Personally i would prefer they use the original Moto X (2013) as reference. The X and G are very similar, but the X had a textured hard polycarbonate that's amazing to the touch and very grippy. The G's polycarbonate was also hard, but not textured and thus not as sexy.
Regardless, i am glad to see the awesome ergonomics of the X once again, though i really wish it was a high-midranger instead of a low-midranger the MT SoC implies.
teaspade, 30 Aug 2016Why mtk??? Why not qualcomn?? Who'll buy their Moto G, Moto Z and Moto E series? Its better that they have given an option for Mediatek users. Majority of people dont even care about the processor.
aatif khan, 30 Aug 2016Great to see old design back. But Snapdragon chipset shall be a better choice than mediatek.If performace is major point yes - but MediaTek have less security problems.
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2016So it's still only Sony putting competitive specs into a smaller package - Moto are sticking w... moreSony is also putting only 720p and charging you 2-3x for it.
First time I have seen 1080p on a "4.6 display with fingerprint scanner to boot.
this lenovo has finally destroyed moto with mtk, now moto is also chinese
aatif khan, 30 Aug 2016Great to see old design back. But Snapdragon chipset shall be a better choice than mediatek.Not really that good, since qualcom wont provide gpu driver for SD800 & 801, cause Nougat cancellation to xperia z3. I was fans to SD but not anymore
Rear mounted fingerprint scanner is not really comfortable, the best position is the front (if home button is physical) or else integrated in the side power button (as Sony does). This way, you dont need to pick up your phone in order to unlock it.
So it's still only Sony putting competitive specs into a smaller package - Moto are sticking with the old saw that if you don't want a big phone you should be happy with weak specs.
Great to see old design back.
But Snapdragon chipset shall be a better choice than mediatek.
This will be perfect second phone at least for me if they use for snapdragon!!!! 😭😭😭
Ohhh older moto design ( legacy ) with dimple as sensor ( thanks for listening moto nova ) and in a 4.6 compact factor ( like a mobile phone ) loving it already
I always thought that the M Logo at the back would be the perfect place to place the fingerprint scanner, Idk why Moto (Lenovo) chose to put the fingerprint scanner in the front
