Motorola Moto X 2014 Edition, More Than You Can Possibly Imagine

October 7, 2014

Motorola Moto X 2014 EditionThe world of Android flagships has just received a new powerful, top-notch device that comes from Motorola, the new Moto X, an impressive handset that came to take the place of its predecessor (the 2013 Moto X) and enter in the race with this year’s most capable performers. Like the previous version, the new Moto X holds some tempting features on board and can be nicely customized on the outside, and this time you may even choose a Horween leather back. Feeling interested? Keep reading and find out more!
In its retail package, the Moto X comes accompanied by a charger, a microUSB cable for making data transfers and re-charging your handset, a little tool for ejecting the nanoSIM card and the user manual. Unfortunately, no headset to join the party, yet the price of the Moto X allows you to buy a separate pair of headphones without making your wallet feel empty.
In terms of design, the Moto X is a really handsome and interesting fella, as you can choose between a plethora of back covers, including genuine leather ones. The aluminum frame that surrounds the body is also available in light and dark shades and adds a beautiful touch of class to the already elegant and stylish chassis. The handset is very well put together and is defined by high quality materials; it stands at 140.8 x 72.4 x 10 mm and has a weight of 144 grams.
Handling the Moto X is a pleasure due to its curved body which stands comfortable in your hands and pockets.
The Moto X comes with a 5.2 inches AMOLED capacitive touchscreen that offers a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and has a 424 ppi pixel density. Also, it’s protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The image quality is very good, with vibrant and punchy colors (but a bit inaccurate), wide viewing angles and great contrast.
When browsing through the Moto X, you’ll be welcomed by the latest and greatest from Android, v4.4.4 KitKat, and offers a pure Android experience with all the classic stuff present: widgets, notification center, quick toggles, folders and so on. Google Now is also present for listening to your commands and displaying relevant information for you, as it learns about your interests and habits from your searches and “behavior”. The user experience is wonderful, as everything works like a charm and you won’t be annoyed by any issues whatsoever.
In terms of hardware, the new Moto X holds inside a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, having a quad-core 2.5 GHz Krait 400 processor, Adreno 330 GPU, 2 GB of RAM and 16 or 32 GB of internal storage. There’s no card slot, so you’ll have to settle with that. The performance is top-notch due to this powerful configuration and poses a serious threat to its other competitors.
At the connectivity area, the Moto X shows support for quad-band GSM, GPRS, EDGE, 3G and LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac with Wi-Fi Hotspot and DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 with EDR, LE and A2DP, NFC and microUSB 2.0 with USB host.
For surfing the web, you have Google Chrome at your service, which offers a multitude of features and options for offering you the best user experience you can enjoy.
For capturing stills, the new Moto X has a 13 megapixels snapper with autofocus that takes photos with a maximum resolution of 4128 x 3096 pixels and has a dual-LED flash for assisting in low light conditions. The camera application reveals support for HDR, panorama, face detection, touch focus and more. The photos produced offer a very good image quality, with accurate colors, good contrast and a decent amount of resolved detail.
The video camera is able to produce some wonderful 2160p videos @30 fps.
There’s also a front-facing 2MP camera on board for making video calls.
The Moto X also holds some great media players. For watching movies, you have a very capable video-player which has support for all the popular formats, such as MPEG4, VC-1, VP8, H.263 or H.264.
For listening to music, the Google Play Music is here and offers a lot of features, including an equalizer. The audio quality is excellent with or without a pair of headphones plugged in.
Some other things that might interest you from the Moto Xs’ package are a GPS receiver with A-GPS and GLONASS support, the Quick Office suite for viewing and editing document files, Google Maps for navigation and more.
The Moto X holds a 2,300 mAH battery inside and will offer you two days under a re-charge if used moderately.
