Want to have a say in what custom design comes next to the Moto X? See how inside

The number of possible outcomes atwhich you can arrive thanks to the highly customizable Moto X istruly mind boggling. But despite the massivehype that preceded the launch of Motorola'sarguable mid-ranger (specs wise, at least),the device's rather steep price point has raised concerns over howwell it will sell. It only makes sense then, that the customizationfacet is milked and entertained as much as possible, for Motorola mayfind it hard to move enough handsets.



With the above inmind, we're still pleasantly surprised with Motorola and the contestit has been hosting for the last week or so over at its Facebookpage. Letting you take the rains for a change, the US manufacturer ishosting a sort of a competition between 12 currently unavailablecustom skins for the Moto X. Our guess is that Motorola will behosting a new round every now and then, letting us feel a part forthe process.



We already voted,and if you find yourself similarly motivated then make sure to have alook at the contestants below and head straight to source to castyour vote.

I like the Pi one the most, but I voted for orange because it should have been there from the beginning.

Hopefully all of them will end up in Motomaker at some point. Since customization is the main selling point of this thing they should include as many options as possible. They also better add aluminum at some point.

Drop the phone to $50, serious. Then watch 'em sell.

I'd pay $99 for one. The customization aspect would make it worth a little extra.

I am all for the customization, but I think having people vote on the next set of available cases is aggravating and pointless with the "One and Done" set up they have in place. If this device supported the ability to change cases and buttons at a local store or at home, this would be genius... but as it stands their customization solution will be just as frustrating as HTC/Samsung slowly releasing various colors as the device ages.

The only customization I love to have at any cost is that 3500mAh battery...

I never get this argument about prices of phones, they all have usually the same street value price around $600 upon release. Why are you complaining about it's on contract price at all? If you don't see the value fine don't buy it, else can the crap and move on. This is beyond stupid, products are only worth what we are willing to pay for them even if they may not cost as much as the sum of it's parts (Moto X) or considerably less than the sum of it's parts (any over priced car Ferrari, Porsche, Bentley, etc.). Seeing the price thing pop up is inane it won't change a damn thing at Motorola.
