Moto 360′s flat tire isn’t nearly as bad as it seems

Posted: 01 Sep 2015 02:13 PM PDT

People have long complained about the Moto 360′s "flat tire" look. For those of you that haven't heard of it, it's the little flat spot at the bottom of the screen keeping it from being perfectly round. The new Moto 360 will also allegedly have the flat tire, and it's got people talking.

However, the flat tire isn't as big of a deal as many people make it out to be. As you can see, the bezel is absolutely tiny on the Moto 360 compared to other smart watches. This applies to many others not on the chart. The display-to-body ratio is a fantastic 71.7 percent for the Moto 360, and that makes it look quite sleek and sexy.

But there's another reason for the flat tire, and that's the ambient light sensor. It's a feature missing from all the other featured watches and many more, and it's a really important one. Auto brightness means it'll never blind you at night and it'll be visible during the day. I don't know about most people, but a smartwatch without a light sensor is incomplete to me.

What do you think about Motorola repeating the flat tire on the second gen Moto 360? What are your thoughts on the ambient light sensor?

HTC teases new device on Weibo, to launch Sept. 6

Posted: 01 Sep 2015 02:02 PM PDT

HTC has teased a new device on Sina Weibo, a Chinese social network/microblogging site. The device, due to launch on September 6, is a mystery. There is no detail in the photo that could tell us what the device is, other than the words" Meng Yao," which mean "superior handsomeness."

The device could the HTC A9, or HTC Aero, that we've seen once before. The similarities to the iPhone are apparent, though the bands across the back of the device were used for years by HTC. This looks similar to a flat HTC M9, with the camera moved up to the top.

We may not be getting this phone, but it should be a pretty decent device. It is rumored to feature a 5.2-inch QHD display, a 10-core MediaTek processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 3500mAh battery. These specs seem pretty amazing, but we'll have to wait to see if the rumors are right.

HERE Maps For Android Update Brings New Contextual Menu

Posted: 01 Sep 2015 01:58 PM PDT

Selection_028

When HERE Maps launched a new beta program back in July, the first major feature was a new contextual menu. Whenever you long-pressed anywhere on a map, four bubbles would pop up that offered information on the location, the option to share, the ability to pull up directions, and the choice to immediately start navigation.

Now that feature has hit the stable version of HERE Maps.

That's the primary new addition, but it's not alone.

Case for unreleased Huawei Nexus leaked

Posted: 01 Sep 2015 01:36 PM PDT

We've gotten quite a bit of information about the next LG Nexus, so it's time for the rumored Huawei Nexus to get some love. Some photos of a case made for the upcoming device have leaked, confirming the device we're expecting.

We've seen the Huawei Nexus in leaks before, and this case confirms the design. The giant hump for the camera looks to be a sure thing, and I'm sure people will be very split about it. But hopefully it means a good camera will be included.

The Huawei Nexus 6 is rumored to have a 5.7-inch QHD display, a Snapdragon 820 processor, and a fingerprint reader, though all that could change anytime. Are you excited to see this device launch? Leave a comment!

You should, because it was exactly one moon ago, back at the beginning of August.

Instagram 7.5 Brings Improvements To Direct Messages, Including The Ability To Share Photos From Your Stream

Posted: 01 Sep 2015 10:45 AM PDT

2015-09-01_12h33_10

Instagram Direct has been the only way to privately share images and have conversations on the Facebook-owned picture-based social network for a couple of years now. The thing is, every time you want to share a new image privately, you have to start a new thread - even if you want to share something with another user you're already actively having a conversation with.

Today's update brings about a pretty big shift in the way Direct works, as it will be much more dynamic moving forward.

Pre-orders for the Moto X Pure Edition kick off in the U.S. on September 2

Posted: 01 Sep 2015 10:34 AM PDT

In August, Motorola said that the Moto X Pure Edition would be available beginning September 3, but then quickly removed any mention of that. Turns out that Motorola was apparently only kind of teasing potential Moto X Pure Edition owners.

Motorola just tweeted out earlier today that the Mot X Pure Edition will begin pre-orders on Wednesday, September 2. Unfortunately, Motorola wasn't kind enough to give an exact launch date just yet, but it's been suggested by P3Droid — who has a longstanding track record with providing information regarding Motorola — that the Moto X Pure Edition will start shipping the week of September 13.

Hopefully Motorola doesn't change its mind on pricing for the Moto X Pure Edition, which is said to start at $399. There will be customization options through Moto Maker as well. It will be sold unlocked, and Motorola says that you'll be able to use it on any of the major four wireless carriers in the United States.

As a quick refresher, the Moto X Pure Edition features a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 2560×1440. There's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor under the hood with 3GB of RAM, and it comes in either 16GB/32GB/64GB variants. There's a 21-megapixel camera on the back, with a 5MP front-facing shooter on the other side. The battery is measured in at 3000mAh.

Do you plan on picking up the Moto X Pure Edition?

What if you just wanted slow mellow songs to chill to? Or fast uptempo music to ease your homework struggle?

