disappointing

As I type this from my original moto x I'm saddened to learn Motorola sold out to "bigger".

On the plus side I am glad that they give the option to be done with that annoying " OK Google Now" phrase....I have not used that great voice control feature because of that.

Not sure what the complaint was with the original camera but I thought it was great. I think the twist to activate feature could have activated more quickly but the pics were good.

And to say the original X felt cheap doesn't make sense...I chose it over the LG and Galaxy line because it felt more solid and quality built.

I'll still be getting the new X if it comes to Sprint
I didn't think it felt cheap, but Motorola said that's some of the feedback they received from consumers.
The original camera was kind of lousy- it was super grainy and had really terrible white balance.

That said, the original X was a terrific phone (if sadly unreliable.)
I'm with you, Joel. Very disappointing that Motorola went with the ultra big size. Everyone's running to those bigger sizes, and although I understand that there is where they probably make the most profit, it's still a shame that Motorola should not ...

It's pretty big.

It's technically only 0.8mm deep, but it feels like a bottomless pit to my finger.

I prefer the dimple, too, but I think you'd get used to the new "pit" pretty quickly. I can't think of any good reason it should be a deal-break...

new sample photos

I just added some additional camera samples.
thanks for the additional pics... .low light shots are not great. Looks like the zoom pics were hit and miss

Ear piece volume?

My biggest complaint with the original X is the ear piece volume. I cannot get it loud enough to hear clearly in most situations and I have to use the speaker phone. It gets frustrating

Have you had a chance to test the volume? If so, how does it compare to the original?
