Motorola Moto X (2014) review: Have it your way

 

The new Moto X arrived exactly a year after its predecessor brought us customizable looks, wrapped in a sleek body, proudly wearing the "Made in USA" label. The new flagship of the company is likely one of the last Motorola products developed during...

Quad-band GSM; HSDPA/LTE connectivity ; 5.2" AMOLED display, 1920 x 1080 pixels, 424ppi; Corning Gorilla Glass 3 ; Android 4.4.4 KitKat with stock UI (upgradable to Android L) ; Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8974AC chipset with quad-core 2.5GHz Krait 400...

No stereo speakers (the cheaper Moto G has them) ; Lack of memory expansion slot ; No version with 64GB of memory at launch ; Rather low battery capacity

This year's Moto X addresses many of the hardware shortcoming its predecessor had and brings unparalleled fit and finish to its price range. The newcomer is easily among the nicest Android flagships to hold and operate. Its tactility and overall...

Moto X review (2014): from also-ran to amazing in one year

 

The 2014 Moto X is a huge step forward from last year's model, and it's finally equipped to compete with a sea of strong competitors. With an impressive (not to mention customizable) design and some thoughtful software features, this is the flagship...

Runs near-stock Android ; Motorola's additional features are smart and useful ; Snappy performance ; Thoughtful, comfortable design ; Lots of customization options

Cameras are average at best and frustrating at worst ; Unremarkable battery life ; Some carrier bloatware

Motorola's plan with last year's flagship seemed pretty clear: It set it to build a smarter kind of smartphone. The company mostly succeeded, but the formula just didn't make sense for people who wanted the most oomph for their buck. One year later and...

Motorola Moto X (2014, Verizon Wireless)

 

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. Low entry price.

Inconsistent camera performance. Carrier bloatware. No memory card slot. Battery isn't removable.

Software and Conclusions The near-stock Android 4.4 software and Moto Voice, Display, Assist, and Actions features all remain the same between every Moto X model and the Droid Turbo. Of course, being a Verizon phone, bloatware like VZ Navigator,...

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.

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

 

Just over a year ago, Motorola introduced its new brand and identity and launched the Moto X, a different kind of smartphone than anything before it. It could be customized differently for each and...

The New Motorola Moto X (2nd Gen) Review

 

While I talked about Motorola's issues in the launch article for the new Moto X, it's well worth repeating. Motorola has been through a lot these past few years. Once the iconic symbol of Android with their Droid smartphones, Motorola had lost its way....

That’s ultimately a concerning position for Motorola though, as this means that they’re directly competing with the Nexus line of devices. While this wasn’t really true for the previous Moto X by virtue of its compact size, Motorola’s choice to join in...

Motorola Moto X (2014) Smartphone Review

 

Always an open ear. Motorola treats its flagship to an upgrade while maintaining the tried virtues. Speech control has been advanced even further. Besides that, a strong Snapdragon 801 and a 13 MP camera have been installed. The smartphone can be...

Swift SoC, Latest Android, Good ergonomics, Very good phone sound, Always-on speech control, Can be personalized, Gesture control, Good screen, Wide frequency coverage, Stable performance even during load

Little available storage, Non-expandable storage, Few accessories included, Uneven gaps, Screen could be brighter, Barely any accessories, No LTE Cat. 6

Motorola's second-generation Moto X is a successful and consistent development of its precursor. The upscale configuration clearly places it in the premium range, although it lacks technical superlatives. The smartphone more convinces with its flexible...
