Exclusive: Here’s a new look at the Lenovo Motorola Moto Z2 Force


 

In the past several weeks, there’s been a number of leaks showing off some of Motorola’s upcoming 2017 lineup of phones. Today, we have another one of our own to show you as we have received an official render of the Moto Z2 Force, which will be the flagship high-end handset from Lenovo’s mobile division. The render comes from a reliable source familiar with Lenovo’s plans.

The design of the Moto Z2 Force in this render shows that it looks much like the previously leaked image of the Moto Z2 Play. The front of the phone is a bit different on the Moto Z2 Force, but the biggest difference is on the back, showing what looks like a dual camera set-up, versus just a single sensor on the back of the Moto Z2 Play. The design fits in with previous render leaks of the Moto Z2 Force that we have posted.

A recent photo of a internal sales presentation confirmed that the Moto Z2 Force will have a 5.5-inch Full HD display with Motorola’s “ShatterShield” technology, designed to make the screen shatterproof if the phone falls or is dropped. The presentation also said it would support 1 GHz LTE speeds, which is a big hint that the phone will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor, which can handle those kinds of cellular network speeds.

We expect Motorola to officially announce the Moto Z2 Force, and its many other upcoming phones, sometime this summer. In the meantime, what do you think of the look of the phone? Let us know in the comments!

Motorola will offer two Moto Mod teams funding to help launch their products


Motorola has been trying to encourage third-party developers to make unique Moto Mods for its lineup of Moto Z phones. This week, the company had 13 of those development teams present their device ideas to a panel of Motorola, Lenovo Capital, and Verizon executives. The final result was that two of those teams may get funding from Lenovo Capital to help launch their products.

Moto Z and Moto Z Force (DROID) review

July 21, 2016

One of the winning Moto Mod proposals was Digiframe, which is supposed to add a second e-paper screen to the back of a Moto Z phone to quickly show information like the weather, a person’s schedule, and more. Users can even stick the Digiframe to a refrigerator with its magnetic back to post notes to other people in the house.

Both of these concepts could receive a share of $ 1 million in investment funding from Lenovo Capital.

The other winning Moto Mod idea was the MACAY TrueSound HiFi accessory, which came out of one of Motorola’s hackathon events in New York City. It will allow Moto Z phones to add higher end audio ports that are usually found in more expensive speakers so owners of those phones can have a much better listening experience on their headphones.

Both of these concepts could receive a share of $ 1 million in investment funding from Lenovo Capital, but that decision is not yet final as the group will still have to perform its due diligence before a final investment proposal is made to those teams.

The teams behind Digiframe and MACAY TrueSound HiFi have also been accepted into the new Moto Mods Accelerator Program. It will provide those teams with hands-on assistance from experienced engineering and design partners that might help them launch their Moto Mod ideas into real products that would eventually be sold by Verizon. Four other Moto Mod design teams have also been enrolled in the program. They include the previously announced Keyboard mod, which will add a physical keyboard to the Moto Z phones, and the Edge mod, which will add multi-LED notification lights around the phone.

The other two concepts that were accepted in the accelerator program are a wireless charging Moto Mod, and one that places a solar energy charging mod on the back of the Moto Z phones. It will be very interesting to see if one or more of these concepts will finally come to life as real products that can be purchased by current Moto Z owners.

Just a quick reminder: The G4 Plus has a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, a 16 MP rear camera, a wide-angle 5 MP front-facing camera, and a fingerprint sensor.

Mother’s Day promo: Moto X Pure Edition for just $300


moto-x-pricing

On April 20th Motorola kicked off a special promotion where you could pick up the Moto X Pure Edition for just $ 350, $ 50 off the normal asking price. The sale was set to end on May 2nd, today. Well, it’s true, the sale is over… But a new – better one – has begun in its place.

Next Sunday is Mother’s Day and in celebration Motorola is now offering $ 100 off the Moto X Pure Edition, bringing its price to just $ 300. The Moto X might not be the latest hotness anymore with plenty of great 2016 flagships already out to the public, but it’s still a solid performer and at this price, it’s a heck of a deal. This latest offer ends on May 9th, so you have about a week to decide whether or not to jump on this or not.

