Bigger screen,faster processor 4G ready are main things I think

I have a Moto G and thinks its superb for the money !!

It also has much better cameras, and some unique features no other manufacturer is doing. Active Notifications and Always listening voice commands. YouTube search the phone to see exactly what these features are like - really cool stuff :-)

Processor and graphics are way faster, yes it's a dual core but it still significantly faster (the iPhone is also a dual core but it's still a speed demon).

Why ask the same questions on every Moto X thread? You know the answers.

Finally it's going down to a more respectable price

2 x The RAM which is important for heavy/power phone users imho.
I have a moto G but am a light user, I use my note for anything other than basic phone use.

hope I'm not sounding like a troll here but I'm not sure if you can compare the two motos. Is this phone worth the price of two ad's a half motos?

Here ya go gsmarena.com/com…601

Not if you're using the 8GB Moto G.

Shame they only stock the all black model.

The Moto Maker for the x is apparently coming to the UK in the 2nd quarter of this year. I am going to wait I think as I would love a customised X. Very happy with my G but fancy a lighter and slimmer version.

Am I the only one that thinks this is still a lot of money for the spec?? Nexus5 is bigger, better screen, faster processor, likely to have better future support and only costs a smidging more. In fact this appears to be on par if not slightly worse than the Nexus4 on paper

What are expansys like for returns ? Under dsr law ?

This is not phone for specs. Most reviews agree its a lovely phone and it is the experiance that counts as well as the screen to size ratio and some other features thrown in.

The Nexus 5 may have better specs, but I would still suggest that, for me and many others, this is a much more pleasant phone to use.

This is better than the Moto G in every way - better build quality, better camera, faster, more RAM. It might not match the Nexus 5 on paper either but it certainly beats it for build quality and feels no slower. It also has a better camera than either the G or the N5 and a MUCH better loudspeaker than the puny one on the Nexus. Features like trusted Bluetooth devices and voice control can probably be hacked onto the Nexus or Moto G but the X has a special co-processor and special low-power always-on mic for the purpose so won't suffer the same battery drain. This really is a lovely phone.

I'm so tempted.. been looking at this phone for a long time. Great price! I can't justify purchase though.

It has specially made Qualcomm Optimized Dalvik

But it haz more cors!

While the Moto G is a sublime phone for the price of it, there are still small annoyances and glitches present in the lightly skinned OS that Motorola have on the device. Constant graphical hiccups when navigating the GUI etc, and random freezes. Happened on a daily basis for me, so I've gone back to the Note 2 from the £220 amazon deal on here earlier.

Also worth mentioning that the touchscreen on the Moto G isnt very responsive or accurate, but its still better than most phones in that price range by quite some distance in that regard.

Moto X is undoubtedly a lot better than the G. Design, Camera, Screen, build quality, etc, are all improved. Plus extra software features like being able to check notifications without turning the whole screen on thanks to OLED tech.

Only power users will see any real difference outside of screen size though. Bugs and annoyances aside, the Moto G is a very fast phone due to its stock nature. Certainly faster than the Note 2 I replaced it with, but only when running KitKat vs the Note 2's stagnant 4.3.

Go away and come back when you have passed Mobile Phone Tech 101.

Apologies striker123 my comment wasn't aimed at you but mynameisthehulk.

Google owns Motorola, so future support will be the same as the nexus.

As for being smaller, not every has hands like shovels or pockets like wind socks. It's the motion of the ocean, not the size of the boat that matters, especially to an experienced captain..

No they don't they've been sold to Lenovo

Google sold Motorola on to Lenovo and there are no guarantees that future support will be the same as under Google.

Strange saying and completely out of context. The Nexus 5 is 8mm longer and 4mm wider so not exactly a big difference. And being an experienced captain myself I can conclude that my money would be spent more wisely on the Nexus 5

Bought it 3 days ago from them @ £279. Just emailed them to ask for a refund.

the comparison to 2 & 1/2 Moto G's isn't quite right, as the X has 16gb memory. I think the Moto G 16gb (SIM unlocked) is nearer £150 - so this 'X' deal has around a £100 premium over the equivalent G.

I guess the question is, is the X worth the extra £100? It does get you a bigger screen, thinner & lighter body, better camera, double the RAM, Amoled display, voice control & motion active camera.

Seems to be a good deal to me! Heat added.

I have the Moto G and its a great phone not to big or to small, and imo the camera is fine takes good shots.

Don't get duped by manufacturer's marketing bull s**t. The number of cores in a chip does not give any indication on real world performance or even benchmarking performance. Nor does the speed i.e. the stated GHz. Processor chips are a complex beast that have many many attributes and features. All of these play together to determine the real world performance. A better way to determine how good a processor is, is to look up reviews of the specific processor/handset used and benchmarking reviews. Even benchmarking scores can be misleading as manufacturer's have been known to artificially boost handset performance when detecting a benchmarking application is running so sometimes the best way is to read about reviews that performance test using real world scenarios and applications.

I agree. Benchmarks mean absolutely nothing to the individual when it comes to smartphones. Its purely about bragging rights. Most if not all OEMs ramp up the CPU and GPU to max to get the best scores achievable. Put simply this phone is not going to lag at all in any way and neither is any phone that has been released in 2013 and onwards. Your better off reading or watching reviews of the phone, the reviewers will talk about any lag that exists.

The number of cores, GHZ etc doesn't matter or impact performance as much as manufactures think. Optimisation matters more.
