Motorola currently makes Android smartphones with their own Blur UI. Thier DROID series of smartphones, which launched in October 2009 has become very popular.

    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 ...

    The new Moto X will be going official this week, but we're all still thirsty for information regarding the device. One thing we've thought was almost certain since the leak train started rolling in early April was the name: in one of the first leaks of the phone, the name "Moto X+1" was dropped, and in subsequent leaks it came up over and over again. Today, though, we're hearing new information, as the name may not be Moto X+1 at all. According to sources of Phandroid at Verizon, the company's internal computer system shows the device simply as "The new Moto X." This isn't all that ...

    The Moto X, as modest and bland as it appeared on paper, was, by and large, one of the most impressive smartphones of 2013. Unlike most new phones, I could recommend it to buyers without a sliver of doubt. While its camera wasn't all that great and the specs were far from the best, it was an incredibly solid, well-rounded smartphone with lots of lightweight value adds in the software. This came as a surprise to most when the Moto X was finally revealed. The months leading up to its announcement, the so-called X Phone (or XFON) was rumored to come with all the best specifications possible ...

    When Motorola's Moto X+1 finally launches – which all present evidence is pointing towards happening next week, we're hoping to get confirmation of a bunch of new custom backplate options. Already, Motorola's given us a rainbow of colors and a handful of wooden finishes to choose from for the Moto X, and right from the start of X+1 rumors, we've been hearing about the phone picking up some additional materials. Namely, we could be looking at leather options, including a choice of colors, and just last week we spotted some retailer evidence that seemed to support the idea of this new ...

    Who's ready for a little Funkausstellung? We're about a week away from the start of IFA 2014, where mobile device manufacturers from all around the world will descend on Berlin to show off their newest products. The F in IFA –Funkausstellung– may translate as “radio show,” but the expo has evolved far beyond its early audio roots to feature the very latest in smartphones, tablets, and wearables. The Pocketnow team will be on the ground in Germany to share with you everything IFA 2014 has to deliver (or at least, everything worth seeing) but before we send our boys abroad, we wanted ...

    Earlier this week, rumors about Google's follow-up to the Nexus 5 took a turn. We had already been talking about the idea of Motorola manufacturing this hardware, and after rumors bounced around the theory that we could be looking at a 5.9-inch phablet-sized handset, they settled back at a slightly more mainstream 5.2-inch screen size. But all of a sudden, it looked like we might not be getting the Nexus 6 we assumed would we be on the menu, and instead the phone would arrive as the Nexus X – a name we'd been tossing around a year prior in the lead-up to the release of the Moto X. Today ...