As a recap, the Moto X Pure Edition is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with 3GB of RAM. Other specs include a 5.7-inch QHD display, 16 to 64GB storage, microSD, a 3000 mAh battery, and 21MP main cam. Of course you also get Moto Maker customization here, allowing you to make the handset of your dreams.

What do you think, is this worth the new asking price? Share your thoughts down in the comments.

Moto X Style (Pure Edition) vs Samsung Galaxy S6


When the Samsung Galaxy S6 debuted earlier this year, the Korean manufacturer surprised the world by introducing a major overhaul to the build quality and design of its flagship, which better matched the premium price the series commanded. While this was a much-needed change, it did result in some previously signature features going by the wayside.

On the other hand, the latest high-end offering from Motorola retained a lot of what made its predecessor so good, and it remains mostly familiar, save for the bump in size, slightly more refined design elements, and necessary upgrades to key hardware aspects.

How does Motorola’s inexpensive flagship fair against what is arguably the best Galaxy S smartphone that Samsung has ever produced? We find out, in this in-depth look at the Moto X Style (Pure Edition) vs Samsung Galaxy S6!

Design

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-8

In terms of design, the first thing you will notice with these two smartphones is how different they are when it comes to the overall aesthetics.

As mentioned, the Moto X Pure Edition retains a lot of the design language of its predecessor, apart from the significant bump in size, including a metal frame, and the curved corners and back that allows for the device to nestle nicely in the palm of your hand. Given its larger footprint, the handling experience isn’t the most comfortable, but the ultra-thin bezels around the sides of the display and small top and bottom chin make for a device that is a lot more manageable that what its 5.7-inch display might suggest. The standard rubbery silicone backing provides a lot of grip as well, but if that is not very important, there are plenty of other options available to you via Moto Maker.

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-13

Like the other Moto X family members before it, one of the biggest selling points of the current Motorola flagship is the level of customization available to you. Moto Maker allows you to pick and choose your own color scheme, accent colors, and material for the back cover, and you also have the ability to add custom engravings and messages on the back, for that little bit more of a personalized touch. This kind of personalization is unmatched by any other OEM, and is a very unique aspect of the Moto X experience.

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-15

On the other hand, the Samsung Galaxy S6 may have only a handful of color options to choose from, but the big story with the latest Galaxy S flagship was Samsung’s decision to be done with plastic, in favor of a glass and metal unibody construction. With a lot of familiar elements, it does look like a Samsung smartphone through and through, but it looks and feels far more high-end, as is expected from a flagship device of this caliber.

The glass on the back can be a fingerprint magnet, and does make the phone somewhat slippery as well, but given its more compact size, one-handed use is still very comfortable with the Galaxy S6.

Display

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-7

The Moto X Pure Edition comes with a 5.7-inch IPS LCD display, while the Samsung Galaxy S6 features a 5.1-inch Super AMOLED screen. With the resolution of both displays being 2560 x 1440, sharpness is of no concern with either. The Galaxy S6 does come with a higher pixel density of 577 ppi compared to the 520 ppi of the Moto X Pure Edition, but that is a difference that is going to hardly be noticeable. What is notable however is the distinction caused by the different underlying technologies of these two displays.

Samsung is well known for its display prowess, and once again, the Super AMOLED display of the Galaxy S6 offers the vibrant, saturated colors and high contrast that we’ve come to expect. The inky dark blacks are not only great for battery life, but also look much cleaner when compared to the grayish blacks on the LCD display of the Motorola smartphone.

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-1

That’s not to say that the display of the Moto X Pure Edition is disappointing in any way. It is a great looking screen with surprisingly great colors, viewing angles, and brightness, and while the use of AMOLED might have made more sense given some of the software features available with the Moto X, the switch to LCD is certainly not a deal breaker. Gaming and media-consumption is also very enjoyable with the Moto X Pure Edition, with users able to take advantage of the additional display real estate this is available to them.

