While the Android 4.4.4 KitKat update hasn’t always meant a ton of new features for many devices out there in the market, at least the ones lucky enough to get the update so far, when it comes to Motorola-branded handsets, this particular upgrade is certainly worthwhile.

Publishing their proprietary apps on Google Play is one of the best moves some Android manufacturers have made in recent times, allowing them to separate these apps from the system and update them independently of software updates. HTC released a few of its Sense 6 apps from the HTC One M8 earlier this year, and today the Taiwanese manufacturer is following up by putting the Sense keyboard on the Play Store.
Along with the Mi 4, Xiaomi also unveiled a tracking band — the Mi Band — at a ridiculously low price of $13. The company’s first wearable can monitor your fitness and track your sleep levels, and can also act as an alarm.

It’s very easy to be dismissive of the LG G Watch and its other Android Wear stablemates, mid 2014. They’re easy targets, bulky on the wrist, with hardware that’s demonstrably sub-optimal and with functionality that usually stops short of seamless. But don’t be fooled. The G Watch – or at least whatever follows it – is set to make a major impact on your life and the lives of your friends and colleagues. But don’t write the smartphone off – the ‘smartwatch’ is completely and utterly joined at the hip to its ‘host’ Android phone, so you’ll need both.
