Motorola’s gorgeous Moto 360 might have a successor in the making

Motorola’s Android Wear-based Moto 360 was one of the most interesting early smartwatches running on Google’s wearable platform thanks to its simple, round design. Many others have adopted the same design for new smartwatches, including LG and Huawei. But Motorola is also rumored to be working on a new watch of its own, likely a second-generation Moto 360 version, and early details seem very promising. More →

My favorite Android phone in the world just had its price slashed by 25%

HTC’s new One M9 and Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones all seem fantastic, and we were thoroughly impressed by each and every one when we previewed them at Mobile World Congress. But if you need a new smartphone right now, unfortunately none of these new phones are available for sale yet.

If you’re a smartphone shopper with an urgent need to upgrade, however, don’t despair — my favorite Android phone on the planet just had its price slashed by 25%. More →

Motorola’s plan to fight back against the Apple Watch

As expected, the Apple Watch has captured the attention of everyone interested in the growing wearable market. That’s not to say that everyone was impressed by it — we have plenty of our own issues with the device — but it will likely lead the conversation for the foreseeable future… unless, of course, other vendors start fighting back.

Motorola’s next major handset tipped to be ‘smarter than any other smartphones’

The Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 are going to soon be unveiled, but apparently none of them will be as smart as Motorola’s upcoming flagship device. The company’s 2014 flagship handsets, including the Nexus 6, Droid Turbo and Moto X are still relatively young, but the company is tipped to launch a new flagship soon. More →

Lenovo’s decision to buy Motorola is actually starting to make sense

The Nexus 6 is missing a major feature and it’s all Apple’s fault

After previous reports suggested that at least one version of the Nexus 6 would come with a built-in fingerprint sensor that would put the handset on par with similar offerings from Apple and Samsung, a former prominent Google and Motorola exec has confirmed the feature was supposed to be included in the Nexus 6, but blamed Apple for not being able to pull it off.

Moto X Review

The only smartphone that gets better-looking with age

The only smartphone that gets better-looking with age

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: it is positively shocking how good the second-generation Moto X is. Motorola struggled for a long time as Samsung and Apple continued to dominate the smartphone market. More recently, however, other vendors have begun breaking in and finding some success by focusing on areas that cannot be counted among Apple and Samsung’s strengths. China-based smartphone makers are finding success by building quality devices that are surprisingly affordable, for example.

Motorola’s sales aren’t climbing quite as fast as some Chinese vendors, but there’s no denying the company’s position has improved over the past year thanks in part to a similar strategy. Beyond its low-end phones, however, Motorola blew us away with its 2014 flagship handset, the Moto X. More →
