    Our Moto 360 review unit has been in at least three states at this point, and it's finally seeing its turn at our review desk today. We've spent a good amount of time learning the ins and outs of the gorgeous new Android Wear device at this point, so it's time to share what we've found in a full Motorola Moto 360 review video. The hardware is the interesting part on the 360, and that's almost unarguable. Looking at the watch from an exterior perspective, the round display (albeit with the "flat tire" at the bottom) and heavy use of stainless steel and leather are standout features. These, ...

    The time is nearly here for you to be able to get your hands all over Motorola's newest devices and accessories. Moto X 2014 pre-orders, along with the same for the Moto Hint and Motorola Turbo Charger, are now live on Motorola's web portal. First of all, the new Moto X is now available in two forms – the first is an AT&T model, and the second is the "Pure Edition" Motorola representatives confirmed a couple days back. Both are available for $499 from Motorola's online store, though the latter comes SIM-unlocked and with an easily unlockable bootloader. The next item available today ...

    If you can't wait for Motorola to stock up the new Moto X later today on its online store, and are an AT&T customer, you're in luck. The carrier has made pre-orders of the second-generation X available through its online store, but there are a couple catches if you're going to get your Moto X 2014 pre-orders in through this system. The device is available in three flavors – Black Leather, Bamboo, and Black Resin – and customizing the phone through Motorola's Moto Maker is not yet an option. Weirdly enough, AT&T can't quite decide what to call the phone; both Moto X2 (which ...

    One of our favorite devices of last year just got a refresh this year, and your wait to get your hands on one is about to end. The new Moto X is currently being put to its pace in our Pocketnow labs, and so far, it has proven to be a worthy successor to its 2013 iteration. The company has just provided an official date for its preorders to begin, and we hope you're reading this with your wallets ready. Motorola and AT&T have officially announced that the Moto X preorders begin tomorrow, September 16th at noon Eastern, 9AM Pacific. These preorders apply to both the carrier-locked ...

    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 ...

    My LG G Watch arrived on July seventh and got slapped on my wrist just moments later. Since then I've worn it, my Pebble, and the Moto 360. I'm convinced that my days with Pebble (at least in its current incarnation) are behind me. Android Wear is significantly more advanced, easier to use, more intuitive, and all around better looking - especially when referring to the Moto 360. Even still, and after more than one OTA update, Android Wear still needs work. Watch Faces First and foremost, the watch faces that come with the G Watch aren't that great. Sure, they get the job done, but they're ...

    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 ...

    Our Moto 360 review unit is still days away from its official turn at our review desk, but it's already been on quite an epic odyssey. Picked up in Chicago by Adam Doud on his Motorola HQ tour, it was immediately overnighted to our resident Android guy Joe Levi for a proper unboxing and initial setup while Taylor Martin and I were covering the sights and sounds of IFA 2014 in Berlin. Then it was quickly repackaged for a cross-continental journey in time to meet me in Boston, whereupon I immediately pressed it into service for a day of sweet wearable-tech action before using it to answer ...

    Those of you Motorola fans who have been able to see past all the buzz surrounding the Moto 360, the new Moto X and Moto G models, and all the fun little accessories the manufacturer has just announced may have noticed us talking about the possibility of having a new Droid model launch for Verizon. That all really picked up earlier this month when the old DroidLanding Twitter account got back into action, most recently hinting at a Droid with support for Motorola's Turbo Charger. We had already discussed the possibility of a Droid Turbo, a phone that may have been under development as ...

    Seeing one of our favorite phones of 2013 get refreshed instantly piques our interest – especially when the same great features are on-board, and specs have been bumped up to an admirable level. We have a review unit in our labs now, so it's time to finally find out what happens when you put Motorola up against ... itself, in our Moto X 2014 vs Moto X 2013 comparison. In terms of hardware, there's a huge upgrade between the two models. We compared them spec-by-spec in an earlier post on the site, so check that out if you want to know exactly what's different, but upgrades have been ...

    One week ago, Motorola announced its latest Android flagship, the second-gen Moto X. Without reinventing the wheel, it managed to take much of what we loved about the first Moto X, bump up the specs, and offer more custom options – a win all around. Later this month, sales of the smartphone will begin, and just like before, we'll be seeing a good deal of carrier interest. But what if you'd rather not get your new Moto X with a carrier lock, as well as some unwanted software bloat? Motorola's no stranger to selling unlocked versions of its phones, and today we hear that its unlocked 2014 ...

    Back at the start of the month, before we were neck-deep in IFA coverage, followed by Apple's launch event, we picked up on some new activity over at the old DroidLanding Twitter account. In the past, the account would spring to life in the weeks leading up to the arrival of some new Motorola Droid models for Verizon. A couple days back, the account delivered a new message, mentioning fast phone charging being a “big deal.” What are Motorola and Verizon up to here? Well, the key is probably the Motorola Turbo Charger, which the company introduced alongside its latest phones last week. ...

    It feels like there are a million little things users are paying attention to about the new Moto 360 smartwatch. From the circular display to its wireless charging abilities, this is a smartwatch unlike any we've seen hit the market before. So it's hardly surprising that iFixit felt compelled to tear the smartwatch and but its components under the microscope, seeing what makes this wearable tick. What they found are some dense circuit boards and tiny interconnects, sure, but also a few surprises, including a battery that's not as advertised. Motorola's clear in its Moto 360 spec breakdowns ...

    Motorola's smartwatch, the Moto 360, is now listed on the Google Play Store and with various online resellers - though availability and stock is very limited due to the device's insane popularity. Thanks to Motorola, we were lucky enough to get our hands on the watch early and spent a weekend with it. You won't want to miss what we found out! If you're waiting to see if it's for you, here are three things about the Moto 360 that no one else is talking about. Battery expectations You can't judge a device's battery life by only a couple days of use. Stop for a moment and let that sink in. ...

    The Moto 360 may be met with availability issues right now, but we're hoping that'll all clear up soon – and when those problems get sorted out and the dust clears, there'll be an additional retailer stocking the Moto 360: AT&T. The wireless carrier has revealed its plans today to carry the Android Wear-powered timepiece as an accessory. AT&T joins a growing list of Motorola, Google Play, Best Buy, and Verizon Wireless as one of the places you can grab a Moto 360, but because of the supply/demand levels right now (presumably), we don't yet have a date or a price for the version ...
