The first expression of the new Motorola, the Moto X for AT&T is the first smartphone to meet your desire for responsiveness with the best delivery of Google services. It's faster because it hears your voice and responds with Google Now. It tells you what you need to know, even when you're not touching it. You'll also be able to stay informed without constantly turning on your phone thanks to the new ultra-low power notification system.
Pick it up, and the Moto X is curved to fit your hand. With a twist of your wrist, it becomes your camera. Use a simple gesture to instantly launch the 10-megapixel rear camera without unlocking the phone. An easy-to-use interface allows you to capture images faster -- just touch anywhere on the screen to snap a photo and quickly shoot a burst of photos. The comfortable Moto X features a custom shaped battery that filled the curved space and powers your Moto X through a whole day.
Running the Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system, the Moto X is powered by the Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System, which includes a software optimized Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro (1.7 GHz Dual-Core Krait CPU, quad-core Adreno 320 GPU), a natural language processor, and a contextual computing processor.
The Moto X has 16 GB of internal storage, and its 2200 mAh battery provides up to 13 hours of talk time and 10 days (240 hours) of standby time.
Never Miss a Shot
The Moto X allows you to go from pocket to picture in just a few seconds, so you'll never miss a shot again. Whether your Moto X is in your pocket or already in use, just twist your wrist twice and it's ready to shoot. And because you can touch anywhere on the screen, it only takes one hand -- and just a few seconds -- to capture a perfect shot. The embedded Clear Pixel technology collects more light and snaps pictures up to twice as fast as other phone's cameras, so you can capture the darkest scenes or stop motion blur in bright light.
The 10-megapixel rear camera has a 16:9 aspect ratio and can shoot video at up to Full HD 1080p resolution at 30 fps (frames per second) with slow motion. It also features auto HDR, a panorama option, photo burst, and a 4x digital zoom.
The Moto X responds to your voice, without you having to touch it. You just have to say: "OK Google Now" and give it a command. You can check messages, set an alarm, get directions, find out the weather, or do just about anything. With just a little training in a quiet room, your Moto X learns to recognize your voice. Then it knows you, even when everyone's talking at once. And thanks to the super low-power natural language processor, your Moto X is always ready with a quick response.

Even when it seems to be sleeping, your Moto X is paying attention. Instead of a blinking light that doesn't actually tell you anything, information quietly appears on the screen. You don't have to wake your phone to look at the time or see your messages. But the active display is also smart enough to know when it's in your pocket or when it's placed face down so it won't deliver notifications, saving on battery power. As soon as you take it out of your pocket or turn it over, it discretely pulses with the time and any notifications you've received.
When you need a little more info, just touch the notification icon and details will appear on the top and bottom of the screen. Drag the icon up and the app associated with the notification will open. Drag the icon left or right to make them all go away.

AT&T's 4G Network
AT&T boasts the largest 4G mobile broadband network in the United States, covering more than 292 million people with a combination of two layers of 4G technology: the 4G LTE (Long Term Evolution) network and an older technology called HSPA+ that delivers near-4G speeds. AT&T's 4G LTE network is currently live in 261 markets across the U.S. (as of May, 2013) with more markets continually being added. AT&T expects to cover 300 million people with its 4G LTE network by the end of 2014.
With 4G LTE technology, you'll get mobile Internet speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G, enabling you to upload a photo in 6 seconds, download a song in 4 seconds, and download HD movies in minutes and apps almost instantly. You can expect average download data rates of 13 megabits per second (Mbps) and 6 Mbps for uploads in real-world, loaded network environments.
If you are not in an area served by 4G LTE, you'll be able to connect to AT&T's HSPA+ enhanced backhaul network, which delivers speeds up to 4x faster than AT&T's HSPA 3G network. With the combination of 4G LTE and HSPA+, you'll enjoy higher data speed averages than other networks.
In areas where either AT&T's 3G or 4G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways.

