And it definitely looks packed.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">And it definitely is...the plus version comes with the best specs ever on a smartphone... 5G, 12GB RAM, Snapdragon 865, a 108MP camera plus other cameras and a 90Hz display.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">I'll make it short because you are just probably here for the specs.

No one can deny Moto's engineering and design products which have been admired by critics and fans over the years.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">But this week, instead of celebrating this special anniversary with discounts or a rap video like the last two years, Moto is embracing to stay at home.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">Their <a href="https://blog.motorola.com/2020/04/03/47-years-later-making-a-phone-call-seems-more-important-than-ever/">new blog post</a> talks about this and how important it is to #MakeACall to stay connected with our beloved ones. Sure, we have social media now, which we didn't have 47 years ago. We can see what people are up to (or what they want us to think they are up to), but in these uncertain times it's better to use our phones for their main feature: make calls.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">Motorola is also embracing social distancing with a subtle logo change in their social media accounts, separating the batwings.

Moto Mods transform your Moto Z phone into many different things, depending on which Mod you use. Today's Moto Mod review will be the Moto Insta-Share Projector, which is a popular favorite among Moto Z users. The Moto Insta-Share Projector is a mini pico projector that allows you to project anything on your Moto Z phone, onto a wall or ceiling. I projected a photo and video, using my Moto Z Force Droid, and recorded photo and video, using my Moto Z4.</span>&nbsp;</div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: large;">The Moto Insta-Share Projector has it's own Type-C USB port for convenient charging, but can also be charged when attached to any Moto Z phone, if it is plugged in. It has an internal battery that will last 1 hour, then it runs off your Moto Z's battery.&nbsp; It also has a dial to adjust focus, and a power button. The power button can pull up setting for the Mod when pressed once, while the Mod is turned on. Never shine the beam from the Mod in your's or anyone else's eyes because it can cause damage to your vision. There is also a kickstand on the Mod that allows you to stand your Moto Z up for easier projection. The kickstand is where the Motorola Emsignia is on the back.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XY2zzIRi5BA/XoSGW_ih13I/AAAAAAAAIzc/x24G2A_11-kVVIf4K2VhN9uQ4dkC7WeOACLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/IMG_20200401_074934888.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1200" data-original-width="1600" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-XY2zzIRi5BA/XoSGW_ih13I/AAAAAAAAIzc/x24G2A_11-kVVIf4K2VhN9uQ4dkC7WeOACLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/IMG_20200401_074934888.jpg" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;">Left Side of Moto Insta-Share Projector</div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-_dROJUIHd34/XoSGZIEfbBI/AAAAAAAAIzg/s0laCbF2ttYR7c9xHSFiGls8fgFuQZ1ZwCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/IMG_20200401_074920020.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1200" data-original-width="1600" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-_dROJUIHd34/XoSGZIEfbBI/AAAAAAAAIzg/s0laCbF2ttYR7c9xHSFiGls8fgFuQZ1ZwCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/IMG_20200401_074920020.jpg" /></a></div><div style="text-align: center;">Back of Moto Insta-Share Projector</div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: center;"><br /></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: large;">There are many uses for the Moto Insta-Share Projector Mod. Business people can project their PowerPoint presentations on it, without having to carry around a laptop that needs to be connected to the projector. Parents of young children can put a movie on for their children and entertain them. You can take your Moto Z and Moto Insta-Share Projector and show photo off to the entire family at parties. I use mine for entertainment, mostly. I love to stream Netflix and Disney+ on my Moto Z4, using the Moto Insta-Share Projector. The Moto Insta-Share Projector is a really fun Mod to have.

So in a way he caused this mess to save the Motorola brand.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YGKO7g_tAMg/XhfGtOpvT6I/AAAAAAABwBY/CzZCaWGno9kkoa3DesTrxNGCy3mOOS8egCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/lenovomoto.png" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="321" data-original-width="801" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YGKO7g_tAMg/XhfGtOpvT6I/AAAAAAABwBY/CzZCaWGno9kkoa3DesTrxNGCy3mOOS8egCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/lenovomoto.png" /></a></div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;"><b>I literally cried when I read this.</b> I went on a Twitter rant against Lenovo and even <b>got my Twitter account suspended</b>. I emailed every Motorola executive I knew twice a week for the following weeks to see if there were updates on this situation. I even begged Motorola Solutions' CEO to buy Motorola Mobility (I know, I'm lame).</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">Around that time I began writing for TechDroider.com, writing articles about how the products following this press mess were still Motorola and finding evidence that the brand wasn't dead. I would send these articles and other information to the big tech sites so <b>they would cover it and talk about motoROLA</b>. And many did. I also created the <b>Motorola Lovers</b> community and worked long hours to make it grow on social media, where I would promote the Motorola brand with all its eight letters.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">In a way, <b>that was my way to fight back</b>. In the meantime, I was also sending emails to Lenovo executives telling them my story. That's when Jan Huckfeldt stepped in as CMO for Lenovo's Mobile Business Group, and not only listened to me, but to all the fans that were doing the same I was doing through social media, emails, letters and so on.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;"><b>People love a great comeback story</b>, and that's what Motorola did by late 2016. By mid-2017, Motorola was back:</span><br /><br /><iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/otZxH4Nl2vE" width="560"></iframe> <br /><span style="font-size: large;">That was a BIG moment, because I that was when I knew all the time I spent trying to annoy the hell out of everyone meant something. And it really showed that <b>when consumers, the press, and the biggest fans request or complain about something, marketers and companies listen</b>, and it's very important to note that <b>Lenovo did listen to us</b> and quicky changed this decision (and we are very grateful).</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">All in all, the CES 2016 drama will always be an interesting case study:</span><br /><br /><ul><li><span style="font-size: large;"><b>Did Rick Osterloh mention the Motorola brand was being phased out on purpose?</b></span></li><li><span style="font-size: large;">Was that the reason he left Motorola a few months later?

