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.

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G

Moto Z3 Review: Waiting for 5G

The Moto Z3 is a curious device, mostly because its reason for existing hasn’t been released yet. The Z3 will one day be compatible with the admittedly impressive 5G Moto Mod, a detachable accessory that’s the product of a team up between Verizon, Motorola, and Qualcomm. The problem, and what leaves me scratching my head, is that the 5G mod won’t be available until sometime next year, while the Moto Z3 is launching this month as a Verizon exclusive.

Moto Z3 hands-on: Getting ready for 5G

Moto Z3 hands-on: Getting ready for 5G

Earlier today in Chicago, Motorola took the stage to announce a phone that is instantly familiar: the Moto Z3. You've seen this phone before, or at least most of it, as it's almost exactly the same as the Moto Z3 Play, which launched back in June. The major difference between the two is yet to come, but when it arrives next year, it will indeed be quite the differentiator.

Moto Z3 Force isn’t happening this year

Moto Z3 Force isn’t happening this year

At one point in time, it seemed that Motorola, under Lenovo’s ownership, would start playing the numbers game in terms of smartphone models launched each year. That didn’t work out so well and it seems that good ol’ Moto is cutting down its roster for 2018. Unfortunately, it also seems that one that didn’t make the cut is the Moto Z3 Force, which means there won’t be a shatterproof version of the Moto Z3 line this year.

Moto Z3 specs: 5G and Android familiarity

Moto Z3 specs: 5G and Android familiarity

There's a new Android smartphone on the block, and as always our attention turns to the Motorola Moto Z3 specifications to see how it holds up at this point in 2018. Announced today as the first 5G-upgradable smartphone - courtesy of a 5G Moto Mod, rather than the onboard radio - the Moto Z3 straddles a tricky line between the cutting-edge and the familiar.

Moto Z3 5G Moto Mod already looks ridiculous

Moto Z3 5G Moto Mod already looks ridiculous

When the first 4G LTE smartphones were released, we thought they were pretty gosh-darned cool. I'm thinking about the HTC Thunderbolt, for example - a smartphone that looked pretty OK for its day. Industrial design's gotten quite a bit more sleek since then for smartphones - but don't tell that to Motorola, or the designers of the Verizon 5G Moto Mod for the Moto Z3.

Meet Moto Z3, the first 5G phone

Meet Moto Z3, the first 5G phone

Today we're having a peek at the Moto Z3, a smartphone that's been revealed after its alternative edition. But why? Why release an "A" version of a phone after we already know what the "B" version looks like, acts like, and costs? Today it would appear that Motorola waited to release the Motorola Moto Z3 now because it's headed to Verizon exclusively, and it'll be the first smartphone in the world which "you will be able to upgrade to 5G." But you'll need a Moto Mod to do it.
