Looking to buy Motorola? Here’s our ultimate guide to all 2017 Moto smartphones

Why it matters to you

The Moto X4 starts at £400, launches on October 26 If you’re looking for a well-rounded smartphone running a close-to-pure version of Android, Motorola may be your best bet. Trouble is, the company has produced many new models in the past year that the lineup can be quite confusing at times, even for seasoned veterans.

Our guide to Motorola’s 2017 smartphones take you through the portfolio, starting with the £130 Moto E4 Plus all the way up to the top-of-the-line modular Moto Z2 Force.

Moto E4

Pricing: £130, £100 (Amazon Prime Exclusive with ads) Who it’s for: Someone who needs a basic smartphone and nothing more In terms of specs and price, the Moto E4 is the bare minimum the company offers.

That said, you still get a respectable handset for the money. The E4 comes with Qualcomm’s low-end Snapdragon 425 system-on-chip (Sprint[1] buyers get a slightly more powerful 427 processor), 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a MicroSD card slot for additional space. The display is a 5-inch LCD with a 1,280 x 720 resolution, and the main camera is rated at 8 megapixels.

It proved average in our testing tests, which isn’t particularly surprising given the low, low price of the hardware. And you get a front-mounted fingerprint sensor for your trouble, though — a welcome inclusion.

Moto E4 Review[2]

Moto E4 Plus

Pricing: £180 (16GB); £200 (32GB); £140/£160 (Amazon Prime Exclusive with ads) Who it’s for: Someone who wants the best battery life, and doesn’t need a powerful phone

We called the Moto E4 Plus the best smartphone under £200 when we reviewed it earlier in the summer, and that’s mostly down to one standout feature: The almost un-killable battery. Motorola stuffed a 5,000mAh unit into the E4 Plus’ 5.5-inch chassis. Coupled with the phone’s frugal Snapdragon 427 processor and 720p display, the E4 delivers incredible longevity on a charge.

It easily lasts two days without breaking a sweat, and three is certainly doable. We say if you have the extra £50 to burn, spring for the Plus over the standard E4 — you’ll have a budget phone that does something even the four-times more expensive Apple iPhone 7, Samsung Galaxy S8, and Google Pixel 2 XL[3][4][5][6]

Moto G5 and G5S

Pricing: 230 euros (G5); 250 euros (G5S); U.S. Moto G5S pricing TBA

Who it’s for: Someone who wants a full HD display in a compact package Here’s where things get a little confusing. The standard Moto G5 isn’t available in the U.S., but the slightly improved Moto G5S is.

Both phones sport Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 430 processor, though the G5S features a slightly improved battery (3,000mAh versus 2,800mAh); a 16-megapixel rear camera to instead of the regular model’s 13-megapixel shooter; and a metal body instead of plastic. Otherwise, they’re the same — both have a 5.2-inch 1080p display and 2GB of RAM. To be honest, there’s not much reason to go with the G5 or G5S in the context of Motorola’s larger lineup.

The processors aren’t noticeably faster, and the designs aren’t radically different. The batteries are substantially less than what Motorola phones like the E4 Plus offers too, and the cameras are average at best. Bottom line?

You’re best spending a bit more (or a bit less) on something else.

Moto G5 Plus and G5S Plus

Pricing: £230 (G5 Plus, 32GB/2GB); £280 (G5 Plus, 64GB/4GB); £280/£350 (G5S Plus, 32GB/64GB) Who it’s for: Someone who wants a jack-of-all-trades midrange phone under £300 But what of the G5S Plus?

The £280/£350 phone may be tough to find outside of Europe and Latin America right now, but it’s worth tracking down. The G5S Plus is slightly bigger than the regular G5 Plus, with a 5.5-inch display at the same resolution. It’s also got dual cameras, both rated at 13-megapixels, replacing the G5 Plus’ single 12-megapixel shooter.