The gold standard for the 2000s really changed the way we see and use these personal devices, and really was one of the first phones to really focus on marketing and visual identity.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">RAZR is one of the main reasons I became a Motorola fan in 2006. Eveyone had one at the time. I didn't, but I wanted one. Motorola quickly became the air I breathe every day and the biggest obsession in my life. It's not a healthy relationship but I don't regret a single day.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">But it was because of RAZR and its marketing surrounding the product that I got to admire this company so much. I remember being 13 years old, drawing RAZR prototypes and their fictional marketing campaigns. And it was so much fun!</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">But now the day has come. 15 years later and this brand still lives and represents a lot to a whole generation, but also to newer generations of curious hearts.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">I hope November 13th does justice to the brand. I hope this new phone has soul. And I really hope Motorola puts their heart and soul into making it the it-product of the upcoming decade.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">Motorola must do it right. For their fans who never left, for 2000s lovers who waited for it and for the mobile industry to stop focusing on unimportant features and designs and to start pushing for disruption.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><b><span style="font-size: large;">hellomoto</span></b><br /><br />Felipe Berhauhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05594391858563354395noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-53197477707588747162019-11-07T13:09:00.002-08:002019-12-20T09:15:19.928-08:00Moto Z4 Review<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Vf_Nx4u3oz0/XcSIcjrkeUI/AAAAAAABuDs/yUPEP8c60HQ43GEMjlDDSUjgiV6za4CMwCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/moto-z4-family-page-hero-d-us.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="267" data-original-width="1600" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Vf_Nx4u3oz0/XcSIcjrkeUI/AAAAAAABuDs/yUPEP8c60HQ43GEMjlDDSUjgiV6za4CMwCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/moto-z4-family-page-hero-d-us.jpg" /></a></div><div><br /></div>For 2 years, I had a Moto Z Force Droid which I loved very much. Unfortunately, there were many complications with my Moto Z Force that started with internal damage from a bad drop that led to one repair after another. My Moto Z Force had a total of 6 repairs. I reached out to both Motorola US and Erv's Vac Shop (my local repair vacuum and cell phone repair shop) for help. Through the several months that my Moto Z Force had one repair after another, Motorola has been nothing but supportive and helpful. <br /><br />Through all of this, I still loved Motorola and stayed loyal to them. My loyalty paid off, because I came home from running errands on July 8th, 2019, to a message from Motorola, asking if I would specify my wireless carrier. Then after specifying my wireless carrier and phone model, not even 10 minutes later, I received a message, saying that they were going to send me an unlocked Moto Z4. Many thanks to Motorola for sending me my Moto Z4. It was a very special gift indeed! I love my Moto Z4 so much that I am writing this review to show my love and appreciation for all things Motorola. <br /><br /><b>What is Moto Z4?</b><br /><br />Moto Z4 is the latest smartphone in Motorola's Moto Z series. It has the latest features out of all Moto Z phones and is compatible with all Moto Mods. One thing that was a huge relief from going to one Moto Z to the next, I did not have to buy many new accessories for my Moto Z4, as all my Moto Mods work with it. I will go over many different features that are included in Moto Z4. This review will mostly feature the unlocked Moto Z4, as I own the unlocked model. I have added a few remarks about the Verizon exclusive Moto Z4 as well.<br /><div dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot;; font-size: 12pt; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"><br /></span></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YoQz-g53AzU/XcK8WZH6bTI/AAAAAAAAIxM/XkjxWuTzLRgGVsptGYfE1scH3PDrvJEjgCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/IMG_20191106_064942365_HDR.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1200" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YoQz-g53AzU/XcK8WZH6bTI/AAAAAAAAIxM/XkjxWuTzLRgGVsptGYfE1scH3PDrvJEjgCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/IMG_20191106_064942365_HDR.jpg" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Front of Moto Z4</td></tr></tbody></table><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ndMHJiwS9Bo/XcK8aGmq_0I/AAAAAAAAIxQ/i8uUSbqArw8rVipWmelDEhHX-cssFdk4wCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/IMG_20191106_065151833.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1600" data-original-width="1200" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-ndMHJiwS9Bo/XcK8aGmq_0I/AAAAAAAAIxQ/i8uUSbqArw8rVipWmelDEhHX-cssFdk4wCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/IMG_20191106_065151833.jpg" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Back of Moto Z4</td></tr></tbody></table><div dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><b>What is included in the box?</b></div>The unlocked model consists of: Moto Z4 phone, quick guide, safety/warranty booklet, and even the Moto 360 Camera Moto Mod. I plan to write a review for the Moto 360 Camera Mod in a later review after I have practiced more with it. There is also a Turbo Power USB adapter and Type-C USB cable included as well. <br /><br />The Verizon model consists of: Moto Z4 phone, Turbo charger with Type - C USB cable, warranty booklet, and quick start guide. There is no Moto Mod included with the Verizon version of Moto Z4. <br /><br /><b>What are the features on Moto Z4?</b><br /><br />Beautiful Display:<br /><br />The Moto Z4 has a beautiful 6.4" OLED display. It also has an optical fingerprint scanner which means the fingerprint scanner is integrated into the screen, instead of being on the back, side or below the screen. In addition to unlocking the screen, the fingerprint scanner also allows you to log into certain apps, such as shopping. Some people have complained that the in-screen fingerprint scanner is not as responsive and is slower to process your fingerprint than a physical fingerprint scanner. On my Moto Z-Force Droid, the fingerprint scanner is more responsive than the one on my Moto Z4. <br /><br />Water Protection:<br />Many phones are being made with a IP68 water resistance rating, which means they can be immersed accidentally to a certain depth for a limited amount of time. However, due to the unique design of Moto Z4 as well as all Moto Z phones, and their Moto Mod connectors, they cannot be made with an IP68 rating. They can only be made with a splash resistant nano-coating for occasional spills and light rain or snow. I have not spilled anything on my Moto Z4, but have had a few spills on my Moto Z Force Droid and it survived. If you do spill anything on your Moto Z series phone, it is recommended not to connect any Moto Mods for at least 12 hours or more to prevent the Moto Mod connector from shorting out. <br /><br />Moto Mods:<br />As with every Moto Z series phone, Moto Z4 is also compatible with all Moto Mods, including Moto Gamepad. (However the unlocked version will not work with the 5G Moto Mod). I have had a few fellow Moto Z4 users complain that their Moto Z4 does not fit in the Moto Gamepad Mod. This however is not the case, as I have been using my Moto Gamepad quite often with my Moto Z4. I have used my Moto Z4 with many different Moto Mods, including Hasselblad True Zoom, Moto 360 Camera Moto Gamepad and multiple battery Mods. One common complaint about Moto Z4 and Moto Mods is due to the design of the Moto Z4, there is a small gap between the phone and the Mod. However, the Moto Mods stay attached and work without issue on this phone. I use Mods 24/7 and do not have any issues with them at all. <br /><br />Cameras:<br />Moto Z4 has 2 cameras built into it. Motorola chose not to include a dual lens camera on the back of Moto Z4. The Moto Z4 has "Quad Pixel Technology", which means that the camera takes 4 adjacent pixels and combines into one large one. Quad Pixel Technology allows for advanced low-light photography. I will write a more in-depth review about the cameras in a later article. Moto Z4 has a 48MP rear camera and a 25MP front-facing camera. There are multiple features in the cameras. My favorite feature of the camera is "Spot Color", which allows the user to choose one color to keep and the rest of the photo is in Black &amp; White.<br /><br />Night Vision allows the user to take photos in low light settings such as dawn and dusk. Also dimly lit rooms and areas of low light can be photographed with Night Vision. Night Vision can also be used in weather that is Overcast as well. <br /><div dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot;; font-size: 12pt; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"><br /></span></div><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Hb2IDSHQ95U/XcK_7g-b7QI/AAAAAAAAIx4/TYPKAvsUXkkiaNZ5HqVwqbxFYfOdsy9BQCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/IMG_20190816_195654440.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1200" data-original-width="1600" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-Hb2IDSHQ95U/XcK_7g-b7QI/AAAAAAAAIx4/TYPKAvsUXkkiaNZ5HqVwqbxFYfOdsy9BQCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/IMG_20190816_195654440.jpg" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;">Night Vision with Moto Z4 at sunset</td></tr></tbody></table><div dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot;; font-size: 12pt; vertical-align: baseline; white-space: pre-wrap;"><br /></span></div>Live Filters allows you to select a filter to use instead of the Normal setting.

