Voda to carry the Moto Z2 Play

Yes, that’s pretty much the entire content of this story, right there in the title. Still, I’ve read the Daily Mail website and, if we now throw in 40 very similar photos with 4 paragraphs of text, it will apparently constitute a story. The Moto Z2 Play, which …

Moto phones get their own Motorola Camera app in the Play Store

Why is this a thing worth mentioning? There’s a camera app specifically for Motorola phones (called surprisingly enough, Motorola Camera). It largely depends on whether you have a Motorola phone or not. More precisely, whether you have, or intend to get, one of the 2016 crop of Motorola …

Welcome to the Moto Z family

Did you watch the live announcement? If not, you can watch it all again here. Anyhow, come close, because we have to get one thing out of the way… Say goodbye to that 3.5mm audio port. Yes, I know. I know. Moto appear to have beaten Apple to …

Moto X Force – Dropped from a drone

Sure, our Moto X Force review was pretty comprehensive, but the one thing we didn’t do was… drop it 900 feet from a drone. Yes, the phone does have a shatterproof screen, but surely it wouldn’t be able to survive that, would it? Plus, even if it did, …

Today is an exciting day. I have received a new phone to review. One that comes with a very bold claim. It apparently has a shatterproof screen. Yes, I’m talking about the new Moto X Force. This is a phone that, at first glance, looks unassuming and mild-mannered. However, …

Goodbye Moto G and E

Here at Coolsmartphone we universally loved the Moto G. It was our go-to phone when we were asked “What’s a decent inexpensive Android phone ?” I think that all of us here have owned at least one. Well yesterday Chen Xudong, Lenovo’s Mobile head honcho, was interviewed and we …

So long Moto..rola

It’s a brand which is well known here in the UK. I’m sure we still have the “Hello Moto” tagline stuck in our head, even though Motorola Mobility has been under the control of Lenovo for a while now. It’s been announced that the full Motorola name will …
