Big Screen, Big Battery: Motorola Unveils NEW moto e6 Smartphone

A few months ago, Motorola launched a new release in their Z Series smartphones; a few days ago, they announced the 6th generation of its moto e family. What makes the moto e6 smartphone stand out from other value-tier smartphones? It’s high quality, up-to-date features that you can count on such as a maximum display, long-lasting battery, and a sharp camera.

The new moto e6 was designed with improved essentials in mind. It boasts a 5.5” Max Vision display, more than a day of battery life, and a 13MP camera with premium features. It’s everything you need for all-day fun at a very budget-friendly price. Check out all of the moto e6’s features below:

  • Its Max Vision HD+ display gives you maximum viewing thanks to an 18:9 aspect ratio, so you scroll less and enjoy more. You’ll love the fact that you can see so much and still hold the phone comfortably in one hand.
  • Easily listen to music on your headphones using the dedicated headphone jack. A lightweight, unibody, water-repellent design keeps your phone protected inside and out.
  • Enjoy more than a day of power with a 3000 mAh removable battery. Watch 5 full-length movies back to back, play games nonstop for 8+ hours, or listen to songs offline for 109 hours straight.
  • The moto e6 is 50% faster than the moto e5. It boasts a lag-free, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon performance that runs smoothly, even when multitasking. Need more room for apps? Add up to 256 GB of storage to the moto e6 to move photos, songs, and movies to a dedicated external microSD card slot.
  • A great improvement from last year’s moto e5 is its fast-focusing, sharp 13 MP rear camera. It ensures you won’t miss the moments that move quickly. Thanks to a big 1.12um pixels along with a large f/2.0 aperture, your camera has improved performance in lowlight scenarios. When you have a smaller aperture and bigger pixel, your camera performs better. Get the most out of scenes like fireworks, campfires, starry nights, or outdoor nighttime concerts.
  • For the first time ever, you can add premium touches to your photos with moto e6’s Spot Color and Portrait Mode. Select a single color to keep and turn the rest of the photo black & white for a distinctive look using Spot Color mode. In Portrait Mode, use the front or rear camera to enhance a subject with a beautiful blur effect in the background. You can even use portrait mode with your 5MP selfie camera.
  • The moto e6 has the clean Android Pie software you expect from Motorola, allowing you to avoid bloatware and unwanted apps. Plus, it has more exclusive Moto Experiences than ever before on a moto e including Fast Flashlight; turning the flashlight on with a simple chop-chop motion; and Screenshot Editor, letting you share, write and draw on your screenshots immediately. These new experiences also include Media Controls and One Button Nav, previously only available on higher-tier devices.

SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive M3.0: More Storage Space for Android Phones

As a writer who covers a lot of events, we always end up taking an obscene amount of photos and videos on our phones, especially when it comes to having photo content for social media. As you can image, these photos and videos take up quite a bit of space on our smartphones. Many times to the point of receiving that dreadful “storage almost full” message, which can affect the overall performance of your smartphone. There is an answer to this Android phone storage issue, the SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive m3.0. Thanks to this tiny gadget with micro-USB and USB 3.0 connectors, we don’t have to limit the amount of pictures and video we take. Great things really do come in small packages!

The SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive m3.0 for Android smartphones can instantly free up space or transfer files to and from your phone, so you can take more pictures and videos. Thanks to its micro-USB connector on one end and a USB 3.0 connector on the other, the SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive m3.0 lets you move content easily between your Android devices, whether it’s your Android smartphone or tablet to your laptop or desktop computer. PC or Mac, it doesn’t matter, the Ultra Dual Drive m3.0 seamlessly connects it all. This USB 3.0 connector is high-performance and backward-compatible with USB 2.0 ports. For example, the high-speed USB 3.0 lets you transfer a full-length movie to the drive faster than with a standard USB 2.0 drive(3), up to 150MB/s.

The SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive m3.0 for Android is available in five storage sizes: 16GB ($10.95), 32GB ($13.99), 64GB ($21.99), 128GB ($34.99), and 256GB ($69.99). This mini device also comes with a great companion app. Available from the Google Play store, the SanDisk Memory Zone app lets you view, access, and backup all the files from your phone’s memory in one location. It can also automatically move files from your device to your drive to free up space.

Don’t worry iPhone users, SanDisk has a flash drive for your iPhone and other Apple devices as well called the SanDisk iXpand Flash Drive. Just like the Ultra Dual Drive m3.0 does for Android phones, it does for iPhones, iPads, etc.

Retro Cool | Meet THE BRICK Phone from Binatone

If you haven’t noticed, there’s been quite the resurgence of 80’s and 90’s inspired style hitting the market, not just in fashion and beauty, but in technology as well. One of our favorites of these retro tech products is the  BRICK Phone from Binatone. Although it features the cool nostalgic look of the 90’s, the BRICK is a very modern phone. It can be used either as a bluetooth handset for your smartphone or as a powerful mobile phone when you insert your own SIM card, making the BRICK a 2-in-1 device that makes an amazing emergency phone.

Here’s what we love about this retro phone: unlike today’s smartphones, the BRICK offers 14 hours of talk time and one month standby time (over 700 hours without the need for charging); it is Bluetooth compatible with iOS and Android phones, works with any 2G SIM card, boasts a large speaker and a micro SD slot that allows you to load and play your favorite music from your smartphone, gives you the capability to access your smartphone contacts, includes an FM radio, an LED flashlight, and some very cool retro games, including SNAKE

We recently read about a teen who feel asleep with her phone under her pillow, which of course proceeded to catch on fire. Because the BRICK has a bluetooth range of 33 ft, it can remain near you without overheating, while your smartphone is at a safe distance away from flammable fabric. The 2-in 1 original BRICK mobile with 1 month standby retails for $69.99 and can be purchased online at shop.meetthebrick.com.
