Available in an array of colors, Motorola Moto X can now be purchased in the US via AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. The two basic models of Moto X (Woven Black and Woven White) are available at Republic Wireless and U.S. Cellular. Moto X is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro with a speed of 1.7GHz similar to that of Vertu Constellation Android Phone, but faster. It has a Dual-Core Krait CPU for natural language processor and its quad-core Adreno 320 GPU is basically used for contextual computing.
The Moto X has a bright 4.7-inch AMOLED (RGB) screen capable of displaying 720P HD resolution. Don’t get me wrong but the Front-facing and Rear cameras (2MP and 10MP, respectively) are both capable of capturing at FUll HD resolution (1080P) even beating HTC One X Quad-Core in speed and responsiveness by a bit. Its rear camera has LED flash and can captures clear videos at 30 fps. For closer shots, 4X digital zoom will be very useful.
What we like most is the slow motion video and other modes or scenes of the Moto X camera. Burst mode, Auto HDR, Panorama are all in there. You can tap to focus on your subject prior to taking the shot.
So far this impressive phone retails at an affordable price – US$99.99 on Verizon Wireless with a 2-year contract.
Several upgrades or customizations can be made via Moto Maker (change front and rear covers or backplates, download wallpapers, customize backplates with your own signature and the like).
For some earlier releases, Motorola Moto X has Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean is installed but for newer production, it already has Android 4.4 KitKat installed. More of the technical specs in our future posts so stay with us.
