If that is the mysterious Xphone, they can have it. There is no appeal. Large Bezel up top, buttons at the bottom. That is going backwards not forwards.

I'll take features over hardware. The performance of Android is not so buttery since after 4.1.1 and just goes to prove that no matter how much hardware you have, it won't matter if the OS is poorly written. Perhaps this means that this iteration of Android (4.3) that may or may not be on the device will run very smooth even on inferior hardware. That would be fantastic for me.

Waiting for this to come out and then decide between it and the S4. The ability to remove and change the battery is such a useful feature for someone like me, who rarely has an access to a charging point and carries 2 batteries around. In regards to a user below, I have never had a sealed phone feel more sturdy than one with a removable cover... most likely a placebo effect knowing that it isn't sealed. Both feel the same. What matters is the material the phone is constructed from, and the now ancient Nokia N91 can attest to this.

It doesn't have a removable battery or memory card.

I was wondering, if you are testing the XFON what size battery is in it?

Looks and sounds like a low budget s4. It better be cheap if those are the actual stats or no one is going to buy it.

So many will always disagree... I'd like to say, if these are infact some what accurate specs, I feel that Motorola listened to a great deal of feedback about their previous lines of Droid Razr phones. Not all of us want a "Phablet" or a small laptop to carry around as a phone (there are Samsung Note's for those who would prefer something of the like,) or if you just want the larger scren, the Samsung G4 seems pretty nice. However, for those of us wanting a "phone" with common top line functionality, removable battery, and like most users (guessing 95% of us,) one that can handle a random 3-4ft. drop here and there from normal use. (Have yet to meet the person who never dropped there phone.) This would be a grat phone. I prefer removable battery due to the fact that a normal days use (battery life) is not 6-8hrs for me. I rise at 6a.m. and sleep at 11p.m. Removable batteries prevents long delays in downtime, and unecessary secondary devices to charge our phones. Switch battery and keep moving. Again, not for everyone, but what I'm looking for would be what I see here, Great job Motorola if this is the new phone! For others, simply go to a different brand ;-)

... (forgive the spelling errors, was written quickly,) also, yes a micro-SD card is a must, up to 32Gb would be more than adequate with a built-in 16Gb. I have a laptop, and if I want a Reader for books, there are plenty available on the markets. Also, forgot to add, incase many missed; the was an issue with some built-in batteries.... It is quite possible that in several devices the heat from charging would expand the battery in the device and cause cracked Lcd's. While this was not proven as of yet, it is a possibility. I can think of many reasons several users prefer removable batteries, and "well-built" phones. Just wanted to add m ten cents without judging others and give a valid perspective. -Thanks
