Moto G Turbo Edition review

Alleged 2016 Moto X leak suggests a metal redesign.

Specifications: 5-inch IPS LCD (1280 x 720 pixels), 1.5Ghz octa core Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, microSD slot (up to 32GB cards supported), dual SIM, 13MP AF primary camera, 5MP front camera, 4G, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, USB host, Android 5.1, 2,470mAh battery, 141g NEW DELHI: Turbo Edition is the new smartphone in the Moto G line-up.

While the Motorola Moto X (Gen 3) still seems like a good contender as a flagship Motorola smartphone, there are plenty of fans waiting for the powerful Moto X Force to arrive in the country.Motorola’s conspicuous reluctance to follow other manufacturers in offering a metal-clad flagship handset may be poised to change, if a photo published by Chinese mobile site cnBeta (via Pocketnow) does indeed feature next year’s version of the Moto X.Motorola’s first-generation 360 smartwatch was the poster boy for the Android Wear ecosystem, with subsequent price revisions making it considerably more enticing. From Motorola Moto 360 (2nd Gen), Samsung Gear 2 smartwatch and more, here are the some notable launches: Apple smartwatch was finally launched in India this year, but at priced at around Rs 30,000, but it still burnt a hole in people’s pocket.

Although Apple also launched two iPhones with new touch technology, a 13-inch iPad and an enhanced Apple TV this year, its smartwatch – especially Watch OS 2.0 – is still an ultimate wearable experience. However, what makes the phone special is the fast charging capabilities, making it great for users who need to charge their phones multiple times a day. For now we only have a view of the metal back and it surely looks like a mix of the Lumia 830 and the iPhone 5s with the gaps at the top and the bottom. While only seen from the rear, the image immediately brings to mind a mashup of several other OEMs’ devices: Shaped like a Galaxy S6, with a rear speaker grille that apes HTC’s latest Desire models, the handset also features a protruding camera lens module in the vein of Microsoft’s Lumia 950 XL.

The water-proof and dust-resistant exterior makes it an impressive option for users looking for a rugged smartphone that could withstand rain and dusty weather. For a company that has situated itself as decidedly value-friendly, the use of metal would be a departure from its mostly plastic Moto-branded models — although the Moto X line has been a vanguard in employing premium materials such as wood and leather in the form of optional backplates.

It is still very pretty to look at—those who prefer the metal bands would like the black and silver colour option, and there is also the black leather strap. The Rs 19,999 Moto 360 smartwatch gives users complete control right from the wrist so you can stay in the moment without constantly grabbing your phone from your pocket or purse.

Still then, at first glance the smartphone in question did remind us of the old Motorola E8 (MotoRokr) as the overall shape does look familiar to smartphone design from 2008. Most of the report is merely speculation, such as the suggestion that the 2016 Moto X may sport Qualcomm’s latest top-of-the-line Snapdragon 820 processor. Titan, India’s largest watchmaker, also announced a “smartwatch” jointly designed and built with global computing major HP Inc in India and select international markets by December. However, looking at the back we can tell Motorola has hooked up a pretty thick camera unit that includes a dual LED flash integrated into the camera set up. Still, it’s very interesting to learn that the Lenovo-owned Motorola is even toying around with the idea of an all-metal flagship, something that Apple, HTC, Samsung, and Huawei, among others, already produce.

It’s not clear what a metal Moto X would mean for the popular Moto Maker customization service, though, as such a design would likely be less suited to the color and material variants it enables. Also visible on the back are some pretty bold perforations for the speaker, these could either mean a design change with Motorola’s current front facing speaker set up (a bad move), else this could indicate an older design. While the previous Moto 360 was powered by a Texas Instruments OMAP3 single-core processor, the new one gets a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core chip.

There are very few tweaks available in comparison custom UIs but the relatively lower amount of bloatware keeps it clutter-free and makes navigation easier. Wear as a platform still doesn’t feel as slick to use as the Apple WatchOS, and the gamut of quick settings, app drawer and Google Now Cards can make the entire thing seem pretty cluttered at times.

It runs on Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor, which is a fairly powerful chip and has been used in more expensive Moto X Play (Rs.19,999). However, if you don’t really care about the ruggedness aspect, the Lenovo Vibe S1 offers more in terms of storage, a slightly better camera and a higher resolution display.
