Motorola Droid ULTRA Review

Motorola Droid ULTRA Review

Motorola released three new Droids smartphones just a few months ago: the Droid ULTRA, the Droid MAXX and the Droid MINI. The Droid ULTRA is the droid that you’ve been looking for if you want to save a couple of bucks from the Droid MAXX, which has an increased 3500mAh battery. It’s also a phone you might be interested in if you owned the Droid RAZR in the past and you’re looking for the latest and greatest Motorola Droid phone.

The Motorola Droid ULTRA is a mid-ranged Android smartphone as it features a 1.7GHz dual-core processor and a 5-inch 1280 x 720 Super AMOLED display, although Motorola certainly bumps things up with its 10MP main camera. The ULTRA brings back the kevlar to the latest Droid, but this time, Motorola has created a unibody kevlar body for the phone, rather than just feature a kevlar rear.

Motorola certainly has big shoes to fill from its popular Droid RAZRs, but can their new ULTRA live up to the Droid name? There’s only one way to find out and that’s with our official review.

    Moto G Review

    Moto G Review

    The Moto G is generating a lot of interest worldwide as it hits new markets. Promoted by Motorola as having “quad-core speed” and “exceptional price”, it is a compelling pitch that catches eyes and ears immediately. The phone is built to please: it does not make any design statement, but has a clean look with a plethora of color customizations through clip-on accessories. Inside, the Moto G runs with an almost-stock Android experience which Motorola has promised to keep updated as fast as possible.

    For $179, this sounds pretty appealing, but is the Moto G as good as it sounds? This review will tell you how it feels to use the Moto G in the real world and what are its true strengths and weaknesses. Ready? (more…)

    Lenovo CEO Believes Motorola Can Be Profitable

    lenovo-yoga-2-pro-review-10

    If you haven’t heard by now, American icon Motorola has been sold to Lenovo by Google for $2.9 billion. Mountain View paid a lot of money when it initially acquired Motorola Mobility, but under its belt that company wasn’t able to generate any profit. It bled red all over Google’s balance sheets, which some presume is the reason why Google finally decided to cut the cord. Lenovo, a well established PC vendor that’s been wanting to play a greater role in the global smartphone market for quite some time, gets access to all the talent as well as the globally renowned brand name. That might not be enough to return it back to profitability, though Lenovo CEO Yang Yuanqing is confident that there’s enough potential to make it profitable once again.

    Google Gets To Keep Motorola’s Project Ara

    motorola-ara-05As you guys might have heard by now, Lenovo recently confirmed that they would be acquiring Motorola Mobility from Google for close to $3 billion. Considering that Google bought the company for $12 billion back in 2011, this seemed like a huge discount, especially considering that their patents would also be transferred to Lenovo as well, but perhaps there could be a reason why Google sold Motorola so cheaply. It could be because that not everything will be going to Lenovo, as it was revealed during a brief conference call held by Lenovo that while they will be acquiring everything else, they will not be getting their hands on Moto’s Advanced Technology and Projects Group.

    That particular group which is headed by former DARPA director, Regina Dugan, will instead be transferred over to Google’s Android team which is being led by Sundar Pichai at the moment. For those unfamiliar with the Advanced Technology and Projects Group, this is the team that has been responsible for some of Motorola’s more “out there” projects such as tattoo security sensors, authentication pills, and Project Ara, the modular smartphone concept that is being made into a reality as we speak. Perhaps with the backing and absorption into Google, these more “out there” projects by Motorola could start taking off.

    Motorola Patent Will Help Drivers Avoid Obstacles On The Road

    motorola-patent-figure-264x350Have you ever been driving behind a car only to have them suddenly swerve to the left or right? We’re sure most drivers have encountered something like that and it’s not because the driver in front is drunk, but it could be that they suddenly spotted debris on the road that had to be avoided, like a broken off car part, rubbish, road kill, a pot hole, and so on. This can be very dangerous to drivers at either side and at the back who might not know what the heck just happened, but that’s a problem that Motorola is interested in solving. In a recent patent by Motorola, it talks about how cars will come equipped with sensors and cameras that will be able to snap photos of the obstacle and relay it to other drivers, warning them of what’s to come.

    According to the patent’s description, “An inter-vehicle alert system controls the camera to initiate capturing video data which includes the video data. A method of operation modulates a radar signal to include at least a portion of the video data captured in response to detecting an obstruction, and transmits the radar signal to a second vehicle via an antenna array oriented at the moving vehicle’s rear.” It’s actually interesting that Motorola is the one who patented it, not Google who might be working on it with their Google X team, or the team behind the self-driving car, but either way it is a pretty cool idea, don’t you think?

    Google To Sell Motorola To Lenovo For $3B [Confirmed]

    motorola-colorful-logoThis report has surfaced on China Daily Report and is spreading like wildfire over the web and social networks: according to them, Lenovo is buying Motorola Mobility from Google for $3 Billion – and yes that would include the patents. First of all the first thing that sounds really wrong about this is that Google purchased Motorola Mobility and the patents for $12B. It’s not like Google needs any cash, but still, that seems like an awfully big discount for a company and brand that is on a slight path upwards. (more…)
