Moto X: Your Final Thoughts and Predictions on the Eve of Its Reveal

motorola xt912-3

Tomorrow is the day. We find out what Moto means by “designed by you.” Pricing will become official. A launch date will be decided upon. Surprises will likely be in store. We’ll see how smart a smartphone can be. You can make up your mind as to whether or not you want it. The hypebeasting can end.

Yes, I’m talking about the Moto X. This is your final predictions and thoughts thread. Have at it.

  • Bretton Key

    This is another great phone to become obosete in 5 months tops…

  • rreich49

    I’m glad it’s finally being released so we don’t have to hear predictions anymore. Now we can move forward to posts about what could have been.

  • Jaxon Wright
  • Joshua Bailey

    It’s the final countdown…duh nuhnuhnuh

  • Vitala
  • ghost_toast

    bionic has been completely silent these last few days…

  • Torrey Shelton

    lets say everything we’re predicting is true would this be worth replacing my Galaxy S4 over? I’m currently on AT&T and also what time does the event start?

  • BOB Dudek

    I predict that the world @3:01 EST be the same place as 1:45PM EST.

  • StankyChikin

    Has Bionic removed his lips from sarge yet?

  • A

    I for one think this will make or break carriers, obviously no on wants the new Verizon droid brand (the ugly red and kiddo robots are well outdated and dose not reach the true user-base of the product any longer) the Droid brand of moto is more Verizon then Moto. Verizon will have to take this phone on and have to offer the price and have stock Android, otherwise just about overnight we will see new carriers rise to overtake a user-base and market that keeps it alive. Look it this way, if the phone retails for $300-400 off contract, then into account the early termination fee of Verizon, mines at $325 then for me I spend 300 on the phone and 300 on the fee I will move on to another service provider. This is also why I predict there’s gonna be a lot of disappointed Verizon users out there. Any who I don’t think the phone will be less then $500 -$600 on Verizon. So its a no go any way.

  • jparker78

    Huge guesss…Off contract pricing – $199 16GB, $299 32 GB, $399, 64 GB

  • Todd_in_BMore

    I’m really hoping it has LTE and is supported on the AT&T go network (they let you on the LTE network now on the go plan) That will get me out of the 2-year contract trap once and for all. And before someone says T-Mobile their 3G+ (I refuse to call it 4G) is pretty pitiful in my region (I use it for my Nexus 7 and the service is, well, serviceable!)

  • Razma

    So how good is Tmobile truly? I had it years ago but switched to Verizon. Im really considering going back but Im afraid of not having as good of coverage, but Verizon LTE is spotty as it is and doesnt work at all indoors. Im out on Eastern Long Island

    • Matthew DiGiacomo

      I live in South Jersey and I get blazing fast LTE everywhere. It’s so much faster than Verizon’s in my experience.

  • Joshua P.

    I predict that aside from frequency bands and housing (and maybe the pricing) the phone will be the exact same phone as one of the already released droids.

  • Buckoman

    I said this before I/O and I’ll say it again. This is how I think it’ll go down:

    INTRODUCING THE X PHONE

    *Applause*

    THIS PHONE IS AMAZING, IT CAN DO ALL THIS NEW STUFF! CHECK OUT THIS SCREEN. THAT’S INNOVATION. MOTOROLA AND GOOGLE PARNERSHIP. MOTOROOGLE? GOTOROLA? WHO CARES, LOOK AT THIS HARDWARE!

    Matias Duarte is breakdancing on stage, Google Glasses are falling from the ceiling like confetti, and stobe lights are flashing at seizure level.

    THE X PHONE. CHECK OUT HOW THIN IT IS.

    WHO NEEDS SPECS WHEN YOU HAVE ROUNDED UNIBODY CONSTRUCTION?

    MOTOROLA X8 PROCESSOR.

    WE BOUND AND GAGGED VERIZON’S CEO AND HELD HIM AT GUNPOINT JUST SO YOU COULD AFFORD IT.

    Tim Cook cries himself to sleep on his iPillow.
    Or it could go completely rationally and be a normal announcement.
    Either way, I can’t wait.

    • bionicwaffle

      To their credit (Google? Moto?), it does seem like they’re right-sizing the hardware a bit. I think 720p on a 5″ or less display is smart. Same with the processor. They kept the CPU from last year basically but gave it a faster GPU, sure, still end of last year GPU but it’s quite a bit faster than the Adreno 225. I think it has the potential to be a great phone to replace any iPhone, a great phone for “the people”, possibly more than the geek. It should run any game perfectly. Even if I don’t like it not having MicroSD or a notification LED look at all the iPhone owners out there. This will be a great option for them and everyone out there with an old Android phone who just wants a good phone! This could serve them well.

      • Buckoman

        Right – Please consumers instead of geeks.

  • EvanTheGamer

    Today should be interesting. Hopefully Moto X is everything we all hope it will be, but something tells me that won’t be the case.

    Time will tell. If it is a game-changer, I might consider getting it. If not, SGS4.

  • chris420o

    i just hope u can lay this flat n use it no prob…looks really curvy lol…honestly i hope what everyone else hopes give me a real BUTTER experience and im good to go…give me some damn storage…give me a fully unlocked device…give me REALLY good battery life…and give me that moto build i love with a small footprint(i dont need a 5″ huge phone thats what i got my n7 for i want a smaller phone)…and finally give me 300 off contract and ill be happy and youll be mine

  • Tyler Casilio

    It will have 3-4 new awesome features that we do not know of
    Customization will be reasonable price wise
    $300-$369
    Simultaneous release on All Carriers on August 23

  • Ryan

    That DL is over hyping this product, and in return make a lot of people disappointed.

  • dan

    motox.com is now redirecting to motorola’s official site.

  • aDROIDfreeworld

    ive been following the x since last year – cant wait to hear the announcement! Hoping finally used their DROID leverage with Verizon to get a $349 off contract price for 32gb model – they were probably like “do you ever want a DROID device again? OK, then here are our demands”

  • anezarati

    what time is the press conference today?

    • Xcalibur1011

      There isn’t a live stream, but they will deliver info @3pm EST.

  • Chippah

    Most users who have been on this site want a top-tier device.
    I dont think the X will be good enough as it should of came out at least 12 months ago..

    The only devices to look forward to are the G2 and the Note 3 for us powerusers for devices out in the next 3-4 months on a US carrier.

