Moto Z3, X5, G6 details arrive in massive leak dump

Moto Z3, X5, G6 details arrive in massive leak dump

With CES 2018 far behind us, it’s time to look forward to the next big tech event, one that promises to bring a good serving of new smartphones from almost all brands (save for LG, perhaps). Motorola might have one or two to show off in a month’s time, but not before those new models get leaked to death. Droid Life has managed to secure not one, not even two, but three leaks for a total of six phones. And some look too good to be true.

Moto E5 rear fingerprint scanner revealed in leak

Moto E5 rear fingerprint scanner revealed in leak

Fingerprint scanners are so common today that people are in an uproar when they are removed or wrongly placed. There are, after all, only two places for the sensor really: on the bottom front or the back. Three if you count the power button on the side. For years, Motorola has gone with the standard location, putting the fingerprint scanner on under the home button in the front. But based on this latest leak for the Moto E5, it seems to be revamping its design at long last.

Moto Mod slide-out QWERTY keyboard launching later this year

Moto Mod slide-out QWERTY keyboard launching later this year

The modular phone dream is practically dead, but no one seems to have told Motorola. Granted, its vision of modularity is so far removed from that of Google’s Project Ara that it might as well be called a different thing. The good news is that Motorola’s Moto Mod is far from dead and to prove that, it is announcing two crowdfunded and accelerated mods that will finally hit stores sometime this year. And, yes, that includes the QWERTY keyboard.

Motorola, HTC confirm they don’t make older smartphones slower

Motorola, HTC confirm they don’t make older smartphones slower

Unlike Apple, HTC and Motorola say they don't slow down older smartphones. Confirmation follows public outcry over Apple's decision to slow down iPhone models as they -- or, more specifically, their lithium-ion batteries -- age. Despite having a pretty good reason for slowing down the devices, Apple's attempt at mitigating problems caused by li-ion batteries has proven very controversial, and public attention has turned to other smartphone makers.

Motorola mocks Samsung ad that mocked the iPhone X

Motorola mocks Samsung ad that mocked the iPhone X

When Apple finally started shipping the iPhone X, Samsung put out an ad that more or less trolled Apple on how, after 10 years, it still lagged behind some of the innovations Samsung started. It was, in a way, telling iPhone users to “grow up”. Now out of the blue, Motorola is taking a shot at Samsung with a new ad that instead advises users to “up-grade”, ironically with a mid-range Moto Z2 Play.

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.

Moto X4 now available from more US retailers

Moto X4 now available from more US retailers

The Moto X4 is a smartphone with a strange tale to tell. Going beyond its pedigree, it’s release as the US’ first and so far only Android One model may have shown how US consumers might not be that too enthralled by the concept of a mid-range Nexus, especially one that is only available from Google’s Project Fi. Amazon came to the rescue, but it had quite a few strings attached. Now, however, the Moto X4 is finally available widely as a “pure” Moto X4, provided you’re willing to buy retailers instead of carriers.

Best phone camera of 2017 : Seek out PDAF

Today we're going to take a look at what it means to buy a smartphone with a camera "that just takes good pictures."
