Motorola's Mods have been wide-ranging attempts to trick out your smartphone with sizeable gadgets, from a 360-degree camera to a standalone speaker with Amazon Alexa. Their next one might be more appealing to casual Moto Z smartphone owners: A Polar… Engadget RSS Feed
According to a new report from market research firm Strategy Analytics, Apple retained the top spot in the US smartphone market in Q3, although both shipments and market share were down. While the shipments figure for the Cupertino-based company stood at 12 million (down from 13 million in the same quarter last year), market share was 30.4% (a drop of around 2%). Samsung also retained the second spot, but both shipments and market share were up – from 9.7 to 9.9 million, and 24.2% to 25.1%, respectively. LG, ZTE, and Motorola also held their rankings to round up the top…
It seems like Motorola’s latest just can’t catch a break. Following the unfortunate news about the hardiness of the ShatterSheild display, it turns out there may be another problem with the screen. The Moto Z2 Force may also suffer from the “jelly” effect which results in a slight distortion of the screen on certain animations.
That should sound pretty familiar, as it’s the same issue the OnePlus 5’s display has.
The Moto Z2 Force is a pretty great phone (our review here) so long as you can deal with the easily scratchable screen. If you’ve been interested in the modular, shatterproof phone, you can now actually pick one up. The launch is particularly notable because its one of the few Motorola flagships to be available outside of Verizon in the US. You can get it from all the four major carriers, as well as U.S. Cellular. It costs $ 720, or $ 30 per month financing, though Best Buy is selling some versions for a bit cheaper. In related news, the company…
Back in February this year, Motorola announced several new Moto Mods, including a GamePad Mod that converts your smartphone into a mobile gaming console by adding physical controls. Well, the add-on is now available to pre-order in US. The GamePad Mod is exclusive to Verizon, which has it listed for $ 79.99 on its website. It’s likely that sales of the device will not be restricted to Verizon customers. Anyway, shipments are scheduled to begin August 25 onwards. Source | Via
Motorola announced the Z2 Force at an event in New York City yesterday, ostensibly the 2017 flagship for the struggling smartphone brand, following up the Z and Z Force of 2016. The Z series is notable both for marking a major transition of Moto’s flagship strategy, but also for the Moto Mods that underpinned the alleged reasoning behind that shift.
Motorola loves to toss out figures about the adoption rate for Moto Mods, but it hasn’t issued any real solid ones in regard to which Mods people are using or how often they’re using them.
Motorola just formally announced the newest addition to its collection of Moto Mod add-ons, a 360-degree camera that magnetically attaches to the back of any of the Moto Z series of devices.
I had a few minutes to try out the new Mod, and it more or less works pretty much as advertised. The white back case isn’t much thicker than Motorola’s other wireless charging add-ons — except for the giant, two-sided camera that sticks out of the top. The module is probably a little bit too big to casually keep attached to your phone as a day-to-day option, but the modular nature of the Moto Mod system makes it super simple to detach it when you’re not using it.
Once attached, the phone automatically recognized the Mod, with the…
Motorola is as well known for its cheap phones as it is for flagships, so no one was surprised when it revealed the fourth-generation Moto E earlier this month. For those not familiar, Motorola's E line always felt like a curiosity, as though the com… Engadget RSS Feed
