    Default The next Moto X

    Just out of curiosity I thought I would inquire about what everyone would like to see from the next Moto X.

    I personally would like the display to be increased to 5 inches (720p resolution would be fine with me), I would like them to use the snapdragon 801 as a base for a variant of their custom "mobile computing system, and an improved 13 mp camera. As far as the software goes I want moto to stick with vanilla Android. Their apps can obviously be updated through the play store, but the only thing I would like to see there is the ability to add the date to active display.

    NOOOO! The best thing about the Moto X is its handy size. No bigger please.

    Not a fan of big phones but a tad a bigger would be good.
    No need for greater megapixels, just a better camera.
    While I get through an entire day for the most part with the battery, but if I'm using GPS it eats up pretty quick so a bigger battery would work.

    But I do love the moto x the way it is but since the topic was brought up I thought I'd slap my thoughts up.

    Get a nexus 5 and throw the dynamicnotifications app on it?

    I agree with the above poster. The size is one of the features. Supposedly they did studies to optimize in hand feel.

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/7235/moto-x-review

    .....The long story is that the Moto X design allegedly reflects Googles data-driven approach to just about everything. Googles guidance to Motorola on the Moto X was something along the lines of - go get a statistical sampling for device size and shape, do a user study and gather feedback, and then build the phone that optimizes for positive feedback....

    After going back and forth between the iPhone and Moto x the 5 inch nexus feels a little clumsy.

    I agree with both of those statements. I love the Moto X the way out is too, and the small size is great. I even found that coming from my sgs4 I prefer the smaller feel of the phone. However, Motorola was able to make the Moto X the smallest 4.7 inch phone, and maybe 4.9 inches can make for a phone that's not much bigger.

    I'm totally satisfied with the screen, though a little darker option would be nice and much brighter in direct sunlight would be, too. The form factor, IMHO, is perfect. I still love the design and feel of the phone. The software additions to stock Android are very value-added to me. The battery is very good but everyone always wants even more, right? But to me, the camera is....adequate. It doesn't suck, but it would be nice to have at least that one thing that is a knock-out "gotta have" feature to the phone.

    So there really isn't much I would change. Just an improved camera.

    While the X is by far the best device I've ever used, I think they could make a few tweaks. I'd like a slightly larger display to compensate for the on screen buttons, and they could probably fit a 5" screen into a form factor not much larger than the current X. And of course a better camera is a must. But what I'm really crossing my fingers for is a T-Mobile variant with Wi-Fi Calling. I have to use a cel-fi booster in my office to get a signal, but it would be nice to not have to do that.

    Spec bumps and a better camera is all I could really ask for. Size and feel are perfect. Wireless charging would be nice, too... maybe as an option for certain custom backs as I could see it requiring a little more space.

    Would QI charging affect the curvature of the back of the phone?

    I'm happy with screen size, but a little more would be fine.

    The biggest thing would be a kick *** camera. Something that would raise the bar on phone cameras.

    Size and battery life were two factors that attracted me to the Moto X and what sets it apart from other flagship phones, IMO. I don't think a larger screen or throwing the newest, fastest hardware at the phone works towards those design goals.

    I'd rather see continued evolution and refinement of the phone as a tightly integrated system of appropriate hardware and well-engineered software. In other words, stick to the idea that user experience trumps a laundry list of specs every day of the week.

    The only specific improvement that I would like to see would be better low-light camera performance.

    Unspecified additions ("unspecified" because I'm not a design or engineering genius) would be any new and *useful* features that the Motorola team can add to mix. Moto Assist, Moto Connect, Active Notifications and the always-listening Touchless Control are brilliant and work as advertised. Features that are elegant and simple in contrast to other manufacturers that sport more flashy and gimmicky features that are usually not as handy for everyday use.

    I expect it will have an updated X8 processor based off of last year's processors, probably a version of the snapdragon 800 and a newer graphics processor. Maybe called the X10 if it get's the 2 extra cores. This is assuming they can integrate it all like they did before and maintain low power consumption, which I think they should be able to.

    Probably. The place where the coil goes might have to be flat. Goodbye, dimple. (Not that I would mourn it.)

    As discussed in the other threads, most here feel the phone needs to stay about the same size. They could fit a 5" screen on the same form factor.

    In regards to the camera, more megapixels isn't the answer. Larger sensor, larger pixels and better optics are needed. If they want to get fancy they could maybe add a second sensor with a different f-stop. Duel LED flash and possibly zenon flash as well.

    If they move to a SD800 or above, I don't know if they would need "x8" since the newer Snapdragons have the features of the "x8" custom cores built in. Given its release timeline, I would like to see an 805, which should be more power efficient and tuned then the 800 or 801.

    Larger battery and, if they move to a larger screen 1080 resolution.

    Personally, I would love to have voice print verification, to allow you to use the phone in locked mode in combination with the always listening feature.

    Ino I completely free with you and everyone else I read the specs on every other new android device to me lately and with that being said, I love the moto x curly just like everyone else does screen size is very possible holiday inn 1 hand easy to use a smooth you need a big quad core c_p_u to have a good enjoyable smooth experience think the moto x teaches all of us that as far the batteries concerned, I never usage, I sing rocket a full day of juice now my rule of thumb is whenever I used google maps g_p_s in my car so is in the car charger
