  • Great phone until it falls from a mere 3 feet height
    Saurabh Chhabra (May 7, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    We usually land up buying a Maruti not just for the product but for its after sale service. I picked up a Moto X in the first week of April 2014. Accidentally ended up dropping my phone only yesterday, the good part is, only the gorilla glass shattered and the phone is responding to my touch and display is not at all distorted. I called up the Motorola consumer care which btw is very very bad. They did not know the price of the screen of Moto X and headed to the Motorola authorized customer care and they say that the price to replace your damages is Rs.10,000 INR odd because we don't change the gorilla glass alone and this will take upto 10 days coz we don't have the spare ready and your phone would be sent to Noida. (current location Udaipur) Since, the glass is clung to the LCD display the entire assembly will have to be replaced and even then, he was not sure about the price. To cross check, I called up another motorola authorized customer service station and they said, it will be replaced for Rs. 12,500/- that is half the phones price. I feel stupid because I would also have to pay for something which is functioning perfectly well along with the gorilla glass and buy a great some of money. So, my opinion, get a phone insurance and get a bumper cover or whatever it is you require for your phone to stay intact coz Motorola will hardly entertain after sales calls even if you are willing to pay a wholesome amount.

  • Read this before choosing Moto X colors
    Deven Goratela (May 2, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    By now everybody would have already know about the hardware and software specs of this phone. This is the best phone for user experience on android. The only problem is that you cannot go just by specs, you have to experience it to believe it. Everybody knows about its unique features like 1) Active display 2) Touchless control 3) Flick wrist to launch Camera 4) Stock Android (Kitkat) 5) Motorola X8 computing system But I just wanted to touch up on one thing which I came to know by experience only. It is about choosing color of the back cover. The dark colored back covers like Black and Royal Blue has soft rubbery feel, so has better grip and won't slip easily. While the rest of the colors have smooth feel back cover which might be slippery. I am sure this would have been intentional since the dark soft touch back cover attracts dust and dirt and are not suitable for light color as it will get dirty very soon. All back cover are of single piece plastic and blends well with the front, while the wood version are made of 2 pieces, first is the plastic frame and then second the wood itself. So, when you hold it you might feel that slight gap in between the wood and plastic frame. Above points might not matter a lot if you are planning to buy a case. But I dont prefer using case and I have gone for Royal Blue version. And I dont think you need a case. Its a kind of phone which makes you feel good after using it rather than before using it which is the case with other spec heavy phones. And it is priced perfectly too. This is the best phone in this range, so if its within your budget, "Buy it to Experience it and say Hello to Moto".

  • Best Android Phone with innovative Features
    Sanjay Pandhare (May 2, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Moto X is the iconic gadget released with a unique Innovation Touch-less Controls. today we will find nos of phones in the competition with overdose of Hardware specifications but as part of Legacy of Motorola and its continues innovations Moto X is way ahead of all phones. Built design and Pure Stock Android Experience is very rich and we can expect a timely new updates Performance - on paper its only Dual Core Processor but have Dedicated Co-processor along side with 2GB RAM and Only Device has it. Display- Display resolution is Best with 4.7 Inch AMOLED touch screen in HD also have Active Display Feature. In my concern Best thing about this Phone the Price is really really most competitive with all the other competitions in the market.

  • Moto X Fervently rumored, discussed, hyped Smartphone 2014.
    Shantanu Trivedi (May 2, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    MOTO X is launched and though being hyped the phone earns respect among users. Let's discuss in short about Moto X With its curvy, swoopy looks Moto X has a thoughtful design both inside and out and boasts of Power and capable enough to charm one. Backed by a great software but is let down by its endurance and camera. Likes-Great design, Feel, Look, excellent performance, Near Stock Android Experience and useful software enhancements. dislike - poor battery life, weak camera, no expandable storage and poor charging. Moto X has 4. 7 inch Amoled display with 312ppi which is pretty good as compared to phones such as Grand2 in thos category. The display is bright and clear and icons look Good with Android kitkat running In the device it make d viewing experience even better. Moto X sports 2gb RAM capable of perfoming tasks at ease.its has a 1.7Ghz dual core snapdragon s4 processor which is a beast!!! the phone performs multiple tasks with ease. The looks absolutely stunning with the different back panels available especially with d rose wood back case. The phone is stylish and Premium looking. The camera is highly disappointing factor of the phone, it sports a 10megapixel Autofocus camera with Led flash but it disappoints. the pictures quality is low and in low light the quality doesn't seem right. Its also haw a 2mp front facing camera. The call quality, downloading and uploading speed is very good. Android kitkat makes the whole experience a charming one. It deserves 4 out of 5, one point taken away because of camera. i would recommend people who want a stylish, reliable, fast and Phone with a big screen go for Moto X!!!

