Moto Z4?

2019-10-28, 22:50 PM

Why doesn't Motorola just kill off the Moto Z franchise and make a flagship Moto One phone for 2020?

Because US carriers don't want to support the Android One program and the rules it entails.  US carriers want you to buy a new phone every single year.....not keep a phone for 2 years knowing you have timely updates from the manufacturer.

The Moto one is not the same as a Android One phone. Motorola has said that the Moto One line is for their advanced features. I have a moto Z4 and a Motorola One Zoom. And I have to say that I no longer use the Moto Z4. The Moto one zoom has a much better design with the four cameras on the back and a light up  logo with beautiful a design. People continuously ask me what phone is that.

Thanks for the clarification.  I thought that the Moto One lineup was part of Android One.  My bad there.

Motorola said the reason why they released the Moto G8 so early was because of the Moto one line of phones and their camera technology they wanted to bring that technology to market as fast as possible on the Moto G8. And not wait until 2020

I am personally glad the Z line is still alive and if Verizon still wants a new moderately priced 5G upgradable phone that maybe there will be a Z5. I still haven't seen another Moto phone (or phone from any other manufacturer) that supports the Surface Pen and that's a reason that the Z4 is unmatched for my needs.

The 5G Moto mod is very bulky.

I mean doesn't that go against what some people in this forum have been asking for? 

 

Technically in the US, Motorola's current flagship is the Motorola One Zoom.

I own both the Moto Z4 and the Moto one zoom, they both have the exact same processor, ram and storage. The only difference is the cameras.
