Re: Moto X: hairline gap in bezel where front and back halves meet in bamboo wood back phone?
I received my replacement bamboo Moto X yesterday, it too has a small gap. It's in the same corner where the other one had a problem, although it's not nearly as bad as the first phone. Do I gamble again and see if the third phone is better yet.... I might just keep this one, it is notably better than the first. I'm guessing the wood back phones have some manufacturing design issues.
On a side note, I think where the Moto X is lagging compared to the other Android manufacturers is their premium build look and feel. I was in the AT&T store today and most of the other phones had a real high-end feel to them, the plain black Moto X there just seemed so-so compared to the flagship phones LG, HTC, and Samsung. Of course all these other phones had considerable metal trim which I think adds a premium look and feel to a device; I suspect it is a design decision of Motorola's to avoid metal, due to the added RF complexity and likely reduced radio performance.
