Motorola reveals that it shipped 6.5 million smartphones in the first quarter
Sure, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 alone shipped 10 million units in the first quarter of this year. But Motorola just might be happy with the 6.5 million units it shipped during the same three month period. Whether the Motorola Moto X was a big success is something that is going to have be debated by scholars in the future. It certainly wasn't a game-changer for the manufacturer, who hasn't really shot out the lights since 2009's Motorola DROID.

Where Motorola did well was with the entry-level Motorola Moto G. Taking on the value niche, home to phones like the Nokia Lumia 520, the Moto G provided Android fans with a way to get a decently spec'd phone at an entry level price. We're talking about a phone sporting a 4.5 inch screen with a pixel density of 329ppi. A quad-core processor drives the phone, which has 1GB of RAM, and is now driven by Android 4.4.

Now that Lenovo owns the company, there might be less pressure on Motorola to shock the world with its smartphone releases. When Google owned the company, there was always the feeling that the next release would offer some incredible new technology from Google.
