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...

Seriously Google?
The Razr Maxx is still one of the best phones out.

Motorola basically brought android to the mainstream with the Droid line.

The Raxr maxx still is unchallenged by any other android oem as far as battery life and stability.

As long as the X phone has a memory card slot on it, it'll be great.

Motorola has always had good designs and hardware.

Google's boss even called Samsung a threat in a closed door meeting:

From engineering point of view Moto phones are excellent. It was first to bring water resistant phone, first to bring thin phone with large batteries.

It was unprofessional management that killed the company.

Ive never owned a razr v3 but sold an awful lot of them in my career. Have a razr i as my second handset and has given me a lot less trouble than about 90% of the other phones out there. Just annoys me on the comments section of this website where people on this site start making unjustified comments or stating that a phone didnt sell well when it was one of the most popular phones of all time, just laughable.

I think it would be better if Google Uses IPHONE for the next nexus device. mentioned that a (water-proof nexus Iphone) WITH A 4 INCH display and a good battery will be the best choice.
HA HA HA HA H....

The Xphone is real and will come to "change the game" for sure.

Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC would not be able to much Motorola any more after the X phone show off.

But that might change with the Google X Phone, an extraordinary device
expected to arrive at Google I/O in mid-May sporting high-end specs and
running Google’s future Android 5.0 Key Lime Pie without actually being
a Nexus device.

The X Phone has been spotted in various rumors and leaks so far,
without being actually confirmed, but this time around WSJ does mention
it:

Meanwhile, Google’s Motorola has been developing what it calls the X
Phone to compete with Apple’s iPhone and Samsung’s Galaxy S devices,
people with knowledge of the initiative have said.

Not exactly a miracle, Moto been mismanaged for ages. Remember where Hector Ruiz came from before he drove AMD into disaster, to make the downfall fast he recruited a lot of his Moto friends (managers at Moto) and hired them as managers to help milk AMD for money and to make teh mismanagement complete. Thats the Motorola business culture, useless people doing useless things.

But because moto produced crap (yeah crap like the old flip top RAZR) phone before and it did not sell well. It was behind nokia since moto phones are really slow. That's why it became an impression to most people that Moto means slow phone.

Personally I would say Motorola phones are much better compared to Samsung. They bring some uniqueness to each device.
