Project Fi’s Moto X4 Orders Pushed Back Due to Production Delay

We first heard about Google's Project Fi partnering with another company for its first non-Google smartphone on the service earlier this year. This device ended up being the Moto X4 and it made a lot of people excited since there wasn't a Moto X series smartphone released in 2016. This also expanded Project Fi's current...

Get the Latest Moto Display APK from the Moto X4 on your Moto Z

When the Motorola Moto Z2 was released, they updated the Moto Display system application with a new feature that allows you to reply to messages without unlocking your phone. However, they never brought this feature over to the original Moto Z. That doesn't mean you can't enjoy this new feature, however. XDA Senior Member onslaught86 started digging into the...

Motorola Starts Rolling Out Android Nougat Update to Moto X Pure Edition in the US

For those still holding onto a Moto X Pure Edition in the US, you will be happy to know that your device won’t be stuck on Android Marshmallow forever. It appears that Motorola is finally rolling out the much-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update to the Moto X Pure Edition in the US. The company hasn't...

Motorola Uploads a Camera Tuner App for the Moto X4 in the Play Store

Traditionally, OEMs have needed to push out full OTA updates if they wanted to substantially improve the camera experience of their smartphone. We then started to see certain companies uploading individual applications (such as the camera application) to the Play Store so they can be updated much faster. Lately, Motorola has gone a different route...

Motorola Releases Nougat’s Kernel Source Code for the Moto Z2 Play and G5S Plus

Thanks to the General Public License (GPL), the developer community here at XDA has been able to grow into what it is today. While most of the well-known OEMs continue to abide by the GPL (with varying timeliness), many have ignored its requirements even though it is seen as violating a legally binding contract. Companies like Samsung...

Motorola Moto X4 is the First Android One Device in the U.S., Available on Project Fi

At the tail end of last month Motorola officially announced the latest phone for their Moto X series: the Moto X4. This was big for fans of the Moto X lineup as Motorola didn't release a device last year due to the transition they were having with Lenovo. Early this year the folks over at...

Motorola to Honor Android Oreo Update Promise for the Moto G4 Plus After Backlash

Lenovo caused an uproar in the community when it announced its Android 8.0 Oreo update plans for its smartphone portfolio. The update list included most 2017 smartphones and 2016 flagships, but ended up excluding the Moto G4 Plus. Such uproar was rightfully warranted in this case, as Motorola had explicitly promised Android N and Android O...

Motorola Served with Warranty-Related Class Action Lawsuit, Arrived to Settlement

We recently covered Motorola not releasing timely or working kernel sources, a punishable offense. Now they have arrived to a settlement in a class action lawsuit filed against them, but for warranty-fulfillment reasons. Motorola allegedly is not fulfilling warranties correctly- if at all. If you have submitted any devices to Motorola under warranty, you may...

Motorola Officially Announces Android 8.0 Oreo Update for Their Device Lineup

Motorola has been quite of a mixed bag when it comes to updates. Back when the company was owned by Google, they released a record-breaking Android 4.4 KitKat update, rolling it out to the Moto X and Moto G even before most other devices. With the Lenovo acquisition beginning 2015, things started to get progressively...

Kernel Sources for Motorola Devices Appear to Differ from Binaries on Live Devices

Android's foundations are born in open source as it was released as an open source operating system and has grown to be the most used operating system in the world. Without licenses like the General Public License (GPL), open source could not have been enforced in the way that it was. XDA itself has grown...

Motorola Launches the Mid-Range Moto X4 for €399, Europe Release in September, US in the Fall

We've been hearing about a new Moto X since May of this year, which was surprising to many since the company didn't release one last year. Initial renders that were leaked had most of the details right, but some were off (the camera module in specific). Then this month the device was approved for sale...

Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus with Improved Cameras, Metal Unibody Design Launched in India

Today Lenovo-owned Motorola officially launched the Moto G5S and Moto G5S Plus in India. Originally announced last month, both devices are an upgraded version of the 5th generation Moto G smartphones which were launched back in February of this year. As far as specifications are concerned, the Moto G5S comes with a 5.2-inch FullHD IPS display,...
