Motorola Moto X (2014, AT&T)
1 week ago
Conclusion: 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.
Pros: 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. Will be upgradable immediately to Android L once available. Low entry price.
Cons: Inconsistent camera performance. Tons of carrier bloatware. No memory card slot. Battery isn't removable.
Moto X review (2014): from also-ran to amazing in one year
2 weeks ago
Conclusion: 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 phone that Motorola should have made in the first place.
Pros: Runs near-stock Android, Motorola's additional features are smart and useful, Snappy performance, Thoughtful, comfortable design, Lots of customization options
Cons: Cameras are average at best and frustrating at worst, Unremarkable battery life compared to rivals, Some carrier bloatware
Summary: There are a few things I wish Motorola did differently. But after hundreds of hours of testing, I think there is no better general Android phone out there. Active Notifications would be enough to get me in the door, but the size, shape, build quality, unfettered software experience and camera speed represent the whole package.
Excerpt: If you're looking for an all-around great, feature-rich phone, the Moto X is a good choice.
Pros: Great battery life, Good display quality, Good camera quality, Good speaker quality, Good graphics performance, Very easy to type on, Comfortable to hold in hand, Great for reading, Very easy to navigate
Cons: Screen resolution is lower than some competitors
Summary: The Moto X has received some critical reviews, but unfairly so. Look at the price! Although not a budget phone like the Motorola Moto G , this is not a high ticket phone like the Samsung Galaxy S4 . It's priced more like the Galaxy S4 Mini , which it outperforms in nearly every respect. So if you're looking for an Android phone with high value and good (but not cutting-edge) performance, you could really do far, far worse than choose the Moto X.
Motorola Moto X review: A brilliant Android experience under Rs 25,000
10 December 2013
Summary: At Rs 23,999, Motorola is easily offering the best Android experience outside the Nexus clan and we feel this is the phone to get under Rs 25,000. For this price, you’re getting features that are not available even in the most expensive Android phone today. Add to that support for Wi-Fi ‘ac’, Miracast and the latest version of Android and you have yourself a pretty future proof device.
Conclusion: In one sense, nothing has changed since our initial Moto X review based on our US experience of this phone. But that was six months ago and pre-Nexus 5. Times have changed, but our soft spot for this phone hasn't. We still do wholeheartedly recommend the Moto X. Sure, it lacks the power of the higher-end competition, and it's more expensive than the Nexus 5, but there's more to a phone than raw power.
Pros: Great design, nice features over the standard Google offering, fantastic battery life
Cons: More expensive than the Nexus 5 and a lower spec, camera isn't amazing, no Moto Maker customisation (yet)
