Just check the GLBenchmark 2.5 Egypt and 2.7 T-rex. Same performance as the top ones at 1080p offscreen. ONly the competitors do run 1080p, this runs 720p so in real life performance this will run much better. And take better photos as well.

Main problem with this phone is availability.

Nowadays people are more patriotic towards their purses than their country. So if u think 'Made in USA' tag will make'em shell a couple of hundred bucks extra, u r kidding urself.

come to think of it, as price point perspective it is a little bit expensive for it, i'd say 400 to 450 should be reasonable for me (compared to iph*ne 5, it is as the same specs, dual core cpu and quad core gpu), but to see in other perspective, it is good news for android if Motorola as Google owned company can focus to make the user experience and maximize the software experience, so it's a good sign that Google might change their focus to maximizing the OS rather than just boost the hardware..

Better get the Xperia SP.... was planning to get moto x....but why not get the Galaxy S4 or HTC One with that money. Feature n spec wise Moto X doesn't even come close to those. Motorola n Google just pulled off an Apple
