Moto X after one year - my thoughts
With the impending release of Moto X+1, price drops and now motorola offering free wooden back for moto x until august 21st - I thought i'd share my likes/dislikes about the phone after using it for a year.
Battery life - probably my favorite part about this phone
Android performance - really smooth switching between apps, opening/closing, menus etc. Rarely do i experience major / long slowdowns, just the occasional one which is pretty good for a 1 year phone.
Features - active notifications is great. motorola connect is really handy for me especially at work since i am at the desk. touchless controls is nice to use in the car. wrist flick for camera is awesome.
Build quality feels pretty solid still, thin sleek...
CAMERA - washed up images, colors are so dull ...by far the worst part of the phone...please fix in the Moto X+1!!
touchless controls is fickle - not really a moto X problem but more of a google now issue - doesn't always do what you want to do or takes a couple tries to activate.
Personal / Neutral Issues:
Screen Size I like this 4.7" screen. It is great for single handed use. I actualyl found my S3 to be a tad too long for my thumb to reach the notification bar..but this is a personal preference.
Overall I think this is a really solid phone and probably my favorite phone AFTER a full year of use. I know I have had too many phones where the battery starts draining or performance just slowed to a crawl after a year and just having that NOT happen ...gives the moto X a big thumbs up in my book.

Anyways, hope that helps you make a decision and let me know if you have any questions
