What does a “modular” smartphone even mean? Google thinks it means breaking apart almost every component of a phone, as with Project Ara. LG’s newest G5 smartphone has a removable bottom, which allows you to slide on a camera grip or a bigger battery. Today, at Lenovo Tech World in San Francisco, we saw what Motorola…
Images of yet-to-be-announced gadgets can be a bit of a crapshoot. Anyone with a laptop and a decent knowledge of Photoshop can send fan boys frothing. So part of me hopes that these new Moto X images are fake, but growing evidence suggests they are, in fact, the real deal.
The second generation of the Moto 360 smartwatch made some big improvements over its predecessor when it was released a few months back, chief among them having a design that was actually watch-like. Now, a fitness-focused version of that watch, the Moto 360 Sport, is finally coming in January.
“What’s the best smartphone?” It’s a question I hear at least once or twice a month.
Believe it or not, it’s not Sod’s Law that dictates a dropped smartphone will land screen down: it’s actually the same physics that influences buttered toast in free-fall.
There is no shortage of high performance Android phones out there, and it can be hard to find a good reason to go with one over the other. The Droid Turbo 2 has a couple of features that say hey over here, pick me. pick me!! But a great phone has to feel right in many different ways, and this one might catch a nerve…
We are in the midst of reviewing the recently announced Motorola Droid Turbo 2, and one of the most interesting features of the phone is its supposedly shatterproof display. Any phone can survive one or two errant drops. But what about seventy?
Verizon just unleashed two new Droid smartphones, each styled after Motorola’s latest. Where the burly Droid Turbo 2 falls more inline with the top-tier Moto X Pure Edition, the Droid Maxx 2 is a Verizon version of the Moto X Play, a phone that never actually came to the U.S. Under a slightly different guise, it’s now…
Creating the Verizon Droid is a simple formula at this point: Take Motorola’s latest and greatest, in this case the new Moto X Pure Edition, and supercharge the specs in every direction. Bigger battery. Bigger processor. So on and so on. But for the Turbo 2, Verizon has a whole new trick—the display is shatterproof.
When smartwatches became a real thing you could buy, and not just a 80s fantasy dreamed up by Casio and Seiko, they looked unmistakably like technology on your wrist. Tech companies were mired in making a wristputer, rather than a wristputer you actually want to wear. But this year, that’s all changed.
When it comes to experiencing Android the way Google intended, you have surprisingly few options. Two, really. Google’s own Nexus smartphone—made by a parade of different hardware partners—and Motorola. The new Moto X Pure Edition is the new unspoiled Android champion. It can do Android even better than Google.
Every time a new shiny phone is released, the typical claims of how great its camera is are barfed from the mouths of marketing professionals. It’s no different with the new Moto X, whose previous incarnation took disappointing shots. But the new 2015 edition might just deserve a seat alongside other smartphone…
The Moto 360 was one of the first wearables that got us thinking, “Yeah, this whole smartwatch thing just might work.” It had some flaws, sure, but it was a functioning computer on your wrist and it wasn’t completely terrible. Now, Motorola is taking another stab at with the new Moto 360—cleaning up the design but…
Reliable leaker Upleaks posted three images today of Motorola’s new Moto 360 Android Wear lineup, including the newest addition to the family: the Sport.
The Moto X Style is Motorola’s newest flagship phone, but this year, the company did things a little differently, by launching a second smartphone that’s nearly as interesting as the first: the Moto X Play. However, it was unclear whether the Play would be coming to the US at all.
Inexpensive smartphones all come with compromises, but we’ve reached a point when those glaring setbacks are less noticeable. The new Moto G is totally solid phone, which will make you wonder why you’d pay for a flagship when what you get for $220 is so damn good.
Motorola just released a hardware Kraken the likes of which we’ve never seen. The new Moto X Style! The battery-conscious Moto X Play! And then there’s the Moto G. Only a few years ago, no one would care about the lesser budget sibling alongside these two powerhouses—but the Moto G is Motorola’s real smartphone…
The Moto X Style is in every way a successor to last year’s Moto X. It’s got all the requisite upgrades you’d expect: the better quad HD display, the better 21 megapixel rear camera with a front-facing selfie flash, and just an all around better look and feel. And somehow, it only costs $400.
When looking for the next great phone to ride shotgun through your life, there are a few things it needs to do well. It needs to have a great display, look neat, and not have garbage battery life. With the third-generation Moto X, Motorola is laser-focused on all three.
