So earlier this week I wrote a nice editorial about why most of us consumers prefer a little bit thicker device with a much bigger battery then a super thin device with a very little battery. So I guess the best way to put this is, do you want the Droid Razr or the Droid Razr Maxx? Essentially the same device but the Droid Razr is much thinner (well not really) but has about half the battery as the Droid Razr Maxx, which has been proven to last about 21 hours of moderate to heavy usage.
So in tonight’s poll we are asking do you want a really thin Android device? Or would you rather have a device that might be [...]
Wow, Motorola has really been pushing out updates lately. Last night we saw that the Xoom LTE was getting a very minor update, and now it looks as if the Droid Xyboard, Droid Razr, and Droid Razr Maxx are now getting updated. Let’s start off with the Droid Xyboard.
The Droid Xyboard will soon be recieving build 1.6.0M_279 which will include a slightly longer changelog then what we saw on the XOOM LTE.Enhanced Browser performance to improve scrolling improved touch response that includes Stylus enhancements Maintain data connection when switching between Wi-Fi and the Verizon 3G and 4G LTE networks Successfully connect to 4G LTE network and see the 4G LTE [...]
We have seen some pretty thin phones come around lately, haven’t we? From the Motorola Droid RAZR, to the Huawei Ascend P1 at CES, and to the Samsung Galaxy S3, which is rumored to be thinner than the incredibly svelte Droid RAZR. Even thought the Droid RAZR Maxx with that huge battery on its back, but let’s face the fact that the batteries in these thin phones are pretty bad, usually around 1500mAh to 1900mAh which tend to not last very long. So – why can’t manufacturers get it that we want more capacity in our batteries more than a thinner phone? Wouldn’t you love to have a phone that can last you almost 2 days with 4G LTE on the entire time? I [...]
There is what about 200+ Android devices on the market right now? But which one are you using? Perhaps the Samsung Galaxy S2 Epic 4G Touch on Sprint, or maybe the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon or the GSM version, could it be the HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile, or the Motorola Atrix 2 on AT&T’s LTE network, or some other device?
Personally I am running the Motorola Droid Bionic on Android 2.3.4, which is rooted stock on Verizon’s blazing fast 4G LTE network. You can add as much of that information into the comments below, we love seeing our readers get involved in our posts. Feel free to add all your devices or just your daily driver, it’s all up to you. Just [...]
It’s not a fully functional toggle to allow you to go back and forth from 4G to 3G without leaving your home screen, it acts as a shortcut and is a little bit faster then going into Settings > Wireless & Networks > Mobile Networks and change to CDMA only for 3G or CMDA/LTE for 4G.
This toggle has been tested to work on the Droid Razr Maxx and the Droid Bionic ( I haven’t tried it on any other devices), and of course it works on the Droid Razr since it was made for the original Droid Razr. It’s free from the market, and currently the only option for those of us with Motorola devices, and at just 29kb in size it’s worth it to save a few steps [...]
