More claims about Google's Motorola X phone: huge battery, Sony camera sensor and Kevlar

0. phoneArena 01 Feb 2013, 02:56 posted on

The phone is allegedly planned to have MAXX-like battery, the obligatory quad-core processor, screen size in the 4.8" area, and, thankfully, a microSD card slot, although storage is rumored to go all the way to a 128 GB version...

Forgot to ask him about the edge to edge display. I don't think he'll necessarily know what processor is being used, but I'll ask next time. All I and he know is that it's a quad core.

I guess that I just dont understand people these days. With all of these phone manufactuers in a race with each other to see who can make the biggest phone-tablet that can make calls, I just dont understand why some one would want to have a phone the size of a tablet. You cant fit it in to your pocket after it gets so big. I thank that a phone with a HD (720p-1080p) screen in the size of about 4.5 inches would be just about perfect. I guess that that is just my opinion though.

Nonsense, I have a DNA and it's a full 5" and it fits in my pockets easily without a hitch. My girlfriend has the SGS3 and that is 4.8" and she has no problems using it, in fact I see lots of women with SGS3's and they couldn't more happier. My mom has the Galaxy Nexus 4.65" screen and that phone is rather large for it's screen size almost the same footprint as the SGS3. No one has a tablet at 5", that's just too damn small to even make sense.
5" is probably the best size for 1080p and viewing pleasure in a super smart phone any bigger and you'll be a Note Pad.
Side note, I can actually put a Galaxy Note 2 in my pocket. I just don't like the size of it next to my head when answering a call, but it is a cool piece of kit.

I guess in your haste to criticize someone you did not see the last line of my comment that stated "I guess that that is just my opinion though". Please before commenting on someones comment please read the whole comment that was made. TY

I'm pretty sure he's aware that whatever you post on this website is your own opinion. What, so if he sees "I guess that that is just my opinion though" he's suddenly going to change his mind?

Also, in your haste to defend yourself, did you only read the first word "nonsense"? Because from what I can tell that's the only part of his comment that can be construed as critical. Everything else he writes documents his personal observations, and are hardly pointed criticisms of your opinion.

I kinda agree with him tho that phones are getting too big. I tried a GS3...and that might be the absolute max size I could deal with. Its a tad bit longer and wider than my RAZR. My Maxx HD is almost the exact same size as my RAZR.

And Archos had a 5" tablet a few years ago. The Dell Streak....the 5" phone in 2010 that came before the Note.....some sites called it a phone, some a tablet.

great features but the point is that Motorola is not and can't be successful outside US. here in middle east everyone prefers to buy Sammy, Nokia and Sony instead of Motorola even if it features best specs. i think this is true in other parts of the world as well. this is one main problem that google is going to face.

While I'm certain that Motorola could leverage some market share gain worldwide if they put out the right devices and said devices work well, I would point out that Motorola only needs to sell enough devices to be profitable for Google.

At what problem?

Are you saying that new phones shouldn't have better specs than old phones?

Love what I'm hearing about this phone! Could be my next phone.

-Stock Android...5.0?
-Quad Core
-Sony Camera
-3000+ battery
-Quality materials
-SD Card slot
-Big screen, but not too big

I guessing it will have HDMI, Gorilla Glass, and nano coating on inside like my Maxx.

NFC would be nice feature too!

There is actually no indication so far that this phone will be a Verizon exclusive. I mean, I didn't ask my source, but all other information points to the phone having an unlocked version at least.

The VZW rumors if true will immediately kill any chances of this phone being "Perfect, Great, Astounding" or any other adjectives above plain good. Even if stock I see bloatware, & it taking 6+ months after Moto/Google update the software for VZW to release it due to their "testing." This better have an unlocked version!!!

I don't see how it could be exclusive to Verizon and have all this input from Google. Google isn't with that lock down carrier business, they are all about getting their product into many hands as possible, so I think that might be mainly rumor. Besides I see Google taking control of Moto and making the same phones available across the board for carriers, reducing the R&D and strain on supply with too many variations of the same phone. This could be the phone to change all that.

Screen resolution, type and what quad core processor in X phone are big questions for me. Moto was never ahead of others on screen and processor spec. They need to make it at least on par with M7, Xperia Z on screen, processor.
