How does Motorola’s newly introduced DROID Turbo stack up against the rest of its phones from this year, like the Nexus 6, Moto X (2nd gen) and Moto G? Quite well actually. In fact, one could argue that it bests all of the other phones from Motorola, including the Nexus 6. (more…)
Following directly after the announcement of Lollipop by Google, Motorola was quick to announce upcoming updates for most of its devices. Included in the list of supported devices are of course the first and second gen. Moto X phones, as well as all of last year’s DROID units.
For those among us who need a more visual representation of what is coming to Motorola device owners, Moto has set up a special tracking page for the Android 5.0 update. (more…)
Motorola may have had a hand in crafting one of the first devices to run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, but that thankfully doesn’t mean the manufacturer isn’t committed to its existing product lineup.
In a blog post today, Motorola confirmed both the older and newer Moto X and Moto G, Moto G with LTE, Moto E, and all three current-generation Droid smartphones – the Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, and Droid Mini – will receive an upgrade to Lollipop. (more…)
The original Moto G LTE, not to be confused with the Moto G that Motorola announced a month ago, will be available at AT&T starting October 10. The device will run $199 with no annual contract, $79.99 with a 1-year contract, or as low as $7.50 per month with an AT&T Next plan. Again, this is not the new Moto G, this is the original that was announced in November 2013, only now it has LTE on board.
As a recap, the original Moto G sports a 4.5-inch HD display (720p), quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, 2,070mAh battery, 5MP camera, and runs a “pure” Android experience. It does not have Moto Display or Moto Voice, but does have access to add-ons like Moto Assist. This is the phone that became Motorola’s best selling smartphone of all time within a few months.
October 10 is the day if you want to buy one through AT&T. (more…)
Think your old Moto X or Moto G is looking a bit long in the tooth? There may be a bit of incentive to hang onto your last-generation handset. In reference to the capabilities of Motorola’s new/refreshed quartet of devices, Vice President of Product Management Punit Soni wrote in a post on Google+, “as long as the Hardware [sic] allows it [...] all that software will come to our existing users too.” (more…)
Two of Motorola’s apps found in Google Play received updates this morning, bringing added support for Home and Driving modes to the Moto G and Moto E. Contextual Services is the app that essentially powers the Motorola Assist and Touchless Control (aka Moto Voice) applications, so if you happen to own a Moto G and Moto E, these updates will be a necessity to you.
