Gizmag takes one last look at the Moto X: a groundbreaking phone we may or may not see mor...

This week Google shocked the tech world by announcing that it was selling Motorola Mobility to Lenovo. While that raises lots of questions about future Motorola phones, it doesn't take anything away from the company's current flagship, made entirely under Google ownership. Read on, as we use our first hands-on with the wood-backed version as an excuse to revisit the terrific Moto X.  Read More

The Nexus 5 and Galaxy S4

While there is no formal ceremony or rite of passage, it seems clear to me that 2013 was the year that Android finally came of age as a fully mature mobile OS to power the world. Rather than a fancy coronation ceremony, let's take a look back at the highlights of the past 12 months in Android.  Read More

The Moto X out-curves the Nexus 5

Two of the most buzzed-about, speculated-upon and long awaited Android phones are finally here: the Nexus 5 from Google and LG, and the Moto X from Google-owned Motorola. Despite being step-siblings of a sort, there are plenty of differences between these phones. Fortunately, I've spent quite a bit of time with both phones and will try to sort out the strong points and weaknesses of each, to make the decision a little easier for such a devoted Android fan as yourself.  Read More

The iPhone 5's display is twice as responsive as those in non-Apple handsets, new benchmar...

Conscious that the world of mobile devices lacks benchmarking tests to measure the responsiveness of touchscreen displays, app-streaming company Agawi has developed the TouchMarks benchmark to measure touchscreen latency. In a company blog post published last Thursday, the company reveals that, according to its tests, Apple's year-old iPhone 5 screen response time is more than twice as fast as the best Android phone tested, the Samsung Galaxy S4. The iPhone 4, released June 2010, was also significantly faster than the non-Apple handsets tested.  Read More

Gizmag compares the specs and features of Apple's iPhone 5c and Motorola's Moto X

Sometimes the rumor mill is a little off the mark. Motorola's Moto X was originally thought to be a high-powered superphone that would make geeks salivate. When the phone actually arrived, though, it brought tame specs and more focus on the user experience. Apple's iPhone 5c was rumored to be an aggressive play at the budget smartphone market. What we actually got there, though, was a phone that was only a little cheaper than Apple's most expensive flagship. Are either of the phones worth taking a look at? Let Gizmag try to help, as we compare the specs and features of the iPhone 5c and Moto X.  Read More

Moto X or Nexus 4? Let Gizmag help you make up your mind

The Moto X is, of course, a Motorola product. But as it's the first Motorola phone designed under Google ownership, many consider it to be an unofficial Google phone. How does it compare to the last official Google phone, the LG Nexus 4? And does the Nexus 4's recent US$100 price drop change anything? Read on, as Gizmag compares the specs and features of the Moto X and Nexus 4.  Read More

Gizmag digs deep, and compares just about every aspect of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and Motoro...

What is a breakthrough smartphone? Does it have the latest and greatest hardware components, along with an eye-popping list of features you've never seen before? Or does it change things in a more subtle and calculated way? Like, say, giving you thoughtful new features that actually change the way you use a smartphone? Let Gizmag try to answer that, as we go hands-on to compare two phones that represent each of those camps, the Motorola Moto X and Samsung Galaxy S4.  Read More

Key features of the Moto X include touchless control and quick camera access via a gesture

Gizmag was recently given early access to Motorola's Moto Maker website to customize our own Moto X, the new smartphone from the Google subsidiary that can be personalized before being assembled and shipped out from a Motorola factory in Fort Worth, Texas. Let's take a look at the results.  Read More

The Moto X can easily become part of the family

It's been a full two weeks since I got Motorola's Moto X home with me and integrated into my daily life. The first few days of my interactions with the 4G smartphone coming to AT&T next week (with other carriers to follow) were covered in my initial Moto X review for Gizmag. Now it's time to share some deeper reflections on this much-hyped device and cover some of the ground that didn't make it into the review.  Read More
