I don't understand why all these reviewers are saying it's impeccably put together when you can see the gap between the front and the back...
I would buy it if it's 4.3" screen size. Till now I'm going for S4 Mini.
Anonymous, 28 Aug 2013Sony Xperia Z is far more better than Moto X,Sony rocks dude!!!What is far better? Because the Moto X User Experience is above any phone.

As a sidenote, hoping your unwatched device is getting all your emails and important calender dates correctly written and sent is asking for trouble anyway.

Motorola Moto X teardown reveled a build cost of $221 putting it in the same range as the Apple iPhone 5, Galaxy S4 and many other flagship Smartphones out there. Despite having a dual-core Krait CPU, the X8 custom SoC costs more than the Exynos 5 Octa chipset found in the Galaxy S4 (GT-I9500 variant).
While Motorola does save a bit on the display (720p vs. 1080p), the overall cost is nullified due to the custom SoC and many other sensors and processors employed by Motorola on the device, giving a final difference of just $16 between the Moto X and the Galaxy S4.
Further more, the assembly of the phone in the USA costs another $12 adding free the customization on Moto Maker the General value is $350 priced by Motorola to AT&T, Verizon, Spring ect but them sell the Moto X sells for $579 without a contract according the cost value which are the same as the GS4, HTC One or iphone 5...

The excellent speaker and call quality along with touchless voice activation make this all possible, unlike all other brands of phones. This, coupled with what is for me a perfect pocketable size and large screen, make this phone, ideal, if expensive. That's why I'm falling for the Moto X.
yOUR are wrong. Remenber Moto X rendering only 720p then S4 is full HD and sametimes the results is near...
What a lot of people don't realize is everyone isn't a tech nerd and could care less about the specs and more about what it can do to improve their lives. We could care less if it has a 1080p screen because we don't play games or sit an watch videos, we use our phone for talking, appointment reminders, alarms, gps, and so on. To me this phone fits and I'm enjoying it.

Indeed for american fans. After all google & motorola is an amerucan company
moto u think you are apple and can get away with equipping a smartphone with a dualcore processor in 2013 ????
lg nexus 4 has better specs ...
the guys at moto should have gone mad !!!
Only americans will fall for this phone. Tell me one thing why I should buy this phone. I will give you several why you shouldn't--
1- 720p display in Q3 of 2013
2- No external memory card expansion
3- Midrange camera
4- X8 is the lowest capable processor you can find in any flagship with last year dual core standard and soon to be obsolete
5- Spying tool with dedicated processor
6- Toy like custonization
After-all its your money who am I to tell you where you shouldn't waste your money.
Thought this was a decent phone based on the media. I picked one up today at the store to take a look and wow was I disappointed. Feels very cheap...like a toy bit cheap toy. No way this should be price in the high end segment... based on build quality alone. Due to an accident that destroyed my optimis g...I had to settle for a atrix HD a few months ago. It as better build quality than the x IMO.
