This phone should be for 1200$ for because it's assembled in u.s even if it had galaxy y specs this should be for 250$
Good spec or good exprrience. Soon we will find out after the moto x is in the market. The buyers of new phone who will decide.
Why Moto X is smarter and sexiest than Samsung Galaxy series.
Galaxy Note 3 specs:
5.68″ Full HD Super AMOLED display (1920 x 1080)
Octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz (depending on the market)
3GB of RAM
13MP back-facing camera with OIS technology
ARM Mali-T628 MP6 GPU
16GB/32GB/64GB storage options
microSD slot supportable of additional 64GB
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
That actually powerful! Right? Does Android 4.3 need actually such hardware? No...
With all this power the Note 3 can't do this functions like on the Moto X.
Moto X Software Features
1. Active Display with (natural languages)
2. Touchless Control (Using your phone even with the screen locked without touching it.
3. Quick Capture Camera (With a Gesture "open your camera's application even when screen locked.
4. Moto X Assist (Sleeping, Meeting but mostly for driving) Once in the car and driving the X does assist you automatocally. Allowed you to call, sms, check the map and more without touching it.
5. Moto X build ( one of the best design and so colorful Customaze up to 2000 ways.
So, Samsung fan do not waste your time with Moto X with care for the "user experience".
Poor Samsung fans, you guys are simply jealous because Motorola has outsmarted you in every department.
Motorola rocks, all other sucks...
Admit or get lost.
JM, 12 Aug 2013i understand that it is not about specs but about experience...but at least propose it at a re... moreYou didn't understant that it is not about specs but experience because you are comparing the price to the GS4 and say that it is expensive.
Moto X got 8 core + a dual core S4 Pro. Meaning they choose to dedicat same cores for specific work.
1 processor for natural languages, 1 processor for saving battery and more...
The result is that the Moto X can do things none of your phones can do. Your GS4, GNote 3, HTC One Maxx, Xperia or whatsoever.
We don't care about specs because we make the Android OS and we know the requirement. Google did optimazed the Moto X better than any phone or upcoming phone.
Best design and cool personalisations! This phone deserve some repect. It is a good phone for a good price too.
Don't come here and tell people not to buy this phone because that pure "Jealousy".
What we are seeing here ladies and gents, with all the news releases left and right on how great Moto X is as a smartphone is the $500M budget allocated by Google working to promote this mid-range phone.
A smartphone is one of the very few things where we need to be very careful with our decisions and choices. I need you to be very discriminating. Is Moto X worth owning for the next two or three years? Even upon its release the tech inside it is already behind -- what more by December - end of this year? How will this phone fare when HTC One Max, Samsung Galaxy Note 3, new Oppo Find 5, and even CrApple's iPhone 5S are finally released by the holidays?
You worked hard to earn your money -- shouldn't your phone able to work hard for you too? Be careful. Be wise.
My first impression was it was too expensive in comparisions to the specs it has to offer but it actually has a total of 8 cores (dual core processor, quad core graphics processor, 1 dedicated core for contextual computing and another core for natural language processing) and the battery does last between 18 to 22 hours with slightly greater use than regular.
i understand that it is not about specs but about experience...but at least propose it at a reasonable price...it is illogical to be as costly as a galaxy s4 which is much faster with better and bigger screen..even slimmer...illogic...no thanx notorola and google
last thing....for a flagship as they call it...at least put the biggest battery you have (i.e. 3500 Mah)
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 :)
