LG G Watch, Moto 360 and other Android Wear watches can connect to the iPhone

Moto X Play review

The most affordable Moto X yet aims to dominate the competitive new mid-range market — but falls short in an important area …

The quick take

Head to head: The Alcatel Idol 3 and the Moto G 2015

It’s time to pit two smartphones we love against each other. We’ve picked out four categories — things we think every phone (Android or otherwise) needs to get right before we can recommend them — and squared off the Alcatel Idol 3 against the Moto G 2015.

This is a tough one. Both are great phones, and neither one is the wrong choice. But it’s human nature to find the “best” and we’re going to dive in  [Read More…]
