I dont know why the display looks cheap even though its more than 1080p !
Why is this phone QHD when FHD would have given a ppi of 400+?? There isn't a single benefit of going QHD on a 5.2" phone. Tablets yes, but why on a phone??
aww m so happy to see a really high end phone with "NO" on-screen buttons.a must buy.
Specs sound amazing, phone be a great performer. However, I don't like the looks of the phone...could just be a bad picture though
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2014That is rather simplistic.Yes, one of the main advantages of 64 bit is the ability to use more... moreI agree completely with what you said, and I think you made a great, easy to understand analogy.
That being said, you forgot one very important fact.
Apps written in 64bit require more RAM than the 32bit counterparts. When you have a device with just 1GB RAM, the benefits of 64bit architecture are pretty much nullified when you quickly run out of RAM.
This is why when it comes to desktop OS (Windows, Linux) the 64bit version is recommended for systems with 4 or more GB ram.
Still going to 64bit is a good move for any OS, but Apple made a mistake with this generation of iPhones by sticking with 1GB RAM. Only when they will increase it in the next generation, will people really see the potential.
Please Motorola, sell these kind of devices in the European market too. We are so unlucky with those 2200 mah battery equipped phones.
This is what Nexus 6 should have been in terms of size. And with no capacitive buttons would be perfect
no card slot horrible :( Everything you make with the camera today is HD and that takes Place....do it again and make right..
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2014The capacitive back/home/recent buttons kinda look old. My Motorola RAZR HD from 2-3 years ago... moreOn screen button do one thing and one thing only, steal screen real estate. The frame is there anyway, why not use it for what it's worth?
Side bezels could be slimmer though, top and bottom is simialr to other recent phones in size.
Please bring this globally!
Most people do not want 6 inchers (though I do), they want this size, and a great battery and camera to go with it it.
Global launch Moto, or #Fail as usual.
This phone looks like the red version in previously leaked photos. The previously leaked black phone had a different and much classier looking back. There must be multiple versions coming to Verizon. By the way, if this phone ends up using LCD instead of AMOLED, it's going to be a dealbreaker for me.
And no micro-sd for additional storage capability ... Please Moto, wake up
Impact, 23 Oct 201432 bit is all you need unless you have like 4gb of RAM, otherwise it's worthless. That is rather simplistic.Yes, one of the main advantages of 64 bit is the ability to use more than 4GB RAM>
While maximum benefits are gained with 4GB RAM, there are other gains.
64 bit helps in computationally intensive tasks. Easiest example I read is to imagine a librarian A with 32 assistants, and another B with 64. They can only get one book at a time.
A person needing 32 books, would get it the same time, in both libraries - 1 trip
A person needing 65 books would get it faster with B: 3 trips for A (one exta trip for the last book), 2 trips for B (only a third faster)
A person needing 256 books: 8 trips for A, and only 4 trips for B.
So while it does not translate into x2 or x3 times speeds, there are still advantages to be had, especially if the apps are computationally intensive, and optimised for the OS.
This is why Apple made the move early, even tho devices are not with 4GB RAM, and recently they have now required developers to write in 64bit, so when they finally make it compulsory, ENTIRE GENERATIONS of devices will remain compatible and be upgradable.
This is simply not possible on Android, and a shift to 64 bit will be much harder, and messier.
Doesn't look as nice as the Nexus 6 considering they're both Motorola.
32 bit is all you need unless you have like 4gb of RAM, otherwise it's worthless.

Geese, 23 Oct 2014You still need removable battery when it has 3900mh inside it?Yes, because batteries lose juice after awhile.
