I actually wanted to get the X Style, but I decided to stay away from it (cuz of bad battery) and to wait for the 4th Gen for better battery, smaller size and fingerprint reader.
By the way, this is only a prototype, one of many. So I hope that the final design looks better and the speakers move TO THE FRONT.
I would like to see the latest chipset with the required features and a better camera than the previous Moto X's please I have Moto X 2014 and I wish I had a better camera because prior to this I had a Moto G 2014 which had a better camera performance in low light. :( ! The cameras should be better or like the nexus 5x's camera with ois or eis. And the dual speakers are a must which should also include an unbreakable AMOLED screen! Then no one can stop Moto X 2016 from being the best flagship Rivalling s7 other flagships!
It looks VERY promising, especially the camera, judging by the size of its protruding compartment. I hope it isn't there just due to poor internal design, but because of camera units required size, a'la pureview.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2015actually the first iphone used a aluminium body, so did 5, 5s, 6, 6 plus, 6s and 6s plusBut was it unibody though, and did it have the distinct antenna bands in the back like the M7 did, which Apple blatantly copied later.
Apple , SONY,Motorola, BlackBerry are ones who have had unique designs which most of other manufacturers tend to follow.image posted here is just back side and it dsnt look anywhere like Apple.
Look at moto line up - Turbo, X ,G all have an independent identity in terms of design.
People buy it coz they do not look like apple. And those who want apple and cannot afford they opt for lookalikes like A9 and all

Anonymous, 16 Dec 2015What with all the company copying iphone 6 design. Everyone is going metal now? That prototype... moreYou said it yourself it's a prototype so of course it's not a finished product that's ready for sale yet. And iPhone users complained about Android phones being cheap and plasticky and now that a lot of them are incorporating metal into their handsets you still complain. And FYI the first metal unibody smartphone was the M7 I believe, afterward Apple released their version.
appleisdabest, 16 Dec 2015oh no, one more to copy apple designs and cry when they sued. i hope apple lawyers are read... moreI am gonna sue you because you look like a human and I am human. You have to change yourself.. swap ear or nose or something.
MY GOD! HOW? how this is similar to iPhone design. Ducking How? because this phone has an antenna? because its made from metal? because of what? How can the company make a rectangle brick in different possible ways? Still doesn't look like iPhone. Companies were using iPhone 6 curvy design since long time, then after iPhone 6 launched everything is now similar to iPhone. In fact, companies have tried so many design and 'we' (open minded tech enthusiast) can point out any design aspect of iPhone from older designs.
Maddie Z, 16 Dec 2015You do not know Motorola, Motorola has always been its own innovation and research and development.motorola owns very very large pattern technologies
Must every phone be a metal unibody these days? I like metal phones, but Motorola had a really nice design with the 2nd and 3rd Gen Moto X. This seems like a step backwards to me.
If this is for real, it also means the end of Moto Maker, I guess.
And if that really is the speaker grill on the back (which it hardly seems like it could be anything else--definitely not a microphone, no one would put a microphone there) then that is a huge regression. The front facing stereo speakers are one of the hallmark features of the Moto X. And moving it to the back is the worst alternative (the bottom is second best). I cannot understand shifting from having the best possible speaker setup on a phone to the worst.
