Motorola Edge+ will get two Android updates as if that was extraordinary

Motorola Edge+ will get two Android updates as if that was extraordinary

On the surface, or at least based on its specs, the Motorola Edge+ definitely qualifies as Motorola's first true premium flagship in a long while. Not only does it have the guts to show for it but it also has the premium price (more on that later). What it doesn't have, among other things, is the same level of commitment that its competitors have with their latest and greatest. The company has suddenly changed its tune and is promising two Android updates for the Motorola Edge+ as if it was going out of its way to generously provide something it should have right from the start.

Verizon and Stadia partnership extended to 5G Home customers

Verizon and Stadia partnership extended to 5G Home customers

For all the promised benefits of game streaming services, it really only makes sense if you have a stable, reliable, and fast Internet connection. That's why Google partnered with some network operators earlier this year to package Stadia together with some ISP plan that would, in theory, be optimized for game streaming. That campaign period may be coming to a close so Verizon is expanding its Stadia perks beyond its Fios service and into its 5G Home Internet subscriptions.

OnePlus 8 unlocked and Verizon models differ in more than just 5G

OnePlus 8 unlocked and Verizon models differ in more than just 5G

Back in the days, OnePlus' product story was so much simpler with one or at most two models to choose from that's consistent in all markets. Now those in the US have a few decisions to make, although Verizon subscribers have not much choice in the matter anyway. That, however, also presents some problems because the differences between the unlocked OnePlus 8 5G and the Verizon-locked OnePlus 8 5G UW go beyond the 5G bands they use. They also need to have different cases.

Verizon made a smartwatch for your grandma

Verizon made a smartwatch for your grandma

Verizon today announced that it's launching a new smartwatch, but unlike most smartwatches we see, this one has a fairly limited target audience. Dubbed the Care Smart Watch, this new wearable is meant primarily for elderly customers. That, of course, means that it's being positioned as a device that can give families peace of mind when it comes to elderly relatives who live alone.

Motorola Edge+ enters flagship fight: 5G, 108-megapixels and a huge battery

Motorola is making its return to the flagship smartphone space, and the Motorola Edge+ pulls no punches. Headed to Verizon as an exclusive in mid-May, the new handset promises 5G, a big battery, near-pure Android 10, and a hefty 108-megapixel camera, all wrapped up with a sleek Edge Display screen. Question is, even then has Motorola done enough to stand out in a segment dominated by Apple and Samsung?

Motorola Edge+ Verizon price and exclusivity will make it a hard sell

Motorola Edge+ Verizon price and exclusivity will make it a hard sell

Motorola hasn't launched a premium flagship since the Motorola Z3 Force in 2017 (the 2018 Motorola Z3 had 2017 specs). It may finally be breaking that cycle tomorrow when it announces the Motorola Edge and Motorola Edge+. Only one of those, however, will be the actual premium device. That might not matter much to most consumers, however, because you'll only be able to buy it from Verizon and at a price you probably will be hard-pressed to accept.

Forget iPhone SE: this alcohol-proof flip phone is the perfect pandemic mobile

Forget iPhone SE: this alcohol-proof flip phone is the perfect pandemic mobile

Your smartphone is probably dirtier than a toilet seat, and while that's an unpleasant thought at the best of times, during the COVID-19 pandemic it's positively life-threatening. While advice on how to clean a phone varies, even IP-rated waterproofing probably isn't going to hold up to things like alcohol disinfectant. That is, unless you're willing to consider Kyocera's newest handset.

Comcast, Verizon, and Plex roll out free offers for those stuck at home

COVID-19 is changing the world in more ways than one. In addition to forcing nations to close borders both outside and inside, it is also forcing people to reorganize their lives around the Internet while confined at home. Unsurprisingly, that has prompted many content distributors to ramp up their offerings to keep their customers from going insane. The latest to follow that trend are giving subscribers and users more free content to consume in the days ahead.

LG V60 ThinQ 5G carrier deals confirmed: Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T

The LG V60 ThinQ 5G has landed on US carriers, and the deals are impressive if you're looking for high-speed connectivity and some dual-screen action. Announced last month, the Android smartphone may be LG's 2020 flagship but it's not really priced that way, and the good news is that on some carriers the second screen attachment comes as standard.
