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

I love flagship phones, but I'm always a little concerned when I take one with me, say, kayaking, or to a concert. 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.

Sign up for 2 months of Visible's $40 unlimited data and get a $100 prepaid Mastercard

Verizon-owned carrier Visible recently took the speed limit off of its unlimited data offering all while still charging $40 a month for talk, text, and mobile hotspot service as well. Now, the company is hopping on the Prime Day bandwagon to highlight savings on a couple of its phone. It's also ready to actually give you money if you're willing to try out its network for 2 months — seriously. But there are a couple catches to be aware of...

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+.

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.

[Update: New render] Motorola One Action leaks with triple rear cameras, 21:9 display, and Exynos SoC

It turns out that the One Vision isn't the only phone with a 21:9 display and an Exynos chipset that Motorola is planning to release; the One Action is also in the cards. The two One-branded phones share many similarities, with the Action appearing to be a lower-end version of the Vision.

The Moto Z4 is tragically boring and behind the times

Motorola promised at least three years of Mod compatibility when it announced the first Moto Z phones in 2016, and we're about to go beyond that with the new Moto Z4. Good on Motorola for sticking with it and giving consumers some confidence their Mod purchases would not be in vain. Although, Mods still don't seem like a worthwhile purchase, and even Moto is phoning it in with the Z-series. This is the first Moto Z that doesn't even attempt to be a flagship device—Motorola has essentially merged the Z Play and flagship Z-series. It would be easier if the Moto Z4 were an objectively bad phone, but it isn't.
