The 12 most remembered mobile phones in Motorola's history

Check out this list with the 12 most remembered Motorola phones. Do you like this brand? Then you'll love learning a little about its history.

Motorola Dynatac

Dynatac 8000X

In case you don't know, the Motorola Dynatac 8000X was the first commercial phone in history. This could be held with one hand and its price was around four thousand dollars. As you may have guessed, this is a device that marked a before and after in the history of mobile telephony.

In 1983, Martin Cooper was the one who was commissioned to develop this cell phone whose weight was 800 grams. The DynaTAC's battery was sufficient for a 60-minute call and it took nearly ten hours to charge. Be that as it may, more than 300.000 people have bought it and have begun to usher in a new era of the telephone.

Motorola Microtac


The Motorola Microtac 9800x pocket phone, launched in 1989, was similar to the first Dynatac but smaller in size. When he made his appearance, he quickly began to achieve worldwide success due to his size and practical capabilities.

With 23 centimeters and 350 grams of weight, the mobile incorporated a T9 keyboard that would remain for many years, calculator, speakerphone and a small cover to cover it. Do you remember this cell phone? It is very likely that you have seen this at some point in your life.

Motorola StarTAC

It was the year 1994 and Motorola launched the first flip phone, this one was equipped with a design whose lid was folded and allowed to hide the keyboard. Undoubtedly, it is a mobile that has given Motorola a lot of success.

The StarTac weighed about 88 grams, it was the first to have vibration on calls and even had some SMS compatible versions. Thanks to its 60 million sales worldwide, it is one of the first phones to be sold massively (although it was priced around a thousand dollars).

Motorola Talkabout 182c

The Motorola Talkabout 182c (also known as Motorola Patagonia) hit the market in 2001 and quickly became an excellent option for anyone who needed a quality mobile phone at the time. This is a device that has sold very well in Latin America and around the world. Also, you can change its original case to one of your favorite colors.

Motorola RAZR V3


In 2004, the Motorola RAZR V3 hit the market with a clamshell design that attracted a lot of attention. We are talking about a mobile that has sold more than 130 million units and has become one of the best-selling phones in history.

Undoubtedly, its thickness was crucial for this device to become popular in all parts of the world. This slim mobile phone has become a symbol of culture and has appeared in films such as The Devil Wears Prada or the Lost series.

Motorola ROKR


Even if it's hard to believe, the first iTunes compatible cell phone was from Motorola and not Apple. In 2005, the Apple company teamed up with Motorola to launch the Motorola Rokr E1. Although it is a cellphone with a classic design, it incorporates a music player to change the concept of cellphone forever. In short, the ROKR E1 clearly anticipated the idea of ​​what a “smartphone” is.

Legendary Steve Jobs also presented the Motorola Roker E1 as "One More Thing". However, this mobile is not among Motorola's biggest commercial successes. Be that as it may, it is a historical reason that could not be missing from this list.

Motorola Droid

What if a company like LucasFilm joins forces with an operator like Verizon? An Anrroid mobile phone like the Motorola Droid (or Milestone in its international version) is born. Let's talk about one smartphone with physical QWERTY keyboard, 3,7-inch touch screen, WiFi, 5 MP camera and removable battery. The Motorola Droid was running the Android 2.2 Froyo version, it was one of the first to abandon the Motorola software to bet on the Google operating system.



The first Moto G, launched on the market in 2013, marked a concept that is still valid today. It is a mid-range mobile that offers enviable performance for its price and that has been duly updated to offer a quality Android experience to all who own it. Without a doubt, the Moto G is one of those phones that it makes it clear that you don't need to spend too much money on a device that works really well.

Moto X

Moto X

The Moto X is born from the purchase of Motorola by Google. This mobile has a 4,7-inch AMOLED screen, 10 MP camera, 2 GB of RAM and compatibility with some functions such as "OK, Google" and smart notifications.

The idea was to create something similar to the Nexus, giving importance to fluidity and with pure Android without customization. Ultimately, the Moto X failed to become Google's first choice and Motorola fell into Lenovo's hands.

Moto Z Play

The Moto Z Play is a mobile that stands out for incorporating the idea of ​​modular accessories as «Moto mod». The idea may not have been entirely successful, but it was a clear sign that Motorola has what it takes to continue innovating in this new smartphone era.

This new version of that mobile has a Snapdragon 710 processor inside, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal memory. In addition, it has a 16MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. However, what is most striking about this smartphone is its foldable design similar to the 2004 RAZR VR.
