Anonymous, 20 Oct 2014i wonder how shall you be able to know how much water resistance this phone can take ? i mean ... moreMotorola isn't cheap but give quality for good price. Motorola Defy was the first android phone to have waterproof certified 1m30 under the water then make the Defy Plus after that they changed the politics of certified waterproof phone and decided to make phone with water rappellent coating which is not cheap but different from the IP67 but cost less and can be used on each model Motorola make to protect the internal circuit on the motherboard against water while the IP67 does not allowed water in.
But the water rappellent coating does a good job because the phone isn't claimed or certified waterproof but the Motorola technology allowed the All Droid Ultra, Mini, Maxx, Moto X, Moto X 2014, Moto G, Moto G 2014, Moto E very cheap phone to have water resist capability and resist in water up to 30 minutes for the highest risque of getting water damage.
Motorola since first RAZR XT910, have water repellent coating surface and was the first OEM who made water proof phones with Android, it's not a new feature and works like a charm even on the cheapest Moto E for $150 you get water resistant that not cheap but special but the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 does not have water resist but cost $800 and that a shame for Samsung.
if the nexus 5 was for all people then i am pretty sure this phablet wont be for all people anymore , add to that a heftier price a lot of people cannot afford and then u would know for sure whether its for all people or not, the idea of nexus was a good specd phone with a mid range price now it's gone....google going for more "apple" taste.
Tcool, 20 Oct 2014LOL!
Did you see the cost of this brick?
EUR 570, OMG!
EUR 570 for a phone without espansio... moreSorry, but your comment is a bit misguided.
First of all an FM Radio Transceiver is quite rare and not a main selling point of any current device. None of the Nexus 6's main competitors (i.e. iPhone 6 Plus or the Samsung Galaxy Note 4) have an FM Radio.
The battery is equal to "Samsung Galaxy Note 4) or better than the competitors (iPhone 6 Plus with 2915 mAh).
All Motorolas have a Super AMOLED display. The fact this isn't listed here is only because the phone isn't out yet and thus the specifications are vague.
The front camera sits yet again right between its competitors - Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has 3.2 MP and the iPhone 6 Plus has just 1.2 MP. Although the resolution isn't all in this case. Pixel size etc. is also a major factor.
Oh, and the Nexus 6 is still at least a $100 cheaper than its competitors.
So before you spew nonsense, please show a competing device of the same class that actually offers the features you mentioned at the given price.
i wonder how shall you be able to know how much water resistance this phone can take ? i mean on samsung or sony u know that the phone can be underwater worst 30m so means u can shower and whatever with phone but with this? i doubt the warranty will cover any liquid damage so to me this phone does not have any protection against water or dust... a little water splash on the display most phones should handle but more then that i would be afraid... Considering its so big it should have had min IP67 rating.. motorola is cheap i hate them.
All the specs are upto-date .! Except the absence of cardslot.. What will u do with A Qhd screen , 2k shooter without cardslot ?

AnonD-72853, 20 Oct 2014Thanks for waving that white flag. I appreciate it. ha ha... LOL.
ok I tried to think from your perspective you may be right at your side but still i am not completely satisfied. Right now moto x 1st gen is available at a price of 290$ (18k) on flipkart. It has all the necessary specs that one must look into and at this price point I am getting touchless controls, with stock version of android and guaranteed updates, Now tell me what is the deal breaker in this case.? Isn't it value for money.? All i mean to say is that company is giving every possible features according to pocket sizes of people.
AnonD-150159, 20 Oct 2014who wrote what phrase first is not the matter actually the only thing matters is value for mon... moreYour mi3 is not even 4G.
I don't want a snail phone.
Honor 6 is 4G with 5MP front camera which is good for self portrait.
It has 3100mAh battery and ultra power saving mode which will make the battery last for days.
Honor 6 memory can be expanded up to 64GB.
It is more ergonomic than mi3 due to small body dimensions.
3.5mm jack supports Dolby Digital Plus sound enhancement.
Those features are useful and worth the price of Huawei Honor 6.

