These numbers are in the modest side of high-end phones but the way Motorola has designed Moto X it allows for are certain very fascinating and unique features.
Moto Maker – The device is big from the point of customization
Moto Maker is a site that people can use to order their phones in many different color options. The front of the device can only be black or white, but the back can be any of the other options available. You can customize the color of the back plate and any of the accents individually. Motorola says this works out to roughly 2000 different combinations of colors for the Moto X. Some of the software aspects like welcome message, text engraving on the back of the phone and your Google account settings can also be customized with no additional charge. Though you will have to pay extra if you want to choose the accessories you want with your device. As of now the Moto Maker customization is an AT&T exclusive, though other carriers are also expected to offer this service shortly afterwards.
Software and Features
Moto X has Touchless Control, which enables the use of voice and gestures to get to the user what they need. It is also the first handset with actual “always on” functionality. It will have Google Now software, and an array of sensors and 2 microprocessors for dedicated natural language processing core and context computing processor. These are specially designed to recognize user’s voice and interpret the surroundings. Even when the device is asleep these natural language processor can run all the time in the background. As soon as you say the trigger phrase, even in your sleep, the device will wake up and go into Google Now voice search mode. No other phone has the capability to do it without destroying the battery life of the device. Its Active Display feature will allow you to display the information you need on a small portion of screen instead of typical notification light, which means it can display notifications on the screen without waking up the rest of the phone from the sleep mode. The Moto X’s 10 megapixel Clear Pixel camera will also feature Quick Capture.
The phone will be available starting at the end of August or early September in the US, Canada, and Latin America, and will be coming to users for an on-contract price of $199.99 for 16GB, or $250 for 32GB (Moto Maker only). The Moto X seems to be well- positioned with multi-carrier support, unique features, and loads of customization options. The only thing to see is if the experience of using it can compete with more powerful phones in the market from HTC and Samsung.
