Hands on: Meet the new Moto 360

Hands on: Meet the new Moto 360

By on September 2, 2015 at 3:00 PM.

Motorola’s Moto 360 smartwatch was arguably the first such device worthy of our attention when it debuted in 2014. The Android-powered watch was sleek and stylish in a world full of clunky, unattractive designs, adding some much-needed style to the Android smartwatch landscape. But the very fact that it was an Android smartwatch was one of its biggest problems; Android Wear was great in concept, however in reality it was practically unusable for the average consumer.

On Wednesday, Motorola unveiled the second-generation versions of its Moto 360 smartwatch, looking to improve on the first-generation version in every way possible. While it did accomplish that goal to an extent, the original model’s biggest problems may still be barriers for many users.

With the new Moto 360, Motorola chose to focus on a few different key areas, with the first and most obvious being personalization. The first-gen model offered buyers a few different choices when it came to case color and band type, but the new version takes things to an entirely new level. More →

Live coverage: Watch live as Motorola unveils its brand new Android lineup

For a period of time in late 2014, the Moto X was the best Android phone on the planet. It wasn’t the most powerful Android flagship and it wasn’t the thinnest. It didn’t have the highest-resolution display and it didn’t have the support of a billion-dollar marketing budget. The Moto X was, however, the most well-rounded Android flagship on the market. It was sleek, it was unique, it had solid specs and it could be customized in dozens of different ways.

Meanwhile, the 2014 Moto G was shockingly capable for a handset that was so affordable, offering all-day battery life, respectable specs and a surprisingly good screen for under $200 with no service contract. It was an improvement over its predecessor in every conceivable way.

Now, it’s time to see if Motorola can bring something new to the table in 2015. More →

Moto X Vs. Galaxy S6 Bloatware

Why Android Fans Should be Grateful Motorola Still Exists

Why Android Fans Should be Grateful Motorola Still Exists

Motorola’s smartphones don’t get the same level of hype and attention that Samsung’s do, and that’s actually a real shame. One of the things that really impressed us about the second-generation Moto X in particular was how it didn’t spam us with gimmicky software — instead, the few additions it made to Android were really well thought out and useful. In an interview with Green Bot, Motorola senior VP of software engineering Seang Chau explains how the Moto X’s lack of bloatware is all part of the company’s philosophy of leaving a light touch on its devices.