The base model of G5S Plus has an extra gigabyte of RAM for a total of 3GB, though 4GB is an option. The Moto G5 Plus, the G5S Plus’s predecessor, was one of our favorite budget smartphones this year. For £230, you get a Snapdragon 625 processor — a step up from the 430 found in the regular G5 and G5S — as well as a 5.2-inch 1080p display and 2GB of RAM.

If you spend £50 more, you can have double the storage and RAM, making the G5 Plus one of the best values under the £300 mark.

Moto G5 Plus Review[7]

Moto X4 / Android One Moto X4

Pricing: 399 euros (64GB); £400 (64GB) Who it’s for: Someone who wants flagship-quality dual cameras in an otherwise midrange device Once upon a time, the Moto X was billed as Motorola’s flagship.

That designation has shifted to the modular Moto Z in recent years, but now the company is reviving the Moto X[8] as a midrange product. From the outside, it looks nothing like the previous versions: You’ll find chunky bezels, super-reflective glass construction, and dual cameras. On the other hand, in terms of specs, it may be too similar to the Moto G5 Plus to really make a splash.

The processor is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 630, the chip maker’s newest midrange silicon. It should only offer a negligible bump in day-to-day performance over the outgoing 625. Alongside are 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage, IP68 water resistance, and a dual-sensor rear camera with an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens.

In the U.S., the Moto X4 is the first non-Pixel/Nexus device available on Project Fi[9], Google’s pay-as-you-go MVNO (mobile virtual network operator). The £400 Android One Moto X4[10], which is available from the Project Fi website[11], comes with free unlimited Google Photos storage, and up to £165 in credits for subscribers who trade in an old Nexus device. For a limited time, Google’s offering an additional £50 in bill credit for folks who start start a trade-in before October 5.

If Fi isn’t your style, the Moto X4 is available from Best Buy, B&H, Fry’s, Jet.com, Motorola.com, Newegg, Republic Wireless, and Ting starting at £400. It begins shipping October 26. It’s £70 cheaper on Prime Exclusive Phones (£330), Amazon’s discount phone program, but there’s a catch: You’ll have to put up with ads on the lockscreen and sign up for Amazon’s £99-a-year Prime program.

Moto X4 Hands-On Review[12]

Moto Z2 Play

Pricing: £408 (32GB, Verizon exclusive); £500 (64GB) Who it’s for: Someone who wants a modular phone at the cheapest price The Moto Z2 Play brings the modular capabilities of the company’s Moto Mods[13] platform down to an affordable cost.

With a Snapdragon 626 processor alongside 3GB of RAM, it’s not necessarily more powerful than the G5 Plus, but it certainly is longer-lasting despite a 3,000mAh battery. The system Motorola has devised for its Moto Mods is incredibly user-friendly — they simply snap onto the back magnetically. Some are a bit too expensive, especially the Hasselblad TrueZoom[14] camera mod and InstaShare[15] projector.

But if the idea speaks to you and you don’t need a device with the fastest processor, the Z2 Play is a solid choice. If you want to learn about more Moto Mods, here’s a list of our favorites[16].

Moto Z2 Play Review[17]

Moto Z2 Force

Pricing: £720 Who it’s for: Someone who wants a modular phone with flagship performance

Though they may mostly share the same name, the Moto Z2 Force is a very different beast from the Z2 Play. The latter is a midrange handset at heart, but the Moto Z2 Force is Motorola’s flagship. It features Qualcomm’s powerful system-on-chip, the Snapdragon 835, and 4GB of RAM.

The only similarity between them is they both support Moto Mods. The Z2 Force features a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440. It’s a remarkably thin device, though Motorola has protected the screen from inevitable mishaps with its proprietary ShatterShield[18] layered technology.

Unfortunately, that slimmer profile necessitated a smaller battery compared to last year’s model. If you want better battery life, the Z2 Play is a better option. Or you can grab a battery Moto Mod to extend the Z2 Force’s life.

The Z2 Force does, however, feature a better camera, and one with two lenses. Both have 12 megapixels, but one is monochrome, allowing you to achieve true black and white photography. Bear in mind that for all the Z2 Force’s bells and whistles, though, it starts at £720 — over £200 more than an unlocked Z2 Play.

