Moto X Pure Edition review: The third time really is the charm

Other devices might have a slight performance edge over the new Moto X, but the Pure Edition still manages to feel like the most elegant of the cheap-good smartphones we've seen this year. Among other things, we appreciate its stylish, customizable design, much-improved camera, expandable memory and, just as important, its near-stock version of Android and Motorola's useful software add-ons.

Pros
  • Sleek, customizable design
  • Greatly improved camera
  • Thoughtful Moto software tricks
  • Expandable memory
  • Works on every US carrier
Cons
  • Fast, but not quite asfast as some of itsrivals
  • Mediocre battery life
  • Camera still isn't great in low light