    • PSU_DI

      Honestly for me personally, I can’t drop $600.00 on every top tier device that comes out off contract. I’d much rather have a phone with reasonable specs that does everything really well. I’m liking what I’m hearing about the improvements to the Snapdragon and battery life. If Moto really has optimized this device it’s going to be game changing especially if the off contract price stays on the low end due to it not having those “top tier” specs. I’m still rocking the Galaxy Nexus and it’s running 4.3 it still runs circles around most peoples phones. I have co workers with the ONE and it’s a great phone nice and loud, but overall I still see little to nothing that my phone can’t do well enough that it does. I predict that the Moto X will be a hit, and that it’ll prove you don’t need excessive specs to make a great device thats affordable.

    • chris420o

      says who?…i love people who wanna criticize bc it doesnt have a snapdragon 800 in it like its gonna be a slouch…look at the s4…all those bells n whistles and it lags lol come on bro…look at the iphone less specs than s4 but runs smoother…all i ask is that moto does the same thing…optimize…dont get hardon over specs its end user results that matter

  • Weber
  • Charlie Brown

    Now, Lucy, quit picking the ball
    up when I go to kick it. Okay, here
    I go again…

  • fartbubbler

    my prediction?

    FACKWORS!

  • ApplesNAndroids

    I’m excited for this phone. I really like stock android but after having my Galaxy Nexus for so long, then going to the GS3 and Note 2 I’m sadly back on an iPhone waiting for a quality stock android phone. I think I’ve got higher hopes for this phone than any of you considering I’m putting a lot on this phone already. In my mind I’m telling myself THIS WILL BE THE PHONE THAT MAKES ME LEAVE My iphone 5 behind. (Note: I’m also a current android user; Nexus 7, Nexus 7 [2013] )

    • qestlve

      Why did you go to an IPhone instead of back to the GNexus?

  • tamir

    299$ for 16gb and this phone will be mine

  • Al-Burrit0

    I remember when the moto x was viewed like a majestic unicorn.

    • Nothavingit

      Me too lol

  • Guest

    Wow. Finally after months of hypebeasting, it will finally come to an end. Man I literally remember the first rumor i saw of the moto x was around the last week of December 2012. Been long 7 months, but finally it is tomorrow. Oh and when the phone was seen like this ultimate unicorn! If anything tomorrow seems like a unicorn. Oh my im getting soft haha.

    • Guest

      I just want this phone to succeed and not be a bust.

  • Alexander Garcia

    I’m expecting a prettier looking version of the Droid Ultra/Maxx

  • Hunterh2

    This phone will be sold at a starting price of $300 off contract for every carrier (and yes including Verizon)
    Each cell service will offer it at a very low subsidized price
    Direct updates from Google
    Customization GALORE! (They will really go overboard about customization)
    Much more difficult to break
    Specific online store/website for accessories or color changes
    Amazing battery life
    Wireless charging
    THE NEXT BIG THING (I know it’s a cliché thing to say but I think many of these leaks/rumors have been on purpose for hype but more importantly surprise. I believe there is one BIG thing that has yet to be revealed about this device. We’ll just have to wait and see…..)

  • EnterTheNexus

    Who cares for the Moto X, I want the Butterfly S or HTC One.

  • Reality

    Specs and features mean nothing if your phone is dead. Droid Maxx > Moto X

    • Frank512

      While I feel the same way, $300 < $700 for those of us buying full retail. Hopefully it has good battery life.

  • jcorf

    If I’m happy with it I’ll be able to stay on Verizon. But more likely I’ll just have to wait for the next Nexus and switch to T Mobile.

  • me

    It’s going to be Motorola’s Multi Carrier Flagship phone similar in hype to the Galaxy S4 or the HTC One. But it will not be a Nexus Phone, and it will not be sold by Google, and it will not be Google Branded, and It will not be cheap as everybody hopes. It will simply be another phone manufacturer’s flagship device. It will be available on all the carriers eventually.

    The phone to buy this year is the Nexus 5 with Key Lime Pie. I also think that Android 4.3 already has a lot of the Key Lime Pie features in it minus a lot of visual polish. The Key Lime Pie Rumors and hype will start coming out after this thing is released. Google doesn’t want to spoil Motorola’s Launch.

  • Guest

    My thoughts.

  • i love it

  • Trevor

    The surprise? REALLY strong vibrator.

  • Any word on a live stream of the event?

    • Franklin Ramsey

      Yes, there won’t be one.

      • Yeah, now I’ve read how they’ve structured the event with small groups and embargoes. Seems really odd to do it that way, and I wonder what the rationale is.

        • Franklin Ramsey

          I’m guessing the rationale was to try to keep it smaller so they could try to sell groups of techs on the features, while trying to not focus on the price.

  • Jackson

    I love that design

    • Trevor

      Me too.

  • Jackson

    I wonder if the droid maxx could work on T-Mobiles network

  • Anderson Cheong

    I happen to have the Les Miserables “One day more” song whispering in my mind. That is why I made this. Just for fun! Hope you guys like it too! ONE DAY MORE!

  • Sporttster

    More interested in the Droid Maxx. Looks better, bigger, faster, huge batt. What’s this got to offer that even comes close to that? Biggest problem by far for me for any of em is no sd card. That’s just a totally ignorant decision by Googlerola

  • Matthew DiGiacomo

    What time is the event/live blog?

    • Franklin Ramsey

      There isn’t one. Sadly.

      • Matthew DiGiacomo

        Not a stream. I’m asking when droid-life is starting their live BLOG for the event.

        • Franklin Ramsey

          Again, there isn’t one.

  • beaumac

    VZW is not letting a phone get you out of a 2 year commitment. It’s going to be 600.

  • jt O’Brien

    I just want a phone that can get me through a day of heavy usage on play music, twitter and messaging and still run smooth as butter with a nice display.

    I also want to keep my unlimited data on VZW so if this is cheap off contract I’ll want it. If it’s 600 I’ll wait for the Note 3.

  • Larry Bublitz

    — ON contract, it’ll be $49 and $99 for every provider (two sizes of phone).

    — OFF contract (GSM onliy) will be $249 or $299
    — Verizon not available off-contract (I just don’t see them doing anything to threaten their contracts.)

    • needa

      which hand did you use to pull that out of thin air.

      • David Hayden

        This is a predictions thread.

      • Larry Bublitz

        Primary hand.

