Motorola announces November security update for Moto G8 Plus & Moto Z4, Android 10 a long way to go

Motorola has yet to come up with an exciting smartphone as we come close to the end of the year. There were few hits and misses from the company but none of its products matched the expectation of today’s smartphone user.

However recently, the company came up with a revised version of its iconic Moto Razr, it again fell under the radar due to its mediocre specs considering the $1500 price tag.
