Moto X4 (Android One edition) review: This is not the Moto X you're looking for

Motorola had hit a rough patch when Google came calling back in 2011. It took some time to clear out the queue of sub-standard devices, but the first true Google-backed Motorola effort came in 2013 with the launch of the Moto X. This device broke new ground with clever software features like Moto Display (called Active Display at the time) and a customizable design. Motorola made a few more Moto X phones, all of which were excellent devices. Lenovo didn't keep the Moto X going when it took over from Google, preferring to sell devices like the modular Moto Z.

Here we are, two years after the last Moto X launched, and there's another phone that calls itself "Moto X." This is the Moto X4, a device that comes with the added distinction of being the first Android One phone in the US.

Amazon's newest Prime Exclusive phone is the Moto X4 for $329

The Moto X4 is Motorola's latest kind-of-budget phone, which despite the name, bears no resemblance to the Moto X of past years. It's availability in the United States is somewhat limited, with Motorola saying it will sell the phone unlocked on its website, and Project Fi offering an Android One version. In a few hours, there will be another way to buy the X4 - from Amazon.

Motorola releases kernel source code for Moto G5S

'Quantity over quality' must be Motorola's new motto, because the Moto G5S and G5S Plus are the 11th and 12th phones the company has released this year. The G5S is yet another budget phone from Moto, a device that blurs the lines between mid-range and flagship. You can read our review to learn more (we tried out the Plus, but the devices are very similar), but it comes out as a weird product that doesn't make much sense alongside the existing lineup.

[Deal Alert] Verizon Moto Z2 Force is $456 ($300 off) with free Projector Moto Mod at Best Buy

Lenovo's introduced a bunch of new models to the Moto brand since it acquired Motorola, and one of those is the Moto Z2 Force. The Z2 Force is basically Motorola's flagship, and in our review, we found that while it was incredibly quick and took nice pictures, it was just too expensive. But now, Best Buy is offering up the Verizon Z2 Force for a stunningly low $456 with a free Insta-Share Projector Moto Mod.

Moto X4 for Project Fi delayed until later this month

Google and Motorola announced a big step for Project Fi a few weeks ago. The new Moto X4 will be the first "Android One" device in the US, as well as the first non-Google device on Project Fi. It's just not either of those things quite yet. The phone was supposed to be shipping around now, but customers are being notified of a delay of several weeks.

Moto G5S Plus review: Steadily advancing on flagship territory, but it's not clear why

It's been a few years since the Motorola that we knew and loved was replaced by what I like to call Lenovorola. Gone are the quick updates, Moto Maker, and a lot of other things that made Motorola great; instead, we now have a ton of different models, super slow (or potentially nonexistent) updates, and strange-looking camera bumps.

Motorola's been churning out a lot of source code lately, and the newest one is for the Moto X Force (kinzie) on Android 7.0 Nougat. Those of you in the US might know this phone as the Verizon DROID Turbo 2, but it's known internationally as the Force.

Moto X Pure Edition finally gets Android 7.0 Nougat update in US after a year of zero updates

Ah, Motorola. You were once one of the most enthusiast-friendly OEMs, yet you've now sunken down to a level deeper than possibly any other major phone manufacturer in this regard. Just a few years ago, your Moto X-series of phones were the absolute best phones on the market with updates: the Moto X (2013) beat the Nexus 4 out to 4.4 KitKat, and the Moto X (2014) did the same to the Nexus 5 with 5.0 Lollipop. These updates were rolled out mere days after Google officially launched them. However, it took over a year to update 2015's Moto X Pure Edition, the company's flagship at the time, to the now-dated Android 7.0 Nougat.

Motorola publishes Android 7.1.1 kernel source code for Moto Z Play

Motorola isn't the best at updating its devices these days. Custom ROMs can often be helpful for devices without speedy official updates, but the lack of a recent kernel source code can make ROMs less stable/functional. Thankfully Motorola has released the kernel code for the original Moto Z Play's Android 7.1.1 update.
