An entry-level smartphone with a water-resistant finish and relatively large battery

Motorola Moto E3

from Notebookcheck
Lenovo manages to get the most out of the limited budget even in the entry-level sector. A decent camera, very good battery life, good speaker, solid casing, very satisfactory screen, and low temperatures bring a fresh breeze to the low-cost sector. Normally, compromises have to be made in at least one of these aspects... Full review

Mid-range phone that feels like a flagship

Motorola Moto G5

from PC Advisor
There’s fierce competition in Android’s mid-range market, but the Moto G5 looks like a clear standout. The build quality, and battery all feel like they belong on a much more expensive phone, while the fingerprint gesture controls genuinely improve the Android experience, while making the most of the smaller screen size. And with all that at £169, you just can’t argue with the price... Full review

Ticks most of the boxes

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

from NDTV
The Moto G5 Plus ticks all the right boxes when it comes to pricing, design, performance, and battery life. It comes with a stylish metal body and is the only smartphone that offers a pure Android Nougat at this price level. TurboPower charging is a great feature and the camera is good for casual shots. However, there are a few issues, like the heating problem when GPS is active for an extended amount of time, which made usage difficult for us. The low-light camera performance - typically a problem with most phones in this price category - could've been better as well... Full review

Very competent user experience

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

from The Indian Express
At Rs 16,999, there’s little that the Moto G5 Plus gets wrong. It has a primary camera that impressed with every click. Gaming performance is surprisingly good and consistent. The battery comfortably lasts a day and coupled with Moto’s TurboPower charging, there’s going to be very few reasons to ever run out of juice. The Moto G5 Plus is a solid option for anyone who is looking for an all you do good performer that is excellent value for money... Full review

High quality budget smartphone

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

from Fone Arena
The Moto G5 Plus is a worthy addition to the family. It maintains the high standard set by its predecessors and improves in meaningful ways. Be it the metal construction, the improved camera module or just consistently good performance, there’s a lot to like here... Full review

Though it isn’t the most powerful device, it does the job

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

from Digit
The Moto G5 Plus is more expensive this time, but it also has a vastly improved camera. It produces impressive contrast and dynamic range, taking photos that other phones in its category can't. This is complemented by impressive battery life and dependable performance. If Motorola had added waterproofing to this device, it would have been an absolute knockout... Full review

A multi-faceted smartphone

Motorola Moto Z Play

from LaptopMedia
Moto Z Play is not a high-end smartphone but it definitely sits in the mid-range. This can be clearly seen at first sight when you spot the metal frame and elegant glass back, which attracts fingerprints though. The latter can be escaped if you add a Moto module, be it just a different panel or one with JBL speakers or mini projector. It is namely this option of adding various modules that is the main highlight in the entire Moto Z lineup, and it definitely appealed to us – the way you attach and detach the modules as well as the way they operate...

Competitive edge in pricing and performance

Motorola Moto Z Play

from GSMArena
It is hard not to have mixed feelings for the Moto Z Play and for that matter, most new Moto offers. On the one hand, we're talking the legendary manufacturer (albeit now under Lenovo management) that many people still tend to trust for quality and reliability. Plus, in the new Vanilla Android world, where Google is no longer a distant overseer, looking down on its followers and guiding them, but rather an active market player in the big leagues, Motorola is still a go-to choice for a good AOSP experience...

Trims the flagship phone’s specs for a more affordable asking price

Motorola Moto Z Play

from Recombu
The Moto Z Play is a great affordable mid-range mobile which boasts particularly strong battery life, plus strong media chops and the unique Moto Mods expandability. Of course, Moto Mods are still far from an essential feature, and we’re yet to see if Lenovo will support this modular functionality for the long haul. But even if not, the Moto Z Play should please users with its general all-round appeal... Full review

Surprisingly good screen, affordable

Motorola Moto E3

from TrustedReviews
The Moto E3 isn’t a bad phone, but it’s hamstrung by terrible performance, a frustrating Android experience, and the proposed lack of future software updates. A shame, since it has a decent screen and offers great standby time... Full review
Nothing special compared to what's available on the market with those specs. Better off buying an iphone or Samsung.

since i have gotten this phone, ive had nothing but problems.

Motorola Moto X

This phone doesn't have a block number feature, the backing pops off too easily and its hard to find a decent case for this phone. Ive had two of these phones, one being a replacement and the battery is expanding and it shuts off saying its dead even though its fully charged.

Like I say, I need to have a call or e-mail to figure it out how I can pay all that without income in my life because, I don't have any revenue presently. Maybe you can call be back and we will discuss about this cell phone I don't use and make an arrangement, Talk too you soon & I will bring my phone so you will see the problem but it's just then one problem and they continu to bill me before avertissement so I don't know what to do with that :\

Really Good for the price!

Motorola Moto G

I've been using this phone for less than a year, but so far so good! I have no complaints about anything other than the amount of storage available on this phone. I would buy again

Buyer Beware

This phone has a major design flaw - it won't allow you to disable the Google now launcher or any Google app so if the apps are unstable you are basically screwed. For me it kept launching and simply disabling the app would have fixed this but I didn't have the option - you can't uninstall it. It also doesn't come with a decent music player so you have to download an app (ad-supported or you pay), it doesn't allow you to put it into silent mode, only vibrate or volume unless you want to turn off all sounds including your alarm, it doesn't come with a pre-installed texting app, disabling Moto Actions still does not allow you to turn off the "shake to activate camera" option it only works in turning off the instant flashlight, you can't save pics directly to sim card you have to manually drag and drop them there, and the list goes on. Highly uncustomizable phone and the longer you have it the more of a pain in to a$$ it becomes. The people at Motorola are clearly lacking in common sense to make a phone like this. Only plusses are the camera quality (although it's difficult to zoom and focus), and the battery. DO NOT BUY!

About Motorola

Motorola proved the naysayers wrong and got this whole crazy cell phone business started back in the 1980’s when they produced “The Brick”, a large, um, ‘portable’ cell phone that was short on looks, but worked!

Show more

Shortly thereafter, business really took off when Motorola came out with the StarTac, a sexy flip that was futuristic by anyone’s standards at the time and a huge seller.

Since those early days, Motorola has continued to produce numerous and popular phones, including the extremely successful Razr, a model which ushered in the “thin” fad.

Unfortunately, Motorola has hit hard times during the past couple years with a combination of record losses, an exodus of top CEO’s and ultimately the company being put up for sale.

Motorola is based in Schaumburg, Illinois and was founded in 1928 as the Galvin Manufacturing Corporation.