This is absolutely the best Android phone, and I'd say simply best mobile phone, to date.
Since the Galaxy Nexus, I'm convinced that the plain, unmodified Android 4.x OS is the best way to experience an Android phone. The plain OS is fast, and elegant in design. Unfortunately, the Galaxy Nexus hardware was a bit flakey and dated, and the Moto X was the closest to a Nexus phone I can get for VZW. There are a few Motorola specific apps preinstalled, but they are worth it when viewing the phone as a complete system.
First, the phone itself - I love the design - the size, curve, feel and weight are just right. Even though it's not a hyped up metal case, the phone feels solid and fits nicely in the hand (I've actually had a hard time putting it down). The default Black "weave" color looks awesome. The phone is slightly smaller than the Galaxy Nexus, and shows that the trend of bigger smart phones does not equate to a "better" smartphone - just bigger. The display is certainly large enough, and looks very sharp and bright. More importanly, the Moto X fits easily in any pocket, and likely just about any hand. The phone is very responsive and quick at the OS, application, and network levels (especially if using wireless AC). Voice recognition is spot on, and works even when the phone is "sleeping". Battery life with general usage seems at least enough to last through most of a day - the battery isn't removable, but it's slightly larger than the "extended" life battery I had in the Galaxy Nexus, and the phone has been lasting between charges longer than the Nexus with the extended battery did.Read more ›
-Long battery life
-Feels great in my hand
-Quick, responsive touch
-Polished, minimal bugs
History (feel free to skip it if you don't care, my feelings shall survive):
Some quick history on myself and my smartphone usage. I have an Electrical Engineering background, so, while I'm not brilliant by any measure (I never worked as an enginerd), but I am marginally competent when speaking of electrical devices. Back in yesteryear (2007) I had a Blackberry 8800 - a great phone - for a year or so before I bought the game changer: the original iPhone. I've been a dedicated iPhone user since even though I hate most other things Apple makes and love Google with all my heart and soul. I briefly ventured into the world of Android once trading in my iPhone 3G for the HTC Rezound and switched back within months. Why? The Rezound had a beautiful screen, great camera, sounded great, came with amazing headphones, and was a good size. Unfortunately, it was also extremely buggy, had to be charged a few times a day, came with power hog HTC Sense, and was not terribly responsive.
Comparison of Phones:
Apple releases iOS7 and pulls a Windows Vista, making my iPhone 4S slow, decreasing its battery life, and making it less intuitive. My decision to go to Android was simple, but picking the hardware wasn't easy. My choice was between the GS4, the Moto X, and a short wait for the new Nexus 5. I hate Samsung phones. They're huge, they feel cheap, the battery life is poor, and they have a ton of unnecessary Samsung software that hinders the Android experience. I considered the GS4 because of all the positive reviews, but it's just not for me.Read more ›
What's nice about this product?
-Display is crisp and clear. Some of the fonts appear that they are popping out of the screen.
-Google Play is (in my opinion) better than iTunes. You can upload 20,000 of your own songs to their cloud for free.
-Call quality is better than iPhone.
-Battery life is great.
-Now all my Google Apps really work (i.e. Gmail, Calendar, Drive, etc.).
-Size is just right (not too big, not too small).
-Built in USA! Yes, the parts are from all over the globe, but that's the world we live in. I'm glad that I can buy some tech gear that is made here.
What could be better about this product?
-I do miss the home button at times. I'm always looking for a way to get back to the screen when it goes dark; especially when i'm finishing a call.
-Phone could come with earbuds. For some reason Motorola wants to charge separately for that. Gotta love Apple for handing out decent earbuds.
In the end, I would buy this product again...
I originally purchased the Samsung Galaxy S4, which is a great phone, however, with all the advanced specs, it lagged a bit. I don't care what anyone says, it lagged. Too much bloatware, etc..
Moto X, you also get 50GB cloud space on Google Drive. And also, if you purchase phone via Amazon, they give you some cloud space on their Amazon cloud as well (I think 80GB space).
