The Moto X is a solid upgrade from the Moto G. A £380 price tag doesn’t have as big a “wow” factor as the £135 Moto G but it’s still a great price for what’s on offer. The Moto X has a faster processor, better camera and a refined design. What more...

The Moto X may not boast hardware as impressive as its high-end counterparts, but it's still a choice buy. For one thing, it doesn't really have any major, deal-breaking flaws (that's rare on a mid-range phone); instead it has tons of advantages. Plus,...

Thanks to the internet, sources within factories, leaky manufacturing chains and phone company workers who leave their as-yet-unreleased handsets in the pub, there arent many surprises in the mobile marketplace these days. It was a welcome revelation,...

Despite some flaws, I really like the Moto X. It has a lot of charm and offers up a great Android experience. Motorola has brought all its engineering expertise to bear and it shows in how well the phone is constructed and how thoughtfully the software...

Picking a smartphone is tough as the market is saturated and it's a long term commitment. Contracts with devices included range from 12 months to 24 months so you have to choose wisely. With the major mobile manufacturers gearing up to launch their 2014...

Motorola has recently been working to bring Android back to its roots by removing the bloat and junk added by manufacturers to leave you with a brilliant phone that works exactly as Google intended. But does the Moto X achieve this? Agent Plummer finds...

We are happy to see that Motorola has not lost its spirit for innovation, and again proves that one can show even smartphone moguls that there is still some room for improvement with clever ideas. "Active Display" is a very useful feature, and can...

With the latest version of Android on board, as well as a bold screen and a good camera, the Motorola Moto X is a decent all-round phone. The Moto G has all this though, and costs half as much. Without the wide choice of colours the Moto X has in the US,...

Now it's finally hit the UK, we review the Motorola Moto X, and ask how it compares with the Moto G and the Nexus 5 from Google... Motorola launched its snazzy Moto X handset States-side last year, but us Brits had to make do with the cut-price Moto G...

The Motorola Moto X's slightly disappointing internal specifications are by and large balanced out by its close to untouched Android 4.4 KitKat operating system and useful software additions. However, you can still get better value for money...

What is the Motorola Moto X? The Motorola Moto X is the more expensive, more powerful brother of the Moto G , our budget phone of the year 2013. It is a totally different proposition, though. It costs £380 SIM-free, similar to the current best deal for...

The Moto G is the problem with the Moto X. Basically, Motorola made such an incredible value handset that its more expensive offering would have to be something truly special in order to compete. Perhaps if you were to take into account the...

In one sense, nothing has changed since our initial Moto X review based on our US experience of this phone. But that was six months ago and pre-Nexus 5. Times have changed, but our soft spot for this phone hasn't. We still do wholeheartedly...

The Motorola Moto X is a curious creation. On the one hand it has a handful of innovative and genuinely useful features which really help it stand out from the crowd, but on the other hand it really is a bit underpowered given the £380 price tag. If...

Motorola has come up with a respectable phone in the Moto X, but it's far too late to the party, and it just costs too much. It's also too similar to its even lower cost sibling, the Moto G, sharing the same screen resolution, shape and nearly the...
