Sounds interesting. I think Google Now works very nicely on my Moto X (the old kind), but I'd certainly be interested in checking out how well Microsoft's Cortana voice recognition works on an Android device.
Microsoft is rolling out a red carpet for iOS and Android users, giving them a standalone version of Cortana and some help syncing their data to Windows PCs.

Sometimes I start what I think is going to be a short, quick blog and end up with a full review. That's what happened with these Android apps that help track expenses; I ended up really trying them all out, and found that there were a lot more differences than I exptended.
If you do any business travel, you know how important -- and annoying -- it is to track your spending. One of these 7 Android apps can help.

Had a chance to look at the new LG G4, and while I haven't had a chance to really try it out (especially the camera), there are aspects of it that are intriguing.
The LG G4 Android smartphone has a number of upgrades, but the company is emphasizing both its high-end camera technology and the elegance of a leather case. Is this enough to push LG ahead of competitors such as Samsung?

If you're looking for a decent phone at a good price, this Android phone from Alcatel, the OneTouch Idol 3, could be ideal.
With its biometric eye-scanning and reversible body, Alcatel's OneTouch Idol 3 is definitely not your typical budget-level device.

I'd be so tempted to draw faces on those LED lights....
 
The +ASUS Zenfone 2 Android smartphone unveiled in NYC Monday has a 13MP camera that, with the aid of software, can capture 52MP images. An F2.0 lens plus special low-light and background modes make it easy to capture decent photos in poor light.
The optional (and cute)@asushq Lolliflash LED light pops into the headset jack. At $299 for a unit with 4GB RAM, an Intel processor and 64GB of storage ($199 with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage), the unlocked, dual-SIM Zenfone 2 is quite affordable.

+JR Raphael spent a week trying out the camera on the LG G4 to see if it was as high-quality as the company claimed. 
JR Raphael originally shared to Android Reviews:
 
Just how good is the G4's camera? Check out this gigantic real-world analysis and see for yourself.
LG has been making big promises about the camera its new G4 smartphone. We ran it through some tests to see if it delivers.

My first 24 hours with the LG G4 -- the good, the not-so-good, and the big questions ahead.
LG's latest flagship Android phone is turning lots of heads -- and after spending 24 hours with the device, it's easy to see why.
