Motorola announced an upgraded version of touchless controls known as the Moto Voice along with the new Moto X. At the time, the feature was only limited to the handset, but Motorola has changed that now by bringing support for older devices such as the first gen Moto X as well as the Verizon Droid Ultra, Droid Mini and the Droid Maxx from last year.

AT&T is offering the Black Resin, Bamboo and Black Leather variants of the new Moto X at either $99 for a 2-year contract or $526 off-contract. All pre-orders...

The GFX Bench listing suggests that the device has a screen size of 31.9 inches and 23.7 inches, but with no touchscreen, so it’s likely that this is merely a set top box like unit like the Amazon Fire TV. Other specs...

The Galaxy Tab Pro is Samsung’s premier flagship tablet which was announced back in February, much before the Galaxy Tab S surfaced. The tablet packs a 2560 x 1600 resolution display,...

After showing off the LG G3 Beat and the LG G3 Stylus as alternatives to the company’s large sized flagship, the Korean manufacturer has now teamed up with Sprint to announce the LG G3 Vigor. This is essentially a rebranded version of the LG G3 Beat, so the hardware is almost identical.