Google has a new logo and brand identity

Posted: 01 Sep 2015 09:13 AM PDT

Google, its logo and the icons associated with it have become mainstays of not just the Internet or a browser window on your desktop, but your smartphone, your tablet, your watch and your car. Google wants its logo and brand identity to reflect this. Until now, Google has been introducing new icons and animations that build off its original logo from back in the late 90s. Today, that changes.

Announced on the official Google blog, Google is "introducing a new logo and identity family" to better fit its modern image and widespread use. The colors are still the same — blue, red, yellow and green — but the logo is now a cleaner sans serif font. Gone is the little "g" icon that was used in things like search bars, replaced by a colorful "G". Even the mic logo is changing to feature Google's signature colors, to stand out more and call your attention to elements that are voice-action enabled.

The new logo and icons are already showing up all over online, and will continue to spread in the coming weeks. What do you think of Google's new logo? Let us know in the comments below.

Nextbit introduces the Robin, its unique first Android phone

Posted: 01 Sep 2015 08:52 AM PDT

There are no shortage of mid-range Android phones in the $400 price bracket these days. So manufacturers are starting to look for ways to set themselves apart. Nextbit, a company founded by former Google Android employees, is doing just that with the Robin, a phone that aims to never runs out of internal storage and whose looks will have people turning their heads.

The species of the Robin might look familiar, if not a little better, for a mid-range handset:

  • Processor: Snapdragon 808
  • Memory: 3GB RAM / 32 GB onboard / 100 GB online
  • Screen: 5.2" IPS LCD 1080p
  • Rear Camera: 13MP with phase detection autofocus, dual tone flash
  • Front camera: 5MP
  • Battery: 2680 mAh
  • Dual front facing stereo speakers
  • Fingerprint sensor
  • NFC
  • Quick charging
  • Bluetooth 4.0 LE
  • WiFi A/B/G/N/AC
  • GSM 850/900/1800/1900
  • WCDMA 850/900/1800/1900/2100
  • LTE Bands 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/12/17/20/28

However, with the Robin, specs only tell a part of the story. The big draw to Robin is how it utilizes cloud storage. Robin will learn from your usage what to store in the cloud and what to keep on your phone so that you never run out of physical storage. You can manually manage apps and media, but letting Robin do its thing is when users will get the most out of the phone.

Software-wise, Robin is running Lollipop right now, and should launch with Marshmallow. Design wise, Robin is a looker. Nextbit recruited former HTC designer Scott Croyle, who led the teams behind the M7 and M8. Croyle was able to go nuts with Robin, and the results are stunning. Robin looks like something right out of Google's Material Design playbook. It's brightly colored, angled, and features lots of bold circles that mesh well with the UI of the device. It really doesn't look like anything else available right now.

Robin is launching this January for $399, but the Kickstarter is live where users can get a discount on the device if they buy in early. Early backers can get a Robin for $299, while standard backers can get one for $349. Act fast though, because they are selling out quickly.

The Moto 360 (2nd Gen.) set to be unveiled on September 8

Posted: 01 Sep 2015 08:14 AM PDT

The second-generation Moto 360 from Motorola wasn't the best-kept secret to date, but it also wasn't the worst, either. We'd seen it out in the wild already, and Motorola even managed to leak a render of the wearable even before they officially announced it. But, an announcement is right around the corner.

Lenovo, which is now the parent company of Motorola, has posted a teaser image that very clearly indicates the newest Moto 360 on its front, and with a date below that: September 8, 2015. The image was published to the official page for Lenovo on Sina Weibo, and includes the tagline: "It's time."

There's only one new Moto 360 displayed in the teaser image, but there are rumors that Motorola has plans to introduce at least two Moto 360 variants, each of which with different screen sizes. On top of that, a recent leak showcased the Moto 360 Sport, a wearable with a rubberized band that could launch later this year.

Amazon Instant Video adds offline playback to its Android app for Prime members

Posted: 01 Sep 2015 07:35 AM PDT

Amazon knows how to sell a product, especially when it comes to their own, and a Prime subscription is certainly no different. Prime subscribers already have tons of extra goodies they can look forward to versus the regular shopper that peruses Amazon's digital store shelves, like free two-day shipping and a plethora of movies and TV shows to choose from with Instant Video.

Now Amazon is adding yet another feature to sweeten the Prime subscriber deal. Amazon officially announced on September 1st that Android users (and iOS users) that are Prime subscribers can now save Instant Video content to their device for offline viewing. Right now, this ability is only available in a few locations, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Austria. Thankfully, for those that have access to this feature, it offers offline playback for both movies and TV shows.

Android users will have to do a bit of work to get the Amazon Instant Video app, as Amazon still blocks it away within its own Appstore app. To download the Appstore you'll need to sideload it, because it's not available in the Play Store. Once that's done, then you'll be able to download the Instant Video app from there. (If you have an Amazon Fire Phone or Amazon tablet, you already have both apps readily available.) You can find full instructions on how to download the Amazon Instant Video app for Android right here.

Now that the Instant Video app has downloads for offline playback, does this make the app the perfect video player for you?
