Verizon subscribers toting Motorola’s 2016 flagship phone, the Moto Z Force Droid, received an update earlier today. Was it the long awaited (and promised) update to Android 8.0? Not a chance. Moto Z Force Droid owners received an Android security update. And while a security update might be helpful to owners of the phone, today’s update only took the Android security patch level to December 2017.
Since the January Android security update contains the patch protecting handsets from the Meltdown and Spectre exploits, the Moto Z Force Droid remains vulnerable to Spectre. The latter affects …
As many of you know, Verizon offers two different unlimited plans, Go Unlimited and Beyond Unlimited. The former is the lower priced of the two options, and offers DVD-quality video streaming (480p) as opposed to the HD streaming (720p) available on the premium version. Another difference between both plans is the 15GB of high speed hotspot/tethering offered with Beyond Unlimited every month, compared to the 600Kbps speed cap that Go Unlimited subscribers experience for hotspot/tethering use.

Four days ago, we told you about Verizon’s new deal for the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL. Without requiring a trade-in, as Verizon demanded in a previous version of the deal, new and existing Big Red customers are able to walk into a nearby Verizon Store and save $300 on the purchase of either new Pixel model. The phones must be bought using Verizon’s device payment plan, and the $300 discount is applied through a bill credit of $12.50 that will show up on your account each month for two years.
