The Motorola Brand
The Moto M has quite the legacy to fulfill thanks to its name. Previous iterations of Motorola phones have always received a positive reception to consumers and critics alike. Motorola phones have often been praised for their build quality and shelf life, often outlasting their price range competitors.
Likewise the software behind most Motorola phones has often appealed to the Android market. Motorola devices use a near-stock version of Android and is one of the fastest versions of Android in the market, even in phones with lower specs than average.