EUR 570 for a phone without espansion memory, no FM radio, only 3220mAh battery with huge dimensions and thick body, no SUPER AMOLED screen, only 2MP front camera. Are you feeling lucky?
Open your eyes, FGS!
And please, your mi3 is not available worldwide, perhaps only in India and as I told you, India is not the whole world.
Why would I buy a phone that is not available in where I am or other parts of the world?
Tcool, 20 Oct 2014You mentioned "designed for humans", that phrase was first used by Samsung Galaxy S3... morewho wrote what phrase first is not the matter actually the only thing matters is value for money. If the product is providing the best value for money then its obviously good. I am unbiased to companies. Its not that I hate samsung or chinese brands because I kno every company has some good as well as some bad products but the thing is I am a customer and I think from a practical point of view. I dont think LTE CAT 6 is quite goin to be used by any user at least upto 2 years. After that in upcoming future it might be a good choice but you neva kno, may be at that time 3 GB RAM could be considered low. Contries where this feature works can consider it a good device , I am not denying that.But I said particularly about India bcoz it has been launched here as well. So if you think that paying extra 6000 over mi3 can get you a better product in the form of honor 6 then go ahead. But I feel that mi3 is better than honor 6.
Regarding moto x, it is clear that you are already not liking the company and so the phone. otherwise this series of phones is providing stock version of android at minimum possible price and it matters to a lot of people who want lag free and fluent experience in their devices. I am not forcing you to like the phone but open your eyes bro and see if something is costly then why it is so.? It will make you a smart customer instead of just having a lot of non usable apps which are constantly eating up RAM of device.
AnonD-1846, 20 Oct 2014Many people like discriminating phones made in China while most of this company build some of ... moreThose people doesn't even know anything about smartphone technology.
They just see the name of the brand and where it is made, no matter how basic and ugly their phone is.
and its not that people hate chinese but the reputation they've made in the market makes them think so. Now xiomi is also chinese but why most people are buying it because now people are understanding the quality differences. Xiomi offers every thing like in good quality like a qualcomm processor , adreno GPU so its upto company if they want to change impressions they can, by providing quality.
AnonD-150159, 20 Oct 2014sorry for that 294 ppi review i misunderstood there.
No doubt its a good phone but still some... moreYou mentioned "designed for humans", that phrase was first used by Samsung Galaxy S3. Hahaha! Where have you been? Still stuck in 2012?
When I said future proof, means it is advanced, you can still use it when LTE-A CAT6 will be implemented.
Not like your Moto X, will be left behind the past.
And you are specific about India, FGS, India is not the whole world. Please state comments in general, not for any specific country.
Not all people buying smartphones are from India and not all of them use it in India alone!
This is the fone with no compromise, except for the size I think is too big...

And when comes to the potential market still China is those whom buy the most for good market after USA, you will get countries like India with good potential and they make their own phones too and get better and better day by day.
Tcool, 20 Oct 2014uLOL!
Huawei Honor 6 has JDI 5.0 inch FHD Incell screen, pixel density of up to 445 PPI, ho... moresorry for that 294 ppi review i misunderstood there.
No doubt its a good phone but still somewhere interface matters a lot and LTE connectivity is not yet going to work in India properly and the time it will be working properly every 2nd phone will be LTE supporting LTE and buying a technology that is not even going to help much is not a very good idea. Instead of that an intelligent customer must look for something more practical. Moto x has most advanced voice commands. Now i must say its not a feature that we use every now and then but there are 3-4 commands which really make this feature a very good deal. Setting the alarm without even touching with absolute accuracy is one of them as the phone is constantly listening to you 24 by 7. So its the innovation and definitely a feature that is not there in even i phone 6. and about design its obvious that we all have curved palms so moto x is actually very very nice to hold as if it is designed for humans. i personally think if you are getting almost all the nice and practical features with latest OS and no lags at all then its obviously a good deal.
AnonD-150159, 19 Oct 2014Now thats funny. Bro technical knowledge is something that makes it easier to differentiate ph... moreuLOL!
Huawei Honor 6 has JDI 5.0 inch FHD Incell screen, pixel density of up to 445 PPI, how dare you compare it with Moto G. 294ppi?
Are you dreaming?
Honor 6 is 7.5mm thin with a massive battery of 3100mAh.
Honor 6 is future proof with LTE-A CAT6 300mbps DL.
It has 13MP Sony fourth generation BSI stack type camera at the back equipped with dual LED flash and 5MP front camera.
3GB RAM, 16GB ROM supporting microSD up to 64 GB Android 4.4.2 upgradable.
Are you really technically knowledgeable or just discriminating phones made in China?
Tcool, 19 Oct 2014If you are talking of smaller screen, then Huawei Honor 6 is better than your Moto X!Yeah sure, a Chinese interface without any surety of android updates, No gorilla glass, cheap mali GPU which is used in companies like lava, karbonn, micromax. If you are looking that way then xiomi mi3 will be a better option for you because there is not much of difference except for RAM but at least you get a gorilla glass and proper branded processor and GPU which performs well in all benchmark tests. And do compare the benchmarks of moto x with any of these devices then you'll get to know what is fluidity of performance. Check for speed tests of all these devices, perhaps you'll get to know what is bloatware and what is stock version of android.
