Motorola Moto X 

After their ground breaking Moto G handset recently reviewed what could Motorola produce next. Itís called the Moto X and it looks very inviting, you can get it to answer your questions and the curve in its back suits your hands shape.

The Motorola Moto X measures 12.5x6.5x1cm the last figure is at the centre of the back, at the sides it is .5cm and it weights 137grams.

The case is sealed meaning the battery cannot be changed and you have no expansion possibilities as there is no micro SD card slot.

The top has a 3.5mm socket for headphones; the right side has bar buttons for on/off and a volume up and down rocker. The base has input for the supplied micro USB cable to charge it. Finally the left side has input point for a Nano SIM.

The viewable screen is 5.9x10.3cm, the display is 720x1280 the same as the Moto G. There are two cameras a low resolution offering on the face ideal for Skype etc and a rather nice 10MP offering complete with LED flash on the back for higher quality images and video.

Before I placed any files on the unit when I connected it to a PC it said it had 10.2GB of 11.8GB free.

The inbuilt speaker – near the base of the back – is rather good and gave a good volume in a quiet room, for noisier environments you headphones or earbuds.

The screen is HD and goes right to the edges and is made of Gorilla glass.

In the box you get the micro USB to USB lead, a pin type device to allow you to insert your Nano SIM and two booklets. A 16 page Health and Safety one and a fold out sheet called ‘Let’s Get Started’.

This covers the basics including using the pin to open the SIM card holder and pointing out the basic controls.

If this is to a success we will all get used to talking to our device and while people have been speaking to their phones for years now the phone answers you. So when you hear someone saying ‘OK Google Now’ they are talking to their phone and not another person.

I also loaded several movies and they played well, very sharp and crisp and the audio was excellent.

Once you get used to using the added features like ‘OK Google Now’ touch free results are possible. The use of the camera with a couple of wrist flicks is also a lot quicker than unlocking and opening.

It is stated to have an All Day Battery and I certainly could not drain it in a day.

Motorola Migrate allows you to easier transfer photos, texts SIM contacts and call history from any other IOS device using iCloud or any Android device version 2.2 or higher.

The processor has eight cores and is the Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System.

One reason you might pay more for the ‘Moto X’ over the ‘Moto G’ is that it supports Mirrorcast – the ability to display your phones screen on a TV – which the Moto G does not even though they both run Android 4.4.2.

The Motorola Moto X is available on a range of plans from Phone 4u, Carphone Warehouse and O2.

Amazon has it SIM free for £306.53 with free delivery from the link below.
