Verizon to cut off “extraordinary” unlimited data users [UPDATE]

Verizon to cut off “extraordinary” unlimited data users [UPDATE]

It's not exactly surprising that there would be some humans who would abuse an unlimited supply of resources. That's especially true when it comes to unlimited data plans, which has normally been cited as the reason why ISPs are suddenly removing their unlimited data offers. Now Verizon is reported to be preparing for a somewhat drastic move to weed out abusers. By August 31, it will disconnect unlimited data subscribers deemed to have used up an "extraordinary" amount of data. That is, unless they migrate to one of Verizon's newer, and pricier, plans.

Moto Z Force Droid camera is second best, claims DxOMark

Cameras have become a critical aspect of smartphones for the past year or so, to the point that now almost every new flagship is waiting in line for a DxOMark verdict. While definitely not the only game in town, the name has become synonymous with digital camera benchmarks. Which is why Lenovo, Moto, and Verizon should count themselves fortunate that the site has just given the Moto Z Force Droid the second highest score so far, second only to the HTC 10 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and surpassing any of Apple's iPhones.

Verizon 2G CDMA 1X network shutdown set for late 2019

Verizon 2G CDMA 1X network shutdown set for late 2019

Verizon will be shutting down its 2G CDMA 1X network by the last day of 2019, assuming it can get all of its subscribers who are using it switched over to LTE. The company says it will be working with subscribers who are using devices on the 2G network, and that it will delay the shutdown into 2020 if more time is needed to get everyone switched over. In its present form, some Verizon subscribers depend on this network for their voice calling feature; VoLTE will, in due time, take over that task.

Galaxy Note 7 Verizon variant seen with 4GB RAM only

The arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is truly near, seeing as how all these model variants are popping up left and right, especially on benchmarking websites. That said, we are nowhere near the final word on the specs for Samsung's next phablet. This time, we spot on Geekbench a certain SM-N930V, the usual indicator of a Verizon-bound model. What is curious about it, however, is how it is indicated to have only 4 GB of RAM, again defying earlier leaks and expectations of a 6 GB RAM flagship.

It has almost been a month since Lenovo and Motorola revealed their love child, the Moto Z, but it will still be months before the market actually gets their hand on one.

The Verizon branded Moto Z Droid and the Verizon exclusive Moto Z Force Droid are set to reveal their prices next week, and it is likely that pre-orders will start soon afterwards, if not on the same day.

Future Moto Z users: Beware free storage from Google

Moto Z Droid Edition's free 2-year Original Quality Google Photos storage should come with a more apparent disclaimer.