It allows for different gestures and settings to allow you to enhance your experience with your Moto Z4. Many of these allow you to use alternative settings to make it easier for some users to use their Moto Z4. <br /><br />Quick Capture:<br />"Quick Capture" allows the user to hold the phone in one hand and twist their wrist twice to open the camera. This can work with other camera app and can even be used on a locked phone. You will have to unlock your Moto to access the Gallery. One of the best Moto Experiences I have used. It was created in 2013 with Moto X and DROID Ultra series. <br /><br />Fast Flashlight:<br />Allows the user to move the phone in a karate chop-like motion to turn the flashlight on and off. The flashlight is in the phone's rear camera flash. No flashlight, no problem!<br /><br />One Button Nav:<br />Allows the user to use certain gestures on one navigation bar instead of 3 navigation key. Has the HOME, BACK, AND RECENT APPS, all in one bar at the bottom of the screen. Tap once on it to access your HOME screen. Slide up to access RECENT APPS. Slide left to GO BACK. Tap and hold to access GOOGLE ASSISTANT. Slide to the right to go to your last used app.<br /><br />Three Finger Screenshot:<br />Allows the user to take a screenshot with 3 fingers. On Moto Z4, screenshots can also be taken by pressing and holding the POWER button and selecting screenshot. Screenshots can also be taken by pressing and holding POWER and VOLUME DOWN simultaneously. <br /><br />Screenshot Editor:<br />Allows the user to edit screenshots by writing or drawing on them, cropping and long screenshot. They can also be shared with others via SMS or other apps. <br /><br />Flip For "Do Not Disturb":<br />Allows the user to place the phone face down when they do not want to be disturbed during important tasks or events. <br /><br />Pick up to silence:<br />Allows the user to pick up their phone to silence the ringer<br /><br />Media controls:<br />Allows the user to use the volume keys to change songs when the screen is off<br /><br />Lift To Unlock:<br />Allows the user to pick up the phone and unlock the screen by looking at it with the phone's facial recognition software. <br /><br />Swipe to shrink:<br />Allows the user to render the screen smaller to make it easier to use the phone one-handed. <br /><br /><b>Moto Mods:</b><br />As mentioned above, Moto Mods are magnetic accessories that allow your Moto Z4 phone to do many different things, depending on what Mod is attached. <br /><br /><b>5G Capability (Verizon Version only):</b><br />Moto Z4 can connect to Verizon's 5G network, which is still in the development stages. However, currently, 5G only works in 2 cities in the USA (Chicago, Illinois, and Minneapolis, Minnesota). It is not very reliable at the moment and some users have expressed that it only works outdoors. Moto Z4 can only connect to 5G with the use of the Verizon 5G Moto Mod. Only the Verizon variant of Moto Z4 can use 5G. The unlocked version is currently unable to run on 5G. If you attach the 5G Moto Mod to the unlocked Moto Z4, it will not recognize it. In time, 5G will be more reliable and we will see more phones developed in the future with 5G capability. The Moto Z3 (a verizon exclusive), was the first smartphone to run on 5G which was made possible with the 5G Moto Mod. The unlocked version of Moto Z3, Moto Z3 Play is also not 5G compatible, in addition to the unlocked Moto Z4. <br /><br /><div dir="ltr" style="line-height: 1.38; margin-bottom: 0pt; margin-top: 0pt;"><b>Battery Life:</b></div>Moto Z4 comes with a 3600 mAh battery. It is said to get up to 2 days of battery life with mixed usage. The most my Moto Z4 has lasted is about 28 hours on a single charge. It lasts longer if you have battery Mods. I like to top off my Moto Z4's battery at various times throughout the day with my battery Mods and it can last me all day that way. I use different Mods throughout each day, depending on what I am doing. Studies have shown that its better to give your phone short charges throughout the day, instead of one or multiple long charges. I only do a long charge at night while I am sleeping, but only if its needed, since I keep my Moto Z4 charged throughout the day. <br /><br />Moto Z4 has a Type-C USB port, just like all the previous Moto Z phones, which is reversible, so you do not have to worry about which way you plug your Moto in. It does not support wireless charging, but can be charged wirelessly with the correct Moto Mod. <br /><br /><b>Android Software:</b><br />Moto Z4 comes with Android 9.0 (Pie), installed. The unlocked version comes with almost no bloatware and many Google apps pre-loaded. It is the closest to stock Android that you can get on an Android phone, without buying a Pixel phone. It is not confirmed as to whether or not the Moto Z4 will receive Android 10. Google chose to end the dessert codenames for their different versions of Android, therefore, Android 10 is the only name it will have. <br /><br />Android 9.0 is a very stable Android version, and has a beautiful user interface, and many apps can be used in "Dark Mode", which is easier on your eyes, especially if you use your phone in the evening. As someone with poor vision and the need to read on my phone before bed, Dark mode is easier on my eyes and doesn't keep me awake when I read on my Moto Z4 before bed, or when I am riding in the car at night, it doesn't distract anyone else in the car. Moto Z4 also has a blue light filter in quick settings. It is called "Night Light". <br /><br /><b>Digital Well-Being/Parental Controls/Accessibility:</b><br />A few years ago, Motorola introduced a new advertising campaign, called "Phone-Life Balance", which means not allowing your smartphone to take over your life. In today's digital age, its so easy to connect to the world with our smartphones, but just as easy to disconnect from the ones we love most and especially those we live with and interact with face-to-face. With Android 9.0, a feature called "Digital Well-Being, allows for you to monitor how you use your phone and set app timers and block notifications from apps that you feel would be too distracting. It can be used with Parental Controls which is through Google Family Link. <br /><br />Digital Well-Being can give you details about how many notifications that you receive, how many times you unlock your phone in a day, and also has a "Wind-Down" setting, which can be great for your bedtime routine so you don't stay up too late on your phone. This is a great feature for children who need a little extra help to learn healthy smartphone habits. We have important habits for our health, such as brushing our teeth and keeping our health in check, so your smartphone needs the same for it. Our phones work so hard for us, that they need to rest to, so they can help us be our best in moments that matter. (Motorola Solutions tagline). <br /><br />With Parental Controls, you have control over what your kids can do with their Moto Z4 and you can monitor their activity to make sure they are safe online and with texting. With the many reports of cyberbullying and the harmful psychological effects that go along with it, it's very important to keep your children safe online. You can also set restrictions regarding apps, monitor the amount of screen time and set time limits so they are not on their phone excessively. As a parent, you can teach and set good examples for healthy phone usage by doing the same. <br /><br />Some people have disabilities, including myself and need their Moto to help with disability related challenges, such as executive dysfunction, ADHD, nonverbal communication, etc For "Phone-Life Balance", it is done differently that accommodates the individual who has a disability. They can use their phone to help them remember important tasks, medications, appointments, and use certain apps for stimming. When I am in social situations , I limit my usage to apps that help me focus by coloring, drawing, or note taking. It actually helps improve my focus and lessens anxiety. Studies have shown that drawing and writing while listening helps people with short attention spans and anxiety. For people with disabilities and learning challenges, they cannot be 100% without their phone, as it helps them function. My Moto Z4 helps me in many areas and I make sure I take very good care of it, so it can continue to help me each and every day.