Editorial – Ice Cream Sandwich, Bloatware, AOSP, and Everything in Between

by: Brandon SobottaDecember 21, 2011

 A lot of terms today are thrown around in the Android community that to some, may be a little confusing. I have decided to write a post that may help clear up some of the confusion for the newcomers to the world that we have come to know as Android. The first part (that I will not covering today) is the hardware our phones are built with; the processor, screen, battery, and etc. The other is the software that is on the phone, generally referred to as the firmware. Today, I am going to go over some of the terms in reference to the software known as ROMs, along with the benefits and drawbacks of each ROM. A ROM is an after-market replacement for the firmware that comes installed on [...]

ICQ App for Android Review

by: Brandon SobottaNovember 25, 2011

The ICQ app strives to merge many of your social networking features, and text messaging into one package.  It seems like a tough goal to meet, and can it live up to its efforts? While it does manage to achieve some of its goals, some of the rest may just be out of reach. Let’s take a look at what it succeeds in, and where it fails.


The Good – Consolidation

I really enjoyed this app for what it was, an app to chat with people and follow feeds. I could talk to people from Google+/talk, Facebook, ICQ, and more. I really like the lay out and the functionality of chatting, and how it combined [...]

Is a Droid Bionic Update Right Around the Corner? Could Ice Cream Sandwich Be Next?

by: Brandon SobottaNovember 1, 2011

It seems like Motorola has been hard at work addressing the issues that owners of the Droid Bionic have experiencing. In the last few weeks the members of forums such as XDA, and have been playing around with a non-official update that has escaped Motorola/Verizon’s grasp.  The update known as 5.5.886 seems to have addressed some of the bugs, and problems that we outlined a while back. Some of the issues include loss of data connectivity, poor battery life, sluggish camera, and on and on. So far most Bionic owners have noticed such benefits from the update such as better battery life, quicker camera, and better 3g and 4g connections.

Liberty3 ROM Now Available for Droid 3.

by: Brandon SobottaOctober 28, 2011

For people of you who are fans of the hardware of Motorola phones, but not such big fans of Motorola’s skinned UI known as Motoblur, we have good news. Yesterday, Kejar31 and Jurmmy16 released the popular Liberty3 ROM for the Droid 3. This ROM gives the user a more ‘vanilla’ Android experience, something many enthusiasts prefer over such skinned interfaces such as Touchwiz, Sense, and the previously mentioned Motoblur. The ROM is by no means in perfect working order, but its amazing how well Liberty3 is running thus far. Some of the bugs popping up for some users have included the front facing camera force closing, the right side of the app drawer acting up in some [...]

by: AlexanderOctober 17, 2011

Yesterday, I wrote about the countdown on Motorola’s website for their event that is scheduled for tomorrow. We think they will be announcing the DROID RAZR. Well today, a teaser was placed on the site with one piece out of the sixteen of the completed image, but the folks at Droid-Life have gotten a hold of the completed masterpiece as you can see above. It fits right in with the images of the DROID RAZR/Spyder/DROID HD we’ve seen in the past. If you take a look at the picture you’ll see its sporting a cool new Droid eye too, which looks awesome to me.

As the rumored specs go, we’ve heard that it should be [...]

Motorola Droid RAZR: It’s Not What You Think – qHD Super AMOLED Display, LTE, Dual-Core Processor & Kevlar Body

by: Matthew SabatiniOctober 1, 2011

Do you remember this bad boy? In late 2004, Motorola dropped this clamshell, flip-phone, into the phone market. Immediately this device became wildly popular and the Motorola RAZR was quick to become the “best-selling clamshell phone in the world”. Bearing the same popularity in mind, Motorola is preparing to release a smartphone under a similar name.

Rumors suggest that the Motorola Spyder, Droid RAZR, will be “iconic” like it’s predecessor. Motorola has managed to pack a 4.3 inch 960 x 540 pixel Super AMOLED display, 4G LTE, a dual core 1.2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, and an 8 megapixel camera into this sexy body revealed in the leaked [...]
