    Since the topic is Motorola, does anyone here have experience with the new Moto G 3rd generation smartphone? I am looking to finally meet the new millennium and upgrade from my LG flip phone!

    aww, I took my first baby steps into assembly with their 68k processors on the older Palm Pilots. Was almost sad to read that. Not fond of the new owners but that's a different story.

    It is, but that story is why I do not care at this point.

    yet another reason to not like lenovo.
    lenovo buy brands and ruin them.
    thinkpad used to be a hallmark is quality and now they stick it on craply made low end hardware.
    the other thing is of course the spyware they was on their computers.

    @lodore You'll find that the quality of the T, W and X series ThinkPads is still very good. The lower end ThinkPads, and non ThinkPad models are ones with questionable quality. Lenovo's K3 Note, was one of the best low priced Chinese phones released last year, and received excllent reviews.

    I just bought a smartphone recently : Moto G (3rd Gen). Not bad! Suitable for my needs.
