Along with its recently announced Desire EYE, HTC is beginning to release the EYE Experience to One M8 owners in the United States. As promised, the update has come swiftly after the announcement, now making its way to Verizon and T-Mobile users.

Not only will the update bring Android 4.4.4 KitKat, users will also see all of the EYE Experience camera enhancements. For those of you new to the EYE Experience, some of the additions include screen sharing, Split Capture, Voice Selfie, Crop-Me-In mode, along with improved face tracking with more people in the room. Be sure to check out our original announcement post for more in-depth details on what to expect.

Though the update may be live, it could take a few days to get to your device. Have you received the EYE Experience update to your One M8? How are you liking the new camera features?

DROID Turbo Photos Hit the Web, Again Confirms QHD Display and 3GB of RAM

Posted by Tim-o-tato October - 22 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

Pictures of the DROID Turbo are hitting the web, ahead of its unveiling by Motorola and Verizon next week. Thanks to many leaks, we already know everything we need to know about the Turbo, including the fact that it will sport a 5.2″ QHD display, Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB of RAM, 21MP rear-facing camera, and a 3,900mAh battery. 

Up to this point, we have only seen the device through renders and poorly taken shots of its casing, but now we can finally see the device in its full state, complete with frontside and backside shots. We even get a look at its QHD display turned on.

The Droid Does countdown currently sits at 5 days and 20 hours. If the Turbo is the phone you have been waiting for, you are so very close to its unveiling.

HTC One (M8) for Verizon now receiving software update with Eye Experience, Android 4.4.4

Posted by wicked October - 22 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off


A software update has arrived for Verizon customers with the HTC One (M8). It brings the Eye Experience software introduced a few weeks ago as well as Android 4.4.4 in a file totaling just over 210MB. The carrier estimates that the update will take six minutes and that is about what I experienced. The device cycles through some restarts with installations once the download is complete and then the device is ready to go. Of course, Android 4.4.4 is primarily unnoticed changes; however, the Eye Experience gives new features to the Camera app.

Update: HTC threw an extra application into this software update. The HTC One (M8) now has a pre-installed flashlight app.

HTC One (M8) Owners on Verizon, EYE Software OTA Update Should Arrive Tomorrow

Posted by Tim-o-tato October - 21 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

According to Mo Versi, HTC’s VP of Product Management, the company has received technical approval from Verizon for an update that is set to hit One (M8) devices tomorrow. The update includes EYE software which was detailed at the launch of the Desire EYE

To be specific, users should see new settings while in the camera application, including one which will allow you to shoot pictures simultaneously out of the front and rear facing cameras. Other features include face tracking for up to four people at the same time, improved selfie capturing, as well as a Crop-Me-In option. Exact details on what to expect can be found in our writeup here.

This same update hit owners of the T-Mobile One (M8) late last night, so it is nice to see Verizon not lagging too far behind in the updates department.

The EYE software should hit most of HTC’s top tier devices in the next couple of months.

One (M8) owners, be on the lookout tomorrow afternoon.

Another Picture of the DROID TURBO Surfaces

Posted by Kellex October - 20 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

We already told you everything there is to know about the DROID TURBO outside of its price. But, because you are all ridiculously excited about this phone (can’t say I blame you either), how about another picture of it? Thanks to the supposedly-still-retired @evleaks, we have a multi-angle press render that shows the phone in both black and red, the two colors that will be available at launch. 

It looks, well, like a DROID. You can clearly see the KEVLAR-inpsired back covering, centered camera with dual-flash,  side buttons for power and volume, and that really oddly warped bottom of the back plate. We also get another look at the front, with centered camera and capacitive navigation buttons. Yep, it’s a DROID.

If you were looking for a DROID that can redeem the brand after years of mostly disappointments, the DROID TURBO probably is the DROID you have been looking for.

The TURBO will be officially unveiled on October 28.

Verizon site CSS spills the beans on Motorola’s Droid Turbo

Posted by wicked October - 20 - 2014 - Monday Comments Off

Verizon and Motorola’s chief secret keepers are probably pulling their hair out right now, wondering how is it that they would be able to keep secrets in the Internet age. I bet they’re also wondering what sort of people have the time to check out a website’s live CSS to smoke out an upcoming product. Our answer to them would be this – the sort of people who do exactly this.

A website’s CSS data is not really what you go to first when browsing, and in that sense, it’s not easily accessible. But if you want to see the data – which looks like this – anyone who knows how to access it will be able to, and in this sense, it’s really simple. So cue some people who have lots of time on their hands getting a sniff of the new Motorola Droid Turbo that Verizon will be launching soon.


Honestly speaking, these are some pretty tasty pics. We get a nice look at what the Droid Turbo will finally – and officially – look like. Couple this with the strong spec list that has been leaked for the Turbo and we should get a phone that will definitely hold its own against the flagship models from other manufacturers that were launched this year.

We have to remember that the Droid line of products is a joint venture between Verizon and Motorola, so it makes sense for them to launch a phone that it equally as good as, say the 2014 Moto X, or the Nexus 6 – all from Motorola. The launch date of this new Droid should not be too far away, with an announcement set for October 28.

Motorola Moto X (2014) just $50 on Verizon contract this weekend

Posted by wicked October - 19 - 2014 - Sunday Comments Off

moto x 2014 first impressions (4 of 18)

The Verizon branded brand new Moto X (2014) is on sale this weekend. If you are willing to sign up with Verizon for a two year contract, you can get Motorola‘s latest flagship for half off, just $49.99. This goes for just the Verizon model, the Pure Edition and remaining carrier offerings remain at full price.

Since this is a time limited deal, you best head on over to Moto Maker on the Motorola website right away if you are interested in the new Moto X (2014) for just $49.99 on contract through Verizon.

The new Moto X (2014) is a 5.2-inch device running Android 4.4.4 KitKat, for now, it will get Android 5.0 Lollipop ‘soon.’ Running the Snapdragon 801 processor at 2.5GHz, Adrena 330 and 2GB of RAM, it is no slouch, and the updated 13MP camera is proving a major improvement over the previous generation Moto X.

With the updated size and specs of the Moto X (2014), it should be no surprise that the price took a jump as well. Sadly, many feel that this new price tag of $500 and up, without contract, knocks it out of viable contention when looking for a good contract-free phone. It is a good thing then that this phone is like others hitting the market right now, great devices that should easily last users a couple years. Not that I’m advocating carrier contracts, just that I don’t think a contract is as bad a thing as it used to be.

Whether you buy the new Moto X (2014) on Verizon contract or not, you’ll want to head into the Motorola website to grab your new handset. Sure, you can buy the Moto X elsewhere, but Moto Maker will allow you to make all those cool customizations.

Now that the madness of the new Nexus devices is settling down a bit, which Motorola device would you drop your money on, the Nexus 6 or this new Moto X (2014)?

Yes, Verizon Will Carry the Nexus 6.

Posted by Kellex October - 17 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Shortly after Google and Motorola announced the Nexus 6, AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular, and T-Mobile all confirmed that they would carry the device. T-Mobile even gave us a date of November 12 and a full retail price of $649, which matched Google’s. But what about Verizon? They have remained quiet since Wednesday, leaving many of you with questions.

We reached out to Big Red today to see what we could find out and they confirmed to us that they would be carrying the Nexus 6

They were not able to provide any other details, though, so if you have questions about activating the phone or pricing or software updates, we don’t have those answers at this time.