  • Jeff

    I think Moto may have something up their sleeve in regards to the specs of this phone or maybe it’s the first non Nexus device to launch with 4.3. They need something to compete with all the other flagship devices. Selling it off contract for about $300 of contact would alsobe nice.

  • shecalledmejay

    My prediction $257.46 cent off contract. Just Watch

  • guest

    moto x colors..

    • Jackson

      Is this your own doing looks pretty awesome lol

    • shecalledmejay

      I want to know what the wooden one looks like

  • vincent scala

    i got my Nexus 4 running a t mobile and getting lte so i’m happy even have it overclocked to 1.7ghz runs perfect for me so could really care less about a moto x at this point

  • Glenn

    After the Xoom, I’m so done with Moto!

  • Ron_Swanson

    Just curious to see the price really..

  • M3D1T8R

    Prediction: Verizon version won’t arrive for several weeks (months?), and will never be available for customization/upgrades online. Which means I won’t be able to get a 64GB version, even if such an option is available for gsm versions.

    Hope I’m wrong about this, but that’s my fear.. If true I’ll have to stick with my very nice DNA (provided from Asurion after they sent me FIVE bad replacement 32GB G.Nexus’s). Gotta say the DNA has impressed. Was worried about the battery, but compared to the GN it is night and day difference, probably 4x the screen on time vs GN’s ridiculous 90 or so minutes. If only it had expandable storage or at least 32 internal! Still like it way more than my previous S3.. Those buttons drove me crazy, so happy to be done with Samsung.

    In any case, after five months of waiting for the X, I’m looking forward to tomorrow.

  • Jackski

    The new Droids will easily smoke this phone.

  • bogie1519

    Not much interest

  • jason

    Motorola needs to come out with a quad core processor phone…I’m satisfied with the razr maxx hd….only if it would have a faster processor.

  • jbdan

    They already sold me months ago. I like new devices and will grab one. Don’t care if its a “game changer” or not. Can’t wait to try it!

  • Viz

    It will have a Vagina.

  • percysnow

    Its the end of the nexus line I think so motor X2 and so on is the new thing…

    • me

      No way, the Nexus line keeps getting bigger and bigger. Look a the play store. Google knows they can make hardware that sells, look at the Nexus 7 and the Chromecast. Not only that but the Nexus is the phone of choice for engineers and developers.

  • Tirionfive

    What I want to be a twist: All release versions actually ship with Quad core S4 Pro.

    What will happen: Not this.

  • Philip A. Kaiser

    I think the big hype behind this thing is Motorola’s attempt to clone the Samsung and Apple business model by making a single form factor across multiple carriers. They want to sell not just the phones but cases, docks, gizmo’s, etc. The last time this worked for them was the original RAZR flip phone. That thing was a cash cow for them and they sold as much junk for those phones as they did phones. Multiple colors, carriers, and everyone had one. Very similar to the iPhone. Every carrier had it, they all make money off the numerous amounts of cases, docks, and everything else you can think of. Was the iPhone the best device to ever come out or was it merely a mid range device with some superior marketing behind it. I think 500 million dollars will offer some decent marketing. We will see. We will see.

    • Al-Burrit0

      Yea if you see cheap prepaid carriers they still have the OG Razr Flip Phone.

      • Scooter

        My dad just retired his yesterday.

  • Raul

    I feel like this phone is going to have amazing battery life because if you think about it all those small task are going to be sent to the lower power processor instead of the high speed dual core. Sending those task to the higher clocked dual core is kind of overkill and wastes the battery faster.

    • Trevor

      I think the 720p screen res will help too. My S4’s screen eats battery like nobody’s business. Except mine. It’s kind of my business.

  • Ionicburn

    Who cares about cost! You all will go out and pay 500+ for a buggy overlay sub par phone because it has what? Quad core and 1080p which on a 4+ inch phone makes no difference.. Wow you all need to stick with Jobs…. Its all about getting more for less and that is what this phone is going to be about one all the lame carriers. There is your slim shady

    • James Lewis

      You sir will be raped tonight

  • Philip A. Kaiser

    Waterproof. That’s the ace up their sleeve.

    • King Lo

      The last 2 razr’s were pretty much waterproof. It’d more of a surpise if it WASN’t nano-coated.

  • thebigmann

    Anyone know if we can we watch the event live? If so, how and at what time?

  • NoBullFitness

    Since got note2 nothing has sparked my interest other than note3.

  • TylerChappell

    The cheapest this phone’s off-contract price would ever be is $450.

    • me

      I see it priced at $550

  • InvaderDJ

    I’m surprisingly excited. Since I’m stuck on Verizon and no network is where I need it to be coverage and speed wise to really switch I’ve only got a few options until the end of the year. It is between the X, the DROID MAXX, the One (whenever Verizon releases it), and the Galaxy Note 3.

    My hope for the X is that it is less than $400 off contract on Verizon. And that the X8 SoC and optimizations Motorola supposedly made to its software means that it performs well while having good battery life. If it can do that, I’m sold. My pipe dream hope? Unlockable bootloader. Knowing how much Verizon hates those words I know that it will never happen, but I can dream if nothing else.

    I think the “made by you” stuff isn’t going to be anything major. On GSM carriers and potentially on Verizon you’ll be able to change you color, get it engraved and maybe set your wallpaper. You’ll do that online, and you’ll probably have to get the phone unsubsidized. I don’t think there will any different materials, at most you will be able to get a glossy back, matte back, and some fake carbon fiber looking stuff but even that sounds unrealistic.

  • Sam

    Google glass integration.

  • NexusMan

    Predictions: Phone will be amazing. All the whining and moaning about “mid range specs,” will get showed up as Motorola demonstrates, like Apple has done for quite some time, that their optimization of not only the hardware, but the software side of things is what matters the most in creating a phenomenal user experience. Also, several innovative, interesting and useful features not yet leaked will be revealed, and bloggers will write stories saying things like, “who knew?” “nobody saw this coming,” “there actually were some things kept secret,” “Motorola has managed to shock us,” and “despite all the not so great spec leaks, Moto has actually managed to impress.” I predict I will then respond to said bloggers saying, “I knew,” and “I told you so.” Battery and camera will be exceptional. Moto’s new X8 Computing system will prove to be pretty fantastic, and real, not some marketing mumbo jumbo. And all of this will be offered for an incomparably low price for an unlocked phone. Oh, and the phone will be pretty damn cool.

