Its a great phone, no question about that.
It's just disappointing coz it'll only be available in the US and Canada.
It's like "hey! we've invented the cure for cancer, it will only be available in the Philippines!" :p
The next iteration of the Moto X will definitely be a killer phone.
No quad-core, no 1920x1080, no 3G on GSM networks. On the other hand, nice 2GB of RAM. Can't see anything spectacular about design.
Weere is the Motorola's recovery?! I can see X just a new phone but behind Sony's models, even behind HTC ONE.
This is a Verizon/Sprint phone (CDMA 850 & 1900 MHz). Interesting, on the pictures we can see AT&T logo!

P6 stutters and is very very unstable.

I have no problems with Huawei, or with other Chinese smart phone makers, but I am sure Motorola smart phones are much better. This X phone has some special things, which that device you mentioned lacks.
i love this phone. hope the droid ultra has the same features like the camera app and camera specs. cause this phone is only for the US, i was hoping it will also be available in asia
best phone if priced in the range of Rs. 12000 in india when it launces.
If they are braging bout how compact this phone is.. wake up the huawei p6 have same compact size a better battery Li-polimer, slimmer at 6.2mm and only costs 350$. + its a QUad core not a dual core.
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.

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.
