$575? Can this phone warp us to a space ship? So we can travel around the world in like few second, and our money is same value around the world 1$=1=1¥=1for the rest of the world currency. Motorola phones dropped to 1/2 after you purchase. Or probably it contain super fast component inside, That can calculate our galaxy total planet 100% accurate, and can calculate worm holes location accurately. Lol inflations in the making.

Wow! So the 16GB for $575 and 32GB for $ what if these devices had a 1080p HD screen and a Snapdragon 800 chipset...what will the price be...maybe $675 for 16GB and $729 for 32GB. I have decided as a Nexus man i will just wait for the new Nexus phone.

Mid-range phone with "Designed and assembled in USA" label on it made this phone ultra-expensive. This is crazy.

Go for Nexus 4 instead.

It's no better than Xperia SP or Nexus 4, why pay much more?

Rofl. That's a horrible price. This phone is an epic fail. Had it been ~$299 off-contract, insta-win, but as-is it's a disgusting failure and terribly uncompetitive.

Moto is gone.

That's why they are spending $500+ million in marketing to make the phone appear better than it is and get us to buy it!

Why would you buy this over the LG nexus 4. I mean at least make it competitive. Here in Pakistan you can get a SGS4 i9505 for under $600. And the i9500 for $630.

Google common we have become accustomed to overkill specs like quad cores and 2 gb ram not last gen standards...

The only thing moto x has is lot of colors . Paying a premium price for a bit of customization is a waste of money.
And of course increase the price by making it in USA.

It would be enough with 32GB for me, but let's be honest and see what Apple has done the past years. Granted they overcharge like crazy for more space, but at least they offer it.

too greedy.. 299usd shld be the right pricing for the spec and feature.. 575 will be too expensive and rather go for upcoming mi3 at lower price.. who need a value added features at a high premium?

This gets double the results in GPU, CPU and CPU+GPU tests. Same off-screen results as S4 and One. Only this has half resolution so in actual on-screen performanece it's the better option. And has the better camera.
