Mobilemaster, 09 Aug 2013So you say the S4 has nothing in + compared with the S3? Well I do not really think. Maybe you... moreNo sense? just go on the Android market and download an application called "Twisty Launcher" which will be able to launcher your camera by just "an hand gesture" like the Moto X's camera and enjoy the featuring and notice how cool is Moto X.
But that is limited because Moto X does more like with your screen's phone locked you can still do the "hand gesture" and open the camera although it's locked and that is the MAGIC of Moto chipset X8 computing system. No other phone is capable of it, I mean your GS3 or GS4 not even the upcoming GNote 3 with SnapDradon 800 and 3GB Ram want be as smart as the Moto X is.
You think that I talk enough "no sense" to you now? I don't think so Moto X can be more smarter than that they is more like Moto Assistant, Touchless "Okay Google Now", dedicated processor for battery, natural languages, and more power by Moto X8 Chipset Computer System.
Go for your Samsung that like to cheat on benchmarks and releasing the fastest CPU to burn them up.
Sorry! I will say it again Moto X is better than any Galaxy series.
I will just say "Okay, Google Now" than I'm smarter than any one else. Ha ha ha ha ha...
when will it reach tanzania because im interested and how much will it be
Tippo , 08 Aug 2013Card slot is a must have smartphone features, which Motorola has forgotten. It shows a clear ... moreno it's not we have virtual stroge now.so hard drives aren't that necessary anymore.
Will it ever hit the South African market, its a great phone and I would like to own it.
Hope they release a maxx version of this one comon this phone should have at least 3000mah battery
Increasing CPU speed doesn't mean innovation, increasing megapixel doesn't mean innovation, moto x is world first active display phone, world first clear pixel camera phone, world first notification on display phone, world first X8 CPU phone, world first customizable phone, world first hands free phone and many many more.

I like Motorola, and quite understand the 1.7G dual core enough for just a phone's performance because I am working in laptop industry, not like out-doors just able to do plausible arithmetic. Yet it is a pity that it doesn't support 1700 band which is a necessity for my carrier. I have to give up for other phones such as sony ones which support my band.
kamikazi, 08 Aug 2013omg unbelievable nexus 4 got android 4.3.3 and this newer andorid phone doesn't have andorid 4.3.3 !Moto X isn't a Nexus phone to get the Android 4.3 although Google owned Moto. They have decided not to give Moto a special traitment when come to the Update or the OS features.
By the way, rumour talks about a Moto Nexus which could come with Android 5.0 in Q4 2013.
I'm interested in Droid Maxx.., 3500 mah battery, come on, you gotta be kidding me, its huge for a phone...
Motorola rocks, Droid Maxx rocks..
omg unbelievable nexus 4 got android 4.3.3 and this newer andorid phone doesn't have andorid 4.3.3 !
jonty007, 08 Aug 2013its too long...but Iqbal Arshad thinks moto x is world's new supercomputer becoz motorola pays... moreSomewhere is right! Just compare the GS3 to the GS4 on usability. There all gonna give you same experience.
What is really innovating the GS3 compare to the GS4?
This is what the Moto X can do and no other phone are capable of.
Without internet connection and most important with your phone locked also playing loud music with your Radio for example. Criminales enter to your room to rob you.
"Just some magic world (Okay, Google Now) then call the police." then you will be follow even if you don't know where your phone was.
u cant trust motorola , as cheaper phones from sony is out and even the xperia nexus is cheap but how do you trust mOTOrola INDIA

One of Moto’s top engineers, Iqbal Arshad, sat down for a Q&A with CNET today to discuss his thoughts on the Moto X, why he thinks it has “world’s first” type of features, and why the technology used in the GS4 or One are inferior to what they have accomplished. This is certainly worth a read. If anything, at least jump to the last question where he talks about future customizable features through MotoMaker.
Arshad on why you don’t need a quad-core CPU, and why their dual-core CPU is not “last year’s”:
For one, we are not using last year’s Qualcomm processor. It’s this year’s processor. It is a dual-core processor, but the thing people have to understand is that in mobile devices, more CPUs don’t necessarily mean better or faster devices. In fact, in most instances no more than two CPUs are being used at any given time. In order to save power, the algorithms controlling the device are often trying to turn off CPUs.
In the stress tests we have conducted on competing devices, we launched 24 websites at once on the device, and none of the devices used more than two CPUs at once to do this.
On changing how smartphones work, and the first dig at Samsung:
If you think about it, the market has been relatively stagnant. Everything is built on these standard chips and displays. And we are all trained to respond to those small incremental changes in these components. But Motorola’s vision is to really change how smartphones work. The small computers we carry around in our pockets aren’t really “smart.” I mean what can you do with the Samsung Galaxy S3 that you can’t do with the Galaxy S4? The answer is nothing.
We aren’t developing technology for technology’s sake. But we are trying to make mobile computing more intelligent.
On how innovative X8 architecture is and why no one else is doing it (Samsung and HTC):
We have come up with a new processing architecture that allows us to do things like touchless control without sacrificing battery power. For a Samsung or HTC device to offer the same kind of functionality would require three batteries. And that is the reason why no one else has done touchless control. Nobody has done it because it kills the device’s battery life.
None of those other processors could do all the noise cancellation and offer the same level of intelligence and still be low power. What we have done with the Moto X has not been done before. It’s the world’s first.
On defeating the spec war that chip and display manufacturers have created:
It’s hard because people are programmed by the industry to look at things like how many cores a chip has or whether the display is 1080p. That’s how chip and display manufacturers differentiate their products. But we’ve spent thousands of engineering hours building a new kind of processing architecture that will really change how people use their phones.
On the Galaxy S4 “beating” the Moto X’s display in terms of pixels per inch:
First of all, what Samsung has done with the GS4 screen is not true 1080p. Instead, Samsung is using a PenTile display. Each pixel is made up of three color sub pixels. It’s missing one of the pixels. We are using a true RGB pattern custom display that gives true color reproduction without wasting battery life.
Samsung is using a graphics processor, but they’re using it the wrong way and their performance is actually worse than ours. They are burning more battery life. In the case of HTC, they’re using an LCD screen, which is simply an inferior technology.
Also, the human eye cannot discern resolution beyond 300 pixels per inch. And we exceed that. So the eye can’t even see the difference. But the human eye can see big differences in color saturation and reproduction. In fact, I’d say that is even more important than resolution. So we decided to focus on that aspect instead.
On adding future customizable features to Moto X (like RAM, screen size, processor, etc.):
We do have a road map for extending the capabilities of the device and customization in the future, but I’ll talk about that in the future.
Yeah, I’d say Arshad has heard about enough when it comes to criticism of the specs of his Moto X.
Card slot is a must have smartphone features, which Motorola has forgotten.
It shows a clear sign of fading from the main stream.
Yes, those are accurate. The HTC One has 4.7 screen too, and compare them side by side, and the Moto X is ways smaller.
So sad for Motorola, there's nothing "innovative" in this phone, No Micro SD slot, 4.7" HD screen(full HD is in now)5" display would've been nice, Dual-core(Quad is the new high standard), Gorilla Glass(Gorilla Glass 3 is available).... Motorola, give us something 2 drool over!!! Not this crap!!! There's chinese made Full-HD phones with better spec's than this crap!!
I like this phone especially the features of the phone. I am waiting for international version. I like to see external SD card, micro sim s9 I can swap card, and price is more competitive. Then I will buy this phone
