New Moto X now with red leather option in Moto Maker

If your favorite color is red and you're in the market for a new smartphone that you can customize to your heart's content (well, at least more than the others available now), then the 2nd generation Moto X might be the one for you. They're now introducing a red leather option when you "create" your smartphone through their customizable Moto Maker, branding it under their hashtag #ChooseChoice.

Turn on your Moto X flashlight by chopping the air

Admit it, you've always wanted to do something "magical" when you swish your smartphone in the air, like unleash a light saber or maim your enemy with it or something. Well, you still won't get an actual weapon, but if you own a 2014 edition of the Moto X, you can actually do something cool with it. A new feature allows you to open your smartphone's flashlight with just a few martial arts-style gestures.

Moto X 2nd Gen to receive Android 5.1 update soon

Owners of the Motorola flagship Moto X 2nd Gen will probably be among the first non-Nexus devices to receive the first Lollipop update, Android 5.1.

Motorola gives you free Moto E if you buy Moto X Pure Edition

If you're looking to give a lower-end smartphone to a child or a back-up phone for yourself (we won't ask why, don't worry) and get yourself a spanking new device, you might want to pay attention to a new promotion from Motorola. If you buy an off-contract Moto X Pure Edition, you'll get a free 2nd gen edition of the Moto E (the 3G version). That's a pretty good deal if you actually need a new smartphone and the Moto X looks pretty good to you.

Motorola begins testing Lollipop on original Moto X

It’s understandable that owners of the original Moto X – that is, the one of 2013 fame and not the 2014 flagship – feel a little bit abandoned since there is very little news coming from Motorola if Android Lollipop is ever coming to the older Moto X. Of course, Lollipop has already made it to the 2014 version, but it seems like a bit of good news is at hand – a Lollipop soak test is apparently ongoing for the original Moto X.

New phones get CM12 nightlies: the 2014 Moto X, Moto E, Oppo N3

Even as the corporate side of Cyanogen pushes to be profit-making and be picked up by some OEMs as the Android OS of choice for their devices, the ROM-making “CM Team” continues to put out CM12 – their Android Lollipop-flavored AOSP-based version of the CyanogenMod after-market Android software – for more and more devices out there. Today, we announce 3 more to get nightly builds – the new Moto X (2014), the Moto E, and the Oppo N3.

Lollipops rain on some HTC One M7, LG G3, Moto G, Moto X

There's a saying that goes "when it rains, it pours", but this is one rain that mobile users are unlikely to complain about. After some delays and silence on the rollout of Android 5.0, we're now seeing a flood of incoming updates to some smartphones. Sadly, not all models and not all regions are covered by this joyful news. Hopefully, though, it's just the opening salvo that opens the floodgates of Android 5.0 updates everywhere.
