Many companies have attempted to bridge the gap between desktop and mobile, and now it looks like Motorola is taking another shot at it. In a new video released for Qualcomm's Snapdragon Summit event, Motorola president Sergio Bunac gave a teaser for what users can expect an upcoming desktop mode to look like — as well as a few more fun tricks Motorola has up its sleeves.
Looking to buy a smartphone for a first-timer old or young? The Moto G7 Play is a lovely choice — easy to use, decent battery life, and cheap as it is. But since we're in Black Friday, of course, it's cheaper. Like, $30 cheaper to be exact.
A new Moto 360 smartwatch powered by Wear OS was released last year, manufactured by eBuyNow instead of Motorola. It was a decent watch, but the original price of $350 was absolutely too much money. Now you can get it for a significantly better price: $129.99.
We don't expect an awful lot from a phone costing less than £100, but Motorola assures us that its latest budget handset will last around 36 hours on a single charge and take photos that aren't terrible with its 48MP main camera. It also boasts what Motorola is calling a water-repellent design — it can apparently withstand "moderate exposure to water such as accidental spills, splashes, or light rain — which is more than can be said for most cheap phones.
Although Motorola has been slow to roll out Android 10 to most of its devices globally, the company is at least keeping developers happy with steady kernel source releases. Over the past few weeks, Motorola has released updated source code packages for most of its phones, accelerating the creation of custom ROMs and recovery partitions.
Big batteries are always in style, and Motorola seems to have taken that to heart with its newest phones. The Moto G 5G and Moto G9 Power both have large capacities, but the G9 Power includes the largest cell that the company has ever included in a device, with claims of lasting for up to 60 hours on a single charge.
It's only been about two months since Motorola announced the Moto G9 Play, but it looks like the successor to that budget device is already on the horizon. New leaks have surfaced that reveal key specs of the upcoming device, including a slightly downgraded battery size, a new hole punch selfie camera, and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
Motorola released two main G-series phones earlier this year, the G Power and G Stylus. The latter option has a built-in passive stylus for drawing and other screen interactions, and now you can buy the phone for just $199.99. That's $100 below the original price, but the phone has been listed at $269.99 almost continuously since August, so this is more like $70 off.
Motorola released its flagship Edge+ phone earlier this year, but it was always a bit weird to have a plus model when a regular model didn't exist. Motorola fixed that with the cheaper Edge a few months later, which has now dropped to $399.99 at Amazon and B&H Photo. The phone was $500 for a short time last month (and again on Prime Day), but it's typically sold for $600.
Motorola launched its second foldable Razr phone recently, and this one is available unlocked rather than only on Verizon. If you decide to head over to the Amazon listing to pick up Moto's little flippy boy, you might notice a strange warning. The phone's "open" shipping configuration can potentially lead to damage during transit, so Moto is opening all the boxes to flip the phone closed. In the process, someone might get fingerprints all over your "new" phone.
