Either way, be sure to swing by CB for the complete BlackBerry Passport review. It's an interesting read, to say the least.

Accessibility features on the 2014 Moto X and Moto G

1
Moto X and Moto G accessibility options

We continue our look at accessibility options on today's latest phones with the 2014 editions of the Moto X and Moto G.

Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2 hands-on

Big phone with a small experience

Alcatel's newest budget phone, the OneTouch Fierce 2, comes to T-Mobile for $126 dollars, or a mere $5.25 a month. It's got a 5-inch screen, a hefty size and feel (though the construction feels as cheap as it is), and even runs 4.4.2 Kit Kat.

Whatcha doing tonight? Give our app a go!

67

Kick your feet up. Take a load off. Pour a glass of something, preferably cool and refreshing. Or maybe just a tad warm, seeing as how for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere it's the first day of fall.

And then while you're at it, take a minute and give the official Android Central app a try!
