Moto G7 Plus DxOMark score offers a mixed bag

Moto G7 Plus DxOMark score offers a mixed bag

Motorola is no longer the darling of the mobile community, especially after it was sold to Lenovo. After its Moto Mod phase, the company has failed to put out any noteworthy premium phone. It does, however, continue to churn out acceptable mid-range handsets with nearly pure Android software on top. The latest in that line is the Moto G7 Plus, which sadly wasn't included in the US launch. Now DxOMark's rather late review of the phone could make some fans of the brand wish it weren't the case.

Moto E6 launches today, making E5 the better value

Moto E6 launches today, making E5 the better value

Today we're taking a look at the newest phone from Motorola, the Moto E6. This device rolls with a set of specifications that are a rather good value for the cash. The phone will cost you right around $150 right this minute - so why would we suggest that you attempt to find a better deal? Because Motorola has a better deal in a phone that's nearly identical to the E6, at less than half the cost!

Motorola One Action specs hint at a One Vision doppelganger

Motorola One Action specs hint at a One Vision doppelganger

Motorola isn't completely out of the smartphone race just yet but it seems to be running out of steam. Either that or it's running out of ideas. It recently just announces the One Vision, a somewhat odd phone in light of its previous phones. It isn't stopping there, though, and will soon have a Motorola One Action in the market that, for all intents and purposes, could make you think you have double One Vision.

iPhone XR did best in Q2 while surprise Android brand returns from dead

iPhone XR did best in Q2 while surprise Android brand returns from dead

In the United States in the second quarter of the year 2019 it was the iPhone XR that did best in unit sales, followed soon thereafter by a couple other Apple devices. At the same time, both Apple and Samsung unit sales have slid downward just a bit as two other brands saw relatively significant gains. Both big gainers sell Android phones: Google and Motorola. Motorola saw a 3.3% increase vs this same period one year ago, coming up to an 8.1% share - that's nowhere near the leaders, but it's still big news for a brand that's fallen so far from dominance in the past half-decade.

Moto Z2 Force won’t get Android 9 Pie on most US models

Moto Z2 Force won’t get Android 9 Pie on most US models

Motorola may soon be down for the count. The recently launched Moto Z4 suggests it may be winding down its flagship line, though it does seem to be ramping up the Motorola One brand instead. The biggest evidence that it might be losing its ability to support its phones comes from a recent announcement over at the Lenovo forums. It has just revealed that the Moto Z2 Force won’t be getting its Android 9 Pie update as promised, raising concern whether the company is still committed to the smartphone market, not to mention its customers, at all.

Motorola One Pro may be Moto’s saving grace in 2019

Motorola One Pro may be Moto’s saving grace in 2019

The relatively limited action Motorola's seen in the year 2019 could be saved by a leaked device by the name of Motorola One Pro. This device was leaked (again) today in a set of case images, the likes of which seem quite a bit more fully realized than the average "make an iPhone case 5 seconds after it leaks" sort of business. The Motorola One Pro was previously leaked with the same curved-corner rectangle on its back with four big-lens cameras on its back (and another one up front).

Motorola One Pro could be the Android One phone to beat this year

Motorola One Pro could be the Android One phone to beat this year

Then Moto Z line could very well be on its way out. Not only did the Moto Z4 launch to be a rather mediocre flagship, but it could also be overshadowed by new Motorola One phones. Forget the Motorola One Action, which could be another mid-range handset. At least based on latest 3D renders, the Motorola One Pro could be the most interesting phone to come from the Android One family.

Motorola One Action looks more premium than company’s flagship

Motorola One Action looks more premium than company’s flagship

The Moto Z series was supposed to be Motorola's flagship series, touting its best technologies and features. And yet not only did the Moto Z4 feel like a rehash of the practically deprecated Moto Mods system, it also sported mod-range specs. Those looking for Motorola's best might have to turn to the upcoming Motorola One Strong that at least looks like a phone from 2019. Even better, it runs a pure Android One OS, too.

Moto Z4 has a secret feature if you have a Microsoft Surface Pen

Moto Z4 has a secret feature if you have a Microsoft Surface Pen

When the Moto Z4 launched just two weeks ago, there wasn't much applause for the rather disappointing Motorola "flagship". Aside from the Moto Mods support and the capability to get a 5G connection in the future, the Moto Z4 is pretty much a mid-range phone that fails to reach up to expectations of a 2019 flagships. It might, however, have an unpublicized feature that may make it a little more interesting to a certain class of users: active stylus support.

Moto Z4 may be the last of the Moto Z line, no Force coming

Moto Z4 may be the last of the Moto Z line, no Force coming

Motorola has been pretty silent this year. Even the Moto Z4, which should have been its nominal 2019 flagship, came out quietly, thanks to a premature revelation by Amazon. It's almost as if it didn't want to call attention to the latest Moto Z model, which admittedly doesn't have enough inside to compete with high-end phones. If, however, you were expecting that Motorola was just preparing to make a bigger splash, you might be disappointed to hear that, no, it doesn't have any other Moto Z phone planned this year.

Moto Z4 on Verizon comes with a 5G offer

Moto Z4 on Verizon comes with a 5G offer

Amazon accidentally sold the Moto Z4 so there's really not many surprises to expect from it when it does formally and finally launches officially. That, however, doesn't mean that there will be no treats from those who will buy the phone through other channels. Yes, that refers to carriers who will be throwing in deals to make the Moto Z4 worth your time. Like the one Verizon is offering that practically makes the mid-range device the 5G phone that you can get now rather than later.

Moto Z4 briefly pops up on Amazon, shipping to some customers

Moto Z4 briefly pops up on Amazon, shipping to some customers

Almost two weeks ago, Motorola finally announced the much-leaked Motorola One Vision. Having specs higher than any other Motorola phone so far, the One Vision's existence fanned the flames of the Moto Z line's upcoming retirement. The company has so far been quiet but Amazon, fortunately, broke that silence by briefly selling the Moto Z4. Whether it is the last of its kind, however, is something only Motorola itself could answer.
