Motorola has already released a number of Moto G versions. Some have been updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop already.

Other Moto phones soon got the sweet update as well: the Moto X Pure Edition, the Moto G in India, the Moto G with 4G/LTE in Brazil, Moto X, and the latest Moto G 2015 4G.

LG G3 purchase brings free VR headset (limited, US only)

Virtual reality devices still haven't caught on like wildfire for various reasons (too bulky, too expensive) but you can bet that OEMs will continue to sweet talk consumers into trying out their respective devices and the technology itself. LG's marketing is smart enough to know that people will be willing to experience something if it's given for free (well, sort of free) and so now they're offering free VR headsets for those who will purchase their current flagship, the LG G3.

HTC One M8s official: a slightly different One M8 for Europe

Although HTC probably wants most of the world's attention, and money, to be focused on the latest One, it can't simply shake off the legacy that the One M8 has left behind. In fact, while the One M8 itself will fade into history, it is giving the name a lease on new life. This is no One mini 3 but the new One M8s could very well be. We're still not sure what the "s" stands for, but it's definitely not "super". That said, the smartphone could give budget conscious buyers an option that doesn't skimp too much on quality.

LG G Flex2 undergoes extreme endurance test and (mostly) survives

Some tech websites simply love to run (torture) endurance tests on all the latest gadgets not because they have money to burn, but of course to test out the durability of devices for us consumers that can't afford to attempt to destroy smartphones or tablets. Although of course the tests they put on the devices are extreme, it may mimic the real-life situations that these gadgets may undergo once they are in our care. Full Mag this time chose to do endurance tests on the new LG G Flex2.

Samsung announces Galaxy BLADE edge: Chef’s Edition

Samsung lovers still can't get enough of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. The two phones have yet to be released in the market this coming April 10 and by now, I'm pretty sure you know where and when to get them. We've been hearing a lot of great reviews about the latest Galaxy flagship pair and hardcore Android fans are already anticipating for D-Day. But for those who are not impressed by the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, at least not yet, then maybe this new phone will make you salivate. Meet the Samsung Galaxy BLADE edge: Chef’s Edition--the latest and probably the most kick-ass and sharpest device designed by the South Korean giant ever.

Huawei P8 details semi-confirmed as specs and pics come to TENAA

You know what they say about TENAA once you come out in the Chinese certification website, all the details included are almost good as confirmed. This will probably be the case with Huawei's new flagship, the P8 as the official unveiling is just a few days away. But the pictures and specs leaked from the website, more or less confirms what has been bandied about and we can expect that the "final product" will more or less have these features and specifications.
