You can receive up to $899 in service credit when buying an LG phone, get a Pixel 2 XL for $200 off, or get $50 in service credit with a Moto G6.

Moto Z3 review: An okay 2017 flagship phone in 2018

Motorola is still pumping out successful mid-range and budget phones, but a smash-hit flagship device has eluded it for years. The Moto Z phones with their modular accessories have potential, but consumers aren't running out to buy many $200 projectors or $130 photo printers. If you ignore the Moto Mods, past Moto Z flagships have at least been top-of-the-line phones with uncluttered software and modern specs. That's what makes the new Moto Z3 so perplexing. It's specced like a phone from 2017. Plus, it's exclusive to Verizon.

Moto Face Unlock app hits the Play Store

If you've got a Motorola phone from this year, it already has a Motorola-branded face unlock feature in the settings. Now, there's a companion app in the Play Store for those phones. Thus, Moto can update your pre-loaded face unlock with new features. There aren't any new features in the first Play Store version, though.

The 5G Moto Mod will be an awkward but necessary first step into the era of 5G phones

The race to 5G is on with every carrier promising big rollouts of next-generation networks in the coming year, but what about the phones? The first wave of consumer 5G devices are likely to be Wi-Fi hotspots, but Motorola thinks it has a way to offer the world's first 5G phone with the recently announced 5G Moto Mod. It's a strange device that will require certain compromises, but it's still probably better than the way we transitioned to 4G. Remember the Thunderbolt? Yeah, that's a low bar, but still.

Moto G6 on Project Fi now available in 'blush' color

The Moto G6 went up for pre-order on Project Fi about two months ago, and though we never covered its formal release, it officially went up for sale a month after that. Project Fi now sells the G6 in the 'blush' color, which I'm surprised Motorola didn't call 'rose gold.'

Motorola confirms there won't be any more Moto Z phones launched in 2018

As we all know by now, Motorola isn't doing too well. None of its phones are standing out these days, and the Moto Z3 that debuted yesterday is just an old Moto Z2 that was never launched being used to showcase the not-yet-available 5G Moto Mod. Motorola has now confirmed via Twitter that no more Moto Z phones will be announced for the rest of 2018, which isn't entirely unexpected.

Motorola releases Oreo kernel source code for the 2016 Moto Z Play

Android 8.0 Oreo first arrived on the Brazil Moto Z Play in March of this year, then it started to roll out in the United States two months later. Motorola usually releases the kernel source code for each update around the time it is released, but for whatever reason, the Oreo code hasn't been available until now.

Moto Z3 debuts for Verizon, ready to upgrade with 5G Moto Mod in 2019

Modular smartphone hardware may not have taken the world by storm, but we continue to see companies trying to make it work. While it's always nice to have newcomers like Essential taking a stab at it, the king of modular add-ons is still Motorola. Going back two years now, Moto Mods have offered owners of Z-series devices the chance to augment their phone experiences with everything from cameras with optical zoom to miniature video projectors. Back in June we were introduced to the mid-range Moto Z3 Play and today we get to meet its big brother, the new Moto Z3.

Moto G5S Plus kernel source code for Android 8.1 Oreo is out

All manufacturers are required by the GPL to release the kernel source code whenever there's a change to it, which usually happens when a major update is pushed. The Moto G5S Plus, codenamed 'sanders,' has been waiting for its Oreo update for quite a while now, but with news of a soak test occurring in Brazil and this 8.1 Oreo source code's release, it looks like it may be coming soon.
