Motorola Moto X Style review: a big phablet with a lot to offer

 

Moto's latest flagship is a solid performer if you can handle the size

Attractive price ; Strong performance ; Brilliant screen

Disappointing battery life ; Bulky heavy design

Moto X review

 

Moto X 2014 is a pure Android smartphone updated to be bigger and better

Great 5.2-inch screen ; Moto Maker customizations ; Aluminum frame ; Cheaper than rivals

No micro SD slot ; Leather back bruises easily ; Camera inconsistent

Scores in depth Update: Moto X continues to be one of the most stylish Android phones in 2015 and looks even better with Android Lollipop. Our review reflects that.

Motorola Moto X review (UK edition) - Pocket-lint

 

-

Great design, nice features over the standard Google offering, fantastic battery life

More expensive than the Nexus 5 and a lower spec, camera isn't amazing, no Moto Maker customisation (yet)

In one sense, nothing has changed since our initial Moto X review based on our US experience of this phone. But that was six months ago and pre-Nexus 5. Times have changed, but our soft spot for this phone hasn't.

Motorola has just unveiled its first flagship device since becoming a Google-owned company, and it's a beauty. The Moto x has a two-part shell construction

Motorola Moto X review

 

With its fantastic screen, amazing battery life and premium build quality, the Moto X sets the benchmark for mid-range phones

Motorola Moto X

 

It's at least five per cent classier than the Moto G, but is that enough?

Classy, simple design, Neat 'active display' notifications, Excellent HDR shots

Out-of-date processor, Poor low-light camera shots, Slightly overpriced

Motorola Moto X video review: Flagship struggles to compete with rivals

Motorola Moto X review

 

The Moto X is a pretty standard looking phone from the front. With no logo and a chunky looking plastic bezel, it's not off to a good start. The front is also made worse, on our white model at least, by an obvious camera, sensors and a drilled hole for...

For a flagship phone the Moto X comes in at a very reasonable price. Performance and software are both excellent but the device is lacking that premium feel and is a little way behind the leaders in some areas. Unfortunately, Motorola spent too long...
