I own this phone and it is awesome. I owned from Nexus 5 to LG G2 to this phone and have briefly used Fire Phone, Moto G1 3g and Moto G2 4g while setting them up to my friend and family and this blows them all out of the water.

The phone is designed really nicely and fits in your hand perfectly, it is hard to describe if you haven't tried it but it makes life with this relatively big screen phone much easier.

It has a bunch of features which are awesome and actually useful such as always listening (you don't need the screen on for this to work) and the screen turns on by waving in front of it, I don't remember when I have last used the power button to turn the phone on.

Really you might consider these things like gimmicks but I don't think I could live without them unless I really had to. These are just things that first come to mind there are a lot of nice small touches that make this phone great.

If you look at the specs and reviews there are 2 negatives most people mention.
First is camera. While initially camera was rather frantic and the quality was a bit of an hit or miss, they fixed it with a few updates and right now I am happy with it, it is about as good as lg g2's was.
Second is battery life which isn't awesome but gets me through the day easily (leaving about 10% when I go to bed) I also have a fast charger and it is fully charged in 45 minutes and will get you to 70% in about 20 minutes which is really good.

Ibood are ok company, you won't get the phone tomorrow but you will get it. I got mine on the 320£ offer by motorola and I am very happy with my purchase.

Great price, I got mine from German eBay for a similar price but with leather back. Fantastic phone.

This should be hotter - 4% Quidco/TCB available too.

Have some heat. Great phone.

Heat from me, great price.

I was going to pull the trigger on this, but then realised it only has 16GB of on board storage and no SD card slot.

So long to dispatch. Been waiting for this phone to go below £300 somewhere in the UK.

Yep.. Me too!

Great deal,if it meets your needs.Best source of information for mobile I think is here:Your text here.If it had 32Gb or a card slot I would have bought one,sadly not.Only real concern would be battery life,might not be an issue with the quick charger though.

Really find it hard to understand why Manufacturers produce flagships then cripple them with 8/16GB of storage. Yes, enjoy that 4k recording...for 30 seconds until the memory is full. Want to play the latest games, errrrmmm, well maybe one or two in that memory. Isn't memory dirt cheap nowadays ?

Superb handset - gets great reviews.

Awesome phone... no gimmicks but everything works....

Heat as it's a deal but not for me because, even ignoring HD videos, 16gb and no SD card just doesn't work anymore.

Good phone but battery life isn't the best. Preferred the body of the 2013 version to be honest

Great Phone but opted for the Nexus 6 as my upgrade from original Moto X similar to hold as my old Note 1.

Heat added, this is a great price for a Bamboo Moto X.

Better off with European lg g3. roughly same price but more ram, better screen and double the storage.

Had this phone in leather since December. Really great phone, don't think i can live without hovering my hand over my phone to check my notifications!

Link didn't work for me... direct link: ibood.com/uk/…tml

shame only 16Gb version avialble

Actually less space works better now than it used to, what with 4g/cloud storage/netflix/spotify... admittedly you'd need an unlimited usage mobile contract to make all that possible!

I find it hard to understand how it is an upgrade to go to Moto X 2014 from LG G2.

And a reliable connection. And be willing to have no content on holiday. Or in the plane. Etc etc.

Cloud storage is all well and good. But it doesn't hold up in all scenarios ....

Oh, and the constant network use will also worsen battery life.

Ordered something else from them, needed to cancel before shipping as our would take too long. Refund done through international back transfer no matter how you paid and they sent it as Euros rather than pounds so currently having a nightmare chasing them.

Just steer clear.

Best phone I ever owned in my entire life.

Super phone

I'm also coming from a G2 and really like the sound of the Moto X.

But I don't know if I could justify it. In most areas the phones are very close, same size screen, almost identical internals, very similar cameras.I love the slim bezels of the G2 and the rear buttons, but I do like the sound of the more curvy Moto X and the natural materials.

So in terms of specs there seems no difference, except for the decrease in battery life, I do enjoy the fact that my G2 can last two days if needed. So does the hand feel and moto features really blow the G2 away?

I do slightly miss Moto assist from my old Moto G and I can see the advantages of Moto Voice and Moto Display, are they really game changers in how you use your phone?


Does anyone have this with the bamboo back? Any issues?

Isn't this expired?

Avoid! Rubbish battery.....

Sorry I expired it at work but it didn't seem to react...

Lack of storage is more a concern than its battery Imo! Surprised they even still sell 16gb high spec phones.
