The moto g play will go on sale from 2 May at a starting price of £169 and will be available from E.E, O2, Carphone Warehouse, Tesco, Amazon, Argos and John Lewis. In typical Motorola fashion, all four devices share consistent design themes. You can get a better feel for the phones, see how they look together and how they fit in the hand. The Moto E5 Play will be restricted to the USA, and its price has not been revealed yet, though it will likely be positioned below the Moto E5 smartphone.

They did just that, bringing on the original Moto G to rave reviews.

Moto G6 comes with 5.7-inch Full HD+ 18:9 display and runs on Android 8.0 Oreo.

The camera story on these phones is basic compared to the higher-end Moto G6 series. But they're arriving at an opportune time for Motorola. It sports a 5.7-inch 18:9 full HD+ display with narrow bezels all around.

Website hacked? SC says it is a 'technical snag'
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis on Thursday welcomed the Supreme Court verdict in the Judge B.H. The evidence available has led the apex court to believe that Loya did, indeed, die of natural causes.

The Moto G6 will be available in one colour at launch, called "Deep Indigo". There's no need to hold down the home button or tap anything - simply point the phone at a landmark or object, and the G6 will identify it or link to a Google search where applicable. There's a 3,200mAh battery - as opposed to the G6's 3,000mAh one - and a faster 2.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 630 processor.

The Snapdragon 450 that's been chosen may only be one of Qualcomm's mid-range processors, but it's capable and should suffice for all but the most ardent 3D mobile gamers and multi-taskers. The competition is only going to get more fierce as the year rolls on, but Motorola has proven itself to be one of the world's best - if not /the/ best outright - at crafting quality, affordable devices. Meanwhile, the G6 Play comes with a single 12MP shooter. The definition is however lower than the other two devices, and the fingerprint reader for this model is located on the back. It also has an 8MP front-facing camera with a dedicated LED flash.

The Moto E5 less interesting but it is even cheaper. However, the company did roll-out the Android 7.0 Nougat update for Moto Z Play in India later in February 2017, with 7.1.1 Nougat rolled out later in August.

The last is the Moto E5 Play.

Weather service confirms tornado touched down in Craig County
The NWS has the final say on whether or not the damage was tornadic in nature or was done by straight-line winds. About two dozen trees were uprooted and an outbuilding was destroyed as a result of the storm, officials said.

From stock Android to huge battery backup and from a great display for multimedia consumption to better cameras, the Moto E5 and Moto E5 Plus definitely seem to be an upgrade over their predecessor, and here is a look at what both these smartphones have to offer, as far as specifications are concerned.

The E5 Plus inherits the G6 Play's 18:9 aspect ratio, but has even larger 720p screen, measuring 6 inches. It's the G6 Play that's a little different with the headphone jack on the top and the fingerprint scanner on the rear.

There's no standout feature here on the Moto E5, but if the battery life is good and we find it to work well when running apps and games we use every day there may be a lot to love about the Moto E5.

What excites us most, however, is the battery. Most games from the Play Store should run on the E5, but more intensive titles will likely suffer from long load times and poorer graphics. First off, you won't be getting it confused with any other product in Motorola's USA lineup, as it still has a 16:9 screen and chunky bezels.

China hits USA sorghum with anti-dumping measure
The ruling for anti-subsidy probe will be released later as the two probes involve different procedures and entities, Wang said. It was announced hours after Washington banned American firms from selling parts to Chinese telecoms giant ZTE for seven years.

Many phones have rear cameras positioned very high up, nearly touching the top edge.
