As indicated in its official blog, iFixit has decided to formally lower the pricing of its iPhone battery replacement kits to just $29, effectively matching the $29 price being charged by Apple in order to replace batteries of old iPhone units that Apple has slowed down. For those still not in the know, earlier this week Apple had issued an official apology for slowing down the processing speed of some old iPhone models in order to prevent them from randomly shutting down whenever the battery is not charged enough or when used in cold climates.
Back in February earlier this year during the annual Mobile World Congress held in the beautiful city of Barcelona in Spain, Motorola had hinted that it had been busy experimenting with the idea of integrating Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant to its Moto smartphone devices, of course by way of a Moto Mod. Fast forwarding about eight months later and the phone maker is launching the new Moto Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa for the Moto Z.
As far as budget friendly smartphone options are concerned, the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus that Motorola had released last year were considered by many as one of the most impressive. This is one of the reasons why there is some excitement brewing for this year’s two upgraded versions -- the Moto G5S and the Moto G5S Plus.
Google has very recently revealed that the Android One powered edition of Motorola’s newest smartphone, the Moto X4, is now made available for preordering from the official website of its Project Fi wireless service. For those not familiar with Android One, it is essentially a super basic version of the world’s most widely used mobile operating system, which means it does not come with the usual bloatware added not only by phone makers but also by mobile operators.
There has been a fair amount of speculation with regards to the upcoming Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus devices for some time now, but now definite details yet. Well, until this week, that is. Motorola has finally decided to publish the official specifications as well as the release dates for the special edition handsets.
Just this week, mobile virtual network operator Republic Wireless has decided to unveil a new promotional deal, and one that is aimed for students -- or more accurately, for parents who are looking to purchase a mobile device for their kids just in time for the start of the new school year. Basically, this latest special offer from the MVNO runs for an entire week (until August 6th), and features Motorola's Moto E4, free mobile service, and some other bundled items, for a very good price.
After some teasing from Motorola about a couple of weeks ago, the phone maker has finally and formally unveiled the latest addition to its Moto Z lineup of smartphones -- the Moto Z2 Force. But on top of this new smartphone announcement, an even more intriguing piece of news is the fact that the company appears to be expanding its strategy in selling its newest handset offering.
LG is not the only phone maker doing some teasing recently. About a week ago, Motorola had also started sending out invites for an upcoming event scheduled on July 25th in New York City. Well, the phone maker has released a new invite, this time showing shards of broken glass and text that reads: “Get ready to shatter your expectations.”
Could Motorola be planning to formally introduce its Moto Z2 Force less than a couple of weeks from now?
