    If you like giant phones, you have any number of good options. If the size of the Moto X phone appeals to you there aren't a ton of high end alternatives in that range

    Seriously. Very few *good* phones in its size category, and even in that category the moto X is probably the best. That category being "not ginormous". (I actually laughed out loud when i saw the size of the Optms G PRO. lol).

    This is what I expected, good for Moto. Contrary to all the negative comments on the "mediocre & outdated" specs, maybe Moto actually knows what they're doing & their approach will prove innovative after all.

    The price their asking is the price you pay for being first in line to own this phone. That is reality and these companies charge big bucks for their phones because they know people will pay. Although the specs of this phone are not top of the line compared to others out there they are very good and Moto is relying on their software and the ability to personalize the phone as the main attraction. As with all phones though if you can tie your hands behind your back for 8 to 12 months and not buy this now you will get it for no more than $100 on contract or $250 off contract. I am still using my Droid Bionic which I bought on contract at launch and it still works great. I am waiting for a phone that is just too good to pass up before I give them my hard earned dollars and I don't think this phone is it.
    If you are patient and keep your eyes peeled , phones do go on sale. I got my Rezound within two weeks of release for $50 on contract. In February, the Verizon Note II was $50 on contract. A few months ago, the DNA was free ln contract and potential $50 money maker as well.

    The s4 was as low as $20 on contract after gc a few months ago.

    The 8x no contract was $225.

    I am sure there were plenty of other deals, I just named a couple.

    So Moto wants us to pay full price for a mid range phone? This device is going to flop so hard , just like the HTC one. No matter how much phil and the gang hypes it up. I wasn't disappointing until I saw the price and when I did , I could stop laughing.
    Lol how was the HTC a flop ????? 80% of the gadget sites say it's the smartphone of the year so far and the people back that up as well. Just cause it didn't spend 100 million dollars on advertising like Samsung and didn't sell 10 million devices doesn't consider it a flop sooooo wtf are u talking about

    Several companies as of late have tried to defend the idea of the low-spec flagship. Nokia Lumias do it. BlackBerry does it. Now Motorola is doing it. The primary difference now is that Motorola has deep advertising pockets and has given away a bunch of phones to friendly/hack journalists to build momentum for the underwhelming X.

    The hack propaganda in smartphones has all the same tricks. Step 1: pick a meaningless contest that your second-rate product can win. The Motorola X proponents have shown it in a pointless browser test with the GS4 and in a single, near-tie game loading duel with the HTC One. This nonsense has to be another brain child from the people who brought us the "Smoked by a Lumia" campaign. Pathetic.

    Step 2 of this hack protocol is to argue that weaknesses are strengths, or at least that they don't matter. Lack Boom Sound? Focus on compact size. Lack a good camera? Focus on voice activation. Lack carrier support? Focus on how much everybody really wants to sign up with AT&T to be the first to buy this turkey.

    I'm sorry, but the graphical and browser benchmarks are actually the most representative sort for real world performance.
    The average user primarily cares about the smoothness of operation, which is why the iPhone has always has so much buzz about it. On mobile devices this is primarily determined by the GPU and rendering ability. The Moto X and it's Adreno 320 and 720p screen is showing that it will most likely be one of the top dogs in this contest.

    Also you rag them on their camera when right now we know very little of its actual quality. So far the only substantial review i have seen of the camera has been from CNet where the person was very impressed with the cameras initial performances.

    I also definitely feel that the Touchless Control and Active Display bring much more to the table than any of the gesture controls Samsung attempted or Blinkfeeds standard news and social aggregation that is Blinkfeed.
    I think that normal users will see the developments that Motorola has achieved as one of the most revolutionary innovations in the mobile industry since a long time.

    It really seems that you are just grasping at straws to be able to hate this device based on a few worthless numbers typed up on a spec sheet.

    Thanks for the reply. First, the only contest that the 720p screen could win in smartphone competition is in the mid grade space, but the X's customers are paying high grade prices. And the X's Adreno 320 doesn't improve its profile at all in comparison to the current top dogs. But why would I want to see rendering on a 720p screen when I could see it on a 1080 one for the same price? Uhm, voice activation?

    And who claims that some game loading duel is the gold standard for device smoothness and real world performance? Get real. This sort of over-extrapolation of one-off events is precisely why this "Smoked by a Lumia" type of advertising works on the vulnerable. This was actually the point of my post, which was apparently missed.

    The camera performance of the X is, in my opinion, the easiest to judge, has several examples online, and is obvious in the truest sense of the word "obvious." Look for yourself. I would agree with those who call the camera performance poor, though I acknowledge those who find it passable. We can likely agree that our standards and expectations clearly differ. As to why CNET journalists would voice positive opinions of products they hope to advertise, I'll take a bet on your common sense to figure that out.

