The Moto X arrived exactly a year (2013) after in Sep 2014 than its predecessor with customizable looks, and had a sleek body, proudly wearing the “Made in USA” label. The new flagship model of the Motorola Company is likely one of the last Motorola products developed during Google’s reign of the company – because this American brand is bound to soon become part of Lenovo.
Design and build quality
The new Moto X had got the exact same design as its predecessor, which was one of the better-looking devices of the last year. Especially the metal frame and the genuine leather available with wood choices, the 2014 model take the familiar appearance to new luxury levels. It is truly impressive that the combination of metal and natural materials can do nice changes in the appearance of a phone.
Another major point in the design of the Moto X is the Moto Maker customization suite. This allows users to literally have their smartphone their own way.
The new Motorola Moto X powered with Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8974-AC with 2.5GHz quad-core CPU. The GPU is Adreno 330, clocked at 578MHz. The device’s silicon is the default setup for most Android smartphone flagships of the year 2014 and has already proven to be a solid performer.
The new Moto X features a 13MP f/2.25camera with dual-LED flash. The simple hand gesture can be used to activate the camera. Dubbed Quick Capture, the feature works by twisting your wrist twice when holding the device.
This year’s model offering packs a 2,300mAh unit as opposed to the 2,200mAh solution in the 2013 model.
