Re: Any good clues on next Motorola high-end after the X?
I always thought, and maybe it’s my interpretation, that the Moto X was making features the priority while having a processor that could run it as fast as a sammy. And you’re right, I do find nudging my phone or just taking my phone out of my pocket better than knocking on it, and they can do knock knock with a Sammy phone but Sammy can’t run always listening and active notifications all day. The X’s features, which I saw as a priority for them (and which are what X owners like about it) isn’t suited for a phone that is geared for being the fastest at running 3D games and watching movies or whatever it is that these beast phones are for (I honestly have no idea what they’re for). With Sammy, et al., and their eye scrolling, etc, you’re talking about a beast phone first with features that it can run without compromising the fastest processor off the assembly line, but 2 of the main features that the X has mean that the most power hungry beast specs you can find, doesn’t work. That’s what they were trying to explain with their X8. People could not understand why it has “dual” instead of “quad”, X8 isn’t a selling point the way “bigger brighter screen” is it’s an explanation. Trying to explain why it’s not 4 cores beast processor, it’s cores that work to run their features and it’s not just 2. And we all know what sams (and the rest of the bigger and more is better beasts) priorities are: as much hardware as you can put on a phone. They run a 5” lcd screen, and run a power hungry processor - always listening and notifications breathing all the time mean you make a choice: specs for features, or specs for brightness with fractions of a second faster than the next guy. or do both and have miserable battery life. To do the beast model plus our newest features of the day means the 5” LCD screen and as many cores you can put on one chip take priority over everything else, whereas everything about the X has been features are the priority. And I could be wrong. The beast phone crowd has a priority, more cores, bigger brighter screen, and the phone with the most hardware wins and in order to have the most it must take priority. Yes, a good model for success is 4 is greater than 2 and look at this nifty thing. I just don't see how that was any part of moto was doing.
