Moto G4, G4 Plus set the mid-range bar higher

Moto G4, G4 Plus set the mid-range bar higher

Motorola launched the Moto G way back in 2013 to be its mid-range champion vis-a-vis the more premium Moto X flagship. For the next two years, it has established itself as the mid-range smartphone in emerging markets even as the Moto X eventually slid off the charts. This year, the fourth generation Moto G is launching first in India and it is stepping up its game with specs and features you might also find in some late 2015 flagships. And yes, Lenovo/Motorola is indeed calling them the Moto G4 and the Moto G4 Plus.

Lenovo X Tango will let us “see” the future [UPDATE]

Lenovo X Tango will let us “see” the future [UPDATE]

It's not long now before Lenovo hosts their "Tech World" event, and with it, a Lenovo smartphone reveal of major proportions. What we're to understand will be there is the final iteration - the release-ready version - of the Lenovo Google Tango phone. It'll be Motorola branded instead, says our anonymous source, or at least that's the plan at the moment - barring some last-minute change. We'd be surprised at such a change at this point, as the phone SHOULD be released not long after the event.

UPDATE: Another source close to the project suggests that the Lenovo Tango phone absolutely will NOT be branded Motorola. We might just have to wait for the Moto Tango for another time!

4th gen Moto G, G Plus outed

4th gen Moto G, G Plus outed

Motorola is gearing up to unveil a new Moto G in India next week. It has even put out rather "interesting" teasers for the event. Given the Moto G's ancestry in Android history, and Motorola's new overlords, there is no small amount of interest revolving around this mid-range smartphone. Indeed, it is already garnering a few reactions based on leaked images of its design. Now, however, we're getting the near complete picture, with most of the specs of both the Moto G and its higher end G Plus sibling leaked for everyone to enjoy.

Moto X4, DROID version photos leaked with odd design choices

Moto X4, DROID version photos leaked with odd design choices

It's been a while since Motorola has put out a smartphone that was the center of the market's attention. It seems, however, that the fourth gen Moto X will generate a lot of noise, and not all of them will be good. If you thought the physical home button slash fingerprint sensor on the front of the 4th gen Moto G was bad enough, take a gander at what is supposed to be the Moto X4's newest design. That includes a large, bulky camera sensor smack in the middle of the smartphone's back.

Motorola’s gone completely tone-deaf with teasers for Moto G 2016

Motorola’s gone completely tone-deaf with teasers for Moto G 2016

This week Motorola India made a series of Tweets teasing their next big handset - but in the process, they seem to have tapped in to the wrong sort of market. Tweeting each of the following images with a "#missing" tag, Motorola seems to have inadvertently lead users to a collection of actual missing people, making the appearance of each of their fake Missing People images look like they're attempting to cash in on tragedy.

Motorola ex-CEO is now Google’s new hardware division chief

Motorola ex-CEO is now Google’s new hardware division chief

We're more than half a year into Alphabet's formation and we're still seeing the ripples and effects. Some products still haven't found a proper home and some that already do are still being relocated. Take, for example, Alphabet's hardware products, many of which are now coming under a new division inside Google. Interestingly enough, this new Google hardware division will be led by Rick Osterloh, who has now come full circle. Osterloh is partly credited for Motorola's success under Google but left Moto last month after Lenovo completed the mobile company's acquisition.

Motorola hit with $5m lawsuit for poor warranty system

Motorola hit with $5m lawsuit for poor warranty system

It isn't uncommon to receive poor customer service and wish you could sue the offending party in response. What is sometimes rare is for customers to do exactly that, especially against a giant company. But that is exactly what is happening to Motorola, filed with a class action suit on behalf of a certain Douglas Lynch. His beef, which is echoed by many other customers, is over Motorola's "unfair, unscrupulous, immoral, and oppressive" business practices. Or to be more specific, for Motorola's failure to fulfill its own warranties.

Alleged 2016 Moto X sighted with Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM

Alleged 2016 Moto X sighted with Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM

After a brief but sensational stint as a Google subsidiary, Motorola's profile in the smartphone market has somewhat declined in status, overshadowed by the bigger players in the industry. While Moto's smartphones remain competitive and even desirable for those who prefer a near vanilla Android experience, those just haven't received the same accolades and hype as the first Moto X and Moto G. The expected new Moto X might turn heads again, but not all in good ways. It will, at least, have some of the latest specs, if this Geekbench sighting is the real deal.

2016 Moto G surfaces in leak, front home button included

2016 Moto G surfaces in leak, front home button included

Good news: the odd Motorola smartphone leaked a while back might not be a Moto X at all but a next gen Moto G instead. Bad news: that means it will have a physical home button. At least that's the implication of this latest batch of leaked photos that show what is allegedly the Moto G4 in all its prototype glory. While details on actual specs remain unknown, the leak does hint at what is practically the first Moto smartphone under Lenovo's full ownership of the former Google subsidiary.

Moto X Pure smartphones get graffiti treatment from artist Futura

Moto X Pure smartphones get graffiti treatment from artist Futura

Motorola has collaborated with an artist to make 30 custom painted smartphones. The artists is one Leonard McGurr, perhaps better known as the graffiti artist Futura. For this collaboration, Motorola provided Futura with 30 Moto X Pure smartphones and the artist used the phones as his canvas for a work of art. The smartphones were laid out on canvas or paper and then spray painted with multiple colors.

Alleged new Moto X leaked with front fingerprint button

Alleged new Moto X leaked with front fingerprint button

Remember Motorola? Yes the company that made the popular RAZR flip phone, got bought by Google, and then got sold off to Lenovo. Considering that sale, the company has been relatively low-key lately, after launching the Moto X Style and friends last year. Of course, we've seen Lenovo design engineer Ashton Kutcher advertising the smartphone just recently. And perhaps Lenovo will need to advertise the next Moto X to death if it will indeed resemble the newest leak that is already earning scathing remarks over the Internet.

Motorola CEO exits Lenovo

Motorola CEO exits Lenovo

Lenovo is reorganizing its innards a bit, and with the mix-up goes Motorola CEO Rick Osterloh. This change has Osterloh out as President and CEO barely 2-years after it was announced that he would be taking the president role ahead of Lenovo's acquisition of Motorola. Back then, former Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside had left the company to become the COO of Dropbox - where he remains today. This news comes about a month after Lenovo announced they'd be de-emphasizing the Motorola brand.
