Motorola expands its budget lineup with the Moto G Fast and Moto E

Motorola released a pair of Moto G phones just a few months ago, and it's already adding some new devices to its budget phone offerings. The Moto G Fast slots in below the Moto G Power at $200, and the new Moto E looks like a capable ultra-budget phone for just $150. You can order both of them unlocked this very day, too.

Motorola Edge+ review, one month later: Improving, but slowly

Motorola was at the forefront of cell phones for decades, but it never quite found its footing in the smartphone era. Early hits like the original Droid and Droid X bring nostalgia, but are also a brutal reminder: Motorola hasn't really made a standout smartphone in almost a decade, unless you count budget phones like the Moto X and G series. Cut to 2020—it's been several years since Motorola even made a flagship phone, and after the disaster that were Moto Mods, it's taking a real risk with the 5G-equipped, Verizon-exclusive Edge+.

Moto G Fast appears in leaked video and it's destined for the US

Motorola has already launched what feels like too many Moto G8 series phones with various names — there's the Moto G8 itself, G Power, G Power Lite, G Stylus, G8 Plus, and G8 Play. It was rumored that the standard Moto G8 would be rebranded as the Moto G Fast for the US, but it appears as though this will be a slightly different phone. Meanwhile, the Moto G Stylus that's already out in the States has been unveiled for Europe as the Moto G Pro. None of this is confusing at all.

Moto’s second foldable Razr could be all about minor upgrades, 5G, and new cameras

Motorola was right on the verge of turning irrelevant in the premium smartphone segment when it decided to bounce back with a modern-day flip phone. The new Moto Razr managed to get people interested by striking a nostalgic chord, even if hardware like a Snapdragon 700-series chip kept power users wanting more. As thoughts turn to a follow-up Razr, a new report talks about possible iterative upgrades for its camera and battery, and an official source helps us narrow down the launch time frame.

Android history: 10 of the most influential and important Android devices

Android's been around quite a while at this point (Google's Android turned 12 last year), and even Android phones have been around well over a decade now. And while obviously hardware like the HTC Hero matters in terms of where the platform got its start, and ones like the original Moto DROID mark its real entry into the marketplace in a big way, we think there are phones (and even A tablet) that are less remembered or less appreciated for their impact on the larger ecosystem.

After, when's the last time you thought of the Galaxy S2, or the HTC One M7?

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.
