DEAL: Moto G (3rd Gen) 16GB Drops to $199 at Motorola for Limited Time

The Moto G (3rd gen), a phone that at its price point is almost impossible to beat, is now cheaper than ever, thanks to a short-term deal over at Motorola’s store. From today through March 7, you can buy the Moto G (3rd gen) for $199 without a contract. The deal includes the 16GB version that has 2GB RAM and normally carriers a price of $220. So yeah, you get a $20 discount.

We reviewed the 3rd gen G and told you to run to Motorola’s site as fast as your little virtual legs can go and buy it if your budget is $200. It’s a heck of a value that features top notch performance, excellent battery life, and custom options through Moto Maker. Even after almost a year, it still should be a solid budget option, unless you have another $70 or so to push towards a Nexus 5X. Ooh, decisions.  (more…)

Motorola Details Which Phones to Receive Marshmallow Update (Updated)

When Lollipop was released by Google last year, it seemed many OEMs were in a race to deliver the good to customers as quickly as possible. As we all saw, Lollipop was absolutely riddled with bugs and performance issues, leaving a few Android users wishing they still had Kit Kat. This year, the same thing is happening, but each OEM has stated that they will not send out any OTA updates until they know the OS is stable and ready for consumers.

Motorola has now posted its official list of devices that as of this morning, should see the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. As no surprise, most of Motorola’s newer lineup will see the update, including the Moto X Pure Edition, Moto G (2nd Gen, 3rd Gen, and LTE 2nd Gen), and DROID Turbo(more…)
