Moto X review

 

Moto X 2nd Gen is the most stylish pure Android phone

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

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

Moto X 2nd Generation gives pure Android fans a reason to opt for this budget-friendly phone with a 1080p display and premium design. The camera isn't perfect and its features aren't as exciting as other cheap phones, but it's still stylish as ever.

Does bigger mean better for the new Moto X?

Fantastic build and feel ; Moto Maker ; Moto Display

Far from excellent camera ; Battery life could be better

Motorola Moto X (2014) review: An uncluttered Android marvel - Pocket-lint

 

-

Great value, decent front speakers, Moto Maker customisation options, free of clutter, early Android updates

No microSD card slot, camera not the best

The Motorola Moto X is an appealing proposition. It offers great value for money as a flagship handset and even if you opt to customise with a leather or other finish using Moto Maker, you'll still be getting something more affordable than rivals - and...

Motorola Moto X (2014) review

 

A phone that feels like it works for you

Solid, customisable design Excellent user experience Fast performance Sharp screen Full-bodied & enthusiastic sound Cheaper than most rivals

Non-expandable storage could be restrictive Camera could be better

If we’re honest, it has been somewhat of a surprise at just how good the Moto X is. Its specs are competitive, and much improved from last year, but hardly makes the phone stand out in the crowd. There are no bells, no whistles; nothing screaming ‘pick...

Motorola Moto X (2014)

 

Motorola is coming to play with the big boys

Excellent performance ; Intuitive operation ; Beefy-sounding speaker

Over-saturated screen ; Battery life doesn't match rivals ; Camera is disappointing, unreliable

It's not beautiful, but feel free to disagree. Despite being self-consciously somewhat Frankenstein’s-monster-like, it’s something that only exhibits in the look, not the feel. There’s zero flex, even to the plastic version, and the inner and outer...

Motorola Moto X (2014) review

 

Since when was Motorola capable of producing a true superphone? Since now

Gorgeous, solid, customisable build ; Simple but futuristic software ; Just. So. Fast. ; Cheaper than rival flagships

Maximum 32GB storage ; Camera is not the absolute best

A seriously clever, always-on Android that’s made awesome by you

Motorola Moto X 2014 review: the second-generation Moto X is a brilliant smartphone with pure Android

 

With its aluminium frame and premium materials, the second-generation Moto X really feels in a different league from the original smartphone.

Motorola Moto X review (2014)

 

The all-new Moto X (previously thought to be called the X+1 or X2) has been "redesigned from the ground up" according to Motorola, and feels every inch the flagship Android device.

The standard, non-customised Moto X is a desirable smartphone, but it's a little overpriced especially if you compare it with the Nexus 5. So Google's phone may lack the premium build quality and hi-res camera, but in most other respects it's a match...

Motorola Moto X 2013 vs new Moto X 2014 comparison

 

So let's get to it: it's Moto X 2013 vs Moto X 2014. Deal with it. And for more on the new Moto X, see: Motorola Moto X (2nd generation) hands-on review: the new flagship Android smartphone you can personalise.

So the second-generation Moto X is categorically better than its predecessor. Significantly so. It has a much more powerful spec, and the display is what we hoped we'd see on the 2013 version. The camera is now worth your consideration, and it is a...

Motorola Moto X (2nd generation) hands-on review

 

When Motorola launched the Moto X in 2013, it had some unique features, such as the ability to wake up to voice commands without needing to touch the phone at all. However, it was fairly expensive but didn't have the top-end specs or build quality of...

It's too early to give a definitive verdict on the new Moto X. We'll update this review when we've fully tested it.
