Motorola is making the news rounds this evening, with two of its devices leading the night. We are also taking a look at one of the best portable batteries we have ever seen.
New reports state the Moto E has started shipping to early buyers, with some users already getting their orders. The $129 piece of equipment should be a great options for those who want a pretty good phone without breaking the bank.
Specs include a Snapdragon 200 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, Android 4.4 and a 4.3-inch 540x960p display. You can go ahead and buy it straight from Motorola’s website.
Opinion: I loved the Moto G and can’t wait to test out the Moto E, if possible. The device looks very neat for a $130 smartphone, but can it follow the Moto G’s footsteps?
It’s impressive to see Motorola being so quick with their software updates. They have even beaten some Nexus and Google Play Edition devices! The Android 4.4.3 update started rolling out just last week, and today Moto G users are starting to see their very own OTA update.
You get some slight improvements and changes, with the most noticeable addition being Motorola Alert. You should be able to go into the settings app and update your Moto G now! Have at it.
Opinion: I haven’t been able to test my Moto G and try to get this update, but let us know how it works for you! Do you see any other significant changes?
We stumbled across a very interesting battery at Computex 2014. It is seriously the largest portable battery we have ever seen; both in size and capacity. The LUXA2 P-MEGA sports a whopping 41,600 mAh of juice! It can power six devices at once, with half intaking charge at 5V 2A, and the other 3 ports at 5V 1A.
It looks like a very well constructed device, but it is also huge (which is to be expected). It literally looks like it could be some kind of console or set-top box. It also features a very neat ambient light, but we wonder just how much battery that wastes. I guess it doesn’t matter when you have that much juice to throw around!
You can go ahead and buy it at Amazon.com for about $160. A little pricey, but it is definitely a one-of-a-kind.
Opinion: I can’t imagine carrying this around like I usually do with my portable chargers. You can’t exactly pocket this, but it might be great for long road trips or camping trips.
