Motorola is back in the Indian market and what a comeback it has been. First the MOTO G and now the MOTO X. Moto G offered what consumers really wanted — good build, quality display, fast processor and a price tag that doesn’t break the bank — from a well-known brand. The Moto X just goes beyond any imagination that MOTO G bought with it. The phone is available in white, blue and two woods finishes. The phone costs Rs.23, 999 for the plastic variants and Rs.25, 999 for the wood-panelled models. All the colors make the phone look equally stunning. The back is non-removable features a rubberised coating. The black version gets a nice pattern so it’s not as bland as the Moto G.
Moto X Specifications
MOTO X is not very slim 10.4mm in depth but then again it feels very reassuring in your hand with those curvy edges. The bezel along the side is half glossy and half rubberized from where the back overlaps. The X has a Nano-SIM tray instead of a micro-SIM. Add to it the 10 MP shooter and we also have a 2 MP shooter up front. Moreover, a LED flash and speaker grille rounding off all the external features makes it a good value for money. Predominantly plastic, Moto X has a little bit of metal in it. The Power/Lock as well as Volume Rocker buttons (placed on the right side) are also made of metal and feel well designed and extremely easy to access. There are no other hardware buttons, as the Back, Home and Task Switcher keys are on the screen.
Moto X Features
The X comes with a 4.7-inch AMOLED display with a decently high resolution. The HD display ensures a healthy pixel count of 312ppi. The level of detail in icons and text for the X are super sharp. Also it has a little surprise package with it known as Active Display. The phone uses the accelerometer to light up the display each time you lift or tilt the phone and fades away. You can view the notification by simply holding the icon and dismiss it by swiping left or right. This works with any notification from any app. The X is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro SOC. The MSM8960T packs in two Krait 200 cores running at 1.7GHz each. The X also has Adreno 320 graphics on board, which is a proven GPU. App loading will not be a problem with the X having 2 GB of RAM.
Moto X Battery Life
Along with the 10MP camera, Motorola has used an unusual type of sensor including the use of a so-called Clear Pixel, which is meant to help in low light situations and generally helps in exposing pictures more accurately. The Motorola Moto X supports 3G and quad-band 2G. You also get dual-band Wi-Fi ‘ac’, Bluetooth v4.0, USB Host, NFC, Miracast, GPS and GLONASS. The 2200mAh battery will easily give you a full day’s worth of usage. Also the X comes with a power saver mode that kicks in once the battery hits orange level and cuts off packet data. At the price of 23,999 the phone has no real competition perhaps aside from the NEXUS clan. The software and the specs don’t matter when you strike a great understanding with your phone, and the X proves it.
