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!

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.

A cheaper entry to Project Fi

The Moto X4 Android One is a great lower-cost entry point for Google's wireless service, but it makes compromises other phones don't... Full review

A mid-range phone done right

Motorola Moto X4

from Android Central
it's tough to find a better overall experience than the Moto X4 today. The best option, if it works for you, is to get the Android One version that has a guaranteed update path. That is, of course, limited to Project Fi — making it an option for a small subset of people... Full review

A Nexus by any other name

Motorola Moto X4

from The Verge
If there’s going to be any phone to pick up the Nexus mantle, the Moto X4 is perhaps the best candidate. It’s a straightforward smartphone with straightforward software that doesn’t cost a fortune. With the exception of the camera performance (which, in theory, could be improved with software updates), it does all of the standard smartphone things well, without any gimmicks that get in the way...

Premium at a non-premium price

Motorola Moto X4

from Android Headlines
The Moto X4 shows all of the strengths of Motorola as a company. Giving us a great, sturdy build, which is what we’ve come to expect from Motorola even before it was sold to Google and then Lenovo. It also provides us with a great software experience. Now, whether or not this holds up after six months or a year is yet to be known, but it’s starting out right... Full review

Packs a punch in its water-resistant, all-glass body

Motorola Moto X4

from Digital Trends
There aren’t a lot of smartphones at this price range that offer IP68 water-resistance. If you’re prone to accidents, this is a solid option that’s affordable. Regardless of what model you choose, you’re getting a stock or near stock Android experience with solid performance... Full review

Dual-rear camera is far from perfect

Motorola Moto G5S Plus

from The Indian Express
Motorola’s Moto G5S Plus joins the growing list of mid-range, budget phones trying to offer dual-rear cameras. The design and display might not have changed, but there are two cameras at the back for those who want portrait style shots. As a general package, Moto G5S Plus has positives like a smooth performance, long battery life... Full review

A fantastic alternative to exceedingly expensive flagships

A blessing and a curse

Motorola Moto Z2 Play

from GSMArena
All things considered, the Moto Z2 Play's fate comes down to fan love for the Moto Mod platform. If you don't plan on exploring the modular concept and searching for specialized add-ons, like a sliding keyboard or a scientific measurement multitool, among other weird plugins that occasionally pop up on crowdfunding platforms, the Moto Z2 Play is pretty much like the next midrange phone...

This is the mid-range phone you want

Motorola Moto G5S Plus

from Talk Android
At $279, you’re getting a phone that’s 90% as capable as devices that cost three times as much. It’s got plenty of internal storage, RAM, and a processor that’s going to be just fine for the next several years, and it’s compatible with all major networks in the US... Full review

When the mid-range provides you with everything needed

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

from LaptopMedia
Moto G5 Plus lived up to our expectations for one of the best models in the middle range. It has nice appearance with metal construction and fingerprint sensor in the front part. The screen resolution is again Full HD but its diagonal is 5.2 inches, which suggests more comfortable operation with one hand, as well as better image detail... Full review

Bought a Moto c plus from Flipkart got a damaged piece twice , they don't have system to repair a new phone at the service station

Motorola Moto C Plus

Lost all my data, contact's n #s. Cricket store said they fixed it. Instead I got slammed and Cricket refused to help. If I wanted help I'd have to get "court order". Will never trust another Google Motorola phone.

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 :\ Less

Really Good for the price!

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
