Motorola Moto X review: A brilliant Android experience under Rs 25,000

 

Motorola is back in the Indian market and what a comeback it has been. First the Moto G and now the Moto X – Motorola has shaken up two key segments with just two smartphones. The Moto G changed the mainstream smartphone landscape and proved that we...

At Rs 23,999, Motorola is easily offering the best Android experience outside the Nexus clan and we feel this is the phone to get under Rs 25,000. For this price, you’re getting features that are not available even in the most expensive Android phone...

Motorola Moto X

 

Personally, it's been a long time since I've been excited about a phone. I'm not sure if it's because I'm a sucker for stock Android, or because I crave something aesthetically unique, but the last time I remember something really piqued my interest...

AT&T's Motorola Moto X has a sharp 1080p screen, a swift quad-core processor, nifty software and gesture features, and customizable design options that'll fit anyone's style.

A minimalist camera, combined with no expandable memory, are the handset's only drawbacks.

The Motorola Moto X hits all the right notes, delivering stock Android inside a powerful high-end handset that users can customize themselves.

With the exception of a mediocre camera, this may be the best Android phone you can buy.

Lightning fast performance ; Smart software that doesn't deviate from stock Android

Lackluster camera performance

The new Moto X fixes nearly everything wrong with last year's model. It's bigger (but not too big), faster, smarter, and better-built. This is one of the best Android phones you can buy.

Motorola Moto X (2014) review

 

The 2014 Moto X is a high-end smartphone with a customizable design. It may look good, but how does it compare with other flagship smartphones?

Motorola wowed us with the first Moto X, but the second generation is even better. The improved screen, high-end processor, and endlessly customizable design make the 2014 Moto X a true flagship smartphone. The nearly pure Android experience is...

Motorola Moto X (2014, AT&T)

 

The second-generation Motorola Moto X smartphone is a welcome return to form, thanks to its excellent performance and smooth, unadulterated Android 4.4 interface.

Vastly improved display and processor over its predecessor. Beautiful design. Wide variety of hardware customizations available. Solid voice command implementation. Stellar call quality. Clean, near-stock Android 4.4 UI. Will be upgradable immediately...

Inconsistent camera performance. Tons of carrier bloatware. No memory card slot. Battery isn't removable

The market has spoken. And by and large, the masses don't care about stock Android. That doesn't mean there are no fans. Many crave unadulterated Android, and are often forced to pay extra up front to get an unlocked phone—albeit with more flexibility...

Motorola Moto X (Republic Wireless)

 

The Moto X for Republic Wireless combines a fast and intelligent Android phone with cheap monthly data, making it a steal.

Excellent value; Touchless voice control; Fast performance; Vibrant display

Lacks Moto Maker customization; Limited LTE coverage; Wi-Fi call quality less than stellar

When Republic Wireless first debuted its service, it was a less-than-satisfactory experience. Not only could you not easily transition from Wi-Fi to a cellular network, but the Motorola Defy phone offered by the provider was ancient. The new Moto X...

Motorola Moto X (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Moto X adds some useful, unique tricks to a fast Android smartphone that's comfortable to hold in one hand.

Excellent size for one-handed use. Fast. Good voice activation. Easy to launch camera. You can text from your PC

Limited storage. Very limited camera settings

X very well might mark the spot. Motorola's Moto X ($199.99) pays an unusual level of attention to some core activities most people do with their mobile phones: quickly taking pictures, searching the Internet, texting, and most of all just holding it....

Motorola Moto X (Republic Wireless)

 

With the Motorola Moto X—and significant improvements in network performance—Republic becomes a legitimate alternative to traditional wireless carriers.

Unbeatable plan prices. Same great Moto X performance and features as on major carriers. Seamless Wi-Fi and cellular handoff

Call quality could be improved. No Moto Maker customization options

The problem with Republic Wireless has never been its concept—the hybrid cellular/Wi-Fi service and low-cost plans are laudable in theory, but ultimately flawed in practice thanks to sketchy performance and subpar hardware. To its credit, Republic...

Motorola Moto X (T-Mobile)

 

The Motorola Moto X is an excellent Android smartphone, but senseless carrier neglect will make this a tough sell on T-Mobile.

Perfect one-handed size. Fast. Excellent voice controls. HD Voice. No bloatware

Not available in stores or with any deferred payment plans from T-Mobile. Moto Maker not available. Limited storage

T-Mobile's Moto X ($599 for 16GB) is an excellent phone, and I highly recommend it. But it's also suffering from a series of unforced errors by Motorola and T-Mobile with regards to pricing and availability. I really think the Moto X is the world's...

Motorola Moto X (Sprint)

 

The Motorola Moto X's advanced voice controls, quick launch camera and good battery life help this Android phone stand out from the pack.

Compact design for 4.7-inch screen; Bright bold display; Fast overall performance; Touchless voice controls; Long battery life

Lacks 1080p display; Limited camera features; Moto Maker not yet available

It's tempting to write off the Moto X for its midrange specs when compared with heavy-hitters such as the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. Don't. We love having a personal assistant that answers to our voice without touching the phone, as well as the...
