[Deal Alert] Motorola discounting Moto X4 to $300 ($100 off), Moto G5S Plus 64GB to $250 ($100 off), and more

Motorola has quite a few discounts going on through its official site. Most of them concern Moto Mods, which nobody really cares about these days, but two new ones have just gone live: $100 off the Moto X4, $100 off the 64GB Moto G5S Plus, and $50 off the 32GB Moto G5S Plus.

Moto G6 and G6 Play pegged for mid-May US availability, FCC details reveal specs for Z3 Play

If you're champing at the bit to know when the Moto G6 and G6 Play will be available, it's looking like mid-May is a good bet — at least in the US. Someone at American retailer Fry's Electronics appeared to pull the trigger a little early by posting the G6 and G6 Play (no G6 Plus) on its website for pre-orders. Those pages have since been pulled down, but we saved them for posterity. There are also leaked specs for the G6 Plus that confirm what we've heard before, as well as FCC filings for the Z3 Play.

TWRP now available for Motorola Moto X4

TWRP is, without a doubt, the most popular custom recovery for Android devices today. Chances are that if you're thinking of a device, there's a TWRP recovery available for it. It hit the Exynos Galaxy S9 and S9+ just last week, and now it's arrived for Motorola's Moto X4.

Motorola is more at risk of becoming irrelevant than ever - can it be saved?

Motorola is in trouble. As it has been, frankly, for much of the past five-plus years. The Lenovo-owned smartphone brand once known for its positively prodigious portfolio hasn't announced a new phone in well over six months. That was the Moto X4, which got a mixed reception and has gone on discount so frequently of late that it seems poor sales are probably a given (granted, it's horrendously overpriced). But the X4 was never really competitive in its segment, and its reason for existence remains something of a mystery to me.

Moto Tab review: Look elsewhere for your tablet needs

The Android tablet market is a proverbial scarce wasteland these days. It has been quite some time since we saw something from Samsung or Asus, two of the last major stalwart players in this space (excluding Amazon, obviously). Tablets are not what they were in years past, though I personally still find having one useful for certain situations, despite Android leaving much to be desired in this aspect.

[Update: Amazon version, too] Oreo update now rolling out to unlocked Moto X4 in non-Android One form

The Android One version of the Moto X4 began receiving its Oreo update a few days before Christmas, but as expected, it took some extra time for Oreo to hit the standard model. A "Senior MotoAgent" on Motorola's (well, now technically Lenovo's) forums announced yesterday that Oreo has begun to roll out to the X4.

[Update: Just on-body detection] Security flaw in Moto G5 Plus Prime Exclusive grants access to phone with the tap of a lockscreen ad

Amazon has been running its Prime Exclusive program for some time now. Essentially, the company partners with phone manufacturers to offer noticeably lower prices on devices in exchange for preloaded Amazon apps and advertisements on the lock screen. However, it appears that these lockscreen ads have led to a security flaw on one Prime Exclusive device, the Moto G5 Plus.

[Update: More photos] Moto G6 family, Moto X5, Moto Z3, and Moto Z3 Play renders and specs leak, revealing larger screens with 18:9 aspect ratios

We just saw a leaked photo of the Moto E5 yesterday, but apparently that wasn't all there is to leak. Droid Life has posted renders and details on six phones: the Moto G6, the Moto G6 Plus, the Moto G6 Play, the Moto X5, the Moto Z3, and the Moto Z3 Play. All of them follow the trend of a higher screen-to-body ratio with an 18:9 display.

Moto E5 image leak reveals rear-mounted fingerprint sensor with Motorola logo on top

Last year's Moto E4 and Moto E4 Plus both received high praises in our reviews. Those phones both sported front-mounted fingerprint sensors, just as Galaxy devices and iPhones did for many years. However, it looks like Lenovorola may be moving the fingerprint sensor to the back for the Moto E5, according to a leaked image.
