Motorola phones get sizable price cuts: What’s going on here?

Before we reach Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Motorola's decided they want to get in on the inventory clearing early. The company's headed for a future in which they have significantly fewer phones for sale at one single time - so say the rumors - so this might be the first outward sign that the switch is being made. The odd thing is, if that's true, why put on discount the smartphones that'll remain in the main lineup?

Motorola One is bringing its notch to the US via Best Buy only [UPDATE]

Motorola One is bringing its notch to the US via Best Buy only [UPDATE]

There is no escaping the notch. Not unless you’re Samsung (at least for now) or a Chinese manufacturer with a crazy slider or elevating motor. Even Google succumbed to it, at least with the Pixel 3 XL. So when the Motorola One and Motorola One Power debuted with one, it wasn’t exactly surprising. Still, some actually do love the notch or at least the all-screen look that the notch brings, which is probably why Motorola has decided to spread at least the Motorola One even further with an availability in the US next week.

Motorola gets DIY fix-friendly with iFixit partnership

Motorola gets DIY fix-friendly with iFixit partnership

This week Motorola became the first smartphone manufacturer to supply OEM parts to iFixit. This is a move that's more important than its immediate result. Providing parts to iFixit means Motorola is publicly signing their support for user-repaired smartphones and tablets. Besides making surprisingly repair-friendly devices (sometimes), this is Motorola's biggest and most public move in said direction.

Moto E5 Android Go available in the US

Moto E5 Android Go available in the US

Android GO is a special configuration of Android, not a separate version, that’s designed to work with hardware-constrained smartphones. There is the immediate presumption that it, therefore, caters only to emerging markets and lower. That said, everyone everywhere deserves to have an Android phone, no matter the budget. Fortunately, Android Go smartphones are starting to come into the US and the latest to join those ranks is the Moto E5.

Moto G7 leaks, looks like the new silver budget king

Moto G7 leaks, looks like the new silver budget king

This morning the Motorola Moto G7 was leaked in images and video format. These images and video come from a source that's been largely (if not entirely) accurate in his leaks for the past several seasons. As such, we have very little reason to believe these are anything but basically 100% accurate in their size, shape, and general look.

Motorola may make these major changes in 2019

The year 2019 might well contain more than one watershed moment for Motorola under Lenovo. Sources today say that Motorola will likely remove several smartphone lines from their lineup while they expand one: Moto G. If all goes as planned, the release of the Moto G7 in 2019 will remind us of the launch of the original Moto G all the way back in the year 2013.

motorola one, one power mix Android One, mid-range specs, notches

At long last, we’re finally given an official look at the motorola one and motorola one power. And, yes, Motorola is stylizing their names that way. As leaked repeatedly, these two are the company’s newest Android One contenders, following the footsteps of what is probably the last Moto X phone, the Moto X4. Don’t got looking for juicy specs though, because even Motorola’s marketing language says it all. These ones are all about a pure Android experience. Fortunately, that also means some Google AI, too!

The last phone spec that matters, in a phone you might not expect

The last phone spec that matters, in a phone you might not expect

The smartphone market around the world diversified to such a point this year that only one spec need matter to you. For me, that spec is the smartphone camera. I need that piece of this puzzle to snap as-perfect and as-finalized as possible photos as possible the first time I hit the shutter button. For others, the most important spec might be the display, or the speakers. But take heed: They're all out there, and they don't cost $1000 apiece. What spec matters most to you?

Top Android One phones this year

Top Android One phones this year

LG just made a rather startling announcement days before IFA. Unlike Samsung, whose first Android Go phone, the Galaxy J2 Core, was repeatedly leaked before it was finally announced, LG’s first Android One phone was almost totally unexpected. With the LG G7 One, another major manufacturer jumps into Google’s revamped program. But what exactly is Android One and what are your best choices in getting one? Puns aside, here are the top picks for the pure Android experience you’ve always wanted but couldn’t get because of the Pixel phones’ price tag.

Motorola One Power is still a thing, full details leaked

Motorola One Power is still a thing, full details leaked

The slight controversy about the not so high-end Moto Z3 and the announced lack of a Z3 Force has practically taken over most of Motorola’s stage. That, however, doesn’t mean that ol’ Moto has forgotten about the Motorola One Power. Even if most probably have. That still seems to be on the table and we’re getting a more complete look at what’s inside. And unless it has some special trick up its sleeve, it’s going to be hard to see how Motorola plans on marketing this handset.

Motorola RAZR could return with foldable screen, suggests patent

Motorola RAZR could return with foldable screen, suggests patent

Motorola has gone through numerous changes and even numerous owners, but throughout its history, perhaps only one phone has remained an icon and an example of its glory days: the RAZR. Even Motorola was acutely aware of this to the point that it attempted to ride on that nostalgia for the slim clamshell to no avail. It doesn’t seem to have given up on the dream of resurrecting the beloved phone and, at least based on a new patent, it might introduce a certain twist. Or rather, a fold.

Motorola P30, an iPhone X copycat, actually looks pretty great

Motorola P30, an iPhone X copycat, actually looks pretty great

When the Motorola P30 was leaked earlier this week, all I could see was the latest Android-laden iPhone X. Even though the Essential Phone PH-1 was the first major smartphone with a notch, Apple put one on their iPhone and sold an outrageous amount of units. Since then, several China-based companies have taken to cloning the iPhone X industrial design as best they could. When you're in a place where making a good, cheaper copy isn't looked down upon, it's rewarded, it makes good business sense to make said copy.