    • guest

      im sure nothing like that happen ..make no mistake moto x will be a good phone ..with some very unique capabilities ..but all the tech bloggers care about is number of cores and macro shots of screen showing difference between 1080p vs 720 p screen, So all the tech blogger will be like meh!! ..some cool features ..but its still midrange phone so nothing exciting here ..and folks reading these blogs will complain that it is not as insanely cheap as $199 off contract as it has two less cores compared to other devices out there ..

      • guest

        just watched vergecast the otherday ..the guy nilay patel accused motorola of lying about x8 system bluntly and just called it a crappy midrange device ..without even understanding what x8 does or how it works ..The frustrating thing here is all the tech bloggers with half-ass amateurish knowledge lead a ton of people in wrong direction

        • NexusMan

          I agree…I listened to that Vergecast, and Nilay was such a complete idiot on it. On another recent Vergecast, he also trashed the Chromecast, complainng about all these things that it couldn’t do (things that it actually CAN do) and then he attempted to show everyone how “dumb” the chromecast was by demonstrating it couldn’t do these things, and in his demonstration he showed that it actually could do those things and, once again, he looked like a fool. He, then, on a later date, gave it a glowing review.

          • Ben Landwehr

            Nilay is seriously a joke. Why is he one of the faces of The Verge? I cannot stand the dude.

          • NexusMan

            I know, man. I used to go to the live tapings of On The Verge, and Nilay has always been the one that I can’t stand.

      • NexusMan

        I have yet to see tech bloggers being “meh” and complaining about iPhones and iPads being “midrange,” yet the iDevices have long lagged considerably behind their industry (notably Android) counterparts in terms of specs. The iPhone has never had a 1080p screen and the iPad mini is not even 720p! Yet they are constantly heralded across the internets, so clearly, “number of cores and macro shots of screen showing difference between 1080p vs 720p screen,” is not the ONLY thing all tech bloggers care about.

        • guest

          ya I agree with you I was being a little too harsh .but apple devices live in different world ..when it comes to android I get the impression that all the sites only care about numbers in the spec’s ..otherwise how would you explain calling moto x low-mid range because it has two less core’s even though it has same high end GPU and two additional non arm based-cores?..so addition of two arm cpu based cores makes a device high end ..that’s the only part that goes into the device that makes it high end?

          • guest

            just add to my previous comment ..because of all this reporting in the tech blogs that it is low mid range..all the folks are expecting insane prices of 199$ off contract which it wont be ..and thus disappointing lot of people and incorrectly setting up expectations for all the people reading tech blogs ..

          • NexusMan

            I agree. My point is, and I think yours is too, that it’s silly to be that way. Spec wars are so played out. We all want the latest and greatest, however the latest does not always equal the greatest. What’s the point of the best specs on the market, for example, when the device is bogged down by unnecessary crapware and processes and encased in a cheap, gaudy plastic shell? When your software is properly optimized you don’t need to run the spec race.

    • Josh Holtrust

      NexusMan……………what a well thought out and articulate comment. Very rare around here. I like your predictions. I agree, now that GOOGLE is producing a phone for the OS they make, like Apple, I am hoping they are going to do what Apple does. iOS doesn’t require the highest specs because it is much better optimized for the device it’s running on. It’s not licensed to whoever wants to use it. I think there is HUGE potential for the X……….. We will just have to see if the supposed 500 million dollar marketing campaign can show consumers that this is a good thing! Lower specs in favor of better optimization! I will be going into it with an open mind. 🙂

  • Jonathan Ly

    Prediction –

    $350 dollars unlocked….for AT&T and T Mobile.

    Available on contract from Verizon and Spring for 149.99, unsubsidized 450+

  • kirk ngo

    50/50 on this one

  • Kevin Gallagher

    I am upset that it won’t be shipping with 4.3

  • DainLaguna

    Everyone will needlessly hate on it. No like seriously, thats whats going to happen. Just wait. Regardless of carriers, or price, we will see plenty of ‘meh, i’ll just keep my gnex or wait for the note3’

  • chris125

    I expect people to complain about it not being high end and/or it not being available right away. Only thing that would disappoint me is if it isn’t available at the play store price for Verizon customers. Everything else is an added bonus. Excited even if it is a “midrange phone”

  • Derek L.

    I’m expecting solid build quality (typical Moto).
    Great battery life.
    Mediocre to awesome camera.
    Reliable.
    Cheap off contract price.
    Unlocked bootloader
    Completely Google supported meaning they update it directly and not carriers.

    For VZW…
    Locked bootloader.
    Updated by VZW.
    Bloat out the ass.
    Inflated price.
    Worse battery and camera.
    Essentially a terrible phone that gets thrown to the wayside.

    • Daeshaun Griffiths

      Let’s have a little hope for VZW to be on board with this…

      • Derek L.

        But.. but.. but… it’s VZW!

    • imnotmikal

      I don’t think the battery or camera will differ, but I would not be surprised if it ends up with a locked BL, bloat, and a higher price.

      I also wouldn’t be surprised if it comes to Verizon as the “Motorola X Droid” just so they can slap the Droid name on it. And to confuse existing Droid X users.

      • Derek L.

        Oh I wasn’t saying it’ll come with a worse camera or battery. I’m saying since it’s on VZW, it’ll just be a worse phone altogether thanks to VZW.

        Even if the camera is the same, VZW will make them change it to their own proprietary camera software that charges you every time you snap a photo!

  • OneForTheGoodDays

    My prediction is that we know everything we can possibly know at this point and there will be a truckload… a large truckload… of people who are going to be devastated by the lack of reveals…. it’s a nice phone, but not one phone to save them all.

    • King Lo

      That’s probably the reason it would be live streamed. No audience oohs and ahhs.

    • I don’t know, there was a Moto rep at the Droid Ultra launch that stated you would be able to tell the difference between the Moto X. Hopefully they still have something up their sleeve and didn’t give away all their tricks with the Droid launch.

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    ~9 hours of screen on time
    Great camera
    More Google Now commands
    Decent gaming

  • Tyler

    Is there a live stream for this event tomorrow?

    • Project Mayhem

      No

      no

      • Veriz0n

        Step away from the computer and quit posting so much. Only me and Bionic can post so much in one article.

        • Godzilla

          LOL, ok. *drops the mic* the floor is yours

          • Veriz0n

            Thank you 😀

            Let the show begin!

