Motorola commits to updating the Edge+ to Android 12 like it should have in the first place

Motorola has expanded the software promise for its latest Edge+ flagship phone. In a statement provided to Droid Life, the company has committed to providing "at least two Android OS upgrades" for the $1,000 phone. (You might have expected that to be a given when you drop a grand, but welcome to Motorola.) Given that it ships with Android 10, that means Motorola has now committed to updating the Edge+ to Android 12 someday.

Motorola is finally rolling out Android 10 to the Moto G7

Lenovo-owned Motorola used to be king of the budget and mid-range Android handsets, but Nokia phones have overtaken them in recent year, in no small part due to HMD Global's commitment to fast Android updates on even its cheapest phones. The Moto G7 came out a little over a year ago and wasn't exactly the finest entry in the series. It's now finally getting its Android 10 update, at least.

Motorola's $1,500 Razr is only now getting Android 10

Motorola used to be almost unrivaled for quick updates while under Google's guardianship, but that hasn't been true for many years now. These days, it usually provides just one update, but that would have been a bit unreasonable for a $1,500 device. The company today announced that its Razr foldable phone is getting the Android 10 update starting today, with a second Android 11 update also confirmed down the line.

Buy a Moto razr and get a second one free, because one of them will probably work

When it comes to flip phones with folding displays, the Galaxy Z Flip might be a snazzy little number, but some people still prefer the Moto razr. Sure, it has its shortfalls, but if you're all about the form factor above everything else, then you probably might want to grab two of them for the price of one while supplies last at Motorola.

The five most repairable Android smartphones you can buy

A broken smartphone is a reality none of us really want to confront. Is it fixable? Where do I take it to get it repaired? What am I going to use in the meantime? Do I need a new phone? Can I afford any of this? The questions that a smashed handset inevitably raise aren't fun, and breaking a phone in the current situation around the world right now is almost unthinkable. We're relying on them more than ever, and the availability of repair services is at an all-time low as most shops and electronics stores globally remain shut.

All that said, for many of us, it's a fact of life that our phones are going to need repairs at some point.

Moto G Power and G Stylus review: Getting back to the basics, sort of

When the very first Moto G landed way back in 2013, it was a phone that undeniably turned head. Not because it was big, fast, or chocked full of incredible and innovative features, but because it was cheap. The G series has come a long way in the intervening seven years (yep, it's really been a while), but over that period, we kind of felt the G lost its way more than once, getting too expensive or missing out on key budget phone trends. Thankfully, these new G series phones correct some of Moto's missteps—they're legitimately good values. Last year's Moto G series was pretty plainly overpriced, so it's good to see Moto has readjusted its philosophy in 2020 with the G Power and S Stylus.

Imagine how much it must suck to be Motorola right now

Imagine being Motorola right now.

You haven’t launched a proper flagship phone in years. A long time ago, you captured the world’s attention, but those glory days are behind you. Your knees ache, your back aches, your Mods ache. You’re just not the vibrant, nimble smartphone manufacturer that you used to be. These days you get by selling serviceable entry level and mid-range phones.

But wouldn’t it be great to try again? To shoot for the moon and land among the stars? So, you get to work. You know it can take a couple years to get a new kind of smartphone off the ground.

Motorola's $1,000 Edge+ is coming exclusively to Verizon next month

Motorola has slowly dropped out of the flagship phone race in recent years, but it's coming roaring back in 2020 with the Edge+. It's got all the latest hardware including a Snapdragon 865, millimeter wave 5G, and a gaggle of camera sensors. It also has the curviest curved OLED panel you've ever seen. You'll only be able to see it on Verizon, though. Motorola has a cheaper version of this device called simply the Motorola Edge, but we know much less about its release plans here.
