  1. New MKBHD Video is live! This should clear up a lot of info and shed light on these crazy moves in the tech industry. *Google Sells Motorola: Explained!* Feel free to +1/Share if you enjoy!

  2. I don’t see myself buying a motorola anytime soon. Honestly I just don’t like their phones. They’re ugly they like to have that bump at the top of the phone which is hideous.

  3. Good video! I’m glad you got that explained and reiterated in the best possible manner. I was increasingly getting pissed at people raging across the internet without thinking through it. Now it all makes sense and happened for the best of android ecosystem!

  4. MAN IT WAS JUST TOO GOOD(Yes it was that good that I had to post it in caps on). Google acquired Moto,got patents from them->Dealt with samsung->Both came to the agreement that samsung would ditch touchwiz(I mean lower it down) and google would sell Moto to reduce competition for Samsung. And what I understood is the Patents google acquired from Moto,stays with Google.

  5. So do you think Motorola will still be completely on top of Moto android updates? I mean, 4.4 came the Moto X before it came to the Nexus 4! Do you think they’ll slow down in terms of updates now that there isn’t Google behind them? 

  6. The question that comes to mind is: Will Samsung back off on the increased implementation of Touchwiz (TW) and/or stop making Tinzen? Honestly, I cannot see Samsung saying that people do not want TW; they are a huge seller of Android products and they have a lot of market sway. They might be in a position to tell Google that they will continue with their internal roadmap as they see fit. I own a Galaxy 3 and I think that the UI is a bit confusing; I do hope that they will stop layering on more proprietary apps onto the OS, but I am doubtful.

  7. When I first heard this I nearly flipped my desk, but after learned more, I’m glad they kept the patents and projects division and evened the playing feild. The S5 with not so touchwizzy android will be alot better. And Google will be able to mainstream Ara, I’m sure of that. Plus the 15,000 patents will stop Apple’s lawsuit rampage. All in all, everyone wins on Team Android!
