TitleReviewing the Moto X

Motorola was earlier known as the maker of hardy phones that you desire not break the bank to acquire. It seems like the business really wants to revive that trend together with the 2 smartphones which it made you can purchase.

Appearance with the Phone


You will find a good amount of similarity involving the Moto X and Moto G. To the remainder of the world, the Envio de motos X came first and so the G. However, in India, the Moto G was released first and so the Moto X. The Moto X looks more premium in comparison to the Moto G. Your body is done out a difficult plastic, PET composite, that is light weight and feels rugged.

The handset will come in Royal Blue, Red, Black, Turquoise and White. It includes two finishes- Walnut and Teak. The Moto X is comparatively sleeker and lighter compared to the Moto G. The top face has almost no buttons or branding. When the screen light is off, the edges with the screen that dominate the front side panel can be viewed. Across the screen, a prominent grille that acts as a possible earpiece is provided. The normal sensors were also placed along with a prominent secondary camera.

The top panel with the phone features a 4.7 inch screen. Additionally, it incorporates a strip of glass that goes surrounding the screen that is great for differentiating involving the plastic rear and front panels visually. The curved back panel is crafted in a polycarbonate material making it comfortable to support. The loudspeaker grille, LED flash and primary camera are fitted during the back panel as the Motorola logo is embossed during the centre.

The largest reap the benefits of the Moto X is that is can be kept in your hands and all the buttons and icons is often operated with a thumb. The phone features a nano coating onto it which protects the telephone from light spillages. However, it will be incorrect to term this device as being a waterproof one. The edges have a volume rocker, Nano-SIM slot and power key. To sum up, the telephone is within a class of the own also it feels good to support it.

Software and has

The Moto X uses an out-of-date Qualcomm Snapdragon Pro S4 SoC. However, inspite of the outdated software being employed, it seems to work well enough. The Dual Core CPU has 1.7 GHz along with a quad-core Adreno 320 GPU, which Motorola calls a contextual computing processor as well as a natural language processor. Motorola has termed this combination as the X8 Mobile Computing System.

These dedicated application processors encourage the Moto X to continuously enjoy voice commands and manage notifications in a power saving manner. The Moto X is nice example to prove the proposition more and more cores usually do not spell higher power.

The phone also provides 2GB RAM and 16GB inbuilt storage. Of the 16GB, only 11GB are accessible for use. Unfortunately, Moto X will not support expandable storage, like other Google devices. The limited storage can simply be disappointing for users. In contrast, 50GB of space on bing Drive is going to be made available from Motorola cost free for a couple years. However, for proper utilisation of cloud storage, a very good download limit and fast net connection is required. Hence, the facility might not be much used. The phone has got an AMOLED 4.7 inch display unit with resolutions of 720X1280 pixels with pixel density 316 ppi. For strength, Corning Gorilla Glass has been utilized. The AMOLED screen with the Moto X shows deep blacks and full colours like most of the high-end Samsung Galaxy phones which utilize the AMOLED screens. The colours are really vibrant and reproduced well consistently. The display unit is not really reflective and visibility in the sunshine was quite good. Viewing angles too usually do not cause much problem.

The Moto x is actually a single SIM phone which contains 3G support but no LTE. Options of connectivity include Wi-Fi 802.11a/g/b/n/ac, Bluetooth 4., GPS/AGPS, GPRS/EDGE and 3G (HSPA ). The Moto X, in the event it was originally launched could be customized using colourful rear panels, accents around power and volume buttons and also a personal message etched about the back cover with the phone. However, in India only a few colourful combinations are accessible for customization.

The Moto x runs on the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean although it is usually updated to Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The Moto X features a stock built with the OS and there is not any added user interface skinning. The Moto X has on screen keys for Home, Back and Recents. Due to the Android KitKat being employed, there are numerous alterations in the telephone including a new launcher that makes the interface more minimalistic. The status bar is made transparent and also the navigation key area at the end and top include the most prominent changes a result of the new launcher. The lock screen features a camera button that can directly launch the camera application.

Camera and Battery

The digital camera used on the telephone is very good. The 10MP shooter clicks images at 1.34 micron sized pixels that is quite large when compared to 13MP shooters. More features with the camera application include the auto HDR mode, slow motion video capturing, panorama, burst mode and 4X digital zoom. The burst mode has the ability to shoot 99 pictures at one go. The phone comes with the RGBC feature that makes the camera 75% more responsive to light.

The pictures show up quite satisfactorily in well-lit conditions. However, in low light, the level of pictures drops. The top camera of 2MP strength is nice enough for clicking occasional selfies. Playing video games like Temple Run 2 and Subway Surfers is rather smooth but games which require higher graphics and hardware like Dead Trigger 2 could make the telephone hang.

The battery lifetime of the telephone is rather good. The phone can be utilized extensively for 6 to 7 hours without charging it. Moderate usage will command 8-9 hours.

The Moto X is an effective purchase as it is focused on good software and straightforward usability. However, the price is rather high and you will get other similar phones like Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 for less money.