  • As long as it has an unlocked/unlockable bootloader, I’m all in for the unlocked/T-Mobile version if it has LTE.

  • Ray

    I’ll start caring more when it’s available in Australia. Until then, meh!

    • Project Mayhem

      What is this Australia?

      • Ray

        You said it!

      • Philip A. Kaiser

        It’s that island south of Asia that doesn’t produce anything…

  • Brandon Haines

    might be posting my note II on ebay pretty damn soon

  • kyle

    im hoping the best features/perks of this phone haven’t leaked yet and it’ll catch everyone off guard. what those features might be i have no idea, maybe it will make me a damn breakfast sandwich

    • Jackson

      I completely agree about the breakfast I thought bacon specifcally

      • kyle

        haha, i didn’t even see your comment about bacon. i think we’re on to something here, motorola better take note

        • Jackson

          Every now and then I hope ceos of major corps look at droid life regularly

          • kyle

            we may be a small percent of the mobile phone user market but we sure as hell know what we want, even if it includes bacon, they’d be smart to cater to our demands

          • Jackson

            I don’t know if were that small droid life is 11,000 in the world and 4,000 in the us on alexa they have a lot of readers lol

    • moelsen8

      Maybe some tater tots too.

  • Brendan Owens

    Buying this thing off contract and taking it to T-Mobile right away.

  • Jackson

    Depending on how nice this is I might sell my nexus 4 just cause of moto x build quality and lte and battery life and camera and that’s it.

  • Dustin Wen

    The Moto X will be the phone that we deserve, but not the one we need.

    • Godzilla

      We will hunt it, because it can take it.

      • Destroythanet

        Time to go mobile.

    • OneForTheGoodDays

      And now you have my permission to sigh.

  • XvierX

    I’ll likely end up getting this phone just to try it out until the Note 3 is released, then sell off the Moto X. Either way, I’m on Verizon so I’m going to be waiting for a while. I’m not looking for a beast in terms of specs, I’d just like a phone that’s smooth and does what it’s built to do. If it’s falls short of that then I’ll just sell it and go back to my Note 2 and continue the wait for the Note 3. That’s my plan.

  • Ronald Bernard

    Almost considering skipping family zoo day for my daughters birthday tomorrow, so I can see the reveal. Hoping for some surprises we have not heard about. Low price is all I need. the specs are more then sufficient for me especially if this 50% more battery statement is for real. A gradual upgrade over my Gnex will keep me happy!

  • decidedtochangename

    If it lives up to the hype my Note 2 will be hitting swappa.com. I still have a soft spot for Moto since they got me into Android.

  • Tyler

    What is this? x-mas?

  • JoeTi

    My prediction is that Motorola will leave us wondering what the next gen version of the Motorola X phone can do. That way, if it’s reasonably price off contract this is a huge win for Motorola. That means that I (and a bunch of peeps) will be buying this one off contract just to be able to get the next version of this in the next 12 months (or less)!

  • Mo

    I think the only thing that’s left to know is the price and availability on different carriers.

  • Godzilla

    4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      BAD LUCK! GET OUT!

      • Godzilla

        LOL

    • Trevor

      Epic

  • moelsen8

    I predict there’s gonna be a lot of disappointed Verizon users out there.

    • Why am I thinking the same thing?

      • James Hill

        Me too.

        • Eric R.

          Verizon’s will run MotoBlur and will be upgraded to Android 4.3 in 2015

      • William_Morris

        : sigh : Yeah, me too.

      • TheRobotCow

        I think the new Droid line may have something to do with it.

      • M0nk

        Considering the 3 moto devices launched in Vzn last week… The Moto X not going to happen for now I guess

        • Chris Sickels

          The estimated date for the Moto X is August 23, 2013. The release date for the Droids (Mini, Ultra & Maxx) is August 20, 2013. I can wait three days if the Moto X is amazing somehow. We’ll have a better picture tomorrow, I’m sure.

      • EC8CH

        Because all the years of blogging about Verizon have turned you bitter and pessimistic.

        Have some faith… Tomorrow is going to be awesome… All our dreams will come true.

        • Trevor

          ALL our dreams? So Sparky is finally gonna come back from that farm my parents sent him to?

        • Sherlock Holmes

          Just cause I have nothing better to do on a Wednesday night.

          It seems as though our beloved friend Bionic has been operating under another account for a while. Take Exhibit A for example. Verizon has been on here for a while and doesn’t know Bionic? Give me a break. LOL

          • Veriz0n

            Look ma, I’m famous! Seriously though I can’t believe someone went through the trouble of taking a screenshot and posting it on here just to call out Verizon. LOL that is dedication.

          • Verizon

            You need to find a new screen name troll boy. Come up with your own identity and try to be a little original.

          • Al-Burrit0

            Ok…who the hell cares people can do what they want. Verizon has been here for a while and he is pretty damn funny IMO. Im not trying to blame anyone, but i must! There is one troll (idk who) that has mutiple accounts just kiddy trolling in fact, e.g. Bion1c and Bi0nic. Now veriz0n? Oh and the now network and at&t? Cmon!

          • Verizon

            Thank you! Is it that hard to be original?

          • Al-Burrit0

            Darn it LG is more original than this troll! Lol

          • Bi0nic

            I feel deeply offended sir.

          • Al-Burrit0

            Well if you really aren’t a troll them my apologies, but i had to blame someone! Lol Really looking at your post it seems like bion1c is more of the troll…I just think ITS COINCIDENCE that 2 bionic users popped up in the same day. So again i cannot trust you all 100% yet.

          • JoshGroff

            That now network and verizon comment string yesterday was hilarious. I approve.

          • Al-Burrit0

            yea i admit it was funny, but i was just saying no one is coming up with original usernames.

          • JoshGroff

            If the comments are original and funny, does the username have to be as well? Admittedly some are neither funny nor original, but the same can be said of any other posts on here.

          • Alanis

            The irony.

          • EvanTheGamer

            Seems like the only troll here is you, friend.

          • Verizon

            I’m not and never have been a troll, friend. Do I make jokes about Verizon as a company? Hell yes and damn good ones. Do I try to impersonate another person, spread misinformation or intentionally piss anyone off? NO. I try to inject some comedy here and there, but that is about it.

          • Veriz0n

            You’re a troll. Just admit it and quit being so annoying. I don’t get how someone who goes by ‘Verizon’ and pretends to be them doesn’t consider himself a troll. A troll in denial is as bad as they get.

