Motorola: "Google wanted us to be successful but never needed us to"
0. phoneArena 28 Feb 2014, 02:27 posted on
Motorola, until recently a Google company, held a low-key session during MWC 2014, during which it shed some light on the time it spend under the search giant's ownership. This has been something of a question mark for all of us in the industry, as many were wondering whether the creator of Android isn't giving Motorola a special treatment in terms of access to the world's most widespread mobile OS. It certainly made some sense...

Best luck Moto, hope you become more successful under Lenovo. They know exactly how to handle competitive asian markets.
I see good future for Motorola if they come up with good cost effective phones. In India recent Moto G launch was an immense success. Bought one for my dad as the deal was irresistible.

After reading this I have renewed hope for Motorola. If future releases of the Moto X & G stay true to what the original releases set out to accomplish, then I'll keep buying your product.

All the Best Moto... I was thinking Mommy Google would take care of you and feed u all the Software goodies like how MS gives to Nokia... Hope Daddy Lenovo takes good care of you by giving you all the Hardware support you need... Seeing you come out with the KK update that quickly for X and G makes me think you dont require the software... Take Care... >_

Decided to replace my drowned Motorola Droid Ultra for a Note 3 today, but i still wish my much loved Motorola the best under Lenovo. My Ultra was absolutely fantastic, i just decided to go with a bigger screen true multitasking, and more powerful specs this time around. If they keep the good positive direction their headed up under Lenovo, I think they can slowy climb their way back to prominence.

This 'Motonovo' mash-up makes them a force to be reckoned with. Motorola branding + Lenovo muscle = Fierce competitor.

Hope they will keep the MOTO X size as it is, don't go for a spec race and end up with a 5" screen

I was shocked to discover that the Moto X was actually smaller than my previous phone... And I'm ok with that. Win customers over with your innovation and quality experience, not bragging rights over processing power, when it comes down to it, Angry Birds plays the same across all phones.

Funny... this is the only thing I want is a 5 inch screen. I would buy it if it did have a 5 inch screen and nothing else changed. Just personal preference.

Maybe they'll release the Moto X2 and Moto XL2 for those who want the larger device...

And remember, kids: Anything that Giggles touches, becomes ruined. Besides the search engine(which is no longer that good), there is nothing about Giggle, that deserves attention. They, like the Koreans, have two departments: Copy and Paste.

If it's ran as a subsidiary, there's hope...