Moto Z2 Force Review[19]

Updated: Added Project Fi availability and pricing to the Moto X4 section.

After a 2-year hiatus, the Moto X returns with an all-glass design

Once upon a time, the Moto X[1] was the crown jewel of Motorola’s (and its parent company Lenovo’s[2]) lineup. But that was way back in 2015. Last year’s modular Moto Z[3] shifted the manufacturer’s strategy a bit, and now, Lenovo’s trying to rekindle some of the magic with a refreshed, revamped fourth-gen Moto X4.

Release date and price

Just like its predecessor, the new Moto X4 won’t break the bank.

In the U.S., the Moto X4 costs £400 from Google’s Project Fi[4], Fry’s, B&H, Best Buy, Jet.com, Newegg, Motorola.com, Republic Wireless, and Ting. It’s available for pre-order starting October 19, and ships a week later on October 26. If the prospect of shelling out £400 doesn’t thrill you, though, the Moto X4 is available at a discount — £330 — on Amazon’s Prime Exclusive Phones[5] program.

But there’s a catch: You’ll have to put up with ads on the phone’s lock screen to sign up for Amazon’s £99-a-year Prime membership. In Europe, the Moto X4 is priced at 399 euros (£475) for the 32GB version in eastern Europe, which only slightly more expensive than the Moto X 2015 (£400). All models are available in two colors: sterling blue or super black.

Understated design

Andy Boxall/Digital Trends

The Moto X4 slots in somewhere between Motorola’s lower-end G range[6] and flagship Z family[7] on Lenovo’s pricing spectrum, and the hardware more or less reflects that.

It’s much slimmer and a lot curvier than its predecessor, with an anodized aluminum unibody that puts its 5.2-inch Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) edge-to-edge screen front and center. But there’s not much else on the front, save a selfie camera optimized for low light and a fingerprint sensor that doubles as a home button. A 3.5mm headphone jack sits next to a SB© USB Type-C charging port on the bottom, and the SIM card slot is at the top.

On the right-hand side is where you’ll find the power button and volume rocker, and on the rear there’s a dual-sensor camera with a dual-LED flash on the all-glass, Gorilla Glass-shielded curved back.

Specs

Andy Boxall/Digital Trends

The Moto X4’s specs vary a little region-to-region. Every Moto X4 carries Qualcomm’s 630[8] system-on-chip, but the Europe, Latin America, and North American model have 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. The Asia Pacific Moto X4 ups the RAM and storage count to 4GB and 64GB, respectively.

Both Moto X4 models are IP68[9] water- and dust-resistant, though, which means they can be survive in up to 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes. They both sport a 3,000mAh nonremovable battery with support for Motorola’s speedy Turbo Charger. The Moto X4’s dual rear shooter comprises a 12-megapixel main sensor (f/2.0 aperture) and 8-megapixel secondary sensor (f/2.2 aperture), both of which have phase detection autofocus, and the ability to add bokeh-like depth of field effects (a la the iPhone 7’s Portrait Mode).

The 16-megapixel front camera, meanwhile, has an adaptive low-light feature that automatically boosts image brightness and contrast.

Software

Andy Boxall/Digital Trends

The Moto X4 isn’t all hardware. There’s plenty new in terms of software. A new wireless audio option lets you pair up to four wireless speakers simultaneously. Amazon Alexa[10] seems to be everywhere, these days, and the Moto X4 is no exception.

The AI-powered voice assistant is accessible even when the phone is locked via a voice command. A new Moto Key app logs you into websites requiring passwords on your laptop with a tap of a finger. Quick Screenshot snaps a pic of your phone’s screen when you tap the display with three fingers.

Face Filters, which will be available in a Play Store update on September 26, adds animations to your photos and videos. And Landmark Detection serves up information about objects of interest in your camera’s view. Sadly, it runs Android 7.1 Nougat instead of the latest Android 8.0 Oreo[11].