            Edit:
            You admit to making “damn good” jokes? ROFL. That is hilarious! I take my other statement back. Only thing worse than a troll in denial is a guy who thinks his jokes are “damn good”.

          • Milind Shah

            Verizon and Veriz0n? Bring it on !

          • Verizon

            Hmmm, let’s see here. I just grabbed the first definition I found.

            Troll
            1a. Noun
            One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument.

            (Nope, not doing that. Never tried to start an argument or cause disruption here. I could say differently about you though.)

            1b. Noun
            A person who, on a message forum of some type, attacks and flames other members of the forum for any of a number of reasons such as rank, previous disagreements, sex, status, ect.
            A troll usually flames threads without staying on topic, unlike a “Flamer” who flames a thread because he/she disagrees with the content of the thread.
            (Not that either.)

            1c. Noun
            A member of an internet forum who continually harangues and harasses others. Someone with nothing worthwhile to add to a certain conversation, but rather continually threadjacks or changes the subject, as well as thinks every member of the forum is talking about them and only them. Trolls often go by multiple names to circumvent getting banned.

            (Not doing that either. As I’ve said before, I have one account and this is it. Unlike you who obviously has several.)

            I don’t attack people, unless they attack me (like you and Sherlock). The only thing I do here is attempt to inject some comedy with regards to things people dislike about Verizon as a company. I make rather obvious jokes to have fun and, for the most part, others enjoy it. So explain to me how this is being a troll there troll boy. You and Sherlock are the ones disrupting this comment section, I am simply replying to your accusations and trolling. The things you are injecting have zero to do with the topic and are nothing but attacks on me. So, where and how am I trolling again?

          • Veriz0n

            Pretty sad when you have to resort to looking up a definition to defend your claim. You’re not a troll like me but you are still a troll. Nobody needs a definition to see that.

          • Banks

            Both of you guys are losers. I just can’t decide which one is the biggest.

          • Veriz0n

            You’re funny.

          • Verizon

            Yep, you’re obvious and I’m done. You can’t even come up with a real reply.

          • Veriz0n

            Can we expect more posts from you? I would love to continue this conversation in a new article. I find it amusing.

          • Verizon

            I was referring to knowing who is as a person dipsh1t. Go back and reread, I edited my post to making it a little clearer for the clinically stupid.

          • Kanaga Deepan N

            verizon (oh) and veriz0n (zero) are different right….

          • Tyler Casilio

            Multiple Personality Disorder is my guess

          • Verizon

            Really?

          • Tyler Durden
          • Brad Pitt

            Seems like Tyler has found himself a new wife after Bionic left.

            #buttpirates4life

          • Tyler Durden

            You are unfunny and unoriginal. Don’t quit your day job.

        • michael arazan

          Buying a lottery ticket then

      • It is literally the only thing I’m certain of tomorrow. Somehow I’ll be disappointed. The phone will be priced too high, be locked down in some stupid Verizon way, or be delayed into infinity, forcing me to finally leave Verizon and go to T-Mobile.

        • That’s why I’ve been contract-free on T-mo for 5 months now with an N4 – best move I ever made, even if the coverage isn’t as omnipresent.

          • This is probably the best idea. I’ve already checked my home and work and T-Mobile has 4G LTE across both. If I didn’t still have one line remaining with a contract, I’d break now. But the ETF is still more expensive than the savings I’d glean from another 6 months of Verizon’s service.

          • JoshGroff

            I just switched back to T-Mobile the other day and got an S4. Been with T-Mobile for 7 years before I made the jump to Verizon, wasn’t much of an upgrade. Bringing back unlimited, and now the JUMP plan, no reason not to switch.

          • MicroNix

            Bah. After hearing all the hoo ha yesterday about t-mo I looked at the coverage maps for my area (about 15 min outside a major metro area) and everywhere for like a 20 mile radius is 2 freaking G!! With Verizon I get LTE. So i call BS on t-mo coverage. It still sucks bad to Verizon.

          • Prox

            What you stated here is a downfall for T-Mo. Give them some time, I think they will improve. Until then its impossible to operate a smart phone on 2G all the time.

            I have T-Mo in a major metro area and the service is amazing but I live and work in that metro area.

    • Godzilla

      reason?

      • moelsen8

        They’re all hoping for a $200-$300 off-contract price on this thing on Verizon. Hey, I hope they get it. That’d be the new Motorola I want to see. But back here in reality..

        • Godzilla

          Meh, im not buying one anyway, im just curious about it.

        • Mapekz

          Remember, this isn’t made at Foxxcon…this is made in the US. The Nexus 4 with its amazing hardware was only so cheap because it was manufactured outside and using bulk components shared with the Optimus G. This phone will cost $600-$700, especially if Google doesn’t want to piss of Samsung/HTC who are selling their GPE phones at this price.

          And the X8 chip in the Motorola possesses enough engineering and design to warrant a higher premium than a typical Qualcomm S4 can demand.

          • Mayoo

            You are so much right that I hate you! Darn I’ll be so disappointed…

          • Mapekz

            I’m hoping they keep calling it a ‘mid-range’ phone so at least it won’t break $450, but even then with a 32GB storage option and custom color backplates it can definitely go well over that.

          • DainLaguna

            except that the x8 chip is, for the most part, marketing bs.

            that you believe apparently.

          • Eric R.

            The DROID Ultra has Quadrant scores of only 6500 that’s half of the S4 and One, but its supposed to be ‘Energy Efficient’

          • Butters619

            Honestly what it sounds like to me is they put some single task low power SoCs in the phone so the ‘always listening’ and other features can run while the snapdragon sleeps.

          • M0nk

            Mmm. There are very good Chinese smartphones with android 4.2, quad core cpu, 1GB ram, 16GB flash and 720p displays for $150 unlocked including worldwide shipping. I bought one at pandawill for my wife and she loves it. I guess that Moto should be able to do it for $300…

          • Adam Smith

            According to former AndroidandMe.com owner, Taylor, he posted some news saying the phone would cost $225 for raw materials and lots of analysts quoting around $300.

          • Mapekz

            According to former Androidandme.com owner, Taylor, it was “confirmed” that Jelly Bean 4.1 was supposed to allow OEM customizations to sit on top of stock Android so that you could turn them off at your whim while still receiving the latest Android OTAs as well as many other great features all of us Android geeks were hoping to see. I can’t find the exact link anymore – I bet it’s been taken down now – but everyone on the Twitterverse was massively pissed when they found out that everything he shared was false though he claimed it was all official and happening.

