Thanks to what is considered a retirement gift from Evleaks, we have now managed to ascertain that the Verizon branded Moto X+1 will pack the unpopular Verizon Messages bloatware app. This is no surprise given the carrier’s history with pushing many of its own apps on smartphones over the years. Fortunately, it is said that the app will be removable by the user, so customers will not have to bear with it on their app drawer if they don’t want it there. In the past, we’ve seen that Verizon apps cannot be removed without...

We saw a pretty sweet deal on the 2013 Nexus 7 earlier this week where the tablet was being offered for just $102.99 with a couple of discounts combined. And today, we have another deal on the tablet, which doesn’t offer the same amount of savings as the earlier listing, but offers a great deal nonetheless. The 16GB model of the 2013 Nexus 7 tablet is being sold for $129.99 through woot.com. Unfortunately, the deal is only valid until the end of the day. Given the pricing, it is likely that the device might go out of stock...

Mophie is a well known brand popular for its external batteries and cases. The manufacturer has now announced that it will be launching its popular juice packs meant specifically for the Samsung Galaxy S5. The unit will be available in both white and black colors with a price tag of $99.95. Customers will have to wait until the 8th of September to get their hands on this case though, so it’s only available on pre-order now.

Earlier today, T-Mobile announced a very attractive unlimited data offer to customers switching over from either of the top 3 networks. And now, merely hours later, Sprint has announced a new fully unlimited plan which is a good $20 cheaper than what T-Mobile has to offer. According to this new plan, new Sprint customers can get unlimited data at a monthly cost of $60 while T-Mobile charges $80 for the same privilege. As Sprint mentions in its comparison chart, the likes of AT&T and Verizon don’t have an unlimited option,...

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is all set for an announcement on the 3rd of September as we all know. And as is customary with a device of this nature, we’re coming across a multitude of leaks related to the hardware as well as software packing on the device. This new revelation sheds light on the camera software of the phablet, showing some exciting new features as well as some gimmicky ones. Perhaps the most notable addition to the camera software is “Side Touch” which essentially lets users tap the side of the device...

Bitdefender has just joined that list with its dedicated Android Wear app which lets users control and sound alarms on their primary smartphone in times of an emergency. As a precautionary measure, the smartwatch will start vibrating whenever the paired device is taken away from its proximity. We’re guessing this feature can be turned off from the settings, but it’s a good feature to have nonetheless. The app also supports...