Update: Added Amazon Exclusive Phones pricing and availability.

When is your phone getting Android 8.0 Oreo? We asked every major manufacturer

It’s that time of year again. With a new Android version comes the immediate question: When will my device get the upgrade? As a general rule, if your phone was made in the last two years, there is a good chance you’re in luck — though every manufacturer is different and it really depends on what you own.

Before Android 8.0 Oreo broke cover, 7.1.2 Nougat was the latest version of the platform and it’s still unavailable to the wide majority of currently supported phones. Still, that didn’t stop us from posing the question to all of Android’s major manufacturers. Here is what they had to say.

Alcatel

Alcatel’s track record with Android updates is unfortunately spotty, and at the moment, there’s only one phone we expect to receive Android Oreo: The just-released Idol 5S[1].

The Idol 5S is currently Alcatel’s only product running 7.1.1 Nougat. The company’s lower-priced handsets, the A50, A30 Plus, and A30, all launched with 7.0 Nougat. Alcatel also promised to eventually deliver Nougat to last year’s Idol 4S[2], which launched with Marshmallow.

We reached out to TCL, the company that owns Alcatel, regarding its update roadmap. The company had nothing to share at this time, though we’ll update this article as soon as we receive an answer.

Asus

Asus has confirmed to Digital Trends that the ZenFone 3 and ZenFone 4 series[3] will receive Oreo by the second half of 2018. Although the company isn’t the quickest with updates, it did eventually follow through on its promise to bring Nougat to the ZenFone 3 series, so it’ll likely do the same here — just be prepared to wait a while.

Part of the delay is likely due to the company adding its own ZenUI skin over the operating system, which will reportedly see an upgrade[4] to 4.0 for Oreo. Asus phones confirmed to receive the update:

  • ZenFone 4
  • ZenFone 4 Pro
  • ZenFone 4 Selfie
  • ZenFone 4 Selfie Pro
  • ZenFone 4 Max
  • ZenFone 4 Max Pro
  • ZenFone 3
  • ZenFone 3 Deluxe
  • ZenFone 3 Max
  • ZenFone 3 Laser
  • ZenFone 3 Zoom

BlackBerry

TCL, which works with BlackBerry to manufacture its devices, has confirmed it will update the KeyOne[5] to Oreo. There’s no word on precisely when that might happen, but the version of Nougat on the device is pretty light and faithful to stock Android, so hopefully, the company won’t have to make too many customizations that would lengthen development.

As far as some of the company’s other phones, no announcements have been made at this time, so we’ll have to wait and see. BlackBerry phones confirmed to receive the update:

Essential

Android’s most talked-about startup has only got one phone — the PH-1 — and it’s launching with version 7.1.1 Nougat. We fully expect the device to receive Oreo.

In a mid-September Reddit Q&A[6], Essential reaffirmed its commitment to timely updates. “We’ll be releasing our kernel and factory images in the next few days,” said an engineer. “Android O will be coming in the next month or two.” Given that the phone runs a stock version of Android very similar to what Google uses on its Pixel and Nexus products, we don’t expect the turnaround to take very long — likely before the end of 2017.

Google

Google’s devices are the quickest to receive every new Android version. In keeping with the company’s 18-month support policy, four Google devices will be the first to receive the Oreo update: The Pixel[7], Pixel XL[8], Nexus 6P[9], and Nexus 5X[10].

This will be the final major update for the Nexus line. Google phones confirmed to receive the update:

  • Pixel
  • Pixel XL
  • Nexus 6P
  • Nexus 5X

HMD Global (Nokia)

HMD Global, the company responsible for producing Nokia’s Android phones, has announced that it will update three of its devices — the Nokia 6, 5, and 3 — to Oreo by the end of 2017. During a Nokia 8 launch event in the Philippines[11], the company said it would support every Nokia-branded phone in its portfolio for two years from release.