  • Why Or Why Not MOTO X!!
    Anshuman Pandey (May 1, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Many customers has experienced the engineering of Moto G which was recently launched in India and got great response.So, its time for Motorola to launch a new device here in India and yes its non other than Moto X, They have successfully launched Moto G recently which got tremendous response from Indian customers, excited from this Motorola?s new offering will be Motorola Moto X. The Price of this device is Rs 23999/- For other plastic other than the wood back version while the wood back version will cost you Rs 25999/-. Only 16 GB variant will be made available of the Indian Market. Moto G Featured 4.5 Inch HD Screen with Gorrila Glass III, 1.2 Ghz Quad Core Processor,5 MP Camera with flash,1.2 MP Front facing camera,1 GB RAM,8 and 16 GB Offering. Now, you can ask whats new in Moto x, Our answer will be there is nothing new in Moto X and the biggest drawback in Moto X is that it has 1.7 Ghz Dual core processor, despite its just the marketing tactics which has used by Flipkart and Motorola in order to create a hype with Moto G. Moto X specification is rather less than Moto G in which the pricing point of Moto X will be a differentiating factor for Motorola and Flipkart since many other brands are already offering same specification products at comparatively lower price. Now, Coming to the specification of Moto X, it features 4.7 Inch AMOLED touch screen in HD , scratch resistant glass(Though Not Gorilla Glass) ,2 GB RAM, Adreno 320 GPU , Super clear 10 MP Camera,will be available in 16 & 32 GB Options. The best part is that Flipkart will be lauching this device on 21st march and that too offering it with wooden back Panel the other thing to look for Moto X is at what price point Motorola will be offering this device to the customers. Product Features 1.7 Ghz Dual Core Processor Adreno 320 GPU 10 MP Super Clear Camera(60 FPS) With Flash And 2 MP Front Camera 2 GB RAM 4.7 Inch AMOLED Screen 2200 mAh Battery Pros: Stylish Wooden Back Cover 10 MP Super Clear Camera AMOLED Screen 4.7 Inch 2 GB RAM Cons: Dual Core Processor

  • Moto X - The robostic
    Balu Araknus (Dec 16, 2018) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    I had my Moto X on July 9,2014. That was the time when entire India was looking in to the digital world. I made a bold decision to pay 24k for Moto X. It seemed like that was a foolish one to my friends. But now every friend of mine has changed atleast 3 mobiles in these 4.5 years. But still My Moto has no problems what so ever. Just go and verify the Moto X users and ask. I m sure you ll be wondered with their sharings. My phone is 4.5 years old Still working faster as it was at beginning. Thanks MOTO X

  • Moto X User Review
    Kashif Hussain (Jun 1, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    By Kashif HUssain The moto x offers a great deal in the mid-range section. The phone is packed with great specs and package. Getting a grip on this phone is pretty simple. The back of the phone is made of rubber. It also sports a small dimple flashing the Motorola logo. The screen is of amoled which will come in handy for the active display of this phone. The phone supports 720p display with 312ppi. The viewing angles are great and display is also crisp. The active display on this phone is of great functionality. It gives you updates about the notifications when the screen is of. You pick up the phone and the notification pops out, showing you the information related. Since the screen is amoled, this notification does not drain your battery. Coming to the performance the phone has the so called moto x8 computing system. It has certain cores dedicated to certain functions only. It has 2cores of 1.7ghz snapdragon s4 processor, 4cores of ardeno 330 for graphics, 1 for contextual computing and the last for natural language processing. So basically it has 8 cores. All dedicated to perform certain function which makes the phone run even smooth. The best part about moto x is that your phone listens to you and answers back. You can talk to your phone even if the screen is of. the phone has 3 microphones for noise cancellation. Moving on to the camera it is not the best you would expect on this phone. It turns all your hope down. The camera sensor is 10mp but the images produced are no way clear. It produces dull, over saturated images with a slight blur sometimes. The image is good but not as luscious like a good 10 mp camera. overall the phone does good on performance as well as battery. It almost runs for about almost a day, which is the best battery pack with only 2200mah. Overall the phone is a great package for this price range.

  • Fast, Beautiful and Solid.
    Aayush Agarwal (May 31, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    The Motorola Moto X is an excellent Android smartphone. It's just the right size and it actually listens to you. Combine the software features with long battery life and a design that fits perfectly in hand and the Moto X is a very smart choice. The allrounder we were looking for...
