    While it may be late enough to get your pitchforks shaking, Google Play edition Moto G users, the Lollipop update is finally here. Yes, stock Lollipop, as vanilla as it can be, is on its way out to phones everywhere as part of this Moto G GPe Lollipop update wave, and we've even got a download link you can use to speed up the process in case the OTA isn't available to you specifically. The software version rolling out is the latest build of Android, version 5.0.1, and it's build number LRX21Z. We should point out that this build is seemingly slightly order than the 22Z build received by ...

    If you purchased a 2014 Moto G then you're probably already using the latest Google has to offer with Android 5.0 Lollipop, as the update landed about a month ago. But what about those early adopters which grabbed the original Moto G model, the original Moto X's younger sibling? Well, Motorola has already sent out an app update preparing the device for the upcoming OS refresh, and, it looks like that Lollipop dessert is on its way. According to Motorola's Indian support page for the phone, the Moto G Lollipop update for the first-gen phone is rolling out already. After telling all users ...

    This year, when Motorola gave us its new Moto G, we found ourselves doing a bit of a double-take with its spec sheet; hadn't we seen most of this before? Because the new five-inch screen and a slightly tweaked camera notwithstanding, the new phone sure looked a hell of a lot like its first-gen predecessor, packing the same Snapdragon 400 SoC, same 1GB of RAM, and same low-capacity storage options. While that made the idea of upgrading a tougher sell, might there not be benefits to having two so-very-similar Moto G handsets? With the hardware having so much in common, surely Motorola would ...

    Motorola is doing a great job (alongside one or two other OEMs) in delivering the latest Android update. The Moto G Android Lollipop update is available as of now for you to download, if you have the latest version of the handset, which is the 2014 variant. According to this report, unlocked Moto G (2014) devices are getting over-the-air update notifications which, if actioned upon, trigger the download of a 386.7MB file, which is nothing else but the official Moto G Android Lollipop update. Since Motorola is keeping things as close to stock as possible (offering a really Nexus-like ...

    Android 5.0 Lollipop is on the way, and we know many of you with those fancy new Moto Xs are just itching to use it on your phone. So instead of being inundated with "ETA please!!!" all day long after the source code for the update drops, Motorola is trying to escape the bombardment by setting up a dedicated Motorola Lollipop update tracker for its most recent phones. Motorola, of course, has been almost-godlike in its delivery of speedy updates to owners of its phones over the course of the last year or so. It brought Android 4.4 KitKat to the original Moto X in an incredibly quick ...

    Last year, Motorola blindsided everyone by creating an entry-level smartphone that was not only surprisingly great but also extremely affordable. Other smartphones like it had surfaced, but definitely not on Android. The Lumia 520 is a perfect example. But very few Android smartphones before the Moto G were both affordable and worth buying. Last week, while all the attention was on IFA in Berlin, Motorola made some not-so-surprising announcements in Chicago where our own Adam Doud was on scene. It announced the new Moto X, Moto G, Moto 360, Moto Hint, and some juice packs. Of those, one ...

    Updated with links to the high-quality, edited version of the podcast. We hope you enjoyed; see you next week! We stayed up all night waiting for an iPhone that (almost) never came. A few days before that, we opined mightily about the smartwatch that's slated to accompany it come early next year – and a day or two before that, we took a quick look at the latest iPhone and Apple Watch competition from the Motorola camp, with the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360. It's smartwatch and smartphone soup over here at Pocketnow and, generous guys that we are, we want to share the experience with ...

    The Moto G last year took the world by storm, and you may not have even noticed. By targeting developing countries with an affordable yet smooth smartphone, Motorola was able to create its best-selling smartphone ever, and it's looking to follow that up in a strong manner with the latest entry to its portfolio of Android devices – the new Moto G. We've gone ahead and unboxed our review unit and given you a first look in the video below. Paying $179 for a smartphone generally means that the OEM won't have much extra dough to spend on a premium box, so the one the new Moto G comes in is ...

    It’s no secret what many were looking forward to when it comes to Motorola’s announcements. Sure, there were tours of the “behind the scenes” stuff at Motorola in downtown Chicago, and yes there were a couple of unexpected accessories that came out of the announcements. But we want to talk about some phones and watches, eh? So let’s get to it. The Moto X One of last year’s absolute hit phones was the Moto X. Appropriately, this year’s hit model will also be the “Moto X”. The Moto X 2nd generation will not sport the “plus one” moniker that has been floating around the ...

    The Moto G was Motorola's best-selling device in company history, and that was for one simple reason: it offered reasonable specs for a reasonable price, and people loved that. But can the new Moto G follow in the footsteps, and fill the shoes of its older brother behemoth? Let's find out in our specs comparison between the new Moto G vs Moto G (the old one). First of all, the screen is bigger on the new G, but that equals a sacrifice in pixel density. At this kind of pixel density, it's possible for the human eye to make out individual pixels if you're close enough to your phone, so that ...

    A lot of you are probably wondering how much power Motorola was able to cram into its new budget midranger, so we decided to compose a list of the new Moto G specs in order to please you. Below is a full list of the specs of the phone, some of which are quite surprising considering the phone's pricing – the camera's quite decent for this price range, and the processor (as we've seen on many midrangers thus far) is no slouch. Combine all of that with Motorola's buttery smooth operating system, and you've got a winner on your hands. In case you haven't already learned about the new Moto G, ...

    Motorola's most popular phone ever was the Moto G, because with that phone, the company proved that cheap hardware doesn't have to equal terrible performance. As evidenced by our review of that product, we were quite fond of it, and some of us wouldn't even mind using it every single day in place of a powerful flagship. Now the Moto G is getting a successor, as the new Moto G looks to improve even further upon last year's canvas. There's a 5-inch HD screen, front-facing speakers with stereo sound, a quad-core processor, and all-day battery life, so this should work just fine as an ...

    Even though we're just a few days away from Motorola's Chicago event, the amount of rumors surrounding the company's future smartphone offerings is still coming strong. The device that's made the most buzz lately is the company's successor to the Moto G. We've spent the last couple of months dubbing it the Moto G2, but it seems that will have to change as of today. We've got some leaked photos of the new Moto G in its retail packaging over at a retail warehouse in India, and if we're calling it just the "new Moto G," that's because the box states that this is just the Moto G. This device ...

    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, ...
