Motorola lost sight of what the X originally stood for

So the original X was an awesome device and really changed a lot of things in terms of smartphones. Seems moto has forgotten what so many loved with the original moto x in their new devices, especially the rumored moto x 4.

"Unfortunately, as more and more leaks/renders started to pour in, it became obvious that this simply was not going to be the case (see photo below).

Assuming the current device renders for the Moto X4 are accurate (which they likely are), the X4 will be nothing more than yet another Motorola-branded budget smartphone offering. The specifications look typical of what plenty of other devices have to offer, the design looks exactly like every other Moto phone that’s been released in the past year, and the plastic, wood, and leather materials are being ditched in favor of a considerably more boring metal construction.

And there’s no iconic Moto dimple.

In a bubble, the Moto X4 will likely be a fine phone — possibly even a good one. However, in order to be successful in this industry these days, you need to do whatever you can to stand out and be different. From what we know about the X4 so far, it’s doing absolutely nothing to achieve this.

There are plenty of phones that don’t do a lot to be unique or different, but considering what the Moto X series originally stood for, seeing what the X4 has become is a true shame.

I don’t know about other long-time Moto X fans, but I can say with certainty that this one will be skipping out on a new Moto X entry for the first time in 4 years."
