Lenovo Mobile to be shuttered into Motorola

Lenovo Mobile to be shuttered into Motorola

Just a little over two months since Chen Xudong took over the helm of Lenovo's mobile business, he is making perhaps the biggest announcement to the biggest change in the subsidiary. In the still undisclosed future, Lenovo Mobile will be fully integrated into Motorola and then will cease to exist as a separate and distinct entity. Thia practically makes Motorola THE Lenovo smartphone company, except perhaps for the existence of ZUK. This is in line with Lenovo's plan to let Motorola handle more and more of its mobile operations.

Moto X Play as DROID Maxx 2, Moto X Style as DROID Turbo 2

Moto X Play as DROID Maxx 2, Moto X Style as DROID Turbo 2

"A rose by any other name" or so the quote goes. It seems that when Motorola says a device is exclusive to one country or isn't coming to another country, it shouldn't be taken too literally. Or in this case, nominally. While the Moto X Play was noted to be unavailable in the US, it might actually just go by another name, the DROID Maxx 2. The Moto X Style, on the other hand, which will be the unlocked Moto X Pure Edition in the US, will take on the DROID Turbo 2 name under Verizon.

Next Moto 360 expected to come in two sizes

Next Moto 360 expected to come in two sizes

While the original Moto 360 smartwatch is still easily the best designed Android Wear device, with its simple circular 1.56-inch screen, one common criticism was that it was a little big for those with small wrists. Some recently discovered regulatory documents from Brazil have indicated that Motorola has learned from the feedback and will be releasing the 360's successor in two sizes. This would also follow after Apple's move of releasing the Watch in two sizes, a factor that has contributed to its initial success.

Lenovo to lay off 10% of staff, let Motorola lead mobile

Lenovo to lay off 10% of staff, let Motorola lead mobile

It feels only like yesterday that Lenovo was celebrating a revenue jump in 2014. Releasing the figures for the first quarter of 2015, however, things have taken a drastic downward turn. Although the company's quarterly revenue saw a 3 percent increase in year-over-year numbers at $10.7 billion, it missed analyst expectations of an $11.29 billion figure. Worse, its actual net income took a steep dive to $105 million, a 50 percent decline from the same period last year. In short, Lenovo needs to take equally drastic measures.

Moto G Review 2015 (3rd Gen)

Moto G Review 2015 (3rd Gen)

Motorola continues to run the low-cost mid-range smartphone game with their 3rd-generation Moto G here in the year 2015. When they released the first Moto G we were skeptical - how could a smartphone that doesn't cost more than a couple hundred dollars be worth using? As it turned out, the device wasn't half bad, and with Motorola's continued software support YEARS later, we've grown nothing but more confident in the company's ability to create the best low-cost smartphone line around.

Moto G 3rd gen 16GB sold out in less than a week

Moto G 3rd gen 16GB sold out in less than a week

While we do not know how much stock Motorola had available of the 3rd gen Moto G, we do know that they've sold out of their 16GB edition in just a few days. Going on sale the first day it was revealed, July 28th, 2015, the Moto G 3rd gen is no longer available through Motorola online. This isn't a limited edition sort of thing, they're going to make more, but the fact remains: this appears to be a continued success story for Motorola, or at least one that they're ill-prepared to handle demand for.

DxOMark ranks the Moto X Style above the iPhone 6

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

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 device also has the same ability to customize with Moto Maker - that means wood backs, leather, and a new coated silicon rubber soft back.

New Moto G gets official debut from Motorola

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.