The update could come as soon as October, after the Nokia 8 gets Android O. HMD Global phones confirmed to receive the update:

  • Nokia 8
  • Nokia 6
  • Nokia 5
  • Nokia 3

Honor

Like its parent company, Huawei, Honor hasn’t made any announcements regarding Oreo. Also much like Huawei, Honor doesn’t sell many devices in the U.S. — there’s the Honor 6X[12] and Honor 8[13].

The Honor 8 already received an update to Nougat, but there’s no telling whether it will make the jump to Oreo. We reached out for information and will let you know what we hear.

HTC

HTC has been one of the more respectable Android manufacturers where updates are concerned. Last year, it confirmed early on which of its phones would see upgrades to Nougat.

Although it hasn’t made an announcement yet and has not returned our request for a timeline, the company should offer a clear-cut road map once it’s ready to do so. In the past, it’s gotten Marshmallow and Nougat updates out the door in less than four months — an impressive feat, given the company makes its Sense UI modifications to Google’s operating system. Specifically for Oreo, we expect the HTC U11[14] and U Ultra[15] to lead the way on updates, with the older HTC 10[16] to follow.

We’ll provide a list as soon as we hear official word.

Huawei

Huawei has yet to confirm which of its phones will receive Oreo and hasn’t responded to our request for comment. We expect to see an update for the Mate 9[17] and P10[18], which launched with Nougat, sometime in 2018. But outside of that, it’s hard to say what the company’s plans are at this time.

The wait might be drawing to a close, though. In early October, Huawei launched a limited Oreo preview program for Mate 9 owners who don’t mind putting up with a few bugs. It only has 250 slots, though, and they’re up randomly selected — you’ll have to put your name in the proverbial hat[19] for a chance at the beta.

When the update does release, it will likely come in tandem with a new version of Huawei’s user interface, EMUI. Additionally, most of its phones are not sold stateside — the Mate 9 is the only phone listed for sale on the company’s U.S. site. We’ll update this as we hear more.

Lenovo

While we’ll address Motorola devices separately, Lenovo’s own phones are also set to get an Android 8.0 Oreo update.

The company recently updated its Android update schedule to include some phones in the K series, but the schedule says that it won’t happen until June 2018. Lenovo phones confirmed to receive the update:

  • Lenovo K8
  • Lenovo K8 Note
  • Lenovo K8 Plus

LG

We’re still waiting to hear what LG’s update roadmap looks like. Until then, we can look to history for some clues.

Last year’s LG V20[20] was one of the first devices to launch with Nougat, and we could see the same happen this year with the LG V30[21], which will be revealed on August 31. The company’s other flagship, the G6 will also certainly receive Oreo down the line; and while the G5, LG’s failed modular phone, is still within the update window, it’s unclear if it will still get it. Digital Trends reached out to the company for clarification, and we’ll update this report as soon as we hear more.

Motorola

While Motorola isn’t quite as timely with its updates as it once was, the company is still pretty transparent about its plans and is one of the better phone-makers in terms of making sure none of its products are left behind.

In September, Motorola announced[22] which of its phones would get an upgrade to Android 8.0 Oreo. It didn’t commit to a timeline but said that device owners can expect new firmware “this fall.” Not every phone will make the jump, unfortunately.

The Moto G4 won’t get Oreo, and neither will the Moto E4. Initially, Motorola refused to commit to updating the Moto G4 Plus — despite promising[23] in the phone’s marketing materials an upgrade to “Android O.” “It’s our general practice for the Moto G family to get one major OS upgrade per device, so it wasn’t originally planned for Android O,” a Motorola spokesperson said in a blog post[24]. “But it’s important to us we keep our promises, so in addition to the N upgrade it has already received, we will be upgrading Moto GF Plus to Android O.

