Motorola Moto Z2 Force and 360 camera mod hands-on

Today is the (ongoing) launch event for the Moto Z2 Force.
The Z2 was accompanied by the unveiling of two more Moto Mods, as well: the 360
Camera Mod which launched today, and the Moto Gamepad, which is said to launch later
this summer. Motorola’s also throwing a full-blown launch party for the Z2
Force later today, but in the mean time we figured we’d break you off with a little
preview of the two products launched today.

 

Ta-da! Here it is, the Moto Z2 Force, in all its
unbreakable* glory.

Motorola Moto Z2 Force Edition

The Moto Z2 Force Edition is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, and sports a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, and largely resembles the Z Force from 2016. However the laredesigned fingerprint sensor and dual rear camera, do stand out as noticeable differences.

Motorola Moto E4 now available at Sprint and Boost Mobile

Starting today, Sprint and Boost Mobile are selling the Moto E4, one of Motorola’s newest (and cheapest) smartphones. Previously released unlocked, as well as via Verizon and MetroPCS, the Moto E4 runs Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box, and is definitely a handset to consider if you’re on a tight budget.

While it’s more expensive than on Verizon and MetroPCS, Sprint’s and Boost’s Moto E4 is still cheaper than the unlocked version of the phone, which costs $129.99. The handset can be purchased from Boost Mobile for $79.99 (plus tax) after instant online rebate, …

Motorola Moto E4 will cost just $49 at MetroPCS (or $0 if you switch)

Released last month as one of Motorola’s cheapest smartphones ever, the Moto E4 is currently sold for around $100 if you’re buying it unlocked, or just $69.99 if you want to get it from Verizon. Starting July 31, the handset will be available for even less thanks to MetroPCS (T-Mobile’s prepaid brand).

MetroPCS will sell the Moto E4 for only $49 (plus tax) after rebate, no contract required. Or, if you switch to MetroPCS with a qualifying number, you’ll be able to get the new phone for free (after instant rebate) plus tax.

The Moto E4 is definitely a product …

Unlocked Motorola Moto Z2 Play (for T-Mobile and AT&T) is now unofficially available via Amazon

Released in the US at the end of June (last week), the Motorola Moto Z2 Play is currently available only on Verizon Wireless – thus, it’s locked and can’t be used on other carriers. Of course, an unlocked version of the Moto Z2 Play will be available in the US sometime later this summer, but maybe you don’t want to wait until then to get it. If you don’t, you can already order an unlocked Z2 Play via Amazon, though there are a few caveats here.

The Moto Z2 Play that can currently be bought through Amazon isn’t officially sold by Motorola, but by a third-party …

Motorola Moto Z2 Play Review

Introduction
Modular smartphone hardware is, at the very least, an intriguing concept: since phones are far from one-size-fits-all, it makes sense to let users choose the hardware features that matter most to them, and by making this hardware modular, it saves shoppers the expense of picking up a whole new phone every time their desires shift.

But for as nice as the idea is, actually making modular smartphones work is an uphill battle, and even giants like Google have looked long and hard at such projects before eventually declaring, “Nope!”

But last year Lenovo-owned Motorola …

Motorola to hold July 25th new product unveiling event in New York City

Looks like Motorola will be unveiling at least one new phone in New York City around the end of the current month (July 25th to be exact). Invites sent out by the company say, “You won’t want to miss this,” and colored tunnels flash red, yellow, orange, pink and blue lights. We could see the Moto Z2 Force introduced (we recently got a peek at the AT&T version of the phone) along with the Moto X4. The latter might feature a dual camera-set up and an IP68 certification rating. That is a bit unusual for Motorola as the company usually relies on nano-coating fron P2i to protects a handset from …

Motorola Moto E4 Review

Introduction
The Moto E series hit the scene in mid-2014, quick on the heels of the Moto G’s success in the mid-range market. While the G series has offered solid, though intermediate, hardware at less than half the cost of high-end flagships, the E series was priced and configured specifically for entry-level consumers. Delivering a similarly high value proposition in the $100 – $200 price range – even in the days when 2-year contracts were all the rage – MSRP on the E series was kept low, typically hovering around the $100 mark. This year, we see the return of this low-cost performer – now …

AT&T Motorola Moto Z2 Force leaks out, all sides visible

It’s been quite a few months since we first saw the Motorola Moto Z2 Force, and yet the handset hasn’t been officially announced, and, for now, we don’t know exactly when this should happen. Nevertheless, today, we have new information about the upcoming smartphone.

According to a render revealed by Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), the Moto Z2 Force will be launched by AT&T at some point. Previously, we heard that the handset would also be available via Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint – thus, it looks like all major US carriers will offer the device.

Motorola Moto E4 Plus Review

Introduction
In the world of smartphones, the true rock stars are often the top-tier heavy-hitters — your Samsung Galaxy S-es, your iPhones and Premium Xperias. These are devices that are filled to the brim with the latest and greatest in commercially available hardware and carry a justifiably high price tag for that. But there are also a few that become popular for going in the opposite direction — handsets that make the most out of the low-end hardware they’re built around and provide the budget conscious with a surprisingly solid user experience.
