|Motorola Moto X|
Just recently, the US brand which was acquired by Lenovo has changed the progress of the game by introducing an all-new Moto X smartphone. The second-generation Moto X which obviously carries the same name, now has a much larger display with higher screen resolution, advanced mobile software paired with a faster chipset, all loaded in a premium metal case.
The new Moto X has a 5.2-inch 1080p AMOLED display enclosed in a Corning Gorilla Glass 3, bigger than the Samsung’s latest galaxy device. Its high-quality display features a more brighter, sharper and sleeker screen with improved viewing angles.
Motorola Moto X’s ergonomic design is still a reminiscent of the previous model but with a metallic finish which rest comfortably in a hand. On board the slim smartphone, is a new 13-megapixel camera with dual LED flash which can shoot 4K video at 2160p other than the standard 1080p, an advanced stereo speakers which can play clearer sounds, faster 4G LTE connectivity and a bunch of essentially added sensors.
The Moto X feature slightly changed version of Android 4.4 KitKat and Motorola has already announced that it will be upgraded soon to Android L after its official release later this year. Moto X user-interface is a pure Android experience, meaning its software is as minimalist and fast as the Google Nexus smartphones. Other features include a Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor as the Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One M8, which makes it a more flawlessly responsive device, from simple tasks to 3D gaming.
While you could still change the look and feel of the new Moto X with a variety of custom backs, Motorola called it as Shells, with leather options via the unique Moto Maker. Like the previous Moto X, it also comes with a suite of relatively smart apps such as the much accurate voice control feature Moto Voice, which you can setup aside from the famed “Ok Google” command, also the Moto Display which shows-off alerts and notifications automatically through lighting up the phone or whenever you pick it up.
The premium smartphone comes with a 16GB or 32GB internal storage, 2GB of RAM and a large 2,300mAh battery, good enough to lasts at least 8 hours of full day use. It ships in black or white at $499 price tag, more or less at around ₱22,500 in the Philippines.
With a bigger display, faster chipset smartly engineered software and premium metal body, the Moto X 2014 has proved it can now sit along with the Galaxy S5, HTC One M8 and Sony Xperia Z3.
