Motorola Phones & Smartphones
Originally founded in Illinois as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation in 1927, Motorola spent most of the 90s as the dominant cell phone manufacturer. If you had a cellphone in those days, there was a good chance it was a Motorola phone. After being overtaken by Nokia, Motorola made a huge comeback in the mid 2000’s with their Razr flip phone—another phone seemingly everybody had at the time. Eventually, however, Motorola would see its days as a mobile device superpower come to an end with juggernauts Apple and Samsung taking over the scene.
While they may no longer be the big players, they are certainly still in the game. These days, Motorola Mobility (technically a completely separate company from the original Motorola) produces some of the best budget-friendly phones on the market. Their Moto series of smartphones are consistently included in lists of best inexpensive phones. These phones may be affordable, but they certainly aren’t cheap. Running on the powerful Android operating system and powered by strong processors, Motorola’s Moto phones should be more than enough to satisfy the average cell phone user.
Motorola’s smartphones are packed with all the basics you expect from modern smartphones like front and rear-facing cameras, touch screens, long battery life, and modern operating systems. Motorola phone are available from all the major carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon) as well as MVNOs like Mint Mobile, Boost Mobile, FreeUp, Virgin Mobile, and more.
