Moto G4 and G4 Plus review: Still the best budget phone you can buy

Motorola has had a strange couple of years. It was making some interesting, though mediocre phones, then it was acquired by Google. Then, it started making great phones. Before we could truly enjoy the new Motorola, the company was sold off to Chinese mega-firm Lenovo. We all worried what this would mean for Motorola, and now we're seeing the first products from the new-new Moto—the Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus.

Moto Z and Z Force hands-on and first impressions

Motorola under the stewardship of Lenovo is doing something very different this year. The Moto X brand may not be gone, but it's certainly not the company's focus right now. Instead, we have the Moto Z and Moto Z Force. They're thin and they have Moto Mods—snap-on modules like projectors and speakers that make the phones much less thin. The Z is coming to Verizon first as a Droid phone (that's what I have to review), but the device I'm looking at now is very similar to what Motorola will release unlocked later this year.

It's been a while since the last big Android Wear release, so spending hundreds of dollars on a watch that's reaching the end of its life cycle isn't the best idea. But hey, that's what sales are for. There's a particularly good one right now on the 2nd gen Moto 360. Just $159.99 gets you either the men's or women's version of the watch.

Best Buy and B&H Photo are both offering $50 gift cards with the 2016 Moto G and G Plus

The early reactions to Motorola's new generation of hardware have been tepid at best. Even so, if you're one of the people looking forward to the recently-announced US launch for the 2016 version of the Moto G and the new G Plus, Motorola is hoping to sweeten the pot on the already budget-priced phones. Both Best Buy and B&H Photos are offering free $50 gift cards to their respective stores for early buyers.

[Update: Best Buy and Amazon too] [Deal Alert] Moto X Pure discounted to $319.99 (64GB) and $239.99 (16GB) at B&H today, plus free microSD cards with purchase

Motorola is headed into the summer with the Moto Z at the top of the roster, but the 2015 flagship Moto X Pure is still available too. In fact, you might prefer this phone to the new modular devices Motorola is pushing. With that in mind, B&H is looking to get some Moto X Pure stock off its hands with sizable discounts and some free microSD cards.

Motorola's design chief leaves after 12 years at company

Jim Wicks, head of design at Motorola Mobility for the past twelve years (that's serious dedication in the tech biz), has left the company according to Crain's Chicago Business. Wicks' official title - Senior Vice President of Consumer Experience Design - makes it seem clear he likely had substantial roles in approving things like Moto Maker, an initiative that provided Motorola customers an unprecedented level of control over the personalization of the physical look and feel of their smartphones.

According to Crain's, Wicks will be replaced by a long-time Motorola designer who also ran Lenovo's MBG (Mobile Business Group) Design Studio, Ruben Castano.

This history of Motorola video is a must-watch

Whether you're a phone junkie or just a history buff, a recent video by game reviews YouTube channel Lazy Game Reviews is, in my humble opinion, must-watch material. LGR takes us through the history of Motorola from its progenitors in 1921 up to its eventual split and acquisition by Google, then Lenovo. But the winding road from car radios to smartphones is filled with stories of Motorola's great successes (and a few failures more recently) over the past 90-plus years, and I came away with some new tidbits of knowledge in the process.

Verizon has the early exclusive on Motorola/Lenovo's new Moto Z phones, and that means it will also be the first to sell the Moto Mod accessories. Lenovo neglected to announce pricing at the event, but now Verizon's mobile app has spilled the beans... the very expensive beans. That projector attachment will cost a whopping $300.
