Motorola just announced the Moto G, a solid phone with a rock-bottom price

Before Motorola announced the Moto X, many of us thought the phone would be sold for an affordable, off-contract price. That wasn't to be, but Moto does have a new handset on its way that blends respectable specs with a rock-bottom, budget price tag. Meet the Moto X's baby brother, the Moto G.  Read More

Motorola's Project Ara imagines a customizable future for smartphones, with hardware consi...

An interesting concept for a modular smartphone blew up online in September, with Dave Hakkens revealing his idea for Phonebloks. It turns out that Hakkens wasn't the only one to be imagining a brave new future for smartphones, with Motorola announcing it has been working on a similar concept for the past year. Could Motorola Ara actually happen or is it still, despite Google's enviable and practically unlimited resources, a nice idea that is unlikely ever to become reality?  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

One of the suggested design themes for the Moto X

Earlier this month, Motorola introduced the Moto X, the company's first smartphone designed and delivered as a Google subsidiary (see my full Moto X review here). From the beginning of its marketing push for the new phone in July, Motorola has touted the Moto X as the first customizable smartphone. This week, Gizmag was given special access to create our own Moto X through the beta version of Moto Maker, Motorola's online software that will allow consumers to order, design and customize their own look for the phone.  Read More

The Moto Skip, assuming it reappears on Motorola's website, will let you unlock your Moto ...

A passcode or pattern lock is a great way to keep your phone secure, but they can be a bit of a hassle. Motorola Skip is a new accessory that uses NFC to bypass the pesky part of securing your phone.  Read More

Right before the holidays, it seems like there's a major new smartphone or tablet announced every other day. We aren't quite there yet this year, but we must be getting close. LG's G2 and Motorola's Moto X, both announced in the last couple of weeks, are significant Android phones that show their significance in very different ways. Let's compare their specs and features, and see if we can help you find which is better for you.  Read More
