AT&T releases Moto G LTE, Motorola’s best-selling budget phone

This week the folks at AT&T have decided it’s time to bring the Moto G with LTE connectivity to their collection of phones. But they’re not bringing the newest version of the device to market, they’re bringing last year’s model. Here’s why that’s totally OK: the original is still good. Not even just for its price. It's just a good phone. Solidly built, ready to take on your daily tasks - and it's ready to be customized too. It's more of a "why not" situation than a "why."

Back in the year 2012, Google acquired Motorola. It wasn’t just Google’s acquisition of Motorola that changed how they approach product design and software development.

With the whispers from the Her-like Hint still echoing in my ears, I sat down with Steve Horowitz, senior vice president for software engineering at Motorola, to talk about wearables, fitting into Lenovo’s ecosystem, and what he’ll miss when out from under Google’s umbrella.

Is Moto G better than Moto X (2014)?

Is Moto G better than Moto X (2014)?

Last year we had a bit of a chat surrounding our reviews of Moto X and Moto G, and several readers suggested something outrageous. They suggested that the Moto G (2013) might be a better value than the Moto X (2013). This year, the differences between the two devices are more radical than they were last year.

Now, for 2014, there’s the new Moto G, promising to answer the key complaints about its predecessor while still keep its budget crown.

You don’t want a Moto G2
