moto-g-2014-review-7

Last week when Lenovo’s head of mobile Chen Xudong revealed that the Motorola brand would be phased out, there were some hints of what the future could look like for Moto-branded handsets, namely how they will sport fingerprint sensors and how the company will focus on phones larger than 5-inches.

There was also talks about how Lenovo was planning on killing off the lower-end phones like the Moto G and Moto E, but thankfully it looks like that will not be happening. In a statement issued to The Verge, a Motorola representative said, “Although we are simplifying the combined Motorola and [Lenovo] portfolio, we have no plans to retire Moto G, our most successful smartphone, or Moto E.”

As the rep rightfully points out, the Moto G is the company’s most successful smartphone in the recent years. The fact that it packs decent specs for what you’re paying for has helped with adoption around the world, especially amongst users and markets where paying for high-end smartphones is out of the reach for the masses.

Ultimately what we are taking away from this is that there could be less phones from Motorola in the future, but you can rest assured knowing that the classics will not be going anywhere. That being, we are curious as to what we can expect from the Moto G and Moto E for 2016.
