Google has officially unveiled the Motorola Moto X, a 4.7-inch smartphone which offers a high level of customization options.

Through their online studio, Moto Maker, you choose the colors, and decide on the details: front, back, accents, memory, wallpapers, even add a name or a short message. The device is assembled in the USA and shipped for free in 4 days or less.



Choose from more than 2,000 possible combinations, with more to come. We’ll be constantly exploring new offerings, such as real wood backs, starting later in the year. Still love the classics? You can choose an eye-catching woven black or woven white model right in the store.

Motorola is also touting some other signature features:

Touchless Control
Moto X is ready when you are. It responds to your voice - no touching necessary. With Touchless Control you can check the weather, get directions, or do just about anything without lifting a finger. Moto X doesn’t guess like other phones do. It knows.

Active Display
With Active Display, Moto X keeps the information you need to know at your fingertips. Instead of a constantly blinking light, important information quietly appears on the screen. It doesn’t interrupt. You don’t have to wake it up to look at the time or see your messages. Before you know it, that constant itch to check your phone will be gone forever.


Quick Capture
Need to capture that perfect moment before it’s gone? All it takes is two quick twists of your wrist and Moto X’s Quick Capture camera is ready to shoot. Touch anywhere on the screen and you’ll get just the shot you want. Its high-quality sensor can capture the darkest scenes or stop motion blur in bright light. You’ll see the difference in every shot.


Moto X will be available in the US, Canada and Latin America starting in late August/early September. In the US, woven black and woven white models will be available at AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular, Verizon Wireless and at national retailers including Best Buy stores with a suggested retail price of $199 with a new two-year agreement. Additionally, it will be available on all carriers, including T-Mobile, at Motorola.com.

No offense to samsung folks, but whatever said, an iphone is iphone and no other device can beat it.

Ok software features nothing much new here but a 24hour uptime with only 2200mAh. Ok so if I leave this thing with the screen on what then? I get 24hours of life? Or real close? I really don't think so but wow if that's on point. It's so not going to be way I get it, but that would be the only thing I could get the most out of! Everything else is what app are supposed to be for! Google needs to stop letting other companies put their bullshit in the phones let us have the choice to use the software as an app. And if we don't want it we can delete it. If Android is such a great operating system then we should be able to do that and I'm not talking about rooting we should not have to root shit! To me Android is a good system and iOS too... But Rooting & jailbreaking is a hassle and should never have to be done. whatever these companies have to make money, so they have to force us to take all the bullshit they put in there phones.

Oh people if you didn't notice there is no phone with the highest spec sheet, there's always a feature going to come out to tromp an earlier phone then a phone to come out with much more power than a phone to come out with less power but more features vice versa. I say give me the highest spec phone with the most features. Maybe change the form factor a little for different people and the size but don't make 10 phones for every company doing almost the same thing having one flagship and a bunch of budget phones, I know I'm asking for too much these companies have to make money but I don't really care about them making money... I only care about what I want n no bull is what I want. Well at least I know the cell phone carriers are who I hate the most!!!!

Well looks like Motorola got their heads out of each others a$$holes and decided to release a phone to all carriers (not just Verizon), its cool you can customize from the factory, but it just doesn't seem as unique as say an iPhone 5 with a different color anodized bezel or colored glass, something not too many people have (or know you can get). The reactions I get for my iPhone 5 with red glass I know I won't get with a Moro X. The usual reaction I get is "whoa, where the f\/ck did you get that?!" Whereas with this it will be more like "oh, cool story bro"

Notice how everyone is still comparing this phone with the iPhone... I thought the galaxy killed the iPhone along time ago..... Why dont they say "galaxy s4 killer" or "Nokia killer" hahaha #teamiphone

They're just alittle slow and do it for the attention. Every somewhat high end phone that has came out since the original iPhone has been said to be the "iPhone Killer". Still hasn't happened.

Because galaxy phones are cheaply made and break too damn easily, us iPhone sales still out sell every other phone on the market. People and companies compare everything to the iPhone because the iPhone sets the standard of what a smartphone should be. Design, build quality, universal and reliable OS (usable by anyone who picks it up) and overall how well the device performs over time. In Europe, most people won't even looks twice at a device if its not an iPhone, I show then a note II or s4 and they usually tell me they want an iPhone, not cheap garbage. Why do you think some of Samsung top employees choose to use Mac computers, iPhones and iPads? They all works seamlessly together whereas as android devices are very disorganized and don't work very well together. Not everyone cares about what you can do "out of the box" or about the highest specs, all that is out the windows if the device doesn't do what you need it to do. I have my 64gb iPhone 5 I use as my main phone, its jailbroken on iOS 6.1.2 and does exactly what I need/want it to do. I have my Htc one m7 as my secondary phone, its rooted and running stock GE ROM and does some pretty cool stuff, but can't do exactly what I need it to do and I can't customize the way I like. Does this make iOS better? No, it just works for me, android phones with higher specs aren't better for everyone, neither is iOS. There is no such thing as a perfect OS, but some phones work better for some people than others. Just don't be a biased prick is all I'm saying, keep an open mind. Not everyone is you.
