    It means that they're re-branding them, nothing more. If you read the article, Motorola doesn't disappear... but the branding on the phones, instead of being Motorola, will now be Moto.

    We already call them that, anyway!

    "The article adds that phones like the recentMoto X*will now feature the blue Lenovo logo. They will also still retain the classic Motorola batwing-like "M" logo."
    Hold, on, so now MOTO flag ships will have more of the festering crap that is Lenovo on it? It was great for a while, moto, but I'm afraid I'm probably not gonna stick around to see the horrendous lenovo skin on my phone and my moto g becoming a vibe g, because it certainly is not high end.

    I read the article but didn't fully understand it. Doesn't sound good to me. Kinda puts me off getting a moto phone now :/ Don't want Lenovo stuff on the phone just want moto stuff.

    If the phones remain solid, I could care less if there is an M or L on it

    My interest in ever owning a Motorola (Moto) phone is waning with Lenovo acquiring it.

    Sad. The Motorola brand has more prestige in mobile devices than Lenovo does. I hope the device quality doesn't suffer.

    Motorola hasn't been the same after Google sold it. What a shame because the original moto x was groundbreaking with active display and advanced voice commands.

    Moto Assist - the calendar stuff gets baked into stock Android.
    Moto Display - Google comes up with Ambient display.

    Moto brought some good stuff to Android and now Google is letting the Nexus have it.

    Quite frankly, I don't care if it's called Moto G or Vibe - all that matters is how good the phone is for the price. If they keep it close to stock, I'm sure it'll be fine, no matter what they call it.

    Right, but the driving assist portion of Moto Assist never got "baked in" to stock/Nexus devices, and apparently Motorola is removing Assist from their Marshmallow build. Now that's disappointing.

    Assist is gone.

    But Driving Mode is in Moto Voice now.

    As long as their next is "Nexus-like with thoughtful Moto enhancements", the products will be fine.

    It is not really the vibe branding that bothers me, it is that Lenovo, a company who in my personal opinion truly suck are putting their brand onto Motorola phones. When Google sold Motorola, before I ever had anything Moto have made, I was sad knowing that Lenovo would probably ruin Moto and turn it into another IBM, take the products, put their name on it and claim they came up with everything.

    IBM sold their products to Lenovo. Not sure where you're perceiving this "claim they came up with everything" attitude from Lenovo.
