Motorola one 5G Ace and 2021 Moto G phones make a value play

Motorola one 5G Ace and 2021 Moto G phones make a value play

Motorola today announced four news phones, and each and every one of them fall firmly in the mid-tier. In fact, Motorola is using this as a selling point for all four phones, boasting about the feature sets it has bequeathed such mid-tier phones. Indeed, it seems each phone announced today has at least one marquee feature, be it 5G, stylus support, or even just long battery life.

Moto G Stylus 2021 is the Moto G Pro 2021 to maximize confusion

Moto G Stylus 2021 is the Moto G Pro 2021 to maximize confusion

Gone are the days when Motorola's product lines were straightforward and easy to remember. In its desire to inundate the market with as many smartphones as it could, it launched several variants of a single generation, with some of them getting launched in other markets under a different name. It seems that changing this strategy isn't part of Motorola's resolution and even tipsters have been confused between the 2021 successors of the Moto G Stylus and Moto G Pro.

Moto G Stylus 2021 leak is literally big

Moto G Stylus 2021 leak is literally big

One of the arguments often thrown against using a stylus on a phone is the smaller screen size compared even to the smallest tablets. While smartphones these days are huge compared to the very first iPhones that were used to mock the first Galaxy Note, writing much less drawing on them even with a stick can still be a cramped experience. One solution would be to actually make the phone larger and that seems to be the strategy Motorola will be using for this year's Moto G Stylus successor.

Motorola Android 11 update will come to these phones

Motorola Android 11 update will come to these phones

Except for Samsung, most of the former giants in the mobile industry have now become almost like footnotes in history. Although it hasn't succumbed yet like Nokia, Motorola's boat has been rocked so violently that it's close to collapsing. There seem to be some glimpses of hope coming in 2021, but many owners of its 2020 and older phones are probably more interested in seeing hope for their handsets. Now nearing the end of 2020, Motorola is shedding some light on that topic, revealing the phones that will and won't get Android 11.

Moto G Stylus (2021) briefly pops up on Amazon

Moto G Stylus (2021) briefly pops up on Amazon

It's not that easy to keep track of Motorola's G family, especially when it went beyond numbers and suffixed words to its name. Sure, some like "Power" easily describe the powerful batteries that some models pack but the likes of "Play" and "Plus" are harder to differentiate. And then came the Moto G Stylus earlier this year, bringing along with it a passive stick for note-takers and doodlers. That might have been a relatively successful endeavor because Motorola is apparently following it up with a 2021 upgrade.

Moto G10 “nio” reveals its face in latest leak

Moto G10 “nio” reveals its face in latest leak

Presuming Motorola isn't just giving its fans and industry watchers a red herring, one of its 2021 Moto G models could be its most interesting in recent times. Although it still left some room for doubt and speculation, the company's president teased that the Moto G would soon welcome the first of its kind to offer a "Snapdragon 800-series experience". This phone, codenamed "nio", is shaping up to be a true Motorola flagship and one of the first photos of the phone just added another piece to the puzzle.

Moto G10 could finally be the Motorola flagship we’ve been waiting for

Moto G10 could finally be the Motorola flagship we’ve been waiting for

If the rumors are correct, Motorola's next flagship smartphone might not be able to compete with other early 2021 contenders. That won't mean, however, that it won't be able to top what Motorola has offered so far. If the company's own hints at Qualcomm's recent Snapdragon Summit is to be taken at face value, it could even be Motorola's biggest attempt at a flagship experience yet. Even more surprising, however, is its all but certain confirmation that this phone will actually be part of its Moto G series.

Upcoming phones geared to rattle the entry-level market

Upcoming phones geared to rattle the entry-level market

Smartphones have become an integral part of our life – no doubt they sell like hotcakes and virtually every other week a new phone is released in the market. While smartphones can be crazy pricey on one end of the spectrum, the options for entry-level buyers are also quite broad. The segment is important for all major manufacturers and the prospects of gaining the trust of buyers who want the bare basics from their device are quite high.

Motorola 2021 flagship might have this flagship feature at least

Motorola 2021 flagship might have this flagship feature at least

Although it isn't exactly in the red, Motorola's reputation in the smartphone market isn't exactly as high as it once was. It still holds the hearts of customers in emerging and developing markets, especially with its Moto E and G series, but few probably give it much attention on the high-end spectrum, save for the 2019 Motorola Razr and its 5G refresh. Next year might be no different but Motorola's upcoming "Nio" flagship might at least not be worse than this year's Verizon-exclusive Edge+ in one aspect.

Moto E7 serves up a 48MP camera and a solid battery on a budget

Motorola today revealed the Moto E7, which is the latest in its line of budget devices. Like many of the budget phones Motorola has released throughout the years, the main focus here seems to be on the camera. In fact, Motorola says in its announcement today that smartphone users deserve "an incredible camera system that delivers gorgeous results," regardless of their budget.

Motorola early 2021 flagship might be a 2019 holdover

Motorola early 2021 flagship might be a 2019 holdover

The Motorola that we have today seems to be but a shadow of its former self, even the Motorola that was briefly under Google. Aside from the foldable new Razr, the company rarely makes notable phones these days, preferring to flood the entry-level and mid-range market with a dizzying number of similar-sounding phones. It does still try to make high-end ones, like the Verizon-exclusive Motorola Edge+ pictured above. It will try to make yet another one early next year but, at least based on a rumor, it might not be the premium flagship Motorola fans may have been wishing for.

OnePlus Nord N10 5G is another Moto G moment

OnePlus Nord N10 5G is another Moto G moment

The OnePlus Nord N10 5G is a turning point for the company - and for you, if you buy the device. It is at this point that OnePlus moves beyond a single line of phones - or two lines of phones (regular and budget), or even three (with the Pro line). Now we've got OnePlus, a budget line with Nord, and another pair of phones (N10 5G and N100). What are we to make of this? We've had the device for enough time now that I'm able to start making serious considerations about not only its features and capabilities, but about what it represents for the company - and you, the consumer of OnePlus products.
