Google and Motorola’s joint stab at creating their very own flagship device
The Moto X is Motorola’s first flagship release since Google acquired their services, inevitably giving the consumer a cleaner Android experience.
The X was originally launched in the US back in August ’13 taking almost six months to reach the UK and Europe.
Motorola will be hoping that their latest flagship gets the same hype and exposure as it’s little brother (Moto G) in a quest to turn around the companies financial fortunes from some fairly substantial losses over the last year and a half.
Motorola stated that they have put a lot of effort into the fine tuning of the Moto X’s speech recognition to handle all kinds of accents and tones; as the touchless control facility ‘Google Now’ features heavily on the Moto X with Andrew Morley (director of Motorola UK) stressing “The Moto X is a device which is trying to change the way people think about the smartphone”
These are very interesting comments, I’ll be focusing on what Moto’s Director is referring to later on in depth.
I’ll just start by outlining the main spec of the Moto X:
- 1.7 GHz Dual-Core processor
- 2 GB RAM
- 16 GB internal memory (12 GB available)
- 4.7 AMOLED display
- 10MP CLEAR PIXEL camera
- MicroUSB with USB host
- Miracast (screen mirroring)