Performance

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-3

Under the hood, the Moto X Pure Edition features a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, clocked at 1.8 GHz, and backed by the Adreno 418 GPU, while the Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with an octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, clocked at 2.1 GHz, and backed by the Mali-T760MP8 GPU. While both devices offer 3 GB of RAM, you are dealing with the much faster DDR4 RAM with the Galaxy S6, compared to DDR3 on the Motorola device.

The Moto X Pure Edition may not be winning any specs races, but Motorola’s focus with their devices has always been on providing a great user experience, and that, fortunately, continues to hold true with their latest offering. Courtesy of a near-stock software iteration, the Moto X Pure Edition is fast, fluid, responsive, and rarely skips a beat. Swiping, scrolling, opening applications, multi-tasking, and gaming are all handled extremely well, and ultimately, that is what is going to matter the most.

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-16

On the other hand, Samsung flagships have always come with whatever was deemed the latest and greatest at the time, but unfortunately, real world performance has historically never lived up to expectations. This time around, Samsung decided to give the Snapdragons of the world a skip in favor of their in-house processing package, and that has proved to be a fantastic move.

The Galaxy S6 performs the way a flagship should, with a lot of credit going to Samsung’s optimization of their Touchwiz software suite, that comes with a lot less bloatware and unnecessary features than we’ve seen from Samsung in the past. The Galaxy S6 is easily the smoothest performing Samsung flagship that has ever been released, and while it still has its flaws, like the aggressive RAM management, it is still leaps and bounds ahead of what we’ve seen from the company over the years.

Hardware

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-13

In storage, the Moto X Pure Edition is available with 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB of storage, while the Samsung Galaxy S6 comes with 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB variants. The higher storage options may be the better way to go with the Galaxy S6, given the lack of expandable storage, a previous staple feature that Samsung decided to remove this time around. The story is the opposite with the Motorola flagship however, with the Moto X Pure Edition featuring expandable storage via microSD card, something that wasn’t available with its predecessors. This means that you will be able to alleviate any storage concerns, even if you opt for the base 16 GB model.

Another advantage the Moto X Pure Edition has over the Samsung Galaxy S6 is in terms of speaker quality. The former comes with a dual front-facing speaker setup which sounds fantastic, and provides a far better audio experience for gaming and watching videos when compared to the single, bottom-mounted speaker of the latter. The speaker of the Galaxy S6 is not bad by any means and can actually get quite loud, but it does pale in comparison to the Moto X Pure Edition.

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-10

The Galaxy S6 does feature a few extras in hardware that aren’t available with the Moto X Pure Edition, starting with the fingerprint scanner. If you appreciate the added benefit and security of having a fingerprint reader, then the reader on the Galaxy S6 is certainly not going to disappoint. The reader is fast, reliable, and easy to set up, and its touch type nature is a far better implementation that the swipe gesture version seen with some of Samsung’s earlier flagships. Apart from unlocking the device, the fingerprint scanner is also compatible for use with Samsung Pay and Android Pay, for that layer of extra security when using these mobile payment systems. The Galaxy S6 also comes with a heart rate monitor on the back, which is a useful addition for some.

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-12

On the battery front, the Moto X Pure Edition comes with a 3,000 mAh battery, larger than the 2,550 mAh unit of the Samsung Galaxy S6. Neither battery is replaceable, and while that is standard for the Moto X device, it is a significant departure from the norm for the Samsung flagship. The battery life is better with the Moto X Pure Edition, but not significantly so.

Both devices come with fast charging capabilities as well, making it extremely easy to get both phones up and running in a short time. The Samsung Galaxy S6 also comes with support for both standards of wireless charging, which is always a nice option to have.

Camera

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-11

The Moto X Pure Edition comes with a 21 MP rear camera, with phase detection auto focus and a f/2.0 aperture, while the Galaxy S6 features a 16 MP camera, with a f/1.9 aperture, and optical image stabilization.

Moto X Pure Edition camera samples

The Moto X series has never really been known for its camera capabilities, but the Moto X Pure Edition features some significant improvements this time around, resulting in a camera experience that can finally match up to the rest of the competition. Both smartphones are capable of taking excellent photos in most lighting situations, but the edge has to be given to the Galaxy S6 here, for its better dynamic range and low-light performance.

