People are very funny. Google makes a lot of money through Android OS and other services. And they did buy Motorola for patents to protect the OS against mainly Appel.
To day the make the Moto X and build their own chipset to add additional featurings on what comes with the normal CPU like S4 Pro used on the Moto X.
Funny enough, Google master his own Operating System and knows where is going with it and does choose to put advance or high CPU for is OS to run smoodly. That why the X is a High end phone but seem to be mid range.
Funny and very funny the Moto X does what other High end phone can't.
The Moto X is the only phone in this planet to really being "Touchless" and that powered by Moto own made Chipset called X8.
Does Moto care to beat Samsung or Sony? No, No, No
Because all those company can make money because of Google Motorola. But Google would like to beat Appel on his iPhone series.
Google doesn't rush to show up is ultimate device in the market but the best experience device in the market which is simple the Moto X.
At the end if Moto does the Nexus, it will be a Nexus product but not a Moto one although it made by Moto. And this will follow the Nexus program not the Moto one.
Jealousy, jealousy, jealousy is not good. Moto made the best Android ever the Droid or Millestone as pure Android phone and was the best android 2009 and best android seller too. But Moto was along with losed a lot of money previewsly. Still the Droid bring it back to compete in the market.
Today Moto and Google are one. Are you people crazy yo think Moto, I mean Google will not make money or lose by making Android phone?
Keep on Dreaming all your companies (Samsung, Sony, HTC, LG and so one) need deadly the Android OS.
Might be a good phone, im just too much of a tech head not to care about specs, but thats just me lol :)

Optimized hw and sw for current available technology to make mobile phone real useful. I'll make it my phone this year.
XavierTech, 10 Aug 2013There is nothing new. Everything that this phone has can be found on any other version of andr... moreShame on you! You even dare call yourself XavierTech. Which technology do you know?
So tell me was the Moto X8 Chipset Computer System last year? And if it was which company used it?
Xavier, this is not Samsung phone. This is the only phone in the all world that can got this Motorola technology. Which allows you to use the "Touchless" option powered by X8 Computer System.
Meaning with a screen locked you can still use your phone without touching it.
HERE IS ALL ABOUT EXPERENCE NOT SPECS
There is nothing new. Everything that this phone has can be found on any other version of android devices released last year. Nothing attractive.
but a 2200 mah bat wont last a day more to that it makes the specs useless if u cant maximize its potential because ur concern in saving bat :((( too bad moto
what a joke phone, and rogers is advertising it as exclusive* here in canada, no one will buy this junk
Droid Ghost, 10 Aug 2013No sense? just go on the Android market and download an application called "Twisty Launch... moreI said the S4 has something in + compared with the S3. I need to admit Motorola is going to go up, I am glad to see their innovation. We will see what the Note 3 can do.
We will see with what kind of innovation will come Moto and Samsung next year. I am sure Samsung is going to do something awesome too by next year.
Many people are complaining about the CPU of this phone but If Moto Manager to make a Chipset of 8 cores meaning they can buid and can ra 12 cores or more.
Anyway Moto Nexus may come soon rumor says.
Maybe the Moto X with Intel Chipset for the international version.
Mobilemaster, 09 Aug 2013So you say the S4 has nothing in + compared with the S3? Well I do not really think. Maybe you... moreNo sense? just go on the Android market and download an application called "Twisty Launcher" which will be able to launcher your camera by just "an hand gesture" like the Moto X's camera and enjoy the featuring and notice how cool is Moto X.
But that is limited because Moto X does more like with your screen's phone locked you can still do the "hand gesture" and open the camera although it's locked and that is the MAGIC of Moto chipset X8 computing system. No other phone is capable of it, I mean your GS3 or GS4 not even the upcoming GNote 3 with SnapDradon 800 and 3GB Ram want be as smart as the Moto X is.
You think that I talk enough "no sense" to you now? I don't think so Moto X can be more smarter than that they is more like Moto Assistant, Touchless "Okay Google Now", dedicated processor for battery, natural languages, and more power by Moto X8 Chipset Computer System.
Go for your Samsung that like to cheat on benchmarks and releasing the fastest CPU to burn them up.
Sorry! I will say it again Moto X is better than any Galaxy series.
I will just say "Okay, Google Now" than I'm smarter than any one else. Ha ha ha ha ha...
when will it reach tanzania because im interested and how much will it be
Tippo , 08 Aug 2013Card slot is a must have smartphone features, which Motorola has forgotten. It shows a clear ... moreno it's not we have virtual stroge now.so hard drives aren't that necessary anymore.
Will it ever hit the South African market, its a great phone and I would like to own it.
