When it comes to folding smartphones, there are two entries that have been brought to the tablet by mainstream OEMs: the Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X. The devices pack large folding s and are powered by burly octa-core processors; the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 on the former, and the Kirin 980 on the latter. However, each of those smartphones is priced through the stratosphere. The Galaxy Fold carries a price tag of $1,980, while the Mate X will set you back a whopping $2,600. Motorola may be going for the more practical approach with its upcoming RAZR remake, as witnessed by the specs that the folks over at XDA-Developers were able to dig up on the folding... Read more...
Earlier this month, Motorola confirmed that it is indeed working on a folding smartphone (likely dubbed Moto RAZR); one that will inevitably be compared to the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the crowd favorite Huawei Mate X. Previously, a potential design for the smartphone was revealed by the World Intellectual Property Organisation, which showed off a folding primary display (portrait orientation) and a smaller secondary display on the exterior (which can be used when the primary display is closed). Now, the folks over at XDA-Developers claim to have received some insider information on how the secondary display will function. For starters, unlike the Galaxy... Read more...
Over the past several months, Motorola has dropped hints that it would like to release a folding smartphone as the spiritual successor to its famed Moto RAZR family. Those intentions came more into focus when a patent filing revealed drawings of the device in question. Now, a new report from Engadget all but confirms the company’s intentions to re-enter the fray to tackle devices like the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X. "We started to work on foldables a long time ago," said Motorola VP of Global Product Dan Dery. "And we have been doing a lot of iteration." According to Dery, Motorola doesn’t want to be last major player on the market... Read more...
Late last week we received word that Motorola was working on a successor to its widely popular original RAZR flip phone. However, rather than being a "dumb phone", this would be modern design with all the "luxury" trappings of the Android operating system. Today, we're getting a closer look at what Motorola is potentially cooking up thanks to drawings that were found in a December patent filing with the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO). There is nothing by way of logos or any information regarding the specs of the device, but we can clearly see the overall design language of the phone, which most definitely pays homage to the original. The device takes on the traditional... Read more...
Before the rise of smartphone and especially the iPhone, the Motorola RAZR was THE smartphone that everyone wanted to have. It was stylish, it was thin (for its time) and it was an all-around good smartphone. The RAZR name has long since faded into obscurity, but a new report this morning indicates that Motorola could be bringing it back with a new smartphone. According to the report from the Wall Street Journal, Lenovo wants Motorola to deliver a folding smartphone to counter incoming entries from the likes of Samsung, Huawei, and LG. Motorola's standing in the smartphone world has eroded quite a bit over the years, and its sales don't come anywhere close to matching the like... Read more...
Take a look at a smartphone from a few years ago compared to something available today and you'll find a number of major differences. Screens, processors, operating systems and more are advancing at a breakneck speed. However, battery tech has been stuck moving at a relatively glacial pace, as evidenced by even some of the highest spec'ced smartphones of today struggling to make it through a full day of use. This is where Motorola stepped in with the original RAZR MAXX by infusing the DROID RAZR with a large battery to keep even the heaviest of power users satisfied. Fast forward to today and you'll see they're at it again with the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD... Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX HD Review... Read more...

Motorola Mobility, now a division of Google, has been on a tear as of late, releasing potent new Android superphones to the market, in competition with the iPhone 5, Samsung's Galaxy SIII and many others.  Not long ago we gave you a look at the recently released RAZR M, the 4-inch little brother to the hot, new device that just showed up here in our lab the other day.  Considered the middle sibling of Motorola's latest RAZR Trio, the RAZR HD has the same basic platform configuration and identical display as the highest-end RAZR MAXX HD, though the MAXX has a larger 3300mAh (2530mAh for the RAZR HD) battery and 32GB of internal storage versus the RAZR HD's 16GB of on-board storage (12GB...

Motorola Mobility, now a division of Google, has been on a tear as of late, releasing potent new Android superphones to the market, in competition with the iPhone 5, Samsung's Galaxy SIII and many others.  Not long ago we gave you a look at the all new RAZR M, the 4-inch little brother to the hot, new device that just showed up here in our lab today.  Motorola's RAZR HD sports a larger 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display, the same 1.5GHz Dual-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor (a full SoC actually), and it's currently running Android 4.04, otherwise known as Ice Cream Sandwich.  Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is projected to be coming to the device in a follow-on update.

The Motorola DROID RAZR M is billed as a mainstream DROID variant that's aimed at consumers looking to spend less than $100 on a new smartphone. With many Android-based LTE phones selling for $199 to $299 on-contract, having a $99 entry point is a pretty big deal. Perhaps more impressively, Motorola has managed to include a rather stout list of internals, which include a dual-core Snapdragon S4 SoC and 1GB of RAM, despite the lower MSRP… Motorola DROID RAZR M Smartphone Review...

It seems like ages ago that the world first heard the now-unmistakable "DROID" sound-byte. DROID was originally billed as the anti-iPhone, pointing things out that Apple's iOS platform couldn't do, but proclaiming proudly that "DROID does". The campaign seems to have worked. To date, the brand has taken off, proving to be a rousing success for Verizon and Motorola. In fact, many people (incorrectly) refer to Android by just "DROID," similar to how many people refer to iOS as "iPhone." Over the years, Motorola has heavily leveraged the DROID brand. The relaunch of the RAZR was also a monumental decision. Just under a year ago, we reviewed the first DROID RAZR, which shipped with... Read more...
