MOTO X

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. Could Motorola have made a mistake, creating too large a value gap between their two hero phones?

Moto X’s secret weapon: Custom Voice Prompts

When Moto X was first launched last year, it came with the first "any screen" voice command system. Re-named Moto Voice, that system is back with the 2014 version of Moto X.

This is the new Moto X for 2014: Hands-on

This is the new Moto X for 2014: Hands-on

As recipes for success go, the new 2014 Moto X has a good one: take the wildly popular concept of a keenly priced flagship smartphone that punches well above its weight, and then refine the heck out of the design, construction, and materials until it can comfortably stand alongside rivals with no shame whatsoever. If you thought the original Moto X was competitive, then its update for 2014 is nothing less than fighting talk from Motorola.

Who says a smart wearable has to be a watch or an eyepiece? Motorola thinks there’s a future in wearables that whisper to you, with the Moto Hint Bluetooth headset its chosen approach.

You don’t want a Moto G2

You don’t want a Moto G2

We do not need another Moto G. Rumors over the past couple of weeks have suggested that Motorola is creating a second-generation device, one that’ll have a larger display and a larger price tag. Does that defeat the purpose? Absolutely.

Digital Tattoos drop the Moto X requirement soon

Digital Tattoos drop the Moto X requirement soon

After a week with a digital tattoo for the Motorola Moto X, and only for the Motorola Moto X, it became apparent that we needed more. Not more tattoos - we’re fine with this test with this tech, as it’s relatively limiting. Instead, we’re pumped up about our chat with the creators of the digital tattoo, VivaLnk - especially regarding the upgrade.

VivaLnk Digital Tattoo Review: An Android’s best friend

When we first heard about digital tattoos, the thought of forever bonding one’s self with technology that could very well be outdated by the time the art was done seemed… less than appealing. As it turned out, Motorola’s first chatter on the next level in the wearables game wasn’t quite so permanent.

This week the digital tattoo - temporary tattoo, that is to say - has been made a real product by the folks at Motorola, Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group, and VivaLnk Inc.

Possible Moto X+1 specs leaked in Brazil

If you’re excited about the next flagship from Motorola, you’re not alone. The Moto X was a great example of how an OEM should handle Android, and leaves many who have one clamoring for the next iteration. So far, little has been known, but a slip-up in South America might have blown the cover off what many are calling the X+1.

Copper ‘tattoo’ unlocks your Moto X just by tapping it

When Motorola disbanded in the sale to Lenovo, their ATAP division stuck around at Google. A neat idea they were working on was digital tattoos, which makes your entire body an “authentication token”. That’s come to life — sort of — via an NFC enabled tattoo.
