Moto X4 leak shows a very shiny mid-ranger

Moto X4 leak shows a very shiny mid-ranger

The Moto Z2 Force is definitely Motorola’s star for this year, but not many will be able to afford it. There might be some who might not care for a shatterproof but easily scratched screen or Moto Mods they may never use anyway. For those users, Motorola might have something prepared this August 24 in the way of the Moto X4. With just days left to spare, a new leak comes out finally showing what the smartphone will look like, glossy black back and all.

Motorola’s planning a thermal self-repairing phone

Motorola’s planning a thermal self-repairing phone

Motorola has a plan to make a self-repairing smartphone covered with shape memory polymer material. Motorola's patent for this idea reveals in part how the device's smart glass would function. Note that we're using the term "smart glass" here for ease in explanation - in reality, Motorola's plan for the device calls for a much more complex piece of material.

Moto Z2 Force said to also have Jelly Scrolling effect

Moto Z2 Force said to also have Jelly Scrolling effect

As expected from a OnePlus flagship, the OnePlus 5 was surrounded by complaints almost immediately after its release, though not enough to knock the latest flagship killer off the top of the list. One of the biggest complaints, and one that the company insists is “all natural”, is the jelly scrolling effect blamed on the upside down orientation of the OnePlus 5’s display. Fortunately for the OnePlus 5, it might not be alone. Or rather, it might have not been the first at all. XDA Daniel Marchena reports that the latest Moto Z2 Force also exhibits this behavior and that it, too, might not be unique in that regard.

Moto X4 leaks: New Android attack on the midrange

Moto X4 leaks: New Android attack on the midrange

All eyes may be on Motorola's Z2 Force Edition, the modular Android smartphone which went up for sale earlier this week, but waiting in the wings is arguably a more interesting phone. While the Z2 Force Edition may have interchangeable Moto Mods in its favor, Motorola has made a name for itself in recent years for its exceedingly affordable X Series of phones. In their favor, while they may cut price, they don't necessarily sacrifice performance or functionality in the process.

Moto Z2 Force scratches but doesn’t bend

Moto Z2 Force scratches but doesn’t bend

Smartphones these days have gotten us spoiled, and it’s not just from their convenience. The ubiquitous Corning Gorilla Glass, which is used on all but the cheapest smartphones, has made us come to expect that our premium, and usually expensive, smartphones won’t scratch so easily. So when Motorola put out its latest shatterproof model, the Moto Z2 Force, many were shocked, even disgusted, at how the phone traded scratchproof for shatterproof. Fortunately, that is the only thing it traded, as JerryRigEverything proved in his usual round of durability tests.

Moto E4 Plus Review : The Never-ending Battery

Moto E4 Plus Review : The Never-ending Battery

The Moto E4 Plus Review we've got on deck today rolls through the basics of its hardware and software and offers judgement on its overall value. While the hardware is decent - especially for this price - it's within the long-lasting battery that this device truly shines. Can a device whose display, camera, and processor would be home in the mid-range two years ago survive as a low-end smartphone here in 2017? How about if it has a 5000mAh battery, 2.5x the size of the battery of the latest iPhone?

Moto E4 Plus available now: here’s where you can buy one

Motorola and Verizon are definitely on a roll. The Moto Z2 Force, which, for the first time, isn’t exclusive to Big Red only, has just been launched along with a new Verizon-exclusive Game Pad Moto Mod. The ASUS ZenFone AR also just made its way to Verizon’s shops. And now the two are again at it, launching the Moto E4 Plus to the masses.

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 is now more affordable, ShatterShield clarified

Motorola’s latest high-end flagship definitely made its presence felt, though not all in good ways. It reminded users that shatterproof does not mean scratchproof. And while it was surprisingly available outside of the usual Verizon exclusivity, it shocked prospective buyers with a price tag that skyrocketed to as much as $850, if you buy it unlocked from Motorola itself. Now Motorola is addressing both concerns and has pulled down the price tag a notch.
