    I can't put into words how much I agree with this. People are gonna have a bad taste in their mouth over this and moto will suffer for quite a while unless they have some miracle phone up their sleeves.
    Really? Moto is to blame? Not your carrier? How do you blame the manufacturer when your store doesn't have what to want in stock?

    Once again, it was not available on all carriers. I listed Canadian Carriers as an example of missing features. There were several carriers around the world who didn't get Siri till at least a year after its release.
    No, you listed Canadian carriers that had Siri that wasn't fully functional which I explained why that was. There were no iphone 4s models released without Siri.

    Yes, Moto is to blame. Do you see GS4s on some carriers missing touchless gestures? Do you see HTC Ones on carriers missing front facing speakers? Do you see iphones on carriers missing...well..whatever it is that Apple says is so great about them? No, because any decent manufacturer will tell the carriers where they can stick it if they try to neuter their flagship phone by removing one of the main features that they are advertising.

    I know you're not supposed to admit you're wrong on the internet, but it's ok for you to do it. No one will be mad at you. When the iphone 4s came out, every single iphone 4s model had Siri. No matter what else you try to throw in there, my argument has always been that when the iphone 4s came out, every single iphone 4s had Siri. I'm not referring to the ipad which is referenced in that article. I'm not talking about a certain version of ios. What i'm saying is that Apple advertised the iphone 4s as having a great feature called Siri. Every single iphone 4s that was released had Siri. If you think Japan's iphone 4s didn't have Siri you're just wrong.

    The article states it was announced at the ipad 3 event. The where the announcement happen has nothing to do with the fact I am correct. Several other Carriers did not get Siri till IOS6. This is a matter of fact.

    It still at the time had mssing features at different carriers the same complaint you make about the Moto X.

    Yeah but you can see it's like 4.5-6 hours based on the 2nd shot... and it's got that active updates, so it's actually "on" way more than anything else gives it credit for being on.

    I've said about half a dozen times that I'm talking about what Apple announced with the iphone 4s, yet you keep bringing up everything but the iphone 4s. At this point you are not at all addressing my point and are instead arguing against some points that I really don't care about. If you need to be "right" so you can have internet bragging rights, then fine, you're "right" This thread is about questions people have for Phil about the X and i'm done sidetracking it by repeating myself only to have my words completely ignored so you can "win" the argument. So be proud, you "won." Either way i'm done addressing it with you.

    So yeah.. That's so wrong in so may ways. Keep supporting a carrier that doesn't want to offer you all the options you want and you will continue to get what you get. The definition of insanity. Keep doing what you do and you'll keep getting what you get. If you don't like it quit supporting the one that's making your life so mistake. Motorola has a 32gb option and custom options available, Verizon doesn't let you have that option. If you don't like it then change carriers. Pretty simple.

    I still have the original Droid Razr. A month after I got it, Motorola came out withe the Maxx. Is that going to happen again? If there will be a X-Maxx I would want to wait for it. Do you think that there will be an X-Maxx?

    When you are connected to WIFI, do the cellular signal strength bars turn GREY, and is there a gap/space between the WIFI icon and the cellular signal icon.
    Standard Motorola. The "gap" isn't really a gap--turn off WiFi and you'll see the cellular Data type appear there (E/Edge, 4G or LTE). Either the Wifi SS fan or both cellular data type and SS indicator will turn blue when a link to Google Services (sync, push etc) is established via that method--youll never see both blue at the same time.

    If every major manufacturer but one can control the features they put out on a carrier then how is it the carrier's fault and not the manufacturer?
    More importantly, I weigh every factor when deciding what carrier to use. Where I live I would get crap coverage from any carrier other than Verizon. I'm grandfathered in on Verizon's unlimited data, so I pay $23.99 for unlimited data. On a slow month I use about 20 GB of Data. I think it would be quite a bit more insane to pay a ton more for less data and crappier coverage just to get a phone with more storage that, quite honestly, I don't really need.
    And do you think its not Moto's fault? Do you think every carrier but one said no to a huge selling point like customizations? Its not just Verizon that doesn't have it.

    OK so was the HTC one a carrier exclusive? Or did Verizon just not want to offer it to you on release? Hell they still don't offer it. So that's HTC's fault right? A manufacturer cannot force someone to buy something. The people running the company need to think that's it's going to be profitable. Verizon thinks that pushing there DROID brand and having smaller storage is going to make them more money.

    So you reward a carrier for not giving you the options you want? If your stuck with Verizon then you are stuck with them. But you can't blame the manufacturer of the product because your store doesn't offer what you want. If the store in your town doesn't have the brand of television you want is that the manufacturer's fault? Manufacturers make money by selling products. Retail outlets try to make the most money they can by offering what they think they can make the most money on. Verizon has shown that they are not going to offer all the high end phones. And yes that wouldn't be smart to leave your unlimited data plan. But that's not Moto's fault. Verizon will offer you what you want when they want to. If that's not on a time frame that makes you happy then let them know

    Is there any way to activate speaker phone while using the touchless controls?

    In other words, if I say "OK, Google Now, call Mom"......is there any way to turn on speakerphone without having to touch the screen?

    I'd like to know this as well. I read somewhere that you cannot, but would love to know for sure.

    Edit: i just saw a video online that did just that.

    Phil, there were rumors that Moto X would have two antennas dedicated to 4G/LTE (Dual LTE MIMO Smart Antennas) to deliver great LTE performance. Did this turn out to be true? Thanks for answering all of our questions! It is great for those of us deciding between buying this or another device.

    About the off-contract prices by AT&T..

    $579 - 16 GB
    $629 - 32 GB

    Are those prices for the "unlocked" version of the phone??

    Thanks!

    They would still be locked, however, AT&T should be willing to give you an unlock code if you buy off contract. I think the general consensus is that at some point, there will be Google Play editions? Maybe wait for one of those? (cheaper pricing possibly?)