<br /><br />There are many Accessibility options for users with disabilities. For users who are hard of hearing or impaired, closed-captioning is an option. As someone who is hard of hearing, myself, this is a great feature to have and from my own experience, it works very well. There is also "Mono Audio" which allows users who can only hear with one ear to use the phone with their ear that is able to hear. <br /><br />For users with poor vision or are visually impaired, you can use larger text and even have your Moto read what is on the screen through its voice. You can also have the phone vibrate with certain touches to help you "feel" your phone, with activities, such as typing, among many other tasks. There is also a feature called "Color Correction", which allows you to choose a color setting for users who are color-blind. People with different abilities can use Moto Z4 and adjust it to meet their needs. <br /><br /><b>Conclusion:</b><br />Moto Z4 is a great phone to have and has many features that people of all ages and abilities will enjoy. Moto Z4 is very family friendly and can help you keep your family members safe. It is recommended to use a case if you do not use Moto Mods as well as tempered glass. While there are many similar options available for other phones in addition to Moto Z4, if you want a phone that will not cost too much but want Moto Mods and a close to stock, Android Experience, Moto Z4 is a great option. We hope you enjoyed reading this in-depth review of Moto Z4. If 5G is a reason that you want to buy this phone, it is important to understand that 5G is still in the development stages and will most likely not be reliable for a lengthy period of time. If you choose a Moto Z4 for your next phone, we at Motorola hope you enjoy it for many years to come! </div>Droydlynn Mannhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04756807857297564323noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-34589507280869532512019-10-28T18:14:00.002-07:002019-10-28T18:27:41.936-07:00It's coming and you ain't ready!<a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-dg37o1tNj6A/XbeRXcpK1DI/AAAAAAABtqc/k2EGc8K7fsIq6X0s_LJeuQ3KjZlz6flnACK4BGAYYCw/s1600/motorola-razr-foldable-announcement.png" imageanchor="1"><img border="0" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-dg37o1tNj6A/XbeRXcpK1DI/AAAAAAABtqc/k2EGc8K7fsIq6X0s_LJeuQ3KjZlz6flnACK4BGAYYCw/s1600/motorola-razr-foldable-announcement.png" /></a><br /><br /><span style="font-size: large;">April 2013. That was the last time we saw the name RAZR released on a phone. Actually, two phones: RAZR D1 and RAZR D3. You might not remember them since they were only released in Latin America, but they were pretty popular and the predecessor to the Moto G franchise: a mid-tier&nbsp; phone with a competitive price.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">But that was more than 6 years ago, and it wasn't the proper way to end the most iconic phone franchise of the 2000s. RAZR should be about fashion, about being the star of the party and the coolest b*tch in town.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">That's why it's coming back, and you will be greatly impressed. Once you have it, you'll really be the coolest b*tch in town.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;"><b>Stay tuned...</b></span>Felipe Berhauhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05594391858563354395noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-59534542522150396722019-10-17T10:13:00.001-07:002019-10-17T10:13:26.339-07:00Remember when you only had 5.5MB of storage?<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-B01zUwrdcpQ/WQs-4VXTXqI/AAAAAAAAykw/8u5OxVQ_EN4YNRBkAoVdmkupNvy41V9OgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/motorola-razr-v3i-2.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="484" data-original-width="1600" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-B01zUwrdcpQ/WQs-4VXTXqI/AAAAAAAAykw/8u5OxVQ_EN4YNRBkAoVdmkupNvy41V9OgCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/motorola-razr-v3i-2.jpg" /></a></div><br /><br />Remember that? You could only take 30 pictures and have like one or two mp3 songs. Nowadays, phones come with at least 32/64GB storage and we still have the same problem. Even 128GB phones run out of memory.<br /><br />But maybe that's because we don't keep the best like we did before. Now we keep everything, even if it's boring content, or duplicates, or memes we will never use again.<br /><br />Anyway, just wanted to talk about the days of the 2004-2006 Moto phones that had little memory and we had to "hack" them to delete carrier files and stock ringtones. That would allow the phones to have 7.8MB. So crazy!<br /><br />There was an extreme hack that would make the RAZR V3 get up to 10MB of storage. That's even crazier.<br /><br />Felipe Berhauhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05594391858563354395noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-17446703364012326102019-10-09T20:08:00.000-07:002019-10-28T18:27:46.709-07:00Is the Motorola ONE family good for Motorola?<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-zR8KZ4lxiXU/XZ6gJPRN92I/AAAAAAABtJM/o06OvezwI_gtBrddC42jm_C9dM0SqPscwCLcBGAsYHQ/s1600/EEty7KzWkAE-_HD.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="332" data-original-width="572" height="371" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-zR8KZ4lxiXU/XZ6gJPRN92I/AAAAAAABtJM/o06OvezwI_gtBrddC42jm_C9dM0SqPscwCLcBGAsYHQ/s640/EEty7KzWkAE-_HD.jpg" width="640" /></a></div><br /><br />September 2018 marked the release of the first Motorola ONE phone, a device which was futuristic, good for sales, but at the same time (personal opinion) lacked the iconic brand value Motorola offers. It just felt like a Huawei, Xiaomi or whatever and not a real Motorola device.<br /><br />Then, a series of devices came, like the One Power, One Vision, One Action. All of them featured great features at an affordable price, also offering something I don't really care about, but I know many of you do, which is timely Android updates. This family felt like it was just released to capture some mass market share who don't really know about the value of the Motorola brand... and it kinda worked. The ONE family has proved to be a success in Latin America and Europe.<br /><br />This feeling of lack of brand identity changed completely almost 12 months later, when the <b>Motorola ONE Zoom</b> was released. This is the higher end phone in this family, and does show the beautiful spirit or identity of the Motorola brand. I don't know if it's because of its beautiful colors, or the rear logo that lights up, but the phone is unlike any other member of the ONE family.<br /><br />Today, Motorola released yet another ONE, the Macro. It's a phone sold for an incredibly low price, with a macro camera (with AI and other features). The Macro lacks this identity I was talking about, but again, this family is helping Motorola regain market share and make profits. In fact, the company is at its best financial situation in a decade.