    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 ...

    If you've seen our coverage so far of the new Moto X, then you know that it's quite a leap over the original Moto X in terms of specs. While the general premise is the same – a snappy phone that does what you'd like without a hitch, while also making life just a little bit easier to bear – the specs have certainly improved. Let's check it all out in our spec comparison between the new Moto X vs Moto X, right down below. Motorola has gone all-out here, letting the new Moto X best the old one in almost every single category on our chart. The screen is more pixel dense on the new Moto X, ...

    When the Moto X came out last year, many shamed it for not featuring high-end specs like the other flagships in town. While phones like the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 were rocking quad-core Snapdragon 600 processors, the Moto X was using an X8 Mobile Computing System based off of a dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro. You'd think it'd be the same story here, when we round up the new Moto X specs, but these results are actually remarkably surprising – the next-gen Moto X features high-end internals about on par with close competition like the HTC One M8, so we're excited to see where the ...

    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 ...

    This whirlwind IFA 2014 week is continuing today with another bombshell, this time from Motorola. The company has just gone official with the new Moto X, its stylish successor to last year's well-reviewed Moto X. The device stands for about the same things as its predecessor, but there are a couple crucial changes that may or may not make the phone worth the buy. Let's take a closer look. The new Moto X comes with a 5.2-inch full HD (1920x1080) display, and can be customized to your liking through Motorola's Moto Maker device customization service – which, by the way, now offers genuine ...

    We've been anticipating it for months, ever since Google announced an early preview of the Android Wear SDK, and it's now finally here. In a matter of mere hours (perhaps less, if you can convince Best Buy to sell it to you early), you'll be able to pick yourself up a brand new Motorola Moto 360. As it turns out, much of the speculation and many of the leaks about the Moto 360 were spot on. The modern-day timepiece offers up a detachable leather band, though you may not want to remove the one that comes with it – it's custom-built with genuine Horween leather specifically for the watch. ...

    The Motorola event did not just feature the Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360. There were a couple of more surprises in store. In addition to the triple crown of the Moto event, Motorola also rolled out the Moto Power Pack Micro and the Moto Hint (the latter pictured above encased). Our thoughts on Motorola's new accessories are right below. The Moto Hint was the wearable accessory hinted (no pun intended) in the cover of the invitation. This tiny Bluetooth headset is designed to work in concert with the Moto X as a premium add-on. The Hint fits in your ear very precisely with a number of ...

    “Where's my Moto X+1 at? Is this September 4, or is it not? Wasn't Motorola supposed to be elbowing-in on IFA's spotlight today with some new hardware?” Yes, yes, you're not far off there. Last month, the company started inviting the press to a September 4 event in Chicago, with some subtlety-be-damned hints that we'd be seeing the launch of the rumored Moto X+1 and the second-gen Moto G, possibly learning the start-of-sales details for the Moto 360 Android Wear smartwatch, and maybe even getting news about a new earpiece accessory of some kind. But with the day now upon us, the truth ...

    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 ...

    Motorola's got a lot in its pipeline right now. We're expecting new Moto X and Moto G models later this week, and rumors have been wild about the possibility of Motorola hardware forming the basis for Google's next Nexus phone, as well as maybe some of the early Android Silver lineup. While these devices have captured much of our Motorola attention, we've also heard a little about Verizon maybe getting some new Droid-series handsets. Now that's feeling like an increasingly likely outcome, as the long-dormant DroidLanding Twitter account springs back to life. You may recall we saw the ...

    It's happening. One of the best phones of 2013 is getting a refresh, and the whole tech world seems quite excited about it. With last year's Moto X, Motorola brought thinking that was way different than many of the other OEMs out there – it proved that phones didn't have to have top-tier specs and a boatload of software features in order to shine. It proved that a great phone doesn't have to look great on paper, so we're naturally looking forward to the successor to that product. The new Moto X (or perhaps the Moto X+1, as it may be called) is only a few days away, so we decided to ...

    Motorola's upcoming product announcements are starting to feel like they're a done deal already. What hasn't been nearly confirmed by Motorola itself through some not-too-subtle-at-all invite imagery, we've been piecing together ourselves thanks to no shortage of rumors and leaks. Those leaks have really been stepping things up in recent days, helping to answer some of our outstanding questions about this hardware. But this morning we switch gears from hardware details to pricing info, spotting a couple of these Moto handsets revealing their worth to India's Zauba import database. This ...

    What a better way to start September off than with a juicy leak of the soon-to-be-unveiled successor to the Moto X. Today a supposed Moto X+1 video leak has hit the web, and it lines up with everything we've seen before – and a lot of what we're expecting to see – though there are still questions being asked. The leak comes to us from TK Tech News, which has been hit-or-miss but relatively accurate with previous Motorola leaks (like the one where the Moto Luge was brought to light). The leak itself unfortunately doesn't tell us as much as we'd like, but we do get a few critical bits ...
