  • James_75

    No wireless charging?

  • Frettfreak

    You know I really hoped for more. It’s not gonna be my next phone but has some cool features. But really it’s just not gonna cut the mustard. Sorry moto, maybe next time

  • Anonymous

    I can’t believe I bought into the hype.
    Google dropped the ball on this one.

  • roiji

    That’s heavy, literally.

  • bassman418

    Motorola finally has made something to compare the the Galaxy Nexus………
    2 years too late, lmao
    talk about being behind. this phone would of been worth a look 2 years ago.
    still Loving my Note 2.

  • Tino Wallace

    Hmm, still happy with my S3….I’ve been let down by moto far too many times to fall for this one. Nice phone, but not top of the food chain.

  • Godzilla

    A lot of blog writers and even people in these comments have been saying this thing will suck for a long time. Looks like they are right.

  • ChuckDz3

    qi wireless charging? anyone know?

    • James_75

      Other reviews on other sites say yes. Tim doesn’t mention it here though.


    cellular and wifi radios?

    Thank you, GoogMoto, for pricing it so ridiculously high that I won’t need to consider paying early termination fee to hop on this. Now I can wait for Nexus 5 or whatever comes along this fall.

  • Justtyn Hutcheson

    For anyone worried about the specs:


    TL;DR: the GPU performance is slightly better than the S4/One, the CPU scores are lower (no surprise), but, somehow, the Java test scores are higher in every benchmark.

    So, I’m going to go ahead and say it: the Moto X IS a flagship device. Not in the traditional Android sense of ZOMGPOWER, but in the iPhone “I want my phone to do what I want when I want and move on” sense. Seriously, those java benchmarks are INCREDIBLE, no matter what is on paper.

    Personally, I love watching all the head-scratching being done by the Android bloggers over the fact that the only thing they can find to complain about is the fact that on paper it isn’t as

    • Defenestratus

      The number one hardware spec, the screen is “average” according to all the tech sites. I don’t want an “average” screen since its the most important aspect of a phone.

      • thislandisyourland

        It’s not the pixel density though, I think they just don’t like AMOLED.

  • Will Rehse

    This phone screams BIONIC!! Remember how it came out around 6 months before the Gnex… then it was scrap. I finagled my way into a gnex for free, but this thing is kinda a joke.

  • shecalledmejay

    What is stopping a 3rd part company from making custom back plates? I’m thinking it was supposed to be the whole phone not just the back and buttons. like the front plate to

    • James_75

      I don’t think the back plate comes off once manufactured.

  • Brandon Golway

    The Moto X has wood…. haha

  • trwb

    Basically the same specs as my GS3?

  • chris420o

    wtf are these on contract prices?! what happened to nexus pricing!@@!%%

  • chris420o

    wow…that looks pretty friggin cool

  • shecalledmejay

    Is it possible to hack and unlock a moto Boot-loader? has it been done before?

    • trwb

      No never. Military grade encryption on Motos. May be different under Google ownership.

  • test1923

    Weight – 320 grams is wrong, the website http://www.motorola.com/us/consumers/Moto-X/moto-x,en_US,pg.html is saying 130 gram

  • notechnomo

    show me the G2!

  • RoadsterHD1

    Same as the Droid Maxx and Ultra just pocket size. Price will still be up there. Especially with the customizations offer. Someone has to pay for that. For that kind of money I’m going with the Droid-MAXX cause of the bigger screen, and battery. Looks like my Bionic will become my media device at home.

  • Battery Life wins this war for me….bye bye Galaxy

  • Geekdad

    So what’s better, 32gb Moto X or the Ultra Maxx? THey are pretty much the same phone except for the Ultra’s bigger battery.

    • droidrazredge

      hahah we both asked the same question at the same time!

    • RedXander

      Was there any mention of wireless charging on the X?

  • droidrazredge

    Now that we know the official price of the Moto x why not just pay 50$ more so you can get the Droid Ultra Maxx ? What’s the point of getting the Moto X over the Droid Ultra Maxx now, especially when you can get a bigger battery, when it has the same software ?

    • Justin Larmay

      I may just get the ultra and see how battery life is then maybe switch up to the maxx. I see no point really in getting the moto x unless you really dig on screen keys. Plus you get the droid command center with the droids! Who wouldn’t want that?

      • droidrazredge

        Agreed! I have a Droid Razr Maxx (OG) I like when I get email notifications and it goes DROID. I also like the boot animation of my Razr Maxx. I wonder what the boot animation is on the new maxx. If the 48 hour battery life is true then I’m going to use the secondary account upgrade and purchase the phone for 200$. I don’t really care about on screen keys to be honest. I prefer capacitive keys in case the software glitches out so I’m not totally screwed.

        • Marikel

          Hardware buttons are going to behave the same way when the phone freezes. Has your RAZR never frozen before? Happens to me all the time. My RAZR froze on me several times in the past couple months while I was at school and I had to restart it to get it to respond again.

    • RedXander

      I didn’t see any mention of inductive charging on the X… might be something else the Ultra has over the X.

      • James_75

        All the other reviews on other sites indicate wireless charging. Tim left it off the specs list here for some reason.

        • RedXander

          Kellen confirmed no wireless charging on the MOTO X on another thread.

          • James_75

            Ah, ok… thanks.

  • Ron_Swanson

    Ah…..I got it. Motorola still thinks it is the year 2012. NAILED IT!

  • Charlie R.

    It also looks like there is no wireless charging in this phone, but there is in the new Droids.