<br /><br />What we can hope and should demand as fans, is that the ONE family's identity doesn't impact on the other Moto lines, so each different segment of the market can enjoy the best of both worlds. Although I'm using the ONE Zoom now, and I love it, there's nothing like the premium feeling of a Moto Z2, Z3, X4 or even a G7.<br /><br /><b>What do you think? Do you like this product family or would rather stick to a Moto G or Z?</b><br /><br /><br /><br />Felipe Berhauhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05594391858563354395noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-12186634639362512292019-05-15T18:33:00.000-07:002019-05-15T18:33:07.030-07:00Meet the new Motorola ONE Vision<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Nqjvd3Z7tWk/XNy8ZvQOWhI/AAAAAAABlBY/lTdbmwjfIGQKPq7FlpcSiMYV1d3tO6hyACLcBGAs/s1600/D6oQ17sUwAAQDb6.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="675" data-original-width="1200" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Nqjvd3Z7tWk/XNy8ZvQOWhI/AAAAAAABlBY/lTdbmwjfIGQKPq7FlpcSiMYV1d3tO6hyACLcBGAs/s1600/D6oQ17sUwAAQDb6.png" /></a></div><span style="font-size: large;"><span id="goog_1508227494"></span><span id="goog_1508227495"></span>Hello Moto indeed! Motorola is back after some months of being quiet and fans are pretty excited about this new ONE Vision device.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">As you can tell by its name, it features Android ONE, which means 3 years worth of security updates and the newest Android version at launch.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">Also from its name, you may be wondering what VISION means... well it comes with a <b>6.3" 21:9 Full HD+</b> display, which will be excellent for watching films and YouTube videos. And it also comes with a HUUUUGEEEEEE <b>48MP camera</b> with some AI and night vision features which will make your pictures look as sharp as they can.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">All of this is powered by a Samsung Exynos processor and a <b>3,500mAH</b> battery. Oh, and you don't have to worry about storage, as it comes with <b>128GB</b> on board plus a microSD slot.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">The ONE Vision launched in Latin America and will also come to Europe and Asia in the coming weeks.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><b><a href="https://blog.motorola.com/2019/05/15/motorola-one-vision-lifes-highlights-even-in-low-light/"><span style="font-size: large;">Source</span></a></b>Felipe Berhauhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05594391858563354395noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-60068746212481916442019-04-13T10:36:00.000-07:002019-04-13T10:36:26.626-07:00Happy 90th Birthday, MOTOROLA!<div style="background: #ffcc68;"><img border="0" data-original-height="630" data-original-width="1200" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-NMvafaoLbjM/WV77SgY4MCI/AAAAAAAA0wA/wvgBtws7ne45Dy1LpMRC9qA2Q30q20b4gCLcBGAs/s1600/19693792_806746232818271_882924555310346956_o.png" /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div style="color: black; line-height: 25px; margin: 5%; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: large;"><b>Today is a very special day for all of us.</b> It's a day of celebration.

We did get a very nice-looking Moto G7 family, but Moto hasn't really interacted with its fans or launched a cool marketing campaign since at least September 2018 when it celebrated 90 years (and I still think they should have done more to celebrate back then).</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">But maybe, it's all just part of&nbsp; a plan. That's why the title of this post is "Calm before the storm". Maybe, just maybe, something huge is coming. Something classic, yet innovative. Something retro, yet cutting-edge.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">Have this calm, or rather boring months happened before? Yes, it did happen. Back in 2009 before the DROID launched. Back in 2013 before the Moto X launched.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;"><b>Is it history repeating?

I visited Motorola's headquarters<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-WXlRdOHj93A/XIB27l5CAbI/AAAAAAABioM/WqXvOq2D0TQmN9cwdaslUNDFOz5VUjy4ACLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_20190228_145556334.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1200" data-original-width="1600" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-WXlRdOHj93A/XIB27l5CAbI/AAAAAAABioM/WqXvOq2D0TQmN9cwdaslUNDFOz5VUjy4ACLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_20190228_145556334.jpg" /></a></div><br />Some days ago, I accomplished something I had dreamt of since being a little kid. I remember being 11 and sending letters to Motorola asking to visit their headquarters and/or eventually work there. Well, 12 years later and I'm still the craziest fan in the world, and they know me, so I organized a quick visit to Chicago just to see how much Motorola is still in the windy city.<br /><br />So I got into the Merchandise Mart. It's such a huge building with so much history. Went to the 18th floor and Moto's lobby was there. My tour started with some cool ads from the past and some Motorola History bits which you'll see below. Also got a nice chat with some Motorolans :)<br /><br />Thanks, Motorola Mobility for making my dream come true and letting me in (and for all the cool stuff I was showed). Here are some nice pics for all the devoted fans out there who love Moto:<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-g9gKgWu-Mmw/XIB4Ejike5I/AAAAAAABiog/02x4vBfePn8DIIpR9dp2iSmLcV03np3JACLcBGAs/s1600/IMG_20190227_105456911_HDR.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em;

When I created this website and the social media fanpages back in 2017, I never expected it would grow so much. In 18 months, 2.5 million people have visited this site and I've been reached out by many fans around the world, asking for questions, giving feedback, or simply telling their stories about their love for Motorola.<br /><br />Our original name was Motorola Fans. This named suited us very well and it was an easy way for people to know the aim of our community. This was also because we were partners with another fan community, also named Motorola Fans. Due to big differences in the way of approaching to fans and content posting, we parted ways, but for a year or so, we both kept the same name.<br /><br />This was very hard to understand, and since the other fan community posts leaks, 18+ content and lots of criticism, we sometimes got in trouble for things they were doing, and that's not fair.<br /><br />So I want to welcome you to <b>Motorola Lovers</b>. We love Moto no matter what, giving constructive criticism when needed and always posting high quality content.<br /><br />Hope you enjoy!<br /><br />Find us at:<br /><a href="http://facebook.com/motorolalovers">Facebook</a><br /><a href="http://instagram.com/motorolalovers">Instagram</a><br /><a href="http://twitter.com/motorolalovers">Twitter</a><br /><br /><br />Cheers,<br />Felipe BerhauFelipe Berhauhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05594391858563354395noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-45529633880427060562018-08-16T20:30:00.000-07:002018-08-16T20:41:47.622-07:00Thank you, Jan Huckfeldt<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-VEzL-twaaD8/W3Y7wiKQ1II/AAAAAAABL3E/eqvEOUb-TrQ0-dETubcKmokIu9OQx6DEgCLcBGAs/s1600/ZR8oFy9ngf.