Moto G 2013, and Moto G 2015

Weekly poll results: The Moto G 2015 makes a pretty pie chart

In last week's poll, we asked if anyone picked up the new Moto G 2015. The results are about what anyone who's been paying attention would expect — split pretty evenly. We tried to include enough options to keep everyone happy, even including the "shut up about the Moto G 2015" option so you...

What you can and can't (and shouldn't) engrave on the back of your Moto G

I've spent the last hour or so seeing what Moto Maker will allow in the custom engraving box when you order a new Moto G. As you would expect, there's some censorship there, and that's probably a good thing. What's not such a good thing is how incomplete it all is. Previously, you were limited...