Samsung Galaxy S6 camera samples

Where the Moto X Pure Edition falls short is with regards to the camera application. It is far too minimalistic, especially when compared to what is available with the Galaxy S6. The GS6 camera app comes with a few more options and manual controls that really help make a difference. Futhermore, tapping on the viewfinder to take a shot on the Motorola device just doesn’t feel as intuitive as having a dedicated shutter button.

Software

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-5

On the software side of things, both smartphones are running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, but the experience each offers is completely different from the other. With the Moto X Pure Edition, you get a near stock Android iteration with some useful features from Motorola baked in, such as twisting your wrist to open the camera, chopping twice to turn on the LED flash, glancing at notifications with Moto Display, or discreetly performing voice commands, just to name a few.

The Galaxy S6 on the other hand, comes with Samsung’s typical Touchwiz interface, and while it is a significant departure from stock Android, it is a much cleaner and toned down build of Touchwiz this time around. There is a lot less bloatware, and Samsung also got rid of a lot of unnecessary features. Those that were useful are retained however, such as multi-window, and motion gestures, like swiping your palm over the screen to capture a screen shot, or flipping the phone over to mute a call. Things may not aesthetically be very different from previous iterations of Touchwiz, but if you aren’t a fan of the look, you can now easily change it via the built-in theme store. The theme store is extremely robust, with a lot of options to choose from, and is probably one of the best features of this new version of Touchwiz.

If getting timely updates is of concern, the safer bet would be on the Moto X Pure Edition to get the official update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow first, but hopefully, we won’t be waiting too long for either of these devices to get updated.

Conclusion

So there you have it for this in-depth look at the Moto X Style (Pure Edition) vs Samsung Galaxy S6! When picking up any new smartphone, price always has an important role to play, and we’ve seen a big surge in devices that continue to offer great specifications and features at affordable price points. Considering that the Moto X Pure Edition features a large Quad HD display, great front-facing speakers, a pretty decent camera, and a lot of customization via Moto Maker, its $ 400 starting price makes it one of the best bang for your buck devices of 2015.

Moto X Pure Edition VS Samsung Galaxy S6-18

The Galaxy S6 is clearly the more expensive of the two, by a big margin, but it offers a few useful like extras, like a fingerprint scanner, wireless charging, and more powerful specifications. It is up to you as to whether these features are worth the extra cost, and if they are, then the Galaxy S6 will certainly not disappoint. However, if you are looking for a smartphone that provides a lot of value for not a lot of money, look no further than the Moto X Pure Edition.

Motorola Connect app updated with improved UI, 2015 Moto 360 support and additional watch faces


motorola-logo-mwc-2015-1

Those who use Motorola accessories or smart devices definitely need some help keeping all their gadgets in check. This is why the Motorola Connect app exists; to help users manage their multiple Motorola articles. If you are one of the many who take advantage of this software tool, you may notice there is a new update awaiting in the Google Play Store. You should go get it soon, as it brings forth some meaningful improvements.

The main enhancement is likely the addition of the Moto 360 (2015) to the list of supported devices. The new Android Wear watch joins a list of plenty other supported devices, including the older Moto 360, the Moto Pulse, Moto Surround, Motorola Power Pack Micro, Motorola Keylink and the Motorola Connect PC Extension.

Supporting the new Moto 360 will only benefit a few of you, though. What most users will actually notice is the improved UI, which makes the experience “more intuitive and easier to navigate”. It looks very similar to the new Moto app, which we saw on the newest Moto G and Moto X smartphones.

motorola-connect-screenshots

The new design is sleek and clean. There is a floating action button that allows users to add their devices, and you can simply navigate through your current Moto products and access their settings. By the way, this apps also makes it possible to change the Moto 360 watch faces, and if you jump into the wearable’s options you may find that Motorola also added the new ones from the 2015 Moto 360.

Of course, there’s also the usual batch of bug fixes, but we have no idea what those are all about. Go get your update from the Google Play Store and join the conversation in the comments below. Are you liking the new UI?