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-VEzL-twaaD8/W3Y7wiKQ1II/AAAAAAABL3E/eqvEOUb-TrQ0-dETubcKmokIu9OQx6DEgCLcBGAs/s1600/ZR8oFy9ngf.jpg" width="100%" /></a></div><br />I would like to dedicate this article to Motorola's former CMO, Jan Huckfeldt. He was in charge of the Marketing and Communications team for the last two years and recently left the company.<br /><br />In his two years as CMO, Motorola regained half of its name it had lost, and with this came an increase in brand recognition it has lost over the years. In these years, Motorola became a cool, fun brand, visually, and a brand that started to care about its rich history once again.<br /><br />But that's not all, Jan is one of those cool cases of people in big roles within a company that take time to listen to consumers, specially crazy, annoying fans like me (and I can be annoying as hell).<br /><br />In the midst of the whole "Lenovo Moto" nightmare, in which I went crazy and started bombarding every Lenovo and Motorola employee from the US, UK, Argentina, Brazil and China, I e-mailed Jan explaining my view as the biggest Motorola fan in the world and how certain brand elements could co-exist with that current strategy.<br /><br />I told him about our love for the batwing logo, for the brand's full name, and how Motorola's marketing material had always shown 11:35AM on the product's screen until 2016 when it was changed to something else (11:35AM was the time Martin Cooper made the first mobile phone call on April 3rd, 1973).<br /><br />He soon replied, agreeing with many of the things I wrote about, and those later came into reality. And that's so fascinating, because you'd never expect any company's CMO reply an e-mail to you, and let alone apply many of those suggestions.<br /><br />Since then, we exchanged e-mails from time to time, but as time passed by, Motorola's marketing material/decisions were so right and great that there was nothing else to suggest anymore: the full brand name came back in 2017, the batwing took a central role on marketing, 11:35 came back to all marketing material, and they even brought HelloMoto back from the dead. It was all just perfect!<br /><br />There are three main reasons why I love Motorola: marketing/visuals, product design and heritage. Under Jan's leadership, the marketing decisions and care for the company's heritage were all I could dream about. These were definitely the most exciting years to be a fan.<br /><br />So thanks for everything, Jan. We hope you have lots of success with your next projects and we will always look back at these crazy years and remember your great leadership.<br /><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-5gxt7LfUpjo/WKD1ASS91oI/AAAAAAAAuyo/sD56DCrOD90dT-Gg_dIbhRL3pFyXwj0RQCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/wallpaper2.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1030" data-original-width="1600" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-5gxt7LfUpjo/WKD1ASS91oI/AAAAAAAAuyo/sD56DCrOD90dT-Gg_dIbhRL3pFyXwj0RQCPcBGAYYCw/s1600/wallpaper2.png" /></a></div><br />Felipe Berhauhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05594391858563354395noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-26495940307822654332018-07-27T12:57:00.003-07:002018-07-27T12:57:39.986-07:0014th anniversary of the iconic Motorola RAZR<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-jQanz78gqs4/WJyprXqXbPI/AAAAAAAAuog/4deEGFAOrW05WXuEHSWZHu4oMKgp2W9bgCLcB/s1600/Sin-t%25C3%25ADtulo-1.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-jQanz78gqs4/WJyprXqXbPI/AAAAAAAAuog/4deEGFAOrW05WXuEHSWZHu4oMKgp2W9bgCLcB/s1600/Sin-t%25C3%25ADtulo-1.png" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: large;">The RAZR is a phone that will go down as one of the most iconic devices of all time.

If you are following our blog here at Motorola Fans, you are probably aware that Motorola invented the cell phone and they also make the most unique of phones. Motorola also has durable phones with great quality.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div style="text-align: left;"><span style="font-size: large;">Durability has always been a priority for Motorola.&nbsp; Many manufacturers make so many different devices from the same brand, that it can be overwhelming to choose the phone that fits your needs. If you're looking for a unique Motorola phone, here are your options for the Moto Z brand of smartphones:</span></div></div><div align="left"><span style="font-size: large;"></span></div><div align="left"><span style="font-size: large;"></span></div><div align="left"><b><span style="font-size: x-large;"></span></b><br /><b><span style="font-size: x-large;">What is Moto Z?</span></b><br /><b><span style="font-size: x-large;"></span></b></div><div align="left"><b><span style="font-size: x-large;"></span></b><b></b><span style="font-size: x-large;"></span></div><div align="left"><span style="font-size: large;">Moto Z is the most unique series of phones available on the market today. This is due to Moto Mods, which are case-like accessories that attach magnetically to any Moto Z series smartphone. Moto Z's are the most expensive phones, not just because of the purchase price, but also, the Moto Mods can be a bit pricey, depending on which Mod you purchase.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">They are very useful, though, and some provide a sense of style for your Moto Z, to match your outfit and personality.&nbsp; Some Style Mods also allow for wireless charging. Currently, both the Moto Z series and Z2 series feature a large 5.5" screen. When the Z2 series was built, they kept the screen size the same as their predecessor to continue accommodating the Moto Mods system.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">The Moto Mods system is said to be supported for at least 3 generations. All Moto Z's have a special connector on the back of them that makes the Moto Mods communicate with the phone to make them work with it. Most Moto Mods have a matching connector that lines up with the one on the phone.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">The Moto Mods are held in place with strong, smartphone-safe magnets. There are different kinds of Moto Mods from cameras and loudspeakers, to a gamepad to a pico projector.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Yk8TKU9zh-A/WuejIVKiUrI/AAAAAAAAGTY/9lCKR2TVFKIXbT3VNus-woQPR26_GlDhgCLcBGAs/s1600/moto-z2-force-NA-blk-1000.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" data-original-height="1000" data-original-width="1000" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-Yk8TKU9zh-A/WuejIVKiUrI/AAAAAAAAGTY/9lCKR2TVFKIXbT3VNus-woQPR26_GlDhgCLcBGAs/s1600/moto-z2-force-NA-blk-1000.png" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><div>Moto Z2 Force</div><div>(Photo courtesy of motorola.com)</div></td></tr></tbody></table><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><b><span style="font-size: x-large;"></span></b><br /><b><span style="font-size: x-large;">Moto Z /Z Force/Z2 Force</span></b><br /><span style="font-size: large;">There are several different versions of Moto Z. The original Moto Z is almost identical to the Moto Z Force Droid Edition, except it has slightly fewer features and a screen that is not shatterproof. Moto Z has a 13 MP camera, whereas Moto Z Force has a 21MP camera. Both have flashes on the front and back cameras and a 5MP front-facing camera.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">The Moto Z2 Force has dual 12MP cameras on its rear, with one camera that has Depth Of Field. Moto Z2 Force's front-facing camera also has a wide angle lens.