Because this is an unplanned upgrade, it will take some time to fit into our schedule, we’ll update our software upgrade page when we have more info.” Motorola phones to receive the update:

  • Moto Z
  • Moto Z Droid
  • Moto Z Force Droid
  • Moto Z Play
  • Moto Z Play Droid
  • Moto Z2 Play
  • Moto Z2 Force Edition
  • Moto X4
  • Moto G4 Plus
  • Moto G5
  • Moto G5 Plus
  • Moto G5S
  • Moto G5S Plus

OnePlus

OnePlus has said the OnePlus 3[25] and 3T will receive the next iteration of its own OxygenOS based on Oreo. Although unconfirmed, the recently-released OnePlus 5[26] is expected to follow suit.

During a Reddit Ask Me Anything[27], the company confirmed it plans to release the updates before the end of 2017. Unfortunately, older devices, like the OnePlus 2 and X, look to have been left behind after the company failed to follow through on its promise to update them to Nougat. OnePlus phones to receive the update:

  • OnePlus 5
  • OnePlus 3
  • OnePlus 3T

Samsung

Like most other phone makers, Samsung has not yet made any announcements regarding Oreo’s release.

Still, there are rumors, courtesy of SamMobile[28], that indicate no less than 16 devices will receive the update. Of course, some phones, like the Galaxy S8 series[29], are a given. The Galaxy S7[30] and S7 Edge[31] should also receive the update.

However, a few lesser-known devices not as common in the U.S., like the Galaxy J, A, and C series, may follow suit. These product lines typically are not supported for quite as long as the flagship S devices, so you’ll have to wait for official word from Samsung for clarification. In the meantime, we reached out to the company and are still awaiting a response.

Sony

Unveiled at September’s IFA conference, Sony’s Xperia XZ1[32] and XZ1 Compact both feature Oreo out of the box.

They are the first new handsets to do so, but the company is not stopping there. Sony confirmed[33] shortly afterward it will bring the update to 10 of its previous devices. The list includes flagships like the Xperia XZ Premium, mid-rangers like the Xperia X Compact, and lower-end handsets like the Xperia XA1 Ultra.

Even the Xperia Touch — an Android-based smart projector — will receive Oreo. Sony says timing and availability will vary by market and network operators. Sony has stepped up its efforts as of late, with the Xperia X Performance being the first of its phones to get Nougat a little over three months after release.

The company has become one of Android’s most faithful partners in terms of distributing updates to customers as quickly as possible. We’ll update this report over the coming months as the rollout progresses. Sony devices that will receive the update:

  • Xperia X
  • Xperia X Performance
  • Xperia XZ
  • Xperia X Compact
  • Xperia XZ Premium
  • Xperia XZs
  • Xperia XA1
  • Xperia XA1 Ultra
  • Xperia Touch
  • Xperia XA1 Plus

ZTE

ZTE hasn’t said which of its phones are getting Oreo, and when we reached out for comment, a spokesperson responded with the following statement:

“We evaluate whether or not a device receives the latest update on a case by case basis. We are very open to looking at bringing Android O to all our of devices, but because of device hardware capabilities and carrier requirements, this will drive how quickly we would be able to commit to whether we can, and the actual timelines of seeing this come on a device.” ZTE did make good on its promise to keep its devices current during Nougat’s run.

It brought version 7.1.1 to the Axon 7[34], and added support for Daydream VR[35] at the same time. The company even ran a program for ZMax Pro users to preview Nougat. It’s been reasonably timely with updates in the past, and hopefully, that will continue with Oreo’s rollout.

We expect the Axon 7 and Axon 7 Mini[36] to lead the way. That’s everything we know regarding which phones will receive Android 8.0 Oreo. There are some manufacturers not on this list, and for them, we revert to Google’s official response:

“We’ve also been working closely with our partners, and by the end of this year, hardware makers including Essential, General Mobile, HMD Global Home of Nokia Phones, Huawei, HTC, Kyocera, LG, Motorola, Samsung, Sharp, and Sony are scheduled to launch or upgrade devices to Android 8.0 Oreo.” It’s still early days in terms of the operating system’s latest release, however, so you can look forward to frequent updates in the coming months. If we missed a phone manufacturer you think should be on this list, let us know!

Update: The Lenovo K8, K8 Note, and K8 Plus are getting Android 8.0 Oreo.
