Hey people, looks like Motorola have really delivered on their promise to "bring it" in the Moto X Style camera. It is now ranked 3rd on DXO Mobile camera rankings, only behind the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy Note 4 and ahead of the iPhone 6/+ and the Sony Xperia Z3+. With a 64 bit Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB base storage expandable via microSD , a 515ppi QHD display, a 3000mAh battery, and LTE that works on any carrier for $399 unlocked, I say this is a smoking hot deal!!! WOW!!!

DXO mobile camera rankings are taking drugs the S6 ans note 4 take less good picture than the G4 in most cases. But anyway its help to get lots of goodie from some OEM in choosing who is the best ;)

Wow! They dropped the ball big time. 5.7 inch LCD and 11mm thick? They should have kept it at 5.2 or smaller. I guess we have to see how the Nexus 5 turns out. Samsung really nailed it this year with the GS6 and GS6 edge pretty much being the same size as an iphone 6 but with a much better 5.1 AMOLED display. And if the Note 5 turns out to me the same size as the G4 but thinner like the rumors suggest. Game over for this and the one plus 2.

I wonder if the 808 is a customized version or not.

Moto X (2nd generation) 2014 looks better than this one.

I'm not impressed. A good device though. I miss sexy phones from Motorola like the v3 razr and v series back in 2000's.

My guess as to why Motorola went to LCD is that AMOLED is a good choice for conserving battery, except for when the color white is seen on the screen. Then the battery life gets affected dramatically, and most apps, like the texting screen, internet browser, forums, etc have white backgrounds with black text. So they may want to try and extend the battery life with the LCD display.
