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.
