Shame that MediaTek, Kirin, Samsung, Spectrum are not getting half the exposure that Qualcomm is getting.
Slowly changing the world since its discovery on Oct 22, 2004
Is available at Best-Buy for $399
Oops! No band 30?
Nice phone. LG Q8, hopefully that gets offered in the US as well.
Sprint carried a phone like this once. The Kyocera Echo. Total fail. ZTE increases the size now. Let's see how this one works out.
Figures Amazon would play that game. They are not the only store in town..........
Moto X4 Deliveries
Shame. I have been waiting to get my hands on this phone. Looks like the G5S Plus is already out. Hopefully Lenovo gets on the ball with this phone. Best mid-ranger for the money I have seen.
Their 4s was the best one to date.
"thin body of curved glass"
Welcome to the age of Giraffe neck phones with next to bezel-less displays.
The Zenphone 4 and the Moto X4 are practically the same phone from design to specs. Interesting..............
Interesting to see when this goes through. The LTE bands and coverage. Not that both networks were that great for network coverage in the first place.
As easy as XYZ
Looks like AT&T is going to not be happy. No LTE band 30.
G to X
Dying to see the X4. Hopefully it will launch soon too.
True, but there are people that keep their phones for years too. And at the price-point that this phone is being pushed, you would expect more.
Anxiously awaiting the X4 US launch.
No band 71. Looks like the V30 holds the accolade for that now.
Re: Samsung Galaxy Note 8+
Brighter and more efficient how? Than the S8+? While I am not a fan of the infinity display and the 18.5:9 screen display ratio, the quality of these displays is top level.
Re: Moto X4
True. A very basic entry level series from what I understand. Even more affordable.
I truly hope this gives Snapdragon and Samsung a true run for the money. Their duopoly in the Android market needs more competition so price-points can be more consumer friendly .
From E to G to X Now from E to G to X to Z I truly this one gets as close to flagship without being flagship. The price-point on the Z force is out of reach and the G is slightly becoming more E in performance. Interesting how this X series is going to play out in the hierarchy.
I still have a Blue Pure XL with a Helio X10. The display, camera, are absolutely on a par with the Galaxy 7. While not a Snapdragon 820 series worthy contender, everything else about the phone is truly flagship.
Re: No Band 71/ 600 Mhz Support
They're probably going to wait for that heralded Snapdragon 845 that is going to be all the rave. Band 2,4,12,66,71 with the last 2 still in infancy stages. Would be nice though to extend coverage in West Virginia, Wyoming, Montana, Maine, Alaska.
Samsung Galaxy Note 8+
Samsung Galaxy Note 8=Samsung Galaxy 8+ w/enhanced camera and a stylus pen. That's about it. "Take Note"
Asus ZenFone AR
Asus makes great phones. This one no exception. I'm surprised they did not go with the 835 processor on this one and stuck with the 821 for whatever reason. One thing for sure, with VZW and Asus, this phone is going to be weighed down by tons of BLOATWARE.
No Lifeline? Blame the Republicans!
"The bill would undercut an essential anti-poverty program that connects families to emergency services, children to educational opportunities, and parents to jobs." Please elaborate as to how it would "undercut" the fraud and abuse which is the main reason that eliminating it is intended to do. Landlines do the same and for years it was used with resounding success. Emergency services, employment and other services function just as well from landlines. When the introduction of the mobile phone version was introduced ...
This is great from Motorola (Lenovo) People do not have to be stuck with an entry-level or a flagship and still get pretty decent a phone for an affordable price-point. As long as Motorola keeps up with a good camera which it appears to be the case with the G5S plus, it will draw a larger market.
Re: Motorola Moto Z2 Force
I really would hope so with the specs and the flagship status. I still have my 1st Gen Moto G. For and entry-level it is a great phone overall. The camera though was abysmal. Now with time, hopefully Motorola (Lenovo) got with the program.
Sony XZ Premium
When are these bigger manufactures going to get with the program and have band 66?
Motorola Moto Z2 Force
Hopefully Motorola (Lenovo) is getting with the program and making a flagship that competes with others in regards to camera quality. For years their cameras have ben sub par.
8 GB Version
ZTE made a 6GB premium version of their Axon 7. I can't say enough great things about the phone. Hopefully they come out with a similar successor with 8GB like the One Plus 5. Giving customers choice is great.
Re: If a tree falls in the woods and nobody hears it didn't really fall?
And watch carriers obligate their customers again to switch out phones so they can access everything. 2G>3G WCDMA>HSPDA>4G>LTE. Hopefully all the North American carriers get on the same boat early with compatible frequency bands.
Great phone. Why the big deal over a color?
Nice line of phones from the C series to the X. Affordable. One thing Motorola (Lenovo) still needs to concentrate on is the camera quality. Though not intensively flagship quality driven, it would help tremendously. Motorola phones have a reputation of sub-par camera quality.
Countless playstore apps for Android users to creat blacklists and block these calls from making it through. Don't recognize the calling number or blocked???? Don't answer!
Sprint needs all the help it can get. Esp. its native footprint.
That the best they can do for a "flagship"? SD 625??? Would a 626 or even a 650 hurt????
8 GB of RAM with 128 GB of storage
Talk about built in storage!!!!! Phone is going to run like a Bugatti!!!!!
HTC makes a damn good phone and is underrated due to the hype the Korean manufacturers get.
That is why T-Mobile even on MVNO's offer it. As long as your Android offers Voice over LTE, you are all set! Why AT&T does not, is beyond me. Verizon offers HD calling.
