Motorola’s last few devices like the Moto X and Moto G has been quite a hit and everyone’s eyes are on them following their project “ara.” Not to mention that they are a Google company so Motorola devices will more likely receive the latest Android updates faster then most Android devices out there except for Nexus devices, of course.
