Review: Motorola maxx Ve
The Ve uses Verizon Wireless's standard user interface. Hitting the center of the D-pad takes you to the main menu. The default position is your contacts listing. The Verizon menu has 5 choices, or tabs, spread across the top of the screen: Get It Now, Messaging, Contacts, Calls, and Settings. Hitting the D-pad left or right scrolls sideways through the tabs. When a tab is highlighted, a list of options is presented in a numerical list below the tab.
The Get It Now menu is where you'll find music, photos, video, V CAST and access to Verizon's WAP Web portal and other applications and services.
The rest of the menus pretty much deliver what you'd expect from them. The messaging menu gives you access to SMS, MMS, IM and email. The contacts menu lets you view, add or edit contacts. The calls menu lists all calls to and from the phone. And the settings menu gives you access to all the customizable aspects of the Ve, such as selecting ringtones, alert tones, setting up wallpapers and more.

The basic functionality of this menu system cannot be altered. It is simple and direct to use, but its lack of flexibility is often frustrating.

The unannounced new Motorola RAZR with a foldable display has been revealed in public documents for its FCC approval. Photos in the documents match previous leaks, including a very tall, narrow screen that folds in half, inside a body very much like the original RAZR, including a "chin" at the bottom.
A quick look at the Bold N1, an attempt to offer a flagship experience for just $250. Where else will you find a phone for that price with a true all-screen design, pop-up selfie camera, in-display fingerprint reader, and wireless charging?
A video mini-review of the Samsung Galaxy Note10, the smaller of the two Note models this year. Here are the things that stood out to me after using the Note10 as my main phone for two weeks.
Motorola describes the new Edge as their one premium phone for the US for 2021, (besides whatever RAZR they may or may not introduce.) It's not a flagship, but it's well above the usual affordable fare that Motorola has primarily focused on in recent years. It has a fast-refresh display and a whopping 108 megapixel main camera.
