Moto X to go on sale tomorrow starting Rs 23,999

Motorola has been off to a flyer after launching the Moto G in India in its second stint in the country. The device has been getting simply amazing volumes and this has prompted the company to bring the Moto X to India as well. It will go on sale exclusively on at a price of Rs 23,999 for the regular 16GB variant and Rs 25,999 for wooden back 16GB variant. Only the 16GB variant is coming to India.

Let us take a look at its specifications:

  • 4.7 inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels
  • 1.7Ghz dual core Snapdragon S4 Pro is present under the hood
  • 2GB RAM
  • It runs on Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Internal storage capacity stands at 16GB which is non-expandable
  • 10MP Clear Pixel camera at the rear which is joined in by a 2MP front facing camera
  • Connectivity features are 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS with GLONASS and NFC
  • 22oo mAh battery unit
  • Rs 23,999

It will be available in 5 colour option and two wooden back colour options. Flipkart will launch the device with a slew of offers which include Rs 1000 cashback on EMI plan, 70 percent off on cases and 10 lucky customers will get the device for free. Moto X has an amazing set of specifications albeit for a sub Rs 20,000 device.

At this price point, it would venture into the territory of the Nexus 4, which despite being more than an year old still has a better set of specs. And just in case you were wondering if it will get the customisations it became popular for, we are sorry to say but they are not coming to India. Let us see how the consumers take on the new device.

    no 4G

      *Agreed that the moto x does not come with LTE support but hey a lot of devices dont come with LTE support and disregarding a handset just because it does not have LTE doesnt make much sense.

      *I know that having the ability to download as well as surf at speeds 25MBPs+ on LTE might sound exciting to you but these speeds come at the sacrifice of the battery.Try performing a paticular task on 2G and then perform the same task on 3G and you would notice a huge difference in the battery consumption.3G would end up eating a lot battery compared to 2G.Similarly 4G will consume even more battery compared to 3G.I clearly remember how in one of the iphone 5S reviews the author had mentioned that only by downloading 4apps and watching a High Quality 4 minute youtube video while testing the device the battery of the iphone 5S slipped from 100% at 9.00am to 10% at 12.00 pm.

      *Apart from that LTE has not even launched properly in India yet.Jio has been pushing back launch dates and even if they launch there is a possibility that they will launch in each every town/city.TIER2/TIER 3 areas would remian uncovered.

      *Anyhow its finally a matter of peronal choice.If LTE is a deal breaker for you then go for the 5S/5c/G2 LTE/xolo LT-900.

        yaar i m a huge fan of your * comments .. but let me get this plain and simple

        *why one buy phone = to talk
        *why one buy smartphoen =to enable other function with talk
        *tech r backward compatible (they should be) meaning on a 3G phone u can always switch BACK to 2G in case u notice ther is drain of battery and ‘particular task ‘.. *similarly i promise i wud use my phone ONLY for talk on a 2G network (the basic network) BUT when i am in a city with a power cable .. and desire to watch youtube and want to enjoy LATEST technology .. I WANT TO EXPERIENCE 4G .. i will catch a train or take a tour to the nearest 4G covered city ..and sooner or lator like 2G/3G/GPRS/EDGE/EVDO the technology will come to your nearest town and THEN u dont want to cry that u didnt buyed 4G phone

        *see its an IT concept that tech world is developing very fast whatever u buy will go obsolute in days to come .. so the WISE decision will be to always always ALWAYS buy the latest technology available (even futuristic)….

        * dude i was the guy who reported and provided screenshots first instance of 3G network in my city on telecomtalk .. and YES when i buy my 3G phone there was no network but with lator time .. i didnt regret …i invested right

        • Rama March 21, 2014 10:01 am

          *Yes your 100% right and in a way its my fault cos I always keep forgetting that I am at a telecom dominated website and not a tech dominated website,so having the latest and greatest in telecom matters more than tech.

          *Anyhow all I wanted to say is that the smartphone is really good and some of its features are worth praising like

          Active Display:In normal smartphones when a notification comes you have to illuminate the screen of your smartphone and have a look at the notifictaion whereas on moto x every time a notification comes,a paticular small part of the screen keeps glowing continuously until and unless the notification is looked upon.

          Moto maker;While its not fully available in India,you could still choose from a wide variety of colours and I probably guess make a combination which looks awesome.

          Always on voice command:The same is available on 4.4 smartphones as well by saying Ok Google but moto x has it in a better manner.

