Motorola Moto X and Moto E LTE Receive Android 5.1 with U.S. Cellular

Motorola's concise dealing with Android Lollipop has meant a large number of the company’s portfolio is rocking the newest Android build. Indeed, many of Motorola’s handsets are making their way to Android 5.1, such as the U.S. Cellular versions of the second gen Moto X and the Moto E LTE.

How Big Should a Smart Phone Be?

Smart phones have a come a long way since I started covering them professionally back in 2009 they have a ton of new features, GPS, 41mp cameras, fingerprint sensors, heart-rate monitors, etc...  They have also in increased in size perhaps a little too much even.   When the HTC Titan came out it was well...HUGE at the time.  I remember opening the box to it's massive 4.7 inch screen.  That's right massive!  People made fun of me...

Motorla DROID Turbo Getting Android 5.1 Lollipop Soon

The Motorola DROID Turbo is one of the best smartphones on the market, but it is still stuck back on Android 4.4.4 KitKat, while other flagships have Android Lollipop. That’s surprising for a Motorola device as the company was the first OEM to update its devices to Lollipop back in November and December.

How to Get Mobile Consumers to Upgrade
