Motorola makes it easier to check the upgrade status of your Android device


Friday 22nd of February 2013 / phandroid.com
If you’re a Motorola device owner and you’re ever curious about whether or not your device will get the latest version of Android, you have never really had to pull teeth in order to get that information. Motorola has long had a place for users to go to check the update status of their device, but it has never been the most easy site to navigate.Thankfully, that changes today. Motorola has upgraded its Android software upgrade site with a straightforward sorting system. Select your country, then your carrier, and then your phone. After that, Motorola spits out information about whichever device you’re looking for.Taking it for a quick spin, I’ve learned that the original DROID RAZR is still slated to receive Jelly Bean 4.1 in the first quarter of this year. Sprint’s Motorola Photon Q is still on track for Jelly Bean 4.1, though an exact time frame hasn’t been given. If I owned the original Photon 4G or any other eligible device, I could upgrade to a newer Motorola phone using the $100 rebate phone. If my phone isn’t listed, then I can pretty

How to extend the battery life?


Saturday 26th of February 2011 / androidforums.com
Hi, my first time posting here. I've been stalking the boards recently in anticipation of the official Froyo update. Thanks so much to all the regular posters for all your tips - the Captivate is my first Android phone (am a recovering BB addict!) and I was kinda nervous about doing the Froyo update, just concerned about bricking the phone, etc. Thanks to you guys, I went ahead and updated, it went really smoothly and am so happy I can now use apps like Skype that I couldn't use before. It made a great phone even better! So, my question is re: battery life - about the only downside of this phone. I find that with a day's worth of moderate usage - some games, checking email, FB updates, etc., the battery is pretty much is done by the end of the day. Do you guys have any tips or tricks for extending the battery life (any apps that are battery hogs, anything I should kill after using) Or do you have any recommendations for a battery I could buy to extend usage? Thanks in advance!

How To Get The Most Out Of Your Battery


Tuesday 05th of October 2010 / androidforums.com
There are numerous threads about the battery life of the Desire and almost all are filled with anecdotes, arguments and claims of insanely poor or insanely good battery life. Here are some tips on how, as a new user, one can maximize the life of a single charge on HTC Desire.1) Make sure the battery is charged to 100%. This may seem obvious (the LED is green so it must be fully charged, right?) but new users may be unaware of the way the battery charges. You can check charge exactly by "dialing" *#*#4636#*#* to open the Testing menu. From here hit Battery information and it'll give you a precise measurement of the charge (the graphic icon in the status bar tends to round up the measurement giving a slightly skewed indication of the charge. It may for example register 100% but the Battery information reveals the charge to be only 93%. 2) Switch off Background data and Always on mobile data if you don't need them. Background data is found in Settings>Accounts & sync. Always on mobile data is found in Settings>Wireless & networks> Mobile networks. 3)Put wifi a
