WSJ: Motorola Moto X sales disappointing

0. phoneArena posted on 11 Nov 2013, 22:32

With the lower priced Motorola Moto G set to be unveiled on Wednesday, a published report on Monday says that sales of the heavily promoted Motorola Moto X have been disappointing. Strategy Analytics pulled out their abacus and counted 500,000 units sold in the third quarter. That compares with the 10 million Samsung Galaxy S4 handsets that were rung up in the same time period...

Name a phone from 2012 that had any of the new Google Now features, Active Notifications, Motorola Drive Assist and 8 processors in it, and I would be inclined to agree with you...

Other than the 8 processors, everything else you mentioned is SOFTWARE. The phone does mostly have 2012 specs and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, at least not to me. But pricing this phone $50-$100 more than the high end phones just isn't gonna work.

Name the flagship devices from 2012 that had better than or equal to a 1.7 Dual Core?

Better than or equal to a 10.5 Clearpixel Camera?

Better than 2 GB of RAM. There is only one 2013 phone that does that currently(to my knowledge at least) and that's the note 3 and it was recently released.

The problem wit your comparison is the phone was not made in 2012. It is only 3 mo.ths old and already declining sales. Its only sold 500,000 in three months. Way overpriced at 199. Even 100 is too much. My G2 is 100 bucks and it blows away the moto X. Period. The only.thin it even has different is all to do with google now... yay

And your 8 core cpu is a joke. Benchmarks are 2012 at best. Battery life? Not that amazing. My G2 will last twice as long. And its cheaper. 630 bucks for a 32GB moto x. 520 for my 32GB G2. ALL you need is sales as the proof. 500,000 sold in its FIRST 3 months is horrible.

I didn't make the phone, nor the CPU so I dunno how it suddenly became mine.

The Benchmarks beat the S4 in a few tests and quite a few other phones from 2013, so I dunno where your'e getting that from. The phone is only 720p so that give it some edge in this department though because the processors don't have to work as hard to achieve the same output.

However the statistics on the phone are not 2012 because no flagship device from 2012 can meet them. That's the point that I'm making.

I never said it was better faster or the equal to the G2, it shouldn't be because the G2 is LG's newest flagship(besides the Nexus 5) and is newer than the X so it should have better technology in it than the Moto X or the Verizon Droid devices.

I never said the phone wasn't overpriced at launch, because it most definitely was.

My only point is that the phone does not have "last years" technology and or specs in it, or under perform as people are continuously stating.

Many go to Republic Wireless to get no contract, unlimited talk, text and data for $25 a month or unlimited talk and text for $10 a month. They have the MotoX for $299 and the MotoG for $149. I dropped Verizon for Republic over a year ago and now save over $100 a month. I recommend them from personal experience. Use this link to research and get $20 off SORRY NEED 30 POSTS.
