Moto Tab marks a return to a stagnating market

Moto Tab marks a return to a stagnating market

Quick, when was the last time you heard of a Motorola tablet? If you've been around the industry long enough, you might vaguely remember the Motorola XOOM 2, which launched way back in 2011. A lot has happened to the company since then, including changing owners twice. Now that it's under new management, it seems that ol' Moto is adopting Lenovo's business model of introducing a dozen and one devices per year. That seems to now apply even to tables, with Motorola's first new tablet in 6 years, the plainly named Moto Tab.

Motorola Moto Z2 Force Review: Modular compromise

Motorola Moto Z2 Force Review: Modular compromise

Motorola’s Moto Z2 Force couldn’t have asked for a better - or tougher - test over the last week, as it became my go-to phone on back to back events. The tl:dr? It’s an evolutionary follow-up to the first-gen Moto Z Force, for better and worse. Full disclosure, I’ve always had a soft spot for the Z’s raw and rugged design when there isn’t a Moto Mod attached to the back. When I saw that it had loaded up with upgraded specs and a thinner design, I was mighty curious to see how the changes played out.

Moto Z2 Force screen won’t shatter, might scratch

Moto Z2 Force screen won’t shatter, might scratch

Considering most of the time we spend on our smartphones is spent on their screens, it’s no surprise this where most of the attention is lavished upon. From curved edges to bezel-less displays, our smartphone screens have become more exquisite and seemingly more fragile as well. Scratch tests abound to reassure consumers that it isn’t so, but Motorola might be taking a slightly different spin with the newly announced Moto Z2 Force. The smartphone boasts of a screen that won’t easily shatter when dropped, but Motorola might have sacrificed some else in return.

Moto Z2 Force US model tipped with stunted specs and smaller battery

The Moto Z2 Force may prove a disappointment for U.S. buyers if a new report is accurate. According to leaked marketing materials, the model sold in the U.S. will have more modest specs than the versions sold elsewhere, one example being the inclusion of only 4GB of RAM versus the 6GB everyone else will get. The battery, too, will shed considerable capacity according to the materials.

Moto G5S Plus leak hints at an aspiring dual camera figher

The dual camera craze has hit the mid-range. Thanks to chip makers supporting this mobile photography trend, smartphone makers are finally able to put two cameras on the back.

Moto E4 Review: Verizon’s best cheap phone

Moto E4 Review: Verizon’s best cheap phone

This week the Motorola-made Moto E4 for Verizon is on our review desk, and things are looking up. This device is one of the lowest-cost Motorola smartphones ever made, made to take the place of the Moto G as king of the budget smartphones. Where the Moto G was one of the most inspiring low-cost high-quality phones made in the past half-decade, the Moto E4 is the less-hyped but better-suited tiny monster that's now the best value smartphone available through Verizon - and soon other carriers, too.

Here’s what you get when you buy a Moto Z2 Play now

Motorola's 2017 flagship is still MIA but, for now, it is making a mid-range play. Yes, pun totally intended. Announced right at the start of this month, the Moto Z2 Play is finally coming into play, er, available for purchase, giving Android fans a more affordable way to enjoy the Moto Mods promise. But while it does come cheaper than most flagships this year, there are some thing you might want to consider before whipping out your wallet.

Moto Z2 “officially” confirmed to have dual cameras

Moto Z2 “officially” confirmed to have dual cameras

Most companies try to keep their upcoming products under wraps but some things sometimes slip through the cracks. And sometimes, the companies themselves let those slip, intentionally or otherwise. We're still not sure which of the two is the case here, but Motorola has definitely spilled the biggest bean about its upcoming flagship. In an invite for what could only be the Moto Z2 or Moto Z2 Force, it not just hints but practically confirms that it will, indeed, have two cameras on its back.

Moto Z2 Play will sacrifice battery life for a thinner frame

Moto Z2 Play will sacrifice battery life for a thinner frame

Fans of Lenovo's original Moto Z Play got a pleasant surprise last month when press photos of the successor — the Z2 Play — were leaked, showing off a clean device with a minimal design. Unfortunately, that leak has now been followed with a handful of details on specs, and there's one in particular that's arguably a significant downgrade: a much smaller battery.

More Moto E4, E4 Plus details get leaked

More Moto E4, E4 Plus details get leaked

Once upon a time, Motorola's smartphone story was simple. The Moto X was its high-end champion, the Moto E its entry-level offer and the Moto G for those that wanted something in between. Now we have a Moto Z line with three models, a Moto G5 with two models, a still to be confirmed Moto X 2017, and a still to be announced fourth gen Moto E and Moto E Plus. The latter two are the subjects of this most recent leak that paints the Moto E4 Plus in a rather positive light, save for one understandable flaw.
