Motorola releases 3 new smartphones in Thailand


Motorola is looking to step up its presence in Thailand and has a recently announced the unveiling of three new models on the Thai market.

At present, the phones will only be available through True Move and it should perhaps be noted that all of the models were actually released elsewhere in the world last year but are only now available in Thailand.

The new handsets, the Moto X Style, Moto X Play and Moto G Turbo, run as pretty close to stock Android as you are likely to get, with very little bloat ware (just three apps from Motorola).

Let’s take a closer look at the three handsets.

    I have the Moto G 16GB and am very happy with it, another spec not mentioned is that it’s waterproof.. and the battery life I can easily get 3 days use from a single charge. Due in part to the lower sceen resolution and lack of bloatware.
