Motorola is a latecomer to Indian smartphone market but they’re having a very enjoyable time since they’ve launched Moto- G smartphone. Now the follower to Moto family has arrived and got hit the Indian market few days ago named MOTO- X. I know few of you people have already ordered and some might be using it. However here’s a short review for the Motorola X smartphone.
Design & Looks
Dimensions 129.3 x 65.3 x 10.4 mm (5.09 x 2.57 x 0.41 in) tells you a rough idea of how your smartphone will feel inside your hands. Although the phone has its overall structure made in plastic and the case too, the volume rockers and the Power/Lock buttons are made of metal and it is very nice as it feels nice and very easy to access. Just like in Moto G, this one also has Back, Home and Task Switcher keys are all part of the screen.
Here’s a quick overview of hardware specifications:
AMOLED capacitive touch, 16M colors 720 x 1280 pixels, 4.7 inches (~312 ppi pixel density) display
- 10 MP, 4320 x 2432 pixels, autofocus camera with LED flash
- Dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor
- Adreno 320 GPU clocked at 400MHz
- Accelerometer, gyro, proximity, compass, barometer (pressure sensor) , temperature sensors
- Li-Ion 2200 mAh battery
- 16/32 GB internal storage space, no memory card slot
- 2 GB RAM
As evident it carries a 720p display but don’t let down by the numbers. The phone display is too good even in direct sunlight at peek brightness. It offers 321 ppi and the text and images appear crisp.
The adreno 320 is pretty fast and advanced graphics processor which is very rare on a phone that’s prices less than 25K. The 1.7GHz dual core snapdragon S4 processor will not let your phone down for a second even if you are having high level multitasking.
The camera department is a bit disappointing BTW as in Moto G , the 10 MP camera does not bring extra ordinary pictures Outdoor photos just seems nice but the low light ones are just like from an ordinary camera. However colours are balanced and true.
The phone has a nearly stock android software but no skins (Android OS, v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), upgradable to v4.4 (KitKat)). This may be an attempt to avoid bloatwares that come along with it. The phone has very good voice recognition engine, the speciality is Google Now is turned on always on this phone. You just don’t have to make your hands move to make a voice command.
The overall performance of this device is excellent when the price is concerned. A quad core processor and a better camera is expected but the phone delivers unmatched performance to any other android phones near this price tag. The phone is a real snatch for Rs 23,999.
