This week on the SyrupCast, MobileSyrup features editor Igor Bonifacic is joined by managing editor Patrick O'Rourke and telecom reporter Sameer Chhabra to talk about Motorola's new phones and Patrick's look back at the iPhone X six months after the phone's release.

Motorola just announced its 2018 series of mid-range smartphones. The team discusses the strategy behind Motorola releasing so many mid-range smartphones at once, as well as Sameer's experience at the company's G6 and E5 preview event in New York.

On the high-end of the smartphone market, Patrick discusses what it's been like to use the iPhone X for the past six months. His main takeaway is that the gestures he initially found clunky are now so ingrained that he has a hard time using any other smartphone. He also has new thoughts on the look of the phone.

Tune in to hear the SyrupCast team's thoughts.
