Readers like MrFancyPants certainly liked the way it looks, admiring its "premium feel," while DownGoesFrazier noticed it "fits perfectly in my hand." It also slipped into dicenzo's pocket quite easily, and WoodyH finds he can't "go out in public without people wanting to fondle my phone." Indeed, many users certainly thought it was worth the attention, with pramopu calling it "fabulous," while WoodyH simply says it's "the best-looking smartphone."
Those best-in-class looks certainly extend to the display as well, with guigreg liking its "amazing colors and brightness" and BinZ was pleased to see that the color was "not noticeably oversaturated." Pramopu says it's "one of the best available." The speakers are not too shabby either, with colonelpackage calling the audio quality excellent.
Sure, the phone looks and feels good, but how well does it work on a daily basis? Quite well, in fact, with WoodyH praising its "lightning fast and smooth" operation and useful software features. MrFancyPants likes how you don't even need to touch the device at all thanks to the new voice commands, and thinks replacing the notification light with Moto Actions was "a great move."
Unfortunately, not everything was sunshine and roses for our users. They agreed with our assessment of the camera, finding it suitable for instances like taking pictures of roses in the sunshine -- but only barely. MrFancyPants says it's "not good" in low light, and even just "okay" outdoors, while TheRydad found it "quite passable," but still pretty "meh" overall. The battery life fared a little better, getting WoodyH through a full day "easily" and BinZ says it's "OK for regular usage," but DownGoesFrazier says that heavy users might be "better off" with the Droid Turbo.
If you're not a heavy user, though, you'll probably be perfectly happy with the Moto X. DownGoesFrazier says it's a real "pleasure" and colonelpackage just appreciates using it, while TheRydad goes so far as calling it "the best phone I have owned."
