Cool feature, won't work for Ozzy
I wonder how well it would work if you are at an auction, or playing battleship. Plus, you have those annoying friends who will just shout out random numbers. I don't see any practicality for a feature like this. Zero.

Motorola - Idiots.
With google owning them they should have taken over by now. They have the best radios / reception / build quality in general, but they are mentally ill about updating their expensive phones.
But instead of flooding the google play store with unlocked stock devices with no crapware at a great price, they continue to suck-off losers like Veriscum, losers that lock phones and losers that charge confiscatory rates for international roaming. Losers.
And this rubbish with lines of phones that are Vz exclusive, how lame.
Yawn at motorola, get off the bench and start winning again with google behind you and UPDATE YOUR PHONES to 4.4 and STOP BEING A WHIMP.

".... she has a good personality."
Eric, you really did not just say that...
Wow, that was bit of a back handed compliment there.
I am not a fan of Motorola, nor their line up of Android device that are consistently 8-12 months behind the curve. Come to think of it that "Curve" is about the only phone that they are ahead of.
Needless to say I wont be getting this device I have not had a good thing to say about moto since their "smart-looking" phone back in 2006 the Moto Q with Windows 5.0.. this phone was the 1st qwerty style smart device that was at the $99 with contract price point and was the beginning of the end for Palm and now Blackberry...
The UN-educated snapped this phone up due to the attractive price despite its overwhelming shortcomings compared to o... (continues)

$299 for this phone is an absolute steal
Even if it's a CDMA based device, it's VERY quick and has a ton of features for what it is - yes it's a dual core, but when looking at benchmarks and general perception, those 1.7Ghz dual cores are ALWAYS running at full capacity; ready to go - versus the GS4 which is always stepping itself down to save power.

A $200 price tag on a device Google, Motorola and analysts have all stated will soon be $100 in weeks... combined with the WORST NETWORK in the Western Hemisphere is just a bad combination. Who would want this mix? Why bother?
I don't understand this. If I don't care about specs, I own an iPhone. If I care about personalization, I buy a case for it, which allows me to swap out the appearance of my phone far more often than my contract. And because it's a case, my penchant for bizarre colors won't effect my resale value.
(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.
over in the "Motorola Intros Skip, Easier Security for the Moto X" discussion:
Sounds highly secure...
Just what we need, a device to make "device security a little easier". They should put the NFC tag on the back of a smart cover, then it can just unlock whenever I open the flip, that whole locking and unlocking with my finger thing is just too inconvenient.
