Motorola disses Apple and other phone makers in new Moto Mod ads


Motorola today released two new video ads that feature
Apple’s iPhone 8 Plus, alongside the Moto Z2 smartphone and some Moto Mods. In these ads –
embedded below – Motorola touts the superiority of its Z2, as “your
phone” (including the iPhone 8) can’t “get loud” and can’t turn
into a projector. Of course, the Moto Z2 can’t do that by itself, either, as it
does it with the help of Moto Mods – including the recently released Moto Mod
Speaker with Amazon Alexa, and the Moto Insta-share Projector.  

 

Furthermore, Motorola doesn’t appear to be impressed with
iPhone 8 Plus’ Portrait …

Verizon updates the Moto Z2 Force to support Gigabit Class LTE speeds

Owners of the Verizon version of the Moto Z2 Force should expect a notification about an update to come across the screen at any time. This is a pretty important update that will allow the device to support Big Red’s upcoming Gigabit Class LTE service. A couple of months ago, Verizon tallied a 1.07 Gbps speed in a lab using Qualcomm’s X20 LTE modem chip.  Don’t expect such a high speed from the Moto Z2 Force since the latter employs the less powerful X16 modem. And the phone won’t be used inside the perfect conditions found inside a lab.

The software version of the update is NDX26.183-15 …
