Moto sold around 1.5 million devices in the UK over the last 12 months. The Moto G is proving a strong seller in a market that is marginally in decline.
UK Managing Director Miles Norman said that the company had enjoyed growth of nearly 30% in Quarter 4 year on year.
Moto are now pushing for third place in the UK in the hugely competitive world of mobile phones. Interestingly another old war horse from the early years of mobiles is also in the running. Nokia have enjoyed some success with new updated versions of old classic phones and some brand new phones too.
Moto is, of course, the name now used by Motorola for their mobile phone division. Like Nokia they were in a much more dominant position in the mid to late 90s with their iconic flip phone designs.
The company is working hard to try and cement and improve on their strong position in the market. The Moto Z range of mobile phones are getting great reviews.
Features on the camera such as selective focus, selective black and white shots and shoot like a pro are proving popular. The phones also come with shatter proof screens that are guaranteed to not shatter. The processor is very fast giving the users a great high-speed experience. The phone also comes with a selection of click on accessories called Moto Mods – these change the nature of the handset as soon as they are clicked on. For example, the Polaroid Insta-Share Printer. It is exactly as it sounds. A mini printer on the back of your phone – take a photo and print it out. The Amazon Alexa speaker – good quality music with the added support of Alexa. The list is impressive – a zoom camera, a higher booster speaker, and mini projector, an extra battery pack, a game pad and stylish wood shell for a cooler look to your phone.
As we move into a world with 5G could Moto be the manufacturer who will break through and challenge Apple and Samsung as an alternative to the big two in market share shaking up the mobile phone market? No one can afford to sit back. Exciting times.
