Frankenphone: What do you make of those Moto X customization options?
Remember the Frankenstein story? The guy in the lab that created a monster out of bits and pieces? Well, with the Moto X you are that crazy scientist, as you can experiment endlessly with the way your phone looks and feels at Motomaker, as in the walkthrough video below. Now for AT&T, "later in the year" for other carriers, says Moto.

Choose from 18 back colors, custom boot messages, 2 storage sizes, 7 accent colors, 16 unique wallpapers, engraving for the back cover, 2 front colors, the color of your charger and match the SOL REPUBLIC headphones color with your Moto X - this whirlwind of options is what Google and Motorola came up with to stand out from the Android crowd.

The handset will also come with an entourage of over 300 accessories stamped M4DE, indicating allegiance to the new Motorola portfolio. Too much? Not enough? Checkmark your opinion, and sound off in the comments below.

I'm not really sure if this is innovation.
More like a refreshed approach to the cell phone world.

Innovation would have been true under the hood customizing options, not colors.

To be able to choose between processors, ram option, ips lcs or amoled screen...

I really don't care very much for colors or wallpapers since I make my own

Seems like a decent phone. We'll have to see the benchmarks of the phone to really judge if its a midranger or a top of the line phone. I think the only thing really midrange is the 720p screen.

First Moto phone that interests me. Love the approach Google is taking with this, people do the same thing with computers, phones only make sense that you can personalize them prior to being put together.

lol, Really? I managed to do most of this when I first bought my SGS3, Bought a white S3 16GB, bought a black Mercury Screen protector and a Red back cover replacement and could probably use a marker or pen to write my name on the back too if I wanted, add another 16GB Memory card for a total of 32GB if I wanted.

The best innovation thus far when it comes to smartphone. Everyone had to wait a year or two to get a new color from htc etc. Samsung puts the uglier colors in their devices.
