Google admits current Motorola devices not up to their standards - read the full textAbout nine months ago when Google acquired Motorola, the company also inherited about 18 months worth of product pipeline. This included models such as the RAZR HD and the RAZR M. It seems, however, that none of these products are up to Google's standards. While talking in a conference, Google's...

RAZR M is a proper size for a phone. Please release it with a good screen and good hardware, and in EUROPE!! Tired of this trend of phablet phones in order to get good hardware. I want a phone in my pocket not frying pan!

I wish Google/Nexus/Motorola all the best, but as long as the wrongheadedly combine max 16GB memory with no external SD-card support, I remain cold. If these google-guys absolutely MUST continue ditching SD-card support, then at least release a mobiles with 32GB storage. And while Im at it - dont be a skinflint then it comes to video-codec support. Any top-of-the-line smartphone should have the works: MP4/DivX/XviD/WMV/H.264/H.263 support - just like the Samsung galaxy S3. I hate being forced to convert movies just in order to play them.

It would be interesting to see what Google comes up with once they deplete that pipeline. The ultimate Nexus made completely by Google?

I think motorola makes some of the most capable phones going. Despite how they look they'll do an excellent job and last me much longer than others i've owned...S3

Motorola is always known for it's durability and quality. Samsung? First part to go is always "flex cable". Same with Nokia. I know, I work in one of the biggest telecom companies in Asia. Flex cable. Flex Cable. Flex cable.

I, as a Hello Moto fan do agree, have been forced to use other brands thus far. I am therefore seriously looking forward to the Droid Nexus or Razr Nexus... which ever name they decide to go with.

It's good to raise the bar, but hey google dudes, the recent Moto's really are up to the game.

I'm running Raxr Maxx for 8 month now, and I can tell you that I badly wish to upgrade, but not finding anything in market worth to drop my Maxx. Good dispplay (not best), fair processor, fair memory, and I had zero issue, not a single hang or restart, and who the hell in market can run 2 full days of intense usage without need a recharge? Moto's supercharged only.

wow.Actually Motorolas build quality has been poor. They used some of the cheapest components and stuffed that into mediocre cover.

Google if you want build a great phone you have to pick the best hardware from best competitor for example.

- 4.8" super LCD 1080p HTC I one of the best screen if it's not the best .

- The bigger battery from moto. 3000Mah.

- Sony BSI camera sensor with bigger sensor and some Nokia pure view tech even though if you bay for Nokia.

-The phone build by HTC same build quality as HTC one.

- Chipset and GPU made by ARM specially build for nexus (no more Samsung chipset)

Finally the most important point is Software optimization and please Google let the hardware take the advantage of software like IPhone and galaxy's.

I mean the Android headset really seems a joke, just 1 damn button u gotta be kiddin? While there are some apps which can sort of simulate a multimedia headset on Android, it's nowhere near the real thing and the clicking routine is extremely annoying! Android maybe 1 of the most advanced mobile OSes in the world, but, it still lacks some pretty basic n essential features such as this!

It is hoped that in the process of introducing new devices they do not abandon Motorola's standards of build quality which have been among the best (eg Kevlar and carbon fibre materials). They also with the MAXX launched a smartphone with a 3300 battery providing class leading endurance. I appreciate their wish to raise the game. Clearly LG's Nexus 4 has ruffled a few feathers.
