Motorola Moto X (2014) review

 

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)

 

Paying $70 to $100 or more a month for smartphone service is the norm if you're signed up with one of the Big Four U.S. carriers. But it doesn't have to be that way. Republic Wireless is offering unlimited 4G LTE, voice and text for $40 a month with...

Motorola Moto X (Republic Wireless) Review

 

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

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.

Motorola's features don't require you to create a new account like Samsung does, and Motorola doesn't try to duplicate Google's media stores like Samsung is. There's none of that tension between Samsung and Google that you find on the S 4.
