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.

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.

This afternoon the Moto X Style was revealed by Motorola alongside the Moto G 3rd generation and Moto X Play.

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.

Fasten your seat belts! Next week will be a doozy for devices launch

IFA 2015 is traditionally the time when many companies announce their wares to a captive audience, both physical and virtual. There now seems to be a trend, however, of some of those opting to go ahead, perhaps to avoid clashing with other giants.

To better buckle up, sit back, and enjoy the ride.

It's just a few days before Motorola reveals what it has in store for us in its press event next week, but so far it is the Moto G that has been the center of attraction of many leaks and rumors. Now, however, it's the Moto X flagship's turn to shine. Sort of. Two photos of what is allegedly the next gen Moto X has popped up on the Internet and one in particular is quite interesting. It reveals what looks like a front flash and what could be a fingerprint scanner.

Motorola teases July 28 announcement, new Moto inbound

Motorola has just sent out press invites to a July 28th event that promises to "change our relationship status." Other than the coy message, there's few details about what will be announced, except for that events will be held in both New York City and London. Seeing as how the last 48 hours alone have seen leaks of both the new Moto G and Moto X, it seems likely we'll be hearing about a new phone.

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.
