MOTO X. GOT WOOD?

MOTO X. GOT WOOD?
#Google #GoogleMotorola #MotoX

Good evening, Synapse Circuit Readers! How are you tonight? It’s official... Today was the hottest day of the year! Gosh! Here’s the latest on the Moto X...

SPEC
Well, the spec contains no real surprises... There’s nothing we didn’t already know apart from the exact size of the screen, 4.7”.

SCREEN
Moto X has a 4.7” display AMOLED display with a 720p HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels) with 312ppi.
CAMERA
The 10MP camera uses a technology called Clear Pixel, which promises to let in 75 percent more light for more accurate sunlight and night time photos. Could the Clear Pixel concept be a cross between HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4? You can shake the Moto X to wake up its camera.

OPERATING SYSTEM
Motorola's X runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and not 4.3. As you'd expect, Moto X leans closer to stock Android, with three on-screen capacitive navigation controls. However, there are some elements that are all Motorola's own.
The active display element called Peek is the most obvious. Notifications pop up on the lock screen; holding the alert bubble brings up more details, like the message interior, even when the phone is locked. Sliding up opens the app.
PROCESSOR
Moto X uses the same X8 processor as Verizon's new Motorola trio. Essentially, the X8 is a mashup of a customized 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset and two digital signal processors. Motorola claims this helps keep power consumption very low.

BATTERY
Motorola says the 2,200mAH battery yields 24 hours of battery life, compared to Samsung's 2,600mAh battery, which will last a full work day, but will definitely not tick on for a full trip around the clock.
Motorola has excelled at long-life batteries in its recent phones, so it's safe to expect this one to deliver.

PRICE & AVAILABILITY
Five U.S. carriers will launch with the Moto X: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular. You can buy the 16 GB model in all-white or all-black in store, for $199 with a 2 year contract (T-Mobile's off-contract price will vary.)
If you're buying a custom unit through the Moto Maker Web site, you can also choose a 32GB version for $249 with a 2-year contract. Carriers will announce their exact availability for the end of August and early September range. Unlocked versions will also make an appearance in the future.
Interestingly, AT&T customers will be the U.S. users who can access Moto Maker.
What do you reckon?   

Take good care!
