Moto X the Beginning of the Customization Craze

The Motorola Moto X was announced this past week amidst a whole lot of hoopla. The phone had been eagerly anticipated and leaked with the right information at the right times to create a nice little buzz. The phone itself is a bit disappointing in comparison to the other stuff thatís out at the minute such as the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. Yet, Motorola wasnít really going for a high performance flagship style phone. They were going for a more medium style handset with the hopes of getting it in a whole lot of peopleís hands.
When you look at the specs of the Moto X, itís a yawner that looks about a year behind itís time. It has a dual core processor and a 720p display. Both things that the top phones trump with quad core and 1080p being perhaps the ďstandardĒ for top of the line phones right now. The interesting thing is that the pricing that Motorola announced is in line with a top of the line performance phone, $199 on contract. That was perhaps the most shocking part about the announcement. This phone screams $99.99. There is no way that with these specs you can have this phone at the same price as the One and S4, itís just ludicrous. Why would anyone buy a Moto X?

Voice control from across the room might be cool. It might also be a useless gimmick. Customizing the color combo is nice. The phone is one of the best I've ever held from an ergonomic perspective. Of course none of that trumps actual capabilities. The camera is mediocre at best, but there are high hopes that a firmware update will address camera performance.

Looks like Moto is taking a page out of Apple's playbook, choosing form over function (to some degree). The SGS4 is perhaps the most technologically advanced Android phone available. But I detest the feel and appearance. There is a balance somewhere between form and function. Perhaps the Moto X goes too far on the form side over function. The SGS4 goes the other way (imho). But what do I know? I'm using a Nokia Lumia and swapping between a BlackBerry Q10.

I'd say the X is right up there with the One for the best balance that we've seen so far from Android devices. The One is hands down the most beautiful Android phone ever, and I quite like the X as well. It's not as pretty, but it feels better in the hand. As far as function, since it runs Android, it has most things I need. Touchwiz is full of random junk that is super gimmicky and doesn't even work right. Plus, since it's so bloated, it lags, so I'd say Samsung isn't even close to being top in function. I can't really think of any overly gimmicky features on the One (that Zoey thing is kind of stupid, if you ask me). Some of the stuff could use a little work, but it's stuff that's useful. Pretty functional, IMO. The X only has a couple of features over stock Android. I'm not really sold on the always-on voice commands or the camera gesture, but everybody raves about the active notifications.

The Moto X won't even touch the LG G2 Note3 and the Nexus5 will be a much better device as well...
LG is definitely a manufacturer to watch this year !
