Excerpt: Motorola's Moto X is a phone for the rest of us. Its standard black and white models may not look like much, but fire up the MotoMaker tool and you'll land yourself a beautiful smartphone that feels yours from top to bottom. It's simple, comfortable, easy to hold and – with little extras like Quick Capture and Active Display – a pleasure to use.
Conclusion: What you end up with in the Motorola MOTOLUXE therefore is a well-built smartphone for the masses. It doesn’t have the power or speed that higher-end devices have and the camera UI is a bit of a disaster, but when looking at the direct competition - the Orange Monte Carlo (ZTE Skate), with the MOTOLUXE's better screen, better camera and better build, despite a few glaring shortcomings Motorola's offering is definitely our preferred choice.
Pros: Large, sharp screen, Great build quality, Handy widgets
Cons: Convoluted camera UI, Terrible flash, Laggy performance
Conclusion: As for whether I would recommend the phone to anyone I think I would recommend it to literally anyone who is looking for an android device that’s a little different than any other but it will make you smile every time you use it.

Conclusion: The exact release date has not yet been revealed, but the phone is expected to start shipping to Europe and South America starting this February, which is pretty close. The price should be around $100 or less – I wouldn’t expect anyone to pay more than that for a mid-range phone on a contract.
Summary: Here we are again at the end of another review, this one I have really enjoyed doing more than most because the phone has really grown on me! I really didn’t expect it to as well so for that reason I think I like it even more.
