Motorola Moto X (2014) review: Motorola's new Moto X far surpasses the original

 

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...

The 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 you can customize yourself.

Motorola Announces the New Moto X: Initial Impressions and Hands On

 

Motorola has been through a lot, to say the least. It was only a few years ago that Motorola had become an OEM struggling to stay afloat, as it was effectively an ODM for network operators in the US. We saw phone after phone pushed out with no real...

While the original Moto X introduced Touchless Controls, the new Moto X takes things further. Now named Moto Voice, the new Moto X now allows for any five syllable phrase to be used. In addition, it’s possible for third party apps to plug into Moto...

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...
