New Motorola One Action's ultra-wide-angle camera is out to kill vertical video

The new Motorola One Action is official as of today, though it's leaked a few times in the last couple months. And even though we've seen specs and other details before, the phone still managed to hold onto one secret: that ultra-wide-angle "Action Cam" has been rotated to let you capture landscape videos/photos while the phone is held in portrait. Prices start at €259 with availability in some markets (read: not the US) beginning today.

Top-end Motorola One Action with 21:9 display could cost just $300

We've been tracking developments with Motorola's Android One phones in the pipeline. One of them is the Motorola One Action, a phone with a 21:9 full HD display with "hole-punched" selfie camera, three rear cameras — including a wide-angle "Action Cam" — a mid-range Samsung Exynos processor, and various memory configurations. We now have better views of the device and our first idea at how much an Action might cost.

The Moto Z3 Play drops to $290, its lowest price ever ($210 off)

If you're looking for an affordable and reliable phone that offers an unaltered Android experience, the Moto Z3 Play is an option worth considering. The device was selling for $500 when it launched last year, which was quite expensive for a mid-range device. However, the handset is now a lot more interesting as its price has hit an all-time low of just $290.

Moto E6 launches in the US and Canada, but struggles to justify the $50 price hike

Motorola has traditionally served the low-end smartphone market well, but its value proposition isn't what it used to be. To make matters worse, the latest in the Moto E series comes with an unusually high price tag. The company launched the Moto E6 for $150 today, although it's hardly much of an upgrade over the Moto E5.

The best cheap summer backup phones: Relax with a phone you can afford to lose

Summertime is full of such potentially phone-ruining events, so if you're worried about the safety of your thousand-dollar pocket computer, consider grabbing one of these cheapo alternatives as a backup.

T-Mobile's new REVVLRY phones are basically just rebranded Moto G7s

T-Mobile has been pushing its own-brand budget smartphones under the REVVL banner for a couple of years now. In the process, the series has shuffled between ODMs going through the REVVL, REVVL Plus, the REVVL T1 tablet, and REVVL 2. For its third generation of phones, the carrier has seemingly decided to partner with a very mainstream manufacturer to deliver on the all-new REVVLRY and REVVLRY+.

The best phones for LineageOS

The vast majority of Android device buyers don't know or care what a custom ROM is. There's nothing wrong with that—a phone or tablet's stock ROM will be enough for 99.9% of potential users. But for the 0.1% that like to tinker, the development community surrounding a given device can drastically impact the value. Your purchase can become a much better deal if there is a wealth of custom ROM options available, extending its lifespan for possibly years (or roughly a decade, in the case of the HTC HD2).

Motorola cancels Android 9 Pie update for Z2 Force on Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T

Motorola said last year that it would update The Moto Z2 Force to Android Pie, along with a raft of newer phones. The Z2 Force was the last flagship phone from the company to launch on all major carriers, but Motorola isn't updating most of those. A Moto rep has now confirmed that it will only release Pie for the Verizon edition because it needs Pie for 5G Moto Mod support. Everyone else is out of luck.
