Motorola updates Moto X 2014 Pure Edition to Android 6.0

Motorola is not going through the best phase of their lives right now, but updates are still coming (even if they are not as fast as last year’s updates to Lollipop when they managed to beat Google’s Nexus devices to the punch too).       Moto X 2014 Pure Edition is getting its update to Android Marshmallow as we speak. Even if the OTA is coming a little late, it is still a good thing that the device was not forgotten. The OTA will reach devices globally and it is a pretty big one, weighing around 880MB.   In order to have things running well, we recommend you do a factory reset before updating, but you can skip it if you are eager to try Marshmallow and have too many things to save on your device.   In order to check if your Moto X 2014 Pure Edition is ready for update, you can go to Settings → About Phone → System Updates and check manually. If you don’t want to bother, you may have to wait for a day or two for when the update reaches your specific smartphone. Carrier branded Moto X 2nd edition devices should get their updates soon as well, but if you have a Verizon one, you will have to wait for a while longer.   Source: Phandroid  

Motorola Moto X 2014 gets new real leather back in red color – option available for France, UK, Germany and the US

Motorola Moto X 2014 is back with a vengeance in its new red as fire leather outfit! If you live in France, UK, Germany or the US, you can now order a red Horween leather back panel for your Moto X2014 just to match your phone with your designer shoes!     The upgrade itself is $25 in the US, just like all the other options, and you can even engrave it. For $50 or $100 you can add 32GB or 64GB of additional storage. The red leather option is available to all unlocked and carrier-discounted phones from AT&T and Verizon. The actual color of the coat could be a little different from what you see as in images it is shown a few hues brighter than the color seen in the Moto Maker. Don’t forget this is real leather coming from a real cow so if you have an issue with that you should not buy it. Also, it will not be as durable as a usual plastic back. In time, it will absorb oils from you skin, which will deteriorate its appearance, making it look worn. But that could be a good thing for some people. Source: Moto Maker
