    Going back a little over a month now, we've been hearing whispers about Motorola's work towards a new Moto G. From the sound of things, this second-gen model (a Moto G2, perhaps?) would make some big changes, growing to offer a five-inch 720p display – though that could also mean the phone arriving with a noticeably steeper price tag than its predecessor did last year. Motorola's invitation for its September 4 press event makes a new Moto G launch look like a near-certainty, and as we wait for our chance to go hands-on with this hardware ourselves, we've got a new leak to check out, ...

    Last week we took a break from the rumors surrounding Motorola's efforts to deliver a new Moto X, and instead started looking at what might be in the future for some of its more budget-focused models. Some benchmark data sure seemed to point at development work towards a new low-to-mid-range handset with a five-inch 720p display. And while there was no hard evidence linking it to the name, rumors suggested that this might be a new Moto G. As we wait to get the full details on this device, a new rumor attempts to shed a little light on what the launch situation might look like. Reportedly, ...

    Motorola rumors as of late seem to have focused on two devices: the Moto 360, formally launched but not yet available for sale, and the Moto X+1, expected to arrive shortly as the manufacturer's follow-up to last year's Moto X. But what of the other spaces in the company's lineup? Will we see successors to some of its other 2013 models? Well, there's been some talk of new Droids for Verizon, but today we're looking at what might be the next Moto G, upon the discovery of a benchmark listing for Motorola's model XT1063. Unlike the Moto G with its 4.5-inch 720p display, the XT1063 bumps that ...

    Over the past couple months, we've witnessed no shortage of Motorola leaks, though the subject of nearly all of them has been the Moto X+1, the presumptive sequel to last year's Moto X. Despite all we've seen, including a number of hands-on videos, that phone's true nature continues to remain a bit elusive. As we wait for that story to finally come together we've got another Motorola leak to check out, this time seeming to address a lower-tier spot in the company's lineup, with a pic that just might be a new Moto G model. Reportedly the company's model XT 1068, the new Moto G would keep ...

    Motorola is still on a roll when it comes to Android updates, as it's quickly rolled out an Android 4.4.4 update to the Droid family of devices and has now moved on to send out soak test invites for Verizon Moto X and G owners enrolled in the Motorola Feedback Network (MFN). What exactly is new in this Verizon Moto X and G soak test? Let's find out. First and foremost is Android 4.4.4, which just brings a ton of patches and bug fixes over the build currently found on both phones. In the Moto G soak test changelog however, there are a few things that aren't a part of Android 4.4.4 (though ...

    Though there's not much reason to buy the Moto G Google Play edition considering the fact that Motorola's Android skin is incredibly close to stock, the device does indeed receive updates to the latest and greatest version of Android a bit faster than its skinned brethren. The latest of these updates is Android 4.4.4, and though it doesn't bring much atop Android 4.4.3, security fixes are in tow. The Moto G Google Play edition Android 4.4.4 update is now rolling out, so security-paranoid individuals can be at rest now for the most part. In case you need the update now, and nothing can ...

    Regardless of how much you would rather stick to flagship phones, it's really hard to ignore the existence of the Moto G. It's not the hottest phone in the world when it comes to specs, but all that changes when you have a look at its price tag. If its lack of 4G LTE connectivity kept you away from buying one, this is the right time to think again. Motorola has just launched the 4G LTE variant of the Moto G that it announced a couple of weeks ago. For the crazy amount of just $219, you can get your hands on a very decent smartphone that gives a lot of last-year's flagships a run for their ...

    Motorola has come a long way since the days of MOTOBLUR and a casual attitude towards Android updates, and its latest family of smartphones hasn't only offered extremely pared-down, near stock Android experiences, but delivered platform updates with speed rivaling even what we get from straight-up Nexus devices. Today we see the latest proof of just how nimble Motorola has become when it's time for a new update to arrive, as it gets started updating its own phones to Android 4.4.3 just one day after the build saw its official release. Considering how we're still waiting for OTA updates for ...

    If you listened to the Weekly last week, you heard that I was on, so therefore it was awesome. Actually, it’s awesome all the time but it bubbles over when I…never mind. On the weekly last week we took some time to discuss the latest Moto Phone to delve the depths of the smartphone price ocean. The Moto E is the latest low-end smartphone to hit the market that might just be worth looking at. As a matter of fact, two of my day job co-workers independently approached me and asked about the Moto E. I told both of them, “Spend the extra $50 and get the Moto G.” Both of them responded ...

    What exactly qualifies as a "remix?" How deluded do you have to be to believe in all these "Prime" rumors? Why are we so transfixed by the notion of lasers on smartphones, and so easily taken in by a smartphone commercial, if it's shot like a trailer for Inception? We tackle these questions, and the biggest announcement section in the history of the podcast, in episode 096 of the Pocketnow Weekly. No, that's not bragging – it's just an unavoidable symptom of a month packed with unboxings, hands-ons, product launches, and reviews (both forthcoming and already-published). But even in the ...

    Motorola's made a quick stop on the road to crafting the so-called "$50 smartphone," releasing a $129 miniature handset called the Moto E in the process. We went hands-on with the Moto E in New York City earlier this week before showing you what it's camera is made of. Our full review is coming later in the month, but in the interim, we thought we'd put the Moto E up against Motorola's reigning low-cost smartphone, the Moto G. After all, the Moto G isn't just some down-specced Moto X that the company launched and then forgot about. In terms of sales, it's the most successful smartphone in ...

    The Moto G LTE, and the brand new Moto E, were not the only two phones announced yesterday by Motorola. In case you missed those, you can catch up on everything, including hands-ons and camera samples. In Mexico, the two new devices were accompanied by a third one. Not a new device per se, but one that addresses a particular chunk of the market: those who want a Moto G Ferrari Edition. Expect the same internals as your regular Moto G: 720p screen, Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7, Adreno 305 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 5MP camera, and the rest. However, the changes are on the ...

    Just in case the Moto E just isn't your thing, and you'd rather have a Moto G instead, the rumored LTE-capable Moto G has also been made official by Motorola. Motorola is working to spread the device to more than 40 countries over more than 80 carriers in just a few weeks, as it tries to capture the attention of third-world countries.

We will bring you more as more information becomes available to ...

    One of the worst issues on Motorola's budget Moto G is a lack of LTE connectivity. Though it justifies it as a cost-cutting measure, it seems Motorola continues to receive angry communications from customers, and now they have possibly gone so far as to make a model of the Moto G compatible with LTE networks. By clicking through to the Moto G's Amazon listing, and then "__ new from $__," you will see a page showing "Universal LTE" variants in both black and white color variations. Both Amazon links are dead at the time of writing, though the links are still present. "Universal LTE" makes ...
