It was sealed in it's original and with manufacturer's packaging. As again, it works fine for daily use with a few stutters here and there. The latest Android Firmware Version in device is the official Lollipop 5.1; it is unable to upgrade higher than that.
Battery life is mostly okay (as being new), except for pressured usage where the percentage dips a lot. If it had the Qualcomm's QuickCharge 2.0 technology, I will have considered it the best smartphone in the world (Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset still handles N.F.S. Most Wanted & Real Drift Racing games quite well).
But..the compact screen size and one handed compatibility far outweigh the battery charging speed. :-)

If so, which one? Have you ever had your battery replaced, or are you still using the same battery? Has battery life been good for you still?
What's your secret? :-)
Almost five years clocked up for this device! It will be 5 years since first release in August of this year. This phone is still functioning very smoothly as my daily driver; a smart downgrade from Moto X 2014 mainly due to it's screen size and one handed comfortability.
Truly of it's Kind - A Compact Device .
The original moto x had the perfect dimensions, a more hits than miss camera, an ok battery and a great display . If I could take it apart and upgrade the battery (even better if it was swappable). If someone make a phone like I just described I would buy two of them. It is a petty there is no phone like that on the market. Sony experia compact is the closest one to it better on some aspects but over all not good enough.
THE BEST SMART PHONE OF 2K13
Samsung S2,moto x,Samsung note 3,I phone 5s
Moto x 1st gen was my best phone but unfortunately it died
Competitions among smartphones were limited on those days so they concentrate on every new smart phone they built....they took time and energy to create marvelous phones like moto x....while moto X4 was a complete flop.
The 4th generation of X series which was developed by lenovo just ruined its series....I have also record lenovo phones and their hardware is just poor.
Moto x 1st gen:
#outstanding amoled 4.7 inch display(kind of bezel less)
#solid and sturdy performance
#few phones which had 4G on 2k13
# gorilla glass 3
#voice unlock feature
#best phone for rooting
#fair battery life
#back panel was easily breakable and scrachable
#no memory card slot
#not a dual sim phone
That's it...thanx guys for reading
Wish moto be built by google and not lenovo
I know this phone is dated but about 9mths ago I came across a seller who had some new ones of these for about £90...obviously old stock...but I bought one took it home. I ran all the updates that were easy to install and was so impressed with the phone I went back and bought the last one he had as a spare.
Now I know many of you will wonder why I didn't go for another up to date phone but I have to tell you this is everything I need. It's small enough to fit nicely in one hand, small enough to put in a suit jacket pocket without bulging and fast enough for my needs.
Having looked at the other versions of the Moto X this is still the best looking on they have released.

When a new "Moto X 2013" ?
I bought a 1st generation Motorola Moto X a week ago (Nov 2017) and have been giving it a thorough (every day user) testing since. Prior to buying it the read reviews online were largely positive with only 1 or 2 people critical about it's performance. I feel that I'm unable to fault it and it has more than lived up to my expectations. Yes for the techgeeks among us, it doesn't have the most powerful processors, 1080p display, 15MP+ camera or the latest android OS. However for everyday use none of this really matters. For a reasonable price new (about £100 - £120 in 2017). It delivers all that your average everyday user will need + more. Battery life is very good, the screen in my opinion is excellent, the camera is very good with easy and useful functionality and 2GB of ram is plenty. The best thing in my opinion is how ergonomically designed it is. It sits very comfortably in the average size hand, especially with its smoothed edges and the 4.7" screen feels bigger than it really is covering almost all of the phone. All making 1 hand use much easier than with the 5" or 5.5" screens. I can't vouch for other phones of similar spec such as Samsung's, LG's etc. But for the price I think this one's tough to beat.

It have a perfectly functional 4g connection.

Hello! I have a Moto X since the fall of 2014 and still works quite well. I would like to change the battery if possible, has anyone did this so far(in a shop of course not by myself)? I am also facing some issues from time to time with the usb port for charging and the phone seems that developed a special relation only with a usb cable (I don't even know if is the original one). Has anyone experienced something similar? Thank you!
