Find Your Perfect Moto Match with the All-New Moto G, Moto X Play and Moto X Style.

We’ve said it once and then said it again and won’t stop saying it: the camera matters, especially on Android, where the points of differentiation between flagship phones are becoming increasingly small.NEW YORK — Motorola is refreshing its Android smartphones with better cameras and other improvements as it seeks to lure customers who want lower-cost alternatives to leading smartphones from Apple and Samsung. The Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, LG G4, and the new Moto X Style (or Moto X Pure Edition, if you live in the US) are all universally fast, well built, and (for the most part) have better-designed software than ever.

And nearly 1 in 5 people would be more willing to give up seeing their significant other, showering or sleeping than having to go without their smartphone for a weekend1. Motorola hasn’t announced prices for the Moto X models, but they are expected to be a few hundred dollars cheaper than high-end phones, which cost $600 or more without a contract.

It’s the best we’ve ever built and one of the best in the world.” Later, another executive went so far as to cite an article here at The Verge about how the camera is the main thing that matters. They desert us with a dead battery when we need them the most, embarrass us during important meetings, and pester us while we’re driving, demanding we take our eyes off the road to pay attention to them.

But these kinds of numbers are hard to equate with real-world experience — especially the “just give me a quick photo without hassle” kind of experience most people demand from their smartphones. Luckily, DPReview got a chance to take some sample photos, a couple of which are reproduced below. (Head to DPReview for the full images and the breakdown of their thoughts.) The gist is this: “Image detail in bright light is impressive, and in lower light a well-balanced approach to noise reduction means that a lot of detail is preserved while noise isn’t getting too intrusive,” according to DPReview.

Today we are announcing the next generations of our most popular phones — Moto G and Moto X — giving you the mobile relationship you never knew existed. With an all-day battery3, it won’t ever bail on you when you need it most and it’s ready to capture new memories with a flick of the wrist with a 13 megapixel camera. And now, Moto G can complement your personal style even more with customization options on Moto Maker4, our online design studio where you can pick the colors, memory and accents to make your phone as unique as you are.

And living up to its name, get all the power you need for gaming, streaming and multi-tasking at the speed of life with a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor. It’s possible (actually likely) that the difference came down to Samsung more aggressively post-processing that noise out — but whatever the cause, the noise was there.

Make yours a true reflection of you by choosing from a variety of vibrant colors or authentic materials including new Saffiano leather and real wood with unique grains. As I said, I’m optimistic based on what I’ve seen and on what DPReview and DXoMark say — but we won’t know for sure until we’ve seen (and done) more testing.

And when your battery needs a boost, the world’s fastest charging smartphone5 will get 10 hours of power in just 15 minutes of charging with TurboPower. You can take crystal-clear photos and video with the 21-megapixel camera or look your best in selfies or video chats with the 5-megapixel front-facing camera featuring a wide angle lens and selfie flash.

How to buy & pricing that fitsThis is our biggest Moto G launch yet, with availability in more than 60 countries throughout North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia Pacific starting today. Check your local websites for pricing, but one thing is certain, we’ve made sure that every Moto phone is offered at an amazingly competitive price and delivers premium value. Moto X Play will be available starting in August in various countries across Europe, Latin America and Canada (sorry, it won’t be available in the US, but we’ll have more choices for you all later this year).

We’ll share news for Asia Pacific, including more on China and India, later this year. 2 Designed to withstand immersion in up to 3 feet/1 meter of fresh water for up to 30 minutes provided the back cover is properly sealed. Actual battery performance will vary and depends on many factors including signal strength, network configuration, age of battery, operating temperature, features selected, device settings, and voice, data, and other application usage patterns. 5 Based on average smartphone charging rate (mA) in the first 15 minutes and over the entire charging cycle.