            The only thing that is confirmed is that Motorola is having their event in 8 1/2 hours and will tell us one or two new things that we haven’t already heard. If the spec sheet and all the evidence we have leading to the event are to be treated as fact, then there’s a good chance this phone will cost at least as much as a $350 16GB Nexus 4 off-contract regardless of what news sources and pseudo-web-blogger-journalists claim.

      • Stnkycheezman

        remember how much hype the tbolt and bionic got? remember how many times VZW made you say you’re gonna switch? remember how you’re never 100% satisfied with the way the phone works, which is why you’re constantly flashing roms, and installing home replacements from OG days of “launcher pro” to “nova launcher”. Remember that galaxy nexus you have that you say is the happiest a phone has made you feel? the phone that runs out of battery in 3 hours and makes loud screeches and static on every phone call? the same phone that’s so overloaded by googles newer OS’s that it can hardly open a web page anymore? remember those things?

        Those are some reasons for being skeptical

        Still can’t wait for the reveal tomorrow though haha….

        and props to anybody that remembers launcher pro

        • moelsen8

          I much preferred Helix!

        • Mrhug3

          Still waiting for the app rewrite…

        • tyguy829

          Can’t wait for that LP rewrite! Any day now!

          • ReturnOfTheMack

            Don’t worry Fede is almost done with it. The Droid X bootloader unlock will be out soon too. 🙂

          • Butters619

            I said “it won’t take longer than the launcher pro rewrite” in a work meeting the other day and nobody got the joke 🙁

        • Greyhame

          Definitely remember Launcher Pro! I’m with you on most everything except the GNex running poorly on 4.3. For me it’s been a great experience so far. It even improves a bit on battery life.

          I think Verizon is going to cater to the new Droids and the X will get the shaft. Then the toughest decision isn’t about the phone, it’s about who I should switch to. Right now I’m thinking AT&T prepaid. Let’s hope we’re wrong and this thing drops for $299/350 for the 16/32 GB models.

          • JD_26

            even if its 350/400 ill take it

        • jcorf

          My Galaxy Nexus runs great, well except for the battery life. But that’s why I’ve got a spare battery to get me through.

          • Jeralmac

            Same here. And ShinyRom breathed new life in to it….

        • T4rd

          Haha, you nailed it.
          My Note 2 has pretty much been my first no-compromise phone though. It excells in every aspect compared to all of my previous phones (Gnex, Rezound and OG Droid). The only small gripe I have with it is that it’s somewhat awkward for me to use with one hand. But I’m pretty much use to it now and love the large display.

    • Don’t jinx it!

      ~Sincerely, a Verizon customer

    • Derek L.

      🙁

      You’re totally right. There’s no way anything good can come Verizon’s way.

    • LiterofCola

      Not at all, if this fails to launch by the end of the month, I’ll be sticking with my Droid Maxx preorder. win win.

    • deadpenguins

      If that’s the case, I’m out. I’d love to hold on to the great coverage, but my rear just can’t take the chaffing anymore.

      • Greyhame

        My sentiments exactly.

    • LiterofCola

      ..

    • Alex Goings

      If it comes down to it this will be the final straw that I say F it and leave Verizon… The only question is where to go?

      • moelsen8

        if you’re in their coverage area, t-mobile really is awesome. otherwise jump on a prepaid at&t mvno.

        • Alex Goings

          Thanks for the advice. I just really don’t know how t-mobile is in my area. I dont know anyone who has it (which probably means it sucks). But I do know that at&t is good in the detroit area (where I live outside of school) and at Purdue (where I go to school).

          • moelsen8

            ya gotta just get a sim for each and try them out. in my experience at&t is pretty good everywhere.. just as good as verizon’s coverage, if not better in some spots for me. i’d love to be supporting tmo but every time i went home to visit family i couldn’t even make a phone call out in the boonies where at&t was great for them. it’s frustrating.

          • Alex Goings

            I’ll have to give that a try. I think my biggest issue is that I drive from Detroit down to Central Indiana a lot, and at&t seems to have amazing coverage all over the middle of nowhere cornfields of Indiana. As in I wont even have cell service on Verizon but friends on at&t have full 4G.

          • michael arazan

            Don’t get T-Mo in MO and IL, sucks if you venture a mile away from the highway and drops signal.

          • Alex Goings

            Thanks for the advice. I hunt in MO near the IL border so this is relavent… especially since it is in the middle of nowhere…

          I am very very happy with it. I test drove the 2.5 limited they had in stock and they are having someone pick up the one I want and have it ready for me to pick up tomorrow. I cant wait.

          • bkosh84

            My wife and I just bought an XV about a month and a half ago and LOVE the car. Mom in law bought a Forester around the same time and its really nice too. Subaru is kicking butt lately with cars!

            just got mine a few hours ago, simply love it.

      • Colin Huber

        Awesome! Crazy coincidence, because I’m picking up my new 2015 Nissan Skyline tomorrow at the same time! It actually hasn’t been made yet, but Nissan is doing a SICK remake in memorial of the Skyline from Fast and Furious 2. I’m super excited about it because nobody will have it and I know all of you guys on here are excited for me. Wish me luck! Oh, I’ll be here tomorrow, too, Kellex! :)))))))))))))))))

  • GJB

    I’m betting $399 off contract for 16 GB, $439 for 32 GB. I’d consider it at this price since it would allow me to keep my unlimited Verizon data at a reasonable price for a solid phone. If it can hit $299 for the 16 GB, $339 for 32 GB, slam dunk.

    • Godzilla

      im thinking 300 for 16 Gigs and 350 for 32

            Dude please don’t become the next Bionic. You’re starting to post way too much and that’s the road he went down. For all we know you’ll probably start imagining fake people like Sarge that talk to you in your sleep.

          • Godzilla

            What? I guessed a price for off contract. How is that at all like Bionic?

            I think he was talking about Veriz0n.

          • ERIFNOMI

            I’m thinking he meant to comment at the Verizon guy..

          • Guest

            Nope. I was referring to Godzilla…although that Verizon guy has gotten annoying too.

          • James Hill

            Well, I heard from LP said that they would be available with robot unicorn back plate, and cost $300 off contract, and only come with 16g of storage (13.5-formatted). That, and they announced a giveaway of the white Moto X Eric Schmidt used, signed by him personally.

