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...

Moto X (2014) Review

 

The Moto X was my favorite Android smartphone of 2013. A year later, and the landscape's changed. So too must the Moto X. For the second-generation model, which we'll refer to as the Moto X (2014), Motorola decided to improve on the fronts that market...

Moto X (2nd Generation) review: Improved specs and useful extras, but short on storage options

 

The 2014 Moto X is nicely designed and solidly built, has a great 5.2-inch AMOLED screen, performs superbly, and delivers a range of useful Moto 'experiences' on top of an otherwise uncluttered Android OS. Limited internal storage capacity and lack of...

Pleasing design and solid construction ; Excellent 5.2-inch AMOLED display ; Excellent performance ; Useful voice and gesture controls ; Customisation options via Moto Maker

No MicroSD storage expansion ; Maximum of 32GB of internal storage ; Non-removeable battery

Motorola Moto X ( 2nd Generation, Black Resin)

 

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.

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....

The first Moto X was, and still is a great phone. Even if the camera isn’t all that great, the display not all that accurate, and the specs not all that impressive, the ergonomics of it are incredible. Motorola had designed one of the most ergonomic...

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: 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 (2014) Review: Finally, a true Motorola flagship

 

Motorola never quite got the praise it deserved with the original Moto X , the company's decision to step off the specs bandwagon unduly masked by relatively uninspiring design. Now, the 2014 model arrives to rectify that, sharing the same name but...

It’s hard not to be impressed with the new Moto X. Its predecessor built a solid reputation among those “in the know” for its clean Android build and useful features, but its plastic casing and underwhelming display left it overshadowed on store...

Moto X (2014) review: Bigger display, metal frame, and fabulous Motorola experiences make it the best Android

 

Motorola had one of the most underrated smartphones of 2013. The successor brings high-end design and specs along with even more Moto experiences.

I understand that updates are natural for device evolution, but still find the original Moto X to have an extremely compelling form factor. I would like to have seen a better camera and improved battery life, but Moto took it a bit further with a...

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

 

I'll be honest with you: When the first Moto X came out last year, some early apprehension soon gave way to unwavering fondness. It wasn't because of the

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

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...
