AT&T has confirmed that the Moto X will cost $575 without a contract, and that's for the 16 GB version. The 32 GB one will run you $629, or in line with all current flagship phones, just like the $200 contract price for the basic Moto X jibes with what we are used to pay for the latest and greatest...

Nope.

1. He is giving his own opinion. No need to be rude about it.

2. Because people have proven time and again that OS matters A LOT ! Doesn't matter if it is a great hardware but the fact is people love freedom ! It is thats why android has 80% of the market and Windows has 3%. It is thats why people loved Symbian. It is thats why Windows is so successful in PCs and not Mac.

I have used all 3 sorry but WP8 is worse than IOS. I hate that OS so much i refuse to ever own a WP8 device, android gingerbread had more functionality than that piece of crap WP8.

I still don't get why Motorola would give any kind of exclusivity to a carrier for this phone. I know it's only temporary, but one would think they would allow all carriers to have access to the various color options so as to sell the most number of phones.

this phone was supposed to be all about price, even if "designed in the US" this should have a competitive price, 500+ off contract its not it, I wold recommend N4 over this and everyone know my PUBLIC HATE on LG smartphones

Reviews will give the final verdict, but its not looking good in my eyes, in my opinion this prone should start 99 on contract

They aren't competing in terms of specks, experience can be subjective, camera has yet to prove itself (will see how it compares latter on) and they expect people to cough up money for it? The galaxy s4 Google play edition costs a few more bucks has nearly the same experience and a proven camera

My issue was not the specks, I was expecting a competitive device, we knew it was going to be dual core and everything but our hope was a decent price $350-400 would have been great but its $175 too much I wanted to see a device I could say I would buy it and the new nexus 7 for the price of an unlocked phone :<

...Wonder why it took 1 day to announce the OFF-Contract price? Maybe they suspected that it was gonna KILL that big launch party in New York???? Mid-Range specs for TOP-OF-THE-LINE price = RIPP-OFF!!!!!

I still have my Galaxy Nexus that I bought right when it came out for Verizon in December of 2011. It still runs very well and smooth with a dual core processor. It runs as good as my friend's S4 does and I don't have to deal with the Samsung Skin (not a fan personally). I don't get the hate against the X because it lacks a quad core processor when a dual core can run 4.2.2 just fine.

Moro X is a lot of alliby, they want you to ride in the skin of peanut!
Actually, the real reason why it is expensive b'coz the labor here in America is standard.
If they make a high end phone it will cost you almost $1,000.

Typically the off-contract price IS the full manufacturer price. It's like MSRP for any other product. Do you think Motorola is going to offer the phone for less AND let you customize the case?

This was really going to be my next phone because of the rumors saying that it was going to be offered at a very low price ($200-$300). I've always liked Motorola devices, but due to the price I may just go ahead and get the Nexus 4, or even the GE of the HTC One for that matter. I really like the almost-stocked UI of the Moto X, but price is just a letdown.

that's the price you pay for a device that is CUSTOMIZABLE, MADE IN THE USA, with CLEARPIXEL camera technology, and VERY PRACTICAL features (notifications that work only a portion of the display, no touch interaction with the device, etc.)

i'm not sure if it's worth it. if you are a patriotic American, buy it. it's more expensive than other flagships considering the inferior specs. the lower specs make it not so future-proof.

still, it appears Google has no intention of competing against other OEMs. it only wants to warn OEMs that if they don't behave, Google has a handset-manufacturing arm that can cannibalize all of them.

With all the comments about getting a S4 or HTC one. Size alone will discount those two versus the moto X. The moto X size should appeal more to those looking at the mini versions of the two mentioned phones both or which are more or less inferior to the moto X.

To me anything over 65mm wide is too much. Of course this is just me. Makes the likes of the htc one/S4 etc just simply too wide and therefore not even an option.

Still I would have expected the price to be more like $400. Hopefully google will launch it around $400 on the play store after all the hype has gone.

If I can get it 400 on Google play then I'm into it, also good point about the size, I'm still pissed at the price point, wanted something more competitive in that aspect

Moto what a joke you are. Everyone just wait for the next nexus device it will be better and cheaper! Who the hell would choose this over a gs4 or even the htc one for that price and their plans is to release a cheap version later on in the year whats it going to have lower specs than it already has?
