    I think they're already competitive, just not in the high end category by choice. Their phones consistently rate high in value & performance in the mid to low end segments. I believe this is exactly where they want to be.

    Yes agree but think maybe the should do 1 high end device this is a window of opportunity for them get more market share .

    Moto/Lenovo's biggest problem for a while has been their abysmal support. It sounds like they've made a couple of baby steps this past year or so in terms of commitment to updates, but it's still well below the standard set by Google and Samsung.

    I truly think so, too, Mustang! Moto has been around for ages, and I personally think they're getting better and better with time!

    At one time Lenovo (Motorola's Parent Company) was one of the largest smartphone companies, but they have been slowly declining. I think they had a good strategy in the US a few years ago, but had a hard time executing. One challenge was their almost exclusive deals with Verizon for their high end phones. We had two higher end Moto phones in our family. We still do and my daughter still uses her Moto mods. I agree they have a good opportunity, but lost a lot by not being in the higher end market when LG left the market.

    I fully agree, but I think they lost a lot of credibility with the Razor. An Expensive phone (at first)with very average specs. Plus tons of HW issues that really did not improve much with an update. They way over promised and really underdelivered.

    From the reviews I have read, even Moto's lower end phones are not keeping up with the competition.

    I think the main problem is the lack of updates. I had two Moto phones, includes the Moto X Pure Edition which I really loved. I got it made with the back, metal and glass in the design that I wanted, and it was unlocked for any carrier. However, it was very slow to get any new Android version or even security updates. I expected more from an unlocked phone. Then I had to send it back because it overheated and the motherboard was fried. When I got it back, the refurbished device they sent me was unusable because they sent it to me without removing previous owner's Google account before doing FDR. I sent back the refurbished device, they sent me another, butI had it for less than a year, and it was overheating again. I decided not to stay with Moto after all that.

    I was disappointed because I really liked a lot of Moto's features like the gestures, etc. that were unique to their devices. If Moto were to get better with updates and quality control, I'd definitely be interested again.

    I've used Motorola once the G4 plus and liked it but in US software updates were bad.
