Unlocked Moto X4 with Motorola software will come to the U.S. this year

This is really good news for Motorola fans.

One of the big questions coming out of Google’s announcement of the Android One Moto X4 coming to Project Fi was what impact this had on the release of a “normal” Motorola version in the U.S. Thankfully, Motorola has confirmed to Android Central that there will be a standard, unlocked, Motorola software version of the Moto X4 hitting the U.S. this year.

That means it would no longer be  [Read More…]

Pixel 2 images leak with same prices as last year

Now that the Pixel 2 XL has leaked it’s time for the smaller Pixel 2 to take the spotlight. The HTC-made device is shown off in Kinda Blue, Just Black, and Clearly White.

While Google’s first party devices get new Android releases immediately, the same can’t be said for partner devices. Since these devices comprise the vast majority of Android devices, we run into situations like Nougat only being available on 13% of all Android devices a year after release.

But there may be cause for hope: tucked in the Android  [Read More…]

Google pays Apple billions each year to be on the iPhone

Google pays Apple $ 3 Billion per year to be the default search engine on iOS.

One great thing about being in the Google ecosystem is that the company’s services are on the most popular platforms (sorry, Windows 10 Mobile fans). If I wanted to, I could pick up an iPad tomorrow and have access to my purchased books, music, movies, my keyboard, my saved locations, and browser favorites.
