There are just three options for this thing:
1. Mediatek MT6589.
2. Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 (8625Q)
Or in the best case: 3. Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (8x26)

From all of those only the S400 can handle acceptably the 720p otherwise the games will look kinda bad.

And the Nexus 4 8GB for $99 dlls was a big deal for a quad core phone no other match that. Even $199 regular price is a deal.

And was Sold Out in matter of hours...

This seems to have none of the moto x unique software enhancements - if it did surely they would be flagged on the poster? - and significantly weaker hardware specs.

Junk.
