Lenovo, Moto IFA 2016 teaser: different for the sake of better

In less than a month's time, the tech world will once again be gawking at and drooling over products, gizmos, and whatnots at IFA 2016 in Berlin. It remains to be seen if Samsung still has a few aces prepared after it already unveiled its Galaxy Note 7. LG is definitely building up the hype around the LG V20. Not to be outdone, Lenovo is now also formally giving the public a tease at the latest innovations it has in store for the showroom floor. Including, of course, new Moto Mods for its very young Moto Z line.

Moto Z Force vs. Galaxy S7 Active drop test showdown

One of the big claims with the Motorola Z Force smartphone is that the screen is unbreakable.

Moto Z Play unofficially poses for the camera

Motorola may have already launched its champs for the 2016, but one member of its new "Z" family remains unaccounted for. The Moto Z Play, which was leaked to be in existence, still has to make its existence known to the world. While we still don't know the exact date for that, it might actually be close at hand, given that an actual working model of the smartphone is making rounds on the Internet via some leaked but very clear shots.

Motorola opens the Moto Mod door, apps now available

Motorola opens the Moto Mod door, apps now available

Moto and Verizon have just unleashed the collective power of all Moto Z editions, including the Moto Z Droid and Moto Z Force Droid. But while the smartphones themselves are already the head turner, they become even more so thanks to one crucial part of the spiel: Moto Mods. And Moto is doing more than making these Mods commercially available and configurable through apps. The company is also giving an open invitation to bright minds and tinkerers to expand the ecosystem by developing their own mods.

Moto won’t commit to monthly security patches

Moto won’t commit to monthly security patches

Last year's Stagefright fiasco really shook the Android world to the point that it had Google and manufacturers scrambling to set things right. It has led to Google releasing monthly security updates, which some OEMs, like BlackBerry and Samsung, wear like a badge of pride. Not all companies, however, are able to follow suit and some apparently intentionally do so. The latter happens to include Motorola, a.k.a. the new Moto, who has somewhat made it official that it isn't hastily pursuing a monthly cycle for pushing out security updates, particularly for the new Moto Z and Moto G4.

Moto G4 Review 2016

Moto G4 Review 2016

It's time again to review Motorola's budget king devices, starting with the base device Moto G. Two devices come this year - for some odd reason - both the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus (or Moto G4+ if you prefer). These devices have very similar specifications to one another and could easily be mistaken for one another, as it often is with a two-phone family approach. Here we're not dealing with two screen sizes as we do with Samsung and Apple's two-phone release pattern, here we've got upgrades in camera quality and fingerprint recognition.

Moto E3 photos, specs get a full reveal

Moto E3 photos, specs get a full reveal

With all the coverage and hype surrounding the Moto Z Droid and Force Droid, it's too easy to forget the smartphones that ol' Moto has reserved for the more budget conscious buyers. In fact, even Moto itself didn't spend much time talking about the Moto E3 that it announced last week, beyond generic press shots and descriptions. Luckily, some have dug around deeper to reveal the form and function of this honest to goodness wallet-friendly, entry-level, no nonsense Android smartphone.

Moto Z Force Droid camera is second best, claims DxOMark

Moto Z Force Droid camera is second best, claims DxOMark

Cameras have become a critical aspect of smartphones for the past year or so, to the point that now almost every new flagship is waiting in line for a DxOMark verdict. While definitely not the only game in town, the name has become synonymous with digital camera benchmarks. Which is why Lenovo, Moto, and Verizon should count themselves fortunate that the site has just given the Moto Z Force Droid the second highest score so far, second only to the HTC 10 and the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and surpassing any of Apple's iPhones.

Moto Z Play might still have a headphone jack

Moto Z Play might still have a headphone jack

With Apple believed to be ditching the headphone jack for a Lightning port audio output, Android OEMs are scrambling to beat it to the punch. Except with USB-C ports, of course. A good number have already put out such smartphones, but probably one of the first major global OEM to do so is Motorola, or just Moto for short, with the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. It seems, however, that Moto isn't completely jumping ship yet, but will, instead, give the venerable 3.5 mm hole one last hurrah in the Moto Z Play.