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span></div><div align="left"></div><div align="left"><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;">Moto Z, and Moto Z Force both feature 5.5" Quad HD AMOLED displays, whereas the Moto Z2 Force features a 5.5 Quad HD POLED display. The difference between the original Moto Z's and Moto Z2's displays are the intensity of color resolution. Moto Z has a Corning Gorilla Glass screen, which is scratch resistant, but not shatterproof.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">Moto Z Force/ Moto Z2 Force feature Moto Shattershield, which is a layered screen made of hard plastic that looks like glass, that is shatterproof. It is advertised as being guaranteed not to crack or shatter for at least 4 years from the time of purchase. We at Motorola Fans do not encourage consumers to be careless with their phones, regardless if the phone is shatterproof or not.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">The Moto Z Force phones are shatterproof, but they are not shockproof, so for consumers working or living in situations that are risky for their cellphones, it is still recommended to use a case. Moto Shattershield is not scratch resistant, so we recommend a screen protector. There are different options, including flexible glass which works similar to Moto Shattershield, as both flex upon impact, rather than cracking or shattering. </span></div><div align="left"></div><div align="left"></div><div align="left"><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;">The Moto Z2 Force features "One Button Nav", which allows you to turn off the on-screen navigation keys to allow more room on your screen when doing things that might require more screen, such as playing games or watching videos. The original Moto Z series does not feature this.</span></div><div align="left"><span style="font-size: large;"></span></div><div align="left"><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;">The Moto Z, Moto Z Force, and Moto Z2 Force are advertised as having over 24 hours of battery, depending on usage. They also feature Turbo Power, which allows for faster charging than older smartphones. The Moto Z features a 2,600 mAh battery, Moto Z Force has a 3,500 mAh battery, and the Moto Z2 Force has a 2730 mAh battery. The Moto Z2 Force has a smaller battery than the Moto Z Force, but the battery in it is said to be better optimized, like the Moto Z2 Play's battery.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;">Moto Z is a great option for anyone who wants a phone with lesser features, but also the Moto Mods experience. Moto Z Force/Moto Z2 Force are great options for anyone who wants a shatterproof screen,&nbsp; and the extra features it offers, especially the camera.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span></div><div align="left"></div><div align="left"></div><div align="left"><table align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" class="tr-caption-container" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; text-align: center;"><tbody><tr><td style="text-align: center;"><a href="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YEHV5yaEyYk/WueleWP4wtI/AAAAAAAAGTk/rcSMysPSfDovvLITVBqZQa2bF2A1sIg5gCLcBGAs/s1600/Moto-Z2-Play.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;"><img border="0" data-original-height="540" data-original-width="750" src="https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-YEHV5yaEyYk/WueleWP4wtI/AAAAAAAAGTk/rcSMysPSfDovvLITVBqZQa2bF2A1sIg5gCLcBGAs/s1600/Moto-Z2-Play.jpg" /></a></td></tr><tr><td class="tr-caption" style="text-align: center;"><div>Moto Z2 Play, Moto Z Play, and Moto Z</div></td></tr></tbody></table><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><b><span style="font-size: x-large;">Moto Z Play/Moto Z2 Play:</span></b><br /><span style="font-size: large;">Moto Z Play is the most affordable of all the Moto Z series, and they do not have as many features as the Moto Z Force. They are great for anyone who wants a modular phone, but with minimal features, and a phone that is affordable, even on a payment plan.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;">Moto Z Play has a 16MP rear camera, whereas the Moto Z2 Play has a 12MP rear camera with Autofocus Pixels, which is an improved type of Autofocus in smartphones. It uses more pixels than previous smartphone cameras to accurately focus on the subject.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;">Unlike the Moto Z Force series Moto Z2 Play, doesn't have a shatterproof screen, instead, it has a beautiful 5.5" POLED display with Gorilla Glass, which is a scratch-resistant glass commonly used on phone screens across nearly all phone manufacturers, including Motorola. Moto Z Play has a 5.5" AMOLED display, which has a slightly lower resolution than Moto Z2 Play.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;">Moto Z2 Play also features "On Button Nav", like Moto Z2 Force has. Moto Z Play doesn't feature this either. Both Moto Z Play and Moto Z2 Play include 32GB of internal storage. They can be upgraded to 2TB of external storage, via MicroSD, but currently, only 200GB is the highest capacity MicroSD card available. The Moto Z Force series can also be upgraded up to 2TB on a MicroSD card.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;">Moto Z2 Play has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 626 octa-core processor, whereas the Moto Z Play has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 quad-core processor. The Moto Z2 Play has a much faster processor than the Moto Z Play, but the battery is smaller and better optimized than the Moto Z Play. Moto Z2 Play has a 3,000 mAh battery, whereas Moto Z Play has a 3,510 mAh battery, but bigger batteries don't always mean better battery life.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;">Moto Z Play/Moto Z2 are great options for anyone who wants a mid-range phone with fewer features than the Moto Z Force series but longer battery life, but also want the Moto Mods experience.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"></span><br /><b><span style="font-size: x-large;">Which Moto Z is the best for me?</span></b><br /><span style="font-size: large;">All Moto Z's have their strengths and weaknesses just like we do. The Moto Z that you choose is a matter of personal preference and what features you are looking for in your next smartphone. Do you want something ultra-durable that won't crack or shatter?&nbsp;</span><span style="font-size: large;">Do you want longer battery life? A better smartphone camera? Are you planning on purchasing and using Moto Mods?&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">You don't have to have Moto Mods to use a Moto Z phone, but they will enhance your user experience. Also, all Moto Z's work similar to each other so if you have owned one before and are planning on upgrading to a newer generation Moto Z, it will have many familiar features, or if you have had other Moto phones, it will be a similar and hopefully better experience for you. We at Motorola Fans hope that you enjoy your shiny new Moto Z phone for years to come. They are unique just like you!</span></div>Droydlynn Mannhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/04756807857297564323noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-19644883248593732052018-04-19T20:24:00.000-07:002018-04-19T20:24:22.473-07:00Motorola by the numbers: #1 unlocked phone brand, #2 in Latin America, top 5 in US and UK!<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-wOcNdYrLUKQ/WtlbeDmGCPI/AAAAAAABCPU/qSBAa2oBxPUGsMuf_Esys95u7tRgNjuRwCLcBGAs/s1600/Sin%2Bt%25C3%25ADtulo.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="888" data-original-width="1572" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-wOcNdYrLUKQ/WtlbeDmGCPI/AAAAAAABCPU/qSBAa2oBxPUGsMuf_Esys95u7tRgNjuRwCLcBGAs/s1600/Sin%2Bt%25C3%25ADtulo.