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.

"All three of these competitors (ONE, S4, 5S) have better hardware specs, and perhaps some superior individual features here and there. What does the Motorola Moto X have that they don't? A personality."
To me, this story is similar to v.games competition between the Wii, PS3 and Xbox 360 gen. While Sony and Microsoft where focusing on game graphics, it was Nintendo who re-wrote the way users interact with their videogames. Now, that technology has been implemented in the competitiors gaming platforms, while Nintendo is still behind in graphics. I think the same will... (continues)
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.
