Android Lollipop 5.1 update comes to Moto X 2

Updates to the newest version of fully-released Android version 5.1 Lollipop have come to the Moto X. This is the second-edition Moto X, the one that comes with a wooden back if you do so choose. This update comes soon after the first Moto X - believe it or not - started receiving the update, continuing Motorola's surprisingly good track record for keeping their devices from the past several years up to date with the newest software from Google. Next up is Android M, otherwise suspected to be called M&M or Marshmallow.

Motorola puts a 30-day trial on unlocked Moto X

Wireless contracts and subsidies might soon be a thing of the past. At least in a perfect world, perfect except for carriers maybe. The number of people buying devices off-contract, as well as the number of those devices being offered, have increasingly grown. Manufacturers like Huawei are thinking up of ways to encourage buyers to ditch subsidies. Motorola is joining that fray by making a new offer for those buying the Moto X without contracts. Try it out for 30 days and, if you don't like it, return it for free.

3rd gen Moto X specs leaks out

It's hard to believe that it has already been seven months since the 2014 Moto X was unveiled, which means there just 5 months left until the next generation. Unless Lenovo/Motorola decides on an August date just like the first Moto X. Naturally, we're beginning to hear of supposed insider info on what the 2015 Moto X will be like, which does sound a bit too good to be true at times. However, it could very well be a litmus test of whether Motorola can keep up with the fame it built back when it was still under Google's care.

Moto X gets fun new ‘chop twice’ feature for flashlight control

Turning on the flashlight on your Android phone takes a few swipes, typically. It’s not hard, but fumbling in the dark can be annoying. Bright screens can blind you while you find your way to the flashlight. Handy, the feature for smartphones is also largely unnatural. We’re used to flicking a switch on a flashlight in-hand, not swiping through screens! Continuing on the gesture-driven path, Motorola has added ‘chop twice for flashlight’, which brings the flashlight feature up on the Moto X with a few swats.

Moto X hits China, has 1 million pre-orders in first week

When Lenovo purchased Motorola from Google, the collective mind share assumed Lenovo wanted inroads into the North American smartphone market to spread their own devices to carriers. That might be true, but the opposite end of the spectrum is having the more immediate impact. In China, where the mobile handset market is bursting at the seams, Apple and Xiaomi are quickly asserting themselves. No to be left out, Lenovo-owned Motorola announced their flagship Moto X would become available for pre-order on January 27. They’ve already got one million potential customers.

Motorola returns to China with Nexus 6-alike Moto X Pro in tow

Now that Chinese company Lenovo holds the reins over Motorola, it was only natural that the smartphone maker will be making its presence known in one of the fastest growing mobile market in the world. All that will start this year with the arrival of three Motorola smartphones in the Chinese market. But Motorola has one rather odd surprise to add to its other odd surprises last year. There's a new Moto X Pro in tow, but, for all intents and purposes aside from the branding, it's basically the Nexus 6.
