40 Comments on Google Slaps Malware Apps, RIP Motorola, New Fingerprint Sensor Tech – Android Weekly

  1. I always thought that Motorola was of the past and was not very good but with the Nexus 6 I was proven wrong and now that I was starting to actually like Motorola they are changing the name?

  2. I get that even if they kept the brand name Motorola, Lenovo would still be making the phones, however, I trust Motorola, and I'm sad to see it go. A lot of trust comes with a brand, and Lenovo lost my trust years ago.

  3. Does moto will still get latest android update faster than everybody else except nexus line. More importantly does it remains as stock as it gets or Lenovo gonna bloat it with quote"crapware".

  4. Phasing out the Motorola brand name will just make people confused. It would be better If they did something like: "Lenovo Moto X, with Motorola Technology". The Lenovo Moto X isn't a bad name, its just not good. People are gonna start to think that the Moto devices are business devices because Lenovo plays a big roll in the business world.

  5. So, that means we're going to have the Lenovo logo at the back? Meh, I prefer the normal Motorola brand and logo on their phones. Looks clean. Sad to see the big 'M' go because I'm starting to love my Moto G but as long as Lenovo keeps their branding, it will be fine.

  6. Never been a fan of lenovo since that hidden malware installed on their products. When I buy gadgets I always diss out lenovo products on the list even if it has price per tech value. No to Lenovo

  7. Banning apps for doing sneaky stuff? (0:09)
    Facebook, Twitter, Skype … the ones that sends out non-context related non-silent high priority notifications about adding more friends, follow people or simply trying out features …

  8. WTF? I've always preferred Motorola phones! I still have 3 RAZRs and just got a Moto E as my first ever smartphone! I have heard of Lenovo, but unless ther are able to maintain Motorols'a level of quality and intuitive systems, I'll never buy their products.

  9. Anyone know a good background killer app? I don't want a disabler, but one that can specifically prevent apps from running in the background to free up ram space, and prevent data syphoning? For apps like almost ALL samsung apps (like blur, push, shealth, sidesync), some game apps, or word processing apps like Google based ones that run even when not in use? Though I want to use them when I want to, and then when I exit them, want them to stop running. I've tried developer options don't keep processes. though I feel like that doesn't actually work.

  10. You are too late to the game to contribute to the mobile market, Lenovo. Everyone else already loads their phones with crapware before releasing them, so your expertise on this is not needed. Although, I suppose you could come up with SuperFish 2 for mobile.
