Motorola Re-entering PH Market

Will pinoys welcome them with open arms?

Remember Motorola? The company responsible for making the excellent, customizable Moto X and the Nexus 6? Well, apparently they are making their return to the Philippines – we’ve gotten an invite for a short sit-down and powow with the company on the 15th, where they’ll be meeting us and select members of the press to talk about several products that will be released in the Philippines later this month.

Motorola was a prominent name in the local scene back in 2006 until 2009 thanks to their Razr line but lost steam as the first generation iPhone and Android devices rose to prominence. We’ve been wondering just when exactly the company would return to the PH, and now that they’re a part of Lenovo, it seems that the time is right for them to make a comeback.

  1. Consumers will be hard-pressed to buy handsets like the Moto E and G with the slew of affordable MT6752 powered phones in the market these days, but it’s likely that there will be a small demand for their more uniquely featured handsets like the Moto X 2014 and Moto Maxx (VZW Droid Turbo in the US).

  2. Tingin ko yung demand sa upper midrange naglaho na ng tuluyan, tsaka masyadong underspec’d yung mga entry level ng Motorolla, wala silang lulugaran dito IMO, mahal sila magpresyo both ways, kakainin sila ng buo ng mga bang for buck brands

    1. The Moto E is a great budget phone. Snapdragon 410 with LTE and guaranteed updates from google unlike locally branded phones with bad after sale support and virtually impossible OS updates.

  3. feeling ko pricing nila is: moto e -4990-5990 moto g -8990-9990 moto x -23990-26990

    sana ang gawin nilang pricing: moto e -3990 moto g -6990-7490 moto x -17990

  4. If they sell the Moto E 2015 (the Snapdragon 410 one) for 5k or below then I think it will sell even if the camera is crap because it offers the best battery life of any handset they have (even better than the Moto Maxx/Droid Turbo based on reviews).

    1. Hindi lang big, It’s a monumental challenge, considering that their phones are not priced competitively

  5. Price phones competitively that’s what I hope for motorola. Kahit di bleeding edge ang specs like sa moto x 2014 ayos naman ang software experience plus the fact na stock and pa siya and will get updates on time. Hope this will be an opener that not all the time a phone’s hardware is the basis but also the software experience. Seen reviews o their flagship madaming magandang reviews especially sa kay MKBHD at sa Android Authority. Camera lang ang problema (4k and slo mo recording though) battery? Dpende na yan sa user.

    1. Medyo naaartehan ako pag Android Authority nagreview ng smartphone,maarte sila di katulad ni Marques Brownlee (Sorry kung wrong spelling),na simple lang..

  6. Motorola, if you’re listening. See that Nexus? That’s what people want. But cheaper.
