Android M's Adoptable Storage feature lets you use micro SD card, or USB OTG drive as internal storage on the device.
One of the many new features that Google did not really advertise about Android M at its launch event was Adoptable Storage. This feature lets you use your micro SD card or external USB OTG drive as device’s internal storage, which means you will get more space on your device to install apps and games. …

My phone doesn't like the 12.1 [4-17-15 nightly].  I tried the suggested method here and flashed just 12.1 and Gapps.  Wouldn't boot.  Went into loop.  Then I flashed 11 [allowed it to boot] then 12.1.  Booted in less then 5 minutes....  but... got immediate force closes on phone.android.com among others.  Mobile data will not work.  Basically it's unusable.  So... I went back into TWRP and did a factory reset so it would be a "clean install" and it went into boot loop again.  I liked what I saw... wish I could have played with it a bit... but broken mobile data is a deal breaker.  Till that's fixed I guess I will remain on 4.4.4.

This moto x is the first time I haven't had the need to do a custom ROM. Getting a bit ancy for the lollipop update, but I won't go custom until they declare it won't get any more updates or I know that the special moto features will work.

If your Moto G 2013 stuck in bootloop after updating to Android 5 Lollipop, here are some ways to help you get out of bootloop
If your Moto G 2013 stuck in bootloop after updating to Android 5 Lollipop, here are some ways to help you get out of bootloop and get your phone ready for daily use. A bootloop means your phone stuck indefinitely on the boot animation logo. Normally, firmware update will not cause any issue, but if you have not followed the instruction carefully, you might end up with a non-booting system. In this tutorial, we will show you know how to restore ...

Upcoming OnePlus Two
 
This is the OnePlus 2, and it's looking damned good.
The OnePlus 2 is on its way, and the OnePlus team has started their unapologetic hype train leading up to the big June 27th reveal. Sad news for them, though, as shots of the thing have surfaced ahead of launch.

Moto X (2013) is Undergoing the Lollipop Soak Test
 
About today's Moto X news frenzy :-)

I will try to address the hundreds of questions I'm getting at once here:

1) is it true that the user test phase started for the original Moto X? Well, that was supposed to be a secret, but who am I kidding, this is the internet, and as per the screenshots and articles out already, you know it's true.

2) what Android version is it going to get? 5.0.2

3) what about 5.1? There are no plans for it yet. When any decision is made, I'll let you know.

4) I have opted in to be part of it, but did not get the invitation, why? I don't know why. I know that not all volunteers get picked, but that's managed by another team, I have no clue about what criteria is used.

5) if the message you got indicated that if you need to reset your phone, do it before you get the push: then do it ASAP! Don't forget to backup your stuff. If you reset after you get the OTA push, you won't get the push anymore.

the 6th is not a question to be answered, it's a maxim: contacting me privately won't give you any advantage, especially if I've never seen or talked to you before. I'll simply ignore your message.

Thank you all! Enjoy your weekend!

Cheers!

UPDATE: scratch #5, apparently that's being misinterpreted from the Portuguese message.
