TORONTO, July 28, 2015 /CNW/ - It might not be something we like to admit, but we're all in serious relationships with our phones.
We trust them with our most personal questions, photos, stories and secrets. They never leave our sides. Most of us have slept with our phone1. And nearly 1 in 5 people would be more willing to give up seeing their significant other, showering or sleeping than having to go without their smartphone for a weekend1. Now that's devotion.
But let's face it, most of the time, these relationships are one-sided. Our phones simply aren't as devoted to us as we are to them. They desert us with a dead battery when we need them the most, embarrass us during important meetings, and pester us while we're driving, demanding we take our eyes off the road to pay attention to them. And needless to say, most of the time, our phones rarely match our personal style. No wonder less than half of people say they are happy with their phone.
At Motorola, we believe everyone deserves the choice of a better mobile relationship. One that is personal, fulfilling and stands the test of time at a budget that fits.
Your phone should know you by the sound of your voice, but also realize when you want to be left alone. It should offer a customized look that perfectly complements your individual style. It should keep you safe with easy-to-access, hands-free control. It should grow with you, learning your preferences and habits, getting better over time. And it certainly should be with you for the long haul: durable and water-repellent.
Today we are announcing the next generations of our most popular phones — Moto G and Moto X — giving you the mobile relationship you never knew existed. The new phones feature best in class cameras, meaningful software experiences and personalization options - all at exceptional prices.
The new Moto G: The phone that's always there for you.
The new Moto G is ready to weather any storm with you, literally, thanks to IPX7-rated protection and Corning Gorilla Glass, so you're safe from drops into water2 as well as unsightly scrapes and scratches on your display. With an all-day battery3, it won't ever bail on you when you need it most and it's ready to capture new memories with a flick of the wrist with a 13 megapixel camera. Personalize Moto G with Motorola Shells available in a variety of colours and materials.
The new Moto X Play: Finally a phone that loves you back.
With up to 48-hours of battery life and a water-repellent design, Moto X Play will love you back day and night, rain or shine. Stay connected on your commute, at work, at play and whenever you need it most—and still have enough battery to get you into the next day. When you finally need a battery boost, get up to eight hours of usage with a 15 minute charge using TurboPower4. Take brilliant photos and stunning videos with its 21 megapixel camera, and show them off on the edge-to-edge 5.5-inch HD display. And living up to its name, get all the power you need for gaming, streaming, and multi-tasking at the speed of life with a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ processor.

Out-of-box settings are applied to the mixed use profile to project battery performance. Actual battery performance will vary and depends on many factors including signal strength, network configuration, age of battery, operating temperature, features selected, device settings, and voice, data, and other application usage patterns.
