Hands-On: MOTO X
I'm totally confused
(And although many cases are lame, there are some pretty damn cool ones out there for the iPhone.)
Or, to sum it up with more direct competition, the Galaxy lets you peel off the back cover and put on a new one at will.
No microSD and None Removable Battery = BAD
I've already almost maxed out my current 32Gb microSD card and need to buy a 64Gb one. And with phones lacking a microSD slot, you have to share the memory with applications and system resources.
And Cloud Storage isn't a viable alternative since a fast network connection isn't always available. Plus, since most carriers no longer have unlimited data plans, you would have to PAY to access YOUR OWN content (pictures, videos, music, documents) via the Cloud.
Great for the Carriers. Not so great for the customers.
Where is it an advantage to a consumer to spend 700-900 dollars on a phone that you can't service or replace the weakest link?

Should be $99 with a contract
I was surprised at the specs, which are nearly identical to the N4 (which has been out for almost a year).
If Moto had S4 / HTC One specs on this device, it would have been worth the hype. Now, not so ...
Was hoping this might be an Android to get me back into Androids.
I expected less
I fully expected this phone with all of its mid-range specs and Woodside's comments to be in the $0-99 on contract and $299-$349 outright. Google does a good job of delivering value for money with the Nexus line. Why they aren't following the same path with this phone is beyond me. I fully expect that when iSupply or one of the others does a teardown on the X phone, it will have a BOM price at least 20% less than an iPhone/SGS4/HTC M7. If that's the case, then I guess Google's mantra of not being evil doesn...

Man, this phone sucks...
want excitement? wait for Samsung!
they always put new features in their newest phones!
I dont know - this phone just.. doesn't look right. There is something about it that just makes it completley unappealing to me. Anybody else think this phone is just plain ugly?
