    The Moto X is great. Too bad it doesnt have a SD card slot and a high resolution like the competitors. Also, it kind of looks a bit cheap and the sensor placement at the top of the phone looks odd.

    So much hype, so much promise, so many disappointments.

    The exclusive deals ruin what should have been a great launch. I'm not switching carriers just to customize a phone. And with no SD card AND a model with a reasonable amount of storage exclusive to one carrier... total, utter fail.

    Google seriously needs to get over their SD card phobia. And if they want to make any measurable difference, they need to stop exclusivity.

    I was very interested in this, but now, I could care less.
     
  6. No SD card. That kinda hurts. Also, forgive me if I missed it in the article, but does the phone come rooted and with a SIM card slot? My hope with the Google phone was 'open' for me to use how I want. The exclusivity has me concerned. Am I going to get a phone with a bunch of bloatware that I will end up voiding my contract by rooting in order to clean it up?
     
  7. Hope most of the software customization's show up in next Nexus 4.

    I think the SD card slots thickness will take away from that "ergonomic feel" lol.
