The 2014 Moto X may be beginning to age and is likely to be replaced soon, but it’s still a great phone. And now, you can get it in Red Leather. Like some other options, the Red Leather adds an additional $25 to the cost of the phone. There aren’t any photos of the device being held yet, so we really don’t know what the color looks like. But once a photo is released, we’ll update this post. If you’re interested in this color, head over to Moto Maker to purchase it. Source: Moto Maker via Droid Life ...

Amazon now has a very sweet deal on the Champagne Gold version of the Moto 360 smartwatch with a metal band. This model will set you back by $330 when bought directly from Motorola, but this deal is giving away the wearable for just $277.52, which is a discount of nearly $53 on the wearable. This comes from Amazon, which is usually not the place to go when you’re looking to buy the Moto 360, but that’s not much of a concern when the device is being offered at this price. This variant has a relatively slim 18mm band, which...

The President and COO of Motorola Mobility, Rick Osterloh, has mentioned that the 2015 Moto X will break cover in the Fall, which is basically in September. This makes sense given that the first and second gen models were launched in August 2013 and September 2014 respectively. He didn’t give out the specifics of the launch but merely mentioned that the company will follow an annual cycle for its smartphones, which essentially means that hardware will be refreshed every year. This goes well with what we’ve seen in the past...

Qualcomm’s integrated Quick Charge feature on its mobile SoCs allows for devices to be charged quicker than usual. The company uses the updated Quick Charge 2.0 standard on the Motorola Nexus 6 and all Snapdragon 805 running chipsets. And to demonstrate exactly how quickly this can charge your phone, the company has posted a new video which shows what the technology can do. A total of three Nexus 6 units are used for this demonstration, with one using a 5 volts/1 amp charger while the other uses a 5 volts/2 amps charger. The third...

The 2014 Moto X is expected to be getting the Android 5.1 update through a soak test.

Well that changes today, as Motorola has officially submitted the full changelog for the Android 5.1 update which will be sent out to its devices over the coming weeks. The change log mentions the usual suite of changes that we saw on Android 5.1, such as Device Protection as well as some changes to the Quick...

We reported about the 2014 Moto X getting the Android 5.1 soak test update earlier today. It seems like Motorola has added more features than initially thought. A new revelation tells us that the update carries a new gesture feature to turn on the flashlight on the phone. This is a simple chop gesture and once turned on from the settings, all you need to do is perform the gesture (shown above) and the flashlight turns on. To turn it off, the user has to repeat the same gesture. The feature has been added to Moto Actions, so it is possible...

Nexus 6 users on AT&T will now start seeing the Android 5.1 update, a report says. The build number changes to LMY47D, which is the same as other Android 5.1 builds (except for the Verizon Nexus 6 LMY47E). The update will finally bring all the changes that were initially discussed in multiple posts, including the ability to adjust system volume while controlling the media volume and some nifty Quick Settings shortcuts to save time. However, Android 5.1 has reportedly not fixed the memory leak which was said to be plaguing Android...
