DxOMark ranks the Moto X Style above the iPhone 6

Usually, we have to wait for a few more days after a new smartphone has launched to see any kind of camera benchmark from DxOMark. Surprisingly, the website has come out with one immediately after Motorola announced its new smartphones. In this case, DxOMark took the high end Moto X Style for a spin. Lo and behold, the smartphone was able to grab the second (or third) highest spot in the list, standing just behind the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge (and Galaxy S6) and shoulder to shoulder with the Galaxy Note 4. As a result, this has pushed back the iPhone 6 Plus to fifth place.

Moto X Pure Edition: 5 facts you need to know

Today Motorola revealed several new smartphones, the most compelling of which happens to be coming without a carrier. The Moto X Pure Edition will be released in the United States without a carrier starting at four hundred dollars. While smartphones (like Sony's range, for example) have been coming to the United States off-contract and off-carrier in their primary release for several years now, Motorola is doing something different. In addition to making the device affordable (not cheap, but within reason), they've finally released a device that works on all carriers.

This morning Motorola revealed details on their three newest smartphones: the Moto X Style, the Moto X Play, and the 3rd gen Moto G.

Moto X Play detailed: smaller screen, bigger battery

This week Motorola has revealed three devices, the "best of both worlds" model coming in as the Moto X Play. This device has a 5.5-inch display while the Moto X Style has a 5.7-inch display, allowing the Moto X Play to "play longer." You'll also have a 1080p display instead of Quad-HD with a slightly larger battery at 3,600mAh instead of just 3,000. It might just be that the Moto X Play is the best choice amongst the three devices Motorola's revealed today - or at least the longest lasting in the field.

Moto X 3rd gen leak: larger screen, same res, microSD slot

Moto X 3rd gen leak: larger screen, same res, microSD slot

It's about time that Motorola's flagship get its fair share of leaks, though it might barely matter with just a few hours left before the real deal hits. That is, unless Motorola's 28th July event is meant only for the new Moto G. In any case, the Moto X that is being revealed in this latest leak may or may not be worth all the excitement. Sure there are marked improvements over last year's model, but depending on what you're looking for in a 2015 flagship, you might be a bit disappointed.

Why I won’t be buying a new Moto X or G

Why I won’t be buying a new Moto X or G

Next week Motorola will likely reveal the next Moto X, a flagship phone that'll be better than any they've made before. What we're exploring today is the idea that Motorola already made a device so good that there's no reason to upgrade. What I'm suggesting here is that Motorola's 2014 Moto X is so good in basically every way a smartphone should be, that users might be better off buying that phone than whatever Motorola reveals this year. As we've said before, this is also true of the original Moto G.

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.
