I like the way you described the differences..even i hate the overpricy phone.Resale value of iphone is way better then samsung..but personally i like the samsung cameras,they take awsome pics.Moto X have 10MP camera but reviewer compared it with other phones and its preety bad.
this phone is really amazing compared to the other droids,, motorola has taken an approach similar to apple. instead of getting into the spec race, they actually got into the experience category. the dual core cpu is not any ordinary cpu racing the likes of nexus and galaxy s3, and other old quad devices. ram is on par . gpu is amazing(check benchmarks),there is 4g,720p screen is good contrary to some belief , 312ppi don't get pixelised. then u have the splash resistance for accidental dropping into water, i think water resistance would be much more better, u can get 32 gb if worried abt space, but i think adding a sd slot wont hurt but benifit this flagship.latest bluetooth,wifi and 10 mp advanced camera is really on par.2200mah battery is pretty good enough for dual core phones, and last but not the 'least latest 4.2.2 jb right now in the market .. overall i would say bravo.. and innovation in the right measure.
By scoring that high with such mid-range specs Motorola challenges other companies caught up in the race of who's got the latest hardware or the highest clock speed,It says that software optimization in a fundamental aspect to look at when building a flagship smartphone .Really Nice work Moto ,i really hope you keep it up FTW :)
I like the fact that they are concentrating on features and user experience and not size and power. If they make a version with the slide out qwerty keypad like the one found on the Photon Q & Droid 4 it would definitely be my dream phone.
real king.......they also beat all others........that time phones and i think next 6 monthes also.....love u Moto.....
Vino31, 17 Aug 2013I need a reliable review before buying this one. All these people can do is to hate each other.Google the review of this phone. You also can download video. From there you will know how the phone perform. From August 23 phone will stsrt selling at AT&T. Then we may have comments from users. Till then just do not bother to read.

It's made in the USA, what more reason do we need to support this phone? Let's get some jobs back to the good ole USA!!!
I made a cheaper version of moto X my self :D
4.5 inch 960X540 resolution
7.6 MP clear pixel with a bit smaller aparture (1.4,1.2)
1.9MP front instead 2MP
1.3GHz dual core krait snapdragon s4 pro
1750 mah battery
Cheaper version 279$ 16GB orginal 399$ 16GB
Demensions :D (4.87X2.59X0.38)
So so....no innovation no impressive...even specs....customizing? but no changeable? once I decide, I can't change its cover? wow.. so exciting....
Droid Ghost, 14 Aug 2013Oooh! Yes! I did compare the Galaxy Note 3 to the Moto X. Because, I'm not blind as you are.
is fast! but its fast for us teens!! i think its only for teens or a social networking phone!
imo, user experience > specs
specs are just what's on paper, not how the phone actually performs. like with an iphone 5. dual core a6 chip, 1.3 ghz. definitely not the most powerful. but somehow almost as fast as the 1.9 ghz samsung galaxy s4. this is mostly because, plain and simply, specs are not everything at all. ios is a snappier os than android and touchwiz is bloated and lags the phone. not to mention the screen is a whole inch bigger so it will take more time to load everything on a screen, and pretty much finish up only a tiny bit later than the iphone 5.
the s4 camera has 5 more megapixels than the iphone 5. but when you compare pictures, do they really look that different? and does the 8mp camera look terrible compared to the 13 mp one? be honest, no. same with the front camera. the real 13 mp advantage is bigger pictures.
not only does the s4 have a bigger screen, but it also has over 100 more ppi. the iphone 5 screen isn't even 720p, whereas the s4 has 1080p. but when you look at the two together, can you really differ from the two that much? infact the iphone 5 may even appear crisper due to the more compact screen.
and that's APPEAR crisper. that's how it is, unlike on paper where IT IS crisper. much like the speed. on paper the s4 IS faster. but the iphone 5 APPEARS almost the same speed.
on paper they still have the same web browsing speed; 100 mbps, but again the iphone 5 will probably load either the same speed or a little faster because there is less to load.
the s4 battery has more than 1000 mah more than the iphone 5 battery, but the iphone 5 has some power-saving features aswell as a smaller, weaker screen to power (which is still fine.) so the s4 only has a bit more battery life.
i could go on, maybe even the screen protection, gorilla glass. gorilla glass is still very strong, so is gorilla glass 3 really necessary and even when you drop the s4 in the wrong place the screen will still crack.
s4 I9505 advantages are of course removable battery, microsd card EVEN THOUGH the storage capacities are ON PAPER, the same 16/32/64. thing is, the amount of s4 variants there are (especially the better ones/ones with prettier colours) just end up pissing off early s4 customers. whereas the iphone 5 releases a phone then only releases its upgrade a year later. this will also keep people on contract happier, they can get a 12 month contract when an iphone comes out, and then know that once it ends they can upgrade right to the next, better variant.
there are so many different things, and tbh i've rambled off what i said at the start but this is what causes iphone 5 vs s4 wars, stuff like people saying that the specs are so much better that it means the iphone 5 sucks, but no. performance and user experience > on paper specs. a commonly used argument is that the iphone 5 is alot more user-friendly and noob-friendly as it is supposedly alot more simple, however imo android isn't exactly complicated...
personally i dislike iphones, i think that they are overpriced and i just get pissed off when people snatch up an iphone and immediately think they have the best phone around. the s4 is only 20 pounds more unlocked than the iphone 5, when it is really for alot more stuff than is worth 20 quid. that's not me saying that the iphone 5 is overpriced and the s4 isn't, i think it could be alot cheaper like the lg g2 has better specs but it is almost £100 less, and that's just on preorder.
just my 2, 3, 4, 5, 6... etc, cents!
Droid Ghost, 14 Aug 2013What your problem?I was not talking with you. I just don't like that old Motorola device he talked about.
I hope it is launched in india with a price tag of 16000 it will shake up the market.
