We had some time with the OnePlus 2. I'm legitimately excited to use this phone more.
 
OnePlus has finally pulled the covers off of its next phone. And despite all of the leaks and teases there are plenty of new and interesting things to explore. It has been 460 days since OnePlus last announced a smartphone — its only smartphone, actually. And as co-founder Carl Pei is quick to tell…

yeah. NFC tho, is one of those things. My phone and my wife's phone has it and we use it for photo sharing all the time. my daughter's doesn't have it and ugh that sucks.

either Qi or QickCharge have become important since I ride the bus 3+ hours a day.          ok, maybe the problem is the 3 hours on the bus and not the battery. :/

There we go — my full Chromebook Flip review.
This isn't the Chromebook for everyone, but it offers enough to be a compelling option for those who need ultimate portability. The quick take The Chromebook Flip is pushing the envelope of what we consider a "standard" Chromebook, with extreme portability, good components and the option to convert into a pseudo-tablet. At 10.1 inches and less than two pounds it's easily the smallest...

ASUS Chromebook Flip review finishing up. Expect it Friday, or maybe tomorrow if I'm feelin' it.

In general I like what the Flip has on offer for < $299. But I'm not super excited about the tablet/stand/tent modes, and the compromise. The Flip has actually made me personally more interested in the ASUS C201, which is 11.6", same build/internals, and no touch for $199.

Being able to pause your Project Fi service for up to 3 months and be refunded for your unused days is pretty awesome. Having it turn off your Project Fi number (and therefore the use of that number on any other device) is a tad annoying. Really wish it'd just turn your Fi number back into a dumb forwarding number when you paused service.
Project Fi does a few innovative things that set it apart subtly from other carrier offerings, and one of the lesser-advertised features is the ability to "pause" service on a whim without any hoops to jump through. Pausing service isn't something offered by other carriers, and lets you simply disable your phone for as long as you want and instantly resume service with the press of a...

+Jordan VanCampen there's a separate software track for Fi that has the extra software bits to do all of the network switching. It comes pre-loaded on the nexus 6 if you buy one from Google. Or if you bring your own it'll handle updating your phone once you get a Fi SIM in it.

Someone in our forums got their hands on a OnePlus 2, apparently. We'll know more tonight with the official unveiling.
We're mere hours away from the big OnePlus 2 reveal, however the next flagship phone from the upstart manufacturer has already been unveiled in its entirety by a poster over on the Android Central forums. Poster chinaleakking has outed the OnePlus 2 in what appears to be a series of leaked promotional images of the phone. They show a handset with a metal frame, the promised...

I went back to using the Moto X 2014 after its 5.1 update, and I'm super impressed how Moto turned things around after a dismal time using it on 5.0.
As its successor nears, the Moto X 2014 has a new lease on life with the Android 5.1 update Though we all cheered when Motorola swiftly updated the Moto X 2014 to Lollipop soon after Android 5.0's release, it was immediately clear that the jump from KitKat introduced some issues. Choppy performance, a few quirky bugs and a generally unstable vibe came with the update, leaving owners...

This will help clear up the confusion around the whole thing. Just get Photos out of Google+ entirely.
Now that Google Photos has been live for a couple of months, it looks like it's time to shutter Google+ Photos. Google announced today that on August 1, the photo section that was integrated into the Google+ app will be shut down in favor of the separate Google Photos app. From Google: In an effort to ensure everyone has the best photos experience we can deliver, on August 1st we'...
