Motorola's upcoming Moto G refresh has leaked a few times lately, and the latest image is the best yet. Previous leaks have been grainy spy shots, but @evleaks just posted what appears to be a press render of the new Moto G. Again, it's sporting that odd square fingerprint sensor. Read More
Everything old is new again. If you'll recall, Motorola (before it was gobbled up by Google, then Lenovo) was one of the first Android manufacturers to use a fingerprint sensor. Oddly, they've now become one of the last hold-outs after more reliable technology has made mobile sensors much better. According to a few spy shots of what looks like a new Moto G redesign posted at NowhereElse.fr, Motorola thinks it's just about time to bring them back. Read More
Android aficionados in India have a few more options today when it comes time to get a new device, courtesy of Motorola. As promised, the Moto X Force is on sale, and the previously available Moto G variants have come to Amazon India. Read More
Motorola is just about done rolling out Marshmallow updates to its recent phones, and that includes one you might not be very familiar with. The Moto G Turbo Edition in India is getting a 6.0 update right now. This phone is also sold in Mexico, but today's update is for the Indian version.
Years after Chinese electronics giant Lenovo purchased Motorola, the lines between the two companies are starting to blur. The status of Motorola as its "Moto" lineup becomes a sub-brand of Lenovo is still somewhat up in the air. According to a post from Digital Trends, the Moto line will be positioned as a more high-end option, as opposed to serving a wide array of market segments as it does now. Read More
Black Friday is over, but there are still a ton of great deals waiting for bargain hunters on the web. Amazon has a particularly good sale for anyone who wants a great Motorola phone on the cheap. The international GSM version of the second-gen Moto G (that's the 2014 model) is now $99.99 on Amazon's US site, an impressive $80 off the retail price. It's an excellent deal for someone who needs a solid device without the high price (or, notably, the LTE radio) of more robust models.
Note that this is the global GSM model, not the US GSM version, so while it will work in most countries around the world, it will have poor reception on T-Mobile in the States. Read More
The original Moto G started getting its official update to Android 5.1 in July. But those were unlocked units and we all know how operators like to test, re-test, delay, and re-delay OTA updates, so odds were that you would have to wait for months before getting it on your device if it wasn't unlocked.
Well, the odds and the stars have aligned in your favor if you're on the Verizon XT1028 version of the Moto G because Lollipop 5.1 is finally coming to you. The rollout started a few days ago so you may have already seen the notification, otherwise you should head into your phone's settings and manually check. Read More
The hybrid cellular-WiFi carrier Republic Wireless is launching a new budget device this month, and it's a good one. The 3rd generation Moto G will be available for purchase from Republic on October 27th in both 8GB and 16GB versions. The pricing isn't as competitive as past Republic Wireless phones have been, but the Moto G is a crazy-good deal already. Read More
