pricing rumors seem: reasonable with 300 dollars from the 16 gb model and 350 for the 32 gb model (without contract). Nowadays people are making phones bigger and bigger but it seems to me that this phone is going to feel just good in the pocket.
So not too big and neither too expensive with a great interface... Whats not to like? apart from the rumors that said incredible features would come to the phone but you just end up with a well- specced mid-range phone.
I'll admit i was expecting a bit more but at this price this is an interesting device.
mas39, 25 Jul 2013What a joke, everyone calling this a game changer, the Sony Z Ultra, now that's a game changer... moreYou're comparing oranges and apples. Xperia Z Ultra is a high-end phablet (costing 700 EUR), while Moto X is going to be a mid-end smartphone (will cost around 300 EUR). Why do you need a 2.2GHz quad-core processor? The only thing that comes to my mind is playing games, but if you want to play games buy a computer or a console, not a phone.
What a joke, everyone calling this a game changer, the Sony Z Ultra, now that's a game changer, how can this moto X be a game changer, same size as last years, same specs as last years, I'm sorry but this is a real fail. The Sony Z Ultra is guaranteed to be the phone of 2013 so please all of you here, don't bother talking this boring Moto X up, it won't make any difference.
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2013Does moto x have a status indicator light?it has something much more feature rich. it uses the LED screen and flashes your notifications against a black background.
google: moto x active notifications
Too late and so yesterday spec. I have RAZR and I bought it more because of its design. But after the acquired by Google the design become soooo boring, it's Samsung alike.
Motorola has breakthrough concept and design, but it's only for once or twice. And when the idea was succeeded, they will be "trapped" in that idea for so long until the idea become so outdated.
Will it have MicroSD Card slot? According to GSMarena's specs, it has.
there must be 4000mah battery. to work for whole day in hard use. two Day's in normal use
Yeah, it can't be more than 250$. Google already have the higher end covered with a 299$ phone.
Rumor is the components are older and cheaper because its going to sell for ~200$. Realistically though its not worth more than 250, as tge N4 is 299 and it has twice that performance and rest is the same.
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2013really this preliminary results dont mean very much,i belive the nexus 4 will still be faster ... moreThe nexus 4 is surely faster, but hopefully this Motorola will be cheaper. Thats the only obvious way it can be successfull
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2013Exactly. It's incredible how people still think that more means better or faster. Eg, iPhone 5... morereally this preliminary results dont mean very much,i belive the nexus 4 will still be faster than the "show off" version of the moto x
Marco M, 22 Jul 2013More cores does not not equal greater speeds.
Really looking forward to this phone. Hope it... moreExactly. It's incredible how people still think that more means better or faster. Eg, iPhone 5 has a dual core and it smashes the Galaxy S3 and its quad core in most of the benchs. Actually Moto X Phone has better results in benchmarks than Nexus 4.
Moreover, we have reached an inflection point where the number of cores or the clock speeds are close to irrelevant mainly because at a certain point you won't be able to notice better clock speeds/more cores, because the software is not able to use all the power or just because this phones have enough power to do 99% of the daily tasks (check your email, use the GPS, Whatsapp, update your Facebook, read your News Feed, Twitter and so on...) fast and fluid and the only reason to acquire a quad/octo processor is just for games or some 3D, but what's the point on playing on a machine whose battery is dying after 45 minutes of playing in the best case?
This phone is going to be one of the best of 2013 and the first of a long saga.
