- Moto X Pure Edition, one of our favorite phones of 2015, is getting Nougat
The Moto X Pure Edition was big and curvy and didn’t have a great camera, but we loved it anyway. And now it’s getting an update to Nougat.
Android 7.0 is rolling out to one of our favorite devices of 2015, the Moto X Pure Edition, also known as the Moto X Style in some parts of the world.
Motorola’s parent company Lenovo promised the update way back in October of last year, but has been prioritizing its 2016 lineup that includes the Moto Z, Moto Z Force, Moto Z Play, and Moto G4.
The Moto X Pure Edition was sold directly through Motorola back in 2015, as well as at various carriers in the U.S., but it’s unclear whether the Nougat update is aimed specifically at the unlocked model. Motorola says that the update “improves your mobile experience with new multitasking features, more efficient notification controls and improved data saver and battery features.”
Of course, the rollout will begin slowly, so if you’re still running the Pure Edition it may take a few days to a few weeks …

- Your unlimited plan is probably ripping you off: How much data Americans actually use
The numbers are in and you probably don’t need an expensive unlimited data plan.
Unlimited data plans are back. Here’s some insight into why that happened as well as a look at how much data we really use every month.
We’ve recently seen all four major U.S. carriers introduce or revamp their unlimited LTE data plans. Multiple times. For some of us, this is great news: The folks who use upwards of 10GB of data on a line they pay for themselves found plenty of creative ways to hold on to older unlimited data plans, and sometimes that could be a hassle. Now they are available with a click of the mouse.
Unlimited plans coming back to AT&T and Verizon are a direct result of tough competition in the industry.
This wasn’t unexpected, really. Companies like T-Mobile and StraightTalk made people notice the cost vs. value proposition of a cell phone data plan. AT&T and Verizon enjoyed a consumer mindset that they offered something superior when for many, alternatives could be ju…
