FAIL!!!!! I currently own the Razr HD (xt925, International GSM version)and I was so, sooo anxious to upgrade to this! Oh, what a huge dissapointment. My phone (last year´s flagship, LAST YEAR) has a 2500mah battery, this one is smaller by far at 2100. Both phones are 720p, yet the higher ppi of my phone makes me quite sure my screen will look better than this one even if mine is 4.65 and this one 5 inches. This one has 16gb of internal memory just like my phone, yet it lacks an SD slot like mine???? What were this people thinking, was this all just so that google could quietly kill motorola and just come up with their own hardware once they make moto dissapear? and then there´s the topper, the dual core final touch. To compete with monsters like the Galaxy S4 and Xperia Z and LG G2, yeah.... NOT. This so called flagship with its lack of good battery, of adequate internal memory, its lack of 2013 levels of processing power, and finally to top it off the smallest camera sensor of ALL of this year´s crop of flagship models, it´s SURE to flop. I hate how the Galaxy S4 looks, but it doesn´t look like I´ll get much choice, no matter how much I´d wissh it. ;(
Seriously Google/Moto? This is sub-optimal in terms of specs for a top end phone unless it is meant to be a mid ranger! 294 ppi?
kb, 24 Jul 2013A little expensive considering you don't a Quad core CPU or 1080P screen for $299 on Verizon b... moreNumber of cores does not decide neither price nor power of a CPU. Get that in your head please. Single cores can easily outperform dual and quad cores.
This has a 5" display, meaning it has 0.4" to go on until it would ever be necessary to up the resolution to full HD. This is retina and it will perform much better and look just as great.
Anyhow, if this was Samsung's design, they would call a a quad-core, just like they call their big.little octa cores. In fact, it would be more correct to call this a quadcore, than calling the big.little octa core, because this has 4 CPU cores (2 mains, 1 contextual and 1 natural language processing core) running at the same time.
More importantly the GPU is based on Adreno, so 320 has been mentioned. This should work really well.
A little expensive considering you don't a Quad core CPU or 1080P screen for $299 on Verizon but it'll have great battery life.
Details on Motorola’s X8 Mobile Computing System
Taylor Wimberly posted the specs for Motorola’s X8 system on a chip. The Mobile Computing System will power Verizon Wireless’ new Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini handsets. According to Verizon, it promises to deliver a “24 percent faster CPU, 100 percent faster GPU [and] twice the RAM.” You can browse the details below and hang on tight for those first benchmarks to trickle out.
“A mobile computing system powers the new Motorola devices, as opposed to a standard application processor chip found in every smartphone. This involves eight tightly integrated processors, special algorithms, and sensors. No one except Motorola could create this system. The result is a consumer experience like no other. Below is what it entails and see the next section for what it enables:
• Four powerful graphics processors each running at 400 MHz delivering 3.2 million pixel fill rate,16 shader units, 512kb dedicated cached memory and running the Egypt performance benchmark at a blazing 155 frames per second (FPS). Fully compliant with Android Project Butter.
• Two ultra fast application processors each running at 1.7 GHz, 28nm low-power technology, high?speed dual-channel DDR RAM running at 533 MHz.
• One local natural language processor (L?NLP). Motorola proprietary low?power specialized processor with audio sensors, noise estimators, noise cancellation, and speech recognition technology to enable always-on voice based user interaction without sacrificing battery life.
• One contextual computing processor (CCP). Motorola proprietary low-power specialized processor that computes contextual data from sensors enabling intelligent mobile computing and always-on display mode.
Our main chipset has two CPUs and quad GPUs. We have added two additional low?power processors (Contextual Processor, Natural Language Processor) in our system design. So we are not saying we have an octa-core chip, but we have an octa-core Mobile Computing System. Silicon vendors only like to talk about dual versus quad core main CPUs because that is how they are priced. We have to brand and market our system as opposed to a chip.
Our approach is completely different. We have built a custom system around the application processor. For example, the new Motorola devices do not use the battery hungry application processor to do always on audio or display. We have custom designed our system to deliver great experiences without killing the battery. We have built the first tr
U-nus, 23 Jul 2013plz i need a Quad core mobile in motorola plz let me know when will it be coming...Youd'd better firs get to know Krait, then we talk
plz i need a Quad core mobile in motorola plz let me know when will it be coming...
danielph, 23 Jul 2013What a waste of phone Battery is that small snapdragon from last year only ducal core ???
the... moreThere is some thing calld modification. The phones scores higher than current snapdragon 600. and the battery is awesome.
What a waste of phone Battery is that small snapdragon from last year only ducal core ???
they had to make the battery good atleast if they are not that good they should make the battery like 4000mAH
waste of phone and money
i never had one motorola and i will never buy one
