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." You know, the sort of phone that just lets you snap a picture and it won't be blurry. I'm here to tell you that this phone does exist, but that actually snapping a reasonably sharp photo is not quite as simple as just pointing and shooting.

Unlocked Moto X4, sans Android One, still coming to the US

Unlocked Moto X4, sans Android One, still coming to the US

Google just proudly announced that it’s bringing its Android One program to the US, with the recently launched Moto X4 as its first champion. Not everyone, however, might see the point in an Android One phone or, more practically speaking, be willing to sign up for Google’s Project Fi MVNO service just to get their hands on Motorola’s latest mid-range phone. Fortunately for these people, there is a very good chance that Motorola will bring the Moto X4 to the US and bring it unlocked, for that matter.

Moto G4 won’t get Android Oreo despite Motorola promise [UPDATE]

Moto G4 won’t get Android Oreo despite Motorola promise [UPDATE]

We are often told not to make promises we can’t keep. That sage advice apparently doesn’t apply to the grown ups in the business world, where companies have no qualms taking back their honored word. Sometimes, they even do so in a sneaky way in the hopes no one will notice. Unfortunately for Motorola, some people did notice that it quietly tampered with evidence that it said it would upgrade the Moto G4 to Android Oreo, which, as it stands, now seems to be unlikely.

Motorola Gamepad Moto Mod Review: Great for tiny hands

Motorola Gamepad Moto Mod Review: Great for tiny hands

When I use the Gamepad Moto Mod for extended periods of time, my hands cramp. When I place the controller in the hands of a 6-year-old colleague of mine, she's able to use the controller without issue. The Gamepad Moto Mod, made for Motorola Moto Z2 Force (and similar Motorola phones), by Lenovo, works perfect in all other categories. It's just that pesky size situation that's bummed me out thoroughly.
