LG rolling out Android 5.0 to the G3 starting this week

201

LG has announced that its flagship G3 will start receiving an Android 5.0 Lollipop update this week, beginning with users in Poland. Naturally LG is staying clear of giving exact rollout dates for other regions, saying that "key markets" will get the update in "the near future." Of course that doesn't mean it's coming right away to G3 users around the world, but you have to think that if its ready to go for one model this week it's not far from hitting other devices, too.

In pictures: Our best look yet at Project Ara

Project Ara

A close-up look at how the modular smartphone is coming along

We're still quite a ways a away from modular smartphones — as in a device with interchangeable components — becoming a thing. But that hasn't done a thing to lessen the excitement over Project Ara, which is very much trying to make this sort of customizable smartphone a viable product. Our pal Myriam Joire — tnkgrl — brought us these shots from Friday night's press preview at Engadget Expand in New York City, giving us our best look yet at Project Ara.

The device you see is running an older version of Android, but it should brought up to snuff before any sort of public release. Paul Eremenko, with Google's Advanced Technology Projects and project lead of Project Ara, showed how the modules can be swapped at will — that's called hot-swapping for those of us who swap things hotly — can accept and store power, and how the Endoskeleton's bus knows how to handle all that hot swapping.

Motorola Droid Turbo review

0
Motorola Droid Turbo

Motorola made a phone that challenges its own Moto X on Verizon, and in many ways bests it

Droid. It's the name that arguably kicked off Android's popularity back in 2009 and one we've still yet to completely shake as an inaccurate descriptor of just about every phone running Android. Verizon's marketing machinery is strong, but has thankfully toned back in the last two years to match Motorola's new direction.

Motorola now has an exclusive deal to provide Verizon with a steady stream of "Droid" branded devices for the foreseeable future, and since 2013 it has been bringing its new "less is more" mantra from the Moto X series over to the Droid line. The Motorola Droid Turbo is the 2014 flagship from this Verizon/Motorola tie-up, and the best way to describe it is as a "super" version of the 2014 Moto X.

No spec has gone un-bumped, and no design decision was made without considering how it would exude the "Droid" brand for Verizon. This is a Droid through and through, and one that could easily be considered as the best choice on Verizon today.

Read on for our full review of the Verizon Motorola Droid Turbo.
