So we've been seeing Motorola's Lazy Phone advertisiments they churn out, some Moto Maker ones from AT&T, and Motorolas even hosted, sponsered events like Tommorrow World, fashion shows, ect.
What would you like to see advertised about the Moto X? Should we empansize on the ease of use? A more business approach that Apple and Samsung have been trying to get the attention of? Show that its the perfect play phone for everyone (the smaller one hand size with a big screen? Would you like to see it gain more popularity amongst the Galaxies, the One, the G2? We know its a good device, but people are still iffy on the device and Motorola who's never been that popular in the consumer phone market. Business wise I've seen quite a few Motorolas though.

from the problems weve been experiencing, they should prolly cut advertising until these issues have been addressed. its only going to make the product look worse when its not even working as advertised. surfing the web and texting is the only thing that truly works.
issues im talking about:
voice calls being cut with every other word.
google voice not "play(ing) miguel"

Its going to take time to make moto x (brand) famous and increase public awareness, good thing is the product they put out is good and has some unique things that It can offer.This is only first generation it will take couple of generation of moto x's with compelling and innovative feature sets to become as famous as galaxy series or iphone. For now Moto x will be no way near the sales numbers of iphone or galaxy series even nexus for that matter ..no matter how much advertising moto does ..

Not everyone is experiencing voice calling issue (its more on verzion) ..playing song through google now always works for me, works on my wifes X too
Also the fix for voice cutting issue is rolling out ..ATT should get it in one week and expect verizon in couple of weeks ..

Yes I know its gonna take a generation or two. But I feel like the Moto X is similar to the Wii U.
A great device, that works great, and once you use some of the features its hard to go back to the other ways. But due to the companies past reception, the devices are getting kinda hated on by non-users. I know Motorola still needs a boost in the support service department. Do you think Motorola can get turned around?
I think they should emphansize on the America part, there is a demand for the products, espcially in the older generation, move away from iphones. :P

im not looking towards the update to fix the voice commands (its honestly a hit and miss, majority with good hits, after playing with it nonstop and seeing what it can/cant do, and trust me i kept it very basic and generic) my main issue is the voice cutting out which is a huge damper because its to the point where people just dont listen to me anymore bc they cant understand anything im saying. it does seem that this issue is mostly with verizon customers, but everyone else with other carriers are complaining just as much.
its great to advertise the features the phone is completely capable of doing, but its not so great when no one can hear you on the other end of the call. it just turns the phone into a handheld tablet.

I got this from the Moto X changelog from the Motorola website:
Enhanced Touchless Control Increased accuracy and responsiveness when using Touchless Control, and added easier training of the “OK Google Now” trigger
I don't know if the update fixed it for me but everytime I tried the Touchless Controls to play music pre-update it would load up a song but it wouldn't start automagically like in the commercial... Now it does!

They should do a commercial showing how useful the voice commands are when you need to keep both hands on the wheel while driving a car, but then there's the liability
The key feature of the phone is the ease of using it without touching it. As the iPhone showed us a world with out a stylist, Motorola should focus on a world fee of being a slave to your phone.
Maybe they should get captain Picard or Scotty out use it. Now that's freaking brilliant!

I have a att moto x that I have been using everyday for the past week as my daily driver. I have zero issues. Touchless control as well as active notifications are awesome. I would have to say it's one of the best android experiences I have ever had. The Moto X is a fantastic device and deserves to play with the big boys. The level of software optimization surpasses that of the top three IMO. Things just do not lag. Also get compliments on call quality when I am using speaker the other party can barley tell the difference. Frankly I did not expect to touchless control much however it has come in handy a couple times this week. Also the quick access camera feature came in handy the other day while driving. I hope this phone has a successful future. Last figure I heard was they were shipping around 100k a week from the factory. Don't quote me on that as it may have been the motomaker figures they were referring to.
