Review: Motorola Moto X Pure Edition

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  2  

I genuinely like the Motorola Moto X Pure Edition and see plenty of value in what it offers.

First, no other company lets you customize the appearance of your phone to the extent Motorola does. The handset comes in an attractive variety of finishes, materials, and colors, and Motorola does a good job putting it all together.

The phone handles the basics well. The screen is good, call quality is decent, wireless performance is excellent, and battery life is well above average. The base Android operating system performs flawlessly on the Moto X, and Motorola's tasteful software additions make the Moto X an intuitive and useful companion. Motorola made significant gains with the camera this year. It's not the best-ever, but it finally performs at a level befitting the phone's price point.

Speaking of which, that's where the Moto X's real value rests. The phone costs $399 (for the base configuration), which is $250 less than many competing devices. Adding extra storage capacity and leather/wood materials boosts the price a bit, but you're still looking at a phone that's $200 cheaper than its peers.

The Moto X offers about 85% of the performance of Samsung's Galaxy Note 5 or the iPhone 6s Plus, for less than 2/3 the price. That's a bargain in my book.
