In mid-2016, Moto and Lenovo launched the Moto Z, which could have been seen as the end of the Moto X lineup. However, following that event, Moto clarified that the Moto X is “alive and well,” but we still haven’t heard of any new devices launching within that lineup. That may soon change, though, if the latest CAD render video pans out to be accurate. (more…)
You might find this hard to believe, but it has been over three years since Motorola first introduced Moto Maker and the original Moto X. Everyone remember those good times, where you could custom design a phone to your liking, wait while it was assembled in Texas, and then receive it within four or five days? Ahhh, the good ol’ days.
Back in August of 2013, shortly after we reviewed the Moto X, we received our first custom order. Even though our in-depth review was done, the fact that we had another phone in house that was designed by us seemed like a moment worth sharing. And I think I felt that almost every time we designed another (yes, we designed like five of these things) because it was such a unique and personal experience that no one else was offering. (more…)
Motorola published a complete list of devices that will see Nougat at some point, with fifteen devices making the cut at this time. As you might expect, newer devices like the Moto Z and DROID Turbo 2 are listed, but others that could also be labeled as new, such as the Moto G (2015), are absent from the list.
Other notables included are the Nexus 6, DROID Maxx 2, Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen), and the 4th Gen lineup of the Moto G. It should also be noted that no Moto E devices are listed here. (more…)
The Moto X Pure Edition, a phone sold unlocked in 2015 as a single flagship with universal carrier support that should be able to receive the timeliest of updates because there is no interference between its maker and users, is receiving its first update in months. It’s tough to be precise on this, as there have been notices of updates here or there that our in-house units never saw, but it may be the first real update since February or March. (more…)
As we inch closer to the summer launch of the Moto Z brand, it only makes sense that Motorola and its retail partners try and clear out any remaining Moto X Pure Edition inventory. Today, they should be able to do that in a hurry with the crazy low prices they are currently offering the phone for with 16GB or 64GB of storage.
Most retailers who carry the phone are selling the 16GB Moto X Pure Edition for just $239.00, which is a $110 discount. If you want all the storage, you can grab the 64GB version for just $319.00, a $130 discount. B&H Photo, Best Buy, and Amazon all have each phone for that low price. (more…)
In a statement provided to Android Police following the Lenovo Tech World keynote, Motorola says that the Moto X is “alive and well.” Citing the somewhat recent launch (October, 2015) of the Moto X Force overseas, Motorola clarifies that the purpose of the Moto Z line is not to replace the Moto X, but to offer something a bit different to consumers.
