    The Moto Z is a Flagship Phone With Some Impressive Snap-On Accessories

    When Lenovo and Motorola put out that RAZR teaser a couple weeks ago, we were wondering how they’d manage to bring back the flip phone now that the flip phone’s expiration date has passed.

    The budget Moto G smartphone has been a runaway success internationally, selling far more units in all than the higher-end Moto X.

    LG G5 Review – A Flagship With Unique Tricks
