    I've got the new Moto X, you've got questions. Fire away!!!-moto-x-wood.jpg

    I'm on a plane today headed for Las Vegas, with the new Moto X safely in my pocket. I've been using it all weekend, and will continue to use it this week. If you've got questions, I've got some answers. Ask away!

    (And do note that if I don't respond immediately, it's because I'm indeed traveling.)

    Have at it!

    How's the camera? Does it seem to be better? Also, the battery? I have a Droid Maxx and love the Touchless Controls, Active Notification and battery life. Wondering if it would be worth considering the switch to the new Moto X? Thanks Phil!

    Cheers!

    Definitely. Not unwieldy, but certainly bigger.

    The camera's definitely better, I think. How much better? We'll see.

    Jury's still out on the battery. That said, 2,300 mAh < 3,000 mAh, ya know?

    I typically use cases for my phones and one of the main reasons is to protect the camera lens. With the Moto X and its available custom backs, I wouldn't want to use a case.

    How exposed is the camera lens when placing the phone down?

    Moto Voice. Not all the new features will be able to be ported back to the OG Moto X due to lack of IR sensors. Do the new software features warrant an upgrade on their own? The software features of the OG Moto X are the premier features of that phone, I use them extensively.

    How useful/gimicky are the hand gestures?

    Is the new "set your own 'OK Google Now'" reliable?

    Any word on when US versions will be available for preorder?

    Thanks like always Phil!

    Overall impression for used just one weekend? Things you love and things you hate so far? I know jury is still out on the battery life, but were you able to go for at least 16 hours without the need to charge (I imagine you use your phone as much as any other techies)?

    Exactly as you see in the picture. It's just there.

    Second the battery question..does it get you a full day? Really the only thing keeping me from it 100%. What's the biggest difference from the current gen Moto X?

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. Is it recessed at all, flush, or raised a bit like my Galaxy S3?

    You have the white model, but could you tell me if the black model comes with the same chrome like aluminum or if the back model has an adonized coating to make it darker?

    I was looking forward to the same form factor w/ better camera and battery. I tried the LG G3 for the battery and camera and it was nice just really big for my hands (and pockets). Since it is something that I am familiar with, can you compare the new Moto X's size with that of the G3?

    Is there a compelling reason to shell out $499.00 USD for the 16g version when a 64g One Plus One can be had for $350.00? Likewise, what does it do $150.00 better than an N5? My head is scratching on the X 2014, just dont see it, at least as an unlocked purchase.

    Given the specs' sheet, I'd say that battery life is everyone's biggest concern, but I see we'll have to wait on that, so off to the display I go.
    How saturated it is? What about colours' reproduction? Are we on the annoyingly over-poppy side or more on the still not incredibly accurate but eye-pleasing one?

    Another request for more battery & camera info being that I'm sold on this thing aside from those two components. I keep hearing the camera is "better than the original" but that's not saying much since the original was the worst smartphone camera I had used since 2009. Can the camera compete with other flagships on the market? And how long has the battery lasted through your first few days of usage? 2,300 mah is a very small number for a 1080p screen so I'm extremely skeptical about it's endurance. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Off hand, I'd say probably in line with last year's model. Need to do more side by sides on that though.

    Does it have an IR blaster? With the new sensors on the front are you missing features like "double tap" for screen on featured with other devices?
