replaces Smart Rewards and makes things simpler

Verizon Up replaces Smart Rewards and makes things simpler

Verizon ended its Smart Rewards points program today and immediately replaced it with an alternative system called Verizon Up. Nothing remains the same, with the exception of earning rewards. Whereas before you earned points based on a roster of things like paying your bill, Verizon Up dishes out one reward for one point, and one point for every $300 you give the carrier (regardless of whether it was a bill payment or something else).

Comcast Verizon merger would truly be the darkest timeline

Comcast Verizon merger would truly be the darkest timeline

These days, you hear a lot of jokes on the internet about the citizens of the world (or at least the US) heading down the "darkest timeline." It's easy to believe it, too, with important things like healthcare and net neutrality potentially at risk through new legislation. Now, Citibank analyst Jason Bazinet has penned an opinion that Comcast should purchase Verizon, and if we aren't in the darkest timeline right now, we certainly will be if such a deal ever becomes a reality.

Verizon throttling confession raises net-neutrality questions

Verizon throttling confession raises net-neutrality questions

It's been an interesting 48 hours for Verizon customers. Two days ago, some users discovered that Verizon may have been throttling their connections to video services like Netflix and YouTube. What's particularly strange is that under normal circumstances, average users wouldn't even realize they were being throttled.

5 Reasons it’s good to be a Motorola smartphone user again

5 Reasons it’s good to be a Motorola smartphone user again

As we approach the release of a couple more Motorola-made smartphones on the 25th, it's become a good time to be a fan of the mobile MOTO brand again. The staple brand name in mobile electronics had a few years of ups and downs - switching parent companies twice over - but they've come home once more. Owned by Lenovo and moving forward with a unique and powerful phone lineup, Motorola's once again hit their smartphone stride.

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

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. In this case, it wasn't Verizon itself that is responsible for the leak, but rather a third-party company partnered with Verizon. This breach also has a few things in common with the RNC leak that we learned about late last month.

T-Mobile’s One Plus unlimited plan hikes to Verizon prices [UPDATE]

T-Mobile’s One Plus unlimited plan hikes to Verizon prices [UPDATE]

Back when the big four carriers first announced their new unlimited plans, T-Mobile initially put itself in a good position to compete on price with the likes of Verizon and AT&T. Today, however, T-Mobile's unlimited plan is looking quite similar to what Verizon offers, not only from a features standpoint, but also from a pricing one. That's thanks to a small price hike T-Mobile has made to its One Plus add-on.

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. With the release of the second wave of Moto Mods with the Moto Z2 and the Moto Z2 Play, I've seen the light. And it comes from the speaker masters at JBL.
