The Moto X is a phone that I’ll never forget. It doesn’t have a fantastic impression right now because of its specifications, pricing, and execution. For starters, it features a 4.7” AMOLED display with a resolution of 1280 by 720, 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, an quad-core Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB storage options with no microSD expansion, 2200 mAH battery, Android 4.2.2, and a few other depressing specifications. Pricing starts at $199 on a 2-year contract for the 16GB model, and $299 for the 32GB model. There are 18 colors, and 2 separate wood options. A phone that offers a price point of $199 on contract, a dual-core processor that is a few generations back, features that are gimmicky, and Android 4.2.2 is a joke. It is not up to par, and Google needs to realize that making phones that are sub-par is no longer accepted in this thriving market. It is sad to see Motorola offer a total of 20 different back-cover options thinking that this will be a ‘big phone.’ I personally think that this phone will sell less units than the HTC First that ran Facebook’s OS. Overall, it seems to be a tough journey for the Moto X in the upcoming months.

What do you think of the Moto X? Do you think it is a joke? Let me know in the comments below!

    Android are the best so far, with more competitive, they come with more powerful giant hardware. But apple product remain regular and “sucks” in another word. Because apple think they can win by using lawsuit against better companies. Besides, i really don’t like this article. Your opinion come from your own shit. Nobody cares.

    This article is bad. If you actually looked up some benchmarks on the Moto X you would see that it’s CPU performance lags a little behind the newest and greatest android phones because they went with a dual core processor, however it still performs reasonably well and it has really good battery life because of it. The GPU performance in the phone is among the best available. Android 4.2.2 is not really outdated android 4.3 came out a couple weeks ago, and honestly there isn’t a whole lot of difference other than bluetooth. The design is a little generic and medoicre for my taste (it actually looks alot like a newer apple product), but that wouldn’t stop me from buying it if I really wanted one.

    I’m not going to buy one because I’d rather have a different chipset, but I like what they did with it and I think its a really solid choice in it’s pricerange, but maybe that’s because I game alot (hence me liking the insane GPU performance) and I place a ton of value on battery life. I’m still using an Iphone 4S (the last decent product apple made, but I’m highly dissatisfied with IOS 6 and the shitstorm of battery life issues), and I have had android phones in the past and currently use an android tablet. You’re just another fanboy…

    I my MotoX! Not only because it is the only phone that is Made in USA or at least assembled in the USA, but because it is simple, light and customizable. I think your review may be great for the people who must have the latest everything in our throw away society, but I came back to cellphones just to have it. I conducted a 2-year test away from cellphones in which I experienced utter peace. Maybe the reviewer should try it.

    Blows the IPHONE away. Best phone I have owned. I have had the 4, 5 and 5S. MOTO X is amazing and only the beginning of the return of MOTOROLA as a leading brand with the power of Big Brother Google backing them. This phone has something APPLE forgot. Innovation and creativity. Best buy phone of 2013 no contest. Screen makes IPHONE look like a toy.
