Gizmag's Eric Mack recently took a long, hot and humid road trip through the American south. It was a trip borne of madness and masochism, but the last week was a little bit easier than the first four. That's the week he was wearing LG's Android Wear-powered G Watch on his wrist.  Read More

Both phones come with a sturdy plastic back

In the world of Android flagship phones, there's plenty of competition and even more opinions about which phone(s) are best, but it's undeniable that two of the phones that generated the most hype and attention in 2013 were Samsung's Galaxy S4 and Google's Nexus 5 (another was from Motorola – also read my hands-on comparison of the Moto X and the Nexus 5). The GS4 hit the market in Q2, while the Nexus 5 arrived just about a month ago. There's been a Galaxy S4 in my house since the summer and I borrowed a Nexus 5 from Google for almost a full month, so at this point I've a strong enough handle on the strengths and weaknesses of each to help those of you still trying to decide between one or the other.  Read More

But if you're waiting for the next batch of smartwatches that evolves the product even further, Google's will be one of the big ones to keep an eye on.

But even though the big update that's about to roll out to early adopters may not apply to you, it does give us a better idea of the kinds of things we'll be able to do with the search giant's specs once they're released to the general public.  Read More

The Moto X doesn't sport smoking specs, just a few killer features

Motorola's first phone designed and brought to market since becoming a wholly owned part of Google, the Moto X, is finally here. I've had one in my hands for almost a week now since snagging a loaner to review for Gizmag at Motorola's press event in New York City. It's traveled with me from the Big Apple back to the American Southwest and on a short road trip through Colorado's southern Rockies in that time, and as I've grown more familiar with what it can do across such varied geography, I can comfortably say that although the Moto X might not be a revolution, it is quite an impressive step forward.  Read More
