After essentially leaking every spec possibly imaginable, the fruit of Motorola's Google-ized loins is finally here. And just as promised, it's a colorful, smooth beauty to behold. Which is great, but the real test comes with what it's packing under the hood. Can the Moto X keep up with the smartphone market's toughest competitors?
One area in which it immediately falls short is pixel density. At 316 pixels per square inch, it's dragging behind pretty much every other flagship smartphone out there (coming close only to the iPhone 5's 326 and Nexus 4's 320). On the other hand, though, pixels have become so packed together that, at this point, anyone who claims to notice any significant difference is lying. Its 2200 mAh Li-ion battery holds its own in the group, and as with most phones, it completely destroys the iPhone's measly 1440 mAh. At its thickest point, the Moto X measures in at a hefty 0.4 inches, but remember, this thing is super curved. At its thinnest, you're holding a mere 0.2 inches of phone. Which as we note in our hands on, feels great to hold.
So from first impressions alone, this phone is pretty damn impressive. Time will be the ultimate test, but we have a good feeling the Moto X will pull through with flying colors.
