The specifications include Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 APQ8084 chipset with 2.7GHz quad-core CPU, Adreno 420 GPU, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of built-in memory. The screen has a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels (likely 5.2” in size).
The benchmark also showcases the Android version as 5.0 “L” meaning that it will indeed launch with the newest version of Android. Does this news get you’ll excited?
So Motorola has just started sending out press invites for an even they have held on September 4 and by the looks of it, it is definitely not the most secretive invite we have ever seen.
We are going to witness the launch of the Moto 360 smartwatch which will be one of the biggest announcements of this year when it comes to wearables. There is also a clear mention of the Moto X+1 and the Moto G2 – the successors to last years Moto X and Moto G. In addition there are hints of a Bluetooth accessory that is going to be announced at the event.
Stay tuned we’ll be bringing to you all the action as and when it happens.
BestBuy has temporarily cut the price to $180. For $180 you’ll get the base 8GB version of the Moto G 4G. This discount is not applicable when opting for home delivery so it is best used when you visit your local bestbuy.

The Nexus 5 is a hot phone. It brings the best stock Android experience for an even attractive off contract price. So for the past 6 months or so we have been hearing on going rumors of which OEM would be making the next Nexus.
A new rumor suggests that there will be a new Nexus this year which will launch somewhere around November. Codenamed Shamu, Motorola is expected to be the one making it. The codename which fits with the sea creature theme that Google has used so far to assign codenames to Nexus devices.
The fact that a device with this codename exists has been reported by the Google Bug tracker tool and backed by Android Police. The Shamu has a 5.9 inch screen on the front – which is the biggest screen a Nexus phone has ever had. Would this interest you? Are you looking for a Nexus Phablet?
What we have today is a leak that points towards a phone in the lower-mid spec range by the looks of it. Reportedly the company’s model XT 1068, the new Moto G would keep the original’s 720p resolution, and may go with another Snapdragon 400 SoC. The upgrade is expected to be in the camera department with an upgrade from the 5 MP version to 8 MP in the newer version.
This version could also have stereo front facing speakers. We are also expecting a successor to the Moto X soon since it was last August when the X was first released. What do you think the G+1 or G2 would bring with it?
Well the official updates will be hitting over the air and if you haven’t gotten a notification on your Droid, we advice you to check for one manually.

- Updated Verizon applications: VZ Cloud and Visual Voicemail application (VVM3.)
- Added Isis mobile wallet application for contactless payment for Droid Ultra users on Verizon.

If you have a Verizon Moto X then even that update is in it’s final rounds, it should start rolling out soon!
The Moto G from Motorola has been it’s best selling device yet, and one of the most popular devices world-wide. Alongwith the Moto E last month, Motorola also announced it’s 4G LTE version of the Moto G.
Motorola has just made the Moto G 4G LTE version available for purchase from it’s official website and it is retailing for $219. There is no real difference except the addition of 4G capable radios inside, internal memory is 8GB but a microSD card slot is available now.
In addition to the awesome hardware that you are getting for $219, Motorola also gives an HTC advantage like service where they shall repair the screen once, if broken. For this price guys, there is nothing we can complaint about!
With their latest entrant Moto E, things do not change, infact Motorola has announced that it will be rolling out the latest Android 4.4.3 KitKat update to the Moto X, Moto G and the Moto E. Moto X customers of T-Mobile shall be getting it first followed by Moto G in the US and Brazil.
The Moto X gets additional camera fixes and improvements for both pictures and videos. The Moto G gets only some of those improvements and the Moto E gets only the stock Android bug fixes.
With it’s Moto E, the company broke barriers by offering a phone that is not only hard to resist , but is literally, made for everyone! It comes in at $129 and is fully loaded to be someones first, second or backup phone.
What You Get :
Let’s glance over the things that are common : Both the phones come with a body that is splashproof and can resist more than a few water splashes without breaking a sweat. The cameras on both the smartphones are 5 MPs, that said it isn’t great by any means, but since people could make do with it on the G, it was okay for Moto to keep the same module on the E.
The display has a slight difference on the outside but on the inside you get a 720p HD display on the G and a qHD 960*540 resolution on the E. There Moto E also losses out on the front-facing cam and the ability to play high end games is reduced due to the less powerful dual-core processor on the E, compared to the quad-core processor on the G.
But then you end up paying much more for those features and not everyone wants to take selfies or play such high end games.
What’s The Catch? :
None. Yes, really! The dual-core processor is more than capable and with KitKat onboard, performance will never be an issue and so will multitasking. Heavy games surely can be installed and played without many hiccups. Battery life has been solid and the Moto E actually scores a home run with it’s expandable storage which isn’t there on the G. (why Moto?!)
Which One Should You Go For? :
For 179 USD you cannot go wrong with the Moto G, it is something that offers quite a lot future-proofing even tough it is not expensive at all, but then the Moto E at 129 USD is a no-brainer, at that price point all you can ask for is a phone that is generations old and can barely run apps smoothly and forget about running the latest version of Android. You get all that a quite a lot more wit exceptional support from Moto. The Moto E is the best value for money device that has ever been made, officially.
Motorola yesterday also announced the Moto G Ferrari Edition that was rumored off, yesterday. On the internals, one can expect the exact same specification as your regular Moto G: 720p screen, Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7, Adreno 305 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 5MP camera.
The changes are on the outside, the phone comes with the Ferrari logo and Kevlar back and some other accessories. The Ferrari version should start retailing around June. Does this make the phone any more interesting, or do you think it’s all a gimmick for the same hardware?
