If your social feeds are anything like mine, they're full of folks squeeing with delight over their new BB-8 droid today.

Once upon a time, not all that long ago, Motorola released an excellent flagship phone called the Moto X. Sure, it didn't have the best battery ever and the camera was pretty lousy, but it just oozed charm and didn't leave me wanting for much. Then, just months later, Motorola (with a perhaps litt...

Verizon's Droid Turbo is a curious little beast: It's a distinct improvement over Motorola's one-time flagship Moto X, but it lacks the sort of geek credentials that have gotten people drooling over the newly announced Nexus 6. That said, we were a little taken with just how seriously Motorola sti...

So far, the pictures we've seen of Motorola's soon-to-launch Droid Turbo have been... incomplete. You won't have to wonder exactly what this Verizon-only smartphone looks like any longer, though. Evan Blass (@evleaks) has posted a press image (available through Verizon's web code) which provides a...

We caught a brief glimpse of the Droid Turbo late last month, but really: that handful of leaked images didn't do much to whet our whistles. This time though, something a little more substantive has started making the rounds -- the folks over at MotoFirmware obtained the phone's full Verizon user...

Don't fret, Verizon fans: Motorola's long-running line of Droid devices hasn't petered out just yet. It's hard to miss the swirling rumors of an impending Big Red Moto X launch, but a new image obtained by HelloMotoHK lends a little credence to rumors of another Moto handset barreling down the ol'...

Would Twitter, Instagram or Vine be any fun if you couldn't participate in the social experience? No, probably not. This is the problem that Motorola's Droid Zap had: it was a unique, localized photo-sharing service that left non-Droid owners out to dry. Users of any Android phone could call up th...
