From the Forums: Moto X, Moto G, Moto 360 and more



It’s been a whirlwind of a day thanks to Motorola. The manufacturer dropped not one but three Android devices in our laps (plus a number of accessories), and you may have noticed quite a bit of coverage on Phandroid. What you might not realize, though, is that we have dedicated forums for all of Moto’s latest Android goodies over at Android Forums. This week, in lieu of our standard From the Forums post, we’ll be highlighting he discussions surrounding the new Moto X and Moto G as well as the Moto 360.

Moto X+1 is now the new Moto X


Remember the Moto X+1? The rumored name for Motorola’s Moto X followup turned out the be a red herring. The device launched as the new Moto X (call it 2014 Edition or Second Generation), which means the Moto X+1 forums over at Android Forums must be obsolete, right? Not so fast. The discussion is migrating over to our new Moto X forums. Confused yet?

So did the second gen Moto X live up to the hype of its rumored specs? Does the phone elicit feelings of ‘meh’? Head over to Android Forums and let your thoughts be known. If you’re still forming an opinion, check out our hands-on with Motorola’s latest as well as unboxing video.

The new Moto G is one affordably priced smartphone


The Moto X might be Motorola’s flagship, but their best-selling smartphone just so happens to be it’s more affordable sibling, the Moto G. Motorola took the opportunity to update their budget offering, as well, adding a larger display and other tweaks to make it even more appealing.  And wouldn’t you know, we’ve got a brand new forum dedicated to the $179 smartphone.

The new version of the phone went on sale today. If you are considering a purchase, check out our hands-on and unboxing videos first. Then head over to Android Forums to let us know what you think!

Finally available, is the Moto 360 a good buy?

The Moto 360 is finally available for purchase, but is it a good buy? Assuming you can get your hands one one (the smartwatch hit backorder status at a breakneck pace), is the Moto 360 the Android Wear device to buy? Or should you wait for something better? The early consensus among forum member is a resounding “yes.”

Again, you can check out our full Moto 360 coverage to inform your opinion. We’ve got video of our unboxing and first impressions of the device. You can also check out our dedicated Moto 360 forum for even more.

But let’s not forget the Galaxy Note 4…


While Motorola has our attention today, let’s not forget another highly anticipated smartphone that launched this week, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. Here are some threads to check out:

Quite the big week for Android. We’ll be back to your regularly scheduled From the Forums next week, so be sure to sign up for your Android Forums account and get those posts in. Maybe we’ll see you among next week’s highlights.
