Archive for the ‘Motorola Moto G XT1032’ tag
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.
In addition to the system specific improvements, the firmware update includes the following :
- Camera: Improved camera image quality including better consistency of exposure, more realistic flash coloring, improved photos in low light conditions using front camera.
- Camera: Added the ability to pause video recording with a convenient pause/resume button on the viewfinder.
- Updated Verizon applications: VZ Cloud and Visual Voicemail application (VVM3.)
- Added Isis mobile wallet application for contactless payment for Droid Ultra users on Verizon.
- Fixed Bluetooth connectivity issue
- Enables Motorola Alert Application download
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?
Motorola has officially launched the marketing campaign that says #GoodbyeDumbPhone and ‘Made For Everyone’ all over it. Clearly Motorola has positioned this device as a device that is not only light on your wallet but is tough enough to take the everyday wear and tear.
For that price one does get a Gorilla Glass 3 protected 540*960 pixels display and a 1.2GHz dual core processor paired with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. The addition of microSD expansion upto 32 GB, Android Kitkat 4.4.2 and front facing speakers is pure icing on the cake.
For many, this can mark their entry into the smartphone space and for some it may be the perfect phone for their parents. In any case, there is nothing that comes close to the Moto E when it comes to pure value proposition.
The company is planning to release the Moto E, the phone that would take on the market even beyond the Moto G in terms of pricing. In an even on May 13 in London, the company would be announcing the Moto E. From a design standpoint we can see that the device is even more chunkier than before with bigger and prominent bezels and chin.
The phone would be running on a 1.2GHz dual-core Snapdragon 200 processor with Android KitKat 4.4.2 onboard, a 4.2inch Display and a 5MP fixed focus camera. The front-facing camera has been removed as a cost cutting measure. Interestingly, the phone adds front facing speakers. Would you like to have this phone for around a 100 USD unlocked?
This could be Motorola’s last deal before the closure of the Lenevo deal towards the end of the year. Is this making the company rush and come out with what they feel could work for them, while still under Google? The Moto X was released back in August last year, so it’s highly unlikely that the company would be organizing a flagship event in May.
The Moto G part 2. which is also rumored as the Moto E is expected to be even more pocket friendly compared to the Moto G. Are you excited for this launch?
Motorola is cooking two new versions of the Motorola Moto G which will be called the Moto G LTE and the Moto G Ferrari version.As its name suggests, the Moto G LTE will have LTE connectivity – a feature that’s missing from the original Moto G.
The Moto G in speculation – The Moto G LTE will come with a baseline 16GB memory with the internals of the Moto G that will be strikingly similar. But what’s the buzz about the Ferrari handset? Well we know less about it at the moment but we have Motorola team up with Ferrari to introduce a few handsets in the past. From it’s name though we expect a red variant with a slightly premium build of the Moto G.
We will post an update once the pricing is made available.
