After months of waiting and hundreds of rumours about the next flagship from Motorola after being acquired by Google, the Moto X is finally revealed. From above it seems like the Moto X is a awesome phone, with it’s blend of what both Motorola and Google have to offer.

Sure it can be customized in thousands of different ways, and you can control the device without even touching it or activate the camera with a simple gesture.


That seems all fine and dandy, but there has been a lack of positive feedback and Motorola hasn’t done anything wrong. Having the ability to customize your phone in a number of different ways sounds like a awesome idea, and it is something that no other manufacturer is offering today.

The feature should be enough to make people want to pay the money to customize their phone to make it their own and completely different from their friends. However we have reached a point that the specs of the device are treated with more respect than some of the feature or selling points.


Everyone expected that the Moto X would be some super fancy high-end Android flagship smartphone but that isn’t how it turned out to be. The Moto X was simply put down only because the specs that it had weren’t up to par to everyone’s expectations.

A device shouldn’t always be judged just because it may have a quad-core processor while other new phones have octa-core processors. Sure the Moto X has mid-range phone specs, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get one.

We’re at a point in the tech industry where “nothing is ever good enough” and that is saying something. This attitude makes everything seem boring or not fun any more. We shouldn’t judge a phone by what’s underneath but instead by how it works for us.

That will make any device, much more appreciated and respected.
