Motorola Moto X

Why You’ll Like It Calling a smartphone “comfortable” is kind of a weird description. But it's a word that fits Motorola’s flagship device very well. The Moto X just fits. It fits in your hand, fits in your lifestyle, fits in your pocket. It runs Android and has a proprietary system that Google calls “X8 Mobile Computing System” that runs its advanced Touchless Control voice features, gesture-based controls and Active Notifications system. The Moto X may come from Google and Motorola, but it's not just another stock Android smartphone. Oh, and you can also design what the phone looks like yourself. Why You Won’t While the Moto X has some of the best voice controls of any smartphone around, it is not the be-all, end-all of voice interactions. You have to say “OK Google Now” to prompt the system anytime you want to use it. This becomes slightly awkward at the office or in social situations. The camera is good but lags those on the Lumia 1020 and the Galaxy S4. In many ways (except for voice control), the Moto X is second-best to everything else on the market. That still makes for a pretty good smartphone these days, though.
