Top-Rated Motorola Phones February 2015

#1. The Motorola Moto G 2014
At roughly the same price point, Motorola´s second Moto G model comes with key improvements over the 2013 model. This includes a 5-inch screen, an 8-megapixel rear camera as well as memory expansion support this time around. It runs on the same processing speed as the 1st-gen Moto G, clocked in at 1.2GHz on four CPU cores. This 2014 re-release of the Moto G branding also mimics the 2nd-gen Moto X with differently-colored interchangeable shells -- leave the Moto X´s leather option. Its non-removable battery is rated at 2070mAh, with RAM standing at a mid-range 1GB.
#2. The Motorola Moto X 2014
The Moto X´s 2014 follow-up retains the name, but apparently not the specs. It passes the 5-inch mark (5.2 inches) and now has a FullHD 1080p display resolution (423ppi). It also conceals a 13-megapixel 4K rear camera with a choice between 25 different back covers -- including Horween-made leather and patterned wooden designs. The 2014 Moto X´s processor is a Snapdragon 801 clocked in at 2.5GHz, running on four CPU cores. Other high-end features include a 1080p-capable 2-megapixel front-facing camera, Crystal Talk audio technology and LTE connectivity.

Question #1: Should it be a smartphone or not?
#3. The Motorola Droid Turbo
Shortly after releasing the flagship Nexus 6 model, Motorola updates their Droid series with the 5.2-inch Droid Turbo, fitted with a 4K 21-megapixel camera at the back side. It operates on the brand's proprietary Mobile Computing System, composed of an Adreno 420 GPU (600MHz), a 3GB RAM, and a 2.7GHz 64-bit quad-core processor. Its pretty high 3900mAh battery capacity is accompanied by Motorola's Turbo Charger, promising to add 8 hours of mixed usage time in just 15 minutes of charging. The Droid Turbo's internal memory stands at 32GB, though the Ballistic Nylon version is reported to have 64GB of storage.
#4. The Motorola Moto X
Google starts applying its imprint on Motorola by describing the Moto X as the first truly personalizable phone by letting you pick the front, the back and the accents. Other improvements over today´s run-of-the-mill Android devices are that quick-capture 10-megapixel camera with Clear Pixel low-light technology and a quad-core Andreo 320 graphical processing unit. There is also a low-power notification system to save battery life.
#5. The Motorola Moto E
Running the latest Android 4.4 KitKat, the Moto E joins the series upon its 2014 release. Its formula might have been intended for process-hungry apps, with the combination of an Adreno 302 GPU and a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset. And they backed it up with a 1980mAh batter, promising a 24-hour lifespan at one charge. It also sports a Corning Gorilla glass panel and a splash guard, adding a touch of durability to what is otherwise a typical mid-spec smartphone: 5-megapixel camera, 4GB storage, 1GB RAM, and so on...
#6. The Motorola Moto G
For little money, the Motorola Moto G offers reasonably attractive specs: the Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (quad core, 1.2GHz), the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (may be upgraded to Kitkat 4.4 in 2014), and a 4.5-inch high-resolution display (720p HD with a fineness of 329 ppi). There is also the camera that has 5 megapixels and records high-definition videos (720p HD at 30 fps), 1GB RAM, and a 2070mAh battery. However, the Moto G is not 4G-enabled, and its 8GB memory cannot be expanded (but there is a 16GB version, and a promise of free 50GB storage on Google Drive for two years). Is Google going the Apple way with fixed memory setups?
#7. The Motorola Droid Mini
Although handy in both size and price, the Motorola Droid Mini still offers some not-so-mini features: It carries a 10-megapixel Quick Capture camera, uses DuPont Kevlar in its body and Corning Gorilla Glass for its screen. It puts more focus on voice control with what Motorola calls its Touchless Control app. The 1.7GHz Dual-Core Krait CPU, 2GB of RAM, NFC capability, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean should also provide decent performance, despite its mid-range 4.3-inch LCD screen -- probably the reason for its Mini name. There is no talk time rating per se, but Motorola mentions a general 28 hours of usage time. By the way, it uses Motorola´s X8 8-core control system for graphic performance and to save battery time, among other things.
It also has the usual gyroscope, proximity sensors etc, but it is one of the rare smartphones that also include a barometer.
