Motorola Moto X (2014) review
Last year, Motorola had a good phone, but it wasn’t good enough. This time around, the company learned from its mistakes, and came out swinging with one of the best Android phones ever made. The new Moto X has the specs, design, performance chops, and user experience to rival and surpass the best from Samsung, HTC, and even Apple. There really isn’t anything that other smartphones have that’s missing from this year’s Moto X. It’s a great looking device that’s a joy to use. It’s the premium flagship smartphone that was missing from Motorola’s lineup last year.
But having the best smartphone doesn’t necessarily guarantee sales (just ask HTC), and Motorola is going up against the juggernaut marketing efforts of Samsung and Apple. It will soon have a new parent in Lenovo once its transition over from Google ownership is complete, and it will need all the help it can get to have people considering the Moto X as an option when looking for a high-end phone.
