Review: Moto Insta-Share Projector for Moto Z

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

After receiving the Moto Mod accessories to test with my Moto Z and my Moto Z Play (review coming soon!), the Insta-Share Projector was the one I was least enthusiastic about. Once I tried it, however, it became the one I used the most.

One of the more intriguing Moto Mod attachments for the Moto Z and Moto Z Play smartphones was the Lenovo-made Insta-Share Projector which snaps into the back of these devices to create an instant home theatre projector experience.

I'm a big fan of projectors, I savour movies from my collection on 720P HD Viewsonic projector. I use a tiny ASUS S1 Pocket Projector as the TV in my room and take it with me when travelling. I've also used and enjoyed the Celluon PicoAir wireless pico projector.

Review: Lenovo Moto Z

Text and photos By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

On its own, the Moto Z is an inspired flagship device. It’s made of top tier materials, offers the best of Moto’s bespoke software experiences, yet presents users with a pretty pure Android experience with very little in the way of unwanted bloatware (unless you’re getting it from a carrier).

It’s my impression that Motorola, one of the oldest makers of smartphones in the industry, has always seen a future beyond the smartphone. 

Their first Android device, the Droid (sold in Canada as the Motorola Milestone), was the first to have a slide-out keyboard which differentiated it from most candy bar Androids of the time.

The Moto Atrix smartphone, had the ability to be mated to a laptop accessory and even a desktop, it preceded Microsoft’s Continuum feature of extending a smartphone to become a notebook replacement.

With Moto Maker on the Moto X, the company championed customization and personalization, plus they introduced leather, wood, and other materials to the smartphone market. Kicking off a trend that companies like OnePlus, LG, Huawei and others picked up on, but never really pulled off elegantly. Now, with the Moto Z, we're seeing the next phase of evolution.

Lenovo launches Phab Pro 2, the first AR enabled Tango smartphone

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

San Francisco: Lenovo and Google have released the first Augmented Reality enabled smartphone called the Phab 2 Pro which comes in September for US $499. Using four cameras as well as AR sensors, the device can know its location inside buildings, recognize and measure physical objects as well project animations and on screen to create mixed reality scenarios.

Potentially game changing,Tango devices built in unison by Google and Lenovo elevate what smartphones can do as well as extend their functionality beyond two dimensions. During the demos here, we saw how Tango can generate graphics and characters into reality, how it can measure and help approximate 3D dimensions. Another demo showed how, using an app for Lowe's furniture store, it is possible to virtually redesign a home's interior before even purchasing fixures, rugs or surfaces.

First Look: Moto G Plus

By Gadjo Cardenas Sevilla

The Motorola Moto G has always been the puckish upstart, a mid-range smartphone that challenged and defied conventions by giving users some of the best features of premium smartphones (4G data, 720p HD display, long battery life, water resistance, microSD expansion) and placed it in an attractive package and price.

The fourth generation of the Moto G, which comes to Canada in two flavours including the Moto G Plus which we're checking out here, has definitely grown up and I don't mean just in size.