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: large;">Motorola increased its market share in every single country in Latin America during 2017.</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-cLw9AFxLltk/Wtlb5IVL8pI/AAAAAAABCPY/JXUBm0ADNwIk4PViJXcz-mWUhqb9FRPaACLcBGAs/s1600/Sin%2Bt%25C3%25ADtulo2.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-cLw9AFxLltk/Wtlb5IVL8pI/AAAAAAABCPY/JXUBm0ADNwIk4PViJXcz-mWUhqb9FRPaACLcBGAs/s1600/Sin%2Bt%25C3%25ADtulo2.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: large;">The company grew 3X of the industry standard in the region.</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-UHpFZZbjKWk/WtlcK_fzKnI/AAAAAAABCPg/0QKnnWmFCgQc3rR3EqCjxpbnnZ53WuPewCLcBGAs/s1600/Sin%2Bt%25C3%25ADtulo2.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-UHpFZZbjKWk/WtlcK_fzKnI/AAAAAAABCPg/0QKnnWmFCgQc3rR3EqCjxpbnnZ53WuPewCLcBGAs/s1600/Sin%2Bt%25C3%25ADtulo2.png" /></a></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: large;">Motorola is #4 in India. 400 kiosks have opened in the country.</span></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><a href="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2hWvLNctUFo/WtlcWD1LWyI/AAAAAAABCPo/kaKHPW7T_-klqJTbHqK7J69lNbueBP_WACLcBGAs/s1600/Sin%2Bt%25C3%25ADtulo2.png" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em; text-align: center;"><img border="0" data-original-height="900" data-original-width="1600" src="https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-2hWvLNctUFo/WtlcWD1LWyI/AAAAAAABCPo/kaKHPW7T_-klqJTbHqK7J69lNbueBP_WACLcBGAs/s1600/Sin%2Bt%25C3%25ADtulo2.png" /></a><br /><br /><div style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size: large;">Motorola grew 50% during 2017 in the USA and is the #1 unlocked brand in the country.</span></div><br />Felipe Berhauhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05594391858563354395noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-69362704810561806652018-04-19T20:08:00.000-07:002018-04-19T20:08:09.258-07:00Motorola launches 6 smartphones during its HELLO YOU event!<img src="https://blog.motorola.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/04/Moto_BlogPost_Anniversary_Blue_updated.jpg" /><br /><span style="font-size: large;">Motorola surprised us yesterday with the launch of six devices aimed for every single fan of the iconic brand.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br />Moto launched the G6 and E5 series in its regular, Play and Plus variants for each product line. The launch event took place in Brazil with a great live stream (finally, Moto rarely does live streams) and the company talked about its huge growth in Latin America, Europe and the USA.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">Motorola's G line, which sold 30 million devices in Brazil alone, welcomed the Moto G6, with a 5.7" 18:9 display and dual 5MP and 12MP rear cameras with an exquisite design that looks like the Moto X4...all glass and metal.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">The G6 Plus is an upgrade over this, with a 5.9" Max Vision display, a Snapdragon 630 processor, 64GB of internal storage and a 3,200mAH battery.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">Moto G6 Play is the more affordable and compact option here, with a beautiful design and a rear fingerprint scanner, a crazy huge 4,000mAH battery, a 1.4GHz Quad-Core processor and a 13MP camera.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><img alt="Image result for moto e5" src="https://i.gadgets360cdn.com/large/Moto_E5_Plus_1524162218400.png?output-quality=80" /><br /><br /><span style="font-size: large;">BUT, that's not all!&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">Motorola launched the Moto E5 series. The E5 comes with a 5.7" Max Vision display, 2GB of RAM, 13MP camera, and the best of the newest Moto Experiences.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">The E5 Plus ups these specs, with the inclusion of a 6" display, an insane 5,000mAH battery, a 12MP camera and a fingerprint scanner under the iconic Motorola logo.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">Last but not least, the E5 Play features a Quad-Core processor, an 8MP camera, 2GB of RAM, and a 2,800mAH battery.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">As always, you can check <b><a href="http://motorola.com/">motorola.com</a></b> for the full specs.</span><br /><br />Felipe Berhauhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05594391858563354395noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-86194361193380656352018-04-05T08:13:00.001-07:002018-04-05T08:13:32.727-07:00Motorola Home launches a new Alexa-powered Phone and Speaker<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/--91C-CediJs/WsY8-V_EyWI/AAAAAAABB1Y/I0MzisfbfoAZgyB9784JXbCnR7zr77VYgCLcBGAs/s1600/Captura.PNG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" data-original-height="678" data-original-width="355" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/--91C-CediJs/WsY8-V_EyWI/AAAAAAABB1Y/I0MzisfbfoAZgyB9784JXbCnR7zr77VYgCLcBGAs/s1600/Captura.PNG" /></a></div><br />Felipe Berhauhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05594391858563354395noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-11678386365454690562018-04-03T11:35:00.000-07:002018-04-02T10:47:20.166-07:00Motorola's ICONIC History Journey: from 1928 to 2018<div style="display: none;"><a href="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-dCjZm2BPeIU/WsJsongnYHI/AAAAAAABBvk/_pd8dFn2z7s56I_fuXu5A5rB2JkO9x75ACLcBGAs/s1600/3.png" imageanchor="1" ><img border="0" src="https://2.bp.blogspot.com/-dCjZm2BPeIU/WsJsongnYHI/AAAAAAABBvk/_pd8dFn2z7s56I_fuXu5A5rB2JkO9x75ACLcBGAs/s1600/3.png" data-original-width="1000" data-original-height="1000" /></a></div><div class="piktowrapper-embed" pikto-uid="23437126-motorola-1928-1970-copy" style="height: 300px; position: relative;"><div class="embed-loading-overlay" style="height: 100%; position: absolute; text-align: center; width: 100%;"><img alt="Loading..." src="https://magic.piktochart.com/loading.gif" style="margin-top: 100px;" width="60px" /><br /><div style="font-family: &quot;lato&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , &quot;arial&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: 16px; font-weight: 600; margin: 0; padding: 0;">Loading...</div></div><div class="pikto-canvas-wrap"><div class="pikto-canvas"></div></div></div><script>(function(d){var js, id="pikto-embed-js", ref=d.getElementsByTagName("script")[0];if (d.getElementById(id)) { return;}js=d.createElement("script"); js.id=id; js.async=true;js.src="https://magic.piktochart.com/assets/embedding/embed.js";ref.parentNode.insertBefore(js, ref);}(document));</script>Felipe Berhauhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05594391858563354395noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-187322060032583594.post-46250638697839351722018-04-02T10:43:00.000-07:002018-04-02T10:43:01.921-07:00Motorola Fans tribute to Martin Cooper and the DynaTAC<div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9NLKs5P-YJw/WOJRQaTLkiI/AAAAAAAAxeI/oKD_c7g7zXgpBeoD7ud52aYELMtA5o77wCLcB/s1600/47ca262dbaa3867ea9d715bd0c47abde.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-9NLKs5P-YJw/WOJRQaTLkiI/AAAAAAAAxeI/oKD_c7g7zXgpBeoD7ud52aYELMtA5o77wCLcB/s1600/47ca262dbaa3867ea9d715bd0c47abde.jpg" /></a></div><div style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: large;">Motorola announced the first portable cellular phone 44 years ago and <a href="http://www.wklepy.icu/2017/04/motorola-celebrates-phone-call-anniversary.html">we can't stop talking about it</a>.
