The Lenovo owned Motorola has just announced a new 4G version of the 2014 Moto G running Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. The smartphone is available for purchase immediately in Brazil, although we expect it to arrive in other markets subsequently. The 2014 Moto G was a pretty popular device in Latin Americas, Asia and European markets, so it is likely that Motorola will gradually unveil this new variant in those markets as well. Latin American countries have an ever growing demand for midrange/feature rich smartphones, so it’s...

A new leak has possibly given us our very first look of what appears to be the second gen Moto E. The smartphone is very identical to the predecessor in terms of design, but appears to be missing one of the front facing speakers that we saw on the first gen variant. The earpiece is intact, which might also act as the speaker here, something which Motorola does with the Moto G, Moto X and the Nexus 6 as well. There also seems to be a second microphone on the back, possibly for noise cancellation. There’s not much to tell aside from...

Looking to get the Nexus 6 on T-Mobile? You will be pleased to know that you can now save nearly $50 on the handset thanks to a new coupon code. The T-Mobile listing of the smartphone mentions that customers stand to save $48 on the device with the use of the code NEXUS6DEAL at checkout. This should bring the pricing of the 32 and 64GB models to $601 and $651 respectively, which is decent savings on a flagship product. We don’t see a lot of deals on the Nexus 6, so it makes sense to hop on board when you find something attractive...

With Valentine’s Day still a couple of weeks away, we can expect manufacturers to cash in on the opportunity to offer some discounts on their products. Motorola has already announced its discount promotions on devices like the Moto X and the Moto G. As it has done in the past, the company will offer discounts to users with a promo code. You can attain these promo codes on the 2nd of February between 11AM and 11:59PM (CT). The company will be giving away 200,000 codes throughout the day, so there’s plenty to be had. Using these...

Motorola has just announced three smartphones for the Chinese market, one of them being the often rumored Moto X Pro. The device is essentially a rebranded version of the Nexus 6, sporting the same set of hardware but with some Motorola features like on the Moto X. The Moto G and the Moto X however are both 2014 models which are long overdue in the region. Since all three devices have a very different hardware specs sheet, they won’t hurt each other’s sales. Motorola hasn’t confirmed if the Moto X Pro will be available...

The Nexus 6 was announced some months ago after repeated speculation about Google’s intention to launch a phablet. Subsequent reports however also suggested that Google almost had a fingerprint scanner on the device, but decided against it. A new report now indicates that if Motorola or Google had gone through with the plan, the fingerprint scanner would have been implanted within the dimple on the back of the smartphone, which also houses the Motorola logo. The former CEO of Motorola, Dennis Woodside, explains that the supplier...

The Android 5.0 update schedule for the Moto G has been somewhat erratic. Customers in some regions have already received the update while others are yet to get it. Motorola is trying to change that today, at least to some extent, by rolling out the Android 5.0 update for the 1st gen Moto G in India and the 2nd gen Moto G in India and the U.S. A large number of customers are already seeing the update apparently, so it shouldn’t be long before you have it on your device. It is interesting to note that Motorola is believed to have...

So you have a 2014 Moto X that you bought from Wind Mobile and an Android 5.0 update notification has just popped up. Well, your first instinct would be to instantly press that download button and get your hands on all the Material Design elements that you’ve seen or heard of. However, multiple reports are now mentioning that the smartphone suffers from a boot-looping issue after downloading the update. Boot-looping essentially means that the device gets stuck in the boot up screen and doesn’t go any further. The extent or...
