Storage space isn't quite as much of a problem nowadays compared to before. Phones and tablets are being pushed out the door with some comfortable internal memory specs such as up to 64 GB.

Turn Your HTC One into a Google Play Edition

Just yesterday, we covered how Google had finally decided to update the HTC One Google Play edition to Android 4.4 KitKat.

Regardless of timing, the update is a good thing---even if the Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T variants...

Microsoft Doesn’t Want Three Windows OS Versions

Which company has not one, not two, but three operating systems being actively developed at the same time? Microsoft does, and they're getting tired of it.

Jcase Roots the Moto RAZR i WITHOUT Bootloader Unlock!

For the most part, there aren't too many Intel-powered Android smartphones on the market. There's nothing inherently wrong with them, although things are a bit tricky for older NDK-produced apps that haven't been cross-compiled. However, there is one relatively popular model that featured Intel's Atom Z2460 chip, and that's the Motorola RAZR i. Recently, we talked...

Easily Set up Your Moto X with the Moto X Toolkit

Getting a new phone can be likened to a ritual in many ways.
