    Here is an interesting rumor. The return of the Motorola Razr V3 as a folding smart phone? According to a new rumor that might be coming as early as next month, with a hefty price tag.

    From the Verge: Motorola’s RAZR is returning as a $1,500 folding smartphone

    Good thing I traded in my blackberry storm instead of my V3 razr. Saved myself 1500 buckaroos. Might need a new battery

    The folks over at XDA posted some rumored renders of the 2019 Moto G7. From all the rumors it sounds like another stellar mid range phone, and will continue the Moto G reputation for being a great phone for the money.

    Here is a rumored video of the rumored Moto G7 Power. Being a rumor, take it with a grain of salt. But....for me personally, if Verizon sells the G7 like they do the G6 I might actually get one of these. I'm not one of those people that has to have a "flagship" phone. Give me a good phone, with snappy performance, decent battery life and clean Android & I'm happy. The Moto G series checks all those boxes, and the G7 Power could be very impressive if the price stays similar to the G6 line.

    Motorola Moto G7 Power Spotted!!!:

    The G Series never has the best specs. That's why they are mid range phones. But if you have never used one.....you wouldn't know it's a mid range phone if it was in a nice case. The OS is clean & smooth, with great battery life. They aren't meant for heavy users, or die hard tech enthusiasts. They are meant for people on a budget, or just don't like spending a lot to get a nice phone; and pack a whole lot into a phone at a really good price. That's the appeal.....not the specs on paper. They are very popular in Brazil, which would reason why many of the Moto G launch events happen in Brazil.

    Here is my problem with moto phones:
    3 z phones (regular, force, play)
    1 X phone
    4 g phones(regular, plus, power, play)
    3 e phones (regular, play, plus)

    That's 11 phones about every year(i know there wasn't force last year) but the point still stands. They only need to have 3 models. Budget with lowest specs and price about 100, mid tier with decent specs and mediocre price around 300 and a flagship that has best of everything for 600-700. They are too fragmented for their own good. Options are good to have but when you have 4 models of a mid tier phone something is wrong with your marketing.

    I don't have a problem with all the choices. It's basically 4 phones with slightly different hardware components to cater to a variety of users; gamers, power users, basic users, etc.

    Agree with Xeene: 11 is too many.
    Even 7 would be an improvement. 2 budget, 3 mid range, 2 flagship.
    And that's still pushing it.

    I do agree that their marketing plan may include too many phones within the same model line, which could be confusing for some shoppers. But at the same time, they are not all available within the same market regions. So maybe it all makes sense in the countries where most of the G and E lines are sold? A simpler approach would make a little more sense to us, but maybe it all makes sense where many of these are sold?

    Now...back to the rumors, speculation and RUMINT.
