Moto X – the 2nd generation has a lot of promising features and aspects that Android and Google lovers will find very appealing and suited for their taste. It’s build, design, and unique feature like Moto Voice, Moto Assist, Moto Actions, and Moto Display give the Moto X an exciting device to play.
Moto X is ready for Android 5.1 update and running on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 2.5 Ghz quad-core processor. The 5.2-inch display boasts of brilliant 1080p Full HD Display on Corning Gorilla Glass plus amazing water-resistant coating. Moto X really does have a powerful specs to get into as you look at the fantastic specs and features.
Moto X has a non-removable battery of 2300mAh capacity, say it can last up to 24 hours. That’s not bad. And we also like its aesthetic aluminum frame on the side panel and slight curved on the back. The size is perfect for handling and we think that Moto X’s design is really awesome. In fact, when we first saw it in real form, we immediately made a hands down. Especially that we knew that this is a big comeback for Motorola in the country.
We test drive the unit for a great amount of time and we can’t argue that the specs are definitely great. But what it lacks from Android phones is the ability to fully satisfy the usability of the device. The power button is hot but the fully functionality of it to select restart or airplane mode made it feel less the multi-function set up for this kind of smartphone.
Moto X is pack with 13MP Quick Capture equipped with ring flash with dual LED and astonishing 4K UHD video capture for rear view camera. The front has only 2MP (1080p Full HD). We expected much of this specs (not with the 13MP but with its 4K UHD quality) and greatly depend on it while we test shot the phone with its camera function. To say the most, the camera result has high-quality definition.
Below are some photos taken by Moto X.
The Lollipop version lets you close the running applications on the background all at the same time when it’s not in use. In Moto X case, you need to close the Apps one by one so that you can save some storage and memory use.
Moto X may not be your average mid-range smartphone when it comes to pricing and affordability for those looking for cheap phone. Moto X is not a cheap phone and doesn’t have to be. It’s fairly priced at Php 16,999 for a 2GB RAM and 16GB storage device. The thing is, consumers were introduced to valued smartphone that comes in affordable price and this is where it will hit the comparison.
Take for example the Asus Zenfone 2 which was launched in May of this year. The 4GB RAM and 32 GB storage Zenfone 2 was initially priced at PhP 13,995 only, yet it packs with cool specs and features, including the built-in camera app PixelMaster.
Moto X is compatible with a nano SIM card.
We hope that Moto X will have a grand sale and will try to bring the price down, let’s say PhP 12,000 will be fair enough so as to fix the price competition in the market.
In these in mind, we are giving the Moto X a 4/5 rating.
