Yep, it's the new BlackBerry Passport. It's big, it's square, and we'll just have to wait and see if it matters a damn in the scheme of things. Or has business already moved on to Android and iOS?

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. Motorola's phones, as we've been saying for the last year or so, mostly stick with the "stock" builds of Android, only adding some select features here and there. And the Moto X is going to have more of those than the more bare-bones Moto G.

Alcatel OneTouch Fierce 2 hands-on

5
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. But can this phone compete with the new 5-inch Moto G, which is only 50 bucks more?