    I consider your last statements about Motorola's "revolutionary innovations" to be overly generous. Voice activation as revolutionary? Have it your way.

    I'm not Anti-MotoX, though. I can have any of these phones and I'm always looking for the very, very best. I was simply hoping for a bit more from Motorola. I'm glad you're pleased with their offering. No hard feelings. Enjoy your X.

    @Eyesopen- There are at least two reasons why the 720p screen was a better choice than the 1080p screens of the other "high-end" devices. For one thing, the 1080p screens have 2.25 times more pixels than the 720p ones. This means that there are 2.25 times more pixels draining energy to produce the same pictures, and 2.25 times more pixels that the GPU must render at speed to prevent lag from being displayed. This means that it is very possible for the 720p screen to provide a much better user experience over the "better screen", when you factor in the fact that the difference between the two displays is virtually impossible to determine by the human eye makes it a big waste for a consumer device.

    I also wasn't trying to refer to the game loading video, although it is interesting. I think the much more telling tests are actually the graphical and browser benchmarks. These all show the Moto X being superior to the other "high-end" phones. I just await actually seeing how this performs in real-life.

    Yes, there had been many images taken by the cameras during the event, but I would prefer to wait for much more scientific and rigorous testing occurs with little variability between the actual shots can provide some concrete evidence about he camera qualities.

    The voice activation is indeed much more revolutionary because this is the first consumer device that has actually been able to implement any technology to allow for it to be truly hands-free without being a complete power drain. This is finally beginning to fulfill all the geek fantasies that so many people have had from watching Star Trek.

    Samsung's gestures allow you to read a webpage with dirty hands, while the Moto X finally allows you to actually use your phone completely hands-free.

    Okay, I understand that you guys are a little more sensitive to conserving battery life and are willing to sacrifice screen resolution in service to this aim. I've got really good battery life on my One (entire day, medium to heavy use), so maybe you could give the 1080p screens a second look. In full disclosure, I do charge over night and I have custom firmware, ROM, kernel, etc. That said, stock HTCs are also performing about the same full day level or even longer, as my custom kernel has more features.

    I haven't heard anyone claim that the image quality of the 720p and 1080p screens are of equivalent quality. You won't likely see pixels in either, but to most, the overall quality of image is noticeably different. But I agree that a 720p screen is not suffering and is more than enough for most cases.

    I'm not that big a camera guy, but I can hold final judgment until more thorough testing is available. We'll see.

    The always-on listening is an interesting feature. Only issues are actual battery drain (fingers crossed) and the creepy factor of misuse or abuse by hackers, advertisers, or the NSA of a phone that's always listening. Luckily, I have little to hide and little creeps me out.

    You guys are improving my understanding of X's appeal. I'm not sold on it yet (the only 720p phone I'm currently considering is the Ubuntu Edge, which I've donated to, if it gets funded), but the more new technologies that come to market, the better for everyone.

    That's why I am really eagerly awaiting rigorous tests on the battery life for the X. I am skeptical that they have actually been able to do anything special with it... In which case it will definitely be making my choice of phones much harder.

    Although, I am very hopeful that the DSPs will actually allow the microphones and sensors to be used without significantly draining the battery.

    The point was that one-off tests, standing alone, are an inadequate basis to support broad claims of device performance.

    But okay, I'll play along. Here's a link to PocketNow's comparison video:

    I direct your attention to, for one example, 6:40 into the video: "the MotoX's color reproduction is pretty obviously inferior to the [HTC] One."

    But I'm not here to bash the X. I just wanted more out of Motorola. Something revolutionary on the scale of the Ubuntu Edge, not just voice activation and an enhanced lock screen. Motorola has had a lot of time to develop this device.

    I wanted to want the X, but so far, I don't.

    That said, the X's supporters on this thread have given me a lot to think about and investigate further. No final judgement had been passed by me.

    See, now you missed my point. It's plenty obvious to me that there is not clear-cut best phone; each one has its advantages and disadvantages. The thing is that each of these "one-off events" (as you call them) provides an admittedly small picture of comparison. But what is the big picture if not the aggregation of many small pictures?

    They're just tests, relatively meaningless exercises in comparison until they are provided in some sort of context -- the context being your life and your usage and your needs.

    I am by no means a Moto X supporter, just like I don't support the HTC One nor the Samsung GS4. The difference, however, is that I've actually used the One and GS4, whereas the Moto X is simply a device that interests me. I have my reservations, but unlike others here I'm not passing judgement until I have the phone in my hands. I don't need spec sheets and "tech comparisons" to justify any convenient fantasy I may have adopted due to bias and ignorance.

