It’s no secret that Motorola has been struggling to last in the mobile industry over the past couple of years. Even after Google’s acquisition in 2012, things didn’t change all that much. It was only after the company announced the Moto X followed by the Moto G that the company started seeing significant improvement in sales. The recently launched Moto E has been very crucial in the company’s partially changed fortunes as well, which is showing in its Q2 2014 earnings.
The company’s quarterly earnings report shows that Motorola has done relatively better in Q2 2014 compared to Q1 with over 8.6 million units shipped, an increase of 1.9 million from Q1. While this is nowhere near Samsung or LG’s numbers, it’s a respectable growth nonetheless. The company is already rumored to be working on the next gen Moto G as well as the Moto X+1, so there could be some interesting new devices in the pipeline.
It must be noted that the Moto X wasn’t a crucial factor in Motorola’s changed fortunes as the device was an American exclusive for a long time until the company eventually decided to broaden availability to Asia and Europe.
