Motorola Moto X (2014) Smartphone Review

Notebookcheck
15 October 2014
  • Summary: 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 personalized over the Moto maker and even allows using exclusive materials like real wood and leather.
  • Pros: 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, Voice control is available even in standby, and it really makes sense then. Besides that, the Moto X presents a swift performance.
  • Cons: Little available storage, Non-expandable storage, Few accessories included, Uneven gaps, Screen could be brighter, Barely any accessories, No LTE Cat. 6, The storage capacity is tight in the 16 GB version. A micro-SD slot would have been nice.

Motorola Moto X (2nd Gen)

8 October 2014
  • Summary: In its new avataar, the Motorola Moto X is finally a true flagship, both on paper and in real world performance. It's very good value for money, but many may be put off by its weaknesses. The bad camera and limited storage may very well affect its sales. The phone is every bit the performer in all other respects though.
  • Pros: Smooth, fluid performance with no lag, Good build quality, feels very premium in both leather and wood, Full-HD display is bright and very premium, Good battery life
  • Cons: Camera quality is poor., Leather back can get scratched somewhat easily.

Motorola Moto X (2014) review: the modest Moto goes mainstream

pocketnow.com
18 September 2014
  • Conclusion: As the mainstream reboot of a niche product, the 2014 Moto X does what it needs to do. Like Star Trek 2009, it sacrifices some of the principles of its forerunner in its quest for greater mass appeal. The new phone’s bigger screen makes its casing more cumbersome, its battery less potent. Its quest to stand out from the pack has led to an aesthetic that cries out to be noticed, at the cost of some subtlety.
  • Pros:  Top-shelf specs,  Unique, useful software features,  Solid acoustic experience from earpiece to speakerphone,  More hardware customization options than any other Android phone
  • Cons: The Moto X is available in 16GB or 32GB variants and hundreds of trims , from Motorola, , though shipping times aren’t the 3-5 days they used to be when Motorola’s American manufacturing facility was up and running. Turnaround time for this reviewer’s 32GB leather-backed unit with custom trim and engraving is currently just shy of a month (though it’s possible that’s due to high demand).

Motorola Moto X (2014) review

Digitaltrends
14 September 2014
  • Conclusion: Motorola wowed us with the first Moto X, but the second generation is even better. The improved screen, high-end processor, and endlessly customizable design make the 2014 Moto X a true flagship smartphone. The nearly pure Android experience is refreshing as are the few flourishes Motorola added to the user experience. The first Moto X may have been a solid mid-range phone, but this year’s Moto X is undoubtedly high-end.
  • Pros: Personalized design, Fast processor, Great screen size
  • Cons: Not a great camera, Average battery life

Engadget
11 September 2014
  • 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.

  • 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, Some carrier bloatware

Moto X Review

mobilesyrup.com
9 May 2014
  • 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.

Motorola Moto X

s21.com
15 February 2014
  • 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.
