However, the imminent arrival of a 6.2-inch Galaxy S8+ (albeit in the same sized body, roughly, as the Note 7), poses an interesting question: Do we need a Galaxy Note this year?

Motorola revealed earlier this year that it sold over 6 million Moto G devices in India since the series debuted in 2013, and last year’s Moto G4 Plus certainly proved to be a  [Read More…]