    I know you posted that video to showcase the HTC One having a better camera, but I find the really amazing part of that video comes at 8:50.

    They state that the Boomsound from the HTC One doesn't blow the Moto X out of the water like all the other phones. They talk about how clear the Moto X sounds while being louder than the HTC One. Granted, this is with a bit less of a dynamic sound as they say but most people would have expected more difference, which seems to reduce the benefits of the HTC One sadly.

    I am eager to verify the sound quality, not just the loudness, that the X's rear speaker can produce when compared to the HTC One's capabilities.

    Remember, I just want the best. The only reason I have an HTC One is because I haven't found a better smartphone yet. The reason I donated/bought the Ubuntu Edge is because I believe that it could be a better solution, if it gets made.

    If the X comes to market and Wows me in person, I'll buy it on the spot, no doubt about it.

    I'm no fan boy of the One; I'm an opportunist. I buy the best for my use situation. Period. The HTC One is the best phone I've seen so far, though. I do dig it, but once a better phone is available, the HTC One's days are numbered.

    um, those aren't "reservations", those are judgements.

    Anyway, for many compact *is* a huge strength/benefit. For many the Always Ready *is* a strength. both of these are strengths to me or i'd get another phone since i am switching over to android altogether and have an on-contract choice of anything (and i actually really like the samsung brand, no pref for motorola or htc). the 1080P is very clearly a strength, 720 is weaker. Sound boom is a strength that only the HTC one has, the S4 does not despite it's adding all high end specs, and i'd like it for sure, but the other benefits outweigh that for many (not all obviously, just as boom for some outtweigh the need for a relatively compact phone . that htc size is no joke, even their mini is the same size as the moto.). Extra sensor core so you don't have to hit the HTC one's awkwardly placed wake button 25 times a day at minimum? Point X, phew!!. As for carrier, it's only a "weakness" for non-Tmobile persons, and actually, it's not a weakness, but rather not a strength since no others have it either. I'm with Sprint and getting black or white, don't even like the colors and the strengths/benefits of the phone still outweigh the 1080/Boom sound (now, had they offered a glitter option for the back and THEN i'd be pissed, lol. so pissed). I'm not even going to go there with processor because none of us have handled the phone and cannot speak to that in any way except a couple of videos, one that favors the htc and one that favors the moto x.

    And if, because by tally of strengths and weaknesses one could consider the One as a "better" phone, that in no way means the X is not a great phone or not worth of being a flagship/high end phone. If the One is "better" does that make everything else lame? of course not.

    Hopefully I won't get shot for posting on these forums, since I am a dyed in the wool Apple guy. This includes my personal devices and what we do in my company. We have an app up in the Apple App Store, as part of a much larger software product we sell to Enterprise. Our Mobile Strategy is iOS exclusive right now. The next tablet target for us is Windows Pro tablets due to the customer profile we support. We see some pressure from the market to support Android, and due to the fragmentation of the platform, I have said that we currently have no plans to support Android. In short, I expect that I'm the type of Apple supporter that you guys love to hate.

    Why am I telling you this? I thought this background might be useful when passing along my thoughts re the Moto X. It is the first Android phone that I find tempting. I buy Mobile Devices for the experience not specs, and Moto has shown the courage to sacrifice some of the spec game for stuff that actually matters like battery life. Their multi-processor architecture seems very smart to me, especially if the promise of longer life is achieved. And that architecture allows the phone to listen all day for voice input. I find that feature appealing, because it can potentially deliver real convenience that I can use. Active Display also sounds great.

    So Moto seems to have put some real thought and intelligence into the design of this device. I see a lot of complaining about the specs, but for most of the world, specs just don't matter any more. But battery life sure does. I am quite interested going forward to see how much of the Moto X promise is delivered in actual use.

    So overall, I think Motorola deserves a lot of credit for forging their own path here.

    It is the first Android phone that I find tempting.
    2nd. I have been waiting for a phone that i would switch to Android for and it is finally here, i was actually staying on webos! That's how much i was so unmoved by the "powerhouse" (oh, great, woopie do) phones on the market. A few days ago i was in Sprint, desperate to find a great non-ginormo fast phone with few android o/s issues, the s4 came the closest but i just couldn't do it. Plus the guy mentioned his need to do a reset 3x+ a month. Nothing drives me crazier (other than ackwardly placed buttons, hey htc, i'm lookin' at you!) than that. I left disappointed. That night i came home and saw the Moto X online. BAM. Done. Waiting for this to get into a store. Does it "blow the competition away", no, is it an awesome phone? Sure seems like it!
