Motorola Moto X gets official, comes in a host of colors

0. phoneArena posted on 01 Aug 2013, 14:01

Google and Motorola have finally made the Moto X official, and what do you know - it's a near stock Android experience smartphone with a bunch of unique twists. First of all, it's worth noting that the Motorola Moto X is supposed to be a reflection of a new Motorola (one owned by Google, obviously), which aims to strike a perfect balance between Moto's manufacturing expertise and Google's world-changing software...

This sounds like a nice mid ranger that will take care of most of your needs
But i though they are gonna play on the price and make it tempting....though i dont know the retail price yet but the contract price doesnt sound tempting
Mayb the outcome of expensive manufacturing in US
Guess the 'all american' sales pitch will be vital for them

This is like the Apple product of Android. Overpriced, underperforming.

Overpriced, maybe. Under powered, definitely not. Dual core Krait at 1.7 GHz and Adreno 320 will run Android (and all of it's games) effortlessly, especially with the 2 extra cores for language processing and contextual computing taking a little bit of work off of the main application CPU.

and it 'almost' share the same specs with Nokia Lumia 920 (Dual Core Krait at 1.2Ghz, Adreno 225 GPU, the colors not to mention that Moto X' pixel density is underwhelming than that of Nokia's flagship) but why the heck people are worshipping this phone? Don't start with because Nokia Lumia 920 is a Windows Phone..

Because Nokia essentially made the same phone 3 times over the course of a year and treated it like a flagship, the 920, 925, 1020; the 1020 being the most different just because of the camera. The Moto X, though not entirely up to date, is at least still a good update from the Razr HD of last year with the Adreno 320, full RGB display, more RAM, and guaranteed updates being a Google device. Also, the Moto X has something going for it that no modern smartphone has, and that's detailed hardware customization.

The Moto X looks like a beefed up Nexus 4... But more expensive and its also on verizon. personally I would just wait for the HTC One on Verizon, or if your on GSM just get the new Nexus that comes out in november...

Meh...I just don't see why this was so hyped up, it's a decent mid end phone, it will be quickly forgotten, IMO.

Why didn't they just announce this with the other Droids? If this doesn't have a low off contract price, I don't see this having many sales, made in the US or not.

Wow, all colors are so pleasing to eyes, I just loved it. Blue one for me.

Good to see more color options. If I had to have one (and right now, it's one of few androids I'd reluctantly accept) it'd be the olive green color.
