While you may or may not be a fan of General Motors vehicles, the automaker's OnStar roadside assistance service certainly looks like it could be useful at times.

The Moto X (2014) was one of the best phones Motorola ever made ... well, at least until it released the Droid Turbo just a few weeks later. So which one makes the most sense? Read on, as Gizmag goes hands-on to compare the 2nd-gen Moto X and Droid Turbo. Read More
When it was first announced last month, Motorola's Droid Turbo sure looked like one of the most muscular smartphones yet. Since then, Gizmag has had a chance to test one out to see if this beefed up Moto X lives up to expectations. Read More
Lately, smartphones are growing larger, lighter and thinner, making them increasingly frail to the point where we might have to worry about a $1,000 iPhone 6 Plus warping or bending in a back pocket. Amid this strange new status quo, the Kyocera Brigadier is the increasingly rare phone that need not be handled with care. Read More
The U.S. wireless industry: so good for AT&T and Verizon, yet so bad for everyone else. In some respects, it's the world's leading market. Its LTE rollout has been aggressive and expansive, and it gets the hottest devices first. For customers, though, things aren't always so rosy. The two carriers' virtual duopoly keeps prices high and new policies unfair. The sole hope for increased competition may lie with Sprint. For US$20.1 billion, Japan's SoftBank today acquired a 70 percent stake in the carrier. Though the move could be seen as a sign of desperation for the (distant) third-place Sprint, it could also ultimately invigorate competition and swing some of the power back to customers. Read More

HTC and Verizon Wireless have announced a new Beats Audio-integrated Android 2.3.4-based smartphone, the HTC Rezound.

The Motorola RAZR is back, only this time it's a smartphone – and a very slim one, at that. Motorola Mobility and Verizon Wireless unveiled the new 7.1 mm-thick DROID RAZR yesterday, with the promise that it should be in stores early next month. Not only is the device said to be the skinniest smartphone in existence, but it is reportedly also the first to be able to stream video from Netflix at HD resolution. Read More
Motorola has officially unveiled the successor to the DROID 2 with the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) powered DROID 3. Coming in at 0.5-in (13 mm) thick, Motorola is calling its new device the world's thinnest smartphone with a physical full QWERTY keyboard. Motorola's original DROID (a.k.a. Milestone, 2009) and the DROID 2 (2010) were both well-spec'd Android QWERTY sliders when introduced, so we wouldn't expect anything less with the DROID 3. It outshines its predecessor with a larger and higher resolution 4-inch qHD 960 x 540 touchscreen, doubles the internal storage to 16 GB and now includes a front facing camera for video calls.
