Motorola plan to turn their fortunes around with this smartphone since it was bought by Google.

It collects information and does tasks like setting up alarms, doing currency conversions and even fixing appointments.

An AMOLED screen has been put on the Moto X by Motorola. Such displays can be utilized to selectively display info without interfering with the smartphones battery life in any way. This screen, which was first seen on Nokia smartphones, enables you to view notifications for calls, messages, current time and other events, without unlocking the phone.
-Ability to be customized
The smartphone’s body can be customized with 18 different back covers. The covers have separate color accents for the rings around the camera lenses and the volume off/on buttons. A personal message can also be etched at the smartphones rear.
-Authentication using wireless devices
The smartphone can be set to authenticate whenever a trusted Bluetooth device has been connected or in case the smartphone is adjacent to paired devices such as a Bluetooth headset and a computer. This way you wont have to unlock the phone each time. For instance, if your Bluetooth enabled speaker or laptop is around, your phone will instantly recognize it is in a trusted environment, and it eliminated the need to unlock the phone manually.
Other features included in the Moto X are its 8X multiprocessor, that couples a 1.7 GHZ dual core Qualcomm Snapdragon S 4 pro processor with a contextual computing processor, a quad core graphics processor, as well as a natural language processor, 2GB of RAM to make multitasking not only slick but also fast, 32 or 16GB of inbuilt memory that can be expanded using a microSD, and Android to optimize its speed. Similarly to the Android used in the Moto G, the one used in the Moto X closely resembles the software that Google offers. Motorola have worked tirelessly to focus on maximum optimization when it comes to software. The main reason behind this is to ensure that you as the consumer have a smooth and lag free experience when using the Moto X.

In a nutshell, even though this phone doesn’t have sky high specifications, it still outshines its competitors with new features such as the advanced voice control.