          • Project Mayhem

            I agree with the ‘Guest’. It’s nice to be active in the discussion but you’re just overdoing it now. It has nothing to do with you guessing the price.

          • Godzilla

            Fair enough, retire from this thread for the evening I shall.

          • DainLaguna

            i think he meant to respond to verizon, in which case i agree. the novelty has worn off.

          • Guest

            Gilipollas! Look at my other comment below. I was referring to Godzilla, but Verizon has gotten way too annoying too.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Did you just write $439? lol I mean that’s a pretty random number. Either way I’ll say if there’s a 32GB it’ll be atleast 60-70 more than the 16GB.

      • GJB

        Yep, but I based that on the Nexus 7 pricing. $229 for 16 GB, $269 for 32 GB. $40 extra for the additional 16 GB of storage.

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          True but the rape always seems to come with phones. I think the N7 is a unique situation when it comes to pricing.

    • Destroythanet

      I don’t remember the last time a new phone was released and only had a $40 difference between the 16 and 32GB versions. Has this happened?

      • Chris Hannan

        That person must be thinking of the Nexus 7’s pricing.

        • Destroythanet

          Oh ok. I’d be a bit surprised if they’re able to pull that off with a phone, but it would definitely be nice.

    • Butters619

      As much as I secretly hope for $300/$350 pricing, I know it’s just not going to happen. $400/$450 sounds right. Not Nexus cheap, but way under standard flagship pricing.

      • Justin Barrett

        Sounds about right.

  • Bradley Albert Nemitz

    Please be a cheap, off-contract, decent upgrade for my gnex.

  • Godzilla

    Droid Life show tomorrow night?

    • Traveling back to PDX. Talking about doing an afternoon show on Friday, maybe.

      • Godzilla

        sweet

        • Lots to talk about, that’s for sure. But next week will be messed up again, because we’re traveling for the LG G2 event. We’ll do what we can to sneak in a show or two. 🙂

  • Michael swaim

    I hope it’s available for all carriers unlocked for low price of $300 or less come if so I will buy one just to put in my Verizon line so I can have a decent Motorola device.

  • Charles Hobbs

    $299 or GTFO.

    • Godzilla

      What if it’s $299.99 ?

      • Seth Merritt

        Then TFO he G

      • Guest

        GTFO.

    • Veriz0n

      Hope you took into consideration the tax because I would hate to see you skip on it if it was a few bucks over 299.

      • Charles Hobbs

        Well of course, but if it’s $400+ then I think I’ll hold out and save for a nexus 5 or LG G2, because in the end most of us are paying full price to hold on to our unlimited data on Verizon…

  • Armorthane

    $500+ off contract and while the processor is nice I still say it’s gonna be a bit laggy with the thing loaded down with apps and stuff. I do hope I’m totally wrong on both as I want this phone at a cheap price to keep my unlimited data.

  • Khammy

    Personally I’m just glad to see as much posting on the Moto X as was done for a certain Samsung phone months ago. I think this new Moto X will be a winner… regardless of the nay saying spec whores.

    • Godzilla

      Maybe, I personally believe moto still has a lot to prove. Tomorrow is the day they can start offering such proof.

  • SmokeNMirrors

    If it’s over $400 off contract it’s a bust. If it’s under $300 it’ll be revolutionary.
    Prediction: bust… : /

    • Trevor

      300.01-399.99 = twilight zone?

      • SmokeNMirrors

        Indeed, the range of wait for the G2/Nexus5. I’d rather have a Moto build.

        • Trevor

          I miss using a Moto phone.

    • Veriz0n

      It’ll probably only be over 400 if you order a custom version. Otherwise, the stock colors may have a reasonable off contract price.

  • Godzilla

    Hidden photon torpedo tube.

    • Impressive. That’s why they went nano SIM.

      • Godzilla

        indeed. They were trying to make an isolinear chip slot but nope.

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Yo Kellen why are we still using this old picture and not the press renders? . . .

        Ahhhhh forget it tomorrow we’ll have FRESH PICS! AND VIDEO!

        • Godzilla

          The poor man has a death star microphone he talks into, leave him alone, LOL

        • Pretty picture. Renders look like cartoons. 😛

  • monkey082506

    Tomorrow will be great. I’ll finally be able to stop wondering and get some sleep at night!

    • Jackson

      After tonight that is

      • monkey082506

        Yea…tonight’s going to suck

    • Godzilla

      Horrible reason not to sleep at night, does this phone have a vagina or something?

  • Jackson

    Its also possible it’ll be $200 and then you can purchase attachable legs and arms and it then becomes a very small buttler/pet.

    • Purrr.

      • Jackson

        Who ever pulls that off will have my money lol

      • Godzilla

        or buzzzzzzzzzzz

  • calum wilper

    i just hope i’m surprised, it’s been forever since we didn’t know something. Not that that’s a bad thing, and is most certainly thanks to the droid-life folks being very good at what they do.

    • I just have a feeling there will be surprises of some kind. I just can’t imagine that Moto would let Verizon show everything off with the new DROID brand a week before they planned to unveil the Moto X.

      • monkey082506

        I really hope you’re right.

      • calum wilper

        i really hope so, it looks like an awesome device and it seems to be the only one besides the nexus line that has on screen keys which, after having a galaxy nexus i really don’t want to go back to hardware keys as nit picky as that sounds.

      • Jackson

        True they must have at least one thing if not a couple up their sleeves.

      • Brendan Owens

        A Motorola representative told a reporter at the DROID event that we would know the difference between the Moto X and the new DROIDS within two minutes of the Moto X press event. Anyone else ready for a big surprise?

      • DJ SPY

        The surprise will be the price.

  • allan

    Bleh

  • Jackson

    I’m pretty sure it’ll cook breakfast especially bacon

    • Joseph Pojunis

      Breakfast with Sundar ROUND 2!

  • MichaelFranz

    I hope its the device we all hope it is going to be. Revolutionary and game changing for future devices to learn from

    • Nexjersey

      I hope so too, although I don’t intend on buy it. I hope to wait for the “hero” device thats suppose to come later. But I’m hoping for a strong showing, a Motorola comeback and Google showing other manufacturers how android should be done. Also it would set the bar that much higher for the “hero” device

  • Jimeong Lee

    Hidden LED light in the bezel!

    • Pssh. Active Notifications are so sick.
