Sheza, 03 Aug 2013Bad phone..less ppi,low battery,old version of android,dual core even samsung galaxy s4 mini u... moresamdung s4 mini has quad core ? open ur eyes dude.
and huve u seen the benchmark results of this phone this defeats even the s4.
and the ppi ur talking about. this is the first amoled screen higher than 300 ppi to use full rgb matrix. so dont compre 312 ppi rgb matrix to a useless 441 ppi with pentile matrix. if u doubt me just see the red or blue colourd images in s4 you can differetiate the pixels in naked eye without straining..
A gesture-based camera best ever
Quickly twist Moto X two times with your wrist, and the screen is turned on, camera app ready to go. Moto X's camera (10-megapixel main on the back does the capture HD video at 1080p, 2-megapixels up front capture HD video at 1080p) also includes an updated user interface and that is 2 times faster than any phone in the market.
Taking a picture only requires a touch, rather than pressing a specific button. Videos require the touch of the video-camera icon, and still photos can be taken during live video capture that amazing with a press of the screen.
In comparaison the "Clear Pixel" More light means better images in low-light and faster shutter speeds in good lighting conditions. The difference is dramatic. In practical terms Aptina promises that its 13-megapixel cameras with smaller 1.1µm (Galaxy S4) pixels can match the light sensitivity of 8-megapixel 1.4µm-pixel sensors (not even the Moto X) 'cause the Moto X spot much better 10-megapixel 1.4µm-pixel sensors with is Amazing.
Smartphone cameras have become the main instrument of photography for many consumers, and having one that is easier to use and functions better would be a big plus for Motorola.
its a new definition of compact and hands freindly design.but considering its prices certainly it is over priced
Nice specs but it will be old in just a few months so patience is a virtue......
Okay! This Samsung fans that doesn't want us to call the Moto X the best phone, would allowed us to call it " The Most Optimazed Phone".
Why the Moto X will sell so well.
Because this phone is marketed at the mass market, not techies. What does the mass market want?
1. Good real-world performance.
2. Good battery life.
3. Pretty Design (if not the best), design to fit well in your palm hand.
4. Customisations, colors and stylish.
5. Best camera with "Clear Pixel" and the fastest taking pictures and HD videos.
6. Clear HD sound
7. "Touchless" with Google Now
8. High end GPU (The "off-screen" benches suggest the gpu is essentially identical than the GS4(Snap Dragon 600). Of course that means Moto X will smoothly frame rates as the gpu is less likely to be a bottleneck on those phones.)
9. Extra Processor for natural language
10. Extra processor for the Real computing.
Moto X seems to satisfy all those requirement.
Mobilemaster, 03 Aug 2013I like that feature about the phone saving your life. This is a real innovation, hats off to t... moreI can even by the 16GB version of Moto X and use the USB adapter cable for phone. Then buy a 32GB or 64GB memory stick and put all my songs and videos in the external USB or even doing a back up in my memory stick at the same time at leave the 16GB for the applications and the Android OS.
You also need to have a look at this link and see how many times the Moto X beat the GS4(Snap Dragon S600) on benchmark.
And please read properly before you post your comment. This site explain very well the roles of the X8 chip system on the phone in the benchmark and the impact that can use in real time.
JACK SPARRROW, 03 Aug 2013You people need to stop saying this is the best phone on the market, it isint. These specs wer... moreIt is not the best smart phone, but it has something which other smart phones doesn't:touchless technology.
You people need to stop saying this is the best phone on the market, it isint. These specs were intriguing a year ago, not today. ...so dont compare to s4 or anything else that is high end right now. And the price??? Whoever thinks that is a normal price is only lying to themselves, this phone is overrated by motorola and over priced for consumers.
vvqwerty, 03 Aug 2013cheap design,good specs.,,.U got it mixed up bud, cheap specs, good design
Here's my take on the situation.
1. Moto X has a 720p display.
a) 1080p over 720 display:- Higher sharpness
b) 720p display over 1080p display:- Lower Power Consumption. Higher performance in Games.
2. Moto X has a dual core CPU.
a) Quad Core over Dual Core:- Higher Performance
b) Dual Core over Quad Core:- NO ADVANTAGE.
When you don't need the extra performance, quad cores consume that same amount of power as dual cores. HOWEVER, if you need more performance the Quad Core Chip will have the extra headroom, but dual core won't.
That's why having a 720p Super AMOLED Plus display isn't midrange.
BUT having a dual core IS MID-RANGE.
Guys even this phone beating the gpu benchmarks doesnt mean its the best! or its better than the other dogs such as gs4 or htc one or xperia z they are still the benchmark king! And at this time they are phone ready to be unveiled with snapdragon 800 and adreno 330 what about after then? this phone is going to be fail than who will buy this if google editions of upcoming phones like lg g2 or sony honami comes out this phone stands no where
! And thats y motorola wont recover from the loss
pulling it out of many counteries releasing it for select places is another mistake
people will still prefer nexus 4 than this! hope motorola does better next time
Droid Ghost, 02 Aug 2013What are you talking about this phone beat the Galaxy S4(octa)
1. in GLBenchmark 2.5 Egypt... moreI like that feature about the phone saving your life. This is a real innovation, hats off to this. About the curved screen. Well, Samsung will make a flexible device soon, and devices with folding style before Motorola.
About it's camera, well we should wait to see some samples, and then tell it's the best!
About the lack of memory card:it's better for a device to have a memory card slot, because you don't need the Internet to access your files.
We will see how good battery it has after a review. First phone with 18 color options. Many colors will be available to people who are living in USA.
Bad phone..less ppi,low battery,old version of android,dual core even samsung galaxy s4 mini use quad core ..camera is good and also design....but other things are very bad
ww, 02 Aug 2013what phone would you recommend with an FM radio that is somewhat time proof?try nokia 1208. the radio is perfect!
Mohibeyki, 03 Aug 2013It did not beat SGS4, the gpu's are the same with s600 and octa's gpu is more powerful on pape... moreThere's no cap in benchmarks and the pretend-octa of SGS4 even cheats at benchmarks which still causes an effect on top of everything.
Same GPU, half the resolution. It's not difficult to se why the Moto X does such a good job. CPU matters less and less because they have already been powerful enough for a long time in top devices. GPU is they main thing now wich makes a difference - even though all top devices bring more than necessary for most users.
This is why the X meets the other quads and pretend-octa in test where the combination of CPU and GPU is measured. Also the X has the 1080p clocked version of the Adreno 320.
It did not beat SGS4, the gpu's are the same with s600 and octa's gpu is more powerful on paper, the fps is capped at 60, you cannot rely on 2fps higher near the fps cap ;) and moto x cpu is less than half of sgs4 (both versions) moto x is not meant to be the most powerful phon ;)