          Great battery life:Many people on the post have crticised the smartphone for a dual core processor but its the same dual core processor which gives it a long lasting battery.

          *I know high speed internet at a paticular place when connected to a power outlet wont affect battery life much,but then why use 4G as there are several local as well as national broadband player who provide 25MBps+ plans,you could subscribe to one of them and enjoy super fast internet at your home.Anyhow because its a telecom website I understand that 4G is a deal breaker for many for analysing purposes.Apart from that in broadband you would get dedicated speed but in case of 4G the speed would vary depending on the number of users using the network at a paticular point of time.

    Total Floppppp…. Better to go for Galaxy S3 or Nexus 4

    • hrishi March 20, 2014 9:09 pm

      I am replacing my Nexus 4 for Moto X

  • Abhishek March 19, 2014 2:14 pm

    all d spec. r really awesome like 4.4kitkat & massive design or great offer which is given by #Moto or #Flipkart !!!

  • Anurag March 19, 2014 11:14 am

    @ all those who think this phone is not good because of dual-core processor:
    This phone has a dual-core processor clocked at 1.7GHZ which, coupled with 2GB RAM, would perform much better in real world situations than Mediatek quad-cores which run at 1.2GHZ (with 1GB RAM).

  • rishi March 18, 2014 10:59 pm

    Total waste of money.
    Dual core at the price of Quad core.what a waste.
    Moto x or moto waste

    • Rama March 19, 2014 2:22 am

      *Bro I can give it to you in writing that the moto x works smooother than the most of the quad core smartphones out there.

      *See Android is only optimised to work with dual core processors.So even if you have a quad core processor in your smartphone only 2 of the 4 cores will be utilised “efficiently”.Although only 2 cores are being used but power is being given to all 4 cores in the case of a quad core processor.So from 4 cores if only 2 cores are being used then power given to the remaining 2 cores is being wasted.The wasted power in turn leads to a shorter battery life.The moto x has a dual core processor and both the cores of the dual core processor are being used efficiently,hence no or very less power waste takes place.

      *Apart from that you must also take into consideration the fact that moto x comes with a top-end Adreno 320 GPU which means graphics and gaming performance would be good.2GB of ram is more than sufficient for multi taksing.

      *The smartphone is actually one of the most innovative smartphones of 2013.Much much better than the octa core beasts like the S4 which hardly had anything innovative.

        I totally agree with you.

        I dont know why people argue about number of core.

        If the OS is properly optimized for hardware, number of core does not matter. number of cores matters only with Chinese android phones. Which they use half baked software, full of bugs…

        Iphone, Blackberry 10 and Moto X is all about software experience. Which are much better optimized devices.

        Even same applicable for Cam as well, Iphone and blackberry 8MP cam can take better pics than MMX/ Karbonn 16MP cams….


        • Rama March 20, 2014 6:31 pm

          *+1 buddy people have become so blinded by specs that they hardly take into consideration software while buying a handset these days. *the jump from single core to dual core was significant because android was optimised for dual core and ever since then people have had a perception that more cores mean more power but thats not true.People should actually be appreciating motorola for the moto x because its one of the very few smartphones concentrating on software and motorola has added features to moto s that are actually useful in daily lives and not like samsung whose so called features are only gimmicks meant for attracting people and they dont even work properly.

  • Darshan March 18, 2014 10:53 pm

    Dual Core processor is only the defect while all other specs like AMOLED screen & NFC at 24k makes it best phone…

    • Rama March 19, 2014 2:24 am

      *its not really a defect bro,rather its a plus point.

      *See generally why people argue over quad and dual and octa core processors is because of performance but the moto x has already proven itself smoother than a lot of quad core phones out there.

      • Darshan March 21, 2014 12:10 am

        U r right….Saw many reviews on it on internet…

  • RAJESH March 18, 2014 8:49 pm

    Does it support Airtel 4G and upcomming Reliance jio band????

    • pravin vardhan March 18, 2014 8:57 pm

      No….its a 3rd version

      • pravin vardhan March 18, 2014 8:59 pm

        No . its 3g version

  • hrishi March 18, 2014 8:47 pm

    Definitely buying Moto X Teak.Awesome phone

    • Kanaga Deepan N March 18, 2014 9:39 pm

      Teak is the last but one in the pic, which comes in white body only, afaik. Go for walnut one which is in last. Combined with black colour body, it is a very hot looking phone for sure…

  • Prithvi March 18, 2014 8:34 pm

    Going for Black.
